Crib #3: Completing the headboard

03-23-2018 12:40 AM by RenB | 0 comments »

At this point I have all the arches cut out except for the small molding piece. Now I just need to cut their length down and add the chamfer in the larger molding I used the router table to cut the chamfer on the large molding. I did shallow passes and used wooden screw clamps to increase the base of the arch and keep it from tipping, seeing as the base was getting narrower with each pass. I then started laying out the pieces together to find the exact length of the arches. I...

Cookbook Shelf Units #8: Biscuits, shelves, prefinishing, final assembly, HOORAY!

12-22-2014 03:49 AM by Greg Guarino | 0 comments »

I’m finally finished, but I’ve fallen behind in the blog description. Biscuits for the uprights:Each upright “leg” consists of a 1×3 and a 1×2 joined at a right angle with a small shadow line. Biscuits seemed like the right method: Then I did a dry fit: Everything went together well enough, so I decided to glue up the “ladder” sides. Although I tend to prefinish everything before gluing, I decided it would be too time-consuming to pr...

Steam Bent Arches

03-15-2012 06:25 PM by Brett | 5 comments »

Hi folks, Here is another video of the next step in the making of the pulpit. I wanted to add some extra detail to the inside so I decided to add some arches on both sides to keep the “theme” going with the rest of the project. This is how I did it. The wood is beech. Thanks for watching!

Arched Bed #3: Bending 1" Thick Maple

09-21-2009 05:43 AM by newTim | 4 comments »

Curving or wrapping might be better terms. Once again Sketchup is a big help in this process. The plan calls for rounded corners on the footboard so yours truly doesn’t bang his shins on them, or when he does it won’t be a sharp corner. This is also another good example of the versatility and accuracy of the Mortise Pal jig. The Dimension tool in the Sketchup model measured the outside of the two staves 1 7/8” in order to achieve a 2 1/2” inside radius with 1”...

Opposing Arch Table #7: Laminating the Arches

11-17-2008 07:54 AM by Blake | 6 comments »

Finally I have the first set of arches glued and clamped in the bending form. I have only made the arches for the hall table so far. Once I finish it I will go back and do the coffee table. Since I only made one form for each shape I did it in two stages. I glued the first two arches yesterday and just got the identical (“opposing”) set in the forms tonight. I used my Thin-Strip Jig to cut the bending strips. That was very repetitive work for a while. I cut all the strips fo...

Opposing Arch Table #6: Building the Arches... Design Challenges

11-09-2008 10:32 AM by Blake | 10 comments »

Like I mentioned before, I am building a matching coffee table along with my “hall table.” I have been making an effort to document the time I spend on larger projects for my own reference. But since I am building two projects together the concept of time is getting a little blurry. I spent a few hours the other day just getting the coffee table caught up in the process. All the joinery is the same as before. I decided to try taping my joints to make it easier to peel off the g...
