Well the wood has been planed down and ripped to width. I am going to start cutting to length tomorow. I still need to buy the glass and plywood back. I need to work out the pocket hole joinery yet. One question for all those who have built these before. How did you join the bottom piece? Did you allow for possible glass breakage in the future? Thanks for reading

starting my kitchen cabinets

1828 days ago by woodchic | 78 comments »

Hi everybody…....My husband finally got the floor finished…...he did a fantastic job I might add and now…..I finally sucked up enough courage to get started on my kitchen cabinets. The kitchen and dining area is 14 ft wide x 24.6 ft long. My cabinets are made of plywood and my face frames and doors are made out of hickory. I have never worked on a set of kitchen cabinets before, so I am pretty much learning this on my own. I have a friend on here that gives me advice whe...

Kitchen Furniture #1: Kitchen Table

1828 days ago by Ackdaddy | 5 comments »

My wife and I bought a foreclosure about a year ago and are about 75% done with the plans that we set forth in the beginning. The kitchen is completely redone, along with the living room and our expectant baby’s nursery. The bathrooms are in process along with our bedroom. I’ve sort of taken a break from the home improvement aspect and gotten into a lot more woodworking. I find my hands to be a lot more steady than ever, and my accuracy much improved. So now I am making a k...

digital readouts for router lifts

1828 days ago by woodsmithshop | 1 comment »

has anyone used a DIGIMAG DIGITAL REMOTE READOUT on a router lift? how about the WIXEY digital readout for router lifts?EAGLE AMERICA has the DIGIMAG for sale for $50, and the WIXEY for $70, I was just wondering if one may be better than the other, if $20 difference was worth it either way.I think Amazon has them for the same price.thanks for any info anyone may have to offer.

Black walnut pencil post bed

1828 days ago by RnG | 3 comments »

I’m in the middle of this project, using walnut that I helped my dad cut some 30 years ago and has been in a barn drying ever since. I’m making this full size bed for my one twin daughter, as she asked me to do it. This is really my first major furniture project ever and has been quit the learning experience. I’ll post pix ASAP. All pieces are cut and sanded, now I’m going to fill the pores with orange shellac and sanding and then do a French polish finish on the m...

Weight organizer

1828 days ago by kosta | 0 comments »

In this episode I build a weight organizer for all of the free weights. It only took about 2 hours to build which is not a lot of time. I changed my design 2 times and Im glad I did because my original design would not have worked. I use 2 2×4s and 2 12 in 2×4s for the base.

Out of the shop, and in to the yard...

1828 days ago by dbhost | 6 comments »

After several aborted attempts to manually dig out the stumps that came from the trees that Hurricane Ike blew over from the Bayou behind the house and through my fence, I finally found something that people I actually know have used with repeatable success… The product is called Bonide 272 Stump Out, and the instructions for application are actually quite straight forward. Step #1. Drill a 1” diameter hole 12” straight down into the stump. (1 hole for each 6” st...

Arts & Crafts Night Stands #3: Some Assembly Required...

1828 days ago by CaptainSkully | 4 comments »

Today, I took the rough parts and managed to achieve a few dry fits. The first one was to make sure the dadoes and tenons fit. The second one was to see how it looked with the bow cut out of the bottom piece and with the pre-finished panels installed. A couple of thoughts: be sure your table saw is waxed properly when cutting tenons like this. It helps if you don’t have to use force to push the piece through the saw. I realized I’m already using some of the stuff I learne...

Barn Tales ….and so i sit,watching the pages of my mind,un-fold before my eyes in splendor, surrounded by this old barn and it’s love…. ….old wood and new wood gathered here,calling out my name to come and rest a while,and so after a day of work i leave all behind,to visit with an old friend as friends will do…. ….no-secrets between us but what tales we tell,stories of what has been and our dreams to come,shared feelings of how it might have been done,and the pa...

General Rambling... #2: Happiness is a finished project...

1828 days ago by John M | 4 comments »

I’m putting this entry in my General Rambling section because I don’t want to screw up the order of the Secret Compartment Toy Box series…. I know that only those who would be in a forum like this can truly understand the feeling of assembling a project that you’ve worked hard on to find that everything has come together just as you envisioned. Tonight that happened for me and my most ambitious project yet, the secret compartment toy box. Now, I know for some of...
