My customer really liked the documenting of my last project on this site so I’m at it again. This is a really big ( for me) cabinet for dvds. It’s dimensions are 82 high and 50 wide. Glass doors on top and solid doors on bottom. Sliding dovetails while I love the look and the strength are a pain in the ass. Just my opinion. Enjoy.the model drawing
I am making a raised panel bench seat that is enclosed for the bedroom. As always, storage is at a premium at our place. I’m making this bench to go along a long wall will let us sit to put on our socks and still have a storage space. In my mind it will look like this. It’s just a sketch and that’s how I usually start. The length will be 54 inches and the height 20 inches. Since it’s actually a sitting bench it will be quite squat as a chest would be much taller.. ...
Had a bit more time this morning and late afternoon. I finished up building the legs then got them attached. Lot’s of cleanup work is required but the rest of my time will be spent making it just so. I decided to make the inside legs into triangles. It’s a lot less work, and as I understand it, sturdier. I go a little cleanup done of the top. I’m chomping at the bit to do some more work. Id be surprised if I could get her ready for finish in ano...
For my Introduction to Woodworking class, we have a “final project” that we choose ourselves. Given that I’m learning to use hand tools, I’ve decided to make a handplane cabinet. In my latest blog entry, I show how I use Google (now Trimble) SketchUp to create the design and the use of layers and scenes to showcase the various parts of the design without duplicating any portion. This was based on information that I learned from Bob Lang in his article from Popular Woodworking. T...
Well folks, 160 dowel holes later, I’m ready to call it quits. I don’t mind hard work, but repetition drives me crazy! Here is a snapshot of some of those dowel holes…Now, notice the markings on the end grain. This is important to me so that I don’t keep having to second guess myself when I am putting things together. I have those pieces marked ‘L’ or ‘R’ for left or right and numbered from top to bottom. I mark all the pieces on the right ...
I started a whole house remodel several months ago. I figured that homerefurbers, LJ’s sister blog site would be the appropriate place to do a blog. Unfortunately the site’s been taken hostage by mass spamming and no one can seem to keep up with cleaning it out. My start to this is Here at homerefurbers. It’s the beginning of 6 posts there. I’ve decided to continue the blog here. Here is the latest post, After the living room, bedroom, and bathroom. I’ve start...
I had another busy day yesterday. I had to take my kitty Coco to the vet yesterday to get a little bump on her paw checked out. Fortunately, it turned out to be nothing and she is fine. I was kind of worried that she would have to go through surgery or something like that to get it removed, but the vet said it wasn't a concern. I am sure Coco was happy as well, but she still wasn't thrilled with the ride to the vet and back (about 45 minutes each way). She was just thrilled to b...
I’m in the process of designing and building a cherry nightstand to match our bedroom suite. I’m going to try and preserve the style of the furniture while remaining within my skill level. I’m actually pretty far into the build now and since I’ve taken some pictures along the way I thought I would blog the process. I’ll try to post an entry for each step as time permits. The design of the nightstand took into account the style of our current bedroom suite i...
My high school age great nephew is staying with us for a week to learn some woodworking skills. I gave hime a list of possible projects and we ended up with this ditty box:We bought the plans from the website, partially so they could be part of the educational process. We began with a tour of the shop and a the standard safety talk. He’s taking things quite seriously. We’re going to make the box out of curly maple and cherry. We start out learning some of the basics of han...
