Murphy Bed Side Cabinets #10: Side Cabinets Ready to Prep for Finish

08-07-2009 01:35 AM by Gene47 | 1 comment »

Today was a good day. I managed to get the side cabinets for the murphy bed fiinished and all I need to do now is but some edge banding on the adjustable shelves sand and prep for finishing. I know that at the moment it looks like a hodge podge of material but the face frame and drawer fronts are made of Obeechee and upon the suggestion of a man at the lumber supply place I was told that this wood would stain up and look like Mahogany. I did stain a test piece and it looked like it was...

A woodburning project I did long ago, that had too many photos, so now it's a blog. ;)

I made this wood-burned paddle for my mother-in-law/father-in-law’s living room in like, 2002, I think. I took a lot of photos of it, and I couldn’t bring myself to choose only six for a project post. Plus, this is so old, it’s better as a blog. I just used a standard burning tool, with no fancy attachments… just a fine point. I love to wood-burn! It’s hanging in their living room under a shelf with a ship on it. I hope you like it! :) ...

A Little About Finishing

08-06-2009 08:04 PM by Chris Davis | 5 comments »

I had a LJ send a message about finishing. I thought maybe I’d post the question and answer here and let other LJ’s chime in on what they think or use. Question:I wanted to ask you if you use any kind of sanding sealer on your murphy beds and side cabinets before you spray them with lacquer… My reply:The lacquers that they make now doesn’t need a sanding sealer really. They are so easy to sand there is no point in keeping two products. The companies add a produc...

I'm gonna be a Star!! #4: the panels

08-06-2009 06:56 AM by kolwdwrkr | 14 comments »

I finally found some time to make a little progress on my star door. I did a bit more chip carving on the star itself and had the frame pieces cut. Tonight I made the panels around the star. I decide to plane up some redwood for contrast, and made them 1/2” thick. This makes them sit down in the frame and gives the star more depth. Instead of routing a full raised panel on them I opted for a rabbet and a cove. I used a core box bit to make the cove. So the star has a large cove a...
