Baby Cradle #4: Creating the jig for the top rail

12-03-2009 06:10 AM by Bob Giovannini | 0 comments »

It has been a couple weeks but tonight was able to get back to the project. The top rail is going to be a flowing curve, so needed to create a jig for the glue-up. Step (1): glued two 3/4 inch plywood pieces Step (2): cut into oval to match top railStep (3): cut 2×4 into pieces to create curve to which the top rail will be glued I still need to cut the angle on each of the pieces and affix them to the base. Next step: turning the spindles!

Sketch This! #4: Ottoman/Coffee Table

02-03-2010 06:06 PM by John Steffen | 6 comments »

While I’m not one for sitting on the couch too often, I’m inclined to watch a couple shows during the week with my lady (if I don’t watch TV with her at least one or two night a week she gets grumpy). And then there’s Sundays during football season, but that’s a different story. Anyway, we have traditional couches, no recliners, and a very hard/pointy coffee table. And to be honest I like having a coffee table MOST of the time. But there are times where I r...

Building the 21st Centure Bench - Manini Style #2: Setting Up for the Work

03-04-2010 08:03 PM by FrankoManini | 1 comment »

I’ve been working some insane hours, and thankfully, I’ve managed to take a few days off to recouperate and re-focus for the next week or two, which could be just as nasty. The other night I went down to the shop to get some work done, and realized that I needed to do some cleanup. I spent a bunch of time getting tools put away, sharpened, and tuned. After reading this review to my bandsaw, I decided to make a modification to the saw that I had wanted to do for some time now....

prefinished edge banding

03-14-2010 07:11 PM by 308Gap | 2 comments »

In my search for prefinished material for a future kitchen ( my first ) . I have found some suppliers in sacramento for the plywood. The drawer material is somewhat hard to find and pricey. The direction I’m thinking of going here is to buy 1/2’’ prefinished ply and then use prefinished edge banding for the top edge of the drawers. I know its a minor detail but I want to find and try all the materials first before I actually start. I’m going to make some end tables...

Things I hate

03-26-2010 05:29 AM by janice | 20 comments »

Have you ever built anything you’ve hated from day one? Well, this time I have. My entertainment center. Really just a TV stand now. But I was looking so forward to building this and started it over already once, well maybe twice. Nothing is going right on this thing. It should have never have taken me this long and all I want to do is burn it. I think I’ve learned some lessons with this project though.I need a planer. That’s one lesson I learned. I could go on, but ...

Workshop Build #15: Making an interior window

04-22-2010 03:40 PM by ~Julie~ | 2 comments »

As said in the previous post, my shop has a front room that is divided from the shop with a wall and doorway. I decided I would like an interior window between the shop and door so that I could see into the front room while in the shop, plus to allow me more natural light. While framing the wall, we used 16” OC studs but left a wider opening between the 2”x6”s where I wanted the window to be ( I believe it was about 24”). OSB was put over the wall on the shop sid...
