Kitchen Cabinets #4: How I cut my shelf pins

10-16-2008 07:38 PM by Dan Lyke | 7 comments »

For the cabinets, I wanted movable shelves. I was told that the Euro style round pins “looked tacky”, and I didn’t want to run tracks, but I’d run across a note by Charles Wilson suggesting the use of Dominos for shelf pins, and that seemed like a great idea. I cut a strip of wood the width of the spacing I wanted, cut it in half, put a lip on each one so that I could place it on the edge of my carcase sides and it’d protrude over at 90 degrees. Then it was j...

Piece Size – Critical – and - Not Critical

10-16-2008 06:28 PM by WoodMosaics | 4 comments »

The size doesn’t really mater, they just have to all be the same AND they have to match up with the triangle and any pieces of another size you may use along with them. The reason I go with .734 or 47/64” is some of the boards I was getting were just under ¾”. I cut the strips off the edge of a board and from those strips, I cut my pieces, so I want to be able to then get the strip to the right width, and if it starts out to narrow, I can’t. Now when I use the half size pieces with the re...

Kitchen Cabinets #3: Pantry shelves temporarily in place

10-16-2008 04:42 PM by Dan Lyke | 2 comments »

This should really probably go over at Home Refurbers, but I started this series here, so I’ll continue it. Amidst everything else, I got the pantry shelves (not really a pantry, but since that’s the function of these shelves, that’s what we’re calling them) finished. Still need to make the doors, but that can wait; at least we’ve got the huge unweildy particle board monstrosities that we bought from a store going out of business that were there temporarily out o...

Hard lessons #5: Step Away From the Random Orbital Sander!

10-16-2008 04:41 AM by mhawkins2 | 3 comments »

After edge profiling a 5’ piece of Jatoba and very very carefully cutting a miter frame for 10” x 10” panel, I was rather pleased with myself. It was by no means the perfect miter, but it certainly will not haunt my dreams the way some of my past ones have. I I did my dry fit and then a little victory dance. After the victory dance I thought,”I should lightly sand the frame before glue up because it will be harder later and I might slip and go across the face grain ...

Hard lessons #4: In Search of the Perfect Miter

10-16-2008 04:25 AM by mhawkins2 | 8 comments »

I am beginning to think that a dead on PERFECT miter is about like big foot or the Loch Ness monster. We’ve all heard of it, a few claim to have achieved it, most of us probably don’t believe it. I am an engineer in occupation and by nature, so when I say perfect; I mean PERFECT. Dead on 45 degree not 44.99 nor 45.01. The vertical face of the wood is completely vertical as is the blade so the sides don’t tilt. And the wood is absolutely of consistent thickness so the re...

My woodworing ideas and tips #12: Making a box tutorial

10-16-2008 02:23 AM by Betsy | 5 comments »

Oldfolks – aka – John asked me about making a table saw sled for his new saw and if I could do a tutorial on how to make a sled like the one I have. Unfortunately, I’m not quite physically able for such a big project yet. However, I told him that I would show him how to make a great box using his miter gauge and just some scraps from his shop. So this blog is for John and I hope it will help him learn to make boxes and will help others to see that you do not need all those f...

Norms Router Cabinet #7: Router Table Top Design

10-16-2008 12:04 AM by sIKE | 3 comments »

I have been working out the design for the top for my router cabinet. I am going to build the fence as per Norms plans, the outside slots. But I am also going to use an Incra Original Jig and fence system, the T-tracks sitting behind the router plate. The design of the cabinet is not offset for the Incra Original jig , so I had to make the back bulge out about 5 1/2” to accommodate jig and it’s base panel. I have been thinking about modifying the bulge so it is attached to ...
