I have always wanted to build a Gerstner style wooden tool box but the drawers were designed more for a machinist than woodworking. The project has stayed on the backburner for a long time. A few months ago i saw a picture and downloaded an article from FWW on the Essential Toolbox by Mike Pekovich. I had built a wall cabinet based on his design earlier and found that the design lent itself very well to personalizing it. The toolchest design seemed to be the same way. I really wanted a th...
I filmed the build on my YouTube Channel. Please check it out! http://youtu.be/fPFrnuQRwWk I was commissioned to build this frame and thought I would take you guys along for the ride. The build consists of poplar stock, glass, black vinyl decals, glue Primary construction method was domino reinforced miters. The glass was held in with a rabbit. If you have any more comments, questions or suggestions please leave them here or on YouTube. ETSY SHOP
I could have bought the wheels for my new T and J project, but decided to make my own. I prefer wheels from oak (a bought wheel is from beech) because ebonizing and I also I prefer a rim that is separate from the tire. Her you can see how I did it: First wood selected and signed wheels:Bandsaw work:Drilling a hole 35 mm, 11 mm deep: Turning the wheels a little oversized:Made a hole 8mm for the axle pegs: Putting about 10 wheels on a rod for final diameter turning;Than made with an a...
I’ve just started a big furniture build, both a sofa and loveseat. The shop is going to get crowded. I’ve started a build series on it on my blog. This time, I get to start with the tree the lumber came from, sustainably, urban-ly harvested from the U of Chicago campus! http://dcwwoodworks.com/blog/2015/1/29/prairie-sofa-loveseat-part-1
It’s been far too long since I got out into my workspace and did anything (too cold, other personal stuff). So I decided today was the day I would try to replace my circle saw guide. The idea of a saw guide is not new and, I’m sure, nearly everyone has made one at one point. the idea is simple: You have a base that the shoe of the saw sits on and a straight edge on one side that the shoe rides against to give you a straight cut. Well, for reasons that can be summed up as ‘...

Scholars: When my wife and I were kids we picked up a lovely, battered 12-foot solid oak library trestle table from Duke Salvage for a couple hundred bucks. Two-inch top. It was our office table for years as we dragged it around with us, paying piano rate to move it. The top weighs, I dunno, 80,000 pounds. For the last 15 years it has been in our garage as occasional project table and world’s heaviest shelf. So my kids bought me a table saw and I am now a newly, hopelessly addict...
