Cherry Amoire #3: Putting it all together

71 days ago by swandog | 5 comments »

Fitting drawers is not for the faint of heart. It’s at this point in the project you wish you would’ve spent more time making sure everything was square. I went with metal full pull out slides..or I guess they are 18” slides and the carcass depth is 21” or so.The upper doors are your basic mortise and tenon joinery…the tenon is a haunch tenon. The hardest part about the doors is getting the hinge mortise done correctly…that is why the one door on the lef...

Cherry Amoire #2: Building the drawers

71 days ago by swandog | 0 comments »

I had read a lot about the best way to build drawers. I was going back and forth on do I make them out of plywood or solid wood. In the end I didn’t want to have to glue up sides etc so I went with baltic birch plywood. I chose to do dovetails on them and that was a challenge….The tearout was almost unavoidable…I have a PC 2012 dovetail jig and I needed a way to have a backboard that would help prevent the tearout…I ended up using a piece of pine with two small refe...

Cherry Amoire #1: Getting past the design

71 days ago by swandog | 0 comments »

I had been thinking about building some sort of cabinet for the office for awhile. It needed to be functional and most importantly my wife had to approve. :) There are alot of good examples out there but I never found one that I really liked. I love the Dr. White chest but I needed more drawers. My office is kind of a dumping ground of pictures,computer parts and paperwork…I needed something that would organize and hide all that.Here is a drawing that I started with. I knew the gen...

Cherry Refreshment Table #1: Breadboard Ends and Tusk Tenons

73 days ago by pintodeluxe | 10 comments »

Here is my cherry refreshment table which will feature a single drawer and breadboard ends.-----I started by making breadboard mortises at the router table. The mortises are 1-1/4” deep and cut in multiple shallow passes. -----I used a 1/4” spiral bit to center a 3/8” groove in the breadboard ends. I made an initial pass in the standard right to left direction. Then I flipped the board end for end and made a pass from left to right to avoid a climb cut.-----I set up my t...

Cherry sideboard #2: She's got legs, and she...

76 days ago by SFDCapt | 0 comments »

Alright, the legs were glued up in part one. Since then I milled them to final dimensions by jointing on two sides, then running them through the table saw just oversized. The legs were then ran through the planer to get the final size I was looking for. Using the table saw to get the bulk of the waste off reduced the amount of shavings from the planer that had to go through the dust collector. The next step was to create the lower side stretchers. The rough lumber was milled 1 ¾”...

Somewhere to throw the stupid pillows #1: A design is made

81 days ago by sylinen | 1 comment »

The present dictates of fashion require that every bed these days be covered in a multitude of pillows; God forbid there not be sufficient padding for one to lie their head upon. However, we men are simple creatures. One pillow, or two at the most, does it for us. This of course presents a quandary: where do we put all the stupid little throw pillows that get in the way of the useful pillows? The good people of Pottery Barn of Ethan Allen would have you buy a $600 blanket chest to stash these...

Bathroom Vanity Commision #2: Side assemblies, tapers, and curves

83 days ago by emetric | 2 comments »

After milling the leg blanks, I moved on to tapering the bottoms of the legs. I decided to only double taper the front legs only because the rear legs are only visible from the sides. After tapering the legs, I decided to assemble the side panels as sub-assemblies. I made curved templates for the curve detail on the bottom of the side panels so that both sides would be identical. I double stick taped the templates to the side parts and used a flush trim bit on my router table to ens...

Sheraton Writing Desk - Installing Cock Beading on the Rails

85 days ago by Guy Dunlap | 0 comments »

In this video. I mill and installing cock bead on the bottom of the rails. It’s a fairly simple process to make this detail, and it adds a nice visual element to the bottom of the rails. The next video will show how I fit the drawers and apply the cock bead to them also. It was quite a challenge! http://youtu.be/I2tpRk6YxMc
