Cabinet Progress #8: The fir was flying.

2679 days ago by gizmodyne | 24 comments »

Building BoxesWe started to get stressed about completing both cabinets in the next two weeks in time for the first annual wood competition at our school. So we made the decision to complete one cabinet. Today we started to build the drawers. Our drawers will be dovetailed in the front and dadoed in the back. They will receive another nicer drawer front. Step One. Cutting out the knots. Step Two. Resawing.We were able to get two 1/2” thick pieces out of each board. Step Thre...

Our Shop #1: Basic Layout

2606 days ago by Lee A. Jesberger | 24 comments »

When designing the shop I tried to anticipate the type of work we would be doing. Looking back, I wasn’t even close. However, in spite of that, the work flow is very much the same for many woodworking projects. Our shop is laid out considering that work flow. Our entrance door is where we unload both sheet goods and solid lumber. We stack the lumber on stickers, prior to use, and the plywood is placed on a drywall cart. We place lumber on the chop saw station, which ...

872 days ago by StumpyNubs | 21 comments »

What is the difference between Stumpy Nubs and the Townsend brothers? While you’re pondering that unbelievable brain teaser, ask yourself what is the best tool you own that cost less than $4 new, and try to picture Stumpy cutting his hair with a lawn mower. Those are just some of the things you’ll find in the latest episode of Blue Collar Woodworking! When you’re done, visit the Stumpy Store for detailed plans of our Bench-top-biscuit-machine. And watch more great e...

Router Table #9: Drawers, Bits, and a little Playtime

1685 days ago by PurpLev | 19 comments »

Had some shop time today with 42 degrees outside, it was quite a lovely day. my compressor came back to life also – I guess when it goes below 40 the air is too thin for the compressor to be able to raise the pressure in the tank. I also got the radiant heater from Lee Valley. Last time around, by the time I decided to order it- they were out of stock, and just received new stock this week. it works well, not as well as I was hoping for, but decent. To turn it on/off you have to yank...

Little Tansu Inspired Case #3: Drawers

2381 days ago by Dorje | 18 comments »

I had some time in the evening to continue on my little case… I was able to get the drawer lock joints cut on the four little drawers. Fortunately, I set this up the other day. Without instructions, it took me a little longer than it probably should have. Once you dial in the height for a good fit, it’s all in the fence adjustment. Pretty decent little machine joint, that’ll be a lot faster to perform the next time: Next up, I cut the grooves for the bottoms (on the ...

Concave Chest of Drawers #1: Getting Started

2009 days ago by Blake | 17 comments »

I started my next project based on an idea I got from a gorgeous piece of maple that I had laying around which I found when I cleaned out my shop recently. The board was an impulse buy several months ago. I didn’t have a use in mind for it when I bought it. It was 6’ long, almost 10” wide and a little over 1/2” thick. This is the design I came up with for a Concave Chest of Drawers: Some of the Features will change as I start building, especially on the struc...

Machinist Toolbox #7: Draw me a Draw

1345 days ago by PurpLev | 16 comments »

What do you know, I was able to use the last 3 days for some extra shop time! As planned, I cut the drawers parts on day 1 (not a full day, but it did happen on the first day). On day 2 I was able to build the drawers and glue them up. The plan was to use half blind dovetails for the solid maple fronts. I must say, making these many dovetails at such a small scale was exhausting (but good practice)! the joints improved from one drawer to the next, not all perfect, but considering the scale...

Little Tansu Inspired Case #2: Keyed Miters and Drawer Parts

2384 days ago by Dorje | 16 comments »

I had a little bit of time this afternoon to work on the little case… I keyed the miters with walnut: Glued up the dividers: and, cut out the all the drawer parts: I’ve got drawer bottom stock prepared from the first day (in the background of the photo above), so my next step will be to cut the joinery for the drawers. And, since this is supposed to be a quick and dirty project, I’m going to rout the drawers with a drawer lock bit. Like this:

004: cheap, rolling lathe stand #4: installing the drawers

1665 days ago by Gary Fixler | 15 comments »

When I last left off, I showed the dovetail slides, but they didn’t have a good way yet of attaching to the drawers, and weren’t in the drawer carcase yet. That reminds me. Here’s the carcase installed: I cut a piece of scrap ply to fit on the top and tacked it on with small, set nails – lots of ‘em :) And now for another rambling video on how I finished up the drawer slides: This was the glue-up on the drawer blocks: Adding walnut pegs thro...
