Project Build Videos #1: Cherry Whiskey Cabinet

06-12-2020 02:41 AM by Eric | 0 comments »

This is a whiskey cabinet that I built out of cherry and pine. I got the inspiration for the design of this cabinet from the late James Krenov; who in my opinion is one of the best. Its the first dovetail project that I built and I’m pretty happy with the way it came out. I documented the build and created a video on youtube; so if you would like to check it out here is the link below. I hope you enjoy the video, and feel free to ask any questions, or make suggestions for other videos. ...

Japanese Bird Feeder

12-14-2019 07:54 PM by BuildItYourself | 1 comment »

Hello Winter is coming so I decided to make a bird feeder. I took pine wood waste and got to work. The whole was supposed to resemble Japanese lanterns. I think it didn’t go so bad. The bird feeder smeared with wood stain and secured with wood oil. The whole came out larger than I thought but it is a plus. See how to do it I am waiting for a comments! Show your feeders if you have :)

Getting my carpal tunnel fixed

12-10-2019 08:45 PM by kiwilynne | 20 comments »

Backtrack to the start of 2018 when I started having issues with my right hand and was subsequently diagnosed with De Quervain’s tenosynovitis. A brace for eight weeks and two staggered steroid injections later, the issue hasn’t been resolved. In the meantime, I’ve developed carpal tunnel in both my wrists. I’m having CT release surgery on both wrists tomorrow, as well as having the right thumb’s tendon released. The next few weeks are gonna be a fun time! ...

Building a Semi Elliptical table with a gilded silverleaf top

11-21-2019 11:56 PM by BenhamDesign | 6 comments »

This was a fun build that stretched many of my skills. Figuring out all the angles to produce the segmented edge along the top, was a lot of fun. The gilding process for the silver leaf is something I plan on exploring more textures and colors in the future, and using the spokeshave to shape the legs was awesome. Definitely an underutilized tool in my shop. The table is made from African Mahogany. The top is gilded with silver leaf, and then a patina was applied with sulfur potash to ad...

DVD Cabinet of Ash #11: Door installed, and a PIP

11-12-2019 01:55 AM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Door came out of the clamps ok. But, you would not think it would be so hard to fit a door….grrr, cussing began right away… Trouble began when I laid the door on the case….bottom of the door fitted up nicely with the sides…but, as I went up the sides…case seemed to “flair out” a bit….seemed the two shelves had bowed the sides out….Made a few marks, and planed and belt sanded until the sides matched the edges of the door…Once thi...

DVD Cabinet of Ash #10: Rebates, and a glue up

11-10-2019 03:14 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Had to dig the tablesaw out….I wanted a way to be a little “neater” with the rabbets/rebates… Set up the blade, and the rip fence…I wanted a crisp, pristine ( as Sellers likes to say) wall, that also is to the correct depth. Planes are nice to use…but, they sometimes give a messy look…one rebate being thinner, or thicker…right at a corner…so.. Planes can still remove the waste…until they reach the corner of the wall…en...
