Check out my latest effort CHECK IT OUT http://youtu.be/A3obh9cB_NM
I started this project for a friend a few months ago and will be putting the finishing touches on soon. It is a plywood box with pine face frame. I used my Kreg Jig for all the joints. This is the largest project I have tackled to date and has been a great learning experience. The plan has changed from the original drawings as we learned along the way. My wife might be a little upset that I have spent at least four times the cost of materials in new tools (and then some). I tell her it is an ...
As part of our kitchen remodel I’m taking on building the cabinets. We are modeling these off of a set at a local big box store. Here’s some pics just after I attached the face frames. They are ready for a finish and then install. Sorry about the picture quality. I was using my ipod. Should have better pics as I get them over to the house. I’ve yet to build a 18” cabinet because it will be my “wild card” cabinet. A section of these cabin...
Today I went ahead and got the boards for the top and sides all cut up. The sides are nice and straight. And we are gluing up the boards. I do them one board at a time. this way I have a better control over the alignment of the boards and I have to do less planing and or sanding later. Below is an other picture with the designing of the dresser. I used a FWW magazine to get some inspiration on how the build the “guts” of a dresser. I need to see this coming together still. ...
I read an article somewhere that said “if you’re a beginner you shouldn’t try to make your own shutters, it is a very difficult work that should be left to professionals” ... as stubborn as Iam, it looked like the right project to tackle on my learning travel … So, here I am so far, It is make of Pine ($$$ cost effective), and I’m using oil+wax as a finish, by request from my wife that saw me once trying it on a piece of scrap wood to see how it looked. ...
I have one of the best wives on the planet.
My wife was off this weekend so I didn’t spend to much time in the shop and I really didn’t have a game plan on what and how I wanted to make the table. I know in the future I want to install the Kreg Flip stops on my miter station so I decided to get the same T-track for the drill press table, that way the stops work through out my shop. I also plan to use the same T-Tracks on my super sled I plan to build in the near future. I’ll finish it up tomorrow/this week, I need ...
This week I go in and explore the Kreg Jig Jr. I think this ended up being kind of an instructional video as well. I hope you all enjoy it. Also please let me know what you guys think about these. This is the 5th video review I’ve done. How do you lumberjockers like these? Anything need to be changed?
One of the things that I like about my job is that I get to do a little bit of everything; it lets me be the “jack of all trades” that I so like to be. Recently the bathroom sink in our employee area fell off of the wall after being stuck to it for almost 30 years. It was decided to do a little bit of a redesign, since most people were not overly thrilled with the small sink we had anyway. I had some help in assembly from one of my new employees who is getting more interested in the wood work...
I thought someone might like to see how I attached a Kreg Precision Fence to my Rikon 14” Deluxe Bandsaw. The Kreg fence rail bolts to the infeed edge of the table. Unfortuantely, on the Rikon the slot for changing the blade comes out to the infeed edge of the table and is blocked by the Kreg fence rail. Rather than attach the rail directly to the table, I attached it to a length of 1-1/2” x 1/8” extruded aluminum angle. The extruded aluminum is then attached to the...
