I make some benches to be used with our kitchen table.A fun project that is not all that difficult. The benches turned out very sturdy and look great! Please watch and comment. Would love to hear what you all think. Thank you! http://youtu.be/nRKWt6uyClM Chris
Pictures of my tool chest build.
Fitting drawers is not for the faint of heart. It’s at this point in the project you wish you would’ve spent more time making sure everything was square. I went with metal full pull out slides..or I guess they are 18” slides and the carcass depth is 21” or so.The upper doors are your basic mortise and tenon joinery…the tenon is a haunch tenon. The hardest part about the doors is getting the hinge mortise done correctly…that is why the one door on the lef...
I had read a lot about the best way to build drawers. I was going back and forth on do I make them out of plywood or solid wood. In the end I didn’t want to have to glue up sides etc so I went with baltic birch plywood. I chose to do dovetails on them and that was a challenge….The tearout was almost unavoidable…I have a PC 2012 dovetail jig and I needed a way to have a backboard that would help prevent the tearout…I ended up using a piece of pine with two small refe...
I had been thinking about building some sort of cabinet for the office for awhile. It needed to be functional and most importantly my wife had to approve. :) There are alot of good examples out there but I never found one that I really liked. I love the Dr. White chest but I needed more drawers. My office is kind of a dumping ground of pictures,computer parts and paperwork…I needed something that would organize and hide all that.Here is a drawing that I started with. I knew the gen...
Growing up I was not a fan of wood. At our house, cottage and neighbor’s houses, wooden furniture consisted mainly of two kinds. First was a generic bland, almost grainless medium brown McWood type of furniture. The typical coffee or end table you’d get from a department store. The second type was oak. Oak furniture, particularly mission style seemed to be all over the place. Some people like oak, I’ve never been a fan. Between the two I felt wood was a material of the pa...
Hey everybody. I wanted to share at least some aspects of this current project because there are several problems and techniques I’m dealing with here for the first time and was hoping for some input, other solutions and ideas, etc. A couple of the issues have to do with wood movement and I think I’m happy with how I’ve handled them but would welcome any input. Take a look. Terrible picture but just to provide some reference, the bookcase is in cherry with a curly map...
I finally got around to making the shaker wall clock like Norm Abrams did on the New Yankee Workshop many years ago. Please view my video here: http://youtu.be/zDL9bfkEObY Thanks! Chris
What started as a leaking kitchen faucet has turned in to a kitchen remodel. However, I convinced my wife that before tearing up the kitchen, we should build a buffet in the dining room. If all goes well, then we will tackle the kitchen next year. We have been living in this house since July 1987. It has been paid for for several years and all of our kids are grown so it is just me and the missus. The cabinets are vintage 1983 oak but their time has come and gone. I don’t like the...
wow i havent been out to the shed in so long i guess its due to the fact that i have just finished all my exams and i really just was to lazy to do some woodworking but theres a big change about to happen, in about two weeks or so i will create a youtube channel, website and hopefully a Facebook page to do with me building projects. years ago i used to have youtube videos but they were dull and boring so i am giving it another shot, and i have to say with me being more experienced and with th...
