Joan's Work Area Shelves.

09-23-2017 11:31 PM by Just_Chuck | 6 comments »

I’m building my wife a shelf system for her carving corner in the garage. Carcass is 3/4” sanded plywood and will hang by a french cleat on the wall. I finished the glue up on the carcass and surprisingly it’s mostly square. The Home Depot plywood had some unique warp to it but I got everything cut square and the glue and clamping pulled it into shape. It’ll be about 60”tall and 30” wide – I’ll hang it off the floor about 14- 16” –...

The primary strengths of a Shopsmith in my situation ...

My First Router Table #4: Drawers and a Top

07-25-2011 03:09 AM by Dave | 1 comment »

I didn’t get any photos when I built the top but I basically glued together two sheets of MDF and added some laminate countertop from that big orange box store down the street. I trimmed it with red oak, chamfered the sharp edges, and stained it with a combination of TransTint Dye and General Finishes Candlelight.

My First Router Table #1: The Design

06-27-2011 02:00 AM by Dave | 5 comments »

After a year-and-a-half of woodworking I decided I needed a router table of my own. There are a lot of great examples on this site and they inspired me. All you have to do is browse my favorites to see a few of them. This router cabinet has a lot of firsts for me. I’m using it as both a learning experience and a prototype to convince my wife that I can build something that doesn’t look like I did it in high-school shop class. That’s why you’ll see a bit of over-k...
