Shop Remodel #27: Oo La La Deux

12-28-2015 01:34 AM by bearkatwood | 6 comments »

Today I piddly farted around and put the catches into the door frames. They are friction catches and needed to be mortised in. All turned out well there. They hold the doors shut really well and look nice. I had to take a break from the carving as it was killing my shoulders, not used to that hard work :) So I decided to get French..No! Not like that you sicko!French cleats. I milled up some slats to inset into the door frames with a lip similar to the back of the cabinet...

Shop Remodel #24: Arrival of benchcraft hardware

12-23-2015 01:02 AM by bearkatwood | 4 comments »

Today was a good day! I started out the day by taking the advise many of you had and added a third leaf inlay to the left door face. I then spent the rest of the day carving the door frames where they met the panels to facilitate gluing them up. This way I wouldn’t have to worry about possibly nicking the panels when I carve the doors the rest of the way. I got my hardware in the mail for the workbench!! Very excited to get it especially when I am so close to being done with the cabi...

Shop Remodel #17: Blue tape to the rescue

12-11-2015 12:52 AM by bearkatwood | 4 comments »

So like I said yesterday, I goofed up and made my panel openings larger than my panel. I looked back through the stock I had left over and it was too thin to use so I needed to rely on off-cuts to patch my mistakes. Blue tape to the rescue. I cut out the over-sized shapes that would go into the door panel and used scraps to fill in the empty spots. I traced the outline of the openings onto the curly maple panel and then used calipers to oversize it and sribe a ne...

Shop Remodel #14: Tedium in wood

12-07-2015 11:39 PM by bearkatwood | 5 comments »

Hi everyone, Hope all is well in woodworkingland. Today was a very slow one, not to mention interrupted at every turn, but I did still manage to get something done. I always laugh about how quickly a case or cabinet goes together and how easy they seem after making chairs and I ask myself “Why don’t I just make cabinets?” Well I am in the thick of making cabinets and hit a brick wall of sorts with the tills that will hold the tools in place. I figured out my cleat system we...

Shop Remodel #13: Oo La La!

12-07-2015 12:43 AM by bearkatwood | 8 comments »

la grande construction, Oo La La!Today was very French. French cleat that is. I set the cabinet to the wall using french cleats and made a set for the inside of the cabinet. There will probably be some that hang down from the shelf below, but the cleats should take care of most tools for the back wall. A series of custom hangars will be made to facilitate hanging tools. This way as things change I can rearrange the cabinet. I experimented by making a flat plate to hang someth...

Shop Remodel #12: Glue hits the fan

12-05-2015 12:44 AM by bearkatwood | 4 comments »

Another episode in the saga that is the Great Big Build. Today the glue hit the fan! The tool cabinet was glued up today and I only cussed once, not bad for a glue up from hell. Sorry, a really crazy glue up ;) The rest of the day was spent milling up wood for the door panels and sides. I have been stockpiling wood for over two years for this build. Every time I recieved a comission I would get extra wood and set it aside. The piece I had for the maple p...

Shop Remodel #11: Mambo #5

12-04-2015 12:02 AM by bearkatwood | 10 comments »

The Big BuildToday was one of those days where you go two steps forward one and a half steps back, step to the side and scratch your chin and well, yeah it was like that. I managed to get all the compartmental-ism done on the cabinet and it is ready to glue together. This morning I cut up a piece of ply to roughly the size the door will be and loaded them up with the tools I would like there to see what wouldn’t fit. What was left over would have to go somewhere else. I took ...

Shop Remodel #10: I got your back!

12-03-2015 01:06 AM by bearkatwood | 4 comments »

Hi everyone, hope all is well. I took a picture of the drawer in the saw till as I forgot to yesterday. When we last left our caped crusader he had just assembled a square to become a tool cabinet. Well today I made a panel to become the back. I thought about doing ship lap for the back, but my board wasn’t wide enough. It was all I could do to resaw the 12 1/4” wide curly maple board into three plates 1/4” thick. So I came up with a split panel frame inste...

Router Table #1: Cabinet and surface

10-20-2015 06:10 PM by BobFrankly | 1 comment »

It doesn’t take very many attempts at routing smaller pieces of wood to see the benefit of a router table. Midway through my Walnut Lamp project, I got some ideas floating through my head that couldn’t happen without the router table. So my once router table cabinet, now wood scrap holder, is once again a router table cabinet. I started with a rectangle 1×2 base joined by glue and pocket screws, some casters, and a plywood shell: I was mostly using leftover ply from other ...

Dart Board Cabinet Build #3: Building the Cabinet Doors

10-06-2015 03:16 PM by Mike | 0 comments »

Hi All! Thank you again for clicking the link to take a look at what I have been doing with the Dart Board Cabinet Project. This last week was absolutely nuts and I wasn’t able to get everything done that I wanted to with the project. I was able to get the doors milled, glued, assembled, and finished up. Please leave a comment on what you think about the project so far. Recommendations on how I can make the videos better are always welcome. Enjoy! View on YouTube
