Table Saw Extension / Router Table #3: Working on the top

09-16-2013 05:25 PM by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

I’m going to finish the top and install it before installing the drawers. It should be easier that way to get my hands inside, plus I always build the drawers last just in case my ideal measurements were not met. This wooden piece matches the profile of the edge on the table saw, allowing me to use the rip fence further away from the blade and also use the rip fence to hold my router fence. The piece will be attached on the edge of the router table top. Here is a better view of t...

Dart Board Cabinet Build #3: Building the Cabinet Doors

10-06-2015 03:16 PM by Mike | 0 comments »

Hi All! Thank you again for clicking the link to take a look at what I have been doing with the Dart Board Cabinet Project. This last week was absolutely nuts and I wasn’t able to get everything done that I wanted to with the project. I was able to get the doors milled, glued, assembled, and finished up. Please leave a comment on what you think about the project so far. Recommendations on how I can make the videos better are always welcome. Enjoy! View on YouTube

Sewing Cabinet with Inlaid Metal Tile Accents #4: Door Construction

09-05-2021 10:54 PM by Ron Stewart | 0 comments »

The doors are 3/4” maple plywood slabs with 1/2” wide solid maple trim and inlaid tiles and accent strips. They were by far the most difficult part of the project, mainly because they required a lot of careful routing for the inlays. Finishing concerns added to the complexity. I wanted to paint the trim and accent strips before assembly and attach them after applying finish to the slabs. That meant I needed to be very careful with clamping (to avoid marring the paint or finish) an...

Sewing Cabinet with Inlaid Metal Tile Accents #5: (Adventures in) Finishing

09-06-2021 03:30 PM by Ron Stewart | 0 comments »

My wife wanted a light/whitish finish for the cabinet. Maple is pretty light toned, so my first thought was to use a clear water-based poly finish. When I made the cabinet top, I also made a small test piece. I applied two coats of General Finishes’ High Performance Water Based Polyurethane (flat sheen) to it, and that’s when we ran into our first big problem. In the unfinished sample piece, the solid maple was lighter and brighter than the plywood, which had a darker, pinkish cas...

Work In Progress #4: Canasta Part 4

11-22-2011 07:29 AM by Byron | 0 comments »

So here it is, the final glue up. I over clamped to be safe, not in the sense of clamping pressure but as far as where I was clamping. This glue up entailed gluing all 4 sets of tails and pins with the mitered front (all the same piece) of the carcass as well as gluing in the center of the floating panel. By glueing the center of the panel I control the movement of expansion and contraction to both edges, ensuring the gaps always stay very close to the same, also keeping them as smal...
