Sandpaper shelves #2: Rear frame and panel glue-up

11-04-2021 03:26 PM by Dave Polaschek | 8 comments »

Got a short time this morning (I’ve got to go get my Covid booster later this morning) so I got the rear frame of the box glued up. First up was cutting a rabbet for the rear panel to sit in. I marked lines a quarter of an inch from the inside of the opening, and set my circular saw to cut just under a quarter inch deep. Set each of the frame pieces in my vise, flush with the top of the vise (so the circular saw would have something to ride on) and after some practice plunge-cutting on scr...

Laundry hamper #1: Introduction and doors

08-26-2021 08:51 PM by Dave Polaschek | 41 comments »

I want to build a laundry hamper for the bedroom. I figure it’ll be frame and panel construction, with doors with a lattice in them so the stinky clothes can breathe a little. And I want to build it around my existing plastic laundry baskets, which are just the right size for our washer and dryer. So I made a sketch (four squares to a foot for the bigger drawings, so each square is three inches, four squares to an inch for the profile of the sticks). The lower left shows the side view, the...

Office Cabinet #3: M&T Frame for the Back: Mostly Pictures

03-08-2021 08:49 PM by Tom | 0 comments »

I will keep this pretty short. The back of my office cabinet will be a panel and frame. The frame is joined with mortise and tenons. The main thing is to use square and true stock so that you end up with a square frame without twist. I spent quite a bit of time getting my boards square on the ends. Then I cut a 5/16” groove with a plow plane and carefully mortised inside the groove with a 5/16” chisel. It is a blind mortise so it is only worked from one side to 1-1/2”...

Roll Around Tool Cabinet #7: Frame Parts: Grooves and Stub Tenons

01-28-2017 07:14 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

The last few days I have been milling and producing the frame parts for this frame and panel construction tool cabinet. The frame and panels are placed on the back of the case and the four doors on the front on the case; the two small doors on the top that cover adjustable shelves and the two large or long doors below. Inside these two long doors are seven drawers on the right side of the case and several adjustable shelves on the left side of the case. The drawers consist of a large o...

Sweet Chest of Drawers Build #12: All Glued Up and onto the Drawer Fronts

07-30-2013 09:53 PM by Kyle | 2 comments »

This past weekend I did a pretty massive and ridiculously stressful glue up. It wasn’t as bad as I’m making it sound but with how long I’ve been working on this chest of drawers, I just wanted it to come out square and solid. I’m pleased to announce that I was successful. Because of the magnitude of this glue-up, I didn’t bother taking any pictures. The biggest part was gluing the outer frame with the panels in place, and then while all of that was safely clamped...

Sweet Chest of Drawers Build #6: Why the heck would I do this to myself?

12-01-2012 07:49 PM by Kyle | 4 comments »

Ever hear the expression, “you are what you eat?” Well, the day I decided to do this, I must have eaten a whole box of ding dongs. For some strange reason, I decided to figure out what I wanted to do with the back, before I started with the front. Why? Well, I don’t know. .....Instead of doing what any sane person would do, I chose to make the back, just like I made the sides… Frame and panel. Seriously… I know it’s going to be up against the wall but, mayb...

Sweet Chest of Drawers Build #3: The frame and panel sides

11-28-2012 11:42 PM by Kyle | 3 comments »

My Dad came and visited me back in June and he helped me get started on this. I bought the porter cable router 7518 and a nice big raised panel bit to go with it. I thought I would start by building the panel first and then the frame around it. The reason I did it this way was because I didn’t want to go and buy more and more wood without using what I had so I took two of my more wider boards, cut them in half lengthwise, and edge jointed them to make two panels. I don’t have any ...

Outdoor Furniture #12: Patio Planter Boxes - Finished!

06-26-2012 10:44 PM by Retsof | 1 comment »

I finished painting my patio planter boxes today. I like the way they came out. Thanks to the mortise and tenon, and panel construction, they are very sturdy. The were a lot of dadoes, mortises, tenons, and trim to cut for this project, but it was a lot of fun fitting all the pieces together. The colors are Martha Stewart’s “Monk’s Glove” and “Chianti” from Home Depot. Working on these in my garage attracted a lot of attention. As I was fi...
