Kitchen Cabinets #3: Pantry shelves temporarily in place

10-16-2008 04:42 PM by Dan Lyke | 2 comments »

This should really probably go over at Home Refurbers, but I started this series here, so I’ll continue it. Amidst everything else, I got the pantry shelves (not really a pantry, but since that’s the function of these shelves, that’s what we’re calling them) finished. Still need to make the doors, but that can wait; at least we’ve got the huge unweildy particle board monstrosities that we bought from a store going out of business that were there temporarily out o...

Faery Mirrors Build #5: Glue up and finishing#1

02-18-2013 05:58 PM by Lumberpunk | 2 comments »

Getting close now, Glued up the frames. Loving the 90 degree clamp braces (or whatever you call them), don’t remember where I saw them but thanks to that person for the idea! Glueing the lap joints pretty basic. Drilled out the corners and plugged with purpleheart plugs, turned the dowels using the bandsaw method… pretty hard on your blade. Everything sanded to 320grit and then start applying the finish. Using 1/3 poly 1/3 mineral oil 1/3 boiled linseed oil (three...

A project in Maple #1: start ups

09-21-2017 01:02 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Still had a stack of Maple “scraps” sitting around, needed a project to use them up on…...maybe a small blanket chest? Let’s see… This is most of the wood supply….I also went and bought a 1×4 x 8’ Maple plank, as I might need a few pieces to cover ..oops items…. I had this glued up panel from Charles Neil….and there was a 5/4 slab in the stack.. It did have a crack that finally gave way. Not sure why it was stained, eith...

Workbench #1: The Feet

01-05-2009 08:40 AM by Rob Drown | 2 comments »

This project has been on the back burner since I had my accident in April of 2007. I was working on the feet at a woodworking class when I had the accident. It took some time for me to get back to woodworking and the workbench specifically. Today I went back to work on the feet and fixed the foot that was damaged just before my hand. Feels great. The feet look good too. I’ll post the design and pictures of the progress.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1405: Site (almost!) Updated

09-18-2014 11:48 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Yesterday turned out to be a crazy/busy day, with a few unexpected twists.  Those of you who read regularly know how much I love my three beautiful cats (Richard, Pancakes and Coco) and how much they are part of my everyday life. Like most pet owners, I consider them my 'fur babies' and they are wonderfully special to me.Lately though, Coco (my beautiful black long-haired girl) has been feeling under the weather. She has been vomiting more than usual (long haired cats in the autu...

Pin Hole Camera #1: Concept

03-15-2016 11:27 PM by Matt | 2 comments »

Among my hobbies, photography ranks high. Lately I’ve gone back to film, shooting B&W medium format. Then I got the bug for a large format camera with all the motions and selective focus. 5 years ago, one could find large format gear for next to nothing. But now… it’s becoming popular again. And the ebay prices are going up… I really didn’t want to spend $1000+, so I’ve decided to build my own. To start, I figured I would begin with a pin hole 4...

Building my version of the Essential Tool Chest #3: Carcase is done

03-02-2015 05:02 PM by johnstoneb | 2 comments »

Yesterday and a little bit this morning was spent jointing and fitting the front, back and drawer dividers. I now have a complete carcase. Drawer dividers in and fit. Front and back installed and fit. I need more practice on my mortises but they got better as things progressed. Should be fairly easy to cover the mistakes. On to the lid and drawers.

Cutting Boards #2: Jointers and Handplanes!

03-08-2012 03:25 AM by MolokMot | 2 comments »

Started the milling process on the cherry boards tonight. The biggest problem in my shop right now is that it is in the basement of the townhouse I rent. Living room is right up stairs and the noise / smell really carries. So I used my jointer to quickly flatten one face then I cleaned them up with my new handplanes which I tuned up this past weekend. This comming weekend I am really hoping get get enough time to finish the milling process on all the boards and begin ripping them down to t...
