The agony, the agony, some more agony and the ecstasy #1: Client meet

02-20-2013 10:22 PM by 404 - Not Found | 3 comments »

Here I am, popping my blog cherry. A warts and all look at what it’s like at every stage of the journey of making a bespoke piece of furniture. Like all jobs, it begins with a phone call. I’m not that well organised to have an appointment diary. A wardrobe for her boyfriend’s Mom. A scribble on a bit of paper will do, date, time, directions, a mental note that I have to be there at that time on that day. I’ve done loads of things for this girl before, a Department S...

The Beginning Cooper

I work for a local historical village as their Master Cooper. This little video clip is from our last class held back in November showing different stages of making a bucket. Sadly for me, I didnt take any clips of Friday’s class when they were working on the staves. Saturday they were doing finish work.

Kid's play table #2: First mortise and tenons

07-04-2013 03:47 AM by rfusca | 3 comments »

So, we’ve done a kid’s play table for the living room, but it was one of our first projects and did the whole thing with pocket screws. Now, I’m not anti-pocket screw, but one of our next projects is the dining room table…and I just don’t think that PS are appropriate there. So, I started trying out mortise and tenon. These are the first mortise and tenon joints I’ve done for a project. I think they turned out pretty well – the shoulders are rea...

Custom Cabinet Construction #6: Woodworkery vanity sides

09-07-2013 12:03 PM by rhett | 3 comments »

Let me start by saying, much love to the guys and gals who work in the shop with the intention of keeping track for others. Working wood is one thing, documenting, organizing and editing is another. Rough cutting a plank of 8/4 ash. Ripped oversize on the TS then squared 2 sides on the jointer. Back to the TS to square 4 sides. Drumsanded out the saw marks then cut to length. I now have 4 pieces of ash 2” sq by 30.5” and 4 pieces 2” sq by 22R...

Mike and Pat's Kitchen Remodel #8: Drawer Construction

09-21-2014 09:49 PM by MT_Stringer | 3 comments »

We have had rain for several days as the remnants of the hurricane that hit the Baja has drifted over Texas and onto our heads! So I couldn’t go to the lumber yard. Instead, I went through my lumber rack and dug up all of the maple I could find and a few pieces of poplar. I managed to mill enough for the six top drawers. These drawers have 4 inch sides so there were a few pieces that got glued together and then milled. The drawer fronts have half blind dovetails. The rear of e...

Wheelchair Furniture #1: My Pet Project

09-11-2007 01:48 PM by Russel | 3 comments »

A couple years ago a young lady I work with was shot during a carjacking attempt and left paralyzed from the waist down. At the time she was pregnant with her first child and asked me to develop nursery furniture that would allow her to care for her baby from her wheelchair. This experience led to Village Lane Furniture which has become my pet project. Because of this young lady, I became aware of a furniture audience that is frequently overlooked; wheelchair parents and people with disa...

While not new to the web and certainly not new to turning lumber into sawdust, I only found this site a few weeks ago and decided to join. Wow over a dozen “welcome” messages in only a day or two…. I’m impressed with the camraderie here to say the least. Hopefully, I’ll become a useful addition to the site. There’s certainly plenty I can learn from the rest of you fine folks. A little about me.. I’m 55 yrs old, just recently out of work alo...
