Small workbench based on shipbuilt's Short Block V8 (Workbench Challange) #3: Leg stretchers, assembly bolts and bottom shelf.

03-21-2015 05:15 PM by brianb6603 | 4 comments »

This part was very straight forward, The stretchers were assembled from 3 strips of 3/4” BB glued together with Biscuits to help keep everything aligned. The center strip is 1/2” longer to make a tendon. Next I made a router template to make the mortises in the legs. At that point it was just a matter of laying them out and cutting them. While I had the legs out I needed to make clearance slots for the 2 dog holes on each side of the left side leg. ...

Small workbench based on shipbuilt's Short Block V8 (Workbench Challange) #2: The Tops

03-16-2015 12:55 AM by brianb6603 | 3 comments »

Well, the tops have taken longer than I anticipated. But it has turned out nice. The original Short Block V8 designed with a Torsten box top but I wanted a solid top. After lots of consideration I decided that I wanted the top to be Baltic Birch laminated on edge for the top. This would be consistent with the leg construction and would make for a very solid top. However this presented an issue as Baltic Birch is not cheap (best price here in Oregon, USA is $55.00 for a 5×5’ sheet...

In this video, I make the center divider for the drawers in the base. I also add some kickers for the drawers. After sanding, I glue it up taking special care to line up the inlay on the rails with the legs. As always, I welcome your questions and comments!

A non-plywood 4 drawer filing cabinet #2: A half scale prototype

01-15-2015 08:25 AM by GCM | 0 comments »

This is my half size prototype made entirely out of pallet wood (besides hardware).Finish is home made chalk paint with a wax finish (shabby chic) – the finish doesn’t photo very well but I am very happy with it, it came out the best I have been able to achieve so far. This size is perfect for DVDs etc. (I did a more thorough write up but the text disappear after I uploaded the pictures for some reason).

Work Shop Organization #1: Power Tool Storage

01-01-2015 02:15 PM by Nate66 | 1 comment »

In trying to keep my workshop organized and clutter free so I can work at my bench without having to search for tools, I found a definite need for somewhere to keep my power tools besides in their original boxes. Their original boxes keeps them organized, however, it makes them less accessible and frankly a pain in the rear to unpack and repack the tool each time it is used. Also the original boxes take up a lot of storage space when you have a confined space to work in to start with. ...

Lessons Learned

11-22-2014 02:30 AM by Alan | 5 comments »

So for the past week, I have been working with another woodworker on some raised-panel cabinet doors my mom contracted him to build. I have learned many things, albeit not the things I expected to learn. First, when you’re building fine furniture, you need to pay attention to grain from the very beginning, right from when you start your layout and marking out. Thinking about what grain is going to go where from the outset will save headaches later, and also make more attractive pie...

I started with the plane till so I could get a general idea of the size of the cabinet.Then using No3 (third grade cherry) boards planed down to 820 thou I edge joined using biscuits narrow boards to get up to over 9 1/2” wide, after joining the boards I planed the ...
