Well get this done, despite my best efforts. The design I posted works well. I did make a couple of changes though. It is deeper than originally planed. The other is on the back inside bottom I used my pocket hole jig to make a couple of 1”x1” runners for the plywood to screw into. I also used the same thing up front to create a lip. It is working as planned, I have freed up an entire shelf on my Rack that is on my wall.
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...
My wife wanted a daybed that we could put in one of our spare bedrooms for when we have more than one couple stay the night. We searched high and low, but couldn’t find anything that we liked. So, I downloaded Google SketchUp and started playing around. My wife and I both like the arts and crafts and shaker styles, so that’s more or less what I based it on. It’s not true to form, since I had a tight deadline on getting it done, so no mortise and tenon joints. I ...
Hello folks! Hope all have had a wonderful Christmas. Mine has been hectic but overall a great year. I’ll keep it brief as it is late… I received two notable woodworking gifts this year. The first is a Bosch CS20 Circular saw. A circular saw has been on my list as a future purchase and I had no clue I would be getting one. It came from my grandfather and all indications so far show it to be an excellent piece of equipment. It is stout unit and I look forward to making som...
I just got home from my visit to the ER followed by a stay in a hospital bed. That was not very enjoyable. Neither were to two days leading up to the decision to go to the ER at 9:30 Tuesday night. However, when I got home today, I found that Amazon had delivered my new Kreg Master System. I can’t wait to put it to work. (I’ll have to wait a while since I’m not back to 100% quite yet.) Once I get some good use with this tool, I’ll try to remember to post a re...
I went into the shop today to finish up a blanket chest. I ended up making a step stool….Here are some pictures and a video.
Well it has not been as long between furniture projects as the last time but still a bit. This time I am working on my ottoman. I have finished assembling the frame this evening and plan to work on the finishing and the upholstered top this week with a little sewing help from my wife. Here is here a few pics of what has happened so far. The paper you see at the top are my basic plans. I am really bad at plans, this or a general layout in PowerPoint are how I do most of my planning. Fr...
Step by step build of this blanket chest. (edit: I hit the easy button, no cutout on the base) Feedback is welcomed!
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...
I know it has been almost a month but it has been a busy one.. with a little time here and there I was able to finish the base desk. I put the last coat of poly on it last night and was able to move it in to the office this afternoon and get that temporary desk moved out of the way. I will be taking it apart and recycling it into new furniture for DW new sewing room. The new desk fit in place great and I am now working on figuring out the next step which will more then likely be my...
