In this video I talk about how to make repeatable cuts using a stop block and how the miter joints are the best jointey option for the project. I also cut all the 2×4s and start assembly. Now all I did to assembly it was just glueing the divider pieces and screwing them in

A non-plywood 4 drawer filing cabinet #1: The design

04-30-2014 09:29 AM by GCM | 0 comments »

Here is my attempt to build an affordable wooden 4 drawer filing cabinet. I rule out: Plwood, as it is way too expensive in Australia for anything but the most expensive style of furniture.MDF, I built a single draw prototype and, even when using frame construction, it was way too heavy.Melamine, may be a good choice but for this project I don’t think it looks good enough.Solid wood, as it is too expensive. My current choice is to go with premium (knot free) pine and pine panel...

Desk #1: Design of Desk

09-16-2012 08:27 PM by ilyac | 2 comments »

I saw a desk I thought looked really nice on one of those flash deal websites a few weeks ago, and when I saw the price tag on it, and that it was made out of MDF I decided I could do better. I changed the design from the original with a few of my own details to add a little something to it. Namely the wedged mortise and tendon joints to connect the legs to the top with ebony wedges (just for a bit of contrast), and a thicker glued up top than the desk I saw. I also added holed along the b...

Bridal chest #1: Prep / glue-up

07-18-2014 06:46 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 5 comments »

My youngest daughter is getting married in September. I’ve decided long ago that i’d make each (I’ve got two) a bridal chest when that time came. Well it’s here and I’m doing it. I’ve made blanket chests before but they’ve been made with raised panels. This one is much simpler. Almost Shaker in nature for the design. It will have large finger or box joints at the corners. I think I’ll make a simple jig for my router to accomplish that. It will b...

BE AN EXPERT WOODWORKER #1: A Z-mitre Expert

01-21-2014 02:59 PM by BertFlores58 | 6 comments »

There are so many ways on becoming an expert but as to what expertise it will be is difficult. The skill is a proficiency that needs practice and practice. Here are some of the expertise when dealing with woodworking. USING MITER JOINTSI was really moved by the way Martyn (Britboxmaker) have introduced the miter joint by using the 45 degree router bit. This is the most accurate way of making a box having a 90 degree folds on the sides. Any method will do. The first one let me do it ...

A Custom Furniture Scheme

11-13-2013 12:58 PM by Stephen Mines | 5 comments »

My furniture business (Stephen Mines Custom, No. Hollywood, CA,) did routinely build totally custom furniture, but the mainstay that paid the bills and made the business a financial success was a LINE of custom furniture. Yeah, I know, sounds like a contradiction, but really wasn’t. Averaging round 30-40 pieces (Country French, English, Early American) my catalog allowed the customer or their designer/decorator to order to their specific dimensions, distress preference (including none) ...
