Thorsen House Cabinet #7: Putting it to the wood!

03-27-2015 05:33 PM by EläväPuu | 0 comments »

Hi everyone! I’ve been somewhat out of radio contact due to pressing work for my degree and working on a business startup…. Between then (when was the last post?) and now, the entire piece was constructed in Solidworks, had the bugs refined out (mostly avoiding work overcomplication and basic logistics), ripped apart and reconstructed. Very little has changed from the original dimensions and layout. The recipient of the largest changes were the doors in terms of the muntin/mull...

Tool Cabinet Build #13: Getting Back At It...

04-03-2015 02:28 AM by Airframer | 3 comments »

Aside from this being the second longest build on LJ’s next to Stef’s workbench build, I have finally started back to work on this cabinet. We last left off with me finding out that I need to learn front from back. The rabbets cut for the back were actually done on the front of the top and bottom panels. After a year and a half of pretending the problem would fix it’s self I finally ripped the offending section off and glued up a new strip of wood. Cut a couple new dov...

Little Bathroom Remodel - Lumberjocks style #2: I'm a bit behind.

04-06-2015 01:19 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 4 comments »

Rainy weekends. Working weekends. Family events. I’m definitely not complaining about family events, but the others can just go away thank you very much. In my first entry on this blog, I showed some images of my bathroom countertop. I had just taken the camps off when I received some excellent advice from my friend Gary. Yup, he said “If you glue that top to a plywood substrate, the substrate will be relatively stable while the surface expands and contracts.” Yup. ...

Evolution of a Shop #43: Drill press cart part 1

04-14-2015 03:03 PM by Cory | 7 comments »

I wanted to build a new cart that took better advantage of the space underneath my benchtop drill press. The one I had been using was a scavenged find. It looks like there are a 5 drawers, but it’s actually 3. They’re made from 3/4” material, they’re narrow and deep, and don’t have full extension slides, so they don’t function well for small parts. The one I built is a little lower, wider, and has full extension slides so I can get to everything in the...

Lumber Storage/Shop improvements #2: Continuing on with the lumber storage

04-18-2015 01:28 AM by McDade | 2 comments »

Wow that first post got a little wordy (I should really learn to take more/better pictures) well moving right along. So we have the upper shelf section done now with the design I am going for I want to tuck my vertical storage underneath it and behind my movable sheet goods cart. Depth here is going to be an issue (I have bid shop envy) as we still only have 2’ to work with so lets consider what kind of space that cart will take up. I have decided the base of my cart will be a 2...

Pergola #6: The best laid plans...

04-26-2015 09:40 PM by Bermuda_Les | 6 comments »

I’d love to be able to say that all went well in this weekends pergola work, but sadly that’s not the case. The jig performed as expected, and dare I say was doing a grand job until all of a sudden something went horribly wrong. The wood was just to much for the equipment. Either the 3” pattern bit (1/2”) bent or I’ve forever damaged the shaft of my $300 – $400 Bosch router, I’m hoping it’s the bit. But it suddenly started to vibrate uncon...

Farmhouse Table w_Buffet #5: Table, Buffet Tops

05-04-2015 03:19 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 6 comments »

Bought 12’ 2×6s at the local lumber yard, brought them into the shop and cut them into even 6’ lengths via RAS, … ensuring every end was from the saw, nice and square. Jointed the seven boards needed for the table using the #8 and a square, a process discussed in detail in the previous installment. 20/20 hindsight, but I should have addressed the radius corners of the 2×4s by ripping them before jointing, but I didn’t do that until the second (buffet) build. Here’s the...

Pergola #8: A slight miscalculation...

05-11-2015 02:56 PM by Bermuda_Les | 0 comments »

Well this was the weekend that the pergola was to be completed. But the slight miscalculation was that I forgot it was “Mother’s Day” this weekend. And my presence at the “Mother’s Day” lunch was not to be missed. As many of you may know, if the mamma duck ain’t happy, ain’t NOBODY happy. So had to spend about 4 hours on “other than pergola” work. Anyway, left son Dave to continue on in my absence, but as he was working alone...
