hanging the doors, and some revelations

06-15-2009 10:27 AM by Gary Fixler | 4 comments »

Here’s my most boring time-lapse yet – sanding up the cabinet doors to flush the rails and stiles, and prepare it for finishing. Speaking of… something I’d heard whispered around here a few times came to mind the other day while trying to get extremely gummy stickers off the maple I used in this project: mineral spirits. It says right on the can “for cleaning surfaces in preparation for painting.” I wiped some on, and just like goop-off, the sticker goo wip...

Inside Picture Framing #6: Hanging

12-03-2008 08:00 PM by kewald | 3 comments »

For best viewing, the center of the framed image should be approximately 63” above the floor. Any picture frame larger than 8” X 10” should be hung using two hooks. This reduces the torque on the frame and also prevents movement of the picture on the wall. If the wire on the frame is too tight to use two hooks then the frame should be re-wired. When wiring a frame, the wire should be long enough so that the angle between the wire attaching point and the nearest hooking position is app...

Simple Hanging Bookshelf

04-07-2008 07:18 AM by A_Train | 6 comments »

Well, here is my entry for the Bookcase Challenge. I actually completed this project a few weeks before reading about the competition, but thought this would be a great opportunity to learn SketchUp. My wife was looking for something that would allow her to have easy access to her reference materials while working at her desk. I came up with this simple bookcase. Simple Hanging Bookcase The overall dimensions of the bookcase are 30” wide by 25 1/8 “ high. The three shelves a...

Summer Joinery Entry Shaker Cabinet #4: Almost Done - Well really its done now,

07-28-2007 06:02 PM by Karson | 6 comments »

Almost Done> As I was reading the previous posted blogs on the construction of the Summer 2007 LumberJocks Joinery, I noticed that I failed to complete the posting of the latch for the cabinet door. Not only had I failed to post it, I had failed to install it. I wanted to use something like a clothes pin. The little loop that catches the wire for hanging clothes. I had created my wire simulation out of wood. This was installed in the end of a shelf board. The space behind the Holl...

Summer Joinery Entry Shaker Cabinet #1: How I got started

07-28-2007 04:03 AM by Karson | 6 comments »

After Martin announced the Summer Contest and the Themes Garden Project and Wood Joinery I started thinking about what I wanted to build. The contest rules state “Wood Joinery – Let’s get technical – but without glues, metal nails, screws or other mechanical fasteners! Yes, this is the “WOOD JOINERY” challenge for all you LumberJocks out there. Let’s see what you are made of – or rather what your woodworking project is made of. If you can build it wit...

Hanging Homemade Crown Molding: Suffering Through Mistakes & Learning Life's Lessons.

02-19-2007 06:29 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 11 comments »

I wanted to tell a little more about my experience with crafting my own crown molding, and share a couple of lessons I learned along the way. Previously, I showed how I formed and sanded the profile on the last blog of this topic, and so today I thought I would complete the task by showing the installation of the molding, and a few “gems” I discovered along the way. First off, I made very sure that my cabinet that I am hanging this crown molding on was as perfectly square on...

Crown Molding: Crafting Your Own Trim

02-10-2007 08:43 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 10 comments »

My wife is gone for a few hours this Saturday morning, and the kids are busy watching a video, so I will update you on what I am working on now. I’m right in the middle of a “fun” project. It is “fun” on many levels, mostly because I have had to stop and scratch my head a lot. For those of you with kids, or remember having kids, or know someone who has kids, Winnie the Pooh always says, “Think, think, think” while poking his temple when he is try...
