Kitchen Cabinets #4: How I cut my shelf pins

2008 days ago by Dan Lyke | 7 comments »

For the cabinets, I wanted movable shelves. I was told that the Euro style round pins “looked tacky”, and I didn’t want to run tracks, but I’d run across a note by Charles Wilson suggesting the use of Dominos for shelf pins, and that seemed like a great idea. I cut a strip of wood the width of the spacing I wanted, cut it in half, put a lip on each one so that I could place it on the edge of my carcase sides and it’d protrude over at 90 degrees. Then it was j...

Tall Shelf

2188 days ago by Tim | 4 comments »

This is a shelf I finished last month for my sister. The size accommodates a corner beside the patio door. I left the back and sides open for showing off her fancy scrapbooks. I screwed it to the wall through the top rail. It is all 3/4” solid mahogany from the home center. The shelves sit on adjustable pins. A 1” piece wraps three sides to give heft and cover the endgrain. I used glue at the front with splines at the rear for seasonal movement. The rail...

My Wife's Kitchen Corner Shelf

2284 days ago by jackd942 | 5 comments »

Here is another project of mine. It is a kitchen corner shelf I made out of ponderosa pine for my wife. A pretty simple project, but it turned out pretty well. The sweeping curves on the front were just freehanded on a pattern piece then sanded smooth. The center hole on the face was cut with a large forstner bit. I completed this, if I remember right, in 2003 over a two day period on a weekend. The only thing I think I would have done differently is in the finish. I used a gel stain. If...

Transforming a Kitchen Cookbook Nook

2291 days ago by Mark A. DeCou | 15 comments »

I have a client that lives close to me, and we have had a lot of fun designing and building things for their home. They sort of “pushed” me into quitting my day job by offering a long term commission to transform their home with functional-art pieces one at a time, according to an overall game plan. They had a general idea of what they wanted, but needed someone to turn the dream into wood. They were willing to adapt their ideas to mine, and vice versa, and I have really appr...

Recycled Honey Do...

2399 days ago by Buckskin | 6 comments »

My wife wants to move her sewing table into our bedroom so that has brought about a few changes. To get the table in the TV has to go someplace but it can’t leave the room. This is one of those spur of the moment deals where I took a few measurements and headed to the shop. Looking around I decided to use 1×4’s that once served as bed slats and a piece of 7/16 OSB that was left over from building my benches. The shelf is now hanging from the ceiling joists with a fir...

Closet Rebuild #1: Shelf Pin Jig

2534 days ago by Jeff | 4 comments »

As part of the revamp of the closet in our loft that collapsed a few moths ago, I built this jig to ensure all the holes for the shelf pins would line up and I (hopefully) won’t have any wobbly shelves. It was inspired by a jig sold by one of the well-known woodworking retailers. I couldn’t see buying one when I had all the necessary stuff sitting around (short of a special bit). In hind sight, the time spent might justify the cost. What can I say? I like building jigs. All the...

Thorsen Table Challenge #10: Making pegs my way !

2543 days ago by Dick, & Barb Cain | 22 comments »

Today I tried making pegs for the false shallow holes. I had alot of trouble doing it the way the plan instructed. I would get chip out when carving the facets on the plugs. I’m using Walnut, maybe Ebony wouldn’t do this because it’s more dense. So I setup my disk sander miter to 30 degrees, & sanded my 3/8” stock to a point. Then I cut to the hole depth, & tapped them in with hammer with a dab of glue. Here’s a short video of how I used my disk san...
