Part 1: Progress of latest project

04-24-2008 04:31 AM by jjohn | 9 comments »

Yet another project in the making. My wife asked me to build her a scrap book cabinet to put all her many papers and books, glues, tapes, ribbons, etc. Enough to build a 5 ft. by 5 ft. by 14” deep with about 20ish slots for paper, 10 drawers, ribbon holders (which I haven’t quite figured out yet) shelves to hold the many albums she has already made. Using 3/4 ply. with oak veneer. (Lowes on sale) and press board 1/2 thick. Also plan to use some oak facing on the drawers, and po...

Part 4: Drawers finally done on one side

05-22-2008 12:05 AM by jjohn | 2 comments »

Haven’t had opportunity to get back to the shop for a couple of weeks now. First time today was able to spend about 6 hrs. there. Cleaned up the shop first thing. Everything was everywhere and no place to cut wood or anything else for that matter. So, after some time cleaning up all the tools and such started back on the drawers. I said in the last entry that I was going to dovetail all the drawers. Well that didn’t happen. Had to use finished plywood on the sides. Couldn’...
