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 ...
Well, I kinda sold out. Day job stayed hectic longer and the wife just wanted the kitchen finished, so I went pre-made. :( The cost wasn’t so bad (building them myself), finish was already done (I don’t have a good spray booth yet), and it gave me time to do other work on mechanicals, flooring, etc. Ended up with a similar design, but 1/2” overlay with beaded outer edge doors, which gives the inset look from a distance. Went with CabinetAuthority.com, who are resell...
Hello everyone! I’ve created a series of dynamic components for sketchup that allow you to quickly create a set of cabinets. It allows for overlay, inset, inset with bead and many more options. I wanted to see what everyone thought, so I’ve made a quick video of these components in action.
Well it is finally starting: my job has relaxed a bit in workload, I have the tools, a design, and some of the raw materials. Time to build an entire kitchen! The home is an older, but not historic farmhouse colonial (~1970’s construction). Kitchen is about 15’ x 20’ and opens up to the family room, since I blew out the wall separating them. Style:We purchased a John Boos oval butcher block island as a centerpiece. The style will be a traditional colonial (simple, ...
