Desk build #1: Small Oak Nurses Desk

08-27-2009 05:11 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 1 comment »

My niece will graduate as a nurse in the near future. She has moved into a new house and asked me for a small desk for her new flat panel iMac. I decided to make an oak desk that would be loosely based on the mission style but with side panels that would reflect her future as an RN. My goal is a small desk 48” x 29” with keyboard drawer and a small drawer. I’ll be trying my first hand made dovetails on scrap and then on to my first dovetailed drawer I put this out here, ...

I had hoped to keep this under wraps for a few more days while I get my act together but oh well, lets rock and roll.Man is this stuff beautiful. I would like to ask you all to be patient with me.

New Toy

Got this off someone on Craigslist for $90: I know it’s not the best piece of equipment out there, but for $90 on a limited budget I couldn’t pass it up. I’ve read it snipes, but I hope to minimize that a bit by getting some decent rollers for infeed/outfeed.

Flag cases

Well the wood has been planed down and ripped to width. I am going to start cutting to length tomorow. I still need to buy the glass and plywood back. I need to work out the pocket hole joinery yet.

The kitchen and dining area is 14 ft wide x 24.6 ft long. My cabinets are made of plywood and my face frames and doors are made out of hickory. I have never worked on a set of kitchen cabinets before, so I am pretty much learning this on my own. I have a friend on here that gives me advice whe...

Kitchen Furniture #1: Kitchen Table

08-26-2009 08:32 PM by Ackdaddy | 5 comments »

My wife and I bought a foreclosure about a year ago and are about 75% done with the plans that we set forth in the beginning. The kitchen is completely redone, along with the living room and our expectant baby’s nursery. The bathrooms are in process along with our bedroom. I’ve sort of taken a break from the home improvement aspect and gotten into a lot more woodworking. I find my hands to be a lot more steady than ever, and my accuracy much improved. So now I am making a k...

08-26-2009 06:52 PM by woodsmithshop | 1 comment »

has anyone used a DIGIMAG DIGITAL REMOTE READOUT on a router lift? how about the WIXEY digital readout for router lifts?EAGLE AMERICA has the DIGIMAG for sale for $50, and the WIXEY for $70, I was just wondering if one may be better than the other, if $20 difference was worth it either way.I think Amazon has them for the same price.thanks for any info anyone may have to offer.
