Office Cabinet #2: Pin Time

03-05-2021 03:41 PM by Tom | 0 comments »

This part can be stressful. You really need to be warmed up and ready to saw accurately. Try taking some practice cuts. Sharpen up your tools. Avoid distractions and stay focused to avoid miscues. It is really somewhat exhausting, but try to stay calm and relaxed to avoid tightening down on your tool grip. Work to carefully laid out knife and pencil marks. Use a sharp pencil too. I mark the pins from the tail boards that have been numbered. The numbers for each corner are marked on...

Office Cabinet #1: Dovetails!

03-03-2021 07:25 PM by Tom | 2 comments »

I am finally starting a new project. Lately, I have been doing more home maintenance, painting walls which is kind of boring. I want a cabinet to store various office supplies and that matches the style of my existing office furniture. This will be a cabinet that sits on the floor and stands about 36 inches high and 32 inches wide. I plan to have two doors on the front with adjustable shelves. The case will be dovetailed and it will be fitted with a top piece to set books or knick knac...

My Woodworking Journey #3: Completing My Workbench with Storage Drawers

01-29-2021 09:38 AM by Gerald Etto | 4 comments »

In my previous post, I talked about creating a compact workbench to enjoy woodworking from my apartment. In the past week, I managed to complete it by adding storage drawers. I don’t really have much experience building cabinets, so I took a different approach. I build the drawers how I made my boxes, with miter joints. The tricky part was getting the drawer measurements right. I made the drawer fronts from Southern Yellow Pine and the drawer pulls from Acasia to match the rest of...

Just starting out...

01-04-2021 06:56 PM by Shout19 | 4 comments »

I’ve been reviewing all of the great work that everyone has posted on Lumberjocks, and I’m impressed! I have been dabbling for many years, and have recently begun building out a formal workshop. I have LOTS to learn, and look forward to sharing some of my projects here. As a “learning project”, I decided to use a bunch of scrap lumber to build a mobile work table for the workshop. It has three drawers (built from scratch), six cabinet doors (those I already had),...

Ok, 2 planks hauled to the shop…Plan being, that these two would become the top, bottom and both sides of the cabinet…sides need 37-1/2” long parts, the other two need to be 30” long…out of a pair of 1×10 x 6’ boards.

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #7: Other Projects - Outfeed Cart

10-07-2018 07:32 PM by Bill Berklich | 2 comments »

Life isn’t linear. Nothing, at least in my life, follows a straight line or well-marked path. On the way to working on the Tool cabinet several other projects happened. I’ll start with the Outfeed Cart. I’ve had all of my sanding supplies just stuffed in a box – actually three boxes and I’ve long wanted a place for everything so I can find it, get it, and store it. Because of my situation I need a couple of features 1) it had to be mobile. 2) it has two slip under my Table Saw wing and 3...

Hanging Jewelry Box

02-24-2018 03:31 PM by wrenchhead | 0 comments »

I made this jewelry box to store necklaces and rings for my daughter as an bridal shower gift. I made it to hang as a small cabinet but it would be just as nice sitting on a dresser. In this easy wood project i use a mix of hand tools and power tools. This was a fun weekend woodworking project! I hope you like it.
