Getting things put together, Finally!! Sides have been “fixed”, front and back panels are done. Needed to drill some counter-bored pilot holes to assemble the sides to the front and back. Small forstner bit for a counter bore in the Drill press. Haul the slab of the front to the press, go to drill the first hole….table tilts! So, dig through the tool boxes, find the right sized wrench, and tilting table tilts no more. Got the front and backs drilled, time for som...
I’ve been wanting to build a bench for a long time now. My brother bought me a LV large vise quite awhile ago which had been the major money stumbling block at the time. Well life happens and I never built the bench. I have been using an old oak table that I had scrounged from somewhere, here it is: So today being “Louis Reil Day”...an excuse for the government to give us a day off in February… I figured I’d catch up on some projects that have been sittin...
I’ve been remaking all of my sister’s raised panel Oak doors for her kitchen cabinets. There are about 25 of them and I’ve got them 2/3 completed over the past few months working on and off. Today I was working on three of them; long ones. Rails and stiles came out fine and I had to glue up two boards to make the center raised panels. While I was routing the edge of the raised panels two of them chipped out enough so that I can’t use them. This has happened once befor...
I’m at the final stages of the build. The next step was to assemble the drawers. Nothing fancy . . . I just butted the pieces together with a little homemade glue and nailed them them with 23g pin nails. The button pull on the front are actually oak button plugs that I had left over from another project. I drilled a hole through the drawer front (after finding the center), drilled a hole in the back of the pull and then screwed it on from the back of the drawer front. DW then r...
An absolutley brilliant winters Day here in Brisbane, and although I dont usually disturb the peace of a Sunday I decided to do some more work on the prototype stool..First up I forgot to post a picture of the rough stock I made the stool from.So here is a reconstiited section fro the original 4 m piece From it I resawed everything to make the stool. Now onward to the front legs I marked out a rough concept and cut them out with the bandsaw. Both legs are clamped together to ...
Aug 20, 2008 The Hinge Saga ContinuesWell I was on the search for “hinges” or something that would work on my wee door and so I used up some ga$oline to drive to town to one of the building stores. $3 for four hinges. $3—- I’m not going to pay $3 on hinges! And so I burn some more fuel and head off to the next building store. They didn’t even have hinges small enough for my purpose. Next.. more gas$ consumption and I go to the dollar store. I bought a smal...
I’ve finally completed the toybox and will post pictures of it hopefully tonight. I’ve also managed to knock out other projects recently including basement storage shelving, garage storage shelves, and finally hanging some drapes in the family room. the drapes was the scariest part since they are 17 feet long and I have to climb up on a ladder just to hang the rods for them. So on my overall list here’s where I’m at: Entertainment Center – designed to match ...
(This is actually part 4, but I messed up setting its Series until after I had part 5 written, which got added as part 4…) So far so good. I picked up a new piece of curly maple (with plenty to spare!) and after cutting it down to roughly the size I’d need for the project and after removing the knots which spoiled the ends of the board (but which saved me 10% at Woodcraft!) I proceeded to joint an edge and cut it down to rough size for the box. Now I need to decide how to d...
