Filling the drawers from this project.Turns out you can get a lot in a 13-3/4” wide x 16-3/4” deep x 7” tall drawer. This one has three levels of organization. OCD is completely satisfied. Bottom level dividers 3/8” x 2-1/2” dividers, friction fit, no glue. Holds touch up filler, stain & graining bottles, burn in sticks. Middle level is wax rub on sticks. 3/4” deep sandwiched between bottom and top levels Top level is for the most used s...
Hello all (echo,o,o,o) several hundred “reads”, no comments, so either you’re all riveted to your seats awaiting the next installment, or that’s several hundred open page, scroll down a bit, go read something more interesting. Not wanting to leave this half way through I shall proceed with the upper aron frames and front rail joinery. The apron panels were to be framed with pieces of leopardwood. Here you can see the top pieces which are grooved to fit onto a rabbe...
Hello all, things have been deathly quiet on the first installment of this blog, which I started due to interest on the project I posted here. Having started, I should go on, so in this post I’ll show how the remaining veneered panels for the table aprons and the legs came together. Here is the substrate for one of the small side apron panels being planed up, with the thick re-sawn veneer that would be stuck to it. The substrate is a piece of Primavera and I did not back it with a ...
This is one of my earliest videos. I had built some shop cabinets and I needed some drawer pulls, so I figured I would make some using an old plastic cabinet handle as a template. A year later and they still work, but I have a different, more comfortable design that I use now. The purpose of this video is to show that it doesn’t take much to make functional items for the shop. Let’s all sit back and enjoy this old video of me figuring out how to film a project. Enjoy! Quic...
I filmed the build on my YouTube Channel. Please check it out! http://youtu.be/qDOujXINlE0 Typical washer and dryers are lower to the ground. You can buy stands for each unit for around $150-250. I decided to build mine and incorporate stylish hardware, larger drawers, classy hutch, and a special detergent feature. The build consists of MDF, Poplar face frames, brushed nickel hardware, full extension drawer slides, Oil based primer, and white paint. Primary construction method was ra...
A friend of mine offered me an old dresser that they were throwing out, so I headed on down to fetch it. The dresser was old, but not handmade. The drawer fronts were curved and therefore no use to me. I saved the knobs though. Disassembling it I noticed a few oddities in its construction. The side panels, which are typically made of plywood are actually very thin boards. They are also flexible and somewhat delicate. The top might be one solid piece of wood, but with breadboard ends and a...
I started working on a drawer to hold my nutsert and rivet guns and some odds and ends. I think it turned out pretty well, but just need to adjust the depth when I rip the divider strips as they sit a little proud. The next drawer is one to store my commonly used screws and other fasteners. Next time I’ll get around to the deep drawer and maybe a mini french cleat system on the sides.
I’ve been using open shelving units hung on my shed walls for years because I have issues with creepy crawlies, but I’m wanting something to store smaller items in that is more compact. I also wanted to try out the $5 track saw I made from an old circular saw. (PS: it works GREAT) I started off by building a cabinet from 18mm plywood: 668w x 865h x 750d. The 668 may seem an odd dimension but it allows me to make the drawer bases from a 12mm plywood sheet ripped down the middle....
I decided to make a pull-out drawer for the ~7” gap between cabinets. I toyed with different uses and came up with clamp storage. This freed up two drawers for other uses. I need to find a decent way to make replaceable labels for the drawers.
So here it is. I am basing this project on one several other talented individuals have done. They include, but are not limited to, Zzzzdoc, Tedth66, and Spencer. I only have the rough outline right now but plan on cutting wood this week. I have the mobile base on 4” swiveling castors. I matched the drawer base to the same height as the original base minus 4 inches for the casters. I made the base 28×68.5 and recessed the cabinet one inch all around so once the drawer fron...
