There’s a new post available on the Little Good Pieces blog – “Sauce Packet Bin – Part 2”. This is the completion of the kitchen organizer project started last week. Check it out! http://littlegoodpieces.wordpress.com/2010/10/10/sauce-packet-bin-part-2/
Here’s a simple shelf that I built and installed in about an hour one morning. I needed some additional space in the kitchen to store spices. I live and work in an old two story farm house and there just wasn’t a good place to store some things. So… I built this shelf from some black walnut in my cutoff bin. I make custom gunstocks so I end up with a lot of great looking wood that’s too short, too narrow, or has some other defect that won’t make a good looking g...
There are a lot of means to cut squared ravioli. Todays plastic and Teflon gadgets are worldwide cheaply widespread by Chinese industry. However I found this piece fun to make, and got good practice for future grating pieces. And yes, I put my helmet on to compete with the excellent pieces already submitted on the CS1 !!!!! WOWWell, at least we have a ticket for LJ T shirt. This is the final piece, to mark ravioli Measure 6×6 ”, and each square is 30mm Started with a p...
A new post was just published on the Little Good Pieces blog – “Sauce Packet Bin – Part 1”. This is the first installment of my solution to a vexing kitchen problem. Check it out! http://littlegoodpieces.wordpress.com/2010/09/29/sauce-packet-bin-part-1/
If you are thinking that this blog is a shameless attempt to snag some great prizes, you are correct. It is also a way to get some scraps out of hiding and back into circulation.It could also be a first project for a child. You can go high tech or low tech. Use what you have. I used a bandsaw, a file, a sanding block, and a workbench vise and f clamp to hold it. You can make these with less than that. Router tables, jigs, and power sanding equipment could put you in production on a larger ...
I finished the kitchen cabinets on schedule and my brother and sister-in-law came up this weekend and attacked the project with gusto… First the sheet rock came down, and then most of the wall studs came out. Then the carpet and the kitchen floor had to be cut back to the subfloor level so cabinets could sit down where they needed to be. Once the final dimensions were figured out, the end post to support the overhead beam went in place (the beam was pocket screwed i...
Still need to do the drawer fronts, but the doors are in! And they are kinda snazzy, if I do say so myself. Note, in particular, the grain matching.
New England is a corner of the United States rich with tradition. David Ellison, known on Etsy as lorimerantiques, and to many of his Providence, Rhode Island neighbors as The Lorimer Workshop, builds furniture steeped in such tradition. He is not only fascinated by the New England legacy, but also by how the simple styles of tables built by farmers have evolved in different regions. While his original enthusiasm for woodworking stemmed from restoring antique furniture as a hobby, David’...
It’s time to get organized. I moved to Vt in 2003, a lovely home with a great view and a huge garage/carriage house. The upstairs of the carriage house serves as my office and a guest BR. Downstairs is a big 2 car garage that will serve as my shop. Right now it is hopelessly crammed with too much stuff…some mine, some my ex’s, and is home to a solar heating project I’m working on. So, in order of priority, my tasks are: 1. Finish and store first solar pan...
Finally, I have an approved design to proceed. The ghost image in the foreground is where my island will be after I knock out the walls between the galley kitchen and the room next to it. The big gray thing on the right is my fridge (it will stay there). The square on the right hand wall is a window that I cannot move without LARGE expenses – so it’s going to stay. I added translucent glass to see what the arrangement will look like. The interior shelving is sized to ho...
