Cabinet Doors and Hinges

08-03-2017 01:19 PM by Scott1958 | 3 comments »

Hi Guys, a relative novice at woodworking, I recently took on a cabinet project for my workshop from the special Small Shops issue of Woodsmith. It is a basic wall cabinet using 3/4 plywood and hardwood of your choice for door frames and face frame. I used maple. Doors are inset and they were my first ever mortise and tenons. I must say that despite a couple mistakes along the way I was very pleased with the mostly finished project until it came time to install the doors. The first boot camp ...

How to Make a Floating Shelf

Shelves are great for storage, but sometimes the brackets can be an eye sore. A floating shelf comes in handy in these circumstances. In this video I go over how easy it is to make floating shelves. Hit the SUBSCRIBE button for more woodworking videos.

Building the Spine Desk #4: Now That's Better!

02-09-2016 09:56 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

[Above] After having some special alone time with my band saw, I cut out the new pieces for the brackets. Before removing the tape, I broke out my new friend and sanded the curved edges. [Below] Breaking the tape shows the dadoes I made on the pieces. This time they came out perfect! The pieces fit together pretty tight. [Below] So I glued them together and clamped them. [Below] So now it’s just a matter of drilling, sanding, assembling and a little more cutting.

Building the Spine Desk #3: Two Steps Forward, One Step Back...

02-08-2016 10:20 PM by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

[Above] Here’s the fix for the bracket size problem. There’s so much glue surface on it that I’m confident it would hold. But… [Below] When I put it on the spine, I discovered that I hadn’t thought far enough ahead in my fix. The side pieces are not long enough to cover the spine segment completely. To be exact, they are 3/4 inches too short=the thickness of a spine segment. :( [Below] So I’ll dig out that scrap piece of very similar plywood ...

3D Wall Art: Minecraft Edition

08-26-2015 12:27 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

I had a lot of fun making this project. It wasn’t complex or even involved any real type of joinery like usual. I did get to use my bandsaw a lot which was fun. I haven’t really used it but to make a few cuts here and there. The Ridgid bandsaw did great with cutting out the letters. Another fun part of this project was that my wife helped me paint. I enjoyed spending the time with her and just having some good conversation. Check out what the great teamwork accomplished in the video. View o...

Boston Red Sox Marquetry Hanging #1: Design, and first night's progress

06-26-2014 07:57 AM by jmartel | 3 comments »

After seeing a few of my other veneer works, I was approached to make a Red Sox wall hanging for someone to give as a gift. Seeing as how I am still looking for more experience on this marquetry kick I’m on, I decided to go for it. Now, I’m not a fan of Baseball period, so don’t let this logo make you think I’m a Red Sox fan. We decided on a rather large size of 24”x24” overall, which will be more beneficial to me for the small pieces that needed cutting...

Work(shop) in Progress #19: Bar Clamp Storage

12-24-2013 08:14 PM by PurpLev | 10 comments »

I just went over some old pics and noticed I never officially posted this one, so here it is. This is how I have my bar clamps stored and organized (by length) at eye level so that even if one falls, it won’t do much damage (to me) as well as making it easy to reach and grab what is needed: Cheers!

New Shop! #3: taking down the back wall.

06-30-2012 09:06 PM by Ryan Haasen | 2 comments »

Today we tore down the south wall of the shop. My Dad, my (twin) brother and I started at 7am and finished and around 2pm. We started be removing the tin, the taking out studs and posts with chainsaws and sledge hammers. A scissor life made this much easier then using a ladder. There were four large wooden posts which were about 4 feet in the ground that were pulled out by a Deere 50D mini excavator. We also had to remove the existing garage door. The reason we took down this wall today is so...

The Puyallup Fair #1: Gearing up

08-13-2011 12:50 AM by GodofBiscuits | 6 comments »

As some here know, I enjoy entering my woodworking projects in the local Fair Competitions. This year is no exception. Last year I entered a Wooden geared clock at the Orange County Fair in Southern California. This year I will be entering the same clock in the Puyallup Fair in Western Washington (My new home). I learned a lot at the OC Fair about displaying my clocks and how the way it is judged makes a huge difference in how it is awarded. The clock was delivered to the OC Fair in pieces, s...
