Triple Chaos #1: A CBG Called Amália, the making of

12-22-2014 09:00 PM by Serradura | 2 comments »

Well, technically it’s not a cigar-box guitar because the (new) box was made for 3 small sample bottles of booze, Port to be precise. The name Amália has everything to do with a Portuguese Fado-guitar being the inspiration for this build. More detailed pictures on Triple Chaos

Cookbook Shelf Units #8: Biscuits, shelves, prefinishing, final assembly, HOORAY!

12-22-2014 03:49 AM by Greg Guarino | 0 comments »

I’m finally finished, but I’ve fallen behind in the blog description. Biscuits for the uprights:Each upright “leg” consists of a 1×3 and a 1×2 joined at a right angle with a small shadow line. Biscuits seemed like the right method: Then I did a dry fit: Everything went together well enough, so I decided to glue up the “ladder” sides. Although I tend to prefinish everything before gluing, I decided it would be too time-consuming to pr...

Tales of a Hack #4: I was told there would be no math.

12-21-2014 09:00 AM by ajw1978 | 6 comments »

I was not what most would consider “a good student” in high school. In fact, I feel like I should be paid royalties every time the phrase “[Insert name here] would be an A student if only he’d apply himself” is used to describe an underperforming student. Math was and remains my least-favorite subject. I hated algebra with every ounce of my soul and pretty much stunk up the room in every math class I ever took. In my many failed attempts at college, I was assi...

Thorsen House Cabinet #5: Finalising the carcasswork

12-20-2014 04:54 PM by EläväPuu | 0 comments »

Hi everyone – this post is more of a basic check-in than a large amount of progress. The build date on this project is still not set purely because I have other projects of higher priority. Specifically, I have a Gamble House dining room table and chairs to build. So anyway. This project will be pushed along through the design process whilst that one is playing out with perhaps a degree of crossover on when it will happen. Perhaps spring 2015? Based on my observations of the original...

Working title - LLB #8: Closing Time

12-20-2014 12:40 PM by BritBoxmaker | 6 comments »

Just a short blog as there’s not much left to do. I need to cut the slots to accept the bottom. The end stop is cunningly sized so that the sides with legs don’t foul it. Slot 1.6 mm deep. Final tape up ready for gluing and glued up (PVA) with the top taped on (but obviously not glued) to maintain the box shape whilst drying. Next time you see it will be when I’ve taken the top edges down a bit with 600 grit (they are razor sharp at the moment...

Childs Play #6: Small Tool Chest #2.. Done Just Need to Finish..

12-20-2014 05:33 AM by Airframer | 6 comments »

I am not exactly sure how I pulled this off in 8 days but I have finished up the build portion of the chest and tomorrow will be putting some finish on it. With the speed of the build I didn’t get as many pics as I had hoped but here is a series that picks up where the last entry left off to present. I hope to have this up in the projects section tomorrow sometime :D The lid ended up slightly smaller than the case (I measured once and cut twice so ...

Path To A New Workshop #4: Top Layer, Pegboard, and Other Stuff

12-20-2014 03:40 AM by Vactet | 0 comments »

So the last few days have proven to be highly productive. Before moving the workbench to its final position I decided to ahead and hang the pegboard as not having 2’ of desk between you and the wall helps.I decided on doing an 8’ long by 35” high pegboard. Its significantly smaller than my previous 4’x8’ pegboard. There is roughly about a foot between the top of the pegboard and the ceiling. I plan to put a shelf up there to hold plastic boxes like my Kreg kit...

Cherry File Cabinet #1: Milling frame and joinery

12-19-2014 10:34 PM by JimYoung | 0 comments »

It’s been a while since my last woodworking project, so I’m easing back into the groove with a new file cabinet. I have a piece of junk tin cabinet in my home office that squeaks every time I open and close it. I did some serving trays in Cherry, and really liked working with it, so my new file cabinet will be Cherry. I found a photo online and liked the style so I sketched it up in Sketchup and AutoCAD. The legs are 1 3/4” x 1 3/4” and the rest of the frame is 1&...

G&G Blanket Chest Build #2: Understanding the plans

12-19-2014 03:44 PM by Ottacat | 2 comments »

Before starting this project, I wanted to ensure that I fully understood the plans and all the work required. In terms of fully understanding the plans this involved reading and re-reading the article by Darrell Peart in FWW several times. I wanted to ensure I was intimately familiar with all the components, their details, how to make them and how to put them together. As I looked over the plans and went over each part in my mind I realized there were a couple of parts of the plans and ins...
