I created a nice pine bookcase with dovetailed joints on top, 3 thru tenons, and custom made molding. This was done using handtools (except nail gun). Check out the video and comment. Remember to like and share it to support YouTube woodworkers.
Prestige design: CHECK OUT OUR FACEBOOK AND SHOW SOME REPORT… www.facebook.com/prestigedesign I always get a question before someone puts an order in “Can you really design what is in my mind?” My answer is YES. Then i prove it….I ask them key questions to help me understand what they want. Am i always right….NObut if i am not correct on what they want, they change their mind to the design i made The next question before i build it “how did y...
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...
Woodworking Supplies and Resources near Osan AB, ROK I’m putting this post together for any other military or DOD woodworkers that end up getting stationed out here at Osan AB in South Korea so they have some idea of what’s out there (and not) for them.First, there is NO woodshop on Osan. The closest locations are Yongsan (1.5hr drive) and Kunsan (3.0hr+ drive). They are shutting down Yongsan and will be eventually moving the woodworking shop to Camp Humphreys, but the timeline right now i...
With the planning more or less completed, it was time to decide on what wood to use. I recently acquired quite a bit of hardwood lumber, using up my lumber budget for about a year or so, so I was quite set on using what I had, rather than buying wood specifically for this project. The problem is, I didn’t really have any that were suitably sized for this project (in width or thickness). Furthermore, since I am making this cabinet small, there is a really possibility it will be replaced ...
I debated where to put this, then decided to stick with my Blog! I had a makeshift lumber rack made out of an old prison bunk-bed frame, it did it’s job, but it took up too much space, then last week I watched Jay Bates from Jays Custom Creations, construct a simple lumber rack made from 2×4s and metal conduit on YouTube, and that spurred me on to build a new rack. I hitched up the trailer and went off to Homecenter, bought a stack of 2×4s and some other timber for othe...
Summer is over and work, my business and life in gerneral have taken almost all my time. And my chair project have slowed down considerable. But in shorter periods i have had time in the workshop and done as much as possible. This is a compilation of 6 weeks: Last time we left about here: This looked cool but i was not totally satisfied. Things i wanted to improve was:- The back rest. It is too low and somehow just not´right´ - The general feel of the chair. Is it a little too static?-...
How I built a set of folding sawhorses from plans from Woodworking for MereMortals.http://youtu.be/2yGGXmuVi1A
It appears that our beloved President Santos has given us duff information, a couple of months ago, we were warned to expect El Niño, nine months of dry arrid weather, the last week has seen the return of the rainy season, and that is not just the odd shower, so I think our second winter of the year has arrived, which is not what I need at the moment. Unless the weather breaks and we have a decent spell, I am going to have to put the kiosko roof replacement on hold, I haven’t got suf...
I bought some small woodworking toys for my son one Christmas and when we were putting things together he made a comment that he would like his own workbench someday. This got the ol hamster whel a turning and I did some research into so ideas i could use to make him one. SOme blood sweat and one broken toe later He got one made just for him. He is also a huge Baltimore Orioles Fan as u can tell.
