Bookcase Challenge04 #4: NEARLY COMPLETE

10-31-2008 03:20 AM by lightweightladylefty | 3 comments »

As it seems with every project, there are always set-backs. I was nearly finished except for the bottom doors when I ran out of stain. The paint store that custom-mixed the stain is 35 miles away so I decided to experiment with dye. Well, not on the bookcase, but on my hair. Do you like the results? When I finally got the stain and finished the doors, I had only three hinges for the bottom doors. The top doors were made with an additional ¼” added to make the doors 1” thick wh...

Sewing Center #4 (Finally some progress)

02-02-2009 06:50 AM by robbi | 5 comments »

I feel like I got lots done this weekend. The one thing I have noticed is that the plans I have for this give you lots of instruction for some things and absolutely NO instruction for others. Makes it sort of difficult at times. Anyway…here’s what I did this weekend…. First I attached the drawer slides… Then I glued the pedestals together The plans called for all the parts to be cut out first but I learned a long time ago not to do that, so once the ped...

French Fry Friday #1: November 5, 2010

11-05-2010 03:31 PM by Chris Davis | 2 comments »

I started a theme for each day of the week. Fridays will be “French Fry Friday” and I’ll be talking about some sort of accessories that I build. Why “French Fry Friday”? I always here “would you like fries with that?” Fries are a side item and not part of the main meal. Same thing with the accessories or smaller items that I build. I blog about the big stuff but neglect the smaller stuff. So hear is a chance for often overlooked items to shine. This first one is a bookcase that was part of...

Lauren's Bed #2: Drawer Slides and Doors

02-09-2011 05:48 AM by Jesse Schutt | 3 comments »

Like many of you, I ended up catching a case of the winter flu last week. So that forced me to spend my “day off” in bed recovering. But that is past me now and I was able to spend a little time in the shop and work on my daughter’s bed. There really isn’t anything incredibly unique here, but I wanted to share some of the photos of the progress. I found some drawer slides on Amazon for reasonably cheap. I ended up paying around $75 for ten sets of 18”...

Kitchen Window Arches

10-31-2008 03:51 AM by lightweightladylefty | 6 comments »

I originally wanted raised panel arches for over the windows in the kitchen similar to some I had seen at Menards. That was three years ago. I drew them up full scale and gave them to the cabinetmaker who did our kitchen. He never got to them so I decided I would make them. I had done all the trim work in the kitchen, fluted some pieces, and added corner blocks with rosettes to trim between cabinets in the dining room. After thinking on the arch design for a period of time, I decided t...

Tool Box #2: case work

08-12-2014 11:01 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ok, spent a bit of time getting the case put together. Things just seem to roost on my benchtop. Setting the panels upside down on an almost flat benchtop. Clamp an end panel to the front/back panel. The longer panels have a series of counter-bored screw holes, about seven per corner. Clamp a corner together, add a few screws, move the clamp a bit to uncover the one or two that are hiding under them. Work my way around, by adding the other end panel, rotate the three piece set aro...

Rockin' Ride #1: The SketchUp Design

01-12-2009 02:53 AM by kshipp | 3 comments »

Refers to project posted here. I’ve been designing this for almost eight months now. I planned to complete it before I got deployed in June but I got busy with other things and wasn’t able to really start on it before I left. This allowed me to spend a lot more time thinking about the design and refining it while I was in Iraq. I’m currently home for a short leave so I decided the design is locked in and I’m trying to crank this out in about four days. My niece i...
