Checkerboard Project #4: Jiggidy Jig Day

12-03-2012 06:25 AM by Retsof | 1 comment »

I got side tracked and didn’t accomplish any of the goals that I set for today. The day wasn’t a total loss though. I made a batch of chili and I watched a few videos on dovetail joints and marked up my boards. I need to clear space on my bench to do the cutting, so that was my excuse for not starting on them until I finish gluing up the top. Out in the garage, I glued up a few more rows and while I was waiting for the glue to dry, I started thinking about the game pieces th...

Checkerboard Project #3: Squaring Up The Squares

Because I’m going to attempt dovetail joints for the first time on the box sides, I cut the sides by hand and jointed the edges by hand to make sure they were perfectly matched. My playing surface was about a quarter of an inch ove...

Craftsman built-ins #3: Window seat - stereo cabinet #3

11-26-2012 11:15 PM by mountainaxe | 0 comments »

After giving the glue a chance to set up overnight, I used today to accomplish final assembly and sanding. The top of the bench is 3/4” hardwood plywood. Of course, since the bench is longer than 8’, I had to piece the top from several sections. This was not a problem since I’m painting. The doors look great and, to my surprise, fit the bench door openings almost perfectly. I trimmed the front plywood edge with 1 3/4” pine…two pieces spliced together with a ...
