Little Tansu Inspired Case #2: Keyed Miters and Drawer Parts

2250 days ago by Dorje | 16 comments »

I had a little bit of time this afternoon to work on the little case… I keyed the miters with walnut: Glued up the dividers: and, cut out the all the drawer parts: I’ve got drawer bottom stock prepared from the first day (in the background of the photo above), so my next step will be to cut the joinery for the drawers. And, since this is supposed to be a quick and dirty project, I’m going to rout the drawers with a drawer lock bit. Like this:

Tool Cabinet #2: Respect to all cabinet builders...

2292 days ago by Sgt_Lobo | 19 comments »

For all of you cabinet builders on this site, my hat is off to you! I never fully realized the work that is involved in making a cabinet and how even the smallest mistakes can compound so very quickly… Right before Christmas I posted this blog asking for input on plans for a tool cabinet. Well, I took all the advice I received and have been furiously building over the holidays. Here is where I stand—I have completed the actual “cabinet” portion of the project. ...

Little Tansu Inspired Case #3: Drawers

2247 days ago by Dorje | 18 comments »

I had some time in the evening to continue on my little case… I was able to get the drawer lock joints cut on the four little drawers. Fortunately, I set this up the other day. Without instructions, it took me a little longer than it probably should have. Once you dial in the height for a good fit, it’s all in the fence adjustment. Pretty decent little machine joint, that’ll be a lot faster to perform the next time: Next up, I cut the grooves for the bottoms (on the ...

I have had a very busy few weeks. lots of travel and time away , so not much time in the shop, and little success when I was there. So, when I did get home two days ago, I was happy to have a message regarding some wood I have been searching for.I designed a jewelery cabinet for my wife, which I will eventually build, that I really wanted to use birds eye yellow cedar on the interior. So, after one more long drive, and sorting through a back country barn, I arrived home with my long sought af...

Alabama Tornado Logs

1053 days ago by Built2Last | 3 comments »

A month or so before the tornado’s hit Alabama on April 27th I had built a log loader that I could put in my 20’ utility trailer. I never dreamed it would get so much use. After the storms hit I posted an ad on Craig’s List offering to remove logs from yards for no charge. It’s been a month now and it will take another month or so just finish the two places I’m working on now. The picture of the loaded trailer is of about 500 board feet of white oak ...
