Building For The Wife #2: Ipe drawer glides for custom kitchen bureau.

09-14-2015 08:47 AM by fatman51 | 3 comments »

I had to edit this blog and change the title, because I did identify the wood I have as Ipe. Ipe or Brazilian walnut is a popular high end exterior decking lumber. Mine came from from Brazil and according to ( ), Ipe was moved from the Tabebuia genus, listed as a spiecies of ironwood ( ) to the Handroanthus genus, which is not on that list, in 2007. This is news to me, ...

MDF and Drawer Slides #1: What screw type or method is best to fasten slides to MDF core plywood carcase?

04-08-2015 04:30 PM by HappyHowie | 20 comments »

I recently changed my mind about hand fitting these drawers to the dresser I am making. I decided in order to quickly finish this project that I would use side mounted drawer slides. The dresser is primarily MDF core maple plywood with maple hardwood trim on its edges. I followed the plan I purchased for joining the panels with biscuits. Originally I was going to follow the plan to hand fit the drawers by precisely fitting the drawer parts by using bench planes. Recently I decided to u...

Arts and Crafts 6 Drawer Dresser #10: Stain, Lacquer, and Fitting Inset Drawers

02-01-2013 09:08 PM by pintodeluxe | 12 comments »

With a stack of drawers ready to go, I turn my attention to applying the finish to the carcase.-----Oil based stain was applied to the carcases and drawer fronts. I sprayed the carcases, and wiped stain on the drawer fronts. -----Then I sprayed two coats of lacquer, scuff sanding between coats. ----- Next I install the Centerline full extension drawer slides. Having web frames is convienent, and I simply set the slides down on the web frames. -----I use a jig to align the slides. ...

Sandpaper Storage Cabinet #1: Sandpaper Storage Cabinet-1

This is a versatile little cabinet in which you can store whatever your heart desires in it. The overall dimensions for this project is 21”w x 11 ¼”d x 13 ¼” h. Of course if you need something bigger than make it bigger, or to fit your needs. I am using Baltic Birch for mine but use whatever material you feel like using. As always if you have any questions email them to me at—

002: a rolling base for my planer #7: parallel sliding dovetail drawer slides, part I

02-03-2010 12:39 PM by Gary Fixler | 12 comments »

Last time in this series I put together some drawer boxes. Next they’d need slides, and for that I went with parallel sliding dovetails, which I first saw GaryK create in walnut here. I’ve wanted since I saw those early last year to try my hand at making some. I spent some time one night last week building a SketchUp model based on GaryK’s photos of his results and designed around a bit I had from the Incra set, then wrote up a plan of attack for how to go about building the...

Kitchen Remodel #2: The Prototype Cabinet

03-25-2008 03:24 AM by SteveV | 9 comments »

OK, I’ve been doing this pretty steady now for 3 yrs with a semi real shop and my wife still has her doubts. So when I told her I was going to rebuild our kitchen she was a little skeptical. Once we settled on the design (the one I talked her into), I decided to build a cabinet for our bathroom renovation that would incorporate all the design feature of the new kitchen cabinets. Now she has something to look at. This will also allow me to work out the paint scheme. Hardware ̷...
