Cookbook Shelf Units #3: Drilling the Dowel Holes

05-26-2014 04:01 AM by Greg Guarino | 2 comments »

They’re done. All 256 of them. I rethought and then reconfigured the jig a bit so I could keep the same reference surface when drilling both ends of the “rungs”. It went very quickly: That was the very first one and it took a little under a minute. 32 of them took a little under a half hour. Next I had to drill the mating holes in the stiles. I rebuilt the jig from the same parts, marked up the pieces, and started drilling: With some trepidation, I dry fit tw...

"Warehouse" Shelving #1: Introduction

08-31-2010 06:17 PM by Trimble | 2 comments »

Hi all… I just thought I’d jump in and start posting a few pictures of my current project. I’m not a seasoned woodworker by ANY means, though I’ve always secretly held a desire to learn woodworking. I live with my wife and son sharing a house with her parents. They were originally supposed to move out and let us take over the house, but when their project to buy a new house became a project to buy some empty land to “someday maybe” build a house on,...

Open Shelves Bracket

11-14-2012 03:22 AM by BertFlores58 | 2 comments »

The wooden brackets. My daughter Janna needs additional shelves in the dorm to be attached in a concrete wall. There are 3 objectives: 1) The shelves has to be individually installed in a convenient space (the dorm is too small and has very limited space. 2) There is a need that it will be removed later when you need to transfer from other rooms. (Actrually we are only renting the dorm while Janna is taking Dentistry course 3 years to go from now). 3) Easy to instal...

Boys Bedroom (cape cod) #1: Where I am so far

03-11-2014 02:58 AM by Questtut | 1 comment »

So, it is time for my boys to get their own room. They are getting too big for their cribs, and I need to finish that spare bedroom for them so they can have their own space. We have a small cape cod home, originally 4 bedrooms when we moved in, but we made it 3, creating a master bedroom downstairs by combining the 2 smaller rooms. Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms, shaped like a plus symbol, and a small half bath (currently unusable as well). The bath will be a project for another day...

Bedroom Closet #2: The Shelves: Cut and Stained

02-11-2010 01:39 AM by Broooklyn | 1 comment »

So, in response to my previous post – I’m only working on the right side of the closet design and I only have 6 shelves at the moment instead of 7. The wood I ended up getting was “Whitewood” which seems to be some kind of spruce or pine. It’s pretty light and soft. I got it because it was pretty cheap and the width was perfect so I didn’t have to do any ripping. I did end up getting a circular saw but there was a massive snow storm so I had to work indo...

Home improvement and Repair #2: Built in Home Library and Entertainment Center

10-05-2012 04:49 PM by C_Philhower | 1 comment »

This is a recap of a project I did almost 2 years ago, but wanted to post it online and just got around to it now. My Wife and I have a room in our basement that was partially finished by the previous owners of our home. For the first year and a half that we owned the house the room had a dartboard, an XBox and TV, a futon and about a dozen boxes of books. The walls were already sheet rocked and painted, carpet was installed and there was even an attempt at a tray ceiling with a small ceil...
