Building a Corner Cabinet From Magazine Plans

12-12-2018 01:15 AM by wrenchhead | 1 comment »

I built this corner cabinet out of curly maple. I built this project by following an article in the November 2010 issue (No. 186)of Popular Woodworking Magazine. I really love this design and this is the second one of these style cupboards i have built over the years. I mostly followed the plans in the article but I did make some changes, incorporating a beginner blacksmith project in to the cabinet. I forged these simple J hooks at the anvil for the piece and am I’m really happy with h...

Outdoor table #5: Finishing the table top

12-07-2018 08:42 AM by icemanhank | 9 comments »

My first attempt at bread board ends by hand. It was tougher than I thought and I would give one end a 9.5/10 and the other sadly an 8/10 but I can’t fix it now it is together. Putting it down to a learning experience and more skills and sharper tools needed.

The amazing woodworking collection of Zhuhai, China

10-15-2018 09:46 PM by Elyasaf Shweka | 12 comments »

Try to imagine yourself, as a hobbyist woodworker, being invited to a private tour accompanied by an Chinese government representative, in what appears to be the biggest, most expensive and most amazing woodworking collection. how big? 20 thousand square meters, which is about 200,000 square feet, equivalent to the size of an Walmart superstore. also, this collection is private, and therefor closed to the public. we were the only visitors at this giant warehouse.I have so much to say about t...

Bench Dogs For The Work Bench

07-05-2018 08:06 PM by wrenchhead | 0 comments »

I made a quick video on how I made the bench dogs for my work bench using bullet catches to hold the dogs in place when not in use. This is a pretty common method of making bench dogs and they only take a few minutes to build. Thanks for watching https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iVtW3A461Dk

Bed Frame, out of Pine #7: Friday's Follies

05-26-2018 04:03 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Was a mean, old, LONG day….Yard sale had these two clamps.. $4..one pad was missing, oh well. Fabric was bought… Hey, the Boss picked it out…2 yards worth….and a can of “finish” We’ll see. Plywood panel needed a rebate around the edges.. Wards 78 was able, despite my sore left thumb, to peel off one layer…1/2” or so wide. This way, the panel AND the fabric will fit in the grooves…Stapler…was a POS..three tries ...

Bed Frame, out of Pine #6: Headboard work, test fits

05-24-2018 09:00 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Took the footboard upstairs to the bedroom, to see IF it fits….the way things were going, I wanted to make sure.. Looks like it will fit…went back to the shop, and took the headboard apart….rails needed a bead.. They needed sanded and I even ran a roundover bit down the edges… Tenons on the ends,needed fine tuned.. Mainly the endgrain…was a bit out of square…chin powered the chisel, not a hammer.. Rails were done, sanded to 180 grit, and set...
