Cherry platform bed #3: Progressing nicely.

1289 days ago by TheBarrister | 1 comment »

Leg glue up. Yes, those are some nice burns on the wood. Lumber cut to size. My first mortise and tenon. Ever. Headboard minus panels, dry fit. Tuning the slot for a panel. Drilling (Forstnering?) another mortise. This is my method for inserting the nut for the bed bolt. I got the idea from a magazine, but this method set me back some hours. I would probably just use a barrel nut next time. Still, it looks pretty good. Today, my orbital sa...

It's Beginning to look at lot like Christmas #2: Box Drawers Begin to Take Shape

1080 days ago by Kerry Drake | 1 comment »

I got the snowman carcass and drawers all separated and the drawers cut up and formed back together. I also got the first round of sanding done on the snowman’s body. Predictably, I am planning to paint this white (with a black hat, black buttons and and orange nose). Next up is some sanding on the drawers, and cutting up a 1/4” dowel to make the 3 “buttons” to go down the front (2 of the buttons will be drawer pulls for the 2 bottom drawers).

Birthday Baby Doll Bed #1: Before it's to Late!

537 days ago by JohnnySplinterfinger | 1 comment »

So, since I have been watching Steve Ramsey, Matthias Wandel, and various other YouTube woodworkers for the last few years while tinkering about with what I would call mini-projects, I figured I’d try out the whole public showing of a project from beginning to end. Today starts with a mock-up of Ana White’s – Doll Bunk Beds for American Girl Doll and 18” Doll. Within this last week I’ve only just begun working with Sketchup as a means of doing a rough out of w...

THE BLANKET CHEST PERSUASION

270 days ago by TDog | 1 comment »

QUESTION: HOW VERSATILE IS A LARGE BLANKET CHEST OR BOX? 15 Century Chest above My opinion…EXTREMELY! Antique Pennsylvania Chest above Here are my thoughts on the simple, large, well built CHEST, dovetailed nicely or fastened with glue and screws. By the way, the items shown here I would not dare call “simple” as the craftsmen have certainly taken time and care and worked hard and meticulously for which I have much respect. 1. The Toy Box2. The Family Blanket ...

MODIFICATIONS ON ROUTER PANTOGRAPH

1094 days ago by EMVarona | 1 comment »

1. Used two metal parallel arms of the same length. This makes possible a wider range of size variations since the router tray can be moved along a longer distance in relation to the template. Furthermore, lifting the router is easier when moving the stylus to a new position.http://www.flickr.com/photos/edurink/5935802701/ The earlier version of this router pantograph is found here: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/50802 2. One problem noted in the original set up is the tendency for th...

Exploring the Cherry Pedestal Design

1957 days ago by David | 1 comment »

Exploring Design Considerations This was an interesting project to build despite its small size. This was a small commission piece to display a bronze of General Ulysses S. Grant for a Civil War aficionado. As a woodworker, the most interesting aspect was to witness the evolution of the design from an initial sketch that arrived via FAX to the final full size construction drawings that made it out to the shop. More photos in my final project posting. David The Folding Rule Blog
