  1. Card Scraper till

    I guess you could say this is another installment in tills for the space challenged shop. ;-) I got the idea from a picture I found in a magazine shops, could have been fine woodworking. I had planed to put another shelf below it to hold my card scraper sharping jigs but decided to change the...
  2. Dobby

    Wooden figure Dobby from Harry Potter. I think it looks good)) Soon with Voldemort going to a new home
  3. First time making shaker doors

    I wanted to make some doors to add storage to the bottom of my miter station, and figured I might as well learn a new skill while I'm at it. The concept of tongue and groove doors is simple: all 4 pieces have a groove, and 2 of them have a tongue on each end, which allows you to snap the...
  4. coffet table

    I had this Walnut live edge board for a long time. The problem with this board is that it was 7 inches narrow on one end. So this is how I solved that issue. The ends are purple heart all grain running in the same direction.
  5. Work bench

    Well here it is, my first project posting on LJ. I built this bench a thousand times in my head while deployed to Afghanistan last year. It took the better part of two months working 1-2 hours a day in the shop (well garage actually, but "the shop" sounds more like I know what I'm doing) to...
  6. Mitered Raised Panel Vanity

    This is my first try at a raised panel vanity. Turned out pretty good but could have been better. I think I should have started with regular rail and stile but loved the 45 degree mitered doors I saw on MLCS and had to try it. It killed me to paint it white but that is what they wanted. The...
  7. cherry rail and stile cabinet door

    OK. Perhaps this isn't a completed project in the usual sense, but it's about as far as I'm going to take it for a while. It's a skill-building practice project. I have in mind twin small spice boxes with something like this for the doors. If I build those, I expect I'll use narrower rails...
  8. My first real rail and stile project

    A customer asked me to install cabinet doors to cover a cubby hole in her bathroom. The existing cover was a couple rectangular pieces of unfinished luaun that would slide back and forth. The opening is nowhere near any standard size, so I decided to build the doors to my own measurements. I...
  9. Shaker Sideboard

    I wanted a sideboard to go against a bare wall near my kitchen. I was looking for something unadorned that I could put some handtools on. I consolidated a few designs from all my Shaker books and fit the dimensions while keeping the proportions. I started out with some local cherry that had...
  10. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Hey Gang, My next project is to replace the exterior shutters on my house. They are raised-panel-type and I'm wondering: is a conventional rail-and style router bit set going to give me a stronger joint than a tongue and groove joint that I could make on the table saw? As far as materials go...
  11. Woodworking Skill Share
    I'm about to start routering my rails and stiles and I got to scratching my head a bit. I have two tall pantry doors, around 60×16. I based the height off my parents pantry which was wider. I figured if theirs didn't have problems I should be able to (hopefully) get away with it, except whoever...
  12. Joinery
    My latest project is new kitchen cabinets for our house. I've run into some difficulty and I'm stuck. I just can't seem to get the rails and stiles to fit snugly no matter how many shims I add to my router bit. I contacted the seller of the bit and he sent me a smaller bearing, saying that...
  13. Designing Woodworking Projects
    When building cabinet doors should the width of the rails and stiles increase when the overall size of the doors increases? I've made kitchen cabinet doors with the rail and stile dimensions of doors I already had. I would like to make some larger doors and I'm wondering if I should increase...

    A simple carcase I'm still hunting for space to end the clutter in my 1-car garage shop. I found some when I moved part of the PVC ductwork from my dust collector a bit so I could open the overhead garage door again. In that space, between the dust collector (and its separator can), hoses and...

    What went on before... My family is just too big… Either that or my house is too small. We have four children at home. Two are college age, and two are in their early teens. Thye two youngest ones share a bedroom…nothing uncommon about that. However, they definitely do not want to use bunk...

    The Base In this episode I give a tour of the base, talk about its construction and give some details on the router bits used.

    hanging the doors, and some revelations Here's my most boring time-lapse yet - sanding up the cabinet doors to flush the rails and stiles, and prepare it for finishing. Speaking of… something I'd heard whispered around here a few times came to mind the other day while trying to get extremely...

    Done: Simple Headboard Build Walnut Headboard Build A quick project that is needed but is also a nice mental diversion from the daily grind. Material pulled from inventory is (very) rough cut 'wormy walnut' sapwood that isn't good for much, but is something around 5/4 thick and is long enough...
  19. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I have been working on a design for a hope chest for my niece as a graduation gift. I am planning to use rail and stile/frame and panel construction using walnut for the frames and quarter sawn sycamore for the flat panels. I plan a natural finish. I guess my concern is the top. I have been...
