Hepplewhite Stand #1: What's Wrong With This Picture

12-03-2016 09:10 PM by Ron Aylor | 15 comments »

 So, my bride comes to me this morning asking, “what’s wrong with this picture?”   Realizing that it had been quite a few years since my first Hepplewhite stand, I committed to build another to even out the look of our bedroom. The first stand, built in 1997, has red oak legs, hackberry sides and drawer font, and a sassafras top. It was finished with shellac and beeswax. The top has been re-waxed several times over the years and is in need of a touch up. As to the new stand,...

My journey to building interior doors for the house #1: The Beginning

12-03-2016 05:38 AM by RichTaylor | 4 comments »

We moved into a house built in 1994 last November. It’s a great house with some nice remodeling already done, but the doors were hollow core and we wanted to replace them. Our first stop was to some local Tucson window and door companies. Wow, talk about sticker shock! We had nine doors to replace, and good quality ones were upwards of $1K each. We also found the handyman places that had doors that were solid wood for about $400 each. The thing is, it was a veneer over pine lumb...

Homemade Punch Plate for Makita BO4900V 1/2 Sheet Sander

12-03-2016 04:59 AM by RichTaylor | 0 comments »

I’m sold on Makita sanders. I’ve owned Porter Cable sanders going back decades. Is it that mine are old and tired, or is Makita superior? I don’ t know. I do know that these Makitas are real workhorses and the fact that even the fractional sheet models have dust collection makes them perfect for me. I’m really impressed with the dust collection on the Makita RO sander model BO5041. I have a Jet dust collector and a shop vac, but I hate having a hose to deal wit...

I finished the cabinets and got them in their new home. Just in time before the rain started pouring. New top and face frame rail on the 2nd base cabinet. Drilling some pocket holes for the rail. Putting the frame together. I really enjoy using pocket screws they are easy to do, fast, and strong. After mounting the face frame back to the cabinet next thing was to cut the doors down. On the tablesaw sled. You can see how my left side of the saw is limited in ...
