Cabinet Latches

02-20-2010 11:31 PM by UpstateNY | 6 comments »

Hello all, I just joined this site but I have been coming on here for a few weeks and reading blogs. Love the fact that there are people out there with a lot of great advice and knowledge in wood working that have come together to discuss. Have learned a lot already. I am making kitchen cabinets for my house. They are coming along great with the small amount of time I have. I have found all the hardware I need except for cabinet latches. I am looking for antique style cabinet latches...

Flammable liquid storage

02-20-2010 08:42 PM by MTBrian | 5 comments »

I am always concerned about a fire in my shop, as the shop is in the house. I really cannot afford the 500 dollars for a steel cabinet. I have an old refrigerator that has the compressor removed from it. I was considering using this to store my paint, stain and thinners. There is no electricity to this unit, so im not worried about a spark, but is there a danger of explosion? Everything that will be stored in this container will be properly sealed, and the temperature in the shop ranges ...

Simplicity Wooden Clock #1: The Plan

02-20-2010 08:39 PM by CaptainSkully | 5 comments »

Since I can’t afford a bunch of quarter sawn white oak to finish the dining table right now, I thought I’d look for a project that requires less materials. Having just read “Longitude” by Dava Sobel, I’ve been fascinated by wooden clocks. Being a Mechanical Engineer, I also have an affinity for anything with gears. I found woodgears.ca few years ago and have been fascinated by the stuff he makes. I’ve also looked into building some kind of kinetic sculp...

Building a cedar strip canoe #2: My $12 steamtube

02-20-2010 07:57 PM by roaddog | 5 comments »

Here is my high tech steambox setup. The cedar strips for the canoe are easily bent over the forms but the laminations for the stems at each end of the boat need to be steamed to be bent around the stem molds. I did a little test run last night to make sure my PVC pipe wouldn’t melt on me when I actually steam the wood. I scored the teapot at a thrift store for $6 and the PVC pipe was $6 at the local lumber store. I already had the burner and a few cans of butane in the garage. For ...

Cutting Board, Wood Whisperer Style #1: Cutting and gluing

02-20-2010 09:12 AM by Jason Tetterton | 1 comment »

I hear it’s a right of passage around here to do a wood-whisperer type cutting board :) Well, since Marc inspired my new wood working hobby, I thought I would try one of his projects out. I decided to use the same famous pattern with Hard Maple and Purple Heart, I ordered the “cutting board” package from Bell Forest http://www.bellforestproducts.com/cutting-board-package. I received 3 pieces of wood, 2 hard maple and 1 Purple Heart. The lumber was already joint...

Alaska Jim's Comments of the Day #16: Some work on the sled, and Sharp Objects......ouch...........

02-20-2010 05:19 AM by Jim Bertelson | 12 comments »

Recovering from a week, and last weekend, of hard work. Finally got out to the shop today. Mid afternoon. The job stress and my age makes for many days of recovery…......... Pared down the width of my sled from 48 to 44 inches..........more about the reason for that in later entries. Then I put the angles on the little fence......I never know whether to call it the front or the back fence…......furthest from the operator. Well, goofing around with setting the blade angle on ...
