CC's Book Case #2: Swapped boards for plywood and saved a bunch of $$$

06-10-2013 12:39 AM by SquintyPolock | 2 comments »

I posted this question and received a ton of great LJ responses! This web site is really awesome for getting good advice. http://lumberjocks.com/topics/50382 So, Craigslist looks like a great source for lumber, but I lack a jointer and planer. Next best thing was to return all the 1×12s to HD and bought a sheet of 3/4” plywood. The total lumber cost dropped from $265 to $115, which is much more palatable. I set up a straight edge and my Skil-saw to rip the plywood into 11...

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.

Refinishing a Dining Room Table

10-17-2008 09:52 PM by Olaf Gradin | 2 comments »

Oddly, I have lived for the last couple of years or more without a dining room table. We have utilized a fold-out picnic table for the purpose of this necessity, though we rarely eat at home anyway (anyone want to have us over for dinner?). We used to have a dining room table. We bought an excellent bargain at an antique sale – it was an old-ish appearing oaken table about 6 feet long and 2 feet wide. It had some very heavy, solid members of 8/4 stock – presumably White Oak....

Toy Boeing Stearman Kaydet Bi-Plane #1: Initial Body Glue-up

10-11-2011 03:15 AM by RandyMorter | 2 comments »

I made a toy Boeing Stearman Kaydet Bi-Plane for one of my grandsons in early 2011. My other daughters said they wanted me to make one for each of my other 5 grandsons so in September 2011, once it started getting cool enough in my Phoenix, AZ area garage, I started on a batch of these toy planes. I’ve posted my SketchUp drawings for this project at: http://www.PoppaVein.com/Files/Woodworking/StearmanPlan.zip Note that the SketchUp design is not complete – I may update it...

Limbert Lamp Table - Stickley #240 #1: Templates

07-15-2009 03:43 AM by CaptainSkully | 2 comments »

So, between TreeFrogFurniture.BlogSpot.com and Robert Lang’s book “More Shop Drawings for Craftsman Furniture”, I decided that the corner of our dining room could stand an accent table. TreeFrog has built two different styles, so I “borrowed” the plans for the one I liked (he posted them online) and made my first template. I’m going to wait to make the interior template until I have the shell complete. The angles make things a bit messy. Like Tre...

Tugboat's workbench #1: Baby Steps! (...or, Can't Start Without Wood!)

07-01-2012 12:00 AM by Tugboat706 | 2 comments »

I am new to real woodworking, but I have been doing some reading on what a proper wood shop should have, and thing one always seems to be a workbench. Which I do NOT have. I found the LumberJocks forum while searching for ‘plywood toolbox’, but that led me to the forums, where a number of you have been great about offering advice and encouragement. One in particular (Danny) lives within a reasonable drive and has his own sawmill! So I made the 2:20 trek. This was a great ...

Cheap Table: The finale

02-04-2013 10:48 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

went to the Dungeon Shop today. Grabbed a drill and a drill bit. Each corner block got a slotted hole drilled through it. By slotted, I mean I drilled straight down through the block, then leaned the drill front and back to make the hole into a slot shape. Flipped the top over, cleaned the bottom of it up with a #3 handplane. Added a coat of BLO. Areas on the base that the top would cover up, got a coat of BLO. Then I flipped the base over, and placed onto the top. Each...

four station desk #2: more progress

07-08-2010 06:02 AM by 559dustdesigns | 2 comments »

The desks are now assembled and I started fabricating the drawer fronts and doors. After realizing I made the doors wrong and couldn’t use the concealed hinges that I wanted, I made another set.These pictures show some in progress shots of what I did to accommodate the hinges I have. The parts are marked and ready for drilling for the hinge cups. I used my General drill guide a lot on this project. Most of the drawer boxes are finished and I am now in the middle...

Oak Wall/Canopy #1: The Plan

07-15-2009 01:53 PM by Chris Davis | 2 comments »

This project is something a little different. It is a bedroom wall unit, not a murphy wall bed, but one with piers, headboard, mirrors and a light bar. The kind where the bed just sits in front of it. The twist on this one is I will be adding a canopy to it. This will be a canopy like the old waterbed style, with the mirrors in the top. I’ve built both the Accent style wall unit and the canopy in the past, but have never combined the two. I’ll start with a style that I built before an...
