Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #11: Reclaiming a Tambour Door

05-03-2012 12:23 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 16 comments »

EDIT: Updated to eliminate PB BS. Smitty If you’ve been following along, the space at the bottom left of the cabinet is reserved for install of a tambour (roll-up) door salvaged from the donor Hoosier cabinet. Not certain what will ultimately live in that cubby re: tools, but it’s inspired by a tambour’d cabinet Stanley sold in the 30s. New, red oak tambour doors (15”x17”) cost more than $80 per. Wow, didn’t know what a treasure I had back when I reduced...

Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #9: Carcase Glue-up!

04-30-2012 02:35 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 22 comments »

EDIT: Updated to eliminate PB BS. Smitty Oh, yeah, it’s time to stop cutting bait and ‘fish’ for a next-level assembly with this project. In other words, this carcase has been apart and together a bunch of times for marking, cutting, and fitting rabbets and dados. All of those shelves and partitions are at the ready; there’s nothing more do do with the carcase apart that can’t just as well be done while it’s together. In the meantime, I have T&G back...

Work In Progress #4: Canasta Part 4

11-22-2011 07:29 AM by Byron | 0 comments »

So here it is, the final glue up. I over clamped to be safe, not in the sense of clamping pressure but as far as where I was clamping. This glue up entailed gluing all 4 sets of tails and pins with the mitered front (all the same piece) of the carcass as well as gluing in the center of the floating panel. By glueing the center of the panel I control the movement of expansion and contraction to both edges, ensuring the gaps always stay very close to the same, also keeping them as smal...

A tool for clamping a wide variety of joints

10-19-2011 02:39 PM by davesblokkz | 8 comments »

When working on my various woodworking projects I found times that I had to glue odd joints and really didn’t have the clamps I needed. The solution to the problem was the development of a clamping block that simplified clamping these uncommon joints. The Universal Clamping Block tool will let you clamp the usual miters and and frames but will also facilitate the clamping of a great variety of other joints that occur in woodworking projects that present special clamping problems. ...

Hand Tools: Thrift Stores, Hock Shops and Garage Sale acquisitions #1: Clamps and Pliers

04-22-2011 11:35 PM by Lee Barker | 4 comments »

Used tools: Often a great bargain, occasionally a spectacular bargain, sometimes a puzzle, rarely but delightfully a chance to acquire something with soul and a story to go along with it. Clamps are certainly about the least glamorous of all our toys, er, tools. But you can’t have enough, as the adage goes, and because they don’t make noise or sawdust or plug in, they don’t have much emotional draw. I’ve managed to bridge that and make it a passion to find an...

Grandma's Picture Frame #1: Thinking through the Design & Dimensions

02-09-2011 06:14 PM by spunwood | 1 comment »

My mother suggested that I make a picture frame for my grandmother’s 100th birthday. The party is in march, and the four of us (Stephanie, Beatrice, Elijah, and I) will be flying to New York. I looked online for table saw frames because I do not have much skil with or many bits for a router, and no router table. What I found was: http://americanwoodworker.com/blogs/projects/archive/2009/12/04/tablesaw-picture-frame.aspx This is a lovely and classic frame. The wood is beaut...

Contemporary Cross project #3: Initial cuts of interior parts

11-29-2010 02:48 AM by kevinw | 0 comments »

We are now ready to begin sawing out our components. By hot gluing the two boards together this allows us to cut two identical pieces of each part so that they will fit properly. Note that I am only sawing out the interior shapes of the cross at this point. This will allow me to have better control when re-gluing. Here the vertical piece has been cut out. Keep in mind that you must get the best cut possible. Be sure your blade is narrow enough that it can saw the curves without backing up ...
