Workshop Interior Doors #3: the haunched mortise and tenon

02-03-2013 08:39 PM by ~Julie~ | 10 comments »

My pine is all ready to go. Knotty Pine is difficult to work with because there are often holes and cracks in the knots. I try and work around that as much as possible, but I love the look of pine, and I feel the knots just add character. For the panels in my doors I was going to put 1/4” pine faced plywood. In my local city I could not find 1/4” ply that had two good sides which I need for the doors because they are seen from both sides. Instead I bought tongue and groov...

Sweet Chest of Drawers Build #9: The guts: part 1

12-06-2012 07:05 AM by Kyle | 5 comments »

Woke up and ate some more ding dongs this morning. Since I’m figuring this out as I go, I thought I’d work on the inside of this chest of drawers. I decided to copy the image of the drawer dividers that you see looking at the front of the dresser, and transpose it onto the inside back of it and make the drawer runners mortise and tenon.. I don’t know why, but here is the beginning of the process. Time to bust out the poplar….........The inside drawer dividers are also...

Outdoor Furniture #10: Patio Planter Boxes - Day 1

06-05-2012 02:04 AM by Retsof | 0 comments »

I started a new project today. I’m building two large patio planter boxes. The final dimensions should be close to 41” long x 24” wide x 20” high. I’m working from Woodsmith’s Outdoor Woodworking book. Here’s a link to their website: http://woodsmithstore.com/w1021.html There were a lot of cuts to make for this build. The diagrams for this project are pretty detailed and that’s a good thing because there is no cut list provided....

Cabinet Making #3: Making Drawers

06-28-2010 06:43 AM by Tim Dorcas | 4 comments »

Up to now, things were relatively easy. Now the actual work was going to start. To make the drawers, I decided to use Poplar. However, I did something I would now change. I purchased 4/4 of the stuff with the idea that I would resaw in half on my bandsaw. In retrospect, I should have purchased 8/4 and cut it into thirds. After resawing, planing and sanding, the boards were much thinner than I had hoped. The next decision was how to construct the drawers themselves. I have an Akeda Dovetai...

Beads Box #4: Mild Cutting, Doors part, Dadoes, and rabbets

10-08-2009 03:28 PM by PurpLev | 12 comments »

I’ve had this project on the back burner (literally- it was standing in the back on the burner…) for a long time (just click on the “Previous blog entry” and you’ll see what I mean). and I think it’s due to the fact I have high expectations out of this project, that sometimes I feel are a bit over my capabilities and abilities at this day and age. But… I finally got some courage, and cut the carcass down so I can pick up on this project, and move o...

Building a Dr. White's Chest #4: Face Frame

05-03-2013 12:55 PM by DustyMark | 0 comments »

Complicated Face Frame The Dr. White’s chest is a combination wardrobe/chest of drawers and has a complicated face frame. There are eight mortise and tenon joints, ten dovetail joints, and one half-lap joint in the frame. I cut the dovetail joints with my Leigh dovetail jig. Watch this video to see how I cut the female portion of the face frame dovetail joints. I cut the male portion of the joint using the same jig in the vertical mode and the bit set at the same depth. NOTE: Chip out...

Workshop Interior Doors #4: the parts go together

02-06-2013 12:16 AM by ~Julie~ | 10 comments »

Before I cut my rails to length I make sure the exact size I need. I won’t go into the fractions, etc, because no one will have the same sizes as I have anyway, but it’s important to check that the doors will fit the opening with the hinge and a space between. I laid my pieces out before putting the tenons on the ends of the rails. I also made sure my pieces of “panelling” would fit into the grooves in the rails. Here is one of the rails with the haunched t...

Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #10: Backside of a Carcase

05-02-2012 03:55 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 24 comments »

Whatever was selected for the backing material of this cabinet needed to add strength, look good and be 1/2” thick. Plywood meets two out of three of those requirements, but I just can’t fall in love with the idea of plywood in my tool till. Biggest hurdle with any other material is the work I might have to do to get it to that 1/2” thickness. I checked the remaining inventory of poplar (says Don W, and he should know) boards salvaged from somewhere, some time ago. This s...

Bathroom Vanity Commision #4: Bottom shelf, medicine cabinet, and spraying the interior

03-24-2014 08:19 PM by emetric | 1 comment »

As I have mentioned in an earlier post, it was decided early on that we would make the bottom shelf slatted instead of flat plywood. This actually turned out to be a little more challenging that I had hoped. It ended up with 12 slats, originally 14 but I dropped the 2 outer slats because I felt the joinery would be too busy, all connected with dominos to the front and rear rails. I also went ahead and pre-finished this shelf in anticipation of access issues while spraying. This piec...

Storage Beds #1: First Project in a Long Time

02-24-2012 10:58 PM by gubawatts | 0 comments »

I found some great ideas for building storage beds for our two boys on the internet, at Ana White Homemaker. After studying these plans for a bit, I decided I wanted to make some changes, mainly to upgrade the joinery methods and make the base cabinets deeper, so they met in the middle under the box spring. So, here’s what I came up with after learning google sketchup, and going through a few design revisions. This bed is basically made up of several box cabinets that will be bolted ...
