Cherry Daybed

1786 days ago by Ryan Brown | 6 comments »

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 ...

Out in the shop #1: Upper Shop Cabinets $36.70

786 days ago by MichaelAgate | 8 comments »

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...

Video: French Cleat Finishing Supply Rack + Free Plans

162 days ago 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

Hanging Shorts Storage

1935 days ago by sIKE | 12 comments »

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.

Storage Beds #1: First Project in a Long Time

879 days ago by gubawatts | 0 comments »

I found some great ideas for building storage beds for our two boys on the internet, at Ana White Homemaker. After studying these plans for a bit, I decided I wanted to make some changes, mainly to upgrade the joinery methods and make the base cabinets deeper, so they met in the middle under the box spring. So, here’s what I came up with after learning google sketchup, and going through a few design revisions. This bed is basically made up of several box cabinets that will be bolted ...

Entertainment Center #4: Base, Shelves, and Top

1156 days ago by Marc | 1 comment »

I’ve got my own site where I like to write about my projects so rather than duplicate them here I’ll just provide a little teaser. If you’d like to read the full post just click here. As promised, I completed the base of the entertainment center this time, along with a couple of other little details. The base is just made up of four corner blocks and four rails screwed together with some pocket screws. The corner blocks were actually pretty easy to make although…

1508 days ago by clieb91 | 3 comments »

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...

Murphy Bed #10: Outside Cabinet Verticals, Headboard, & Header

1915 days ago by Gene47 | 1 comment »

After a couple of days of mowing grass, moving all the plants out of the greenhouse/paint booth and cleaning up things I managed to get back in the shop and do some work today. After all the clean up I took the assembled frame and moved it to the cleaned out section that I have up front in the shop. I originally enclosed a 10×10 section with heavy plastic so LOML can bring her plants in to winter over. I then proceeded to cut the outer Cabinet Verticals, Headboard and Header Board ...
