Well have I got a great little weekend project for you. This Oak Knickknack cabinet can be wall hung, sit on a tabletop or shelf and is great for displaying those favorite trinkets you collect. This 2 part series will show you how to build one of these cabinets for yourself. Sketch up plans for this project will be available at the end of this series. So stay tuned for that. This cabinet features cove and bead moldings, Face frame with inset door, both which are assembled with open slo...
I live in central Florida and the garage can be unbearable in the summer to work in. Especially if your garage takes the afternoon sun and is not insulated as many of the garages are in my area. I decided to stud the exterior wall and insulate it while also adding some much needed electrical recepticles. I added a 20 amp breaker and some benchtop level outlets and one below the bench that will house my shopvac. I will be putting up sheetrock and painting it gloss white for better l...
How to build a Desk Top Easel Recently I built a desk top art easel for my mother for Christmas, She requested one from Santa, but since he is busy making toys for all the boys and girls, the task was up to me. This Easel is a great gift for the artist in your life. A fun build and a beautiful piece. The easel is made of Walnut and Oak it features two trays which can hold all of your paint supplies, as well as a paint pallet made from birch. The brass hardware and Oak Splines really set...
Hi everyone. I first off want to say I am sorry it took so long to get back here. Between Facebook, Google plus and Youtube and my website http://www.asimpledesignofocala.com . I never made it back here to update this series. Well the Hickory Chest build went very well. It ended up being an eight video series from start to finish. The Hickory Chest featured Raised Panel construction and the chest was lined with cedar. This project started when a client asked me to build a blanket chest for...
After letting the lumber acclimate for a couple of weeks, I rough cut all the pieces, leaving them all slightly oversized so I can cut, joint and plane them down to final dimensions along the way. I have a 12” miter saw, but it is not a slider. Therefore, I’m not able to cross cut 12” wide dimensional lumber on it. So I made a basic little cross cut sled to make all the cross cuts on my table saw. Since the top of the bench is the most important – functionall...
I just finished setting up a cool new Miter Saw Bench in my new shop. The bench is about 90% complete. I still need to make a few drawers for it but other than that it’s finished. The bench is set up for my Bosch Glide Saw. I’ve built two adjustable fences to either side of the saw using the Kreg Precision Trak & Stop System. I also installed some T-Track in the tops so I can adjust the fences from front to back. The saw can be moved front to back as well when I nee...
Hi people, as promised I’ll show you the recovery that I did with this old miter saw “Compa 250 Export”. It’s a beautiful tool, entirely of cast-iron, and since over the years has been used by professional carpenters (2 generations) is still highly accurate!The work, although it was the first time I competed in a similar work was hard but fun, thanks to friends of “il-truciolo.it”. Special thanks must go to my great friends Franco (woodhobby58), Aldo (om-ald...
The build of the virtual pinball machine is coming right around. The lower part of the machine is mostly done with the exception of some button and ventilation holes will need to be added. Here are some pictures of the assembly… The hardest part of this cabinet for me was the miter cuts where the sides meet the front. I did it this way for aesthetic purposes since the cabinet would have no trim I don’t want to see the plywood edges. Here is a picture of the final...
So this is my mitre bench that I’m working on. I decided to mount my Bosch 10” sliding compound mitre saw because I believe it is the most accurate. I still have to finish building and installing the drawers, as well as all the doors and drawer fronts. I’m excited to be working on this finally, part of a bigger process of creating my wood shop in my new space. I will try and keep up to date photos of my progress, and maybe even a video walkthrough once it’s complet...
