Building For The Wife #5: Quick and dirty spice rack with doors

09-23-2015 01:39 AM by fatman51 | 2 comments »

With the finish drying on her bureau, a process that was taking forever because I used from a can of Ace extra slow drying polyurethane on the top, My wife reminded me that she wanted the finish to be extra smooth with lots of coats so that she could roll out dough on the countertop, and that I needed put up the spice cabinet when I brought in her new bureau so that she could organize everything affected by the change all at once with minimal disruption to her kitchen. Unbeknownst to her, ...

Building For The Wife #3: Constructing drawers and breadboard no1

09-18-2015 06:06 PM by fatman51 | 2 comments »

I had a nice little cabinet, and some drawer glides milled out of an old chunk of exterior decking lumber, but no drawers and no bread board. Anxious to remedy this, I have been spending my evenings in my shop. My first job was to mill the back and side panels for the drawers out of forty year old reclaimed pine 1×12s. Then I picked out a piece of knotty pine for my front panels. I put some thought into what sort of joint I wanted to use for my drawers. On ordinary...

Building For The Wife #2: Ipe drawer glides for custom kitchen bureau.

09-14-2015 08:47 AM by fatman51 | 3 comments »

I had to edit this blog and change the title, because I did identify the wood I have as Ipe. Ipe or Brazilian walnut is a popular high end exterior decking lumber. Mine came from from Brazil and according to Wooddatabase.com ( http://www.wood-database.com/lumber-identification/hardwoods/ipe/ ), Ipe was moved from the Tabebuia genus, listed as a spiecies of ironwood ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ironwood ) to the Handroanthus genus, which is not on that list, in 2007. This is news to me, ...

Farmhouse Table Build - Construction Grade Lumber

09-13-2015 07:00 PM by Chris McDowell | 12 comments »

You can see how I built the table in a video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bL0kh2faVpk My sister-in-law and her husband recently moved back home from out of town. They have a dining room, but no dining table so she asked me to build one for her. She picked out some plans online and they are free from Shanty-2-Chic.com. She told me not to change a thing. The only things I did different were related to the construction and assembly. Otherwise, it looks just like the one in the p...

Why buy it when you can make it! #39: Workbench Time [Part 3] - Ready to work

Last night, after several nights of working on and off on the project, I finally finished my workbench and I couldn’t be happier. There’s still a few loose ends to take care of (adding the shelf for heavier tool storage. I will write more about it in the project post.

Napkin Ring Experiment(s)

09-10-2015 06:53 PM by Dave Rutan | 5 comments »

This is not worthy of being called a project. Doing some fooling around with some scrap, I made a pair of similar napkin rings. One is 3/4 inch oak and the other is about 5/8 in ‘wedge’ wood pine. I cut these out using a hole saw with two rings installed on one arbor. Then I Sanded the faces and edges on a belt sander, creating bevels with the belt sander as well. Then I hand sanded and dunked them in boiled linseed oil. After that, I applied wax to them from a ca...

Building For The Wife #1: Custom kitchen Bureau with drawers.

09-10-2015 11:06 AM by fatman51 | 7 comments »

Building for the wife. A project that started with my great great grandmother’s traditional sideboard. Though not particularly valuable, this maple buffet cabinet dates as far back as the civil war era. It was produced in a shop that probably sold a good number of them. The front and sides were well finished, the back, bottom, and inside of the cupboard were rather course in appearance. The cabinet was efficiently assembled and the construction did not rely on glue. I do not know w...

Son has an electric impact driver. Added a long extension, and drove the lags home. had to lay ON the floor for this little job.. Dug around through the scrap piles….found some 5/4 pine….way too long and a bit too wide…we have ways of dealing with that… ...

Found a vise to use..

09-08-2015 05:05 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Went to a Tractor Fest over the weekend. Amongst all the “goodies” I brought home, was a $10 Craftsman 7” wood working vise. Figured I could make some use out of it. The end of my bench is just about where all the “action” takes place, anyway. Not too often it is even cleared off.. Sooo, dug out some toys, and a big clamp. On the end of the bench, it is just a 2×4 as an End cap. It is also where the legs have a few bolts. Had to sit the...
