UNPOSTED PROJECTS -- NOW POSTED #3: Multiple drawers from scraps

10-14-2010 05:48 AM by BertFlores58 | 4 comments »

CREATIVITY, INOVATION, RESOURCEFULNESS, These are the words of mouth from those who saw my multiple drawer. I made this after collecting toner drum catridges from a copier. I have seen the possibility of recycling it to a drawer because of the linearity of the protruding guide slide. This is definitely a difficult situation of making a groove precisely cut in between division panels. I used 3/4 plywood which is also scrap pieces. Another challenge was to utilize the top and the bottom ...

I don’t think there ARE many … universal truths. But … in woodworking … I’m absolutely convinced that there is AT LEAST one: YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MANY CLAMPS ;-) It’s glue-up day, folks…....

#1 Keepsake Chest

10-14-2010 12:34 AM by Howie | 2 comments »

A few weeks ago I posted pictures of a keepsake trunk I built and several people wanted to know how I made the top and bent the wood for the straps. This is the start of another trunk for my wife.I give credit to American Woodworker Mag and Garrett Glaser for the design and plans. I did not follow them exactly but I feel the results are the same. I used a different box joint (Incra) and I bent the wood different than the article explained. I’ll follow that part with pictures later. ...

Asian Cabinet #2: Where there's a Jig, There's a Way

10-13-2010 09:03 PM by Brian Havens | 4 comments »

The first task I decided to tackle is the cabinet legs. If I cannot get the legs right, all bets are off. They look deceivingly simple in the design picture, but having the cabinet float above the legs, as well as my attempt to make the legs from 8/4 stock complicates things a bit. Nothing that a jig cannot solve, right?

Asian Cabinet #1: The Design

10-13-2010 08:49 PM by Brian Havens | 1 comment »

In response to Hank Gilpin’s advice on my Jewelry Armoire in the October 2010 issue of Fine Woodworking, I decided to, instead of fixing the Jewelry Armoire, to design a new cabinet that implements Hank’s suggestions. This “Asian Cabinet”, as I am tentatively calling it, is smaller and more slender than the Jewelry Armoire. I also do not plan on keeping this piece, but instead selling it when I am finished, so if there are any potential buyers out there…. I ...
