Bridal chest #1: Prep / glue-up

42 days ago by Craftsman on the lake | 5 comments »

My youngest daughter is getting married in September. I’ve decided long ago that i’d make each (I’ve got two) a bridal chest when that time came. Well it’s here and I’m doing it. I’ve made blanket chests before but they’ve been made with raised panels. This one is much simpler. Almost Shaker in nature for the design. It will have large finger or box joints at the corners. I think I’ll make a simple jig for my router to accomplish that. It will b...

Why I Buy Used Power Tools

51 days ago by TheWoodenOyster | 6 comments »

Why I Buy Used Power Tools Alright, below is my spiel on why I buy used tools. Just like the rest of my posts, I am not claiming this to be gospel truth, but this is my thought process when it comes to making large power tool purchases. Hopefully this won’t overlap with my craigslist blog too much, but I feel they are different topics and each deserve their own post. When I acquired a real shop (a garage) for the first time about 18 months ago, I happily set out to look at purchasing my...

A non-plywood 4 drawer filing cabinet #1: The design

122 days ago by GCM | 0 comments »

Here is my attempt to build an affordable wooden 4 drawer filing cabinet. I rule out: Plwood, as it is way too expensive in Australia for anything but the most expensive style of furniture.MDF, I built a single draw prototype and, even when using frame construction, it was way too heavy.Melamine, may be a good choice but for this project I don’t think it looks good enough.Solid wood, as it is too expensive. My current choice is to go with premium (knot free) pine and pine panel...

Boxland: Work Stations and Boxing Tips #12: Making Tea Box Dividers Of Venetian Blinds

126 days ago by Boxguy | 21 comments »

How do you install a grid work inside a tea box so it looks like this? Here is what the lift-out grill work looks like inside the tea box. This is what the lift-out grill work looks like outside of the box. The small compartment to the left makes a chain pocket so the stop chain doesn’t get tangled with the teabags... Why use Venetian blinds for lift-out dividers? By the time you plane, sand, and finish slats to make dividers inside boxes you have a lot of time and ...

Five years later, Workshop Remodel. Going from pretty to functional #12: Miter saw dust collection update

128 days ago by Craftsman on the lake | 1 comment »

After using the dust collection on my miter saw I feel I’ve finally found a method that will work to collect almost all the dust. The video below is of a working miter saw station. It’s portable and although not finished completely, everything on it us up and working. It also tells of a few other ideas of mine that are or are not needed in a miter saw station. Your mileage may vary. Backstory: I’ve had two stationary miter saw stations and one mobile. This is the second m...

Jewelry Case Build #1: Rough Cutting Parts

129 days ago by RoadHogg | 2 comments »

I decided to build, what I think is, a nice jewelry case for my Niece’s birthday this summer. The case is Walnut with Bird’s Eye Maple for drawers and accents. There are some secondary 1/8” panels that will be either Baltic Birch or hardboard. Plans are from an older issue of Wood magazine. Here’s what it should look like when complete: Yesterday I cut everything but the hardboard to rough size. Then I dadoed out 10 tiny rails and stiles for half lap ...
