Desk build #3: Nurse desk: Some glue-up

1827 days ago by Craftsman on the lake | 4 comments »

RecapMy niece will graduate as a nurse in the near future. She has moved into a new house and asked me for a small desk for her new flat panel iMac. I decided to make an oak desk that would be loosely based on the mission style but with side panels that would reflect her future as an RN. My goal is a small desk 48” x 29” with keyboard drawer and a small drawer. I’ll be trying my first hand made dovetails on scrap and then on to my first dovetailed drawer I put this out here, baring all for...

Kitchen Furniture #1: Kitchen Table

1828 days ago by Ackdaddy | 5 comments »

My wife and I bought a foreclosure about a year ago and are about 75% done with the plans that we set forth in the beginning. The kitchen is completely redone, along with the living room and our expectant baby’s nursery. The bathrooms are in process along with our bedroom. I’ve sort of taken a break from the home improvement aspect and gotten into a lot more woodworking. I find my hands to be a lot more steady than ever, and my accuracy much improved. So now I am making a k...

After the slab is flat, locate cracks that need filling.3. Fill any hairline cracks with color-matched latex putty. Wet the adjacent area of the Ancient Kauri with spirits to get an a...

Now I dont have a working circular saw and I know that a table saw is more accurate then a circular saw. In this case its not I read some of the reviews on lumberjocks and on home depot.com on both the ridgid circular saw and the ryobi table saw and I really wasnt convinced that this ...
