Arts and Crafts 6 Drawer Dresser #1: Legs and Side Panel Glueups

12-11-2012 06:30 PM by pintodeluxe | 4 comments »

I started the dresser like I start most of my projects, by laminating up some legs. I am making two dressers, so 8 legs were in order. I cut strips of 3/4” quartersawn red oak, and resawed a few of them. I could then glue 3 pieces together to get my leg width. Finally, I glued on 1/4” thick stock to cover my jointlines. After the glue dries, I plane the thickness of these veneers to about 3/32”. That way, I get quartersawn grain on all 4 sides. I then milled s...

Arts and Crafts 6 Drawer Dresser #9: Dovetail Drawers , Spraying Shellac

01-22-2013 06:03 AM by pintodeluxe | 2 comments »

Here is my setup for cutting half blind dovetails. I use a larger-than-stock 14 degree dovetail bit. I think it makes nicer looking dovetail joints, and they feel much stronger. Here is a link to my blog about the special bit… http://lumberjocks.com/topics/40073-----This is the bit I use, which is a Rockler item. You can still cut these dovetails in one pass with the PC jig. -----I trimmed some aromatic cedar plywood to size and test fit the drawers.-----Grooves were cut for the dra...

daughter's bedroom piece #1: daughter's bedroom piece part one a new beginning

04-14-2012 08:35 PM by jacob34 | 2 comments »

So it is that time again in my workshop, PLANNING my favorite time full of potential and lacking in the reality of things like dull saw blades, bad cuts or mess ups. I also so am at a sand still with regards to my shop as it is going to rain and with a small shop the table saw ends up outside so a couple one stop shop projects this weekend and then start the next project. I just finished the turtle stool and enjoyed it but it was not something new, so the next project is going to be a piec...

Boys Bedroom (cape cod) #1: Where I am so far

03-11-2014 02:58 AM by Questtut | 1 comment »

So, it is time for my boys to get their own room. They are getting too big for their cribs, and I need to finish that spare bedroom for them so they can have their own space. We have a small cape cod home, originally 4 bedrooms when we moved in, but we made it 3, creating a master bedroom downstairs by combining the 2 smaller rooms. Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms, shaped like a plus symbol, and a small half bath (currently unusable as well). The bath will be a project for another day...

X-Men Bunk Bed #6: Building the Stairs and Installation

06-16-2012 03:31 PM by Patrick Jaromin | 6 comments »

Building the stairs With the main bunk bed complete, it was time to turn my attention to the stairs. For safety reasons, mom insisted the bunk bed have stairs instead of a ladder. The original design featured drawers on the end and paneled sides. Upon further reflection (and measuring) it was clear that this placement wouldn’t work – there simply wouldn’t be enough room to access them. Many commercial beds feature drawers under each step, so I figured this could work here...

X-Men Bunk Bed #4: Test Assembly and Finishing the Ends

05-17-2012 12:04 PM by Patrick Jaromin | 0 comments »

Over the last couple weeks I’ve completed the construction of the side and end rails and cut the slats for supporting the mattresses. I also settled on somewhat novel connection hardware for the rails. Woodcraft sells a very inexpensive bed rail set bracket set that are nonetheless very sturdy and heavy duty. I’ve augmented the connection with a single 10×50mm domino in each rail for added security and support. I cut the slots to exact width in both the rail and the post, so ...

X-Men Bunk Bed #5: The Back "X" and Top Bunk Safety Rails

06-03-2012 02:34 PM by Patrick Jaromin | 2 comments »

In the last few weeks since my latest post, I’ve made significant progress on the bed. I applied the finish to the poplar parts and glued up the head and foot ends of the bed. At this point I was able to test-assemble the bed and give the kids a chance to take it for a test…er…rest? The boys give it a test run Back “X” The “X” across the back of the piece is very similar to the “X” logos in the ends, minus the top and bottom arcs....

Boy's Cherry and Walnut Dresser #8: Dresser Finds a Home

10-06-2008 06:39 PM by Patrick Jaromin | 1 comment »

I completed the baby’s room over the weekend and “installed” the dresser last night. Since this is more a remodeling project, I’ve posted the project page over at HomeRefurbers.com. While I designed this piece to last a lifetime, and not to compliment the room design, I think it looks reasonably “at home” in it’s new digs! More details at my personal blog: http://tenonandspline.com/blog/archives/155

A break from the normal murphy bed and switching gears to a twin four poster bed. I’m posting out of order, but here is the video of the post glue up. Video streaming by UstreamThe post will be 2 1/2” x 2 1/2” with a small chamfer on the edges to make an octagon look. I’m going to stop the chamfer on the inside where the post attach. This will allow my bracket room to mount. For more building pictures see my Current Projects link at wwbeds.com o...
