https://youtu.be/F_DVxQajLrA Project 3 for my 2016 students. A corner cabinet.
It is now 8:50 pm. I just came in from gluing the wedge piece to the corner block material. From that board I will cut the corner blocks to match exactly the lengths to the skirts from behind the legs. They will be fastened to the skirt, I think, with pocket screws. The skirts will be fastened to the underside of the bottom case panel with pocket screws. The skirts butt up to the legs with beveled ends at 45 degrees. I forget how I fastened the legs to the bottom board. I will look at tw...
I started building this cabinet with the idea that It would organize all my miscellaneous tools that were spread out all over my shop. If it ends up not looking awful when complete that would be a bonus as well. Not being ugly was going to be a challenge since Im just using whatever scrap wood I have laying around. I had the rough idea that I wanted it to look somewhat like a traditional hand tool cabinet, but was planning on using it for machine accessories primarily. It’s loc...
Once I freed up a few clamps it was simply a matter of adding the end edge, Screwed in a center strengthening strip and it was done for a while awaiting for the glue to dry. By afternoon I had it finished construction wise and just edge finishing required so I ran around the sides with a template router bit, filled the various holes then sanded to finish and applied sanding sealer. Filled a few holes but left the resin vein The other end Thats it for blog s...
I am designing the legs for Jenny’s walnut nightstand. The legs need to flare out at the bottom, like an inch or more. The legs need to stay within the boundaries of the case they will be attached to above. I use my knowledge of trigonometry to calculate what angle the 17 1/2 inch long legs should flare out. I know that I will be tapering these legs similar to Shaker furniture. However, I will only taper the inner edge of these legs. The taper will begin at or just under the skirt an...
When I originally built the four new chevalets the school didn’t have an official name so I branded them with my usual cypher, PRM. Following the first round of classes last fall it became The Canadian School of French Marquetry so I decided to rebrand the chevalets. Here’s where it becomes a story about the virtues of hide glue. I was able to rehydrate the old glue holding the ciphers onto the chevy face plates and remove them without damage by applying hot water and driving i...
A Dream I can’t even begin to explain how grateful I am for a widow that I have never met that dropped a box of tools on my front porch. Warms my soul to know that there are people out there that understand craftsmanship and want it to continue. I wrote a note of thanks for all to read at the shared link above.
Making progress!! Got tons done today… have several 50 gallon drums full of trash, as well as several contractor bags … accumulating a ridiculous amount of empty cardboard boxes, as well as lots of empty containers, rubber maids, hampers, orange wawa crates, etc… Just wanted to add something cool that I found while cleaning… Came upon this little ‘gem’: Anyway soooo tired. So much stuff… I just want to build things out of wo...
A few weeks ago I bought a Excalibur 16 scrollsaw. I’m more than satisfied with the saw cut quality and it is a pleasure to work with the Excalibur. However to fasten and loosen the thumb screw is painful. And searching the internet it got clear to me that I wasn’t the only one which had a problem with the thumbscrew. I also found a video from Steve Good and after I had seen it I made a comparable handle. Thanks for watching.
