Shaker Media Cabinet #1: Shaker Media Cabinet #1

09-02-2009 06:44 PM by skeeter | 4 comments »

My customer really liked the documenting of my last project on this site so I’m at it again. This is a really big ( for me) cabinet for dvds. It’s dimensions are 82 high and 50 wide. Glass doors on top and solid doors on bottom. Sliding dovetails while I love the look and the strength are a pain in the ass. Just my opinion. Enjoy.the model drawing

Design Concepts #1: Custom Stationary Tool Cabinet

11-19-2009 11:44 PM by Unskilled | 0 comments »

I was tempted for a long time to create a tool cabinet like I’ve seen in many books and magazines (Shopnotes’ ‘Heirloom Toolbox’ comes to mind), but wasn’t prepares for such a daunting task immediately since I am a new woodworker. I then decided that I really like my Snap-On knockoff tool cabinet, so I have considered an alternate design to hold a very specific set of tools. So specific in fact, that I plan on french-fitting every tool in every drawer aside fro...

Wine Rack Expedition #4: Result of Monotony

03-28-2009 06:34 AM by Demowen | 5 comments »

Well folks, 160 dowel holes later, I’m ready to call it quits. I don’t mind hard work, but repetition drives me crazy! Here is a snapshot of some of those dowel holes…Now, notice the markings on the end grain. This is important to me so that I don’t keep having to second guess myself when I am putting things together. I have those pieces marked ‘L’ or ‘R’ for left or right and numbered from top to bottom. I mark all the pieces on the right ...

Exercises in Artisanship #23: Rustic Renaissance Trestle Table: Part 6 THE FINAL

08-14-2012 07:28 PM by jjw5858 | 4 comments »

This table is special I suppose because it is my first. My shop being set in all natural conditions sure made this a spread out project, there were some truly brutal hot and humid days that let this sit and wait for a better time to work with it. I wanted a piece that had touches of rustic warmth supported with lines of a Renaissance rhythm. To stand back and see the entire composition in it’s thought out form, from some ragged sketches to this on my living room floor is a nice reward for ...

Adirondack Chairs #1: Halfway into the White Oak version

09-17-2013 12:16 AM by Jacob C. Heffelfinger | 1 comment »

This is the first entry in this series, but I’m already halfway into the White Oak version of my Rockler Adirondack chair. I’m also building a Western Red Cedar version, but haven’t started dimensioning the boards yet. I’m starting the blog at this point in the project, because 1. I wasn’t a member of LJ before starting the project and 2. I need to get my thoughts down about what I’ve learned so far, because this is really my first TRUE hardwood project...

10 Steps to Getting Started in Traditional Woodworking with Hand Tools #5: |Step 4| Learn how to Use Woodworking Hand Tools

04-15-2014 04:05 PM by WoodAndShop | 0 comments »

Step number 4 gets into actually using your new or old traditional woodworking hand tools to create something! But just like a bike a car, or a sword, these tools will work properly and get you where you want to go (e.g. building something beautiful) if you learn how to wield them properly. So check out these videos, and come back for more…I’ll be adding more and more videos over time; beginning with the fundamental tools and moving onto the specialty tools. 4.1 How to Use Hand Planes ...

Coffee Table Build #2: Panel Building

06-12-2014 10:47 PM by RoadHogg | 2 comments »

After glueing up the table top, I began making the frames for the sides. I cut four panels, and eight rails and stiles. I took the time to use my hollow chisel mortiser to mortise all the stiles and I made tenons on the rails with my tenoning jig. This went quite well and everything fit nicely. I decided to practise a haunched tenon on the rails although this part will never be seen, what better time to try something new! Two of the panels will be set into two of the frames but the oth...

Walnut Nightstand #1: Design and Milling the Wood

02-06-2015 09:37 PM by HappyHowie | 25 comments »

My daughter Jenny found a nightstand she liked on the web. She asked me if I could build one like it for her. Of course, I said yes. Then I began looking closer at its design. The challenge was with two design elements: (1) the lock miter joints for the case, and (2) the 45 degree angle for the legs. To address the first issue I would need to purchase a lock miter router bit and practice. I may need to build a tall router fence and jig to hold the vertical piece firmly against the fence....

Glue-up Blocks for Panels

09-28-2014 01:49 PM by Ken90712 | 10 comments »

I recieved a email from Woodpeckers tool sale for some Glue-up Panel Blocks. I thought thats a cool idea and a quick way to keep boards flat while gluing them up. While the price seemed fair, I have a close friend thats has a machine shop and we always like hanging out and working together. He has alot of materaial stocked up over the years as well. So this is what we came up with. Size is 7” x 3” x 1 1/2” Aluminum. We machined them on the Brigeport...
