So at first I was only going to post this as a completed project, but I felt that in order to keep from saturating that post with too many photos, I would also post this as a blog. Plus it might inspire me to add a bit of dialogue about the process. This is the completed project. This is the space that I started with. So I have a pretty small house with a fairly small kitchen, in which we have my girlfriend’s table and four chairs. The problem we were running into is that when ...
Yes, painting it, so it matches the Inspiration piece. Filler of holes, sanding, oil-based primer then oil-based paint. Quick set of phots, with another to come first thing tomorrow AM, when the paInt’s dry. Here’s the brown shell with the Inspiration piece in the background. Bottom line is, I want these two tool cabInets to appear to be from the same ‘set’ when this build is done…
While laying out the boards for my cabinet doors… http://secondwindworkshop.blogspot.com/2012/06/split-ends.html
Hello friends. After more failure with the wooden screws I decided to order some dust collection attachments for the router and order some more maple dowels. While I waited for those to come in I worked on the top and legs. Here is a quick pictorial tour of my progress. Flattened the top. This is the first real workout for the #7! Worked great. Square edges, stool as board jack. First real workout for the #5 to. I love it, it really gets the work done fast! I decided a 2.5” to...

The box I refer to is Pandora’s, when opened as “off topic” it releases all the ills that permeate this once fine site. By nature we are all curious, so we open the forum and are subjected to non wood related BS and name calling.I have noticed many long time members no longer posting and giving valuable opinion and advice. I notice many of our former overseas members no longer showing up.Yes there is freedom of speech and we all have an opinion that someone does not agree wi...
Those of you who have read The Anarchist's Tool Chest may find the following story familiar. It was only after this project was underway that I realized that my life had strangely paralleled author Christopher Schwarz’s for a moment. It’s morning. My wife and I are starting the day: sipping coffee, stirring oatmeal and wondering whether we should wake our nearly three year old. Our eleven month old is keeping us company in the kitchen of our 1 1/2 bedroom apartment. She is sitt...
Not a bad day in the shop today….As I opened up the door to my shop after taking, what seemed to be an eternity, a few days off I gazed at the monstrousities that laid in waiting. Today, however, I took a different approach. I figured I’d focus on just one chest instead of doing the dual-tandem, goat-roap, dysfunctional method. Lets start off with the smaller chest and work our way out.As a recap, both of these tombs are warped and not even close to square. the tools, materia...
Sawstop PCS1.75 ordered (my wife ordered it for my b-day), I’m picking it up tomorrow night, my shop is cleaned and ready and I’ve invited my Dad over on the weekend to help assemble. Very excited!
This is my first real attempt at considering wood grain for every element of a project. Everything I’ve read about “designing with the grain” suggests that putting this effort in before you begin the project will really help bring the end result to that “fine furniture level.” Enough with the quotes. This was a royal pain in the @ss. I thought I ordered 50% extra wood because I’m new at this sorta thing and I wanted to leave plenty of room for flaws, ...
