Drawing bookshelf plan #1: Trying to learn SketchUp!

04-26-2008 03:18 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 16 comments »

About 3 days before the bookcase challenge, I thought I’d try my luck at drawing a plan for this bookshelf. I made this to fit in a corner of Barb’s little library in our basement. I purchased some MDF plastic clad oak pattern shelf boards, & I had some old stair balusters from a dilapidated house that was raised. I set them up in my lathe, & turned 3/4” tenons in the middle before I cut them in half.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~...

Wine Rack Expedition #3: Dowling and.... more dowling

03-26-2009 07:26 AM by Demowen | 2 comments »

Well, unfortunately there isn’t a whole lot of content to go through for this step since it is pretty much doing the same thing over and over again. I marked out on the legs where I want the rails to go. I had to alter some measurements from the plans since the rails are now 3.5” instead of 4” wide. I wanted to get all of the front and side pieces out of the same board and this was the price I paid. No biggie, will look about the same in the end. So the lines were all...

My TINY shop renovation #4: Back to the drawing board

01-13-2013 04:39 AM by StayinBroke | 0 comments »

Well, I have to thank forum member Gregn for going and messing with my plans. Lol. The vertical drawer idea he presented me with may be just the thing I need. They will create a lot more usable storage space , and there’s so many ways to customize these things for shop storage. The only limit is your imagination. Drawers, shelves, pegboard, pegboard and shelves, shelves and drawers, bins and shelves, Ding! light bulb!, I wonder if I can make that work, I’ll have to explore that id...

Nightstand for CPAP Machine #2: Improved material usage

10-15-2011 11:53 PM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 0 comments »

I did some changes to try and get most of the pieces for two nightstands from one sheet of Oak plywood. I have a subcompact car so I had the guy at Lowes Depot cut the wood into four pieces (2 ft x 4 ft each) with the grain running the 4 ft direction. Here’s a link to the Sketchup file . To get the material to mostly fit, I eliminated the two lower shelves. Here’s a link to the picture .

Shop & Tool Growing Pains #1: New House, No Tools

Driveby shooting, armed home invasions, police helicopters, etc… Needless to say, we decided to move back home. We’re both from New England, so coming back was good f...
