New victim/addict

08-01-2011 04:40 PM by Michael Wilson | 18 comments »

Happy Monday o/ I recently moved from a teeny one-bedroom apartment in Brooklyn Heights to a house in the sticks a few hours north. It’s a lot of space to fill. I get to have a reasonable dresser, a bed AND couch instead of a ratty old futon, etc. I started furniture shopping and my jaw hit the floor. I half jokingly suggested to my favorite bartender that I could outfit a wood shop for the cost of the dresser I wanted and make my own ugly as sin but sturdy and functional furn...

The Rocking Alligator #3: Construction Notes

08-01-2011 04:38 AM by BentheViking | 0 comments »

The main body of the alligator is a box. My problem has been that I don’t have a planer or joiner so making a box with tight joints is rather difficult. I sanded them out a little bit, but ended up having to make the joints a bit rough and then puttying them. Puttying has become a big theme on this project. I had originally wanted to make this project super perfect with tight joints and whatnot. My problem is that with my impending move, I am having to rush through things. It kind of...

It's Beginning to look at lot like Christmas #2: Box Drawers Begin to Take Shape

07-28-2011 06:56 PM by Kerry Drake | 1 comment »

I got the snowman carcass and drawers all separated and the drawers cut up and formed back together. I also got the first round of sanding done on the snowman’s body. Predictably, I am planning to paint this white (with a black hat, black buttons and and orange nose). Next up is some sanding on the drawers, and cutting up a 1/4” dowel to make the 3 “buttons” to go down the front (2 of the buttons will be drawer pulls for the 2 bottom drawers).

Roubo Cabinet #17: Finish Applied, Final Entry

07-26-2011 04:24 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 12 comments »

Two snapshots is all there is for this entry. Pulled the cabinet out of its cubby below the workbench and set it on top for an applied finish. I’ve thought for awhile there were some proud dovetail joints needing some final attention, but decided all was good. Finish consisted of a single coat of boiled linseed oil, which I will reapply this fall when my entire bench is due for a refresher coat of Watco’s. Started wiping the first drawer, big smile on my face. I was amazed / truly didn...

What to do with a half round window.

07-26-2011 02:20 AM by rcs47 | 3 comments »

We’ve all seen, and many have those half round windows. But what can you do? Buy a fabric, plastic or wooden fan louver? Why not build a wooden fan louver? Its really not that hard. I start by making the outside frame to fit the window. I draw one line that will give me 1/4” clearance inside the window opening. I draw a second line the thickness of the frame marking the inside of the frame. Because this is a simple curve, I didn’t need to build a complete two part form. I just need...

It's Beginning to look at lot like Christmas #1: A bandsaw box inspiration

07-25-2011 09:18 PM by Kerry Drake | 3 comments »

A couple nights ago I was laying in bed thinking about a particularly nice pine glue up cut off I had sitting out in the shop. Every time I’ve gone out there recently, it catches my eye. I had a rare burst of creative inspiration and a thought came to me on what I could with it. My wife loves snow men, so this should be something she will like. I am planing to make 3 drawers, if I was braver I would cut the drawers out, tape them back in place, and turn it so that it w...

Roubo Cabinet #16: Final Assembly - Drawer Backs, Bottoms and Fitting

07-25-2011 04:48 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 10 comments »

This is the last post required to complete the build and make ready for applying the finish of my choice to get this one in the books. Once all the drawer fronts have been joined to the sides, and those cut to rough length, I had to work on adding backs to the drawers as well as bottoms. All drawer backs were set into simple dados that were cut on the table saw. For the Big Drawer as well as the Big Pair of drawers, the drawer bottom consists of a single piece of repurposed hardboa...

Skill Building #4: Raised Panels with the Stanley #78

07-23-2011 06:30 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 11 comments »

Did a search on LJs for anyone using the venerable Stanley #78 and found nothing. Tonight in the shop I staged a bit of a dry run with the plane, making a ‘raised panel’ drawer bottom, and took some pictures along the way. First step was to check the iron. I bought the plane probably more than a year ago and my sharpening skills have improved since then, so it was a natural place to start because “sharp fixes everything” and I’m going to be cutting across the grain… The back had to be flat...
