Office Cabinet #10: Door Frames and Sawing Tenons

05-20-2021 07:29 PM by Tom | 3 comments »

I completed my door frames last week and they turned out pretty well, so far. I need these doors to be very square and true with no twist. The proof will be in the glue up with the panel. The process is basically the same as the frame for the back panel, but they are bit narrower, about 2” wide. Also, I used a 1/4” groove instead of 5/16”. I mortised in the groove with a 1/4” chisel. The important thing is to keep the chisel in alignment. I had very good luck ...

Small Projects #45: Cat proof screen porch

05-04-2021 02:41 AM by Madmark2 | 3 comments »

The screen porch screens have seen better days. They’re at least 15 years old and showing their age. Where we live in fla development is displacing natural habitat of all sorts of critters — including what appears to be Florida panthers. Big tawny cats are regularly spotted in this area and last fall one of our kitties got out and met an untimely end. Since then the porch has been off limits for both kitties and puppies. Seeing the cats longing for the outside got me thinkin...

Small Projects #29: Insulating the Garage Door

05-04-2020 12:01 AM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

Just insulated the garage door. Cost me $80 for four 4×8×2” foam panels. Very thinly foil skinned on the front side and an equally thin film logo printed back. 3/4 complete, gotz 2 move stuff around to finish. Cut the foil side first, snap, fold, and cut the back film. Use a fresh razor blade or very sharp knife. I cut a partial row off the short side of a sheet. Each 4’ wide piece is cut to length to fill two adjacent spaces in the door. The lengths are cut by placing the facto...

Restoring The Machine Plow Plane (Kikai Shakuri Kanna)

08-22-2017 01:16 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 1 comment »

View on YouTube If you haven’t noticed I am a big fan of the Japanese methods and thoughts behind woodworking. And as such I do alot of reading on the topic and ever since I saw a drawing of one of these planes in Toshio Odate’s book on tools I have wanted one very badly. I’d wager that each craftsman has his favorite tool, something that he just enjoys for no reason other than “he simply does”. this tool is it for me. The challenge of it I find invigorating. W...

Quick Tip #6: Miter Sled

09-16-2016 03:31 PM by Kent Shepherd | 2 comments »

I frequently do smaller moldings in cabinet doors and other projects. I find it easier and safer to use a sled on my table saw rather than a miter saw. I can see my mark to cut by better this way. The small waste pieces don’t fly around as much. Years ago I was measuring a cabinet door job. As I was sketching the cabinets, the trim carpenter was cutting some small molding. The end piece flew off the saw and hit my face right by my eye. It bled a lot, but it turned out fine. However,...

How I built custom interior doors for around $40 each

09-04-2016 12:46 PM by Wes Harville | 6 comments »

I have low ceilings in my basement, so I needed doors that are about 6” shorter than standard. I would have just bought them, but the factory would just cut 6” off the bottom leaving me with a 2” bottom rail which would have looked very unproportional. I didn’t want to spend the time or money on building frame and panel doors so I spent a week wracking my brain until I came up with this method. Hope you enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FzE470rqnmk!

Odds 'N' Ends #2: Seal Up A Drafty Door

01-23-2016 01:06 AM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

Ugh, the woes of learning new video editing software. The footage of the whole point of this video was lost. I feel like I still was able to get my point across in the video, but it definitely isn’t my best work. I am releasing a few of these shorter videos this week as I learn how to use Premeire. Please bear with me. I hope you find this video to be useful.Enjoy! Seal Up A Drafty Door

Shop Remodel #16: Writers block plane

12-10-2015 12:49 AM by bearkatwood | 6 comments »

Early this morning the lights flickered to life in the shop revealing that deadly silence of a blank page. Much like a writer with a clean sheet of paper in the type writer (they still use those right?) or an artist with a blank canvass. I sat and stared at the blank sheet of paper I had lain out representing the door to be made. All too many undrawn lines lay waiting for me to choose just the right one knowing the wrong one would spell disaster. Well I guess just like making an omelet, a...
