Cherry Bookcase #1: Working with sheet goods

04-08-2009 04:38 AM by Topapilot | 4 comments »

I wanted a low bookcase, so I looked on LJ’s projects list for ideas. Dr. Sawdust had made one that I liked, so I started the same one. After visiting the lumberyard (ouch!) it’s time to break down the plywood. Betsy had asked about this a while back so here are some pictures of how I do it. I use a base made of 2×4’s with lap joints: Then I lay down the sheet and set up the EZ Guide from Eurikeazone: With the guide there is no worries about the cut being st...

techniques #1: Found a way I like to cut straight-end, non-through rip and crosscuts in plywood

03-14-2009 11:18 PM by Gary Fixler | 0 comments »

This is probably a common technique, with a name, but it only occurred to me today. I gave it a shot, and it worked out really well. I’m going to use it from now on for non-through cuts, and by that, I mean rips and crosscuts that don’t go from one end to the other, but do cut through bottom and top of the ply. Basically, once I set the blade height, and fence, I run the cut up to a 2” mark I make from the leading edge. Then I back it out, flip it over, and measure the di...

Kitchen Cabinets #7: Whoops

03-09-2009 05:10 PM by Dan Lyke | 0 comments »

With Yardbirds going out of business, I bought a bunch of stuff to run some new electrical (although even with the discount their wire was no cheaper than other sources, so I had to pick and choose), and in the process of picking conduit paths through the garage I cleaned out the shop. So yesterday I milled a whole bunch of wood into door frames. I’d picked up a bunch of eastern hard maple off of Craigslist, random sizes, about 5’; lengths, so I took the ones closest to my door...

Experience with EurekaZone and Toolup.Com

12-22-2008 07:45 AM by bensaw | 6 comments »

So I’m getting geared up here and placed an order last week for a new Millwaukee circular saw with Diablo 40 tooth blade. I also ordered the EurekaZone rail system SGS-100. Had an issue with both orders. :-( The Diablo blade arrived missing a tooth. I have emailed Toolup.com on Saturday night (last night) and am awaiting a respose. The EurekaZone rail system arrived with a broken anti-splinter guard.I emailed them on Thursday regarding the issue and have yet to hear from them. ...

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

10-23-2008 05:23 AM 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

08-31-2008 04:09 AM 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

08-26-2008 02:09 AM 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...

The cover of the roof with wood is finished. I made side rails on my own way. The view from underneath is satisfying for me.

Printer Table #1 (Basic Construction)

03-09-2008 02:50 AM by teenagewoodworker | 8 comments »

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

12-27-2007 04:52 AM 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...
