Tool Cabinet Build #14: Cabinet Doors #1

04-04-2015 01:45 AM by Airframer | 7 comments »

Welp, today I got started on the doors for the cabinet. First though while the wife and I were at our local dollar store I grabbed a couple sheets of foam project panels to use as a layout planner for the interior spaces. This will help to show how the cabinet is divided up better I think. The front is for an assortment of tools.. And behind the interior wall is the saw till accessed by the small tambour doors on either side of the case.. If my measuring is correct I should...

Spring Projects Time! #2: A fairly productive (for me...) day!

04-04-2015 12:12 AM by SawdustyDan | 2 comments »

Another mostly nice day in Bellevue! Kinda blustery, so I had to keep either the garage door or the people door closed, to prevent the winds from blowing the dust and other bits around my enclosed landfill – a.k.a. my garage-shop – and messing up the in-work finishes. But, it was sunny most of the time and I had the birds and squirrels to keep me company! As I said, I was actually kind of productive today. I’ve been bitten by the tea light candle holder bug and am trying ...

Another pile of pine #2: Part 3: mortise and tenons and dovetails, oh my!

04-03-2015 09:10 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Floated down to the shop this morning. Actually felt like doing….something. Started off by cleaning the workbench off. Toolwell had filled up with who knows what. Couldn’t even stick a finger in there without finding the pointy end of a nail. So.. Looks a bit better? As for the trash.. Somewhere in there, was a plastic foot one nails onto the ends of a leg. My shoe found it, of course. Well after the removal of a nail… Got after the tenons that needed to ...

Basement to a REAL Basement Shop #2: Dust Collection

04-03-2015 04:44 PM by JAY Made | 2 comments »

Wow! It has been a very busy couple of weeks. Last year I purchased the 2hp Harborfreight dust collector. I knew I was not going to use it in it’s stock configuration, I knew I wanted to set it up like Jay Bates did. So when I first got the DC I crammed it in a spot out of the way, to the right of the DC was the chimney, to the left was a bunch of Junk. I moved it to the NW corner of the basement. The blower is mounted on top of the factory ring and is exsausted to t...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1529: Cute as a Bug

04-03-2015 01:05 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

I often write about a place in my mind where I see very vivid visions of projects that I want to design. While it may sound strange to you all, it honestly is the truth and truly exists. This is the reason that I wake up so excited most mornings!  I can't wait to start each day and one by one bring each of these projects to 'life'. While I know it isn't always possible, I WISH you all could see the hundreds (yes – HUNDREDS) of spectacular things that I have pla...

Thorsen House Cabinet #10: First cabinet door...."J'adore/j'ai a door"

04-03-2015 10:36 AM by EläväPuu | 0 comments »

Apologies for mangling French irretrievably there just to force out a pun…. The doors presented a few logistical challenges. Surprisingly, the internal rebate angles were the least of these. The largest challenge was in the form of how best to clamp the main outer frame whilst gluing. The frame comprises morticed hinge and lock stiles with two tenoned upper/lower rails. (the mortice and tenon sizes increased in height which the drawing does not indicate) Prior to any shapin...

Tool Cabinet Build #13: Getting Back At It...

04-03-2015 02:28 AM by Airframer | 3 comments »

Aside from this being the second longest build on LJ’s next to Stef’s workbench build, I have finally started back to work on this cabinet. We last left off with me finding out that I need to learn front from back. The rabbets cut for the back were actually done on the front of the top and bottom panels. After a year and a half of pretending the problem would fix it’s self I finally ripped the offending section off and glued up a new strip of wood. Cut a couple new dov...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1528: Progress

04-02-2015 12:02 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It is another beautiful and sunny morning here on the bank of the Meteghan river. The air is calm and there isn't a cloud in the sky. Little by little the huge piles of snow is receding and we are able to see brownish patches of what promises to be green grass.  Spring is definitely on its way. It has been a long winter for us here in Nova Scotia. As with many other parts of the world, we seemed to have our fill of ice and snow. The past several years we have had mild winters, a...

The clock is composed of 3 parts and each of them will be restored in 3 sessions. We will start with the top We remove the bronzes The unglued brass pieces are lifted and rubbing is made for the missing brass elements The cavities are full of oxidized glue that nee...
