How I did it . . . #1: The Dresser

1051 days ago by Jacquelyn Smith | 6 comments »

Design to Conception Are you interested in doing inlay, veneer, designing and building a project on your own? Here’s an example of a job I designed and built for a client last year. I already had a blog (perfect45degree.blogspot.com/) before discovering LJ. My guess is that most clients probably aren’t very interested in how I build other projects, only theirs. Given the community here, I thought I’d try writing about how I came to design and build the tünr (pronounced “tune-r”) dresser. ...

Board Game Travel Case #3: Starting Over

1094 days ago by ChadR | 0 comments »

I decided to go back and redo the exterior walls. I wanted to learn how to use my router anyways so I thought I should start here. I am not sure whats its call but I make grooves for the shelving units to fit into as well as the front face of the case. I was originally just going to have it set in place and clasp onto the front but thought it would look nice if it had a channel to rest into. The router works great and I think i got the hang of it. So far everything is coming out much nicer th...

Critics stink!

1136 days ago by Transition | 16 comments »

My garage is an old barn. It is partitioned into three sections: 1) a 20’x20’ on the bottom right, 2) a 10’x20’ on the bottom left with stairs to 3)my shop on the second floor. So last night I was building some shelving on the bottom right. When I finished aroung 10pm, I took a 45min break to grab a bite. When I returned, I started filling the shelves. In the room on the left I heard a rustling noise. I peeked through the connecting door and discovered… a s...

Shelf project complete

1298 days ago by jbschutz | 0 comments »

Well, the shelves are installed. You can see pictures on my projects page (I couldn’t figure out how to get the pictures in the blog without going to a lot of trouble) The installation was easy, due to pretty careful planning. I had milled the ledger board for each shelf to pretty exact size, so it was just a matter of locating the studs, screwing the ledger strip to the wall, and slipping the shelf cavity over the ledger. A couple of screws through the top to secure it in place ...

Weekend Wall Shelf

1307 days ago by thewoodwhisperer | 11 comments »

Right Click to DownloadRight Click to Download in HDSubscription Options Without a doubt, this is one of those “procrastination projects”. For years, Nicole has been after me to build her a little shelf near our gaming desk. She has a bunch of little collectibles that she wants to display and there’s simply no storage space in that corner of the room. On a monthly basis, she would remind me of this need and even resorted to threats: “You know, Lowe’s has th...

CS1 Kitchen Shelf

1429 days ago by HalDougherty | 2 comments »

Here’s a simple shelf that I built and installed in about an hour one morning. I needed some additional space in the kitchen to store spices. I live and work in an old two story farm house and there just wasn’t a good place to store some things. So… I built this shelf from some black walnut in my cutoff bin. I make custom gunstocks so I end up with a lot of great looking wood that’s too short, too narrow, or has some other defect that won’t make a good looking g...

Playroom #2: Let there be more light

1683 days ago by clieb91 | 3 comments »

Well it seems the little battery powered lights I orginally put in the playhouse just are not enough. So I needed to add some additional light. I needed something my daughter could turn off easily. So we found a lamp on clearance and got rid of the (H.M.) shade and bought something a little nicer. A simple shelf bolted next to her loft with a place for some books, some Liquid Nail to attach the lamp and some extension chain added to the original in order to allow her to turn it on from the lo...

Mom's Quilt Rack #2: Test Piece

1732 days ago by imelmer | 0 comments »

Since I haven’t done much woodwork since high school other than Pinewood Derby and making pens, I decided to make a test piece. I picked up some pine and after the boards were planed, I did the basic layout. I still have a lot of work to do, but I have the pieces cut out. I was debating how to do the jointery, but I decided to try pocket screws and glue. Maybe I’ll get a couple of pics when I get the holes drilled. For now, here are some pics of the work so far. ...
