Daily Update #87: Hospice Prototype

08-15-2011 02:56 PM by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

I don’t normally do prototypes, but when your doing several beds you may want to work out the bugs before you get into mass producing the parts. It’s a prototype and a selling item. I haven’t really sold the job yet. I’m pretty sure I will and if I don’t, I’ll leave this on on the showroom floor as an example of my work. I always need more of my stuff in our showroom. This one will probably stay on the showroom floor. This is finished with a standard ...

Machinist Toolcart #8: Drawers: Part I

08-08-2011 03:22 AM by PurpLev | 4 comments »

I’ve been sort of stuck with this project once it was time to get to the drawers mostly because for lack of material. I wanted to keep all the drawers made of same material and not pick and choose from what I could find at hand, and the only material that I have at ~1/2” thickness range that would make a good fit is some QS oak boards mostly 3 1/2 foot long: I ran calculations and found that If I went with my desired drawer depth of 14” I will not have enough material...

My First Router Table #4: Drawers and a Top

07-25-2011 03:09 AM by Dave | 1 comment »

For me, this is a fun part of the project because it’s when things really start to come together. I didn’t get any photos when I built the top but I basically glued together two sheets of MDF and added some laminate countertop from that big orange box store down the street. I trimmed it with red oak, chamfered the sharp edges, and stained it with a combination of TransTint Dye and General Finishes Candlelight. The only unusual part about the top was an idea I had for mounti...

Kitchen Reno #1: Bringing you up to speed

02-02-2011 05:02 AM by jonww | 1 comment »

This blog starts half way through my journey. The story goes like this… I took the plunge and offered to take on renovating my in-laws’ 42 year old kitchen last spring. I say ‘starting’ last summer because I am now, as of Feb 2011, in the middle of what appears to be a 12-16 month project. The good news is that my wife’s folks are very flexible in allowing me to work at my own pace fitting nicely with the fact we have a busy life with kids, jobs, etc… ...

Beads Box #8: Drawers Construction

01-02-2011 04:14 AM by PurpLev | 7 comments »

Today I was able to resaw some 3/4” boards to make the 3/8” (slightly less) material for the drawers, cut the parts, and joinery, and put it all together for a dry fit. I had originally planned on having 9 individual drawers in the center compartment, but for lack of materials and time, I ended up making 3 large drawers and I’ll put dividers in those and see how it goes, for ease of use it might be better to make 3 smaller boxes for each drawer so that each one can be tak...

Jewlery Amoire #7: Drawer Assembly - Part 1

12-30-2010 02:41 AM by Zuki | 1 comment »

How is it that something so simple can cause so much grief? I had it all worked out in my head and everything was going fine until I made one stupid mistake . . . actually I made the same mistake 16 times. I was not happy when I discovered what I did . . . actually DW saw it first and I’m glad she did as I would have had to do a whole lot of deconstruction to fix the errors if she was not there to pick up on it. Watch the video. Its all fine now. :-)

Machinist Toolbox #7: Draw me a Draw

12-23-2010 12:54 AM 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...

Table Saw Outfeed and Blade Storage #2: Taking way to long to complete this simple project...

12-21-2010 07:31 PM by jusfine | 6 comments »

I finally got some time back in the shop. I calculated the size of the outfeed table, had a friend with a cold press laminate both sides of a sheet of MDF for me, I cut it roughly to size and set it aside to finish up the base cabinet. I lost some photos somewhere for the middle of this process, but once my blade storage shelves were sanded out, I turned some purpleheart center dowels on the lathe for the blades to sit on. I made two sizes, one for the 10” blades, and one for the...

French Fry Friday #3: Oak End Table

11-26-2010 02:55 PM by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

Just a reminder French Fri Friday is when I showcase some of the smaller things that often get overlooked. End tables are something that can be sold as in a pair or will even work by itself. One thing that I have learned is that to make one more versatile it is best to design and finish it where it can be view for all sides. With the need for surfaces in the middle if the room, next to a mid-room sofa, most unfinished end table will not work easily. A little planning ahead and a little mo...
