cabinetry #1: Custom table for boutique women's clothing store

02-18-2009 06:17 AM by JMB | 2 comments »

This is a quick commission I landed last week. The gal asked me to finish it asap so she can open up her new store. Cabinetry is one of those wonderful things which is really easy to do when you’re properly setup, and make a lot of money doing it. I’m not gouging her, but I’m definitely making my minimum hourly on this project. The design is simple enough. Divided storage areas for a reciept printer, wrapping paper, shopping bags, etc. The larger of the two lower left cub...

Hand Tools Cabinet #2: Chisels on the Left, Markings on the right

02-07-2009 06:05 AM by PurpLev | 14 comments »

Let me start by saying that the first part of this blog although posted earlier today, was actually made about a year ago, I just posted it today as a preceding part to the one you’re reading now… tried not to double post and ‘push’ other’s from the blog front page, so I waited half a day between 2 posts, although both were made ready at the same time. to continue the story were I left off, what I found most difficult with setting up the box was the box joints...

Boy's Cherry and Walnut Dresser #5: Drawers

09-06-2008 05:32 AM by Patrick Jaromin | 7 comments »

Labor Day weekend my wife took the kids up to the family cabin for a couple days. I spent most of this time in the shop working on the drawers. For this dresser I had designed the drawers with large through dovetails. Since I don’t own a decent dovetailing jig that allows for custom size and spacing, I was going to have to do these by hand. Since I haven’t done many projects with hand-cut visible dovetails, I figured I’d better take my time with these. To make things a bit f...

Workshop in Progress #4: Garage cabinets are almost done

07-07-2008 05:32 AM 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

06-11-2008 02:08 PM 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

04-20-2008 02:22 AM 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)

02-25-2008 05:01 PM 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

02-21-2008 11:14 AM 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

02-18-2008 04:10 AM 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:
