Castle Bookcase #6: Trim Part II

339 days ago by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

I used what time I had today to make the final cuts on the base moulding and attach both sides and front with glue and nails. Used up quite a bit of time just clearing space in the garage and setting up an assembly table with sawhorses and of course cleaning up and putting things away so my wife could park her car later. That’s when it dawned on me: this is the largest project I’ve attempted since the workbench! Anyway, after fiddling with the moulding, I decided on pl...

Building a Dr. White's Chest #6: Trim

443 days ago by DustyMark | 0 comments »

TrimChests and wardrobes benefit greatly from the added visual detail of trim applied at the top of the case. Watch this video to see how I cut the cove for the trim on my Dr. White’s chest. Trim after application and prior to final sanding. Out-of-focus shot of the temporary fence set-up I used to make the cove cut. Be sure that your clamps have a good hold. Often, the areas under or near the edge of the table saw are difficult to attain a good clamp hold. NOTE: Years ago,...

Skill Building #6: The Stanley #45 Multiplane and Door Trim

941 days ago by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 7 comments »

Okay, added a wall to define my shop space for heating, etc. and included a pair of pocket doors. They’re framed but need trim. Enter some spaulted (stained, really), flat-sawn sycamore. Dressed the edges and faces, needed something to dress them up a bit. How about a bead? First the flat stock, ready to go. With the #45 set up and ready, an early key is to take multiple, shallow passes. Here’s a scratch pass: Start on the end of the piece, taking multiple passes ...

Machinist Toolcart #11: Almost there. The end of all marking and cutting

1044 days ago by PurpLev | 20 comments »

We had a beautiful weekend, blue clear sky, sun shining and smiling, birds were singing, even the temperature was behaving – just a beautiful weekend. and I was sick. I waited until I could regain enough focus since loss of focus in woodworking is a bad idea and can only lead to disastrous consequences either to the project or worse to ones self and trotted to the garage only to find that the material I had planned to use didn’t look all that fitting to the purpose of acting...

Machinist Toolcart #7: a Trim and a Shave

1098 days ago by PurpLev | 5 comments »

Now that the construction of the carcass was finished (as far as I can think) it was time to trim off the excess of the face frames (front was already done, and just had to do the back). I trimmed off the back as I got home from work. I used a block plane for that and brought the carcass into the house to continue working on it later at night when I get more time: can still see the burn marks from the TS. Nothing that a good shave/scrape wouldn’t clean right off: Later at ...

Machinist Toolcart #3: Dividers Fittings

1127 days ago by PurpLev | 0 comments »

A small step for this tool cart, a huge step for woodworking… or not really, but a small step nonetheless. I was able to dry fit the mitered carcass, and trim the horizontal and vertical drawer dividers to make them fit while keeping everything square (or as close to square as I could manage): had to leave it like that for the rest of the evening, but was able to sneak back to it for a short while longer and cut a 1/8” slot on all the fronts and backs of all the parts...

2nd Saw ??

1402 days ago by majeagle1 | 13 comments »

I don’t believe that this subject has been brought up or not before but as I go throught the many processes of making boxes, there are times when I hate to disrupt or change the settings on my table saw ( blade angle to be exact ) and wish that I had a 2nd saw. I know that many of you have both a table saw and miter saw but do any of you have a “2nd saw” like a smaller trim saw / table top saw for cutting smaller, more detailed pieces and maybe different angles? It sure does...

MDB #4: The Age of the Machines - Final milling and profiling

1450 days ago by PurpLev | 14 comments »

Disclaimer: This blog follows my Magen David Board that is already finished and posted here Once everything was glued up into a single slab, it was time to plane it flat and parallel. one of the strips I jointed happen (don’t ask me how…lol) to be jointed off square, throwing the last 4-5 strips in the glueup off flat (mostly flat). I was tired at this point, and just figured I’m not going to rejoint it, but will pay the price and plane it all down at the cost of having a...

The Kerry-All Pouch is going to be on tv !!

1521 days ago by Wood_smith | 3 comments »

...alas, only on local cable, but a good start.. Our local cable television company has a local interest tv ‘magazine’ show. They shot a video clip of the Kerry-All Pouches Friday at a local building supply dealer. This dealer has been instrumental in helping me launch the various versions of the Pouch, including the original Plywood Pouch, the long and narrow Trim Pouch as well as an 8-foot Drywall Pouch, or cover and a 12-foot model. They’ve tried prototypes and given m...

1747 days ago by Greg Salata | 9 comments »

It has been a while but I finally finished the living room.The last of the trim has been installed. The baseboard proved to be more challenging than I had hoped for.The house over the last 100+ years has settled so every bit had to be scribed and planed to fit. There are still pieces to build for the room but at least it is finished. I plan on adding a period correct light to finish it off. thanks for looking. Greg Here is the finished product finally…....................
