Project #3: Pull Out Shelves

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Project #3: Pull Out ShelvesI promised my wife that I would make some pull out shelves for the kitchen. They didn't turn out perfect but I am learning a lot as I go. They do roll out smoothly on full extension slides. Frame is red oak, bottom is 1/4” birch plywood in a groove, and finish is Danish oil. Rabbets and grooves were done on my router table, Titebond III was used for the glue-ups, and I used my new Delta table saw to cut the bottom (works great, so much easier to use than the small job site saw that I had before).

Chisel box

Chisel boxGot a new set of Japanese chisels that were nicely arranged in a box with molded styrofoam holders. So, I recreated it in wood, using the chisels to pare the beds and dovetail the box.The beds for the blades were cut by hand and then split out with the chisels.The handle holes were drilled at the press with a piece of sacrificial wood to complete the material.The dovetails are handcut. The rabbet in the box is not.Of course all of this was preceded by the process of setting up Japanese chisels – setting the hoop, flattening the back, and sharpening. They are a delight to work with now!

Table made from reclaimed Hickory.

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Table made from reclaimed Hickory.Had a friend ask me to help him build a table from some reclaimed hickory that he purchased. First time I've worked with hickory not bad, hard on the equipment. As usual spent a bit of time trying to get the stuff straight enough to work. Project came out pretty good, the wings lift up and are supported by 1/2” pipe that slides out from underneath the main table. Finished with satin polyurethane, 5 coats on the top 3 on the bottom.
