Pocket hole problems

07-06-2014 07:25 AM by clhnsn | 6 comments »

So I was building some drawers today with my long coveted pocket hole jig and kreg pocket hole screws. After watching numerous videos over the years I thought it would be magic in tool form – idiot proof. After struggling with shifting joints and split ends I had become all but disenchanted. So I took to the internet to look for a solution. Surely I couldn’t be the only one with this problem. Sure enough there were others. And yet other’s had answers. Clamps!!! (Alway...

Video: French Cleat Finishing Supply Rack + Free Plans

02-11-2014 02:25 PM by JSB | 3 comments »

Hello lumberjocks. I’m in the process of getting more organized with the use of a French cleat system in my shop. My latest addition is a finishing supply rack. It holds 32 cans of spray paint, 15 quart size cans, and some more finishing supplies. The benefit is that you can always see what you have at first glance. For those who are interested here is the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXc5jk2Do1s

Office #9: Dimensional Furniture 6b

01-08-2014 02:42 AM by clieb91 | 1 comment »

I was able to almost entirely complete the printer stand today. I say almost as I have to cut two shelves for it that will be adjustable. I am saving that for later in the week as I have a large sheet of plywood I will have to cut for a table top and I will cut the shelves at the same time. This unit is made from 2×4s, and 1/2” plywood. The adjustable shelves I wan to be a little sturdier since they will be holding paper and such so they will be 3/4” plywood. All of th...

Garage Tool Cabinets #1: Size and Materials Planning

07-31-2013 03:05 PM by Parsimonia | 3 comments »

So after making a large workshop upper cabinet, and then a glass door cabinet, I decided to start making more cabinets to store garden tools in the garage. While I’m at it, I decided to make two, one for long handled tools, and another with shelves for smaller stuff. I made the previous cabinets with maple, and it seems like a waste of money to make a garden tool cabinet out of relatively expensive wood, but hey, if I’m going to all the trouble, it might as well look good. I al...

Dresser / Chainging Station #3: Progress!

08-09-2012 12:07 PM by Andrew | 0 comments »

Have been busy since the last entry, wedding, getting new windows ordered, Bradley class, phew! Made some progress on the dresser last night. Most of the more time consuming cuts were done. I needed to cut 1/2” plywood to use for the floors in the drawer holes. I wanted to use plywood so I could place a runner in the middle of the shelf for the drawer to slide on. I’ll also put some sliders on the ends of the drawers as well. The sliders will be made from some scrap white oak. ...

Matthew and I were going to do a video this weekend but got side tracked with the need for storage. Things are piling up and disorder is setting in. Time to get things in order a little. Last week I added a drawing for shop cabinets to the free plans section on www.thenewfoundlandwoodworker.com . They are very basic, and cheap. This is them :)Mind the doors, they are stuck on with double faced tape for now. Hinges Monday Cabinet Size14 1/4×33 1/4 Materials1 sheet 5/8 D grade pl...
