Bathroom furniture The bathroom furniture is made for my daughter and son in law and adapted to a relative small room. Not to bee dominate in the small room the countertop of the furniture is gently curved. The appearance will then be a little softer.The furniture is made in white oak, with base-cabinets made of baltic birch.The finish is one layer of boiled linseed oil, 3 layers of shellac and on the top 3 layers of satin varnish. The base units are made of 19mm baltic birch. This plywoo...

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
In this episode I show you all of the ins and outs on using hardwood edge banding. I had to pick up a new trim router so once I make the new base I will show that to everyone.
Started this in January as a gift to my wife for Christmas. This was “given” to her this pas Christmas as a picture and a note telling her I was making it as she said she wanted one. I could not find any worth a crap so I am making.
So I’m FINALLY finished with this project and it feels like it took forever. There’s been a lot going on and I haven’t had nearly as much time as I would have liked in the shop. I’m not sure if that’s just life or the holiday season, but it doesn’t look like the activity is going to let up in the next few months… In the last entry, I showed offed the jigs I had built to help with the taper cuts and creating the 14” radius cut in the back sl...
Oak leaves have a unique and distinctive leaf shape Oak trees grow on each of the five continents and cultures at every level have relied on the wood and acorn, the tannic acid and the bark throughout the millennia. Great ships with oak bows and rudders crisscrossed the globe. Massive barns and manorial homes came from the stems and crooks of full-grown oaks in every county. It would be impossible to catalogue the provision we have from the ancestry of the common oak. Oak works...
I have finally started building the changing table for my brother and his wife. I got the plan from u-bild. I am building the project out of red oak. I have the pieces all cut and ready to assemble at this point. I have assembled a few pieces, getting to use my finish nailer for the first time. That thing is a little scary the first couple of squeezes of the trigger. My saw is cutting through the oak just find, after figuring out the speed I needed to feed it. Pictures to follow later ...
Last night I worked on my first shelf. Let me tell you I was very nervous. First thing I did was working with some scap. I got it worked out so that I had a test piece that had the correct nosing depth and thickness to test my frame notches. When I first created the notches on the frames, I went ahead and made them a little bit smaller than 3/4. I did this because I really want a tight fit between the frames and the shelves. So with my notch tester in hand I checked each notch and then san...
RecapMy niece will graduate as a nurse in the near future. She has moved into a new house and asked me for a small desk for her new flat panel iMac. I decided to make an oak desk that would be loosely based on the mission style but with side panels that would reflect her future as an RN. My goal is a small desk 48” x 29” with keyboard drawer and a small drawer. I’ll be trying my first hand made dovetails on scrap and then on to my first dovetailed drawer I put this out here, baring all for...
