Building a Houseful of Furniture #4: Guest Bedroom

04-13-2013 11:42 PM by DustyMark | 2 comments »

Watch this video to take a quick tour of the furniture I’ve made for our guest bedroom. There are only two major pieces in this bedroom; a dresser and a bed. This is a Norm Abrams design dresser. The primary wood is cherry and the secondary wood is poplar. The drawers are dovetailed and also have solid wood drawer guides attached to the bottom. I made this before I owned a lathe, so the knobs are an ugly mushroom style that I purchased. Notice the through dovetails on the ba...

Building a Houseful of Furniture #3: Living Room and Dining Room

03-24-2013 08:15 PM by DustyMark | 4 comments »

Watch this video to take a short tour of the furniture I’ve made in my living room and dining room. These rooms are the first thing you see when you walk into our house. Unfortunately, the living room had very little furniture that I’d made. My wife and I came up with a furniture plan to resolve that and I’m well on my way to filling the living room with hand-crafted furniture. The rocking chairs are quite comfortable and I love the sweeping lines. The foot stools...

Pipe Stand #1: Seven Day Pipe Stand With A Case of Exotic Drawers

10-01-2012 10:14 PM by Operaman | 2 comments »

I have been commissioned to build a seven day pipe stand with a case of drawers by one of America’s foremost artisanal tobacco pipe makers. This is an intricate piece requiring many, many hours of planning joinery, considering wood movement to determine what wants to be solid and what wants to be veneered (using shop-made veneer nearly 1/8” thick), number of drawers and arrangement, secret compartment planning, and combinations of precious, extoic woods and local secondary specie...

Rolling Shop Cart #1: Construction...

07-29-2012 03:29 PM by dakremer | 3 comments »

Frame is made from 2X4 construction grade pine. All shiplapped, glued, and screwed together. The wheels are locking wheels from Harbor Freight. (if you look close you can see the mistake I made in the upper left hand corner…I decided to just leave it) 1/2” BCX plywood for top and pegboard for the sides…. Next up is the drawers. I plan on making two pull-out drawers in the front. I’ve completed one of them so far (minus the drawer front). The b...

Porter Cable Dovetail Jig #4216 #1: Made the buy!!!!

07-08-2012 06:42 PM by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 3 comments »

OK….. I pulled the trigger on the Porter Cable #4216 dovetail jig. I need it for the kitchen in the new house and I am up against a huge deadline. The few extra dollars I paid for this unit is for the templates included. Mini dovetails and box joints and a through dovetail and box joint jig. Now, LJs, I have a Leigh D4R so I guess the question is, “Why in the world did you ‘downgrade’? Well, I have about 130 or so drawers to build. I am hoping this jig will speed up...

shop bench with lots of storage #2: progress on the drawers

06-04-2012 11:05 PM by Mainiac Matt | 4 comments »

It starts with a plan… I know their not super sophisticated, but with a few 1” pin nails to help reinforce the glue joint, they feel pretty solid. I’ve had this stack dado for a while now, but haven’t had need of it till now…so I had to make an auxillary fence and a ZCI Here’s the set up for cutting the lap joints first lap joint gluing up the drawers… I really need to get some more clamps…. I like using the paper t...

shop bench with lots of storage #1: resurecting an old workbench build

06-04-2012 08:02 PM by Mainiac Matt | 1 comment »

I downloaded a CAD file for this open source work bench design ages ago, and set about scavenging recycled materials. I purchased a couple sheets of 5/8” MDF that was extra from a job we ran at work and got the shop forman to cut the drawer sides, ends and drawer box sides, tops and bottoms on the panel saw. I then came across a pallet of 42”x42” chipboard that one of our customers asked us to scrap out for them, and was able to get 10 or so sheets for free. I order...
