Building a Murphy Bed

461 days ago by WoodJediNTraining | 1 comment »

This week’s Project is a horizontal Murphy Bed. The bed I built is a twin size bed using the Create-A-Bed Hardware kit from Rockler Woodworking and Supply. The finished look of the bed can be trimmed and finished to match your homes decor, really the limit on the final look is only limited by your imagination. These videos just tell you about the use of the hardware kit and the general construction of the project. I hope you enjoy it.

From a 200 year old ruin to a workshop, a 3 year journey... #7: Finally some wood....

469 days ago by Serradura | 6 comments »

I don’t know what the bigger job was, making the wooden wall for the second floor, or getting the timber up to the building sight. Our street was made hundreds of years ago when the only way of transport was a donkey or in the case of being rich and noble, a horse. Even though the Templar Knights were thinking big, they never could have imagined huge trucks, cranes and bulldozers. I had to go and pick up the wood myself at my supplier and it took 4 rides with my (Iveco) van to get from ...

Workbench Build #24: Getting Ready To Cut Some Dovetails..

473 days ago by Airframer | 12 comments »

Ok, so I got a little distracted with getting my hand plane assortment ready for work. I still have a couple more to go and another on the way but as it sits now I have a fully functional selection of old Stanleys that should get me wherever I need to go with them. Now as I sit here preparing to cut my first ever dovetails (seriously have never done this before) I need to get my saws in order. I have been putting off sharpening these for a while now and it is time I gave them some a...

Construction Steps for Kevin Rodel Arts and Craft Chairs #1: Crest Rail Construction

477 days ago by kbiniowa | 2 comments »

Quartersawn oak blanks are cut to 14” long and 1 5/8” thick. The upper crest rails are 3” wide and the lower rails are 2 ½” wide. I chose to construct the chair with floating tenons so that I could mill and cut all of the rails to the exact same length. A bench-top mortising machine is used to make the mortises for the upper and lower crest rails. The 3/8” chisel is set exactly parallel to the machine’s fence, then an auxiliary fence is installed and shimmed to the proper angle required. Sto...

From log to box in less than a month #1: The kickoff

481 days ago by sras | 12 comments »

A friend at my church made me an offer: ”I’ll give you some wood if you’ll build something with it for the youth auction at the church” He made the offer several weeks ago, but I didn’t get around to picking up the wood until last Sunday! That gives me just under 4 weeks to take the wood, figure out a project, build it and finish it. That should be plenty of time, but my projects typically take months or years ! After pondering my choices, I picked these...

Miter Saw / Multi Use Station #3: Tying the Cabinets together

491 days ago by izod | 3 comments »

A few weeks have passed since i initially glued up the counter tops. Now it was time to start building the base and tying the cabinets together. My dad offered to come over for a day and help with anything i needed and i couldn’t say no to that! We planed and ripped all the boards to give it a new fresh edge and dress things up a little. First we attached a cleat to each side of the cabinet and used some lag bolts for a secure hold.We initially thought about using plywood to tether ...

Miter Saw / Multi Use Station #2: Table Top

491 days ago by izod | 0 comments »

The weekend of the 16th my dad and uncle came through as we all were heading up to the Twin Cities to hang out with my brother for weekend and take on a Timber wolves game. The timing was pretty much perfect and I had them help me glue up the 3/4” industrial grade particle board. The counter top on the left was glued up at 8’ and the right side was 4’ long, both 30.5” wide . I didn’t use any clamps, just screws about every foot along the sides and then down th...

Stanley Miter Box Restoration #2: Rust be Gone

491 days ago by ToddMKS | 1 comment »

I have taken the handle off the saw, hit it with a wire brush to remove any loose rust, and coated it with Navel Jelly. This is the first time I have used it and I have to say I like it alot. I have to give the saw one more coat to remove any stubborn rust left. Then I will start wet sanding it. Thanks for looking and please leave a comment with any advice you my have since this is my first saw rehab. Thanks again.
