10-05-2009 03:54 PM by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

Got the two beds and the bookcase built in record time, two days. It help that the customer will apply the finish. I finished them up on Saturday just before time to go home. Until I can post the project, here is a link to the videos and building pictures (click here). (at the bottom of the page) For more building pictures see my Current Projects link at wwbeds.com or poggyskids.com. See what we are doing live: <div></div>

Stopped by a job we did today..

09-16-2008 08:06 PM by CraftsmanCollective | 4 comments »

Well, I got a call from a developer we do finish trim design and installs for and he asked me to contact the new owner of one of the homes they built that we did all the finish trim inside. Got a chance to snap a few more pics real quick so I thought I’d add them to the blog. Heres the DiningRoom Pillars, I thought they needed a crown head but the owner wanted to be cheap…sigh.. This next one is of some Alder Beams we did in the Family Room. Heres a shot of the Mas...

The Flip Side of Woodworking...

04-07-2008 09:25 PM by jcees | 14 comments »

Okay, here’s one of the most useful jigs that I’ve ever made. And if I lost i tomorrow, I could build another in about fifteen minutes. I’m not going to include any dimensions as you should make one to fit your own situation. I made this up obviously with scraps. If I made it out of anything else, it wouldn’t work any better. When I build things there’s always some small parts in need of a little fitting. Viola! I frequently use this #7 r...

Sandbar #1: Cabinets for Sandbar are underway!

03-27-2008 04:58 AM by Sparky977 | 3 comments »

Sandbar is the name of the next house I am trimming for Specialty Builders, LLC. After many long evenings playing around with Google Sketchup to draw detailed drawings of the kitchen, and then using Cut List Plus (thanks to a recommendation from Lee Jesberger’s site: prowoodworkingtips.com!) to set up my plywood cutting, I have begun cutting said plywood to size. Cut List Plus is tremendous! It is saving me from having too much waste, plus the option of printing labels for each part ...

A Clean Shop #1: A New Shop Cabinet

11-12-2007 11:25 PM by Tim Dorcas | 0 comments »

The last two months or so, the shop has been a mess. Partly this is due to not having a place to put all of my lumber but the bigger part is I have had no place to put the larger equipment. Recently in one of the woodworking magazines they built a shop cabinet that housed the same type equipment I was trying to organize. They built it with spruce and peg board. I had some left over melamine (melamine that just happened to match all of the other cabinets in the shop) so I went to work with a d...

Cabinet Progress #15: Slow Progress

11-11-2007 04:53 AM by gizmodyne | 20 comments »

Before I install the dishwasher panel I need to fit a piece of trim to cover the mortar bed. So back to the wood pile. I need 11 feet of trim so I pulled a 12 footer from my stash and began the resaw process. First: Metal detector boogie and pull nails. (About 50 this time) Getting ready to resaw. Tiny Shop! Resawing: My outfeed support. Planer cleanup. Unfortunately a knot blew out, so I am going to have to scarf two pieces. Trim stock. Ran out of steam. It is c...

Almost nowBefore I get to the current work on the kitchen, let’s play catch-up.: After a successful but expensive run on the living room and dining room we decided to keep on with the back of the house. We had two rooms to strip/stain and replaster/paint. Plus the L-shaped hallway. I will let the pictures do the talking. DenThe den before (why did I paint it like this?).. During plaster work and with windows stripped. Turns out the casements had been replaced. They look lik...

Hanging Homemade Crown Molding: Suffering Through Mistakes & Learning Life's Lessons.

02-19-2007 06:29 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 11 comments »

I wanted to tell a little more about my experience with crafting my own crown molding, and share a couple of lessons I learned along the way. Previously, I showed how I formed and sanded the profile on the last blog of this topic, and so today I thought I would complete the task by showing the installation of the molding, and a few “gems” I discovered along the way. First off, I made very sure that my cabinet that I am hanging this crown molding on was as perfectly square on...
