Drill press table and fence #1: Knobs!

02-22-2012 04:52 AM by Jimmy0x52 | 1 comment »

I did some glue up of the drill press table tonight and built part of the fence, more on those later. I did build my favorite thing to build right now – KNOBS! These will be to hold down the fence, stop block, etc on my drill press table I’m building. Really easy to make: Step 1: Find a fairly large hole saw bit (like > 2”)Step 2: Trace it out on a piece of wood and find the center – draw a line all the way across the circle and then draw a line bisecting it i...

Pine Shaker Closet Dresser #2: Gluing, pocket holes and stanley #45

02-21-2012 04:06 PM by PaBull | 10 comments »

Today I went ahead and got the boards for the top and sides all cut up. The sides are nice and straight. And we are gluing up the boards. I do them one board at a time. this way I have a better control over the alignment of the boards and I have to do less planing and or sanding later. Below is an other picture with the designing of the dresser. I used a FWW magazine to get some inspiration on how the build the “guts” of a dresser. I need to see this coming together still. ...

Pine Shaker Closet Dresser #1: Designing and materials

02-20-2012 05:52 PM by PaBull | 14 comments »

We finished building our house in 2008, but there are all those little projects that you have to set yourself to get done or it will never happen. In addition to getting side tracked, the shop (garage) or what ever you call it, starts to fill as storage. The amount of things that need fixing keeps stacking up too. But today is the day we start a new project. I need to build a dresser that will fit right in my closet, between the vertical pine members, just the way we planned it 4 years ...

Distressed Pine Island/Table #1: I seriously took a flying knot to the head

02-18-2012 01:58 AM by AmandasHusband | 4 comments »

The mother-in-law has been nagging me to build this “table” for about a year. The problem is, she wants something different every time I talk to her about it. She’s settled on 79”x30” at about 38” tall. She wants square legs, 3 sides enclosed, and two shelves. Oh, and she wants it made out of knotty pine to look distressed. So I started it last weekend. Went to Home Depot for some 2×6’s and 2×4’s. Then i glued then squared up ...

Strongest mitre for picture frame - How I made it

02-16-2012 02:42 PM by Paul Sellers | 4 comments »

Moulding the stock Following up from the video film on the strength of these mitres. These are the steps I took to make this picture-frame moulded and inlaid stock and the frame itself. It’s dead straight forward using a pair of wooden T&G planes, a moulding plane, a tenon saw and a plane. You can make a simple shooting board with stop screwed to a board at 45-degrees or a proper one with removable stops. I took about 45 minutes to make it. Mould the stock with the moulding plane. I...

Small Bathroom Shelf w/ Reclaimed wood

02-15-2012 03:54 PM by Brian024 | 1 comment »

Recently built this small bathroom storage shelf. The wood was some laminated pine boards that were used for a bookcase that fell apart, the person gave me the boards for free and I used them for this shelf. Very simple construction that relied on screws because I did not have the time to use traditional joinery. The finish was Minwax Helsmans satin. The dimensions were 36” tall, 15” wide and 7” deep.

Scrap Uses

02-14-2012 05:19 PM by Roger | 30 comments »

Here’s just a few scraps that have been saved from the firepit. There’s always something you can use a cutoff, or leftover, and whatever for something useful. Maple cutoffs Thin Strips (if the scrap is large enough to be safely cut) Plywood, and 2×4’s make very nice tool holders, etc. for close-at-hand necessities And a turned hold-down knob for, well, holding something down. A good friend o mine gave me this chunk of Pine that used to be a part of a di...

Easy made toolboxes from "leftovers"

02-11-2012 10:51 PM by theSawdustSurfer | 2 comments »

I really like projects when i can go down to the shop and use what i already have without going to the store and buy “the optimal” wood for “the perfect” solution. It started with purely practical reasons i have a small shop with almost no storage space and before i can buy more wood i have to get rid of the old. therefor i started doing projects with scrap pieces. its fun, you have to let the wood define the project, so to speak. and if you are a novice like...
