I’ve tried all sorts of methods fro attaching face frames to furniture and cabinetry. In this little blog I will list the various methods I know of, along with my 2 cents on each method. Most of these example show a plywood case, but the principle is the same when working with a solid case. Disclaimer- I realize pictures are helpful, and I don’t have picture for every method…...so many are borrowed from the interwebz. I’ll be sure to pass on some of my royalties to ...
I started working on my sheet good storage system. For a small shop, this is ideal! When you don’t want to use it, you just fold it up and get it out of the way! See the first video in the series on how I made it!
Not being the most creative and obviously skilled I have taken up a huge project that I am hoping will make things functional and smooth for every project to come. I recently acquired a Dewalt planer DW 733 and a DW 745 for 350.00 in great condition from a close friend. My hope and plan is to do right by him and use them until they die or I die. The goal a large “L” shaped work station that will house a table saw area, compound miter station, planing section, router station and ...

Bill did a great job with this article and made it very easy to follow along. He built his table out of cedar and wow did it look grea...

There’s always more than one way to go about any joint. I thought I’d share my preferred method for fixed shelves and drawer dividers in casework. I’m sure you can rollover some of these ideas into solid wood casework, but I’m speaking primarily to the times we might be using cabinet grade plywoods. I should also note that routers and their partnering jigs are very effective for dados, I just like using a dado stack in the tablesaw when I can. Mostly because of fami...
I put a lot of thought into what the first project would be for my fine sawn veneer before I decided on this particular idea. I would have to say there was also a lot of “putting it off” involved but once the project had been chosen the next question was where to start. I wanted the piece to have interest in both decoration and in function (hence the cantilevered drawers) so before anything else I had to make sure the mechanics were sound. Here are a few shots of the hinge comp...
