Mini hand tool cabinet #5: Front and Back Panels

10-17-2014 10:27 PM by JSOvens | 0 comments »

Time for another update on the mini hand tool cabinet. These may start to come less frequently, since I am now involved in multiple Christmas Time projects as well (all of which I will post either in the Blog or at the very least in the Projects area early on in the new year). With all of the cabinet sides made, the next step I took was to make the panels for the back and for the door. My original plan was to find some 1/4” plywood for the panels, but I was enjoying using solid pine ...

Mini hand tool cabinet #3: Four panels

09-15-2014 07:35 AM by JSOvens | 1 comment »

I was able to spend some time last weekend preparing the boards I milled to be glued into panels. In the original plane I posted at the beginning of this series, the depth of both the wall-mounted portion and door were 4-1/2”. Since 2×4’s are about 3-1/2”, I decided to make one panel for each side just over 9” with three 2×4 boards, and then rip them in half. This more efficiently uses the wood than doing each 4-1/2” panel separately, and also gives som...

Question /Gluing solid wood panels

05-14-2014 06:26 PM by Rafe Demers | 2 comments »

I am currently working on a Jewlery Box and had some questions. I will be making the box out of Sapele with a bookmatched Birdseye Mapel panel for the top which will be held in a dado/groove. The bottom panel will be Sapele and secured the same way. The corners will be mitered with Wenge keys to help strengthen the joints. My question is should I glue in the bottom and top panels? The top and bottom panels for the box will be about 1/4 inch. I know that when making cabinet doors in the past I...

Reclaimed Glory #7: Reclaimed pine strip panel made with hand tools

09-17-2013 06:09 PM by palaswood | 0 comments »

After coming across a glue up thread yesterday, I was inspired to glue up a panel.I didnt take any pics of the actual glue up last night (DOH), but here is a panel I threw together with some reclaimed pine scraps I’ve been picking up every so often at random. I ran the handyman H1205 over the edges on the really rough pieces, then the block plane took out some knots, and finished with the #4 Stanley T13, which is cutting like butter after some tuning and filing down a ding at the...

Dark Box for Old Timey Pictures #1: Frame and panel construction, overlapping through mortises

08-27-2013 03:12 PM by BTimmons | 4 comments »

The project for my photographer friend is coming along, at least far enough to bother documenting it. He’s fallen in love with making ambrotype images. He’s got all the developing equipment in a dark room setup in his garage, and he’s asked me to make him a portable dark box that will enable him to develop images anywhere. His idea is to start a side business doing portraits at conventions, fairs, and whatnot. I decided that a frame and panel box would be fun to try, s...

Hope Chest Build #2: Hand raised panel-first one

05-01-2012 06:30 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 7 comments »

Well I started this blog section to keep track of how things were going. They went from good to ok to bad. When putting it all together it seemed like nothing was fitting up to square. I started using only hand tools and have started making some decent progress. I have the back panel all glued up, the front frame is ready for final assembly and the sides stiles and rails are all set for the panels. Today I got out to the shop and did some work on them. This is my first raised panel (machine o...

Work In Progress #4: Canasta Part 4

11-22-2011 07:29 AM by Byron | 0 comments »

So here it is, the final glue up. I over clamped to be safe, not in the sense of clamping pressure but as far as where I was clamping. This glue up entailed gluing all 4 sets of tails and pins with the mitered front (all the same piece) of the carcass as well as gluing in the center of the floating panel. By glueing the center of the panel I control the movement of expansion and contraction to both edges, ensuring the gaps always stay very close to the same, also keeping them as smal...

Oak 6 Panel Door Swap out

03-23-2011 04:45 AM by GrandsonOfRue | 2 comments »

My home was built with white 6 panel hollow core interior doors. I have long hated them. Thus this project was born. I also hate cheap brass lock sets and hinges. (On a side note I hate my builder – no one takes pride in their work anymore) I know that my doors are all Mastercraft. I started by purchasing a Mastercraft 6-panel Oak door. I scrapped the frame, finished the door and hung it. I did this to avoid the need to drill the lock set hole and mortise the hinges. I considered ...
