Cocobolo and Leopardwood Table : Process pics. #1: Veneered Panels/Framing the Top

02-01-2016 05:12 AM by jeth | 0 comments »

Hello all, I had a couple of peeps interested in seeing the process shots of the Cocobolo and Leopardwood table with drawer that I posted, so I thought I’ll blog it here split into a few parts so nobody has to scroll through it all in one go… You can see the finished project here. I don’t have a shot of the small Cocobolo board I was given that inspired this table before I started cutting it up but it was a couple of board feet. There was a lovely rich heartwood section d...

Shop Remodel #18: Rinse and Repeat

12-11-2015 09:31 PM by bearkatwood | 8 comments »

In the summer 1978 issue of FWW, Tage Frid wrote about tool cabinets.“Why bother making a tool cabinet when a crate with shelves nailed in would hold the tools? I believe if a person wants to make a living as a woodworker and furniture designer, a well-designed and executed tool cabinet is very important. It’s a pleasure to have a beautiful tool cabinet, where the tools are properly arranged and easy to find. And when a potential customer comes into the shop and sees a nice cabinet, half the ...

Shop Remodel #10: I got your back!

12-03-2015 01:06 AM by bearkatwood | 4 comments »

Hi everyone, hope all is well. I took a picture of the drawer in the saw till as I forgot to yesterday. When we last left our caped crusader he had just assembled a square to become a tool cabinet. Well today I made a panel to become the back. I thought about doing ship lap for the back, but my board wasn’t wide enough. It was all I could do to resaw the 12 1/4” wide curly maple board into three plates 1/4” thick. So I came up with a split panel frame inste...

A Sliding Door #6: On the glue

11-08-2014 01:41 AM by Mark Kornell | 4 comments »

Started the glue-up yesterday, finished it today. Yesterday: I started by checking the fit for all the pieces. First up, the panels. And they don’t fit, which was expected. The groove has round ends while the panel is square: A few ways to fix this, but I picked up the mortise chisel and mallet to square off the ends of the grooves. The panels fit now The panel was a pretty tight fit, but I can address that later. Glued tenons into the first rail And then the rail into...

A Sliding Door #5: Grooving the panels

11-06-2014 05:19 AM by Mark Kornell | 4 comments »

When I got up this morning, Spawn had coughed up a hairball overnight. Right in front of my coffee station. I think he knows I’m writing about him. The next step in the door build was the panels. First making the panels and then cutting grooves into the rails and stiles to accept the panels. The panels are 1/2” MDF. I’ll spare the reader the details on cutting the sheet down. Suffice it to say, I’ve got 5 identical panels sized to fit their openings. I decided...

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...
