Just for Fun... #75: Making Lemonade from Lemons...

452 days ago by littlecope | 14 comments »

In the last episode the latest box (a Bubinga type thing) was in the final stages… After cleaning up the top’s edges, some “reveals” were found, small separations in the miters of the top… I tried what I’ve heard about here so many times, making a slurry of the sawdust and wood glue, and applying it to the separations… The results were excellent!! When the project is posted in a few days, You can be the judge of where the reveals were! :)Anyway, wh...

Kitchen Remodel #16: Mini Cabinets and Soffit upgrade

1122 days ago by Karson | 19 comments »

I built two mini cabinets (Spice Racks) that are beside the microwave and fill in the space between it and the two cabinets on each side. The original soffit was about 12” high like the builders put up. I tore them out and made them shorter so the cabinets could be taller. I did fine a couple of water pipes and a sink drain so I couldn’t make a totally flat ceiling but I ended up with a 4” soffit. Two 2X4’s and some drywall. I then decided to cover the front o...

Shaker Table - Woodworkers Fighting Cancer #4: Construction Done, On to Finishing Next

1617 days ago by Kerry Drake | 0 comments »

Saturday late afternoon I got the chance to run out and glue up the top to the Shaker Table and let it sit overnight in the clamps. Sunday I got to spend most of the day in the shop and got the bottom and top rails installed, cut the top down to its final size, and began to sand the be-Jesus out of it. Got it down to 220 grit, installed the top (somewhere during the day I also installed the drawer stop in the back), and now, except for the drawer pull, construction is done. This projec...

Kitchen Remodel #14: The Veneering gets going again

1887 days ago by Karson | 12 comments »

Well it’s been 232 days since I last posted on my Kitchen remodel. It’s not that I haven’t done any work. It’s just that I haven’t posted. I’d built the base cabinets and installed them in earlier blogs and it was time to get the drawer fronts created. Let me say this, “My wife is a trooper, she is willing to live with the mess (begrudgingly), but she still puts food on the table and doesn’t make me take her out to eat until it’s fin...

Kitchen Remodel #7: Cabinet building continues

2133 days ago by Karson | 15 comments »

Well I’ve still been busy building additional cabinets. I’m working on the lower cabinets, because the upper cabinets need to match placement of the lower cabinets and I’m now working myself into a corner. That’s the sink corner. Old picture. It’s just to the right of the range. So what I’ve accomplished is building the cabinets to the left of the range. The range is being moved about 18” to the left so the cabinets that I’m building...

The counter top is from the old cabinet. i plan to put down Corian. I’m doing it myself so I’...

A LumberJock offered to me a most wonderful gift. Some time in his shop.

2223 days ago by Karson | 16 comments »

No it was not an offer of free wood. A posting on one of my blogs last night was a offer of most immense proportions. The offer was to allow me to use his shop and his time to work on a project for my wife. Here was his offer I immediately responded yes. The LumberJock was none other than our respected Lee Jesberger I mean here was a LumberJock that built 36 kitchens for one customer. Here was a LumberJock that built a $100,000 kitchen for another customer. He was allowing me to be h...
