There is a countertop style that's easily made and well within any woodworker's capabilities. The process involves attaching a wood edge trim to a panel, called the substrate, and covering the top with a high-pressure laminate. These laminates are made with decorative surface papers impregnated with melamine resins that are
There are a number of options and safety features that can be added to your crosscutting sled. One woodworker painted the blade guard board red as a reminder ol the danger zone near the blade. Some have Installed Plexlglas guards above the saw blade path, and a few others have built a small enclosed box on the back of the sled where the blade Is exposed when the cut is complete.
It is, therefore, vitally important that the woodworker should understand exactly what kind of structural material it is which ceaselessly moves in sympathy with its surroundings, and what precautions he can usefully adopt to minimize that movement. Surface protection with paint, polish or even metal coatings may conceivably delay the natural process but can never entirely arrest it and it is not generally realized that while age itself may exercise a certain restraining influence, no matter how old the wood may be, the innate tendencies will continue to persist throughout its effective life.
Modern hardware now gives us the opportunity to vary drawer styles and construction methods. Side- and bottom-mount glides with three-quarter and full-extension capabilities, along with positive stops and closing features, have opened a world of design opportunities. Low-cost metal drawer glide sets, which consist of two bottom-mount drawer runners and two cabinet tracks, are simple to install. Installing the new drawer hardware demands special attention to the drawer body width, as most of the hardware requires very precise clearances to operate properly. Otherwise, building high-quality drawers is well within the abilities of any woodworker or hobbyist.
Since its first publication in 1970 The Technique of Furniture Making has established itself as the bible for all woodworkers. However, in nearly twenty years there have been considerable changes in the craft, and so this book has been revised thoroughly in order for it to continue to be as useful and relevant to today's furniture makers.
The basic tools of woodwork and the elementary processes of sawing, chiselling and smoothing wood are widely known, and detailed repetition is hardly necessary. What is of concern here is the specialized application of these basic techniques to the fabrication of project components, usually of small dimension, which will eventually become pieces of furniture. Therefore, although the tools employed and the methods of manipulating them are in principle the same as for any woodworking trade, the furniture-maker must always endeavour to work to precision limits. So although he may use the same kind of saw. chisel, plane, etc. as any other woodworker, the saw will tend to have finer teeth, the chisel will be of the lighter, bevelled edged variety, the smoothing-plane will be the standard tool but it will be keener and more finely set. In the main, therefore, his tools will be orthodox but more numerous they must be the very best of their respective kinds and he must be scrupulous in...
ParticJeboard (PB) and medium-density fiberboard (MDF) have become popular as a cabinet-making material in the commercial casework-industry and are now being accepted by the hobbyist woodworker. Some of you may have tried these composite boards when they were first introduced and may have been disappointed. But today's products are far superior to the early offerings.
