Wood Art #3: What to do with old drawers...

01-11-2010 08:03 AM by Gary Fixler | 8 comments »

This is a few years old now, but I just found it last night, and thought it was clever and attractive in an eclectic way. The two-woman team of wis design shop flea markets for old, abandoned, and out-of-style drawers, then build custom melamine chests to fit them in a project they call Decades. More of their modern funiture here, with a project similar to Decades being Collect, but with newly created drawers.

Router Table #7: Drawers Under the Weather

01-04-2010 04:27 AM by PurpLev | 13 comments »

and I mean literally – we’ve had a snow storm here, and the garage is covered with more than a foot of snow. It was blazing outside and the high winds were blowing snow all over the place. my garage is unheated, but neither of those stopped me from making the most I could with an open window of time I got this weekend. I caved in, and ordered an Incra router plate for the top when they just posted the phenolic version on sale for $35 (they had a 10% off last week). I really ...

Shaker Night Stand #2: Wooden drawer guides - my first ? (for this project!)

12-16-2009 01:40 AM by NBeener | 3 comments »

Hey, All! Just back from the lumber yard. On Thursday, they’ll be delivering XX hundred and YY dollars (too painful to admit…..) worth of - African Mahogany hardwood,- African Mahogany plywood, and - Baltic Birch plywood (only one they didn’t have in AfMahog, but it’s drawer bottoms, so … I’ll live!). But … as I was poring over the plans again, I noticed that each night stand calls for three - what are called “wooden drawer guides...

Yesterday’s Daily Update mentioned I would get some work done in the shop. After I left for the Montessori bookcase job, I didn’t get back til about three hours til close.

I also want to get the Baseball loft ready to finish. I just check my schedule and I have 150 hours of projects ...

What’s happing in the shop for December 10, 2009 . Today I’ll be working mostly on a loft bed. This is a little different design then I normally do, so it may be slow going. The other two in the shop will be working on drawer units. For missed video and building pictures see my Current Projects link at or Watch us live:<div></div>

Fiberglass reinforced plastic

12-03-2009 03:41 PM by PASs | 6 comments »

O.K. I know I’m going to catch some flack on this on the LJ side. But I’m new to LJs and believe that if you limit your materials you limit your capabilities.I started playing with FRP sheeting a few years ago. You know, the stuff with the bubbly looking surface that you see in restrooms in the finer truck stops sometimes.This stuff is GREAT for some work. It’s almost indestructible, cuts well, and will just plain outlive most wood in really bad environments. I redid a laund...

A Little Trick I Never Would Have Known....

10-14-2009 04:26 AM by FunnelStudio | 7 comments »

So a year or so ago, I learned a little tip on an install at work. I’m not sure how known this is, but thought I would pass it along. We were installing a signage system for HSBC bank and had to paint an orange square behind everything. We taped the box off, and were told to put some matte white paint down first to prevent bleed-through at the edges. We brushed on some white at the tape line, then painted the orange, and had crisp, straight lines when we peeled off the tape. I rec...

Wooden Mechanics style tool box/chest

09-12-2009 09:15 AM by tooldad | 1 comment »

This is my next project, a wooden mechanic’s style tool chest and I will have a matching top to go with it. All in all I expect about 30 drawers. At least I bought enough of the handle material to do so. My plan is full extension drawer slides. 2 1/2” drawers except for the bottom 2 rows. The top chest will have a hinged lid with shock absorber supports. If I’m going to drop a grand on a nice toolbox, I might as well build it, is my thinking. My question for the mass...
