Shop Remodel #27: Oo La La Deux

12-28-2015 01:34 AM by bearkatwood | 6 comments »

Today I piddly farted around and put the catches into the door frames. They are friction catches and needed to be mortised in. All turned out well there. They hold the doors shut really well and look nice. I had to take a break from the carving as it was killing my shoulders, not used to that hard work :) So I decided to get French..No! Not like that you sicko!French cleats. I milled up some slats to inset into the door frames with a lip similar to the back of the cabinet...

Shop Remodel #24: Arrival of benchcraft hardware

12-23-2015 01:02 AM by bearkatwood | 4 comments »

Today was a good day! I started out the day by taking the advise many of you had and added a third leaf inlay to the left door face. I then spent the rest of the day carving the door frames where they met the panels to facilitate gluing them up. This way I wouldn’t have to worry about possibly nicking the panels when I carve the doors the rest of the way. I got my hardware in the mail for the workbench!! Very excited to get it especially when I am so close to being done with the cabi...

Shop Remodel #21: Run Forest!

12-18-2015 02:28 AM by bearkatwood | 4 comments »

So there I was chomping down my wheat-grass, vegan, soy-milk all natural, Tortellini for lunch (Hey I live in Oregon, you try going to Scotland and not having the haggis) So anyway there I was eating lunch, staring at the box I had just picked up from the post office. It had come!!! It was here!!! After months of waiting, my travisher had arrived! I ordered a Peter Galbert travisher and it was finally here. It was produced by Claire Minihan who did an amazing job. I think I was drooling over ...

Shop Remodel #20: Another Day Closer

12-17-2015 02:04 AM by bearkatwood | 14 comments »

With some projects you can see dramatic progress at the end of the day, this is not one of those projects. I have allotted roughly three months to finish the project knowing it was a huge undertaking. I will undoubtedly have to work on an order or side project during the time it is taking place, but for now I am just concentrating on the build. Like I said there wasn’t a big transformation today, but there was progress. I have all the drawer fronts dovetailed and roughly fit to their pe...

Shop Remodel #18: Rinse and Repeat

12-11-2015 09:31 PM by bearkatwood | 8 comments »

In the summer 1978 issue of FWW, Tage Frid wrote about tool cabinets.“Why bother making a tool cabinet when a crate with shelves nailed in would hold the tools? I believe if a person wants to make a living as a woodworker and furniture designer, a well-designed and executed tool cabinet is very important. It’s a pleasure to have a beautiful tool cabinet, where the tools are properly arranged and easy to find. And when a potential customer comes into the shop and sees a nice cabinet, half the ...

Dart Board Cabinet Build #3: Building the Cabinet Doors

10-06-2015 03:16 PM by Mike | 0 comments »

Hi All! Thank you again for clicking the link to take a look at what I have been doing with the Dart Board Cabinet Project. This last week was absolutely nuts and I wasn’t able to get everything done that I wanted to with the project. I was able to get the doors milled, glued, assembled, and finished up. Please leave a comment on what you think about the project so far. Recommendations on how I can make the videos better are always welcome. Enjoy! View on YouTube

Widdershins Joinery Blog #3: About My Shop

09-09-2014 11:01 PM by WiddershinsJoinery | 1 comment »

I’ve mentioned it, and will probably continued to do so, in my blog posts a great deal about my shop. Details and highlights, project photos and renovation plans. Here, though, will sit an occasionally updated list of details surrounding the shop itself. The building and some photos to act as a springboard into my winter wonderland. Nestled behind our outport home, just 50 feet from the saltwater shore, is the workshop building. The images to the right are the views, left and right...

Combining my Passions: Friendship Marquetry. #1: Upgrading my Desk Doors

04-21-2013 01:23 AM by shipwright | 30 comments »

Back in 2009 when my “woodworking as a hobby” life was just getting started I became interested in veneering and marquetry. Problem was I knew nothing about marquetry so I used a set of router bushings made for inlaying and adapted a style of marquetry cutting with them. One of my early projects was a couple of doors for a new desk to fit a little nook in my home office. The text accompanying the project post says ” I will improve” so I guess the time has co...

Entertainment Center #1: First Big Project

04-04-2013 07:04 AM by cjwelch | 1 comment »

I started this project for a friend a few months ago and will be putting the finishing touches on soon. It is a plywood box with pine face frame. I used my Kreg Jig for all the joints. This is the largest project I have tackled to date and has been a great learning experience. The plan has changed from the original drawings as we learned along the way. My wife might be a little upset that I have spent at least four times the cost of materials in new tools (and then some). I tell her it is an ...
