Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #6: Some More Carcase Joinery

04-15-2012 04:21 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 18 comments »

So there’s a bit more that has to be done before finishing the overall carcase of this wall hung tool cabinet to be, and it’s all about dados and stopped dados. Quite simply, the cabinet will be divided into two distinct parts: a lower section that has a tambor door and storage for two jack planes (cambered #5 and #62), then an upper section that has a pair of doors with ‘depth’ storage inside. So the first thing to do is create the joints for the divider as well as...

Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #5: What's In a Partition?

04-14-2012 09:55 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 13 comments »

The Inspiration Piece features a couple of partions with great curves that I want to replicate in my cabinet, so I pulled out paper, pencil and scissors and set about tracing one of them. The original: Put on paper: I did the glue-up of the panel last week, and planed it true and smooth. The orig is 21” and that means the pattern is not ‘to scale’... But a photocopier came to rescue… I Shaded the profiled edge of the pattern a...

French screen doors #2: Making the grills

04-10-2012 08:20 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 3 comments »

In the last video, I began making screen doors for a set of exterior french doors. Today I started to make the grils. The owner wanted vertical slats that rose at least 24” as he has a medium sized dog that wil punch the sceen out without them. I’ve decided that a dog needs to go in and out so I’ll put the grills on both sides of the doors.Cutting the slats, About a dozen per grill was a long tedious task with sanding and all. Below is a short slideshow video with narrated e...

French screen doors #1: Starting with embedded framing squares?

04-04-2012 12:08 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 7 comments »

A set of hard to get screen doors for Anderson exterior french doors. This ‘beginning’ shows the production of the rails and styles with embedded metal to brace the doors to help with any possible sagging. The unusual thing about it is that as I was going to weld up some flat bar into an L shape, I instead found some $2 framing squares which looked exactly like what I would have made. View the short video of the start of these doors. The video begins after I have cut up and st...

My First Bench #1: Sketchup Plans

04-03-2012 02:02 AM by Joe0907 | 6 comments »

While I was originally planning on making a table saw cabinet for my first big project, I decided to try something a bit less involved to break in my new workshop – a bench for my front porch. I won’t be able to start right away, because I still need some items for my shop before I get started (the arbor washer for my table saw, a scroll saw, and a drill press, all of which are at my father’s house). But I really enjoy planning projects, so I dove right in with that. I loo...

Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #4: Some Carcase Joinery

04-01-2012 03:23 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 18 comments »

Top joins the sides with half-blinds, so let’s clamp up and get started. Mark and cut the tails. No dovetail jigs… It’s for strength, doesn’t have to be perfect as a shop joint. Chop the waste. Gauge setting for the ‘inset’ of the pinboard, then balance the tail board to tranfer tail lines: I did place a straightedge alongside the setup to ensure the layoit ot the two pieces stayed ‘square.’ Sawing pins...

Dovetails #2: Another (Improved) Hacksaw Attempt

04-01-2012 02:08 AM by stroml | 2 comments »

Just thought I’d give y’all an update since my first disaster. I chose to forgo the dull chisel this time and just went with the hacksaw, vise, and pencil. This time was much better as far as fit, but still pretty fugly. I’d give it a 4.5/10 as opposed to a 1/10 I would have given my last adventure. Here are some action shots. Cutting new tails (notice the first ones I did on the opposite end). Now the pins with my new and improved #2 marking device. Why didn’...

Tool Chest #4: Chest Done

03-31-2012 05:33 PM by JaLatham | 10 comments »

Its kind of a jump from my last post, and I had tons of other pics of the construction. But the computer with all those pics died. So these new ones are what I have left. THe rest of the build was pretty staightforward. I dovetailed a narrow skirt around the lid. Then used a chisel and router plane to make the mortises for the hinges. Then with the lid on, I nailed in drawer runners, and made three drawers to fit. For drawer pulls I got some steel rings and cotter pins from a big box store, p...

Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #3: Jointing the carcase stock

03-31-2012 03:06 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 11 comments »

Used the #8 to get one good edge, ‘cause the boards needed help: Measured set (max) width to repeat on each board, 10 7/8”, tranferred it to the panel panel gauge, and marked the other edges of each board… Fasten the stuff to the bench and joint it for staight and width to the scored line. #5 jack goes to town. NOW we’re good to move forward… From jointing to joinery!

Lessons Learned #1: Star Trek and Pine warping

03-29-2012 03:57 PM by Rha7 | 4 comments »

Yeah pine warping, not time warping, but since I’m a fan, I think my pine wood got confused and decided to start warping, this project became a mess, I had to set up a second rail in the bottom to force it straight, it doesn’t look all that bad once in it’s place, but I should have read before that “buy the wood the day you’ll use it” or something like that… I? still have lots and lots to learn, my wife? she stills pretends not to notice.
