Jewelry Armoire / Lingerie Chest #5: Highlights (part 4)

07-18-2014 03:04 AM by Steve Erwin | 3 comments »

Sorry for the delay. It’s been a busy week. For all the details, head on over to my woodworking blog . In the meantime… here’s the next set of progress images… I finish assembling the drawers and fitting them to their bays. Not piston-fit, but as close as I’ve ever come. I can’t stress how important it is to take your time at this step. Take super light passes off the sides of the drawers and keep retesting the fit to the point of insanity. As so...

Jewelry Armoire / Lingerie Chest #3: Highlights (part 2)

Welcome back to one woodworker’s flirtation with insanity by way of making a Jewelry Armoire for my wife. I’m happy to say that I and all of my new personalities are really glad to be done with this project. For all the details, head on over to my woodworking blog . In the meantime… on with the show! I didn’t want to use a table saw to cut these grooves, so I had to make a sticking board I got a little overzealous with the plow plane, slipped, and cut m...

Armoire #1: Building an Armoire

06-22-2011 03:59 AM by ziller | 13 comments »

I skipped a few steps up to this point. Basically I built 3 cabinets and screwed them together and here I’ve clamped on the face frame. Can’t have too many clamps…. After the frames were dry I glued a plywood finished end on each side and attached the raised panel columns to the face frame. Built a plywood top to match the profile of the cabinet and wraped it with an applied molding. Then add a structure that will support the arched middle section that I...

I am in Fine Woodworking Magazine

07-27-2010 02:07 AM by Brian Havens | 9 comments »

Last year, on a whim, I submitted a few my pieces to Fine Woodworking Magazine for a new feature with Hank Gilpin. I just received my complimentary issue of FWW #214 (October 2010), and yep, that’s me getting my Jewelry Armoire design ripped to shreds on page 64. :-)) Yeah, sure, it is never much fun getting your work critically critiqued, but if you can swallow that medicine, then you have a fantastic opportunity to improve. In fact, one of the reasons I took on the Jewelry Armoi...
