Cabinet Making #1: Looking At Actual Cabinet Construction

06-28-2010 05:30 AM by Tim Dorcas | 1 comment »

Last year I bought a half kitchen with the idea that I would add the cabinets to my workshop and give it an upgraded feel. (Right now everything is gray melamine which I got from an office that was being torn down.) When my wife saw that I was going to use the cabinets in my shop she immediately said they are too nice to get beat up in the shop. Too nice is a relative term. Let’s take a look. Here is an example of one of the cabinets. Here it is from different angle. Th...

Sewing Center #1: The Sewing Center in Progress

07-27-2009 01:23 AM by SouthpawCA | 6 comments »

I decided to try and take on bigger and more intricate projects. My wife wanted a sewing cabinet for all her sewing supplies, including the sewing machine, which are now kept in a bin in the garage. Each time she wanted to sew something, I had to get the bin in from the garage and she would have to dig through all the stuff and eventually she’d start her project. I decided to make it out of poplar for a couple of reasons. First – she wanted to try painting it with some decor...

She asked ” Could you cut it down somehow”? ” Some how” I said? “You know to make it smaller”. “Maybe” I said. I explained I could not make any Guarantees, but that I woul...

Handicap cabinet for a little girl #1: Linear actuators and the build

05-21-2009 04:22 AM by dryhter | 5 comments »

Earlier this year I had the opportunity to bid a cabinet for a handicap little girl. This was my solution to her problem. The problems as I saw them was how to get the step stabilized when in use and how to make the steps easy to use. I believe the actuators solved those problems nicely. Anybody wanting to incorporate linear actuators into a project just give me a shout and I would be happy to talk with you and tell all.
