So we are building a house. It has been a huge undertaking especially when my personality is such that I feel like I have to do everything. Luckily my wife has been there to help talk me down from some things and to give perspective. But I too have given perspective to her as well and one of the things that she decided we did not need to do was have me try to fit an old sink in a new house. Now don’t get me wrong I wanted to use it but after looking at what was going to be involved I of...
Sketch up rendition. .skp file also available for view. Center media cabinet. One of the two end satellite cabinets. Still need to cut up the crown molding. This cabinet is sitting on a short roll around platform to facilitate installing the drawers so I didn’t need to work on my knees.
Finally got a few coats of poly on, and mounted the cab in the workbench. Now need some more stuff to fill the drawers. Put some hardboard on to keep dust out of the drawers. Mixed material when you use what is already on hand.
Here is the first half case of the base for one of the cabinet/bookshelves… And a little while later, along came another… Seeing as how I haven’t totally screwed the entire project yet, I tried to get faceframes on the cases… Well, so far so good… now we need to make the top. That should tax my limited skill set!! (pictures when the top is done)
So after many years of promising the good woman I would build her some cabinet/bookshelves, I have finally begun that daunting task. I have never tackled a furniture project before, but having spent many years making custom presentation case for firearms, I thought I’d give it a try. Here is a Stetchup drawing of kinda what I’m trying to achieve. The drawing lacks the doors that will be on the bottom cabinets and any molding trim top and bottom. But hopefully it will give yo...
I recently finished my rolling storage cabinet to keep all of my kayaking and camping gear in. It turn out great with all the drawers I have in it. Have a look! <iframe src=”//www.youtube.com/embed/l9-Nwhvryn8” frameborder=”0” height=”360” width=”640”></iframe> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l9-Nwhvryn8
I trust everybody is full of mince pies and good single malts? Good. Progress on the cabinet design has been excellent, with only a few minor issues here and there. One specific one which I’ll outline is about the door design. First of all, a quick rendering of the more-or-less finished design. The eagle-eyed amongst you will note that I made the central door marginally too wide, causing the door to over-run into one of the dividers. Oops! That still hasn’t been fixed si...
Hi everyone – this post is more of a basic check-in than a large amount of progress. The build date on this project is still not set purely because I have other projects of higher priority. Specifically, I have a Gamble House dining room table and chairs to build. So anyway. This project will be pushed along through the design process whilst that one is playing out with perhaps a degree of crossover on when it will happen. Perhaps spring 2015? Based on my observations of the original...
Time for another update on the mini hand tool cabinet. These may start to come less frequently, since I am now involved in multiple Christmas Time projects as well (all of which I will post either in the Blog or at the very least in the Projects area early on in the new year). With all of the cabinet sides made, the next step I took was to make the panels for the back and for the door. My original plan was to find some 1/4” plywood for the panels, but I was enjoying using solid pine ...
another weekend, and working on the garage, again. Cut, shaped and edged the 3/4 in ply first layer, then cut and shaped the 3/4 top layer. Used small sheet, hence the three parts and mismatched backsplash. Also mounted the cab doors and drawer fronts. Need to do a better job on the drawer fronts, just have not figured out how. I tried dbl stick tape, but the drawer was slightly inside the cab so not enough pressure to stick. Oh well, slightly different spacing but it is in the garage. ...
