TV Stand #4: Bottom and Shelf added

08-14-2011 02:05 AM by Angela | 2 comments »

I’m ready to add the bottom. As member GregD suggested I’m going to use Kreg pocket holes to secure the bottom and shelf in place. I cut some support boards at a height that would allow me to rest the bottom on them and then screw the bottom in place. I turned the work piece upside down to make it easier to screw it in place. Once the bottom was secured, I cut the support boards down to the height I needed for them to support the shelf. I then installed the shelf...

Question /Gluing solid wood panels

05-14-2014 06:26 PM by Rafe Demers | 2 comments »

I am currently working on a Jewlery Box and had some questions. I will be making the box out of Sapele with a bookmatched Birdseye Mapel panel for the top which will be held in a dado/groove. The bottom panel will be Sapele and secured the same way. The corners will be mitered with Wenge keys to help strengthen the joints. My question is should I glue in the bottom and top panels? The top and bottom panels for the box will be about 1/4 inch. I know that when making cabinet doors in the past I...

Mini hand tool cabinet #3: Four panels

09-15-2014 07:35 AM by JSOvens | 1 comment »

I was able to spend some time last weekend preparing the boards I milled to be glued into panels. In the original plane I posted at the beginning of this series, the depth of both the wall-mounted portion and door were 4-1/2”. Since 2×4’s are about 3-1/2”, I decided to make one panel for each side just over 9” with three 2×4 boards, and then rip them in half. This more efficiently uses the wood than doing each 4-1/2” panel separately, and also gives som...

TV Stand #6: Finally gluing up the top

09-02-2011 03:19 AM by Angela | 1 comment »

I last left off where my boards for the top where seriously warped. I also was waiting for my new jointer. I received my new Powermatic Jointer and I love it. I wish I knew how to use it better but it will come in time. Jointing ProblemOne question I wondered about it when I tried to flatten a board. I jointed just one side of the board until it was flat. The only problem was to get the board flat the jointer removed so much wood that I wasn’t able to use the board because it became to...

Contemporary Cross project #3: Initial cuts of interior parts

11-29-2010 02:48 AM by kevinw | 0 comments »

We are now ready to begin sawing out our components. By hot gluing the two boards together this allows us to cut two identical pieces of each part so that they will fit properly. Note that I am only sawing out the interior shapes of the cross at this point. This will allow me to have better control when re-gluing. Here the vertical piece has been cut out. Keep in mind that you must get the best cut possible. Be sure your blade is narrow enough that it can saw the curves without backing up ...
