Arts and Crafts Dresser #2: Side panels and legs

01-13-2019 10:48 PM by BlueRidgeDog | 4 comments »

I milled up the stock for the legs and panels: Dry fit to test fit and get the final dimensions for the panel: Picked out some amazing grain wood for the panels, milled then book-matched two panels. I had planned on saving this wood for drawers, but I “think” I have enough: Trimmed the panels to width and test fit to mark the arch: Cut the mortises in the legs to take the cross stretcher: Glued up the panels and aggressively smoothed them. Cent...

Arts and Crafts Dresser #1: Design and Getting Started

01-07-2019 03:31 PM by BlueRidgeDog | 1 comment »

I am working on an entire bedroom suite for ME (finally time). The finished group: I have finished the bed and the night stands. The bed is a platform bed that is the height I am accustomed to and works for me and my memory foam mattress. I use a large dresser, being a folder vs a hanger so to speak. The one I am going to make is 65” wide, 19” deep and about 39” high. The size is a bit outside traditional for Arts and Crafts, but I have adjusted the flow of ...

Ellis-Mackintosh-Limbert mashup table #3: Glaze applied

11-23-2018 09:22 PM by kordwood | 4 comments »

Rubbing the walnut gel stain really fills the pores of the oak. I’ve found it’s important to wipe it off thoroughly —and quickly — in order to get good contrast. This piece is small, so I didn’t have to use mineral spirits to remove excess glaze. In 24 hours or so, it’ll be ready for the first of two coats of satin Waterlox.

Ellis-Mackintosh-Limbert mashup table #2: Branded. Then finishing begins.

11-21-2018 10:06 PM by kordwood | 2 comments »

The little plant stand/table project is moving along. This morning — at an ungodly hour before work — I gave it a final sanding with 180-grit, vacuumed the pores, branded it with my mark, and saturated the whole thing with TransTint dye. I was particularly happy with the two half-lap joints that hold the base together. I’ve only done a few, but these are by far the best. Can’t wait to see them totally finished. Next up: Waterlox sealer, General Finishes walnut glaze, and...

American flag bench #4: Torched the slats then sanded them down to 320 grit. Stained the red stripes

11-20-2018 07:38 PM by Dubbs | 0 comments »

So I torched the slats in an attempt to make it look more rustic. Sanded them down to 320 grit. I found the poplar sort of burns blotchy or I’m just not too good at it yet. Had Hoe Depot mix up some blue and red stain for me. ($32) Also picked up oil based spa urethane high gloss (expensive.. but I told worth it.)I was able to get the union marked and taped and stained the red stripes! I think it came out pretty good. Cant wait to lay out the star stickers for the union. to b...

Ellis-Mackintosh-Limbert mashup table #1: E-M-L in process

11-18-2018 03:29 PM by kordwood | 3 comments »

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but this little piece seems share-worthy. It’s an homage to three of my favorite Arts and Crafts pioneers: Harvey Ellis, Charles Limbert and Charles Rennie Mackintosh. They all bring a different aesthetic, but mashed up, the A&C commonality becomes clear. The Ellis influence: Most evident in the delicate edge of the top. The Mackintosh influences: The overall proportion and the inward angles of the legs. The Limbert influence: ...
