Why buy it when you can make it! #10: Dresser Rehab [Part 1] - 3 years of procrastination taking a toll & Microsoft Project to the rescue!

3 days ago by paxorion | 3 comments »

This project series will be documenting (hopefully) the end of 3 years of project procrastination. When we found out we were having a girl (back in May 2011), my wife had this grand design vision of a modern vintage furniture theme in her room. One of the focal points she has been on the prowl for, was an old dresser to “upcycle”. Fast forward 2.5 years later (November 2013), she finally find a dresser on Craigslist that fits the design aesthetic she was looking for. After g...

Mike and Pat's Kitchen Remodel #5: Installing the upper Cabinets

3 days ago by MT_Stringer | 6 comments »

Not bad for a lazy Sunday afternoon’s work. We have installed everything I have assembled. I will have to make a 1/8th – 3/16 inch filler strip to fit where the cabinet clamps are. I held off building the cabinet for above the refrigerator. I need some good measurements…and probably a thin filler strip also. Dang crooked walls. Getting old and having bad knees can make this work unpleasant at times. Fortunately, my helper still has plenty of get up and go! Plus it’s...

Tool Chest Refurb #20: A Piece of the Puzzle Arrives

3 days ago by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 18 comments »

Hello, and wecome back to this blog series! Installment #20 deals not with a modification to the actual structure of the chest, but with a change in contents that improved functionality. One of the items I’m convinced needs to be in the tool chest is a full-sized framing square. You know what I’m talking about, as there are thousands of these tools out there, and likely several in every shop across America. Now that’s not to say we all know how to actually use the devise ...

3 days ago by bandit571 | 3 comments »

And on the tool chest! Got up this morning, and got the lid out of the clamps. Had some clean up to do on it from squeeze outs. Couple of joints needed to be flatter. Marked out for some screw holes on the trim pieces, and checked the fit. Miter joints needed afine tuning. Screws were deep set. Might go back and add plugs…..someday. Both corners were looking good Just one side piece was a hair too long. Trimmed it to size. Glue and screws to fasten the trim i...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #24: Slow start

4 days ago by PhilBello | 3 comments »

I thought I had built up enough tools to complete most tasks, as I said in my last post, I am starting, by erecting fencing, to make more room in the workshop to work on the Kiosko roof, I have been brought to a grinding halt by the lack of a 5/8” drill bit, I have a masonry one, but also need one for wood. However some of the cutting got underway, I used my sliding compound mitre saw to cut the posts, but I haven’t got a mitre station, so what do I do, to be honest I haven...

Tool Box #2: lid building

4 days ago by bandit571 | 6 comments »

and panel raisin’ Got the Pine panel out of the clamps. Hand planed to as flat as I could get in. Time to raise a panel. Same way as the side panels. Mark out a “stop line” about 1” in from the edge. Take a #4 sized handplane, set it a bit deep. Go at a diagonal to the grain. Plane until you reach the stop line, check the remainder of the edge for straightness. As you get close to the finish line, back off the depth of cut. I do the end grain ...
