Lessons Learned #5: Cutting guides make the world go 'round

2129 days ago by sry | 6 comments »

As a beginning woodworker without a large shop full of tools, I’m was at first skeptical about my ability to get by and produce interesting things without tools like a table saw or band saw. One of the things that’s really helped me get by is the cutting guide. I built a massive 8’ long cutting guide for my Ryobi circular saw, which makes it about 1000 times easier to chop up plywood without being dependent on the table saw I don’t have. I decided this evening tha...

Kitchen Cabinets #2: Working on a countertop

2182 days ago by Dan Lyke | 1 comment »

This weekend’s goal is getting the cabinet beside the stove to at least have a usable counter-top. We picked up a beaten up 10’x2’ glued up piece of maple countertop off of Craigslist for $50, and that’s becoming the surface for beside the stoive, and the narrow counter for under the window, with a backsplash cut from the scraps. Today I took a deep breath and cut the first pieces. As I said, the counter-top was pretty beat up with a few gaps, so as I sanded...

Kitchen Cabinets #1: Kitchen cabinet doors

2187 days ago by Dan Lyke | 3 comments »

I debated whether I should put this entry here or over at HomeRefurbers, but that site really hasn’t taken off yet, and the process of coming up with our kitchen cabinets is feeling a whole lot more like woodworking than it is home improvement. Although an upgrade from the 1 person 1947 kitchen will certainly be an improvement. My arm was good enough this weekend to play in the shop again. My main project was to mock up a prototype to some lightweight appliance lift ideas I̵...

Hey Everybody In this episode of the Teenage Woodworker I go over some basic cabinet construction in the first part of a three part series where i make a printer table. There are a lot of technical things that i go over but try to stay with me for the whole episode. As always since i am only using a digital camera to film the sound is a little bad. so try to bear with me it helps to turn up the sound and sit a little bit away from the computer. this improves the sound a little bit. ...

First Shop #3: Christmas and new tools

2430 days ago by YooperCasey | 5 comments »

Hello folks! Hope all have had a wonderful Christmas. Mine has been hectic but overall a great year. I’ll keep it brief as it is late… I received two notable woodworking gifts this year. The first is a Bosch CS20 Circular saw. A circular saw has been on my list as a future purchase and I had no clue I would be getting one. It came from my grandfather and all indications so far show it to be an excellent piece of equipment. It is stout unit and I look forward to making som...
