My very first

Furnished content.

My very firstI have been woodworking except for my college years, since I was 18 years old and had never made a box joint box.I have seen many shop made and expensive box joint jigs but did not want to spend time to make one or spend money to buy one. So one day I said to myself ”self, there must a simpler way”. So playing around with my router table and my router sled I made spacers that fit between the router sled and the router table fence and made this box. For this box I only needed three spacers.The body is 1/4” maple, the top 1/8” Midwest baltic birch plywood that I veneered with mahagony veneer on both sides, finished with several coats Varathane satin water based polyurethane, 4 1/16” diameter neobidium magnets, and inset hinges.This is another “stuff from my shop” projects where I only used stuff in my garage.Total material cost was $0.00!

Custom Built In Cabinets

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Custom Built In CabinetsWhen we purchased this home last year we knew we wanted built-ins around the fireplace…but we also knew that no matter what we got from a builder we wouldn't be happy. So once I freed up a few other projects I got this started. The overall design is somewhat Japanese (shelves inspired by George Nakashima), with the shelves representing a tree where the central board is the “trunk” and the shelves themselves are the “branches”.The cabinets are cherry ply with soft maple face frames and doors/drawers, finished with water-based tinted lacquer from Target Coatings (more on that later). The tops are also cherry plywood with a cherry live edge banding on the front.The shelves are made from two very gnarly slabs I got from my lumber guy for $25 each. I cut them to length and screwed a piece of plywood into the back to create a straight edge that I could use for resawing. I mostly got things resawn straight, and I kept a lot of the gnarly parts of the boards in the final product to emphasize the rustic, natural feel of the live edge. The shelves are sprayed with a satin watco lacquer.The shelves are mounted on a central “trunk” of walnut using what I guess you would call a bridle joint. The trunk itself is finished with Dark Walnut danish oil, and mounted to the wall with some extremely beefy wall anchors with the screws hidden behind the shelves.I think this was a pretty straight forward build, with no new techniques for me except for the funny way I came up with to resaw the twisted slabs. I did try the Target Coatings lacquer, which I absolutely hated. Though the look of the final product is nice, I have to say that the target lacquer was not pleasant to spray as it constantly dirtied up my HVLP gun and was hard to clean up in small nooks/crannies. Additionally, months after spraying it is still “sticky” with other parts, so if you stack parts, you better put something between them so they don't stick. Would not recommend.All-in-all I am extremely pleased with this build. It brings a unique and striking focal point to our living room that's not just the run-of-the-mill built ins.Thanks for looking. Cheers!
