Rolling Prairie, IN, US
I did this project for a friend of my son who couldn't find a TV console long enough for his needs. The 6 foot cabinet is birch ply, the frame, edging…
A beautiful piece of work!
John, Nice job on the box and the finish looks slick. Just finishing up on a series of 12 lift lid boxes out of a variety of woods. Hope my finish looks this good.
I'm in, ya can't win if ya don't enter.
I have a box of walnut cutoffs that would be ideal for this project.
My money went into rough lumber this year. It's stickered and air drying so will take awhile before I see the return. I'd love to have a new Unisaw but in no way can I justify the outlay. I did just today order a new (remanufactured) Delta miter saw. I may be sorry but the $100 savings I can put into a blade or my pocket.
Hey, just the book for the new table I'm building.
What a simple but effective solution. Yes, I've used my band saw depending on what blade is installed but this is now a no brainer.
And to Moshup_Trail; cutting small strips on a table saw is easy. 1.Plane your material to proper thickness and 2. Cut the strips so they fall to the left of the blade. Use a strip cutting jig, you can find plans on-line, for repetability.
The shop is never big enough but organization is key. Any hints or help the book can provide would be helpful.
My shelf has been on the drill press for over two years and it holds a set of drills, plug cutters and stop blocks. It swings around the column with ease if needed. It sure beats the flimsy plastic one I was going to buy.
Tommy, I am very much looking forward to the new show. Yes I was sorry to see Norm hang up his TV tool belt but after 38 years I've seen my share of change in business and wood working. Change is good, it keeps us fresh. Best wishes and hope the sponsers come around.
