Summer Joinery Entry Shaker Cabinet #2: Continuing with the construction

2555 days ago by Karson | 6 comments »

One thing nice about not being allowed to use glue, No glue clean up and you can pre-finish all of the parts before assembly. On my finishing blog I wrote about using Pumice and Rottenstone as a wood filler, I thought I’d try something different on this cabinet. I used my private blend Danish Oil (1/3 Boiled Linseed Oil BLO, 1/3 varnish, and 1/3 Mineral Spirits). I squirted it on the boards and used a 120 grit Random Orbital Sander (ROS) to sand the oil and sanding dust. In doing that I wa...

Summer Joinery Entry Shaker Cabinet #1: How I got started

2555 days ago by Karson | 6 comments »

After Martin announced the Summer Contest and the Themes Garden Project and Wood Joinery I started thinking about what I wanted to build. The contest rules state “Wood Joinery – Let’s get technical – but without glues, metal nails, screws or other mechanical fasteners! Yes, this is the “WOOD JOINERY” challenge for all you LumberJocks out there. Let’s see what you are made of – or rather what your woodworking project is made of. If you can build it wit...

Summer Joinery Entry Shaker Cabinet #3: The quest continues, Were getting close now.

2554 days ago by Karson | 11 comments »

Time to turn my attention to the back. The locking mortise and tenon had been designed and it was now time to cut the mortises in the sides of the back. They were marked thru the holes in the sides and tape placed on the back to give the ends of the mortises. Using the horizontal router table. A view from the side. All of the wedge key tenons were made long so they are now being cut to the appropriate length minus 1/8” to allow for the back to move. And cut the wedge tenons to the co...

Summer Joinery Entry Shaker Cabinet #4: Almost Done - Well really its done now,

2554 days ago by Karson | 6 comments »

Almost Done> As I was reading the previous posted blogs on the construction of the Summer 2007 LumberJocks Joinery, I noticed that I failed to complete the posting of the latch for the cabinet door. Not only had I failed to post it, I had failed to install it. I wanted to use something like a clothes pin. The little loop that catches the wire for hanging clothes. I had created my wire simulation out of wood. This was installed in the end of a shelf board. The space behind the Holl...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1213: And Then There Were Five . . .

198 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I frequently hear from my partner Keith that I create projects and then “make work” for myself. He says this because I am not really satisfied with creating one version of a project. If I envision the projects several different ways, I can’t help myself but to make them all. I know that isn’t the most efficient way to work, but it is part of me that can’t be helped. I figure if I can picture it several different ways, then others will appreciate having the ch...
