Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #21: Hinges and Hardware - Cabinet Complete

01-26-2013 12:51 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 71 comments »

When we left subject cabinet, the last part of the build was done, as the upper door pieces were cut and fit and glued up. Stiles ran long on the doors, as Lysdexic correctly pointed out, to prevent spitting of the entire stile while the mortises were cut. So we know the doors needed a trim length wise. What I didn’t realize is how close I had made it re: the rails. You can see in the pics below I had to preserve all of the rail material… Whew… There was ve...

Building miniature ebony and rosewood boxes

12-26-2015 06:11 AM by Marty Backe | 15 comments »

This is a long form (i.e., not a 5 minute video) instructional video showing how I make very small boxes. These were made from ebony and rosewood, and have maple inlay and maple & leather interiors. I make them as ‘thank you’ type gifts. If you want just the highlights, watch the first and last few minutes of the video.

Printing on Wood (Transfer Using Acrylic Polyurethane)

10-21-2015 05:07 AM by TheCrafsMan | 26 comments »

I wanted to share this method because I’ve tried many of the available printing-on-wood techniques, including citrus solvent transfer (don’t use acetone, by the way) as well as Liquitex and Mod Podge. Acrylic Poly Finish (aka “acrylic polyurethane”, “polycrylic”, etc.) is not only cheaper than the above, but you end up with a cleaner image because it is less prone to rub off during the paper-removal stage, it is clearer, and it dries much faster. As a...

Just stumbled upon this online resource, and thought it would be of value, so here it is:http://chestofbooks.com/home-improvement/index.html#.VazktfmqpBd This is an online collection of (seemingly) full text volumes, many from the early 1900’s. The range of subjects is astounding, and the number of volumes available is quite exciting. It’s not just trades and crafts either. Here are the subject headings from the Home Improvement section:—- An ultimate Do It Yourself co...

First we v...

September 2014 #1: Some Completed Projects

09-26-2014 12:51 PM by ThumbHammer | 3 comments »

Here are some completed projects that I have been working on in September. As you can see I like to use my laser to enhance projects. Project 1 is done with recycled Redwood. I like to play with what ever I can read in the wood grain as this next image shows. The horse looks like it is splashing water with its foot but that is actually a knot in the wood. This is a typical scene from my neck of the woods. Project 2 is done with Poplar. Project 3 is done with Teak. A...
