Wonderful Things #2: Sort of a Chest with Slideout Draw Trays

04-22-2014 02:12 PM by brucethecontrarian | 1 comment »

She Who Must be Obeyed spake thus; Seek ye out the land of Ebay and secure these 40 vintage wooden trays that have been made known to me and bring them hence. Thereafter shall ye build a cabinet such that it will hold all my supplies of craft that I might practice on them. And ye shall make it so it fits in a specific place and is neither too large nor too small. As She had spoken, so was She obeyed. The draws came from an old police station in the town of Preston (Watling Street...

A secret dovetail?

04-04-2014 12:08 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

been trying my hand at a few of those “Full Blind Dovetails” aka miter, or secret dovetails. From the outside, they look like a regular mitered joint. But, open the joint up, and a few dovetails appear. Anyway, did a little research, watch a bit of Roy Underhill, and made a sketch or two. Down in the Dungeon Shop, I had a few cut-offs of walnut 1×4s. Not very long ones, but something to putter around on. A bit of plane work to get them all about the same w...

I make a wall shelf for my sons room out of pieces from an old bunk bed. Fun project and satisfying to re use material. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=byAL3nPUvFQ&list=UUoiFVDvzJX8tXXF5GsUPc_Q&feature=share

Step-back Cupboard Build #1: Lumber prep

06-09-2009 06:04 AM by rwyoung | 0 comments »

I decided I need a nice place to keep some china what-not that has started to accumulate around here. My parents keep dropping off stuff that they have stored at their house, now it is getting stored in mine… After much looking around and cogitation on the matter, I decided the first thing to make would be a cupboard, specifically a step-back cupboard. These are open on the top, and a closed cupboard on the bottom. Sometimes two pieces, other times one. Later I’ll look into...

Projects #10: Making a new set of adirondack chairs

05-13-2013 02:18 AM by NedB | 9 comments »

My wife hinted strongly the other day that a new set of adirondack chairs would be a nice addition to the back yard. Wood has a set of pretty easy plans in their most recent issue, so I picked up some 5/4 PT pine and have spent the weekend cutting all of the parts to size and then rounding over all of the parts that will get handled. In this case, that’s a pretty significant pile of pine, about 50-60 parts for the pair of chairs. I Might have enough wood for another chair, but honestly...

I'm still here

04-06-2012 01:25 AM by T. D. Reid | 3 comments »

I haven’t fallen of the face of the earth but I am behind on the Queen Size bed build. It has become a money pit because of a 5/8” mortising bit that I didn’t own. Then I realized that the throat on the mortising machine is on 6” and the bottom rail is 8” so I ordered a 5/8” mortising chisel. While waiting for it to get here I dry fit the head board and low and behold a queen size bed is more than 6’ wide and by the way that was the longest length of pipe clamp that I owned. So then I shell o...

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...

Roubo Cabinet #4: Resurfacing Material

05-02-2011 09:59 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 4 comments »

With plan and materials in hand it’s time to build panels that will become the Roubo Cabinet (with pictures!) Not for the faint at heart, this entry contains extensive hand plane use that many would consider exhausting and (essentially) pointless in the modern workshop. I, of course, see things differently. Up to this point, I’d not had a project that required solid wood panels that had to be joined / assembled to this extent. So ‘gluing up panels’ had meant rail and style stuff, not what ...

Dart Board Cabinet #1: Every project is an opportunity to learn

01-13-2012 05:23 AM by Willeh | 1 comment »

The wife and I have recently gotten into playing darts as a hobby. We’ve been playing in our basement on an old dart board that I inherited from my dad housed in a ratty cabinet that looks aweful. Im currently in a lul for projects as it is now cold outside and my garage/workshop is unheated and uninsulated and its too cold to work in at this time of year most of the time as any project of size requires having the garage door open to wheel out the table saw to have enough room to wor...
