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

489 days ago 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

506 days ago 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 ...

French screen doors #3: Mounting grills and door reinforcement

862 days ago by Craftsman on the lake | 3 comments »

This third installment includes a short narrated slideshow of the mounting of the grills made in the last installment and the continued reinforcement of the door. If you remember, I’m making a set of screen doors for set of Anderson french exterior doors. Anyone have any recommendations on a good outside finish for pine? I’m thinking spar or marine varnish.

Work In Progress #5: Canasta Final Part

1004 days ago by Byron | 2 comments »

So heres the finished thing. You can see it open in the pictures on the bottom. Better pictures soon to come. The drawers are an important part of my design because of my mother. When I was younger she taught my older brother and myself how to play canasta, and always had two nice decks of cards to play, unfortunately we were not the cleanest while playing and the cards almost always got ruined. Eventually she started to hide the cards. It came to the point where she would burry the c...

Entertainment Center #6: The Doors

1055 days ago by Marc | 0 comments »

I’ve got my own site where I like to write about my projects so rather than duplicate them here I’ll just provide a little teaser. If you’d like to read the full post just click here. The final things that needed to be constructed for the entertainment center were the doors. These are a simple frame but the interior panel is actually a lattice ‘weave’. I wanted these to come out right since they are a major visual feature of the entertainment center so I took my sweet time making them. (Th...

Kitchen Cabinets #2: The grand sell-out

1072 days ago by AnthonyC | 3 comments »

Well, I kinda sold out. Day job stayed hectic longer and the wife just wanted the kitchen finished, so I went pre-made. :( The cost wasn’t so bad (building them myself), finish was already done (I don’t have a good spray booth yet), and it gave me time to do other work on mechanicals, flooring, etc. Ended up with a similar design, but 1/2” overlay with beaded outer edge doors, which gives the inset look from a distance. Went with CabinetAuthority.com, who are resell...

Oak 6 Panel Door Swap out

1249 days ago by GrandsonOfRue | 2 comments »

My home was built with white 6 panel hollow core interior doors. I have long hated them. Thus this project was born. I also hate cheap brass lock sets and hinges. (On a side note I hate my builder – no one takes pride in their work anymore) I know that my doors are all Mastercraft. I started by purchasing a Mastercraft 6-panel Oak door. I scrapped the frame, finished the door and hung it. I did this to avoid the need to drill the lock set hole and mortise the hinges. I considered ...

Catamaran Cupboard Door Remake... #7: Final straight...

1282 days ago by degoose | 17 comments »

Coming down the home straight with these doors. Here is a quick shot of the set up for the slot cutting on the old router table.. Finished the rebates on the panels… back 4 mm and the front 7 mm Using the Incra Fence and the Woodpecker Unilift made it easy to switch from one height to another … Moved the blade on the TS to 45 degrees and positioned the fence for the bevel cuts on the front of the panels.. A Wixey Digital Ange Guide is very useful here.. A...

Catamaran Cupboard Door Remake... #6: Update...profiles.

1298 days ago by degoose | 12 comments »

Taken longer than expected..due to the additional steps to each of these doors…and the fact that I keep putting it off… sidetracked with other projects.. As you can see all the mortices and tenons have been cut…[using the Leight FMT] I have also cut the Chamfers on the inside edges of the door frames… this was done with a piloted chamfering router bit while the frames were clamped together… You will also notice that I have taken the time and effort to ma...
