Gluing Veneer To Radius Box Parts, "Made Easy"

1825 days ago by Dennis Zongker | 31 comments »

Gluing veneer to hardwood can actually be a good thing. As long as the hardwood has the proper moisture content, which is between 6 to 8 percent. Also, the smaller the piece of hardwood the better. Wood only expands and contracts, the width of your board. Also I like to veneer both sides, to balance the hardwood. In the old days when furniture reached a zenith in Europe, between 1700-1900. Most of the highest quality pieces of furniture had veneer glued to the legs & aprons, which were...

Morris Chairs #1: Lumber purchased

1826 days ago by Dave T | 5 comments »

We’re changing an unused portion of our finished basement into a reading and TV area. The room is almost ready, the nightstand is out of my shop so now it’s time for furniture for this new space. Our personal tastes lead more toward Arts and Crafts, so a natural choice for seating are Morris chairs. I’ve been wanting to build one for awhile and have several plans from magazines and books. All are the same base design of course, but slight variations. I haven’t dec...

My First Bench #3: The top is done and attached to the base

1826 days ago by IkeandBerry | 1 comment »

I finally got the top to my new bench glued up and attached to the base. I ended up using dowel pegs to attach the top to the base. Doing this enables me to remove the top if I need to in the future, but holds the top to the base securely while I am using it. Take a look at the pictures to get a better look. I modified plans that I found to build this. The original plans are Bob and Dave’s Good, Fast, and Cheap Bench. You can find them if you Google the description. 90% of this...

R4511 replacement saw

1826 days ago by Cato | 3 comments »

I assembled my replacement saw that HD delivered yesterday. The new saw did not appear to have any significant design changes, but it does have much better quality control, machining, and fit. My old saw was #0534, and the new one is 06069. It went together fast as I had done it before, but also every nut and bolt went on smooth. No thread issues at all which made installing the granite extension wiings a short task. I figured the shoe would drop when I installed the fence as my old ...

Sewing Center #3: "Stained" Poplar

1826 days ago by SouthpawCA | 2 comments »

I tried a number of different applications that would enable me to stain the poplar on the sewing cabinet. None really worked all that well. I sanded the doors down to bare wood and was ready to call it quits and paint it like I had intended in the first place. That’s when I stumbled upon the bottle of TransTint Reddish Brown #6003 that I had left over from a project a few months ago. I figured I might give that a try. I mixed the TransTint into a quart of Varathane WATERBASED poly...

Barrister Book Case Tutorial #7: Building the sides

1826 days ago by Scarcraig01 | 4 comments »

Hey readers, my apologies for that last post being published twice. This post will show the construction of the sides: Because the maple ply that I bought is not a rotary-sliced veneer but a Pivot slice, it appears as if its glued up boards, each one being around 6”. So a 24” inch wide piece looks like 4 boards glued up. To make this work to my advantage, I laid out the pieces and used the track saw to make the first cut in a way that would make my sides look like the ...

Barrister Book Case Tutorial #6: Rockler's Barrister Slides

1826 days ago by Scarcraig01 | 3 comments »

I was going to use Rockler’s Barrister slides because as I mentioned before I’m not very happy with the current set up for how the doors work using the plansnow solution of groves and pins. This solution works alright once you get use to it and it is pretty simple and cost effective, but I was really hopeful that I could get the Rockler hardware to work because it looked like it would have made for a smoother operation.
