Kitchen Shelf: Step By Step #1: The support units

31 days ago by Greg Guarino | 2 comments »

We have more kitchen stuff than fits in our cabinets. We decided that a really large shelf could serve to hold some of the nicer-looking pieces, opening up room for the more utilitarian stuff behind closed doors. This started as a simple, innocent slab of wood on some store-bought brackets, but got waylaid in the design process. :) Here’s the design It’s big, about 94” long by 12” deep. It also incorporates two techniques I haven’t tried before (I’...

Book Shelf - Portable Bookshelf - for Tabletop

110 days ago by Joe Lyddon | 18 comments »

Book Shelf – Portable Bookshelf – for Tabletop Wood Magazine – May 2003 – for Plans I used a Sliding Dovetail to attach the shelf to the Ends instead of what the plans called for. I found a Bed Headboard on the street on Trash day… was solid wood! That’s what I used. I could have / should have sanded the wood a little more, but I thought it would some character to it the way I did. A little wood burning was done for a Unicorn on each End. ...

A Little Something "Extra"

155 days ago by shoutingpickel | 0 comments »

So a week or so ago I built a crown molding shelf for my soon to be born daughters room. Well I only built one and after looking at it on the wall I decided that it looked a little lonely there hanging all by itself so I did what any self respecting woodworker would do …......... I gave myself another reason to build something. I went to the store and bought the materials I would need and a little extra, you know just in case. Well my wife was with me so I couldn’t buy a much e...

308 days ago by Walther von Einik | 1 comment »

The idea of making this simple and natural by it’s natural aging properties was originated after looking the photos, which were made in the expedition in the rare Orthodox areas of the far Russia. I made the photos of natural and many centuries’ terms of the wood aging on the Kizhi isle, Republic of Karelia, people started to live here in 10th century, started to live with slavonic people.

Workbench Build - Splayed leg French Bench #18: The Shelf

455 days ago by Mauricio | 22 comments »

I’m surprised at how much progress I’ve made since the last blog, especially since this part was pretty hand tool intensive. The following is the process I went through the make the lower shelf. I had a bunch of rough sawn Red Oak that was perfect to use up on the shelf. I’m done making furniture out of Red Oak so I really wanted to burn through it all with this bench build. So I got a nice workout two days ago with the wooden Fore, Scrub, and Stanley #5. I got these boards fl...

Some Miscellaneous Simple Projects

459 days ago by Chris Moellering | 0 comments »

The other weekend I knocked out a few quick projects. I had made a simple jewelry holder with my daughter previously. It was cheap and easy and she likes it. I came up with the idea of using the track that is used for adjustable shelves instead of ripping thin stock and drilling dozens of holes in it for her earrings. (Which is what the ones she found online that she liked had done.) This was much faster, especially since I don’t have a drill press. It cut easily with a hack saw. As ...

521 days ago by jjw5858 | 6 comments »

Hey everyone nice to get back into some cabinet work and leave the spoons and hatchet on the ole choppin’ stump this time! Between the hurricane hitting…then the snow storm post sandy, my bench and pine planks got a bit ignored. This project is more based around something fun and really useful as well as getting more exercise with hand chisels in regarding chamfering edges. Basically I have found that if you can go to a work bench and hand chamfer with skill using a chisel then it...

533 days ago by JC Boysha | 4 comments »

So, after the meta post I had last night, I thought I’d post something a little bit lighter today. I would like to thank the kind words I got from people here at LJ.

Also, I did manage to find some time to get into the shop, which was exciting! (Side note, I work afternoon shift, 3-11, so I h...
