Hope Chest for Daughter #2 #1: Design approved and construction details planned out....

196 days ago by Mainiac Matt | 11 comments »

Daughter #2 has “approved” the design of her hope chest. Here’s my rendered solid model…. I started from the same NYWS that I used for her sisters, but with the following skill builder changes: 1. outside edges will be joined with Lock Miter instead of tongue tenon and groove.2. rails and styles will be profiled and joined with a cope cut instead of mortise and tenon .3. panels will be raised and back cut instead of flat.4. feet will be cut with a taper, ins...

Building a Dr. White's Chest #8: Hanging Doors

472 days ago by DustyMark | 0 comments »

Mortising the HingesHanging doors involves a mixture of precise work and some trial and error. The first step is to choose a hinge and then mortise the case frame to receive the hinge. A common approach for hinge placement is to locate the top of the upper hinge even with the bottom of the upper rail and locate the bottom of the lower hinge even with the top of the lower rail of the door frame. I should have thought ahead and routed these mortises before assembling the case. However, I fo...

Building a Dr. White's Chest #7: Raised Panel Doors

473 days ago by DustyMark | 2 comments »

Raised Panel DoorsBuilding a set of raised panel doors might seem like a daunting process. However, it’s simply a sequence of steps that, granted, use most of the tools in a serious hobbyist’s wood shop. Wood movement is an issue here since the panel grain runs perpendicular to the grain of the top and bottom rails of the door frame. Watch this video to see how to build a raised panel door in one 25-minute video. This blog entry also includes links to eight individual videos that highligh...

Tombstone Doors, easier than I thought!

571 days ago by Oldtool | 5 comments »

When building my wife’s new chest on chest cabinet, I decided to add a little something a little different than the plans that I had on hand, which would be new to me & adds a new challenge for me overcome. The basic plan for this storage cabinet came from Glenn Huey’s book “fine Furniture for a lifetime”, the Chippendale Entertainment Center. This same piece of furniture is featured in another of his book by Popular Woodworking, “Design & Build Your Ideal Entertainment Center”, and i...

Sweet Chest of Drawers Build #6: Why the heck would I do this to myself?

629 days ago by Kyle | 4 comments »

Ever hear the expression, “you are what you eat?” Well, the day I decided to do this, I must have eaten a whole box of ding dongs. For some strange reason, I decided to figure out what I wanted to do with the back, before I started with the front. Why? Well, I don’t know. .....Instead of doing what any sane person would do, I chose to make the back, just like I made the sides… Frame and panel. Seriously… I know it’s going to be up against the wall but, mayb...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #19: "Raise your panel!" Who knew you could do THAT with a hand plane + another contest!

859 days ago by StumpyNubs | 24 comments »

I don’t know why anyone would want to skin a cat, but I hear there is more than one way to do it. The same is true with raised panels, you know, the ones we use on all our fancy cabinet doors… So this week Stumpy tries to make one with nothing but a Stanley #4 hand plane… ...then he decides to make a machine to do it for him! Before all is said an done we have a new jig that does far more than it was originally intended to, and Stumpy is telling us the next best thing ...

( beetle bore holes, knots, etc.) Id like to showcase in the project. With that being said. Here is my qu...
