Easy Pine Bookcase

09-17-2014 02:06 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 2 comments »

I created a nice pine bookcase with dovetailed joints on top, 3 thru tenons, and custom made molding. This was done using handtools (except nail gun). Check out the video and comment. Remember to like and share it to support YouTube woodworkers.

Table bookcase #2: Finishing it up

09-22-2013 07:33 PM by siavosh | 0 comments »

I finally bought a joinery saw, the new Lee-Valley (LV) extra fine dozuki they had on special a couple weeks ago, and boy does it leave a cleaner cut than my 210mm ryoba. The kerf is so thin, sometimes the blade sticks, I might look into waxing it a bit if it persists. Out of all the hand tool skills, I want to improve my sawing the most. By far it seems that a good cut saves the most time and leaves a better result than any later clean up work with my chisels. Most of the joinery were...

Table bookcase #1: Getting the stock ready

09-15-2013 12:27 AM by siavosh | 2 comments »

Last week I found a pro woodworker/contractor advertising his offcuts on craigslist. I headed over and was in awe of what he called offcuts. I ended up with some great tips from him in addition to some slabs of Alaskan yellow cedar, sugar pine, and some pieces of walnut and cherry. I’m saving these for a toolbox I hope to make soon and a marking gauge. In the meantime, I knew I was running out of space to store this wood in a sightly manner back home. The little wood space I did have...

Craftsman built-ins #9: bookcases

03-01-2013 03:52 PM by mountainaxe | 1 comment »

Yesterday, I finished installation of the two matching bookcases that flank the fireplace insert I constructed in December. This was a difficult build as I knew I had to perfectly fit these two cases against a wall, two knee walls, and the fireplace insert…all while keeping everything parallel, level, and in-line while taking into consideration an old house with sloping floors and wavy walls. The construction of the basic book cases was fairly straight forward; they’re just bi...

Bookcase For Charity

06-25-2012 12:40 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 19 comments »

De’ja’ vu Last year I built a Shaker Bench for one of our favorite local charities. I was not going to make the deadline and Brian Havens flew out at a moment’s notice to help me build & deliver the bench just in time to be fashionably late rather than just late. (See blog entry here at LJ.) This year I started my project a couple of weeks early but things did not go as smoothly as I would have liked on the project nor my schedule. As a professional contractor my s...

Heritage Bookcase from Estate Wood #1: The raw material: not much to go with

02-05-2011 12:22 AM by Lee Barker | 3 comments »

One of my sons was talking to a friend who shared that his dad had died and left some hardwood in his shop in Central Oregon. Joel’s friend wondered if I’d be interested in the wood. We talked a little about that, but nothing came of it. At Christmas time, with sons around, the subject came up again and we ended up with a truckload of wood and an agreement to build a bookcase in return for the wood that was left. It’s a three way win—Joel brokers this nifty conne...

French Fry Friday #1: November 5, 2010

11-05-2010 03:31 PM by Chris Davis | 2 comments »

I started a theme for each day of the week. Fridays will be “French Fry Friday” and I’ll be talking about some sort of accessories that I build. Why “French Fry Friday”? I always here “would you like fries with that?” Fries are a side item and not part of the main meal. Same thing with the accessories or smaller items that I build. I blog about the big stuff but neglect the smaller stuff. So hear is a chance for often overlooked items to shine. This first one is a bookcase that was part of...

Daily Update #70: July 15, 2010

07-15-2010 03:42 PM by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

What’s happening in the shop for July 15, 2010. Working on the finish for a twin built in murphy bed for a local designer. This is a twin size that has not a lot of room for error. It will be folding out of a closet door with just a fraction of an inch of clearence. If the back wall is slightly out the wrong direction I may have a problem. The finish will be the same color as the walls. I’ll have it mixed up in a lacquer because that is what is easier for me. I’ll be...
