This cabinet is made from leftover red oak, Luan, birch plywood and plexiglass that I had in my shop. It is approximately 17”T x 7 1/2”W x 6” deep. I would have liked to make it a little taller to handle a couple more shelves and slightly deeper to have been able to recess the back panel. The Box I first sent the oak through the joiner to ensure I had 1 flat square edge. I then cut the board to the proper widths on my table saw then to final lengths on the Miter...
I think all of us may think it is sometimes wise to stop typing and just do what are the things to do. I almost forgotten this series. But I do read still but did not bother to update. A recap on the second day of this boxes….Previous weekend I was travelling to the North that was Saturday… The cremation done last Monday and back to Manila. It was only Tuesday that I had faced the second day of this rush boxes.. On that day, I was able to sort out some wood and made the si...
I’m not much of a writer but wanted to share my experiences with my new found passion Diamond Willow. I don’t have many tools or resources but have the willingness to learn as i go from my mistakes and work with what i have. So with that said here we go. This is a work in progress.My first attempt at a foot stool The tenons are carved by hand. I just drilled the proper sized mortise in a piece of scrap and kept testing the fit and carve some more till i got the right dep...
Well, I’m back from the big box store – and have the screws I need to finish the table. I also picked up my MDF for the top and the bottom shelf. I’m using 3/4” MDF as I will be supporting a heavy planer (I don’t have it yet, but I am going to get a Dewalt 735). I scraped off the excess glue off the sides of the leg assemblies, then ran each side on my jointer with two passes on each side. This put me back to 3” x 3” legs (and my glue line was ...
There are many parts of this project I do not want to discuss, mostly because they all involve mistakes. With this project I unfortunately made many stupid errors regarding dimensions and process of operations, but in ways that are rudimentary to woodworking. I tried to recover and hide these though thinking about the saying that being a good woodworker is not about making no mistakes, its about how well you can fix the mistakes you make. One of these mistakes came from a lack of room in...
I want to thank all who responded to my inquiry about how to make tighter dovetail fittings. I got a lot of answers, but none that I expected. I am using a Rockler dovetail jig with the half blind template. The directions say to extend the bit to make it less sloppy, but that doesnl’t seem to be working. I am using 3/4 inch stock. Still perplexed.
Well, Good weather, good time to get finished up on some more. I mated the extension table to the saw top today. I used 3/8×4” lag screws on the mating edge itself. Added 3” deck screws through the angle iron and into the top. Very nice and flat with a good seam. OK, time to get the fence mocked up. I took the T part of the fence and threaded in some nylon set screws, these can be used to square the fence and make sure it is perpendicular also. I can see me ne...

After letting the lumber acclimate for a couple of weeks, I rough cut all the pieces, leaving them all slightly oversized so I can cut, joint and plane them down to final dimensions along the way. I have a 12” miter saw, but it is not a slider. Therefore, I’m not able to cross cut 12” wide dimensional lumber on it. So I made a basic little cross cut sled to make all the cross cuts on my table saw. Since the top of the bench is the most important – functionall...
