In my last video I showed you all the renovation of the old shop space, during that renovation, I made some recess cavities in one wall of the shop. In this video I walk you through the steps of making the recess shelf unit to go into those cavities. These recess shelves are not just for the shop, they can be used in the home as well! Add some glass shelves and you have a nice knick-knack display shelf, or use them around the home for any organizing needs.
The first step in carving out the table legs I began with the side scrolls and front flutes at the bottom of the leg. Before I start carving I always hone or sharpen any knife I will be using that have any small chips in the edge. This will give you a nice clean smooth cut when carving. For the table legs I used Genuine Mahogany it is a great carving wood and I think it has a cleaner cut than basswood because of it’s tight grain. To layout the legs I made a drawing template out of a ...
26. I re-rounded some of them to fix the flatness. 27. I began cutting dovetails and half-blind dove tails by hand for the drawers. 28. I fitted them and sanded them flush. 29. I cut the bottom and back for the drawers with my table saw, cutting the panels and slots, and fine cut them with the shooting board. 30. Using my drill press I cut the circles for my drawer pulls and screwed them in. 31. I routed all along the inside of my box to fit the panels. 32. I planed everythi...
A while back I posted my first turning project, a carving mallet, in the hopes of securing tips on how to avoid skew catches. ( http://lumberjocks.com/projects/69970 ) Today I learned a new fact about mallets, as I’m sure Confucius would say: “It is a wise man who chooses to never make his carving mallet from African Mahogany” ....... see the enclosed photo …..

Dear Me, I have spent much of the day completing the 3D model of the dresser. I have used similar construction found in the curio cabinet we have that is amish made. I had originally intended that the dresser have 3 false drawers across the top and I found it did not look right. 4 false drawers look much better. Here is the link to the sketch up model.SketchUp 8 Next on the list of to do’s is to make a cut list. Then I can go about sourcing the wood. Weth.
Daniel came back for another visit and said “yeah, it sounds really off at the 12th fret”. With visions of “oh, crap, we have to mill off that fret and move it” we started playing with things, and discovered that the bridge was in the wrong place. The bridge had individually adjustable string positions, so we moved them, and got a sound that was okay, but the bridge was also really too high. So I chucked it up in the milling machine, milled it down a bit, then t...
