Adjustable Height Rolling Outfeed Cabinet #1: Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

06-02-2011 08:53 AM by newTim | 3 comments »

But the past I am condemned to repeat is the creation of a new design that I have never done before, am not certain of the existence or availability of key materials and hardware, and possess the barest notion of what it is I want the thing to do. Welcome to my world. I knew I wanted a sturdy outfeed table atop a cabinet that would provide much needed storage in my small shop and would provide another work surface. If that were the extent of my desires I’d have whipped it out in n...

Mirror, Mirror #1: How do you frame an 8 sided mirror?

05-01-2010 02:37 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 3 comments »

How do you frame an 8 sided mirror? Beats me. This is my solution. The construction is a whole new way of thinking for me. Fingers crossed for success. My sister wanted a framed mirror for her kitchen wall. she had a large free hanging one but it fell and the mirror and frame shattered. Of course I can make one right? Hmm…. She wants it 8 sided. I want to bolt it to the wall, not hang it like a picture. Here’s my solution so far. After she had the mirror cut at the glass com...

a small writing desk start to finish #3: learning to cut half-blind dovetails and a wood gloat

04-01-2011 06:14 AM by drewnahant | 3 comments »

I started practicing through dovetails a couple weeks ago, since I had never even attempted hand cutting before, they are still a bit rough, but I realized that for this project I will need half blind dovetais, since with the curved front I will not be able to make a drawer box with a seperate face, and I really wouldnt want to do that for furniture anyway, it’s just what ive done in the past for cabinets. So tonight I cut my first practice set of half blind dovetails. here’s a ...

what to do with a walnut slab #2

11-23-2015 11:19 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Well had drywall to do for the weekend, kind of got behind on the Walnut Project. Last seen, I had a glue up going on… Jointed a pair of edges to book match them. Used a Jointer plane for that. A Stanley #7c works nicely. Got out a few clamps and the glue.. Two clamps under and a clamp over in-between. A piece of sandpaper was between the clamp and the glue. No stains that way. Let this sit a few days, until I could get back down there…. Removed the clamps toda...

Shop storage projects #16: Top is done....

01-27-2017 12:17 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

So, I am getting close to drawer building time? Ok, decided a 2 hour tour today would be about all this old body could handle….Started to build the frame for the top….had a few things to “finesse” first. One end of the long rail was a bit too thick…..marked out where to remove the excess wood….bandsaw to remove the worst and a plane to smooth things out. The mitre cuts were a bit off, re-did those, and made sure the rails matched each other. I f...

Unknown Wood / Unknown Project #1: What am I going to be?

06-03-2009 08:23 AM by scrappy | 3 comments »

Here is a piece of wood I received from Rastus I am trying to decide what it is going to become. Does anyone have any suggestions? Pieces are about 4 inches long and 3 wide at the widest. Re-Sawed to 1/8 inch thick for inlay. Here are the pics I took of it before and after I sliced it for inlay. Is it going to be Hearts? or maybe Angel Wings? Or could it end up as a Butterfly? Here is what it looks like with a litle Mineral Spirits wiped on it. I just love this w...

Patio / Deck Bench #1: Medicine cabinet on hold - Bench slips ahead

05-27-2010 05:38 AM by Blinky | 3 comments »

I set aside the me I decided to use some scraps of IpĂ© from the deck that was built a couple years ago to finally build that bench, to sit on top of said deck. Here is a sketchup snapshot of part of the design; And a few of work in progress. I cut the butt-swoop in the top of the ‘ribs’ on the bandsaw. I cut the dadoes in the rail to fit the seat supports w/a router, then drilled holes for walnut dowels.I tried use the best SS screws I had, but the 1st one snapped, and ...

Base cabinets, island and counter tops

08-03-2010 10:28 PM by SteveC | 3 comments »

Phase 1 of my new kitchen completed. This is another in the endless list of projects I’ve embarked on since starting my new home construction back in 2007 with the focus on providing all the labor, or as close to it as possible. The kitchen has been a long time coming, a lot of time spent in designing, drawing models and finally arriving at what I think I want;) Construction materials: Base cabinet boxes: V.C. Pre-lacquered 5/8” sheet stock.Door/Drawer faces: Curly sugar ma...

Wood on wheels

12-21-2010 03:16 PM by Ilija | 3 comments »

This is a bike I’m making for my daughter, it still lacks the finishing touches, like final paint coat, and the lacquer. The seat and the wheels we bought, everything else is water resistant plywood, screws and birch wood. The body of the bike can be flipped up side down to achieve greater seat height. Following more pictures…
