Asian Inspired Side Table #1: The design

09-20-2008 04:41 AM by bfd | 15 comments »

Here is the second project that I am working on. Again another custom piece for a client down in LA. Taking design cues from existing furniture in some photos he sent me I came up with this design. The legs will have a slight curve as well as the stretchers. Through mortise and tenons that will be pinned with Ebony. The table will be built out of a slab of figured bubinga that I picked up. The slab is 8/4×16 x 68 and it is as heavy as it is beautiful. Here are shots from both...

Greene and Greene Bookcase Challenge04

04-19-2008 03:23 PM by Karson | 14 comments »

Posted as a blog entry, for the official contest. For the Challenge04 I decided to design a Greene and Greene Bookcase. The Greene brothers, Charles and Henry decided to create a new and fresh style different from the Arts and Craft designs that was becoming popular in that time. Some of their designs were influenced by some Asian furniture. I opted then to build a Greene and Greene Style bookcase using breadboards and splines for the top but also creating a mid rail in the middl...

I’ve completed the table based on a design that I blogged about in a previous post. I talk about the construction and design details in a new post on my blog. There are some pictures of the detail there as well. Take a look and let me know what you think. Thanks!

Asian Cabinet #3: Two... Three Birds, one Stone

10-16-2010 09:33 PM by Brian Havens | 7 comments »

Turned out that the jig I used to cut the mortise faces on the leg solved a more general problem, which allowed me to use the same jig for several other tasks.

Interpreting Design #3: Asian Jewelry Box

05-19-2009 07:54 AM by DocT | 6 comments »

Here is my second completed interpretation of our jewelry box project. To restate the challenge, I am trying to stay somewhat true to the original subject while exploring various design aesthetics. I was brainstorming some genres of design, and “Asian” came to mind. I couldn’t tell you the first thing about Asian design. Maybe that is for the best. My interpretation is purely off the cuff. I immediately got an image of a pagoda and couldn’t shake it. I was intrigued by the challenge of...

Asian Inspired Sofa Table #1: Design...

10-25-2009 10:27 AM by azwoodman | 5 comments »

My wife and I need a little hall/sofa table and I want to build something so here we go… Here’s a SketchUp picture of what I have come up with so far… I am thinking solid wood for the legs and aprons then two sheets of 3/4 ply glued together with some solid wood edge banding for the top and lower shelf… (Wood choices might be: all walnut, all mahogany, or maybe wenge legs with a contrasting species for the rest of the piece.) The edges of the top and and o...

Jewelry Cabinet #4: Final pieces, assembly and finish.

04-13-2012 04:06 AM by Devin | 4 comments »

Well, about 330 days ago I wrote something about being finished this piece in another 4 weeks. That didn’t happen, but in my defence I did get other pieces done in that time, I just kept getting pulled away from this jewelry cabinet. The work left on this piece was not big, but very finicky and detailed, which is likely why I kept finding it hard to get traction. I made the three drawers for the bottom section before moving onto the more intricate boxes that sit on the cabinet. ...

Asian Cabinet #2: Where there's a Jig, There's a Way

10-13-2010 09:03 PM by Brian Havens | 4 comments »

The first task I decided to tackle is the cabinet legs. If I cannot get the legs right, all bets are off. They look deceivingly simple in the design picture, but having the cabinet float above the legs, as well as my attempt to make the legs from 8/4 stock complicates things a bit. Nothing that a jig cannot solve, right?
