Jewelry Cabinet #2: Refined SketchUp model and main body pieces ready for clean up and glue.

1201 days ago by Devin | 5 comments »

It’s been a busy month in the shop.I finally refined my design to the point where I was happy with it. I’ve added a very gentle curve to the outside of the top piece as well as the two side pieces. For the bottom, I shortened the feet to 3/4” and shortened the lower drawer section 2 1/2” tall I’ve used sliding dovetails for all of the joinery for the main section. They will provide me peace of mind if the piece is hung on the wall. First time with slid...

ANYWAY, Picture time.I skipped the wood selection process in the photos. I was making this one for a friend and she picked the piece, marked the spot she wanted and then I took over...

Jewelry Cabinet #3: First Stage Glue up complete

1174 days ago by Devin | 1 comment »

Well…that took a lot longer than I expected. You’d think by now I’d remember that milling the lumber and cutting the joinery is only about the first 25% of the job. The bulk of the effort follows as you make the final adjustments, the final shaping, fine tune the details and then actually sand all the parts, glue up and sand again (and then repair the 6 dings/dents that somehow found their way onto my finished work, thank god for wet rags and irons). And I still have to p...
