Simple Built-In Bookcases And Trim Work


Just started this project tonight. Its nothing fancy but I like posting photos.

Its two rooms, similar to this....


In each room, they want book cases on one wall, upper half. New casing, base, shoe and crown.











I built the carcasses for one room and milled up the face frames. I will go back for a few hours tomorrow to build the shelves and prime the rest.

Looks good. How do you like the truecoat? I just bought one last week and have been impressed with it so far.

Re: Simple Built-In Bookcases And Trim Work


im guessing the shelves are going to go above the half wall ledge?

best use of space, ive done a few of those, really maximizes space for storage

Re: Simple Built-In Bookcases And Trim Work


Yup. That is where they are going. There are three main rooms in this part of the house(basement of a split level). The first room was done already, I am duplicating it in the others.

I spend a few hours at the shop today. Ripped the shelving, added the edge, sanded and primed.



The edging is just a stock PFJ Garden State Profile.



Belt sander and 5" RO make for quick prep.


Got this meter for x-mas...this is a fresh batch of poplar I just got. I bought 100 bd feet. Nice stuff. The boards where more like 4.5/4. I planed them down, ripped one edge on the rail saw and then passed it through the table saw to clean up the opposite edge. All the boards are 15/16 heavy and some of them are 14" wide. Bought it right from the mill.



Primed.



My brother helped me surface the entire batch of lumber the other day. Not all of its for this job. I got 100 bd feet of poplar and 65 bd feet of Red Oak. Locally grown, harvested, milled, dried and now locally turned into woodwork.





Had a decent system going. Took 3 passes. I would infeed, he would stack the outfeed, once they were all through, I turned the planer around and just fed all the lumber back the other way. We stacked the lumber in the middle as it came off the planers final pass, then I ripped one edge with the rail saw, passed it to him, he ripped the other edge and stacked it on the rack.

Its good for small stuff. I am planning on buying an airless that pulls right from the gallon can. If I had it for this job, I would just build everything at once and then spray it all at once. The Truecoat is great for the one-off priming, or priming things in batches as it doesn't waste alot of material or take up space. I have also taken it to the job site to spray full sheets of plywood with primer.....

The only thing I ever painted with it was a small T-111 shed using Behr Exterior paint...it shot it just fine.

In total I have put about 5 gallons of Zinsser Primecoat2/Bullseye through it. 1 gallon of Zinsser CoverStain and 1/2 gallon of Behr Exterior Paint.

How did you decide on the Makita saw? Do you like it? Over Festool, which is what I have been considering. I don't know if it is worth the money or not.

Makita has always been good to me. I have had this saw for about 3 years now. It was a better value for what I got.

You can't go wrong with either. You will wonder how you got anything done with out a track saw once you start using one.

Nice set up you have going there TBF. I wish I had the space to buy that quantity of wood some times. I am sure if would save some $ and be nicer stuff.

Re: Simple Built-In Bookcases And Trim Work


In all honesty buying the lumber pre-surfaced would save alot time except I would have to be careful about what I accepted. Turning the rough sawn into S4S on my own is time consuming and would be costly if I didn't do it all in one shot. I do it during "down time" , ,time I would otherwise "waste" watching TV, typing on CT, etc etc.

On the up side I always end up with flat and straight lumber that is consistent in thickness.

Its been a great saw. Coupled with a supply of sharp Oshlun 28 and 48 tooth blades I have been very impressed.

Re: Simple Built-In Bookcases And Trim Work


So for S and Gs I picked up one of these pressure fed, HVLP guns. I thinned the primer down 10% with water and gave it a go. Seems to work well... infact I am pretty sure I don't have to thin it down next time.



We will be doing the install this week so I should have some more photos soon.

Re: Simple Built-In Bookcases And Trim Work


I just bought one of those Truecoats this week after seeing this thread. I have a Graco 390 for spraying most jobs, but it's just a pain to set up and clean for small stuff. Used the trucoat to spray out casings, base, wood window and door in a bathroom remodel. Worked pretty good. Need to get the hang of it though, because it puts out a much larger volume of paint than I am used to compared to an SG2 or SG3 gun.

For a quick prime and paint on a door or two, or small area work, it seems like it will fit the bill. I don't mind trading brush time for prep time either when it comes to a spray finish.

Yeah, the volume of paint it shoves out can be a bit of PITA, I think they just released new TrueCoats, TrueCoat2 or something. It made will all replaceable parts, you don't throw it away after 100 gallons. I think it also has a pressure/volume adjuster on it.

I have that identical planer. It's a nice machine, isn't it? Work looks great.

Once you go to airless, you won't look back. Those sprayers have their place though.

An organized shop is a must for me. I start to twitch when things get cluttered.
