Kitchen Cabinets in an OLD Home.

09-21-2014 10:15 AM by GotHardWood | 5 comments »

We bought a house that was built in the 1930’s from a Sears & Roebuck catalog. In keeping with the existing cabinets (which she decided we love), I had to build her some uppers to go above the stove. Of course.this meant remodeling the entire kitchen. The existing cabinets are pine everything. Chromed hinges and handles with glass knobs on the doors. After stripping out the old BX wiring and running more conventional electrics, and replacing all the 1/4 inch hardboard walls with 1/...

Garage Cabinets #5: Scrap use in basement shop

06-23-2014 08:15 PM by John Lowell | 1 comment »

Trying again, here are the three 24” boxes, with a few shelves – used up all the longer pieces, but may be able to put together a few bins with the remainder. The three small shelves are in the shop. Here is the wide view of the garage now, will build a third hanging for the remaining space, then on to lower cabs and a small garage bench. May take another 6 months, but am motivated to finish now…. cheers

Garage Cabinets #4: another 6 months - but hung a few more

06-23-2014 08:07 PM by John Lowell | 0 comments »

Waited until I got into a cabinet mood, and then a few weekends. Finished up four more large, with doors and one or two shelves each. If you read the prior post and noted the error, I placed a gap to store step ladders, but had so many folding chairs, installed a shelf between the cabinets and now the space is for short ladders, and chairs. After cutting all the doors, figured I had enough for some short hanging versions, about 11.5 in wide. With the scrap, built the two hanging v...

Pecky cypress goodness #1: Shop cabinet build

06-03-2014 03:33 AM by TheFridge | 2 comments »

I needed some shop storage and I wanted to use some pecky cypress I was given. So I figured drawer fronts of pecky cypress would be an awesome start. So I started by getting some free plywood after some old cabinets were demo’d on a job I was on. I would’ve preferred European style cabinets but didn’t think about it until after I milled and assembled the face frame. Here is the carcass from reclaimed wood. Cabinet set in place with face frame attached. Yes, I used a kre...

Tools #5: Radial Arm Saw base from filing cabinets.

03-19-2014 11:46 PM by PASs | 5 comments »

Yes something else involving filing cabinets.I have an old Craftsman RAS that I can’t even sell for $75 on Craigslist, so I keep it for cutting dados for card and phone holders. It has the standard spayed leg stand where I kept a couple of empty tool boxes, but not really anything else. I got two 2-drawer cabinets a few weeks ago for $5 each, about half what I’m willing to pay for good ones.As they were a matched pair I had the opportunity to join them together to make a base f...

Between the Stud Cabinets #1: Using That Wasted Shop Space

02-13-2014 03:20 PM by CoolToolShed | 2 comments »

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

Building a Murphy Bed

05-19-2013 12:27 AM by WoodJediNTraining | 1 comment »

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.

Norm Abram Router Table #1: Cabinet & Top

05-06-2013 04:59 PM by Litrenta | 6 comments »

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...
