Project SC #4: Its like that and thats the way it is

08-12-2010 05:10 PM by BritBoxmaker | 31 comments »

So 1st fallback reached yesterday. I have to border the pattern. For the pattern glue-ups I used a traditional glue, PVA. This is good for this purpose but if I had mitred all edges (and the top) the tiny 1mm squares at each corner might not have held on at all. Worse still is the possibility that they would chip off over time. So bordered it is. Using 7mm strips of Purpleheart I set out the patterns to give me an overall idea of what it would look like. I then labelled everything s...

Desk Build #1: Layout & Milling Materials

08-05-2010 02:14 PM by Huckleberry | 3 comments »

I know this is a little out of order but I needed to get started on these desks ahead of the garbage can containers. What is great about these desks is that we will be using different kinds of joinery. We’ll be laminating the legs, pocket hole joinery for the aprons and top. Plus there will be some edge banding happening too. You will also see how I build my drawer boxes and the material that I use for this in future episodes. Don’t forget to sign up for Huck’s (hucksdi...

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...

Joinery #2: Don't get your drawers in a twist

07-21-2010 03:56 AM by Rob Bois | 3 comments »

I have done videos in the past about how I handle hand cut dovetails for drawers, so for this current project I decided it didn’t make much sense to just highlight the same techniques. Instead, I focused on several challenges I faced with this most recent set of drawers, ranging from some tricky grain to sharpening fatigue. This won’t teach you how to build a drawer, but you might find a few tips you can apply in your shop.

Just for Fun... #25: The Trays Begin...

07-14-2010 09:35 PM by littlecope | 11 comments »

In the last episode it was decided that, because this Box is a little bigger than usual, I’d be making some trays for it. I guess I’m still anxious to use the new toy, because I sized the wood I’ll be using last… first!!After Re-sawing another scrap of the Cherry, I thinned it down on the Jointer to about 3/16”. These will be for the bottoms of the two trays…With the Imbuia top, and Cherry sides on the outer Box, I’m going with Imbuia sides and Cherry...

Joinery #1: I've got a haunch about these tenons.....

07-12-2010 03:38 PM by Rob Bois | 12 comments »

This is a recent blog post I did covering the haunched tenons for the cabinet doors for a six-leg sideboard I am building. This is actually episode 9 of probably about a dozen, but this one stands well on its own since it covers a common joint for basic but strong cabinet doors. I have traditionally used cope and stick joinery for most of my cabinet doors, but this particular design does not call for any molding detail on the insides of the rails and stiles, so I figured I might as well use...
