Sketchup Models of Shop Furniture for a Small Shop #1: Mobile Shelves, Expandable Assembly Table and Materials Cart

1814 days ago by Jack Barnhill | 10 comments »

I have a small shop, about 200SF. It’s not as small as it once was, about 90SF, and it’s not as big as what I hope to have some day, about 600SF. To keep from climbing over things and make it easier to move things around to accomdate the operation of the moment, I thought I would adopt the “everything on wheels” strategy and double up what tools I could in single cabinets. So, to make sure that I had the right designs and that everything would fit in the shop and ...

Work(shop) in Progress #6: New Table Saw : Unpacking and Assembly of Ridgid R4511

1859 days ago by PurpLev | 50 comments »

So after much research and debates, I have finally charged the card, and 2 days later the delivery arrived with the new saw in the box (I opted to have it delivered from the store as opposed to pick it up myself – at 450lbs, I simply wouldn’t be able to unload it myself) Delivery from HD was swift and smooth, positive and friendly guy stop at my place saturday morning, and helped me position the box in my garage – I couldn’t be happier (took 5 minutes, 4.5 of those was...

Mission Style Bed #4: Knockdown Fasteners, Assembly, Transport

716 days ago by Fraser Gandy | 1 comment »

So, this past while I’ve been busy with finishing up school, packing to get ready to move, and starting my work term/summer job at Added Touch Stairs and Floors. The final step and the work I did on the last day at school, was milling the lumber for the side rails, and mounting the hardware. My teachers were exclaiming “Are we ever gonna get to see this thing put together! C’mon c’mon!”. Sure enough about an hour later I was getting help putting it together, my f...

Wine Cork Display Tutorials #3: Assembly

1239 days ago by FaTToaD | 1 comment »

In this tutorial, I’ll show how I glue and assembly my wine cork displays. If you’re interested in a version with larger pictures, follow the link below: Bigger Picture Version Now that I’ve got my glass, I can begin the glue-up. However, I suggest sanding the inside first, one less thing to deal with later. I begin by laying my pieces down on my table with the inside facing down and the front facing away from me. I use a piece of MDF to make sure the front edges...

Mission Style Bed #3: Head and Footboard Assembly

742 days ago by Fraser Gandy | 2 comments »

Alright, did a lot of work the past while, even though it seems like I haven’t. I’ve been busy working!I started with the footboard, I first lined all the slats up in between the rails. This was probably one of the most frustrating parts of this whole project. Once I got them all pretty well in there, I attached the rails to the legs and that sorted out the slats for the most part. Once I did that, I noticed that my mortises and slats and stuff didn’t quite look as nice a...

Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #9: Carcase Glue-up!

724 days ago by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 22 comments »

Oh, yeah, it’s time to stop cutting bait and ‘fish’ for a next-level assembly with this project. In other words, this carcase has been apart and together a bunch of times for marking, cutting, and fitting rabbets and dados. All of those shelves and partitions are at the ready; there’s nothing more do do with the carcase apart that can’t just as well be done while it’s together. In the meantime, I have T&G back-cabinet material as well as face framing th...

Hand tool tips and tricks #8: Waste Removal on a Through Mortise.

413 days ago by RGtools | 14 comments »

This one is almost stupid, but it happens to still be helpful. On a through mortise you can center your work on a dog hole and some of the random chips will fall through it rather than get jammed into the bottom, where you will have to extricate them later. And Now…a bonus tip!!! When test fitting a mortise and tenon joint take care not to snag anything important… You have been warned and so have I. Cheers, Ryan

Rockin' Ride #5: Finishing and final assembly

1925 days ago by kshipp | 2 comments »

Refers to project posted here. The dry fit passed inspection from my quality inspector so it was time to move on to finishing. I disassembled it to three major components and put on Minwax Dark Walnut Stain. Of course I did this on my finishing/pool table. You can see the unstained head sitting on the table also. I installed the handle in the head with glue and two finish nails through the edge to hold it steady. I am using Waterlox Original Medium as a sealer and it’...

Murphy Bed #16: Final Assembly and Installation

1814 days ago by Gene47 | 3 comments »

After 3 days of raining I finally was able to bring the main bed assembly up to the house to get ready for the final assembly and installation. The first thing I did was place the main assembly face down on the floor and set the outer case verticals on each side. After inseting the pivot pins of each vertical into the mating piece on the bed frame I used the E-clips to lock them in place. I then placed the head board in position and since I did not have one clamp that would span the ent...
