So here are the “Between the Stud” cabinets finished, minus knobs. These gave me some nice storage up and out of the way! With one more interior wall I may just make some more there too! Watch the video to see whats inside! http://youtu.be/-80PypDYmZw
Here is the first quick video I did of using space “Between the Studs” in my small shop to make storage space and not take up a lot of the shop footprint! If you have a small shop and storage is a problem, this may be a good solution for you! I made these out of shorts and leftovers from previous projects! http://youtu.be/OaT9VcUrHOI
I thought I’d share some pictures of some of my older projects. All made in the last 15 years. Scroll Saw Projects: Intarsia roses on wall sconces: I cut jigsaw puzzles for a while. This was one of the larger ones – 1,305 pieces, 24 X 36> A postage stamp cut into 16 pieces: I’ve done some lathe turnings: More of my pens may be seen at http://www.leecoga.com Kitchen update included new doors and drawer fronts with homemade beadboar...
This week’s Project is a horizontal Murphy Bed. The bed I built is a twin size bed using the Create-A-Bed Hardware kit from Rockler Woodworking and Supply. The finished look of the bed can be trimmed and finished to match your homes decor, really the limit on the final look is only limited by your imagination. These videos just tell you about the use of the hardware kit and the general construction of the project. I hope you enjoy it.
I’ve been wanting to build a new router table for a while now ever since I got rid of my old one. I’ve always like the Norm Abram style router table, I just needed some time to build one. Since the weather is getting nicer and it’s not below freezing up here anymore, I finally got a chance to start this. I used the plans that were available at: http://www.crestonwood.com/router.php They were a good set of plans to start with and best of all they were free! I’ve comp...
I have to apologize again. This hasn’t been much of a blog. This blog entry is the last because, well, I’m done. Yeah, sorry. I know there’s not much content. I just got to busy. Anyway, here’s some pics. Enjoy.
I really started on our kitchen cabinet project today. Our kitchen is really small, and has very limited cabinet space. There’s an island between the kitchen and dining area that we want to put cabinets over to increase our storage space—there’s no pantry or suitable cupboard for food storage except above and to the left of the stove. We figure if we can put in a couple more cabinets, we can move where we store our dishes and free up space for food and other container s...
Finally got back to my cabinets after the drawer slides came in. So easy to install with the kreg drawer slide jig. Need to get some 1/2” Ply tomorrow so I can build the boxes at some point. Pictures then. Drawer slides were from Woodworker's Hardware (online). Shipped fast and reasonable price.
If you’ve ever struggled with setting inset doors, I have an easy method for you.
I’m frequently asked, “What does it actually cost to make a pen?” (Mostly at arts and craft shows I am attending or participating in.) (I keep a copy at all art shows now) Here’s the list of items that I use to make a pen. The good news is that after the first pen you make they become much less expensive. Some of these items can be eliminated or something else can be substituted for what is listed. If you already have a table saw, or band saw, a drill press or other items the initial ...
