Entry Closet Project #8: The End is Here!

01-09-2008 04:58 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 31 comments »

Finished! Well it’s been a long journey and it did not end without one extra push. I finished installing the copper handles Monday by 11:30. There was a couple of scratches but I was certain I could buff them out. This is a skill that goes with the territory. I worked on the finish for the next six hours and I could not get the finish to blend. How to Remove a Scratch- After exhausting all other options this is what I resorted to today: Yes you are seeing it correctly...

Entry Closet Project #7: One Step Closer!

01-06-2008 03:16 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 26 comments »

Another Milestone I am pretty excited to share with you guys today’s progress. I got all of the handle pieces finished! Next I have some touch up on the doors and the final install. I am sure I will have a full day of technical sweating. I had to brush the pieces again on the wire wheel to brighten the finish. I then hung them from the ceiling and wiped them down thoroughly with acetone. This strips any oil from the surface. I sprayed them with an acrylic resin lacquer by Sh...

Craftsman Bungalow Restoration #20: Madness and The Deck

04-11-2009 05:34 PM by gizmodyne | 22 comments »

Home Tour MadnessIn two weeks (April 26) our house is going to be featured on the neighborhood home tour. Over 1000 people will be walking through…. gulp. I have a to-do list longer than my arm. I’ll give you more details on that later. Item 50: Build DeckPreviously we had a crummy set of dilapidated stairs leading to our back door. After some poorly planned landscaping we ended up with a dirt circle. Seen behind me in this picture. On the upside it was a good place ...

Some Pictures to Satisfy Those Who Wanted Them...

10-06-2007 03:42 AM by RobH | 10 comments »

I was back over at the house tonight to pick up a couple of things. I took some pictures of the shelves. They still have dust on them (I did not bother with cleaning them since the hardwood floors have not been sanded yet. These are not the final pictures. I will go take some more once the floors are done and shelves are cleaned off. Those I will put in here as a project. Enjoy these.

Built-In Bed #1: Pleasing the Customer

11-07-2010 11:57 PM by Scott R. Turner | 6 comments »

I always enjoy reading project blogs here on LJ, so I’ve decided to attempt one myself. Hopefully some folks will find it enjoyable! I’ve built a few beds over the past years, the most recent being this one that my son uses: It’s solid maple and has been beat up a little over the years and acquired glow-in-the-dark stars, all of which adds to its character, and I don’t mind in the least. I like that the bed has been host to both my children and that they...

Kitchen Built-in Booth

04-19-2012 10:28 PM by Gabe C. | 5 comments »

So at first I was only going to post this as a completed project, but I felt that in order to keep from saturating that post with too many photos, I would also post this as a blog. Plus it might inspire me to add a bit of dialogue about the process. This is the completed project. This is the space that I started with. So I have a pretty small house with a fairly small kitchen, in which we have my girlfriend’s table and four chairs. The problem we were running into is that when ...

Built-in bookcases and mantel for fireplace surround in a Tudor Revival

01-28-2010 04:46 AM by Jonathan | 4 comments »

(Please note: I originally posted this earlier today as a forum topic, but then decided to put it in as a blog entry in order to keep all of my entries together. I have also added more information to this posting here.) A year ago Christmas, Santa promised my wife that he’d build built-in bookcases with doors, as well as an adjoining mantel. Well, Santa got busy over the course of that year landscaping most of the yard by laying brick pavers, constructing a couple of raised brick planter b...

Built-In Bed #6: Don't Mock Me!

11-20-2010 04:52 AM by Scott R. Turner | 4 comments »

(The Story So Far: Our Hero is constructing a built-in bed for his daughter, with inadequate tools and woodworking experience, and so far has made only a small number of terrible errors, which fortunately he can blame on others.) Just a short note today, because I haven’t had time to make significant progress these last two days. I did get out and trim the two panels that make up one side of the built-in to the same width and cut the top and bottom pieces, as well as the one perman...

Craftsman built-ins #12: Bathroom Chest of Drawers

06-04-2014 07:44 PM by mountainaxe | 3 comments »

Continuing the Craftsman theme in our home, I’ve moved to the master bath. My wife has always complained about needing more storage space. I found inspiration for “his and hers” built-in chest of drawers in the plan-book by Robert W. Lang, Shop Drawing for Craftsman Interiors, Cabinet Moldings & Built-Ins for Every Room in the Home. Plans were straight forward. Because the chests will be so close to the sink and submitted to high doses of humidity/water, I chose to...

First Commission #1: Entertainment Center

01-22-2011 12:04 AM by jmichaeldesign | 3 comments »

So life forced a break from woodworking. I finished college a few years ago at Kendall College of Art and Design with a degree in Furniture Design and Woodworking. After that I moved across the country and a worked for a couple different non-profits for a couple years during which time I also met and married my wife. We started looking for a new apartment for a few reasons, one of which was to find one with a garage that I could work in. I had worked in a cabinet/custom furnitu...
