Kitchen Utensil Holder

02-16-2014 05:14 PM by lew | 17 comments »

Some time back, I made a small, box shaped holder for some of Mimi’s kitchen utensils. Everyone has a few things that won’t fit into the drawer or hang on the wall. Over time, it apparently shrunk- I guess the wood dried out- because nothing seemed to fit. I wanted to try doing another segmented turning, so this project was born. Cap’n Eddie has a video on making a dedicated jig for cutting segments. Using his ideas and borrowing a few from Frank Howarth’s miter ...

Walnut kitchen countertop #5: glue-ups trimmed

02-05-2014 04:02 AM by harum | 0 comments »

The glue-ups were trimmed a bit to fit the space above the base cabinets. The walls around the cabs don’t meet at right angles though, so the right glue-up had to be cut accordingly. What is left before finishing is sanding with an ROS, grits 100 through 400. I also want to treat the edge with either a 1/8” round over, or a 1/8” bevel bits. Have to try on a scrap piece first to see which works better. Have yet to find one joint connector to bridge the left and r...

When a woodworker wants to make applesauce...

10-20-2013 05:20 PM by CueballRosendaul | 7 comments »

My neighbor had an apple tree loaded with fruit so I decided to make applesauce and can it for the winter. Since I don’t have one of those crank apple peelers, I decided to make my own power peeler with the drill and a spade bit. I clamped the cordless drill down to the counter, and used a spade bit to hold the apples. I went through this full bag of apples in about 45 minutes. Watch the YouTube Video!

Work #1: Starting a kitchen

09-18-2013 04:26 AM by ElliottH | 1 comment »

So this is the kind of work we do most of the time. This kitchen isn’t going very fast because my boss keeps pulling me off the site to go do something else. He seems to think that more gets done if a bunch of jobs are started all over town instead of concentrating on one at a time. You may hear me complain a lot about this. This kitchen is in a building he owns and there are two more being prepared at the shop. I can’t say that I really like these kitchens, but I felt like w...

Cabinet for the dogs #1: The Plan

08-15-2013 02:17 PM by Ampeater | 3 comments »

My daughter asked me to recommend the best way to make a cabinet to enclose the two dog crates that she uses for her small dogs (a white West Highland Terrier and a Scotty). She found this on the net. Her dogs are small and she doesn’t have room for something this large, so I used Sketchup and came up with this design. It is 58” Wide, 24” Deep, and 32” High. I bought some cabinet grade oak plywood and I will use white oak for the face frame and the drawer...

Butchers block kitchen island

05-01-2013 05:55 PM by inchanga | 2 comments »

I recently got a 6 foot length of sycamore which I cut in half in order to make a chopping block/table 3 foot by 2foot. Even after cutting in half the boards were so badly twisted that I had to split them length ways in order to flatten and plane them without removing too much material . The picture above shows the boards sawn ready for jointing and planing. I first of all flattened one face on the jointer and then put them through the thicknesser to achieve a consistent t...

Bagel - Bread Slicer

Here was an easy project that I did recently; a Bagel – Bread Slicer. You only need one board for this project and it’s something you can build in an afternoon. Here is my attempt at making a video of how I made it, and as always you can check out my website at: www.woodlogger.com to see more projects and videos of what I’m doing in the shop.I also put up a listing of free project plans that you might find useful. It’s at: http://www.woodlogger.com/project_plans/  ...

Kitchen Table #1: The plans, day 1, and day 2

02-25-2013 08:08 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 2 comments »

Over the past week I’ve been building a much needed kitchen table. It is a country style table based off of Ana White’s plan. I have made a few modifications to it to suit my own personal preferences (and my wife’s). So far I have the full construction complete except for plugging any screw holes. Here is the most recent picture.You can catch up on the build by clicking these links.The PlansDay 1Day 2

Kitchen Cabinets #1: New Kitchen Cabinets, Part 1

01-21-2013 11:00 AM by HRLou | 4 comments »

I really started on our kitchen cabinet project today. Our kitchen is really small, and has very limited cabinet space. There’s an island between the kitchen and dining area that we want to put cabinets over to increase our storage space—there’s no pantry or suitable cupboard for food storage except above and to the left of the stove. We figure if we can put in a couple more cabinets, we can move where we store our dishes and free up space for food and other container s...
