Building Craftsman Style Medicine Cabinets

09-26-2016 03:52 PM by Marty Backe | 3 comments »

It’s been awhile since my last build video, but this one took awhile to complete. We are undertaking a master bathroom remodel and I am doing all the finish work which includes the cabinetry. In this video I show how I designed, built, and installed two craftsman style medicine cabinets. It’s a long video, but you see everything that’s involved.

How I built custom interior doors for around $40 each

09-04-2016 12:46 PM by Wes Harville | 6 comments »

I have low ceilings in my basement, so I needed doors that are about 6” shorter than standard. I would have just bought them, but the factory would just cut 6” off the bottom leaving me with a 2” bottom rail which would have looked very unproportional. I didn’t want to spend the time or money on building frame and panel doors so I spent a week wracking my brain until I came up with this method. Hope you enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FzE470rqnmk!

Craftsman Saw Rebuild #1: Intro and Gameplan!

08-28-2016 01:21 PM by inghamworkshop | 3 comments »

Hello everyone, it’s both my first post to the site and my first ever blog post all in one. I’ve been browsing the site for a few weeks now because I’ve been on the market for a new table saw and sort of fell in love with the idea of rebuilding a Craftsman 113. Well after contacting a couple of people through my local Craigslist, today I went out and picked up not just one but two table saws. The first saw I found and actually had a friend go and take a look at for me...

Blogging instead of Woodworking #20: At Last, a Morris Chair, Part 1

06-21-2016 04:10 PM by Douglas | 0 comments »

I just blogged (with lots of photos) about the Morris Chair I built this past spring. This part 1 goes through most of the build, and part 2 will be finishing, upholstery and stuff. For LJs, I’m also posting a project here too. http://dcwwoodworks.com/blog/2016/6/14/at-last-a-morris-chair (link fixed!) Here’s a few pictures…

Unisaw Restoration #3: Is 4 tables saws too many?

05-28-2016 03:23 PM by Rapola | 0 comments »

I made some decent progress on the unisaw. With the exception of the yoke/motor bracket assembly, all of the base components are disassembled and I have started stripping the old paint off the cabinet. Hopefully I’ll finish out this long weekend with most of the parts cleaned and primed for final paint. There is a tapered pin holding the yoke/motor bracket together that has thus far thwarted all reasonable attempts with PB blaster and heat. In reading various forums, it seems the ...

Craftsman Side Table #1: Planning

12-28-2015 01:19 AM by DanMelander | 2 comments »

Working on a Craftsman side table for the living room. I started with a design I purchased from Woodsmith magazine, and redrew it in Sketchup to change a few things. The original design was narrower, had side spindles instead of slats, and a smaller drawer. I am making it out of cherry, and I’m thinking of using walnut for the top, and maybe the drawer front. The drawers will be maple with a plywood bottom. I have purchased the cherry wood, and now to get started!

Table Saw Restoration #1: Craftsman 113.241691 Flex Drive Table Saw

12-25-2015 02:07 PM by Avi | 2 comments »

Backstory: Hi all! I’ve landed on this website through many a google search related to projects I’ve worked on and I thought I would give back to the community by posting a journal of my table saw restorations. This is my second restoration. The first was of another craftsman (Model No. 315.228390) which went very well, I unfortunately didn’t take pictures along the way. After using that saw for a week or 2, the arbor bearings decided to fail and it now makes a terrible soun...
