Kitchen Cabinets #2: They call it labor day for a reason....

09-06-2010 10:14 PM by Kerry Drake | 1 comment »

I finished the kitchen cabinets on schedule and my brother and sister-in-law came up this weekend and attacked the project with gusto… First the sheet rock came down, and then most of the wall studs came out. Then the carpet and the kitchen floor had to be cut back to the subfloor level so cabinets could sit down where they needed to be. Once the final dimensions were figured out, the end post to support the overhead beam went in place (the beam was pocket screwed i...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #95: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Stars

09-06-2010 01:41 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

Finally. A Monday that people like. With the Labor Day holiday both here and in the United States, most everyone in these countries have the day off. However, with the Labor Day holiday comes the realization that summer is coming to a close and winter is not far off. I am certain that there will be plenty of grumblings about that on my facebook page. They already have started. I am ready for fall and winter. The past week was enough summer for me. I guess I found something that I di...

Secret Soss: A simple Soss hinge jig #4: Adding a precision fence: ready to use

09-06-2010 05:57 AM by newTim | 4 comments »

The fence sits underneath the templates and is used to register the jig against the back of the box and securely clamp the jig to the box. The Soss 203 requires a 1/8” space between the back of the hinge and the back of the box. Since the hinge is 1/2”, the centerline of the hinge must be 3/8” from the back. It is important that the fence be square to the template otherwise the hinges, hence the box lid, will be crooked. I cut a piece of 3/4” plywood about the widt...
