Cherry File Cabinet #1: Milling frame and joinery

12-19-2014 10:34 PM by JimYoung | 0 comments »

It’s been a while since my last woodworking project, so I’m easing back into the groove with a new file cabinet. I have a piece of junk tin cabinet in my home office that squeaks every time I open and close it. I did some serving trays in Cherry, and really liked working with it, so my new file cabinet will be Cherry. I found a photo online and liked the style so I sketched it up in Sketchup and AutoCAD. The legs are 1 3/4” x 1 3/4” and the rest of the frame is 1&...

Mission Style Pedestal Table #5: Applying finish and completing the build

06-10-2013 02:09 AM by Douglas | 6 comments »

After a few weeks away due to travel and rainy weather, I was finally able to finish the table. The formula I was following was similar to what I used on an earlier folding step stool water based Transtint dye, sprayed shellac, and then as this was a table, Arm-R-Seal oil & urethane topcoat. I started with the dye, first wetting everything to raise grain, and then light sanding with 220 to knock down the stander uppers. I then mixed the Transtint Mission Brown dye power with distiller...

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...

Small workbench based on shipbuilt's Short Block V8 (Workbench Challange) #1: Concept and leg assembly

02-06-2015 05:57 AM by brianb6603 | 3 comments »

ConceptI have been needing a proper workbench for a while. The top of my table saw and fold up extension have been the only spot to use. I would love to have a large proper workbench but my shop is just too small for a full size bench. I have been looking at benches in Lumberjocks and marking some for reference. shipwright had come up with some excellent ideas. His concept for the Short Block V8 is a low cost way for a beginner to get a strong, stable small workbench using tools that many b...

Wood movement and battens

06-16-2009 04:10 AM by CanalboatJim | 2 comments »

In a recent project posting a lumberjock had used battens to flatten a curling sign he had built. It brought to mind an experience I had using battens. When I retired from teaching, I got a part time job at a local wood shop. It was like I died and went to heaven. Using great power tools with wood that I didn’t have to pay for, who could want for more. One of the first things that struck me was the tremendous amount of scrap generated by the shop. I could not bring myself to toss wood...

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 ...

Native American Indian Flute with an Australian twist #5: Finished

08-27-2014 09:25 AM by icemanhank | 10 comments »

Hi everybody, I have finished the flute now and I am very happy with how it has turned out. I was quite concerned about getting the finger holes correct and had some help from Charlie Mato-Toyela who spent about 90’ on the phone from the USA to Australia to help me get the pitch and the tuning correct, Charlie is a indeed wonderful person. His Youtube page is Blue Bear Flutes which I would thoroughly recommend to anyone who is contemplating making one of these lovely instrument...

Time to build a medicine cabinet.

05-05-2010 12:37 AM by Blinky | 3 comments »

I’m hoping to get a medicine cabinet built in very near future. I have the design in my head. Bought an old medicine cabinet with a really nice etched mirror & beveled glass. Then found another one, bigger.Anyway, I’m thinking I’ll build the door around the mirror size, & the cabinet to fit the door size. It will be built flush against wall above sink, with simple moulding that matches the woodwork throughout the house. I wish I knew Sketchup better. It’...
