03-29-2013 10:26 AM by WoodJediNTraining | 9 comments »

In this video I show you how to make a simple yet elegant lift lid box. These little boxes can be made with with different woods to give them their own character, and due to the simplicity they can be made in batches.. They make a great gift to give someone. The boxes in the videos are made from Spalted Pecan, White Oak, & Mahogany. Each Box was finished with 2 coats of Danish Oil to bring out the natural beauty and color of the woods. Also in the video I talk about an upcoming project...

Cedar spectacular

09-06-2008 03:18 PM by cabinetmaster | 11 comments »

In response to Karson’s wood find on cedar lumber, this is an example of some cedar lumber I found about 6 years ago. A gentleman advertised that he had some cedar lumber for sale. I called him and got directions to his place. When I got there the lumber looked like this picture. The gentleman told me that he had cut the cedar 30 years ago and it had been stored in his attic. He decided to get it down and sell it. He took it out of his attic and put it on the back porch. But befo...

Shadow Casting Lamp

09-12-2012 04:59 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 7 comments »

This shadow casting lamp creates a cool effect to any room by casting a shadow on a wall of any scene you’d like to create in the lamps silhouette panels. For this project I used horses. The front of the lamp shows a horse in a natural calm state on all 4’s . And the frosted front panel of glass gives a nice subtle tone of light to illuminate the room. The back of the lamp has a silhouette of a horse raring on it’s hind legs. This is the side that casts a shadow on...

Hickory Chest Build #1: Hickory Chest Build

10-26-2011 09:11 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 15 comments »

Recently I started a Hickory Chest Project. This chest will feature raised panels as well as a cedar lining. I have been videoing the build. To share with viewers who might like to watch. I’m right at the point of getting ready for the finish. But before i do, I want to pose a question to my fellow Lumber Jock’s… Here is a picture of the Chest. It has some cool features. ( beetle bore holes, knots, etc.) Id like to showcase in the project. With that being said. Here is my qu...

3 Strings CBG (cigar box guitar) #2: More neck work

10-15-2012 11:40 PM by FreddyS | 2 comments »

Hi again, this time I’ll show you the extra work I did with the neck: You can see in the pic the small cigar box I got for the cbg, a Romeo y Julieta brand, cedar plywood, it is almost too small for the scale I choose (25”) but I will use it anyway, time will tell if I need to replace it. Here I did another “first timer”, a pattern jig to cut a nice shape into the headstock, used double sided tape to attach the pattern to the headstock and routed away… and...

Little Tansu Inspired Case #3: Drawers

02-21-2008 11:14 AM 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 ...

Cedar Tree journey #2: From Log to Lumber

01-17-2011 03:38 AM by WoodJediNTraining | 4 comments »

Well I got the call today, telling me my Cedar wood was ready for pick up …I couldn’t get to the truck fast enough!! I was looking forward to seeing what beautiful wood was hidden within the tree’s bark… Upon arrival, I noticed my trailer loaded and ready for me…Wow, I was surprised how much lumber was produced from the tree… around 300 bd ft not bad for free wood… The beautiful pinkish tint of the wood was a total eye catcher, and some of the grain patterns were amazing.. I had the...

01-31-2012 06:06 AM by WoodJediNTraining | 0 comments »

Hi everyone. I first off want to say I am sorry it took so long to get back here. Between Facebook, Google plus and Youtube and my website http://www.asimpledesignofocala.com . I never made it back here to update this series. Well the Hickory Chest build went very well. It ended up being an eight video series from start to finish. The Hickory Chest featured Raised Panel construction and the chest was lined with cedar. This project started when a client asked me to build a blanket chest for...

Gun Showcase/Coffee Table #1: Gun showcase/Coffee Table

11-23-2013 05:14 PM by vpbarnwood | 1 comment »

Here is an idea for gun owners that don’t have a gun case or space for a wall gun case. That being said it is not just for guns, you can display just anything that will fit in the case, such as coins, knick knacks, precious mementos. The dimensions are 5’ by 2’ by 18” when it will be finished. There will also be a drawer under the showcase in the center of the table. The wood used is reclaimed barn wood from my barn.

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

01-07-2008 12:48 AM 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. ...
