Hey Everyone! The left side of my kitchen is really beginning to look like a kitchen. I am gettiing very excited, because the next step we are taking tommoro, is putting my kitchen sink in….......YAY!!! I have three more cabinets to build. Two upper that go on each side of my stove, the third goes above my refridgerator. The two upper cabinets that go on each side of my stove are 60 inches long. They fit on the top of my countertops. My husband is installing granite tile for my c...
I’m lazy and like to use computers to do things for me, so I threw this together quickly. =) I wanted to make some Sawmill Creek style cutting boards, sized to fit in a medium flat rate box, and didn’t feel like doing the math. (Cutting board tutorial here: http://www.sawmillcreek.org/articles/2/) The length doesn’t matter, but you need to take into account kerf size and such when figuring how much wood you need to make these, and I made it calculate the blade offset...
This is the plan and mock-up I did in Sketchup for my son’s art table for xmas. It took quite a few hours as I am OK, but not proficient with Sketchup ( although I’m much better after this project ). I rough sketched the original with graph paper as I usually do to work out what’s in my head, but I saved the detail for Sketchup. So I figure I spent 3-4 hours with paper and 8 hours with Sketchup as opposed to 5 hours total on paper. The 2 big advantages were I was able to ...
Just found this nifty site, joined and wanted to say hello and to thank all of the welcomes… I am a neophyte woodworker, only been playing at it for about 30 years. Nothing major just piddling in the shop. Current shop consists of Delta 14” bandsaw, Rigid table saw, Rigid jointer, Delta planer, Rockler router table, Delta drill press, Delta dust system, Dewalt miter saw, and a Dewalt scroll saw along with assorted power and hand tools. Currently working on bandsawn boxes for...
I’ve always heard that—if, for example, you’re going to quit smoking—it helps to tell everybody you know that you’re going to quit, and on what date you’re going to quit. It helps get you committed (something that’s been talked about, in my case, for years!). So … here I go. My next ww project is a Shaker Style night stand. Actually, it’s two: his and hers. I’m going to build mine first, so I can butcher IT, and then tra...
Hello again! This time, I give dimensions and most important drawings of the components.I have a strip of plywood in my previous project (15×20mm) so I use this.All dimensions are in millimeters. here is the drawing for fitting the side of the box Next time, cut out parts:)
I had a lot of different papers on the table.my wife told me to clean up these.I decided to do a document box for them.So I made the first drawingIt must be suitable for my desk You’ll see it here.I plan to use the 6 and 15 mm thick plywood.Next time, few details:)
My first, very basic project, will be a keyholder. My rough sketch: I’ve already got the wood. I’ll be picking up some router bits this weekend so that I can round the edges. Updates to follow.
Hey guys, so I have been away for awhile, but I am all settled into my new place, cut off 14 inches of hair, sold a car, bought a motorcycle, got promoted on my job and ready to start woodworking again in my new garage. I am about to start on a “settee” I called it a couch, but I was corrected… LOL not much on fancy names… Any tips to look out for? This is going to be something that is used regularly…. so delicate is not good – any support bracing ideas?...
This will only happen in the spring but I just wanted to show off my latest acquisition that I’ll be modifying.Next August (22nd) will be my wife’s and my 30th anniversary. We love road trips, traveling, and state and national parks so we purchased a small camper after a search on craigslist. It’s a great little camper and in the spring I’m going to rebuild the inside and then the 30+ day trip outlining specific places throughout the country. We’re starting in Ma...
