Why buy it when you can make it! #16: Dresser Rehab [Part 4] - Almost finished...well finished but some assembly required

10-12-2014 08:22 PM by paxorion | 1 comment »

After an unexpectedly long detour detour to get my ducks in a row for my daughter's birthday party, I finally got to spraying on the paint for the dresser rehab. This was no easy feat, as I had to tackle two major roadblocks. I needed to get over my fear of trying out a HVLP. Since I was using a Harbor Freight HVLP, I wasn’t sure how well it would work. I had to get my wife to mix the paint color she wants out of the 3 cans of General Finishes milk paint we bought a while back. ...

NOT your average screen door: more chopping work

10-12-2014 05:49 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Time to work on the other rail. Cleared the bench of the other items, they found a home on the panel blanks for now. Someone asked about the use of Visegrip Finger clamps Well, they work very nicely for the mortise jig I have. Anyway, a little better layout this time around. Last time, the mortises were too close to the ends. NORMALLY, one would leave a “horn” on each end, then saw off the excess when things were done. OOPS, well, I decided to move the mortise IN a ...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #8: The Dungeon: Before Construction of a Woodworking Shop

10-12-2014 02:45 PM by technoslick | 12 comments »

Our house was built in 1900, as close as the public records will tell. I know many of you are living in homes quite a bit older, especially in the U.K. and Europe, that are in much better shape than ours. The difference is where this home was built and what for. At that time in our local history, Norwich was a sizable hub for railroad traffic. Down at the East end of our street is an embankment that once looked over an large train yard with an engine turn-circle/round house. Across the street...

Building a wall hanging tool cabinet #4: Hanging tool cabinet #4:

10-12-2014 04:09 AM by exelectrician | 9 comments »

Starting at the bottom I decided on three drawers, here are the parts for one drawer And the finished drawers in the cabinet. For the pulls, I used ebony piano keys cut down, drilled and tapped, and fastened with 6-24 screws. To create a chisel till, I decided to use double roller catches repurposed, to hold the chisels firmly in place on my door. Here I am screwing on the catches and next pic, the finished product – I am happy so far… Checking to see If the door clears ...

This is a real time blog of a project that I am presently making. If you wish to copy it please wait until I have posted the finished project before doing so. Thank you.

10-11-2014 11:07 AM by littlecope | 19 comments »

The Mystery Project continues…After the Handles were attached, more details had to be attended to…It needs to be said now, that one of the suggested and agreed upon features of this Project, is that it should have “Bands” around it… Think, Steamer Trunk, sort of…To that end, the Lid’s curve was transcribed on to the Cherry Slab… While at the hardware store, and chosen out of thousands, one of their finest “Thickness Describers” wa...

NOT your average screen door#2

10-09-2014 06:30 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Well, after much cussing and fighting, got all the rails fitted to their mortises. This being the last on this side of the door. Wound up making it an open ended affair. The lock rail took the longest, and I think I traced it’s ancestry back about ten generations… Ok, when I go to assemble the door for the final time, I will install a few wedges into each tenon, then pin the joint with a couple of dowel pins. Managed to measure for the center stile, and get the measu...
