The base is basically a piece of 3/4” poplar plywood with a solid oak edge band that is secured with pocket hole screws and glue. I machined a 3/4” dado 1” up from the bottom of the left, right and back sides and the base just slides in. Before assembly I still need to position the 4 locking casters and glue and screw the the base and shelf into place. The upper shelf is the exactly the same piece as the base except I placed to dado 6” from each side to positi...
I built a router cabinet and table about 2 years ago and it’s simply a must have tool in my shop . Although it was one of my first shop projects I did a decent job on it but the design failed in a few ways . You can see my first router cabinet here : The other day I was I was wheeling it and 2 of the casters fell off , I used the casters that you insert into a leg, the leg cracked and out came the caster. I also built my own table using MDF and that began to sag where the route...
View on YouTube My new project is to build a traditional hand tool cabinet out of reclaimed materials. In this video, I cut the dovetails and assemble the frame of the dresser.
View on YouTube In this video I take some Oak stock that I previously prepared and make a picture frame. Repetitive parts have been edited out. Total real time to make this was about one hour start to finish, not including the 30 minutes clamping time.
Finished my wife’s workbench. Check it out and let me know what you think or if you have any suggestions on how I could have done it differently.
Tired of coffee table videos yet? I took a break from editing it and put this one together. Yes, a complete build in one video! My niece needed a key and mail organiser for her new home. View on YouTube
Wood has three dimensions and the table saw cuts both X (length) and Y (width) The Z (thickness) axis needs a lunch box planer. The table saw has the Incra rip fence and miter gauge so X and Y are covered. Z however needed some help getting the same accuracy as the saw. One of the benifits of digital gauges is that I can see the reading without squinting or having to bend down. I have a digital height gauge to set the saw height and set the router bits consistently. Repeatability is...
Main dresser is done, and almost loaded up. A drawer I had found on the curb during Trash Day provides the start for the next little project. I had that old box of chisels, that needed a better place to hang out in.. This is the drawer I found. I separated the chisels into two groups. The Plastic handle crowd was laid out in the drawer, and some scrap pine was added as dividers.. I’ll finish nailing the dividers in place later. There is a place to stash a small chest of...
Used to have a shop, X got in the divorce. :( Fast forward 15 years & I have 2/3 of 1/2 of a garage to build a cabinet shop in. The core of any shop is the table saw and within my (retired) spending limit I got a brand new Grizzly G0715P. Simultaneously with the saw purchase I added an Incra LS-III rip fence and an Incra miter gauge. I’m disabled and can’t walk / stand a lot so everything is within reach of my chair in front of the saw. I’ve got most all of th...
Hey everybody! My name is frank and I am a hobby craftsman from germany. I already talked about the build of my DIY table saw in my blog. In my youtube channel you can find the video for this build. If you are interested, just click here!But as I completed my table saw, I soon realized that I have to work on the dust extraction. After a lot of setbacks I figured out a very effective solution. The main problem was still being able to reach the saw (for the settings). So I made four removabl...
