Pine Nightstand #1: Small mistakes and recovery

03-22-2014 04:32 AM by mitchota | 0 comments »

A while back (like 6 months ago), I was building a chest of drawers for my fiancee’s Japanese dance clothes. I ran into some problems with the pine boards I got being VERY cupped and I wasted a few good pieces trying to make the the drawer fronts. I saved a few of the straighter pieces and made a glue-up for a nightstand I was going to make for myself. It turns out that work and life caught up with me so my table saw and woodworking tools went into hibernation for the winter. But, it...

Router Table by Julie #7: Completing the Drawers

03-21-2014 05:40 PM by ~Julie~ | 9 comments »

After getting the switch installed in the top “drawer” area, I needed then to make two drawers below that, on the left hand side. I had two drawers that were part of an old entertainment unit that we threw out. I kept some parts including two drawers as well as drawer slides. The drawers were too wide for my router table: So, I taped the drawer slides into the cabinet and measured the width I would need for my drawers to fit: Then I cut the drawer, allowing for the side ...

First mortise

03-20-2014 01:38 PM by TechTeacher04 | 3 comments »

First impressions are high, powermatic 701 is heavy, almost 100 pounds. The lever arm is sculpted nicely and is comfortable. Action of the power head is very smooth. Can’t wait to make a panel. Mortising tip, many video show to make first cuts at end of the mortise then space them in the middle to remove the waste, this technique works great.

Router Table by Julie #6: Adding the ON/OFF switch ... finally

03-17-2014 09:27 PM by ~Julie~ | 10 comments »

I cannot believe it has been 1111 days since I posted about my router table. And I never finished it until recently, a bad habit of mine. I had the drawer fronts ready to go, but had to make some drawers. I just never put the drawers together and I was using it without them, I’ll show those in the next post. The switch I’ve had installed for a few years, so I’ll show that now. This is where I left off all those days ago: I had asked about ON/OFF switches and someone...

Boys Bedroom (cape cod) #1: Where I am so far

03-11-2014 02:58 AM by Questtut | 1 comment »

So, it is time for my boys to get their own room. They are getting too big for their cribs, and I need to finish that spare bedroom for them so they can have their own space. We have a small cape cod home, originally 4 bedrooms when we moved in, but we made it 3, creating a master bedroom downstairs by combining the 2 smaller rooms. Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms, shaped like a plus symbol, and a small half bath (currently unusable as well). The bath will be a project for another day...

Workbench build - roubo #4: Stretchers

03-05-2014 11:38 PM by buck_cpa | 0 comments »

The stretchers are made from construction 2×6s. I cut a 1/4” off each side to make square (no round edges) and let them sit in the shop for a month or so. One of them twisted, so I was glad I had extras. I followed Schwarz’s plans pretty closely as far as the dimensions and making the stretchers coplaner with the legs. First I put the legs through the benchtop (upside down) and marked all of my mortises using a few smaller pieces of the 2×6s that would be the actual stre...

Workbench build - roubo #2: The top

02-28-2014 12:14 AM by buck_cpa | 1 comment »

For the top, I decided to use construction grade 2×4s. However, I did not realize that I was short by a few when I started. My father in law gave me some redwood 2×6s from a deck he took down a few years ago. He told me all the rich people in Belle Meade, TN used to have their decks built from the stuff, but now you can’t find the stuff anywhere. The 2×6s he gave me were rotten for first inch. I ripped it off the top inch at the tbsw and planed them down to 1.5”. Th...

Building and Painting a Step Stool

02-26-2014 10:33 PM by ~Julie~ | 3 comments »

I had a customer ask if I could make a pine step stool. Here’s what I came up with. We will need five pieces: two sides, a brace, a step, and a top This is the (right) side piece, with the two holes drilled on the inner face, for the brace. The holes do not go through to the outside, this way no screws are used and therefore no screws show in the finished stool: This is the back brace, which sits between the sides. I glued two dowels on each end which will f...

Tool chest or blanket chest? #6: tote tray

02-26-2014 02:43 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ok, two coats of varnish on the chest, and rubbed out. Picked up a 1×10 pine scrap. Tray that is in the back is….ok, but could use one I can lift out and haul stuff around in. Measured the inside available area. Just about 25” long. Hmmm, a backsaw’s tote sticks upa bit, so things got a little narrower. Measure the plank, an UGLY one at that Figured I could get at least three 25” long slabs out of it. Clamped the plank to the bench, marked a ...
