Shaker Wall Clock #2: Finish and Hinges

05-27-2009 06:05 AM by thiel | 1 comment »

So… I realized that some of the slight design modifications I made to the clock plans now mean that (once finished) you won’t be able to set the clock or change the battery! :) Gotta rethink some things. The original plans call for butt hinges mounted to the side of the clock case (on the outside). Instead, I’m going to use some rear pivot hinges I found at Lee Valley. They’ll be totally hidden, and they mount (mortise free) to the back of the doors with pins...

GARDEN BENCH WITH WEIRD JOINERY #1: STARTING THE PROJECT

05-26-2009 09:27 PM by stefang | 17 comments »

My wife wants a bench at the end of the garden so she won’t have to go all the way back to the deck next to the house when she just wants a short rest from her labors. The area she wants it in isn’t visible from the deck and so we don’t need anything elaborate, but I thought a rather heavy bench in a modern style and without finish could be practical, long lasting and low maintenance. The idea is to just let it weather to a nice silver-gray color. I won’t brag about...

Juniper Log Furniture : Floor Lamp #3: Scribing / Shaping

05-26-2009 08:24 PM by Tim & Candy Hicks | 4 comments »

Okay here is one of the most tedious parts of this lamp. Here are pictures of how the lamp limb looked before we started shaping it to the base. There are several types of scribing tools available, but we have not been able to find one that works for us. To start the process, we find the point where the limb is the higest from the base. This is our starting point for the line that we draw to start shaping. We use a pencil compass for our scribing lines. The line has to stay level / perpe...
