The techniques that go into making this drum are similar to those you’d use for building a small box. The difference with this project is that you get to play with it when you’re done.
This storage cabinet provides space for your drill bits as well as most of your drill press accessories. A clever system of racks and shelves allows you to customize it to suit your needs.
We designed this project to look more like a piece of furniture than a kennel. It provides a wonderful home for your pet, while at the same time blending into your own home.
The case of the kennel was painted with Benjamin Moore “Balsam.” The cherry parts were stained with Varathane “Traditional Cherry” gel stain, followed by a couple coats of clear lacquer.
There’s always a great deal of satisfaction in using a tool that you’ve made yourself. This pair of bevel gauges is easy to make and will give you a lifetime of service.
Taking a cue from the Scottish Arts & Crafts tradition, this classic armoire offers plenty of storage space inside. And you’ll enjoy the challenge of building it.
The armoire is stained with Varathane “Traditional Cherry” Gel Stain. Then, it's sprayed with a couple coats of clear lacquer.
