Sandpaper Storage Cabinet #1: Sandpaper Storage Cabinet-1

1293 days ago by Huckleberry | 3 comments »

This is a versatile little cabinet in which you can store whatever your heart desires in it. The overall dimensions for this project is 21”w x 11 ¼”d x 13 ¼” h. Of course if you need something bigger than make it bigger, or to fit your needs. I am using Baltic Birch for mine but use whatever material you feel like using. As always if you have any questions email them to me at askhuck@hucksdiy.com.—http://blip.tv/file/4726686

Swiss Trip #4: Swiss woodwork and joinery

1320 days ago by Roger Strautman | 10 comments »

With my construction background it was only natural for me to pay special attention to some of the unique construction techniques from years past. This is a unfinished end of a house. Oh yes, they do have lumber yards! Some of the woodwork was beyond one’s imagination.

Machinist Toolbox #7: Draw me a Draw

1338 days ago by PurpLev | 16 comments »

What do you know, I was able to use the last 3 days for some extra shop time! As planned, I cut the drawers parts on day 1 (not a full day, but it did happen on the first day). On day 2 I was able to build the drawers and glue them up. The plan was to use half blind dovetails for the solid maple fronts. I must say, making these many dovetails at such a small scale was exhausting (but good practice)! the joints improved from one drawer to the next, not all perfect, but considering the scale...

Tip Tuesday #1: Buy “Solid” wood

1381 days ago by Chris Davis | 10 comments »

Some associate veneers as being low quality and if you truly want quality go all solid. Really the opposite could be true. Veneers got a bad rap around the 60’s when cheap furniture was introduced into the market. There was delaminating, which is the lifting of the veneer, because of a bad process and gules. What is veneer? Veneer is a thinly sliced piece of wood glued onto a substrate or a another, usually manufactured, wood like MDF or plywood. With today’s technology these slices ca...

Gable Box Build #2: Building a Second Box

1528 days ago by SPalm | 10 comments »

Well I started on Gable box number 2. Actually it is really box number 4. The original box number 2 became seriously gouged when I tried to get clever on the routing table. Box 3 has curved gables rather than triangles. Things get a lot tougher doing that. Box 1 was small and cubic, so now I tried larger and squattier. I also want to try out some interior trays. I suck at the artistic side of design, so I tried using the Golden Ratio of 1.6:1. I picked a larger box of 8 inches square....

Cutting veneers on the bandsaw, from green wood?

1548 days ago by Brian Havens | 4 comments »

I have done my share of veneer work, using both commercial veneers and veneer I cut myself on the bandsaw. I also do a lot of turning, mostly from green wood. Until now these two pleasures have remained disparate, but this past month, those pleasures collided. It all started after I scored some logs of Claro Walnut. There was one particular piece of crotch that I could not figure out what to do with, so I left it in the shape of a block. About a day later, while looking at the photo b...

Gable Box Build #1: First Look

1550 days ago by SPalm | 18 comments »

Here goes my brain again, off on some tangent. I have been thinking of building this box for a long time. I want to try to use veneer for some box building, but need some tricks to hide the veneered edge. So I chose a gable topped box with walnut corner treatment to hide the veneer. I am not sure if I like it, but it does have some potential. It was always prettier in my head. Maybe comments on the design might help. Or even the suggestion to start over or just bag it..It started with a...

Adventures in Vacuum Veneering #5: Lingerie Chest Build

1590 days ago by SPalm | 13 comments »

I got in way over my head on this one, and I still have a long way to go. I wanted to do a piece with some veneering work, so I picked a Lingerie Chest. The wife unit wanted one, so it started. I also found out that a Lingerie Chest was to have seven drawers, for the seven days of the week. Who knew? So I veneered two panels of 3/4 inch MDF with quarter-sawn cherry. They are about 42 inches by 14 inches. I used the home made shower curtain bag with my vacuum pump. That will probably ...

Woodworking Tour of the Berkshires

1634 days ago by Glen Peterson | 13 comments »

In January I posted to an LJ forum about a planned woodworking trip to the Berkshires. We went on Feb 19, 2010, and it was a great day. Well, it was a cold day, when Steve and I left Glastonbury, CT for the Berkshires. During the trip we were joking about buddy movies and decided to subtitle our trip: Glen & Steve’s Excellent Woodworking Adventure as an homage to perhaps the worst buddy film of all time. Our first stop was Bannish Lumber in tiny Chester, Mass. Their URL is h...
