Workshop in Progress #4: Garage cabinets are almost done

2209 days ago by jstewart | 1 comment »

I’ve almost finished the garage cabinets. My parents were in town last weekend to witness my daughter’s baptism. So, we took the opportunity to spend some time together in the garage. We were able to build the remaining three drawers in just a couple of hours. I decided to use pocket hole joinery for these drawers for two reasons. One: I just got a new Kreg Master System, so I wanted to give it a try. Two: I knew pocket hole joinery would be faster than setting up the dado...

Tramp Art Box

2235 days ago by dustynewt | 7 comments »

This box was made by an unknown craftsman untold years ago, my guess is the 1930’s. It is constructed of oak, pine and Spanish cedar cigar boxes (faded cigar box stamps still barely visible inside). It surfaced recently from a closet at my grandmother’s house. She is a spry 89 years old and still the powerhouse of the family. She said I always loved this box and should have it. When she first brought it out, it looked vaguely familiar. I held it and glimpses of my ch...

Corner Bookshelf

2287 days ago by Chips | 7 comments »

When I read about challenge 04 in Popular Woodworking Newsletter my first thought was to give it a try. The next thought was to design something that didn’t look like a box. Then I remembered that I had turned a square book case 45 degrees and put it into a corner. From there I took inspiration from other project I have built. A Corner Pantry Cabinet I built for my daughter and a reproduction of a 200 year old spice box that I built for my wife. When you add to that my enjoyment of carving...

The plan: Staple the heck out of it.Getting ready to assemble ten drawers. With the four sides together I applied a bead of glue along the bottom edge.You can see the alignment mark. The ply panel is glued and stapled flush to the drawer front. The finished “masterwork” Notice the copious plane shavi...

Shop Organization #9: Workbench Cabinet (Part 2)

2342 days ago by gizmodyne | 8 comments »

Drawer Parts Galore I started by squaring some panels to the width of the drawers. To save time I rabbeted the entire panel. Later I would rip them to create the sized drawer fronts. Testing the drawer front fit. You can see the drawer pieces in each cubby awaiting their fronts. The backs of the drawers are held by dadoes 1/2” in from the back of the drawer. I got to spend some quality time with the new crosscut sled.If you squint you can see that there is another 1/2”...

Little Tansu Inspired Case #3: Drawers

2346 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 ...

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

2349 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:

Craftsman - Stickley Projects #11: Back to the Chests after 2 Month Diversion

2462 days ago by Paul | 1 comment »

Gosh, time flies. Projects that I’ve outlined in other blogs piled up and I needed my space back to work on these chests. Didn’t get a whole heck of lot accomplished after the flea market and yard sales today. Purchased manufactured maple drawer guides. Made a mistake and left a 5/8” inset to the drawer bottoms and the guide was 3/4” high. Fortunately, I was able to take 1/16” off each half of the guide by running through my table top tickness planer to m...

My Bunk-bed project #3: Drawers

2473 days ago by woodshopbob | 2 comments »

Well all the drawers are done! They were very time consuming even though the pocket screws made this process a lot easier. Rather than use metal drawer slides ( WHICH ARE OUTRAGEOUS IN PRICE $13 SET ) I dadoed the sides to run on some hardwood runners using wood dowels as stops. There are a total of 8 drawers. And believe it or not every drawer ended up square each time I assembled one!
