Cherry Bookshelf

View on YouTube Click to watch video on YouTube A friend of mine saw a bookcase in a woodworking magazine. She knows all about my workbench and my woodworking YouTube videos so she knew that this would be an easy project for me. So, she asked me to make one for her grandchildren. Gluing the cleats to the top Her grandchildren, Billy and Alex live in another state with their mother and my friend was going to deliver the bookcase to them. Actually, that was my biggest challenge on ...

Bookcase No. 2 - Part 4

03-10-2016 10:53 PM by Jordash | 2 comments »

The bookcase is finished and so are the videos! I’m happy to say that the bookcase suits the room well and it even fits the gap it’s supposed to go in (I admit to being somewhat nervous when I turned up to deliver it). View on YouTube If anyone wants an easy link, I’ve set up a playlist with all 4 parts here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLbd5qQJhXiljBIkSsvn0O6T012UXGyOdS

Bookshelves /storage #1: Now that I've built it, how do I move it?

03-07-2016 01:49 PM by curliejones | 3 comments »

Ever find yourself in this situation? I believe I may have stopped “progress” on these bookshelves just in time and I wanted to share a couple ideas for attaching handles so it could be moved handily and without danger to the project or surroundings. After a recent plumbing leak (washer supply hose corroded) the “study” suffered the damage through the shared wall with the laundry. The baseboard was removed, a small amount of sheetrock cut away, framing a...

My Woodworking Projects #5: Bookcase No. 2 - Part 3

03-03-2016 08:22 PM by Jordash | 0 comments »

So another week and yet more progress. This bookcase has definitely gone together better than the 1st one. I learnt from my mistakes and took extra care to ensure that the shelves were all the same length and were definitely square when glued in place. This means that the sides are nice and straight, whereas on the first bookcase one side had a significant bow in it, that needed hiding with the face frame and careful placement in the room it went into. Anyway, here is the film of the 3rd p...

My Woodworking Projects #2: My first plywood carcass project - a painted bookcase

02-03-2016 10:03 PM by Jordash | 2 comments »

So just after Christmas I decided to have a go at a carcass type project. I got carried away and bought a Makita track saw to help me break down sheet goods. So I went to my local diy shop (Wickes) and bought some of their ‘hardwood ply’, in reality its pretty rubbish stuff, but the timber yards were shut between Christmas and New Year, not to mention the fact that I wanted to play with my new toy. All in all this was a really quick project, I got all the joinery done in a few day...

Twin Tower Bookcases

06-01-2015 02:54 PM by HappyHowie | 3 comments »

I gave my original Tower Bookcases made from maple to my son Scott. These bookcases were offered as free woodworking plans from Woodsmith.com. I liked the plan because these bookcases take very little floor space. I can place them on each side of the master headboard. We like to read in bed. These bookcases allow us to store our current readings nearby. I am now replacing those bookcases that we kept on each side of our master bed. This one is being made with cherry and I have made it...

Another 52 Weeks #10: Games, Show, Furniture, Gramps

03-09-2015 01:02 AM by clieb91 | 0 comments »

So the good news is I got all the games, wine tilts and most of the turning done for the show that we had yesterday. I was also able to complete the 9th piece in my Dimensional Office Furniture set and get it put into place. I did also post this as a project but let me just take a minute to expand upon the story a little more. the bookshelf matches the other two and was built specifically to hold the tool chest you see sitting on top of it. I have talked about my grandfather her...
