Norms Router Cabinet #5: Drawers and Trays are done

10-05-2008 04:24 AM by sIKE | 6 comments »

Got out today and get the trays for the left hand side of the cabinet redone, I found a real cool piece of the ply for the drawer/tray fronts. I also got the three drawers for the bottom of the cabinet done. Tomorrow, I am gonna get out there and get the handles on the trays and get the drawers and drawer slides mounted. That should just about finish the cabinet base done, and I can start on the design and layout of the top. Much there I need to figure out.

10-05-2008 04:24 AM by lew | 4 comments »

This second part will concentrate on the layout of the rolling pin blank in preparation for cutting the slots. Create a blank that is 22” long and 2” square. Locate the center of the length (11”) and carry a line around the blank. The ellipses are 11” long and made of three pieces of 1/8” thick materialLayout a mark 5 ½” on either side of the center line and accurately carry the lines around the blank. To assist in laying out the diagonals, use a 3/8” thick spacer gauge, drawing lines...

Hi all My wife just got diagnosed with breast cancer. As i’m sure you can guess its very scary. We have attacked the situation head on. The doctors all say that its 95% curable because its small and we caught it early. The type is DCIS hers is very small and still contained within the milk ducts (as far as they can tell). Debbi and I have both decided that she shouldn’t have to deal with the stress of every year going back for a mammogram and wondering if its going to come back...

Recovery projects #5: Thinking about Christmas gifts

10-04-2008 09:56 PM by Betsy | 6 comments »

Well despite getting better by the day, I’m quite sure I won’t be up to doing a lot of Christmas gifts this year. That’s a bummer as it means I may have to buy gifts—- YIKES!!!!! I prefer to make all my gifts. Anyway, I’m trying to think of fast easy things I can make that will still be appreciated. Have any of you made these trivets? They look pretty easy and fast. I’m also thinking that a smaller versi...

Please help me… A month or two ago I was looking at someones woodworking website who had dozens of free standing cabinets (sort-of in the Krenov style). I don’t know which website that was. Do you know of any good websites that have lots of examples of these cabinets? I am looking for design ideas and inspiration. Please post links. Thanks! By the way, one of my favorites is on Lumberjocks…

Router Table for Incra LS 17 #2: drawer configuration

10-04-2008 07:26 AM by coloradoclimber | 4 comments »

Finally decided on a drawer configuration I can live with. Overlay fronts and full extension slides. The cabinet doors will be frame and panel, I just didnt get around to drawing the panels in yet. The drawers are just boxes in this drawing. I haven’t drawn in the joinery for the doors or drawers yet. At this stage I was mostly playing around with drawer sizes and spacing. The handles will probably change too, type and location. And the model version 2

Building a Classical Guitar #4: The sides

10-04-2008 06:17 AM by kem | 5 comments »

The first step for the sides is to thickness the bookmatched sides. In the kit, these sides are about 4 mm thick. They need to be brought down to about 1.8 mm thick. We first used something called a Safe-T planer which is a drill press attachment that can remove material very quickly. Just like a regular thickness planer it creates a big mess quickly. A drum sander was used to get down to final thickness. Next we jointed one edge of the sides. This edge will be the edge wher...

Building a Classical Guitar #3: The heel

10-04-2008 05:19 AM by kem | 3 comments »

The next step in the construction of the neck blank is attaching a heel block. In this guitar, we are using a Spanish heel to attach the neck to the body of the guitar. The Spanish heel uses two slots separated by about 11 mm in the sides of the heel block. The guitar sides will then be inserted in these slots. You can see the slot in the next photo, but this will become clearer when we attach the sides. In roughing out the shape of the heel of the guitar, the first cut (done wi...
