Tall Oak Mirror ... getting warmer :-)

12-02-2009 04:19 AM by NBeener | 22 comments »

I’m so close! The clamps are holding the oak backer board on … which is holding the mirror in place. The top oak trim cap is just sitting there. The bottom trim cap was a no-show on photo day. It looks suspiciously like the top piece. BUT … I’m almost done! The trim blocks (the four corner pieces that surround the frame) are glued on. I’m going to run the top and bottom edges through my jointer, along with the top and bottom cap pieces … just to ...

Mom's Quilt Rack #2: Test Piece

12-01-2009 06:46 AM by imelmer | 0 comments »

Since I haven’t done much woodwork since high school other than Pinewood Derby and making pens, I decided to make a test piece. I picked up some pine and after the boards were planed, I did the basic layout. I still have a lot of work to do, but I have the pieces cut out. I was debating how to do the jointery, but I decided to try pocket screws and glue. Maybe I’ll get a couple of pics when I get the holes drilled. For now, here are some pics of the work so far. ...

First self designed piece of furniture #1: Almost built, getting close to the finishing stage

11-29-2009 04:09 AM by drfixit | 2 comments »

This is the first peice of furniture I have designed and built. It is a small table to sit between my parents two recliners. The slide out drawer will contain a small trash can that can be hidden when not in use. It is made of red oak. Trying to match some of the furniture thay have I made the profile around the top using the table saw, a 1/2” round over bit, and a 1/4” round nose bit. It still needs to be sanded down and will be stained pecan. The top is recessed for a piec...

Mom's Quilt Rack #1: Plans

11-29-2009 12:32 AM by imelmer | 5 comments »

I’m making a quilt rack for my mother. She didn’t want anything specif other than a wall mounted shelf with room to hang and display 2 quilts, so I just found some projects others have made and will be adding my own style. Hopefully she will like it. This is a very basic project, but I’ve wanted to learn more about how to use SketchUp, so I took the time to draw up some plans. I haven’t decided if I’ll be using pine or oak. If it turns out well, I might ...

Design Concepts #1: Custom Stationary Tool Cabinet

11-19-2009 11:44 PM by Unskilled | 0 comments »

I was tempted for a long time to create a tool cabinet like I’ve seen in many books and magazines (Shopnotes’ ‘Heirloom Toolbox’ comes to mind), but wasn’t prepares for such a daunting task immediately since I am a new woodworker. I then decided that I really like my Snap-On knockoff tool cabinet, so I have considered an alternate design to hold a very specific set of tools. So specific in fact, that I plan on french-fitting every tool in every drawer aside fro...

Jewelry storage

11-16-2009 05:49 AM by epp_dog | 5 comments »

I wanted to make a storage case for my young niece who LOVES necklaces (and my sister who is tired of untangling said necklaces). I started my inspiration from one of Doug Stowe’s books. I am using the basic dimensions but adding more of an “Arts & Crafts” feel. I also will not be adding his fabric panels. I also want to make a necklace carousel to add extra storage rather than just around the sides. I have been designing this as I go which means a lot of trips to t...
