Tool Chest #2, Build an end panel

08-08-2014 05:06 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, frame is almost done Maybe some tweaking left. Needed to find out what size to finish cut the raised panel to. Around 11-1/4 by 13 or so. Got out the “Speed Square” and laid out a few lines. Running the circular saw a different direction this time, with most of the weight on the non waste side Set the saw to almost cut through the panel, and NOT the benchtop. Next, maybe make some beveled edges? A Millers Fall #14 Jack plane for the work. I marked out ab...

Boat Bed #3: Bow footboard Toy box

04-29-2009 01:47 PM by Chris Davis | 2 comments »

I worked on the bow of the boat bed. This is a design that I came up with. You may have seen them with drawers in the bow, but I find those not very practical. Because of the shape the drawers must be a triangle shaped. Because of that they can’t hold much stuff. My design has been to use it as a toy box. I first cut the shape of the bottom. I now have templates. The top is the same shape but with a cutout, to make a face frame of sorts. I attach both of them to a back board using p...

Coffee Table - Red Oak & Padauk #1: Table Top

04-16-2012 03:50 PM by Mosquito | 2 comments »

I’m in the process of building a coffee table for my apartment. I’m using Red Oak and Padauk for this. It’s going to be a relatively basic basic table. It was an extremely nice day for this in March. Yes, I started this in March… outside… in shorts… in MN… did I mention my distaste for this “winter”? Anyway, I started by using my [home made] router table to shave a pair of 3/4×11.25” boards down to 11” wide to use ...

Craftsman Style Kitchen Cabinets #1: The Leap

07-03-2012 11:04 PM by Douglas | 2 comments »

First, I have to apologize for this multi-part series not being posted as I went along. I am starting posting this series now that I am 97% done with the whole thing. As a two year long lurker on LJs, I know that if I’d been posting these as I went along, I would have had lots of helpful, timely feedback al the way. I probably would have avoided some mistakes and been more efficient as well. But I didn’t. So why am I posting now? I’m doing so as way to give back to this comm...

Bookcase Challenge04 #3: Building the lighting section

10-24-2008 03:56 AM by lightweightladylefty | 2 comments »

Building the lighting section was a little more challenging. I used a 2¼” stock crown molding to trim out the area where the fluorescent light would be. I needed a ledge on which the lighting panel could set, so I routed a narrow piece of oak using the rail bit and cut off the “lip” and glued it into a dado I cut into the back of the crown molding. I also cut a dado into the main carcass and inserted a “lip” into it as well. We want to be able to remove this bookcase without d...

Coffee Table - Red Oak & Padauk #2: Legs and Apron

04-16-2012 05:44 PM by Mosquito | 2 comments »

I’m back! I got another days worth of work done on Saturday, while the weather was nice I cut the legs from oak 4×4’s using a handsaw: I cut all 4 legs, then I used my router to make part of the tenons on the Apron boards: This was messy… And it looked like I was eating Cheetos all day and wiping my hands on my shorts: My first Mortice and Tenon! Not the best, but it’s at least a decent flat fit All the tenons are done, and 2 legs have the Mor...

Carving Green Wood #1: How much will green carving wood move?

08-08-2013 05:13 PM by Tom Pritchard | 2 comments »

I have been carving for sometime and lately I have been carving some walking sticks. The material I use is fallen sticks found in the forest. The stick is still green, but I still carve. A friend of mine asked me by using a green wood, would the wood warp and crack? I said, well I’m not sure. To me it’s ok if it warps some because it’s only stick. The twisting and warping may improve the looks. Can anyone else share there thoughts about carving green wood and what you might ...

An Old Project, No Longer With Me

01-27-2011 05:43 AM by WhiskeyWaters | 2 comments »

My Mother’s frame & picture present from me and my family – this is about the most well put together wood piece I’ve done. The second in a series, I plan on tweaking the design (oak, danish oil finish, curved verticals with flat horizontals) until I get it right. Then I’m filling the house with framed art and pretending I’m cultured and human. I have an interesting post on www.woodshopcowboy.com planned for this weekend – a question regarding q...
