Just some photos of the main build:
A quickie post I didn’t mention making the red Oak pieces to latch behind the lower lip of the cabinet before. These are just big enough to fit below the lower shelf . The article in the magazine mentions making these the full length to subdue expansion, but I have breadboard ends for that. I measured and marked where the batten guides need to go, with a brain fart or two. You will probably notice a few holes in a picture or two where I mounted them where they didnt need to be. ...
I didn’t write the final post last week as I was pretty busy with my 20th wedding anniversary. Last weekend I had planned on flattening the tops on my last day off but only got half of it done. I had decided to use the router to flatten it, using a sled and rails. I saw the technique on the Wood Whisperer video and thought it was a good idea. So I went to the big box and got two 2×6 kiln dried 8’ long boards for the rails. The first thing it to make the edges straight and ...
We had some nice weather today so the shop door was opened and sanding and finishing of the second door commenced. Once that was done they both got a good waxing along with the channels. Then the back was glued in place and with some accidental interior squeeze out issues cleaned up I now have a functional saw till with two tambour access doors. So easy a toddler can use ‘em lol. He spent the next 10 minutes opening and closing them. He even moved his saw into the ...
Well, last seen, that Island Project needed a door installed. Boss brought home a pair of oversized hinges of brass plated slendour. Then we went back out and found a magnetic catch to hold the thing closed. First off, the installed door.. Plywood had bowed a bit, in the wrong directions. Block plane to shave a few spots. Tried the catch at the top near the knob….didn’t catch. Ok, we’ll try at the bottom. Got the magnet part on. and the plate on…..F sty...
A lot has happened since the last update just nothing that looks like much of anything has been done lol. I hate that kind of progress but it must be made to move forward. Yesterday I was able to finish up cutting and fitting the track for the doors to ride in. Something that should be done before one of the panels is immovable… yeah.. that got a bit tricky but with the help of some brass stock and some juice cans I got it all glued up successfully. After tha...
Good day to you all! I am happy to say that I awoke today to NO snow! (There IS hope!) I state that half-jokingly because even though I love living in an area with four seasons – and I love them ALL – I have just about had my fill of the white stuff for a while. Each morning it seems we were waking up to another 2-3 inches of snow, and while it usually disappeared by the afternoon, it was a little disheartening all the same. The forecast ahead shows temperatures above freezi...
The two previous images are from 4 weeks ago before i left for work. The back was done up with pine i had on hand. Unfortuently as i was installing the last couple boards i noticed they had developed some twist and that i had a knot too close to an edge. I decided while at work i would replace with my remaining poplar that i was saving for another project.After returning home and replacing the upper 3 planks. Then i proceeded to glue up panels for my top and the fall front.The finished glu...
You know – there are days when I really do get mixed up! (Yes – I know! Some of you think EVERY day!) With all the different things I am doing and all the calendars, dates and reminders that I give myself, sometimes things do happen to slip by my steel trap of a mind. I suppose I am only human! Last autumn, I created a painting pattern that turned out to be one of my favorites. It was a bit 'darker' than my usual cheerful pieces, but I think that is what I liked ...
Okay, first picture is the new HF 2HP dust collector, it was on sale, I had a 20% off coupon, when I didn’t want to give my phone number, he offered a free 2 year protection package and an additional discount. I walked out of there with this for $125.00.Second third and fourth picture show the Thien baffle I made for it. I just held it place from the sides with some drywall screws. Fifth picture shows it with the bag onSixth picture shows the main vacuum tube running up to the 4&...
