Workshop Interior Doors #4: the parts go together

434 days ago 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...

Workshop Interior Doors #3: the haunched mortise and tenon

436 days ago 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...

Outdoor Furniture #10: Patio Planter Boxes - Day 1

680 days ago 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....

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

496 days ago 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...

Cabinet Progress #6: Groovin on a Saturday Afternoon.

2558 days ago by gizmodyne | 6 comments »

Baby Got BackToday we completed our four cabinet boxes’ parts by cutting the groove for the backs. This sounds simple but we had to do a ton of double checking. Plus, I don’t think I mentioned that my biscuit joiner needed a little tune up. After last week’s dry fit, I realized that several of the cabinet rails had slightly miscut biscuits. So we recut 10 rails today. Screwing down the biscuit joiner helped as well. So, on to the tablesaw to cut the groove and trim the...

Thank you LJ!! I'm now a dadoer ;-)

1109 days ago by TopamaxSurvivor | 14 comments »

Cut my first dadoes tonight with a real dado blade set. Several years ago, pre Topamax, I bought a wobble blade. It needed an insert so I took my saw model to Sears. They had to order one. It didn’t fit. I figured I’d have to make one. I got busy with other things and never got back to it. Tonight I needed to make some serious dadoes 3/4” wide. I had some salvaged 1/4” hardboard. I roughed out an insert and friction fit it on the ends to hold it securely in ...

Cedar Gate Handle #1: Cedar Gate handle - Start to Finish

394 days ago by twobyfour16 | 0 comments »

So, I recently built a new cedar gate & needed some handles. I didn’t want to go out & buy some, so decided to make my own. Inspired by “http://lumberjocks.com/projects/48854” CaptainAhab’s handles, I ended up with:Here’s how I built them:Starting with a lamination of 3 pieces of clear Cedar which I planed down to about 2 1/8” thick:Obviously, I made a little template for the top curves out of 1/4” plywood & cut the top curve with the ban...

Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #10: Backside of a Carcase

714 days ago 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...

Contemporary Cross project #8: Shiplap on horizontal piece

1216 days ago by kevinw | 2 comments »

Now that the dado in the horizontal piece is complete put it temporarily in place over the vertical piece. The joint should be snug but neither loose or tight. Score the lines for cutting the curves on the vertical piece. You can see here the score lines ready to begin cutting. Repeat all the steps shown in earlier installments of the blog to create a dado in this piece that is 1/2 the depth of the lumber, etc. Here you see both pieces with the waste removed. They are...

352 days ago by bigchopperoo | 4 comments »

I posted a picture of a Craftsman Style Frame i made and i thought if anyone was interested, i have a two part video series of how i did it. The main jointery is the use of a half lap. It’s a simple and yet strong joint. I decided to show how to make it using both power tools and hand tools. Hope you enjoy it.chad stanton
