    I am building my first cabinet with drawers. I did a test run with the 1st drawer by setting it in the cabinet and attempted to place the drawer slides next to it in order to confirm the fit. Turns out I made my first drawer too wide (I am sure many of you are not surprised.) To address this I...

    Hi guys, I've just used my homemade scraper made from a hack saw blade which was not good anymore. I found it easier to scrape the existing finish off a curved drawer edge instead of sanding. I hope this will help someone else, as I don't really like sanding which is messy too. This is the...

    I'm planning to build a couple of under-bed storage bins for my kids' bunk toddler bed, so I have a couple of questions for pros (to make sure I'll not do anything stupid). Because I do not have any tools other than basic ones (hammer, drill, screw driver) or skills, I need to make it simple...

    I am going to build a bathroom four-post table, and was looking at a website explaining how to cut the drawer opening here. This will reduce the height of that board by two widths of the saw. My question: Should I cut the same kerfs from the perpendicular boards to keep them the same height...

    I'm looking for a LITTLE help on how I can get around making a drawer for a bed that comes out and up like a lateral hinge drawer. I have made a schematic on Unity3D if anyone knows how to get it to work ( I sure can't)

    Would be too difficult to make something like this? What do you think?
  7. Wood Finishing
    I am planning a bed/dresser combination w/ a bunch of birch plywood drawer boxes w/ 1" side lips and carved out front-scoops. I really want to use shellac, a finish I've never worked with before (I can hear the sighs from here!). I want shellac because its non-toxic, I can work with it inside w/...

    I built 2 floating nightstands and decided to add a secret lock to the top drawers. I could not find anything online that seemed adequate so I designed one myself. It only costs $3 to make and can be added to the top drawer of any nightstand or dresser. It uses a hinge pin to catch the back...

    So I have gone through hours of looking closely at the "Show us your shop" pages. Thank you to everyone that posted. Tons of great ideas. My 24x24 shop is a mess filled to the brim, with 20ft basscat and stacks of tools, junk, fishing gear etc. I am a true DIY'er, planning for wood working...

    I am a complete novice and I am seeking your advice: in my new house there are some built-in drawers with wood, center mount drawer slides, they are difficult to pull out and LOUD, how can I replace them without tearing the whole thing apart?

    Looking to get a some pieces of scrap wood. I want several different types, i.e. cherry, oak, poplar, walnut, etc. They can be small pieces, because I plan on cutting them down to about 1"x6" pieces to put together for some drawer faces. Any idea where I can get some scrap pieces like this...

    I was building some drawers for a couple vanities for my mother and I have been wanting to make another video for everyone. I figured I would post my simple, but effective, method of making drawers in my shop. It's pretty simple really and doesn't require special joinery or special tools. Have...

    I am building a cabinet for a bathroom and built it 27" deep. I have one drawer and have built it 25" deep. I want to put undermount drawer slides on the drawer but I'm wondering if I have to have the exact depth of the slide. 20", 22", or 24". Can I use a 22" o4 24" undermount slide or will...

    I am building a cabinet for my wife's pastel chaulks. each drawer is 18" wide, 12" deep, 2" high. It is built out of standard nominal 1" poplar (actual 3/4"). I will dado a 3/4" groove in the sides of each drawer to accept a 11/16" rail that I will attach to the case sides. So far so good. My...

    Hi guys, I am trying to build an apothecary cabinet with no (or as few as possible) screws/fasteners. I am making it mostly with dovetails and mortise/tenons (though how to nicely make those precisely located in the field of a piece of wood is another question I have). The only place where I...
