A little more progress made on the closet. All the joinery was cut, a few dados and rabbits along with two bevels to the panels and some biscuits. A full interior sanding and dry fit followed by the glue-up. The glue up took place in three phases. The top two parts were glued up first then once that was dry the bottom and sides were done with the top assembly dry fit in place to the sides, and then the top assembly was glued to the sides. I added some structural members to the top sectio...
Hello All, It was strange how both Tom and Ralph sent me things today, which I seemed to need. I am not sure how they knew I was in peril (ok that may be to strong a word, slightly confused would be more accurate), but they came through. Thanks! http://su.pr/1k1Cfz Brian

Just wanted to reach out and thank everyone on Lumberjocks for making me feel welcome. I am very surprised that I haven’t stumbled across this site before now. I was actually doing a search in Google when I came across this site forum and wanted to sign up instantly.

Thanks for all of you who have watched my progress in this series and helped me out along the way. Here’s the final installment. Mostly, I want to impress upon everyone the value of using Google SketchUp. I kind of forced myself to learn the basics in order to design this project and it was well worth it.
A pile of lumber….Gathering materials, working out cut lists and design…..Man, why can’t we just fire up the equipment and get going. Well, to begin with, there are other projects that are trying to get done and can’t get going in shop til all the materials get delivered. Be it as it may, we were able to begin cutting on the carcases of the lower bookcases this afternoon. It is so rewarding to look at a pile of lumber and see what kind of shape and display it tr...
Right Click to DownloadRight Click to Download in HDSubscription Options In the past, I’ve discussed how shop improvements are never done. As our needs and tool preferences change, the shop has to be able to adjust accordingly. If not, you will likely be faced with an inefficient and potentially unsafe work environment. If you can believe it, its already been over a year since Nicole and I moved into our new house. And for those that don’t know, we are indeed still carrying ...
I have worked in the woodworking industry for the past 40 years. During that time I have been exposed to a lot of different woodworking machines and techniques and have grown to love woodworking. I have also been a hobby woodworker for all of those years although I haven’t had the opportunity to pursue this part of woodworking as much as I would have liked because of the time constraints forced on me by my career in the industry and my lack of an adequate place to pursue it such as a well equ...
Well, not really, but I have the capability now… I’ve been wanting to make a sort of Router Table ever since Bob Kollman sent me a care package of Plastics… No matter what idea I finally decide upon, all of my thought’s unifying theme is using the plastic as the top…So I took a couple hours this morning to finally make the top or work surface…I marked the locations of the screws with the 1/4” scuff plate that was on the Router and simply made an exten...
