Cherry File Cabinet #1: Milling frame and joinery

12-19-2014 10:34 PM by JimYoung | 0 comments »

It’s been a while since my last woodworking project, so I’m easing back into the groove with a new file cabinet. I have a piece of junk tin cabinet in my home office that squeaks every time I open and close it. I did some serving trays in Cherry, and really liked working with it, so my new file cabinet will be Cherry. I found a photo online and liked the style so I sketched it up in Sketchup and AutoCAD. The legs are 1 3/4” x 1 3/4” and the rest of the frame is 1&...

New "bench' for a router table

12-13-2014 08:01 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Last summer, I picked up a router “table” by SKIL at a garage sale. $20 with everything BUT a router Later on, picked a B&D 1/4” Industrial all metal router. Managed to assemble the two together But, there were a couple problems. First, this thing is sitting ON my tool chest. Secondly, it is too short to set on the floor. Had some metal 3×3 from an old bed frame. Cut the two pieces down into four “legs” @ 27-1/4” long. Had some ...

Designing a Christmas Wreath #4: Changed My Mind

12-12-2014 11:55 PM by KomputerMan | 0 comments »

I changed my mind about the Christmas Wreath I was building for the Festival of Trees. Even though I built three sets of ornaments for a wreath I decided to skip the wreath due to financial issues. That doesn’t mean I didn’t still build and donate something to the event because I did! I just changed my donation from a wreath to a Christmas Decor item. Actually it was a pretty fun project as I first had to make tweaks to the Santa Hat. I like how the hat turned out mysel...

Scobie Box #3: Gluing up and starting to add finish

12-09-2014 03:53 AM by icemanhank | 2 comments »

Gluing up was quite an interesting time with so many pieces to go together at once. I did the ends first then dry fitted everything to make sure all of the joints would fit up square prior to adding the glue and clamping (using the offcuts from the legs when clamping) I have added one coat of Danish Oil but need to get the lid on before I can finish the handles and add finish to them.

Coffee Table Build #9: Top

12-05-2014 12:56 AM by RoadHogg | 3 comments »

Ironically, the first thing I did for this project was to glue up the huge 42” square top…over-sized of course. A long time later, I pulled it out and began to put on the finishing touches. I bought a “Thumbnail” router bit from Lee Valley and I ran that around the edges. Of course, I worked a long time to make sure the top was square etc. I built an extended router base to help stabilize the router while routing the edge detail (thanks Mark!). I ran a 1/4...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #32: Christmas Present to myself!

12-01-2014 10:35 PM by PhilBello | 3 comments »

I decided that it was time to make something for me, and what better than a new Workbench, I have been making do, with the bench I made when living in an apartment, and had a micro workshop in a spare bedroom, now it was time for a man size bench. The pile of mahogany to the left of the saw horse leg is my bench (that on the right is still the Kiosko / Gazebo roof!) this arrived on the 19th. I then sorted the timber and cut the parts The planks on the left are the top at 2.5...

Coffee Table Build #7: Bottom Trim

11-29-2014 11:28 PM by RoadHogg | 1 comment »

Like the top trim, I created the bottom trim on my router table, this time using a large bead/roundover bit and a small bead bit. I then set up my new Incra miter gauge on the table saw and mitered the trim. The miters came out really good, but not perfect. A little filler was employed to take up the slack and I don’t think anyone will ever notice. I ran a couple of grooves on the back side of the trim due to its thickness and width. This should help stabilize it a little, so it ...

Coffee Table Build #3: Miter Locks

11-29-2014 10:53 PM by RoadHogg | 0 comments »

I haven’t updated this project blog for a long time, much has happened in that time so I’ll try to explain everything that’s gone on since the last update. This entry is about the miter lock joints I made in order to attach the four frames to one another. I didn’t want to show the edge grain of the mating stiles so I opted to miter the corners. In order to help me get the miters to lock together accurately, I decided to try a miter lock joint, for the first time. ...
