Cherry File Cabinet #2: Vacuum bagging veneer and glue up

12-29-2014 01:22 AM by JimYoung | 0 comments »

I’ve had some time off for the holidays, and I’m making good progress. I ordered some quarter sawn cherry veneer from OVIS along with soft close drawer slides. A friend loaned me his vacuum pump and I vacuum bagged the veneer to 1/4” birch plywood with West Systems epoxy. I’m used to working with epoxy from my modeling experience. I just pour the epoxy onto the plywood, and squeegee it around with one of the wife’s credit cards. You end up just wetting the...

Wall hanging toolcabinet #2: Building a tool chest

03-17-2012 09:23 PM by Henrik Oscarsson | 0 comments »

Here is a quick update on the tool chest project , “Live” from the shop.—As you can see below, I’ve been inspired a lot by the tool chest Marc Spagnuolo aka “The woodwhisperer” did last summer .Although i have Simplified it a bit.I hope he doesn’t mind that. I will, as he did, use mortise and tenons for the joinery.— I cut all the pieces to the chest and laminated the bottom pieces  to double the thickness, I did the same with the top. I a...

Splines vs Biscuit Joiner #8: Finally it is FINISHED!

09-26-2010 10:50 PM by RonPeters | 8 comments »

Ok, I’ve been working on this for about 18 months. A little here and a little there… a piece at a time. It’s finally finished and now I can move on to making instruments. I never built a bench, or anything else – unless you consider that bowl I turned in wood shop 45 years ago? – so there was some learning curve involved. I never: made box joints or drawers, glued up a top, made and installed mortise & tenon’s, installed a vice – let alone two ...

Aalto Inspired Tea Cart #3: Refining the laminations and underwater basket weaving

07-13-2008 07:32 PM by bfd | 5 comments »

Did I mention how over my head I am with this project? Well after taking a week off from woodworking between a trip to Vegas and not being able to work in the shop due to the smokey air in the Sacramento area I am back to work. Now that I have the laminations glued up I needed to figure out a way to trim them down to finished width. I intentionally glued the laminations up at 3 1/2” knowing that I needed to yield a 2 1/2” wide leg. This was a challenge since I couldn’t u...

Router Question...Recommendation

03-08-2009 06:15 AM by Matthew Archibald | 13 comments »

So I’m working on a box, just a small box and I’d planned on doing dovetails and the whole 9 yards. But my dads old craftsman router crapped out. In the next coming months i’m looking to pick up a more modern and sturdy router. The most bang for my buck. Honestly I don’t know much about this market. Do i go with a PorterCable router and just get the most amperage/hp router i can afford?? So yeah if anybody out there has a recommendation on a good soild router totally s...
