Mom's Quilt Rack #1: Plans

11-29-2009 12:32 AM by imelmer | 5 comments »

I’m making a quilt rack for my mother. She didn’t want anything specif other than a wall mounted shelf with room to hang and display 2 quilts, so I just found some projects others have made and will be adding my own style. Hopefully she will like it. This is a very basic project, but I’ve wanted to learn more about how to use SketchUp, so I took the time to draw up some plans. I haven’t decided if I’ll be using pine or oak. If it turns out well, I might ...

Getting back into woodworking

06-03-2009 06:33 PM by Don Bowers | 2 comments »

Thanks to all of you for the warm welcome to lumberjocks! I’m anticipating tremendous growth in my woodworking skills as a result of “rubbing elbows” with you fine people. I’ve been a graphic artist and illustrator for 12 years now. Until recently, my work and family have captured the majority of my time and I have had little to spare for woodworking projects. But now things are opening up and I have two projects I’ve given myself. 1) My wife wants a pair o...

Hand Tools Cabinet #3: All aboard the Planes

02-17-2009 06:48 AM by PurpLev | 9 comments »

I saw this FWW Complete Illustrator Guide to Woodworking, and while I found most of the book to be mediocre (although a nice reference book when you’re starting woodworking) I did pick up a couple of cool ideas from it… then again, it might have been from a different book…lol so I finally mounted my (until now just laying there) hand planes in the cabinet. The shelves are shaped to the profile of each handplane for full support, the shelf has a small ‘step’ (1...

Pythagorias would be proud of this Display Shelf #1: Design Phase - Sketchup

01-16-2009 05:11 PM by depictureboy | 3 comments »

Well while I am waiting for the glass for my wifes display case, I am working on designing my daughters shelf for her room. She has a ton of webkinz, and she also has some glass dolls that were my wife’s. The dog is able to get on her bed and pull down the webkinz(bad very bad..eheh) so I am tasked with designing a shelf system that will help even out the density of the toys. Right now they are all piled on top of each other and fall down all the time(also making them an easy target for...

Kitchen Cabinets #4: How I cut my shelf pins

10-16-2008 07:38 PM 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

04-20-2008 09:02 AM 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

01-15-2008 05:04 AM 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

01-07-2008 06:41 PM 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...
