Tool Chest Refurb #4: Skirts are for Tool Chests

07-20-2012 09:28 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 60 comments »

I need four sides of skirting for dovetailing in a way opposite the main body of the chest. As in, tails are cut into the face board of the main chest, but will get cut into the side boards of the skirt, to counteract each other and increase overall stability. I’m only able to get the bottom skirting entirely from my blue board: - Two long boards, front and back- Two short sides I want the blue and/or weathered edges to be ‘up,’ and cut edge down on these boards, a...

Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #21: Hinges and Hardware - Cabinet Complete

01-26-2013 12:51 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 59 comments »

When we left subject cabinet, the last part of the build was done, as the upper door pieces were cut and fit and glued up. Stiles ran long on the doors, as Lysdexic correctly pointed out, to prevent spitting of the entire stile while the mortises were cut. So we know the doors needed a trim length wise. What I didn’t realize is how close I had made it re: the rails. You can see in the pics below I had to preserve all of the rail material… Whew… There was ve...

Online Scroll Saw Class - Incredibly Fun Adventures in Scroll Sawing #3: Applying the Pattern for Scroll Sawing

07-15-2011 10:28 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 50 comments »

I hope everyone was able to find the supplies that I suggested in the last part. If anyone had any trouble, please let me know, either through a personal message or on the comment section here and between myself and the others here, we should be able to help you. We are now ready to apply our patterns to the wood in preparation for cutting. But first of all you need a pattern. I have made up a sheet of some simple shapes that you can use as a practice scroll saw pattern. Just click on ...

Bunk Bed Build #4: Plowing Grooves in the Rails and Posts

07-17-2013 01:53 PM by Mauricio | 48 comments »

Hello again folks, the next step was to plow some groves in the stretchers and posts of the head board. The old Stanley #45 was the weapon of choice for this stage of the project which is a lot of fun to use. Here I am with the tool in action! In my head I look much cooler doing this. The first challenge I had to overcome was the lack of a plywood sized cutter. As you are all aware ¾” plywood is slightly undersized so I had to use the next size down and then pair away the rest of the w...

Misc. Shop Stuff #27: Pewter Cupboard in Milkpaint

07-15-2013 03:13 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 48 comments »

Can’t find where I introduced this, but it’s a cabinet my son made in HS shop class last year but didn’t finish. A ‘threshold’ was missing below the door that needed to be added. Used the #66 to create add a detail to the main shelf, And with crown moulding it was ready for finishing. I applied 3:2:1 mix to the T&G back (all material is reclaimed), taped that off and primed the rest for milk paint. Tonight was the night to experime...

WHO TOOK THOR'S CHISEL?

05-21-2012 10:09 AM by stefang | 45 comments »

Why intarsia?I wanted to try my hand at intarsia and maybe marquetry later on. I have been seeing some of Kory’s wonderful intarsia projects for awhile and also Shipwrights beautiful marquetry, both of which I find very inspiring. (project Photos at the bottom) I decided to go the intarsia route first as this type of work is easier done on a scroll saw whereas fine marquetry when done on a scroll saw requires advanced sawing skills which can only be learned through practice, and I ha...

Ebonizing; Steel Wool and Vinegar

09-05-2008 02:04 AM by Allison | 38 comments »

A few months ago I had read an article about ebonizing wood with steel wool and vinegar. Awhile back I tried this and absolutely nothing happened. I never even tried again. Ebonizing is a stain of sorts I guess. I also have heard there are several ways of doing this. The reason the original article caught my eye was because I sure as hell don’t have the money to buy Ebony (wood), and I am forever wanting or needing dark/black wood for my projects and I do not like to use paint, to the ...

Easy Shop Table

01-14-2011 04:02 AM by Lockwatcher | 37 comments »

I started this project after building an assembly table from an issue of Wood Magazine (March 2010). The table was a lot of work (the torsion box top) but the main unit holding the table up was an easy build. That’s when I hit upon the idea of using the same design for a group of extra tables for other uses. I’ve built a number of these already, and am using one as a router table, a miter saw station, and a sharpening station. It is built using standard re-dimensioned co...

How to find and harvest legal burls!

10-13-2009 05:44 PM by OregonBurls | 37 comments »

Hey everyone, It was suggested that I start a discussion on how to find and harvest burls. Please give your input also. I don’t deal with straight grain that often. I cut and sell burls for a living so here is what I know. It is illegal to harvest a burl without permission. of course if it is on your own property you can give yourself permission. What I do is put an ad on Craig’s list saying I want your burls. Most people don’t know what burls are. So you don’t get that many calls....

This is a continuation of #5 in this series.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I have the slat wall paneling completed. Now how am I going to arrange my tools? I bought the material at Lowes. It’s 5/16” X 3 1/2” X 8’ 14 Sq ft. in a package. Other big box stores handle similar products. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This is the last wall, I ripped my boards in half to 1 5/8”. I like it better this way. There...
