Several years ago I ran across an old book of Arts and Crafts style plans and copied the pages of the book containing the drawing (yes, just one drawing!) with dimensions and three paragraphs of instruction on how to build the desk. This past summer I finally purchased the rough quartersawn white oak and dimensioned it for the pieces of the project.

The table assembly is now complete. Since the leaves store in the table, the aprons needed to be hinged. I used short piano (continuous) hinges from hardware source.com. The hinges are 4.5” long, and lock at 90 degrees, similar to jewlery box hinges. I used inset rare earth magnets to lock the hinged aprons in there in-use positions. Felt lines the frame, which creates a nice little nest for the leaves. The table extends to accept two 12” leaves v...

Good day fellow dusty chippers,Short entry here – thought you’d like to see what I started with in the garage – the big mess… The picture is midstream in moving stuff around to find stuff to throw away and give away.

OK, may 1/3… seriously...
After my previous post here, I got numerous feedback and great ideas from professionals on this site on how to optimize the cutlist diagram to make it useful for professional wood workers. This lead me to develop “Carpenter Cut” app for iPad/iPhone devices. It goes like this: Start with a sheet of plywood (e.g. 48×96), tell it the dimensions and quantity of each part you want to cut from it. Specify the kerf (size for your saw blade (0.125 is the default)), and indicate gr...

Noticed a Wheatley Bear tile on eBay and sent Merridee a message that it matched her Elk tile piece.... She bought it and now I’m making her another frame to match. Today I reproduced the design.
