Wooden Mechanics style tool box/chest

09-12-2009 09:15 AM by tooldad | 1 comment »

This is my next project, a wooden mechanic’s style tool chest and I will have a matching top to go with it. All in all I expect about 30 drawers. At least I bought enough of the handle material to do so. My plan is full extension drawer slides. 2 1/2” drawers except for the bottom 2 rows. The top chest will have a hinged lid with shock absorber supports. If I’m going to drop a grand on a nice toolbox, I might as well build it, is my thinking. My question for the mass...

My workflow always decreases towards the end ...

09-09-2009 10:52 PM by xylosapiens | 8 comments »

Although all my previous designing, my efforts to get the piece of furniture to the very best end I can, usually met lots of minor cuestions to be solved, before finishing the job to my complete satisfaction. And this is the reason why the work sticks to the bench towards the end. Actually I’m never 100% satisfy. That’s the price I pay for the personal discoverys that represent my designs. Others don’t find it that much important, but it i...

A journey into the workshop. #1: A journey into the workshop #1. Starting over, getting organized.

09-08-2009 06:17 AM by dbhost | 2 comments »

After spending the time, money, and effort to get the equipment I need to get moving in earnest in woodworking, I am doing so. But a little background might help you dear readers to understand where I am coming from… I hated junior high, and high school. Passionately hated that entire experience with 3 major exceptions. #1. The social interactions. Some of the best friends I have ever had, I made in Junior High, and High School. I try to maintain many of those friendships even tod...

Episode 40 tablesaw setup part 1

09-03-2009 12:25 AM by kosta | 6 comments »

In this episode I setup the stand to my new skil tablesaw. Most people start off with one of these saws because they are about $120 and theywork ok. Putting the stand together is easy but reading the manual is a pain in the ass because it goes back in forth from english to spanish.I put a piece of cardboard between the saw and the stand to stop all the dust from going ton the floor. I have a full review of this saw on my website at www.kostasworkshop.blogspot.com

Tablesaw dust collection

08-28-2009 12:33 AM by kosta | 9 comments »

Yo whats up everybody so I got my skil tablesaw yesterday and it took about 3 hours to set it up and I filmed the whole thing so part 1 of that series will be out next week. I made a few cuts with the saw and it is a nice saw the only problem is there is sooooooooo much dust that goes everywhere and I didnt realize this when I got it but the entire bottom of the saw is open so what I will probably do is take the saw off the stand mount it to a piece of plywood and put a dust port on that. The...

Desk build #2: Nurses desk: Tapered Legs and mortises

08-27-2009 12:01 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 6 comments »

RecapMy niece will graduate as a nurse in the near future. She has moved into a new house and asked me for a small desk for her new flat panel iMac. I decided to make an oak desk that would be loosely based on the mission style but with side panels that would reflect her future as an RN. My goal is a small desk 48” x 29” with keyboard drawer and a small drawer. I’ll be trying my first hand made dovetails on scrap and then on to my first dovetailed drawer I put this out here, baring all for...

starting my kitchen cabinets

08-26-2009 09:29 PM by woodchic | 78 comments »

Hi everybody…....My husband finally got the floor finished…...he did a fantastic job I might add and now…..I finally sucked up enough courage to get started on my kitchen cabinets. The kitchen and dining area is 14 ft wide x 24.6 ft long. My cabinets are made of plywood and my face frames and doors are made out of hickory. I have never worked on a set of kitchen cabinets before, so I am pretty much learning this on my own. I have a friend on here that gives me advice whe...

Kitchen Furniture #1: Kitchen Table

08-26-2009 08:32 PM by Ackdaddy | 5 comments »

My wife and I bought a foreclosure about a year ago and are about 75% done with the plans that we set forth in the beginning. The kitchen is completely redone, along with the living room and our expectant baby’s nursery. The bathrooms are in process along with our bedroom. I’ve sort of taken a break from the home improvement aspect and gotten into a lot more woodworking. I find my hands to be a lot more steady than ever, and my accuracy much improved. So now I am making a k...

Structural Crack Filling

08-24-2009 11:35 PM by Ancientwood | 4 comments »

Ancientwood has developed a technique for filling large, structural cracks, sometimes found in Ancient Kauri slabs. This is a step-by-step approach for creating a flat surface with beautiful patterns and design. 1. The slab must first be flattened. This can be done with a drum sander, planer or a CNC router.2. After the slab is flat, locate cracks that need filling.3. Fill any hairline cracks with color-matched latex putty. Wet the adjacent area of the Ancient Kauri with spirits to get an a...
