A Look at a Mini Kanna

05-04-2017 03:19 AM by Lemongrasspicker | 0 comments »

I have very few tools. In keeping with my living space but also in keeping with my belief that skills should surpass the tools that are used. In my mind it makes more sense to be able to make your own tools. So I was attracted to the Japanese thoughts of minimalism in both their tools and their methods. A mini kanna was something I’ve wanted for quite a while. it’s difficult to find one that is high quality new in the US (online or otherwise), but I found a maker (in Japan) tha...

• Lynnsay's Prie Dieu #12: Three in One

04-26-2017 03:33 PM by Ron Aylor | 6 comments »

Three in One –  With frame construction completed, the desk dovetailed together, and the sticking completed for the fitted top and lid, it was time to venture into the interior of the desk. I decided to use Honduran mahogany for the bottom, shelf, dividers, and drawer fonts. I thought this would make for a nice contrast against the gummy cherry. I started off by resawing a piece of mahogany into 3/8 and 1/4 inch thick pieces for the shelf and dividers.  I really should think about getti...

• Lynnsay's Prie Dieu #11: Edge Moulding

04-22-2017 11:01 PM by Ron Aylor | 6 comments »

Edge Moulding –  With the last of the dovetails cut, I loose fit the desk together and devote some time to edge moulding. It appears that the original desk on frame has a separate edge moulding running the perimeter of the top and lid. Therefore, I decided not to have breadboard edges on the top/lid like on the kneeling platform.   I will be using alder for this moulding and hope to fashion something akin to this.                          The moulding is a two-part construction, joined ...

• Lynnsay's Prie Dieu #10: Dovetails

04-15-2017 11:23 PM by Ron Aylor | 12 comments »

Dovetails - I think the boiled linseed oil and sunbathing has created a rather nice patina, thus far. How about you?  As the frame rests quietly in the sun, I start laying out the dovetails on the desk. I like to use a mirror to keep an eye on the backside of the board. This helps me keep things nice and square!  Pins first, tails first … whatever! I can do both, but I find it a bit easier to go with tails first. So, I line things up and scribe the location of the tails onto the pin boa...

• Lynnsay's Prie Dieu #9: Mitred Breadboards

04-13-2017 11:41 PM by Ron Aylor | 6 comments »

Mitred Breadboards - In order to run a bull-nose around the perimeter of the kneeling platform top, I thought it prudent to attach breadboards. Given that I do not want any end-grain showing, the breadboards need to be mitred. So … with my highly detailed drawing in hand …                    ... I get to work! The breadboards are simply 1 inch strips of 3/4 cherry with 1/4 inch x 5/16 inch grooves along one edge and a 45° mitred end. There are also mortises in the floor of the gro...

• Lynnsay's Prie Dieu #8: The Kneeling Platform

04-10-2017 12:36 PM by Ron Aylor | 7 comments »

The Kneeling Platform –  The kneeling platform was proving to be something of a challenge. Thus far, I have simply copied the look of the original desk on frame. In adding the kneeling platform, I did not want to stray too far from the William & Mary style. After a great deal of thought, I finally decided on the following.  The perimeter of the platform will have the same 3/4 inch half-round as the transition between the frame and desk. I decided to have the platform more narrow tha...

• Lynnsay's Prie Dieu #7: All the Single Pieces

04-04-2017 11:28 AM by Ron Aylor | 2 comments »

All the Single Pieces - Wuh uh oh uh uh oh … ♪ ♫ ♫ ♪  All the single pieces … ♫ ♪ ♪ ♫  ... all the single pieces … ♫ ♪ ♪ ♫  ... now that I’m done channeling my inner Beyonce, perhaps it’s time to get back to sticking the frame members and start some assembly! After considerable thought as to the design of the kneeling platform, I have completely changed the sticking profile on the frame members. I have decided on 1/16 x 7/16 inch rebates in from the corners, wi...

Installing Drawer Fronts

03-31-2017 12:14 AM by EarlS | 1 comment »

I’ve been building closet shelf organizers lately. I pre-built and finished all of the components before I started installation. This approach lends itself to an easier installation and a lot less heavy lifting. Once the basic cabinet is installed, insert the drawer boxes and start installing the fronts. All of my drawer boxes are 3/4” maple with through dovetails. I use 75# full extension ball bearing slides. The drawer box is 3/4” shorter than the opening betwe...

• Lynnsay's Prie Dieu #6: Slight Detour

03-25-2017 11:52 PM by Ron Aylor | 5 comments »

Slight Detour –  I decided to take a slight detour from sticking the frame members, as I’m still trying to work out the details of the kneeling platform. So, as the frame sits in the sun for a bit …  ... I get started on the transition pieces between the frame and desk. I have decided not to put a full top on the frame, but instead to fashion a picture frame  of sorts to secure the desk … something kind of like this …              I start off by ripping some 2-1/...
