In this episode I install the 3 back pannels. I attached them with glue and screws .
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...
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...
Today i went back out to the workshop, which was so cold the joys of autum, after i had taken the masking tape off i cleaned the glue off and sanded the outside of the box then cut and glued a piece of leather for the inside of the base then cut some mapple slip for the tray to sit on and glued it on.while that was setting i made the tray which is made the same way as the box only on a smaller scale, then went about making a lid which is quite simple in design just a rebate to inset it intoth...
When my father gave me his woodshop there were several of these candle boxes that he had started for my mother. This year I decided to finish one of them for my mom for Christmas. Dad had made the box and drawers. The drawer fronts and lid were all I need to finish. For the lid, I am planning no resawing a solid wood panel to 3/8 inch. To help it keep from bowing, I will install some braces (screws only – no glue) to the underside of the lid. At least that is the plan as of today.!
In this episode I stain all the parts for the book case and then Istart on the assembly. The assembly took a lot longer then I thought soI only used some of that footage.
My shop has been invaded!!! Mike Gager posted a blog about an invasion of brown recluse spiders in his shop. I have another “invasion” of sorts that has occurred in my shop. Most of us tend to be somewhat solitary woodworkers and work alone in our shop. This has always been my situation as well. However last week this is what was going on in my shop: This is my son Jonathan using a jointer for the first time. Jon and his wife “commissioned” me to build...

Yo whats up everybody in this video I get all the shelves to the right width by planning them down. I had to make sure that the designs on the tops of the sides were straight because they were rough cut at the scroll saw. It tookbe a while to sand all the parts but I finished them off with 220 grit. www.kostasworkshop.blogspot.com
