Old Projects #15: Bathroom Medicine Chest

01-26-2021 11:57 PM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

One of life’s little peeves is fumbling in the dark for an aspirin or other item at night in the bathroom. This medicine chest is split into his & hers sections, each with an automatic LED lamp and clear shelves to keep you from brushing with Brylcreme! His & Hers lighted medicine chest. 1/2” × 3-1/2” S4S oak was used from the local (over priced) big box store. Each door was made with a captive metal insert. I chose this pattern & color, but many variations are a...

Yin Yang centerpiece / serving boards #3: flush trim success

01-19-2021 04:24 AM by BillGo | 0 comments »

I set out today to use the spare glue ups to try and address as many of the four issues identified in the last post. Because I was starting with the glue ups I already had, I could not address the grain orientation issue, but i could try to address the other three issues: the router bit, the prioritization of lines to flush trim approach, and the direction of cut. The bit: This is the Whiteside UDC9112 compression flush trim bit. I kept the “bite size” about the same to be c...

Yin Yang centerpiece / serving boards #2: flush trim failures

01-18-2021 05:28 AM by BillGo | 3 comments »

Overnight, I glued up two panels I would use for the yin/yang pieces. I made one of maple and one of walnut, both 21” square. This would give me enough wood to make two of the centerpieces… When I looked at the pattern to make one, there was so much waste, it was only slightly more wood to make two. I took the squares and using the templates, traced them out on the bg squares with a little space around them so I could cut them apart with the band saw. I should have taken more p...

Woodsmith CNC Router Thoughts #1: XY Axis Fine Adjustment Idea

01-15-2021 06:08 AM by Mike_190930 | 0 comments »

The Woodsmith CNC has been a joy to work with these last few months. Maybe I’ll get around to posting some of the projects done on it, but I am having just as much fun adding to and modifying the machine itself between projects. One modification that stuck in my mental attic was how to adjust the squareness of the X and Y rails, and if that was really needed at all. Before deciding to commit to a potentially messy teardown and re-build, I had to carefully check the squareness of Y to...

Small Projects #34: Cat Can Corral

01-08-2021 11:36 PM by Madmark2 | 4 comments »

The better half asked for a corral for the cat food cans on the kitchen counter. The design was to be as simple as possible and leave no hiding spots for any potential miniature livestock. Because of the size of the cans the corner support space was limited. To maximize both internal space and strength the side slats are dado’d into the 45° corner posts instead of overlaying as in a normal crate. The carton the cans come in is 7”x14” and allows 1-7/8” vertical space...

Old Projects #12: Build a Tile Topped End Table Tutorial

12-22-2020 01:08 AM by Madmark2 | 2 comments »

I made several variants of this table, all with the same tiles. If you think the oak prototype is nice you should see it in jatoba (I’m still looking for more pics) Oh yeah, its been 20 years since this original build post and that table is still going strong. One of the bottom slats got trod upon years ago but otherwise it is holding up well. Its been used so much that the pattern on the edges of the tiles has begun to wear off. It’s had no end of spills and slop on it with li...
