Efforts to get my kitchen completely organized are starting to pay off. I just love to open these plate drawers and see everything looking so beautifully organized. I have finally created a low-budget but high-quality peg drawer system. Today, I am providing the details for making a custom dish drawer organizer.
Not long after building my garage/workshop shelves, I saw that there was definitely room for more improvement. Being a blogger who does a whole lot of woodworking, I didn’t relish the idea of all of my junk being on display during video demonstrations, so I decided that I would enclose those storage shelves and turn them into cabinets!
I think that we can all agree that it doesn’t matter how many improvements or renovations you do, if the house is not clean, it just feels old and well, blah. But, keeping a clean house requires diligence on my best days. Keeping a clean house when you have dogs can seem like an exercise in futility. I know, I have been there. I am STILL there. But, over the years I have found some tried and true methods to make my life easier.
Have I mentioned lately that woodworkers are some of the most opinionated and set-in-their-way people who you will ever have the good fortune to meet? If you are a professional woodworker, then yeah, I am probably talking about you. If you are a beginner, be warned! We are going to discuss when to NOT use pocket hole screws!
Have you ever wondered how people get all those elaborate angles in their woodwork? I use to only use them when I was doing an inlay in wood flooring. Then, I started building decor pieces for my home, and I ventured fully into the territory of mitered angles that go beyond the standard 45º cut. With furniture and cabinetry, it is all about creating curves and box shapes. But when you want to get creative with something, you may find that you need some weird angle – like a 50º, 60º, or 70º miter. It can present a conundrum. So, I thought that I would show you how to cut any angle with a miter saw.
