Door making and my favorite time in the work shop

24 Aug Plowing the groove for the panel.

I love being in my workshop in the morning.  I have an east facing window up high and the morning sunlight streams through it on a a nice day until about 10 am.  Having sunshine beaming in my window and the doors open to let in the cool morning breezes make for a wonderful atmosphere in the shop.

Such was the case for my Saturday morning work on the doors.  Here are a few shots of my most enjoyable morning.

TV Lift Table Drawer Fronts

22 Aug

Well, now that I figured out my logo (thanks again Tom!), I better go do some woodworking.  So today, I fit the final fronts to the drawers and added oil rubbed bronze handles so I could get rid of the ugly blue tape.

And the winner is ..

Mr. Buhl put this together for me and I love it!

Brusso Hardware

15 Aug

For many of my project I use Bursso hinges/hardware.  Its quality stuff that I got turned on to by Marc at the The Wood Whisperer.  The hardward is substanical quality brass and they even include the proper size steel screws to pre-thread your brass screw holes.

A couple weeks ago they sent out a call for project photos and I sent in a few of mine.  In response Brusso did a really nice blog post on the information that I sent them and to boot, they sent me a really nice mug!


Check out their stuff if you haven’t already.

PS. If anyone can give me a hint at how to get rid of the ugly brown border around my pics, lemme know.  Geez!

More Drawer Progress

13 Aug

I’m always surprised how much time things take.  The drawers have taken a surprising amount fiddling and fitting.  But they’re done and ready for fronts.
