Desk build #5: Nurses desk, finished

09-02-2009 10:19 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 5 comments »

The desk is finally finished. My niece wants to stain and poly it herself so I’m done with it at this point. Back up to any of the other blogs for background info on this build. The second picture shows the drawer open and the keyboard tray extended after the front cover is pulled down. A magnetic latch holds it in a closed position. Next build: believe it or not, a pellet stove box to hold stove pellets, made to look like a couch end table. Hmm.

starting my kitchen cabinets

08-26-2009 09:29 PM by woodchic | 78 comments »

Hi everybody…....My husband finally got the floor finished…...he did a fantastic job I might add and now…..I finally sucked up enough courage to get started on my kitchen cabinets. The kitchen and dining area is 14 ft wide x 24.6 ft long. My cabinets are made of plywood and my face frames and doors are made out of hickory. I have never worked on a set of kitchen cabinets before, so I am pretty much learning this on my own. I have a friend on here that gives me advice whe...

Kitchen Furniture #1: Kitchen Table

08-26-2009 08:32 PM by Ackdaddy | 5 comments »

My wife and I bought a foreclosure about a year ago and are about 75% done with the plans that we set forth in the beginning. The kitchen is completely redone, along with the living room and our expectant baby’s nursery. The bathrooms are in process along with our bedroom. I’ve sort of taken a break from the home improvement aspect and gotten into a lot more woodworking. I find my hands to be a lot more steady than ever, and my accuracy much improved. So now I am making a k...

Black walnut pencil post bed

08-26-2009 06:15 PM by RnG | 3 comments »

I’m in the middle of this project, using walnut that I helped my dad cut some 30 years ago and has been in a barn drying ever since. I’m making this full size bed for my one twin daughter, as she asked me to do it. This is really my first major furniture project ever and has been quit the learning experience. I’ll post pix ASAP. All pieces are cut and sanded, now I’m going to fill the pores with orange shellac and sanding and then do a French polish finish on the m...

Structural Crack Filling

08-24-2009 11:35 PM by Ancientwood | 4 comments »

Ancientwood has developed a technique for filling large, structural cracks, sometimes found in Ancient Kauri slabs. This is a step-by-step approach for creating a flat surface with beautiful patterns and design. 1. The slab must first be flattened. This can be done with a drum sander, planer or a CNC router.2. After the slab is flat, locate cracks that need filling.3. Fill any hairline cracks with color-matched latex putty. Wet the adjacent area of the Ancient Kauri with spirits to get an a...

Secret Compartment Toy Box #2: Secret Compartment Toy Box Continued...

08-22-2009 07:13 PM by John M | 1 comment »

First, thanks for all the great comments so far! I’ve only been here for a few hours and I already feel like I found the best place to explore woodworking. : ) So in my planning I figured that I would build a toy box and hide the secret compartment into the frame/trim area in the bottom. I would attach a drawer to one of the sides of the trim which would act as the drawer front. The biggest issue I had with my planning was how to lock the thing. I thought of a few different de...

Big Pine Board #3 Getting to some shaping and cutting

08-21-2009 08:41 PM by Durnik150 | 4 comments »

Well it took me almost 2 weeks to get the shop reorganized after the delivery of a new table saw and a great set of cabinets I was given from a local school. That ate up most of my time but I’m back on the Big Board project. I got out the circular saw and squared all my edges and was able to arrive at the final overall shape. When the four pieces are assembled and next to each other, it will have this basic design. Extra curves and obviously legs will be coming soon. My next c...

"Art Box" Tutorial #12: Shaping

08-11-2009 01:55 PM by Andy | 28 comments »

Updated 1/16/12 This is the fun part! Its scary too! The idea of taking a nice crisp box, one you have spent countless hours making, and attacking it with a tool designed for slag removal is…well…its a little disturbing. Maybe I was influenced by old Hitchcock movies more than I know. Seriously, what I enjoy is the freedom this gives me. Everything up to this point has been tied to measurements and careful setups. This is where we can cut loose a little. But slow down Hot...
