Part 1: A light in the Chaos: rough cuts

01-03-2021 06:53 AM by PurpLev | 0 comments »

It’s been a while since I posted, or did anything woodworking related (other than a few short single day turnings, or the likes). Living in a small house with not much work space I find it difficult to get in the moment of creation as there is so much overhead around it. This project was in the works for quite some time (in my head), and I am quite happy to have been able to get myself to engage in it. My current work space involves a single workbench that is mostly used for storage. I rec...

Part 2: BJTS: Box Joints with a Track Saw

01-03-2021 07:42 AM by PurpLev | 5 comments »

If you’ve seen the last photo in the previous post, you probably saw the hint for the box joints planning. I like box joints in general, and find that they will have a great visual benefit in this project (Beyond the obvious strength and alignment), Since I planned to have more than a few of those than would make sense to hand cut and chisel cut them, I figured I’ll try to setup some fixture for harnessing the track saw for this. Sort of reversed tale saw box joint sled idea (minus the sled)....

Part 3: Glugluglug...

Not much to say. Basic glue up. A chance to finally use the parallel clamps, which definitely made setting up a bit easier without fidgeting with holding the clamps vertical (although my pipe clamps were just as easy, albeit without a deeper reach)

Part 4: Timing is everything

01-04-2021 03:46 AM by PurpLev | 9 comments »

Not much progress since the glue up other than my glue bottles just arrived, now that the glue up is done with. Ironic. Was following some threads here lately, and even though I was doing alright with my mustard bottles, figured It would be nice to have a few bottles that can be dedicated and easier to work with and ordered direct from FastCap: Time will tell if these are a better users. Now with the glue up done, I’ll have to wait for the next project :)

Part 5: Breakdown, and Up

01-13-2021 03:38 AM by PurpLev | 0 comments »

Taking something fully assembled and cutting it down to pieces… and then putting it back together again. This is what this part is all about. Dissassembly So… with the box assembled and glued as a whole, it’s time to slide it open for some doors. first, after measuring for the correct depth of the doors (which will house some content), slicing on all sides and using blue tape and some fillers to keep the cut sides together while cutting the other sides to give it stabi...

Part 6: Holdem Holdem

01-13-2021 11:55 PM by PurpLev | 0 comments »

setting up some holders for the cups. went with a few design options in Shaper3D, and all things considered, went with one option that seemed the most reasonable to put together with what I’ve got in a short amount of time (tools and materials). since this is a prototype of sorts, it would be fine either way. My concerns that were harder to identify in a 3D app is accessibility and comfort in use. so we’ll see how well this will turn out. Starting with some reclaimed pallets th...

Part 7: Floating top

01-15-2021 02:36 AM by PurpLev | 1 comment »

This project will have a main cabinet that would have a floating appearance, and will sit on top of a single drawer lower cabinet. For the floating look design I ended up going with 4 spacers with bolts going through them that will bolt from the underside of the lower drawer cabinet (hidden by the drawer) and threaded into the bottom of the upper cabinet. I found a few plastic spacers (I think they were part of a TV wall mount that were never used), and enlarged the holes to fit some 1/4-...
