    Grandpadave52. Got another bookshelf to do. This one I'll try making it looks more Art and Craft style and it would be smaller than the one I just finish. But been waiting for the new on- off switch for my table saw for 2 weeks. I got the sides cut when the switch went out. Be my luck it be here later this week and I won't be able to do anything till I get back from another trip and it my last trip for this year I hope.

    Thanks Lew

    Well don't know what happens to my post earlier this morning seems to have disappeared. No telling what I did wrong. Finally finished this project after 3 out of town trips and some other activities that kept me away. It a lot work to make this in 3 sections for my small shop. The side and back panel is Birch Plywood from the home center. I was not too impress with it but that what my wanted. The face frame and doors frame is Red Oak lumber with 1/4 inch Red Oak Plywood panel. The shelves is what the home centers called Select Pine or Clear and Better Pine. It the closes that I could come up with to match the plywood. And yes my wife beat me to it in filling the shelves up beforwe I got the picture taken.
  4. What's On Your Work Bench?

    Skiler I was out of town for few days. Well as for being beginner, I started about 26 years ago with jig saw, circular saw and old black and decker fixed base router to make a little old step stool my wife wanted. When done is was pretty ruff looking. Still have it and my wife will not let me toss it out the door. Guess that when I got bitten for woodworking. Basically I'm self taught. For years I watch The Yankee workshop. I subscribed to several woodwoking magazine and bought some books to learn. Some years I didn't do any woodworking due work and other things in life keeping me away. I know I maybe better than a beginner. But there is some more to learn and I know there more out there to try. Bending wood and veneering along woth learining to do intrasia. I'm good but I'm not that good is my motto. It help me to keepp trying to do better on the nerxt project not matter what it is.

    John The cabinet bottom I did it as dado and the back as rabbit cut. Basically the drawers were cut as rabbit and just glue and couple brad nail from my air gun. The glass door frame was nothing more than mortise and tenon. The bookshelf is actually not attached to the cabinet top. The bottom shelf is dado and did the top section in rabbit as well the back panel. The rest of the shelves are adjustable by shelf pins holes I drill. Contruction to me was pretty much straight forward. The wood and plywood is Red Oak. The stain I used is MinWax Provincial and the clear is Minwax Clear Semi-Gloss Polyurethane. Drawers slide arwe full extension slides.

    Handy Dan. Sheet rocking it and hiding it is definitely a bad idea from the boss. She had put her foot down on what she wants.

    Thanks. From the looks of it, That the way some carpenter built it back in the mid 70's. The more I keep looking at it, I most likely build it three sections. Got my material list worked up. Time to go get the plywood and at least get it cut to width.
  9. Next Project

    This one may present more of a assembly issues than the actual cutting. It basically nothing more as another bookshelf, but it is 92 inches tall, 52 inches wide and 12 inches deep. From front of my table saw and my workbench which serves as both the out feed table and assembly table is 9 ft. 6 inches long. But only 40 inches wide. I would prefer to assemble it in one piece. But think I'm going to have to assemble it in three sections. Anyone have a better idea on this?

    Well I finally got around to getting this project done after several other things that delayed me in getting it finished. What you think? I still considered myself as a beginner. Several for my friends think otherwise. But they are not woodworkers.

    I stained it with MinWax Provincial. Then used Minwax semi-gloss polyurethane. I thought I had taken the picture but not finding it in the camera. I'll take a picture of it sometime Monday. I'm having a glass put in on the door side and was told they have it ready Monday.

    The top is almost 6/4 . it measure 1 1/8 inch thick after planning rough cut lumber from 5/4 if I remember correctly. The board is Red Oak.What on my workbench? My question would be which workbench. Currently two have mostly scrape wood and lots of junk on them. Last week I had a cabinet on my big workbench and now in setting in the house waiting for the other half.

    Grandpadave. Glad to be back. Hope John Morris can. I don't even remember how my old profile and log-in was. Chocolate donuts with cream filled is my favorite. Thanks
