Evolution of Walnut & Pine television stand #1: Beginning the slabbing process

04-13-2012 12:35 AM by TZH | 7 comments »

Because our daughter’s tv stand/entertainment center was such a hit with her and just about everyone else who’s seen it we thought it might be time to do one for us, too. I do these things really, really slow because I’m old, don’t ya know. So step one was working up the energy to actually photograph the walnut log prior to marking it for slabbing: Can’t really see the lines I scribed on the log using a laser line to guide the cut, but they’re there ...

Mission Style Bed #3: Head and Footboard Assembly

04-11-2012 11:50 PM by Fraser Gandy | 2 comments »

Alright, did a lot of work the past while, even though it seems like I haven’t. I’ve been busy working!I started with the footboard, I first lined all the slats up in between the rails. This was probably one of the most frustrating parts of this whole project. Once I got them all pretty well in there, I attached the rails to the legs and that sorted out the slats for the most part. Once I did that, I noticed that my mortises and slats and stuff didn’t quite look as nice a...

Intarsia Basics #2: Preparing Your Wood and Pattern for Cutting

04-11-2012 01:20 AM by KoryK | 18 comments »

Intro: Hello to all and welcome to the first installment of Intarsia Basics. Before we can start cutting we need to select the wood we want to use and get our pattern ready. Wood Choices: I prefer to start with stock that is one inch thick because that gives you a lot of depth that you can work with. It will require a little more sanding on some areas but it will help to give your piece a 3D look. It is your choice if you prefer to stain your wood to achieve the colors or use exot...

Catch up photos

04-08-2012 12:06 AM by T. D. Reid | 5 comments »

I promised you photographs to catch you up on my current build. First one is my 8 year old son on his first camping trip with dad. We had a break in the rain so he and I wanted to get the kayak and canoe in the water and figured that we would spend the night. We froze when the tempature dipped to below 32 degrees last night and we were trying out a new two man tent. It was fun and he thought it was the greatest thing ever. Top rail that sits on top of the head and foot boards.4/4 Quart...

I'm still here

04-06-2012 01:25 AM by T. D. Reid | 3 comments »

I haven’t fallen of the face of the earth but I am behind on the Queen Size bed build. It has become a money pit because of a 5/8” mortising bit that I didn’t own. Then I realized that the throat on the mortising machine is on 6” and the bottom rail is 8” so I ordered a 5/8” mortising chisel. While waiting for it to get here I dry fit the head board and low and behold a queen size bed is more than 6’ wide and by the way that was the longest length of pipe clamp that I owned. So then I shell o...
