02-18-2014 04:16 PM by Cindy Braunheim | 3 comments »

It’s now February and the project was installed and completed in November of 2013. I have since recovered and have five new projects lined up, one being my own Master Bedroom Closet, which has been waiting for three years now… But I digress.

Yesterday and today were relatively productive for the most part. I got the dovetails cut on the three drawers. I cut these with a PC 4200 series dovetail jig. The front is attached with halfblind dovetails.

"Wood" --by RusticWoodArt

10-28-2007 12:08 PM by frank | 3 comments »

Wood ....all that secernate from wood, can not in trueness of nature act as wood, nor can it be called in the interest of wood, and so once again i go and think upon wood…. —-if one were to dwell with wood, one might in turn know the cellular being of wood, where being true to mine own nature i am gathered for wood, spewing forth great commentaries on the inclinations of wood…. —-look me in the face and see wood, hear my words and know i speak for wood, shake ...

10-10-2011 05:29 PM by SPHinTampa | 3 comments »

At the end of the last blog, I had glued up the trim to the tail sections of the R/L pieces: I used my oscillating belt sander to sand the ends flush Flush ends give me a flat surface for the next step In my previous blog, I mentioned that you need a zero clearance insert to avoid having the bit pull the workpiece down.
