Wood Scraps..... to save or toss?... that is the question. #2: Let me clarify......

06-11-2019 04:05 PM by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 3 comments »

I guess I need to explain my situation a bit more with regard to these ‘scraps’.... - Mostly poplar and plywood from building custom cabinets for clients. Not a good source for bbq. - Cutting boards? See aforementioned species and lumber type. - I have a 950 sq. ft shop in which to build my projects. When you have a 110 liner feet of cabinets…. I have to go outside to turnaround. No room for a deluxe 4×8 ‘on wheels, mind you, scrape wood bin’. ...

Alaska Cabin #3: The Live Edge Counter

02-06-2019 02:51 AM by Matt Snyder | 0 comments »

When I moved in to the small 13’ x 15’ dry cabin on the fire base in McGrath, AK it was nicer than most of the primitive cabins on base. Some of the walls had rough cut white spruce panels and there was a little hand made furniture from previous crafty resident firefighters. In the kitchen area the counter was a white painted piece of plywood braced to the wall with a simple cabinet underneath. I figured I could do better and thus began my first major woodworking project that started m...

Before and after #1: My kitchen improvment

05-24-2018 07:19 PM by Nadia | 3 comments »

Two years ago, I bought my second home alone after my separation. Having only one salary to pay the monthly payment and little time and knowledge in the renovation, I was advised repeatedly not to buy a house, but rather to opt for a condo. My idea was made: I could not afford to buy a new house, but I had my father join and semi-retirement to help me renovate. So I made several changes and here is my cooking before and after. Contrary to what one might think, the changes are rather...

Kitchen Countertops in Sapele #1: Board selection, alignment and glue up

08-28-2017 02:29 PM by edapp | 0 comments »

My wife and I have been in the process of updating our new home for several months. We are trying to knock out all of the projects that would displace us before we move in. One of those projects was replacing the old royal blue corian countertops and sink. The only way were going to be able to accomplish this within our budget was for me to make them out of wood (which I do not mind!). Sapele seemed like an obvious choice due to its resistance to water, moderate price and beautiful grain and ...

All about the process - Making an Ulu

06-17-2017 10:35 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 1 comment »

I have made a couple of these Ulus and each time I try to figure out a way to make it better and quicker. The main shaping part is the time consuming part, figuring out the curves and measurements. This time I believe I nailed it. Check it out and subscribe.

New Book - SketchUp For Kitchen Design

10-06-2016 10:14 AM by BobLang | 1 comment »

I’ve just released a new book in enhanced PDF format (50 videos are embedded within the 195 pages of text) about using SketchUp to create 3D models of kitchens. If you’re planning to redo a kitchen, or are in the business, this book starts with the download and setup of the program, shows you how to use SketchUp to model a room, fill it with cabinets, appliances and counters, and generate both realistic renderings and technical drawings from the same model. Special introductory...

Kitchen Island #1: Seeking Lumberjocks advice on joinery within custom-designed kitchen island

08-15-2015 05:58 PM by GJK | 1 comment »

My custom-made western red cedar fence is done and so is the kitchen rehab, including cherry cabinets and a matching cherry ladder system I designed and purchased from an old-line rolling ladder maker in NYC for reaching the tallest cabinets near the 10’ ceiling: After cutting through walls to open up space above doors and changing all door trim to 8’ high trim, I had two glass workers (an experienced gent in Alabama and a lady in Telluride CO) each make two transom ...
