Part 1: Around the window DVD/CD shelving

01-20-2010 06:49 AM by Rustic | 1 comment »

Well, The Honey do list is getting smaller. I am on to the biggest project so far. SWMBO and I have been talking about a shelving unit to store all our DVD’s and CD’s. Well, I have a starting point. The wood has been purchased for 2 of the units. As well as the material for some of the shelves. These will be 6 feet high and about 12 1/2 inches wide with 1/2 inch shelves. My plan is to do a rough up of the carcass so I can get the placement of the shelves.Before I start working ...

Part 2: Major screw up today

Well today was not a good day. I measured the spot for the 1st dado 3-4 times. Thought that I was dead on. When I went to check it I was at least 1 inch off. Then I realized that I di not take into consideration the bottom piece. The inside dimension is going to be 12 inches. I thought about modifying the design slightly, but that would compromise the whole thing. So tomorrow I am going to start again. I now know the dimensions needed.

Part 3: So far not so good

Here is what I have so far on the window shelving. Had to stop to get TS fixed. The switch went out on it. The pics are of 6ft 1×6 select pine and 1/2 inch pine from Johnson’s workebench.I was able to set up and test fit the dados. I will have my TS back by next tuesday. So this is what I have done. The only thing I have not taken a pic of yet is the actual dados that I have already cut. Hope this helps. BTW I am going through withdrawls without the TS.

Part 5: Not working again. Time to get started

02-14-2010 10:41 PM by Rustic | 5 comments »

Well, I got a call on Friday that I was no longer needed at my job. (very disappointing). So now I can get back to the task at hand of building these damn shelves. I visited with Jockmike2 yesterday and may be willing to try his suggestion of using my router to do the dadoes. I am going to do some math before I decide to do that though. I still may be able to use my dado set. Will keep y’all posted. Rick

Well, It was fairly quick that I got the first one done. The second one I need to get some more 1/2 inch pine to make one more shelf. Then SWMBO will paint them. I still have to make the piece that will go under the window and put a board across the top to finish it off. Should have that done next week. Will post pics later. Thanks guys and gals. Rick

Well. My part is done. I have built all the units 3 total. Nancy (my wife) is painting them. I will install them when the paint is dry. I will be taking pics after I install them.
