Desk build #5: Nurses desk, finished

1813 days ago by Craftsman on the lake | 5 comments »

The desk is finally finished. My niece wants to stain and poly it herself so I’m done with it at this point. Back up to any of the other blogs for background info on this build. The second picture shows the drawer open and the keyboard tray extended after the front cover is pulled down. A magnetic latch holds it in a closed position. Next build: believe it or not, a pellet stove box to hold stove pellets, made to look like a couch end table. Hmm.

Bandsaw Inserts

1815 days ago by BigFoot Products Canada | 10 comments »

I was just wondering what the normal thickness is on most bandsaws for the insert around the blade. I have a KING and it’s wierd because it is 3/32nds? Are all bandsaws with the circular inserts 3/32nds?I don’t know why they ever designed these things with circular inserts anyhow. I’ve seen some machines with the square ones.. at least you can make replacements for those easily enough.Anyhow I was just wondering?

Gluing Veneer To Radius Box Parts, "Made Easy"

1815 days ago by Dennis Zongker | 31 comments »

Gluing veneer to hardwood can actually be a good thing. As long as the hardwood has the proper moisture content, which is between 6 to 8 percent. Also, the smaller the piece of hardwood the better. Wood only expands and contracts, the width of your board. Also I like to veneer both sides, to balance the hardwood. In the old days when furniture reached a zenith in Europe, between 1700-1900. Most of the highest quality pieces of furniture had veneer glued to the legs & aprons, which were...

CARPENTER ANT DAMAGE TO OUR GAZEBO SHED ROOF #1: Discovery of the Damage, Demolishing old roof, & Rebuilding

1817 days ago by Dick, & Barb Cain | 24 comments »

I opened the shed door the other day, & discovered water on the floor. I had just made a new shed door about a year ago. I thought the wind had blown water in from under the door. Then I noticed sawdust on the floor with drip marks coming from above. I looked up, & saw some funny looking white stuff coating the ceiling up in the corner above the door. The top plate of the wall studs also had piles of sawdust on it, & ants galore! Right away I knew I had some work c...

Desk build #4: Nurses Desk: framed, drawers, top glue-up

1818 days ago by Craftsman on the lake | 13 comments »

RecapMy niece will graduate as a nurse in the near future. She has moved into a new house and asked me for a small desk for her new flat panel iMac. I decided to make an oak desk that would be loosely based on the mission style but with side panels that would reflect her future as an RN. My goal is a small desk 48” x 29” with keyboard drawer and a small drawer. I’ll be trying my first hand made dovetails on scrap and then on to my first dovetailed drawer I put this out here, baring all for...

Black walnut pencil post bed

1820 days ago by RnG | 3 comments »

I’m in the middle of this project, using walnut that I helped my dad cut some 30 years ago and has been in a barn drying ever since. I’m making this full size bed for my one twin daughter, as she asked me to do it. This is really my first major furniture project ever and has been quit the learning experience. I’ll post pix ASAP. All pieces are cut and sanded, now I’m going to fill the pores with orange shellac and sanding and then do a French polish finish on the m...
