A non-plywood 4 drawer filing cabinet #1: The design

04-30-2014 09:29 AM by GCM | 0 comments »

Here is my attempt to build an affordable wooden 4 drawer filing cabinet. I rule out: Plwood, as it is way too expensive in Australia for anything but the most expensive style of furniture.MDF, I built a single draw prototype and, even when using frame construction, it was way too heavy.Melamine, may be a good choice but for this project I don’t think it looks good enough.Solid wood, as it is too expensive. My current choice is to go with premium (knot free) pine and pine panel...

Secret Dovetails: a bottom for the box

04-20-2014 05:33 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Almost got this box about sized up. Some tweaking at the corners, maybe. Time to add a bottom? Needs a groove made in the sides of the box, so A Plough plane to cut some 1/4” by 1/4” grooves. Plane just MIGHT be a tad older than me? I had a piece of pine scrap, almost the right sizes for the box. needed a rebate around the edges, though So, a Wards #78 set to take a bit of the top, er, bottom of the panel. Seems I had the panel a might too smooth and shiny. ...

Desk Repair #2: Routing the trim...

04-17-2014 12:57 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Today, taking advantage of the 50° temperatures outside after another cold snap (yes, it snowed two days ago) I used my hand planes to knock down the slight lip on the maple support of the shortened desktop and the pine trim piece I glued up last time. It only took a few minutes – it took me longer to remember how to stand and hold the thing than it did to start the shavings flying. It’s been entirely too long since I was in the shop. Nevertheless, I quickly had a nice leve...

Carving a small spoon

04-16-2014 04:10 PM by filiplaw | 3 comments »

I had a small piece of pine laying around and a free afternoon so I decided to carve another spoon. I wanted it to be small (somewhere between a teaspoon and a tablespoon) and simple in shape. I traced around some plastic spoon I had in my kitchen and altered the handle shape a bit. With the outline ready I went to work. I made some stop-cuts with a saw and bashed out the waste with a 20mm chisel. I also did the same to the underside since the stock was way too thick for a spoon.I find ...

Desk Repair #1: Back to work...

04-16-2014 01:42 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Back in the heart of winter, oh, about a month ago, before my surgeries, before Percoset, before spring….my wife and I decided to switch our dining room with our office. We had wood floors put in and the change has not only made the house look better but made us (her) VERY happy. The flooring was installed while I recovered from surgery #1 (planned). The everything had to wait while I recovered from surgery #2 (unplanned!). Despite all that drama during March, things progressed ...
