  • unfinished project

    I know that this is not a scrolling project but I am so proud of it. It is my first time making furniture and I think it came out pretty good. Not finished yet, still have sanding to do before I apply a finish and he top has to be screwed in place but I am so proud that I wanted to show it off to someone. Just learned how to glue boards together and how to make a drawer.

        Looks good Diane, If I am not mistaken this is what the bragging section is for. Not just scrollwork.
        I also would like to see more pictures. Is that a draw on top? Also what wood did you use it has a nice grain and color.

            Yes there is a drawer on top and a door on the bottom. I plan to have two shelves on the bottom. Don't know what it will hold yet.
            I used 1x3" pine boards and tried to pick the better ones at the store. Glued them together to make large boards. I built the cabinet with those boards and sanded like crazy to have a nice finish.

                  Looks great, Diane. I'm sure you got a sense of achievement from that.

                  Only thing I ever built were a couple of different Adirondack chairs last summer - and I was amazed when they worked and looked fine ..lol

                  There's a problem with one of them though - it's still in the basement! Major learning experience: measure the width of the door out of the basement before you assemble a chair ....

                    Because of all the variety of stuff I do in the workshop, I get those pieces of scrap that are too big to toss, yet too small for a project in itself. Go get yourself a small biscuit joiner from Sears or Harbor Freight ($19-29). I have stacks of oak and poplar drawer sides and back pieces I glue together with my biscuit joiner and they make super boards to work with. There really is no such thing as a junk piece of wood. If you can't put them together to make a bigger board, the least they can be is cheap heat for the shop.

                    Nice job! You gotta be adventurous and work outside the box....

                      I borrowed a biscuit joiner from a friend to do this project but when they come on sale I might invest in one.

                      When I was small...my father decided to build himself a boat with nice cabin. He cut all the pieces and then dry fitted the pieces in our basement. Smart way to do it. He then moved everything to the garage in the back of the house and glued and joined everything together. Painted it and was it nice.
                      Then, when spring came around he decided that it was time to bring it to the country. WELL, he didn't measure the garage door before, SO, they had to tear down the side wall to take it out of there.
