  • Re: Let's see some project pics!

    The picture doesn't do it any justice, but this is the floor to ceiling wardrobe/closet/TV stand I built for our bedroom remodel. It was my first attempt at making doors. It's 8ft high x 12ft wide x 2ft deep. I used Lyptus hardwood and mahogany ply.

        Hello all. I do believe this is my first post. I `d like to thank everyone for there honest input when other members post ideas and how- to`s. i have learned a few things.
        I thought it may be time to post some of my pics. I currently an working on a solid Red Oak dining table that is 67x67. The largest projet to date. Made form 90% recyled material from work, which was 2x8 with a lot of bore holes!
        A lot of table saw work, which the T3650handles just fine, but I did eat a blade or two.
        My helper is in there too.

        A nightstand organizer.

            My Wife's B-Day Present.....She saw a $300.00 jewelry cabinet in a magazine and asked if I would make it for her. I basically made it from wood already in the shop and did not have to buy anything except the mahogany veneer and the brass hardware. The only thing missing are the door hardware and a small box that sits at the bottom of the main cabinet. The earring holder dowels were to be felted but she decided against it. I took me since mid February because I have been trimming a house (the finest trim job I have ever done, for another post) most evenings but she is very pleased (I may not be heard from for awhile as a result!). The whole story can be found HERE.

            Best Wishes....

              Zeno, nice work! Gives me some ideas for projects.

              What did you use as the substrate for the veneer and how did you apply it? Do you have a vacuum system?
              I put it all back together better than before. There\'s lots of leftover parts.

                Thanks VASandy...

                I used a piece of tempered hardwood that was sanded on the smooth side with 100 grit and contact cement. Worked nicely.

                  Hey All....

                  Been awhile since I posted here. We have been busy building an addition for my Dad and things are a little hectic. Anyhow, I made the time to build a new outdoor Dining table which we desperately needed. It is made from 5/4" Mahog with chestnut granite inlay and 5 coats of spar varnish top and bottom. The legs and frame are oak with spar over flat black oil-based paint. The story of its construction can be found HERE.

                  Best Regards All,

                        Thanks for sharing, Zeno. Beautiful work. It's also nice of you to post the link to the slide show. I like how you did the mortises. Your taper jig is pretty cool, too.

                          Thanks all,

                          I really had fun with this one.....the first mortise and tenon piece I have built. Plus, the mahogany at the yard has been cheap ($4.20/bf)!

                            Which brand of mortise machine do you own, and how do you like it????
