In my search for prefinished material for a future kitchen ( my first ) . I have found some suppliers in sacramento for the plywood. The drawer material is somewhat hard to find and pricey. The direction I’m thinking of going here is to buy 1/2’’ prefinished ply and then use prefinished edge banding for the top edge of the drawers. I know its a minor detail but I want to find and try all the materials first before I actually start. I’m going to make some end tables...
I built this fir chest for JOE the Man that supplys me with the Fir (( see his link on my page TIMBERSPAN)), his wife is verry pleased with it , and she wants 2 more….
I have had this Leigh dovetail jig for more than a year and have yet to tune it so I can use it.From wood stuff 2010When I first got it it was an old D4R so I upgraded the clamp mechanism and added a bit of adhesive sandpaper to the clamp bars.The first couple times that I tried this machine I found that the wood wanted to slide under the clamp bars so I put sandpaper strips to control that .I also had difficulty the 1/4 inch shank bits that I had on hand were sliding out of the collet adapte...
I am going to a woodworking class in April in Kentucky. I am a novice woodworker and I am getting nervous. I will be making a small table with a dovetail drawer. I have never made a table or a dovetail. I figured I better try here at home so I bought some poplar and have started a table. The glue up on the table top went well and I am having fun with the plane trying to make it nice and smooth. I hope there is some thickness to it when I am done. I discovered that I should have made the morti...
I feel like this project has taken forever, but when you have limited time and work on another project in the middle I guess it does. I have everything done but the Spar Polyurethane for the top (first coat was applied this morning). I chose spar for the top because it may be subject to spilled liquids being used in a kitchen. Here are some pictures of “almost finished cabinet”. A second view. A third view. And a view of closed cabinet. After painting with milk paint I...
I love the people here. And I am amazed on how many blog and posts there are. Didn’t really notice until the other day. I’ve been in the hospital the biggest part of the last 3 weeks. It’s taken me the better half of 3 days going through the stuff, and I’m still not done. But thats ok I really enjoy reading them..
So ever since I got bitten by the woodworking bug, the wife has been tolerant but hardly supportive. I can understand that, since I’ve mostly been spending money on tools, and spending time in the garage. So I was pleasantly surprised today when she agreed to let me use my minimal woodworking skills to makeover our home office, something we’ve been thinking about for a long time. Originally, we were planning on simply getting a desk and storage system from Ikea (I know, I k...

Here are the parts laid out for assembly: From Red Acetate Pen A pen press can help oreint the parts so they press together squarely, ensuring all interfaces are seamless. Here, the point is pressed into the lower blank. From Red Acetate Pen The most important step of the whole process happens here. The transmission advances the ball of t...
