Building a wall hanging tool cabinet #6: #6

10-29-2014 04:48 AM by exelectrician | 5 comments »

Got another coat of Deft on and reorganized the interior tool placement Opening the interior panel reveals my mostly metalworking tools, a thin strip jig for the T/Saw, ancient bit brace, etc., With the panel closed which I think I will be using most. I hope to have my every day tools close at hand, I still have about a square foot and a half of space to allocate to about 16 more tools I use all the time. The detail of my modified marking gauge, this puppy won’t roll off my be...

Ultimate China Cabinet #1: The Start

10-27-2014 02:08 PM by bkseitz | 0 comments »

Beginning of this year my wife asked if I would build her a cabinet for her china and dish collection. I think she was channeling Martha Stewart as she has several sets of 16 place settings (i.e., needed to build a super-sized china cabinet). The original objective was to have flush mounted doors with push open doors. Below is the carcass building sequence. The project uses 3/4 birch plywood and 1×4 boards with adjustable feet for the base. I used my assembly table to cut and as...

Clamp Cart #1: Quick Frameup

10-27-2014 02:58 AM by bkseitz | 1 comment »

I keep hearing you can never have too many clamps. I expect that’s because I always misplace these or are left in a pile to be sorted out. I was watching several videos on YouTube on clamp storage. Steve Ramsey redid his storage putting clamp racks behind a door. No such luck in my shop. Someone had made the “ultimate” clamp and wood storage cart, however, a 30” x 96” cart is out of the question also. However, several of the ideas from that build and a ...

Building a wall hanging tool cabinet #5: Tool cabinet #5:

10-19-2014 02:55 AM by exelectrician | 9 comments »

Put on two coats of Deft semigloss, then made drawer pulls and door handles from recycled ebony piano keys, added an interior baltic birch panel and the most important thing, I got it mounted on the wall. The moulded edge was masked off and two coats of stain applied prior to gluing the door frame, now that the surrounding parts are finished, the color difference is hardly noticeable, my experiment worked kinda, oh well…Still have a load of decisions to make to figure out which t...

NOT your average Screen Door: Assembly time

10-17-2014 06:40 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

FINALLY! First, needed some rebates for the screen’s frame to sit in. Don’t have a wide enough bit for the router, BUT, I do happen to have a couple planes that seem to work nicely This one is a Traditional Chinese Edge Plane I build awhile ago. Set the fence for 1/2” and push it along until it is almost all the way down to …3/16” deep. Then go over it with an Iron plane, since it does have a depth stop Hmmm, Noodles, anyone? Ok, rebates all lo...

Loose Tenon Jig

10-14-2014 08:37 PM by Mauricio | 9 comments »

I recently made a stone top table with Mortise and Tenon Joinery. I was thinking of making more of these tables, also ~3×3” legs with 1.5” thick aprons would make some pretty sweet work tables out of construction grade pine. Normally I would simply use a router and edge guide to make the mortise, then cut the tenons with a combination of hand tools (to cut shoulders) and bandsaw for the cheeks, then cleaned up with a router plane. However since I want to make multiple tables I figu...

NOT your average screen door: Raised Panel work

10-14-2014 06:56 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Ok, last episode, I was getting a center stile made. Well, after measuring three times, the dang thing still was short. Yanked it out of the door frame, used it to mark another board. THIS time, I held the new blank to it’s new home, and marked things out, and cut leaving the lines. I needed to cut a groove on both edges of the now center stile. Clamped it into the bench vise, and gave this old boy a work out First a little hammer work to center the cutter. Might have had ...

NOT your average screen door#2

10-09-2014 06:30 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Well, after much cussing and fighting, got all the rails fitted to their mortises. This being the last on this side of the door. Wound up making it an open ended affair. The lock rail took the longest, and I think I traced it’s ancestry back about ten generations… Ok, when I go to assemble the door for the final time, I will install a few wedges into each tenon, then pin the joint with a couple of dowel pins. Managed to measure for the center stile, and get the measu...

Furniture Making Tutorials #7: Attaching Face Frames

10-09-2014 12:23 AM by BigRedKnothead | 20 comments »

I’ve tried all sorts of methods fro attaching face frames to furniture and cabinetry. In this little blog I will list the various methods I know of, along with my 2 cents on each method. Most of these example show a plywood case, but the principle is the same when working with a solid case. Disclaimer- I realize pictures are helpful, and I don’t have picture for every method…...so many are borrowed from the interwebz. I’ll be sure to pass on some of my royalties to ...

NOT your average Screen Door?

10-08-2014 04:24 PM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

Back door has a nasty looking, white, metal screen door. Seen way better days. Have been told by the BOSS to make a new screen door. Trip to Menards, picked out a few 1×4 x8’ Pine boards (3) a couple 1×6s and a couple 1×8s. Maybe $26+tax? Got things down into the Dungeon Shop to lay stuff out Hmm, might get a little bit crowded down here. Laid out the parts to locate a few joints And somehow managed to open the tool chests, to drag out a few tools ...
