After 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
A 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..
I 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”.
