Bathroom Wall Cabinet

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Bathroom Wall CabinetAfter completing our bathroom vanity earlier this year, I made a wall cabinet to match. I originally planned to have the mirror on the outside of the cabinet with the door hinged on the right so I could see into the mirror on the opposite wall for fixing the back of my hair. Thankfully, I have a very wise and helpful husband who suggested that I place the mirror inside so the door opening would make access to the inside easier. Dah! Why didn't I think of that!The mirror is held in place with little plastic mirror holders from which I cut the offset. I ended up having to pad it with felt so the mirror wouldn't rattle. I had initially planned to cut a broken thick mirror but realized it would weigh too much for the tiny hinges with the added weight of the raised panel; hence, the mounting adjustments.The horizontal parts hold the cabinet together with sliding dovetails.The crown molding is made up of a leftover piece of molding I had made for picture frames and a bullnose piece added at a 22.5-degree angle.
The knob is a larger version of the vanity pullout knobs. It's too big but I didn't want to pay $12.69 to get the right one (knob = $2.70; postage $9.99). [I should probably just order $50 worth of merchandise and get the free shipping!]
The towel bar is a vinyl-coated closet rod. [I won't make the mistake again of using a wooden dowel to hold anything that gets wet!]
And here are a couple pictures of another wall cabinet that I made a few years ago as a 50th anniversary gift.Comments and questions are always appreciated.L/W

32 FordA friend at work asked me to make a 32 Ford model for his dad, not the greatest lookin but seeing how the year is older than I am I can”t complain, his dad has a “duce rodster” and he wanted to give him a model of it. the supplier of the plans says it takes about 70 hours to make each one , but I will admit that I am way over that number of hours for each one..

Tablesaw Outfeed Table

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Tablesaw Outfeed TableI built this Outfeed Table for my SawStop tablesaw. It is based on a plan that I found in a February 2009 edition of Woodworkers Journal. Needless to say it was not designed for a SawStop saw, but fit very nicely on the saw with a few alterations.The outfeed table is designed to fold down in front of the saw when not in use. The core is made from a couple sandwiched pieces of .75” MDF, and topped with a single color (white) laminate. The collaspe of the table is accomplished from the extension piece sliding into the base of the 'leg'. It is secured in the base using a single bolt latch.The outfeed table dimensions are 44” x 28.25”.
