Barrister Book Case Tutorial #7: Building the sides

08-30-2009 10:16 PM by Scarcraig01 | 4 comments »

Hey readers, my apologies for that last post being published twice. This post will show the construction of the sides: Because the maple ply that I bought is not a rotary-sliced veneer but a Pivot slice, it appears as if its glued up boards, each one being around 6”. So a 24” inch wide piece looks like 4 boards glued up. To make this work to my advantage, I laid out the pieces and used the track saw to make the first cut in a way that would make my sides look like the ...

Barrister Book Case Tutorial #6: Rockler's Barrister Slides

08-30-2009 09:08 PM by Scarcraig01 | 3 comments »

I was going to use Rockler’s Barrister slides because as I mentioned before I’m not very happy with the current set up for how the doors work using the plansnow solution of groves and pins. This solution works alright once you get use to it and it is pretty simple and cost effective, but I was really hopeful that I could get the Rockler hardware to work because it looked like it would have made for a smoother operation. http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=18058&#...

Barrister Book Case Tutorial #2: Begining with the base

08-29-2009 01:33 AM by Scarcraig01 | 3 comments »

I begin by building pretty simple bases. They’re designed so that boxes are able to stack on top of each other. The slat on the top fits into the bottom of the box. I start with 2’x4” pieces of plywood. (I always have the 4×8 sheets cut down at my dealers.) I use my Festool track saw to achieve a straight and true edge before moving to the table saw. (This gets rid of any course, splintered, and possibly not straight, edge from the panel saw at the dealer...

Desk build #4: Nurses Desk: framed, drawers, top glue-up

08-29-2009 01:13 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 13 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...

Barrister Book Case Tutorial #1: Maple Barister

08-29-2009 12:04 AM by Scarcraig01 | 4 comments »

Here is the completed quartersawn solid white oak barrister with frame and panel sides that I recently completed. (Terrible pic, taken in a narrow hallway with bad light!) I have completed 5 out of the 7 total that I plan to build in this style. I will return to building the remaining two after I complete the Maple Plywood ones that I’m blogging about now. I have decided to put these on hold to build the maple ones for my sister as a Christmas present. When I finish her maple...

Maple Barrister Bookcase

08-28-2009 07:32 AM by Scarcraig01 | 3 comments »

This blog will follow my process as I build a maple set of barrister bookcases. My long range goal is to build a total of 22 barrister “boxes” divided into 6 units. To date, I have completed 8 boxes in 2 units. The first, is solid quartersawn white oak with frame and panel sides. The second, was made using mahogany plywood with solid mahogany trim pieces. The plan I’m using, (although somewhat modified) is from plans now.com I added frame and panel sides to min...

Tablesaw dust collection

08-28-2009 12:33 AM by kosta | 9 comments »

Yo whats up everybody so I got my skil tablesaw yesterday and it took about 3 hours to set it up and I filmed the whole thing so part 1 of that series will be out next week. I made a few cuts with the saw and it is a nice saw the only problem is there is sooooooooo much dust that goes everywhere and I didnt realize this when I got it but the entire bottom of the saw is open so what I will probably do is take the saw off the stand mount it to a piece of plywood and put a dust port on that. The...
