Kitchen Remodel #1: Buffet and Hutch

05-28-2007 05:43 AM by Karson | 6 comments »

My wife says I can’t do anything else before I start on her Kitchen. Well except for her hall table and ??. Of course there is also the Summer Contest. This is going to be a multiple phase project. I need to do something with the floor. We are on a cement slab floor and it is killing both of our legs. The kitchen had a Pergo floor when we bought the house, but we had a frozen water line before we moved in and the Pergo floor got curled edges, so it was all pulled up. I don’t...

Shop Remodel #13: Oo La La!

12-07-2015 12:43 AM by bearkatwood | 8 comments »

la grande construction, Oo La La!Today was very French. French cleat that is. I set the cabinet to the wall using french cleats and made a set for the inside of the cabinet. There will probably be some that hang down from the shelf below, but the cleats should take care of most tools for the back wall. A series of custom hangars will be made to facilitate hanging tools. This way as things change I can rearrange the cabinet. I experimented by making a flat plate to hang someth...

Shop in Turmoil

04-27-2010 07:45 AM by DustyNewt | 6 comments »

I have numerous projects going on. In short, all my horizontal surfaces have gone missing and it is standing room only. Here are some over-alls from the front door. This is the main cause of the melee’. We have decided to toy with silver soldering and jewelry. So, this area of our shrinking shop is being converted to a jeweler’s bench with acetylene torch, flex shaft tool, and all those other cool tools that jewelers use.I will have to find a new home for all that hardwa...

Shop Remodel #8: It's Monday, Back to the Ole Grind.

12-01-2015 12:41 AM by bearkatwood | 14 comments »

It’s Monday and it’s back to the ole grind I go. This is another blog in my ongoing series to remodel my shop and make a saw till, drill press cabinet, tool cabinet, plane till and workbench. I have been woodworking for 16+ years and have always done my work in dark, dusty caves on anything that would resemble a bench. I have finally decided to spoil myself and go hog wild doing it. I wanted to bring you all along as I made these pieces as it will be a very epic build. I have ...

Kitchen Remodel #1: Kitchen Remodel - Phase 1 Design

03-19-2008 06:38 PM by SteveV | 4 comments »

Kitchen Remodel – New pics added… Well, March is here and the shop is now open. I had planned to have the design of the new kitchen finished but it’s not. What a great use of the winter down time but the design process has been long and hard fought with my wife. We have very different tastes and I was just happy to agree on the cabinet style but where to put them and what type of hardware has been the road block. Oh yeah then came the gut and redo of the down stairs b...

Shop Remodel #9: Look Ma, I made a square.

12-02-2015 01:42 AM by bearkatwood | 6 comments »

It is only Tuesday and I am tired. I have been feeling under the weather lately, but I made some decent progress today. I put the saw till aside for now and will get back to it when I am ready to carve the next piece as well in the interest of efficiency. I worked up a piece of Paruvian Walnut that had been sitting in the back of the shop for the case top and bottom of the tool cabinet. I chose to do it next as I wait for my bench hardware to arrive. I could have definitely used a moxon vise ...

Kitchen Cabinets #1: Getting Started

05-05-2011 02:35 PM by AnthonyC | 7 comments »

Well it is finally starting: my job has relaxed a bit in workload, I have the tools, a design, and some of the raw materials. Time to build an entire kitchen! The home is an older, but not historic farmhouse colonial (~1970’s construction). Kitchen is about 15’ x 20’ and opens up to the family room, since I blew out the wall separating them. Style:We purchased a John Boos oval butcher block island as a centerpiece. The style will be a traditional colonial (simple, ...

Shop renovation

03-03-2013 03:14 AM by iminmyshop | 8 comments »

I retired about 1 1/2 years ago and planned to spend much more time in my shop. Until then, I’d spend 10 minutes here and 30 minutes there on a project as I could. Redoing my kitchen was exactly a two year project to the day. Finding time to fix up the shop itself was not in the cards so I never even thought about it. In the winter I “preheated” the shop by leaving the door to the house open until it was at least a balmy 50 degrees or so then used a little tiny space heat...

Complete Shop Remodel #4: Final Steps

03-18-2009 05:30 PM by jackd942 | 2 comments »

I can hardly believe it…the end is near. I have begun painting the inside of the shop and after much hassle (OSB and paint do not work well together) I am just about to finish this project up. The first paint I applied looked good the evening I applied it, but when I went back out to the shop the next day to admire it, you could hardly tell it had been painted at all! There was just a light chalky film in the area I had painted. So back to the drawing board. After a little research, I w...

Who Let The Dogs Out?

01-09-2016 12:58 AM by bearkatwood | 8 comments »

Hidie Ho there neighbors. Today I was able to get the rest of the wood for the top milled up and it is taking shape; all be it an unusual one with multiple levels. I just can’t do anything the easy way can I ? About half way through the day I wondered about what I would use for the front. I wanted something showy obviously. I remembered I had a piece of Birdseye hidden away in the attic vault. How’s this for a well traveled piece of wood; when I lived in West Virginia I too...
