100 year old Craftsman Desk Find

02-09-2015 01:37 AM by KayBee | 5 comments »

My mom runs a thrift store in the senior housing place she lives. She’s always calling me with ‘great finds.’ This time it turned out to be one. An old roll top craftsman that she thought I’d like it for the wood. My oldest always wanted a roll top, she grabbed her boyfriend and told me to meet them there. That’s why no assembled pictures, they were already loading the thing up. Anyway, started cleaning up the grime and found this on the bottom of one of th...

Morris Chair #6: A call to arms.

02-06-2015 05:26 AM by Luddite | 3 comments »

4 Feb 2015 Thanks to comments and such I finally decided on my approach for making the chair arms. I’d originally had planned on the Stickley method of laminate and cut so as to keep the arm looking bent. Well seems I hit a wall here as my band saw is not up to the job and I was certainly handsaw impaired to make such a cut.I’d floated the idea of a cut and spline method and got some great feedback, thank lcwood. I plan on cutting the board for the arm twice. First an a...

Harvey Ellis Nightstand #1: Intro

02-02-2015 03:32 PM by DBrown52 | 6 comments »

My wife and I will soon start building our dream home in the country. When it’s completed, we’ll be absent both quality furniture to fill it and spare cash to buy any. It’s quite the dilemma. Fortunately, she likes the Stickley/Craftsman style and I have a nice stack of cherry. The plan is for me to build a bedroom set to replace our current collection of hand-me-downs and discount pieces from the meatball place. We did some looking and both agreed that we liked the H...

For Drew

I recently completed this for a family whose son passed away from cancer last year at 4 years old. He loved trains and I found this image through a Google search. The picture was one of my favorites of him and a train. The lower right side is a copy of his first time writing his name.I was privileged to be asked to attempt this project. The finished size is like 16 by 20 from basswood. I applied Ipswich Pine stain and about 4 coats of gloss lacquer. I was inspired and informed by the ...

01-30-2015 09:03 PM by Bill Schonfelder | 5 comments »

Setting up a workshop on a budget. I have been working in wood since my early twenties. Owned and operated a five man custom cabinet shop, setup a toy company, and just made gifts for Christmas presents over those years. Some of my shops have been operated in small as a space as 8’x12’ in a space on a warehouse floor, to an industrial size of 3,000 sq ft in a private owned building with a storefront.Enough about that, my latest shop is setup not too mass produce or create a company but j...
