Desk build #1: Small Oak Nurses Desk

1694 days ago by Craftsman on the lake | 1 comment »

My niece will graduate as a nurse in the near future. She has moved into a new house and asked me for a small desk for her new flat panel iMac. I decided to make an oak desk that would be loosely based on the mission style but with side panels that would reflect her future as an RN. My goal is a small desk 48” x 29” with keyboard drawer and a small drawer. I’ll be trying my first hand made dovetails on scrap and then on to my first dovetailed drawer I put this out here, ...

Working out the design.

1258 days ago by nobuckle | 0 comments »

First I’d like to thank all those who have provided insight into how I might be able to attach my router table top to my table saw. The suggestions made have given me a number of ideas. Who knows, it may come to the point where I incorporate all the ideas in one way or another. At any rate, I really appreciate it. I created a 3d model of a suggested design and then posted it as a pic into a message in order to see if I had the correct understanding of the suggestion. I suppose I co...

Router Table #2: Dado Time!

2373 days ago by Jon3 | 5 comments »

I grabbed a Dewalt Dado set off Amazon for a song a while back, thanks to the wonderful deal hound at Woodnet. So I loaded that up, got a good fit, and began to run down some Dados Then I began to glue & brad the chassis together. I set that aside so that the glue could dry, and moved on to the drawers. I broke down the ply, and laid them all out. Before I assembled, I did a big tape-up, tossed on some cheap sacrificial borg ply on the bottom, and drilled the...

New Dewalt Flush Trim Router today

2294 days ago by JR | 7 comments »

Once I sneaked it past my wife into my garage, I was free! It seems it’ll be nice to have one other router that isn’t quite such a beast. I think I can do a lot more with it than I would have considered doing with my Porter.

Router table top for my table saw

1258 days ago by nobuckle | 2 comments »

This picture shows a possible solution to attaching my router table top to my table saw. The aluminum rail attaches to the saw and the top attaches to the rail. I can’t take credit for the idea, that goes to LJ joeE. Thanks joeE.

My First Real Attempt at a project. A shaker end Table #6: Been A while but making progress.

1193 days ago by therookie | 2 comments »

Well it has been a long time since I added an entry to my blog so I thought that I would continue updating my progress on the two shaker end tables I am building. Now that I have a biscuit joiner and a dovetail jig I was able to make the drawers and have been doin pretty good. I have changed the design so I can cover up the end grain as best I could and decided to put on a walnut bread-board edge.The drawer sides and back have to put the pins in the front still and mill the grove for the bott...

Roubo Cabinet #9: Framed Backpanel

1057 days ago by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 3 comments »

I have a fully joined carcase with partitions for five drawers, but it’s only got two sides, a top and a bottom. ie: it needs a backside! Options I’ve thought about include a series of half-lap boards nailed into a rabbet at all four edges, and a floating frame and panel. Because one of these is necessarily more difficult to do than the other, you can likely guess which one I’ve chosen… I started work with material selection. For the frame I’ve used a pretty non-descript (re: crappy) piece...

Sweet Chest of Drawers Build #3: The frame and panel sides

504 days ago by Kyle | 3 comments »

My Dad came and visited me back in June and he helped me get started on this. I bought the porter cable router 7518 and a nice big raised panel bit to go with it. I thought I would start by building the panel first and then the frame around it. The reason I did it this way was because I didn’t want to go and buy more and more wood without using what I had so I took two of my more wider boards, cut them in half lengthwise, and edge jointed them to make two panels. I don’t have any ...

Tool chest or blanket chest? #3: end panel

64 days ago by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Test fits of the end panels, not going so well. Lots of gaps. Had to go back and re-do a few things. Couple cuts were even out of square. What I get for rushing things. Reset the corded router, with the “right” bit, a 3/8” straight cutter. reset the fence to be a wee bit more in the center of the board’s edge. Ran all the grooves through, again. But, at least things are now set up for the front and back panels. Checked the raised panels, yep, they wer...
