The Kitchen Project #1: The First Cabinet Door Attempt

11-30-2009 12:05 AM by End_Grain | 8 comments »

As you can see, my wife’s current kitchen cabinets are nothing to cluck about. They’re 35 years old, original. They were probably as ugly then as they are now. This is the final room that we haven’t remodeled yet. Everything is built into the house. The cabinets themselves are extremely stout. If I had the desire, I could do chin-ups off the shelving and they would not flex. This is my first raised panel door attempt. A lot of learning curve on the first. First tim...

Trying Something New

11-29-2009 06:37 AM by darryl | 12 comments »

In taking a break from the wine bottle stoppers I’ve been making, I wanted to make something that I haven’t done yet. I’ve always been very impressed with the vessels that trifern has posted, so I thought I would start there. Now don’t go thinking that just because it’s not a wine bottle stopper that I’ll be turning a single piece of wood. Heck no, a segmenting we will go! This piece is 6” tall and about 3-3/4” in diameter at its wides...

Wood Whisperer Out Feed Table #1: Inspiration, Research, and SketchUp Drawing

11-29-2009 06:13 AM by Brad_Nailor | 16 comments »

Well I have been so focused on getting my new old Unisaw tweaked and settled in it’s new home I forgot that I need some essentials for it’s operation. I wanted to fire it up and try and cut some big slabs of birch butcher block to test its power, but I realized one thing…they are big pieces and I don’t have an out feed table! So, basically I cant cut anything bigger than 10 inches…and what fun is that? So I was browsing through the projects and came upon this pro...

This is the first peice of furniture I have designed and built. It is a small table to sit between my parents two recliners. The slide out drawer will contain a small trash can that can be hidden when not in use. It is made of red oak. Trying to match some of the furniture thay have I made the profile around the top using the table saw, a 1/2” round over bit, and a 1/4” round nose bit. It still needs to be sanded down and will be stained pecan. The top is recessed for a piec...
