Zachary's Lifetime Dresser #4: The computer model is complete

01-01-2013 11:15 PM by Weth | 1 comment »

Dear Me, I have spent much of the day completing the 3D model of the dresser. I have used similar construction found in the curio cabinet we have that is amish made. I had originally intended that the dresser have 3 false drawers across the top and I found it did not look right. 4 false drawers look much better. Here is the link to the sketch up model.SketchUp 8 Next on the list of to do’s is to make a cut list. Then I can go about sourcing the wood. Weth.

Kitchen redo #1: My Big Kitchen Project

I have been busy these last six months working on my kitchen redo. I ripped out all the old cabinets and have been replacing them with QSWO cabinets that I have been making in my shop.

My jointer, table saw, dust collector, and planer have all lost 50 lbs each with the workout that I have gave them. This is the before kitchen..Nasty! Here is a couple of pictures of the butlers ...

I took my time going through all their stock to choose the straightest grain dowels. the ideal would be to make my own from riven white oak, but the red oak work...

Clydesdale and Colt - Intarsia Woodworking

03-11-2013 03:29 PM by Chris Mobley | 2 comments »

A customer saw a recent horse project that I had completed and wanted a horse done for their wif...

I basically have just taken it all apart and cleaned it up. It was pretty rough when I picked it up off Ebay. I got it for 6 bucks and about 12 for the shipping. So for about 20 dollars I think I picked up a good deal.So far I sanded it all and polished the screws frog ext. I left the adjusting knob on and polished that the best I could. I didn’...
