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...

That was the mistake! - Inlay Banding

05-23-2009 01:54 PM by John8059 | 13 comments »

I am finally working on this project again and ran into another problem. You can find out how I got this far from blogs I posted earlier. Last time I showed how I set up guides to cutting the inlay banding grooves. I eventually got all the inlay banding installed, but when I went to sand it flush with the veneer I found I could feel that the resulting surface was uneven. If I could feel it, imagine how bad it was going to look finished! (Keep in mind my hands are trained to feel irregula...

My first chest of drawers (small)

04-04-2008 04:37 AM by Jimthecarver | 11 comments »

I built this small chest of drawers from scrap wood that was just laying around the shop. It started with a phone call from my Dad. He had explained that he needed a small chest with 3 drawers to fit between the beds in his fifth wheel trailor. The measurements of 14.5” X 18” X 27” was a tight fit so I decided to use the space wisely and not have an overhang on the top. I decided to use the Herring bone pattern on the top to use up a few small scrap pieces of Oak and Maple,(...

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...

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...
