Small Projects #43: Kitchen drawer & front replacement

04-11-2021 11:30 PM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

Fall 2019 I replaced the old, black slab, kitchen doors with nicer farmhouse doors with bead board inserts. Then Jan 2020 had a MI and then C19 hit and the drawers got put on hold. SWMBO wanted “farmhouse”. Just now (Apr 2021) trying to update the drawers. They’re black slabs with cheap white plastic pulls and the fronts are inseparably attached to the cheap 1/2” plastic coated MDF boxes. Old “bottom dollar” non-wood, stapled drawer. I neede...

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),...

Finally, a Workbench Drawer

10-26-2020 07:12 PM by Tom | 4 comments »

When I built my joinery workbench about 2-1/2 years ago, I had always planned to add a workbench drawer. but I could never quite get around to doing. In fact, I built a whole other Moravian workbench and added a drawer to that before I finally got to the drawer on my joinery workbench. I am between projects at the moment and I finally committed to making the drawer. I am not sure if most woodworkers would like to have a workbench drawer, but I think it’s great if you use hand tool...

Moravian Workbench #12: Tool Storage

06-20-2020 01:26 PM by Tom | 0 comments »

Although this Moravian workbench is meant to be portable so it can go to a job site, it also can serve as a dedicated workbench in your shop. It is incredibly sturdy and the splayed out legs really resist racking. I plan to use mine as a dedicated shop workbench, although, I may take it to a job site if I am helping friends and family with a special carpentry project. So I made the drawer and shelf so as to be removable to maintain the portability. I am partial to keeping a set of tools...

Easy Drawer Rebuild to Fix Ikea Style Drawer

05-30-2020 06:56 PM by WoodshopTherapy | 2 comments »

A customer brought me a broken drawer. It was made of particle board – not good for repairing. I made this video to show how to rebuild a drawer as simply as possible while still using reliable construction methods. The purpose of showing this is to encourage people to repair their broken furniture instead of throwing it I the landfill. I hope this is useful for a few people and may also help you learn how to build drawers for new furniture. Video link—>

Drop Leaf Table #9: Nails and a Knob

01-07-2020 07:31 PM by Tom | 2 comments »

A few items to finish up. The drawer needs glides to ride on and keep it centered. The original that I based this on had slips of wood that were nailed together in place. So I did the same thing. It was kind of a simple pleasure to use nails for furniture assembly. Screws seem to be the go to option these days. I used Tremont cut fine finish nails and nailed them with the grain to minimize splitting potential. I also used glue. Careful not to nail through the sides! I glued a couple ...

Drop Leaf Table #8: Winterthur, Hinges and a Quick Drawer

01-06-2020 06:03 PM by Tom | 3 comments »

Really starting to wrap up the work on this drop leaf table. Over the holidays, I visited Winterthur for the Yuletide mansion tour. It is really interesting to see all the furniture on display. Meanwhile, they have a nice gallery display of the Dominy workshop and some furniture pieces on display that were made at the shop. One of the items was a “Breakfast Table” aka Pembroke table. Somehow, I missed a picture of the actual table which was similar to mine, but a bit more ref...

Moravian Workbench #8: Installing the drawer

09-22-2019 03:43 PM by Tom | 1 comment »

The drawer will hang from the underside of the oak workbench top and it will extend out under the tool tray. I set the drawer back about 1” from the front of the bench so as to have some clamping surface available without removing the drawer. Since the top is 14” deep, that allows for about 13” of drawer runner mounted to the under side of the top. The drawer is 18” long, so it will extend under the tool tray by about 5-6 inches without support. I don’t think...

Moravian Workbench #7: Building the Drawer

09-21-2019 01:32 PM by Tom | 0 comments »

I enjoy having a workbench drawer to store various hand tools such as marking gauges, knife, try square, dovetail saw, chisel, etc. Storing tools in a wood box of some sort helps protect the them from effects of moisture and moderates temperature changes to avoid the effects of condensation. My workbench is not currently in a climate controlled shop, so I think this is important so that I may keep a small kit of tools with the bench. The original Moravian workbench did not have a drawer ...
