This is a build blog of my efforts to build a cherry Trestle table. For a detailed summary, see Marc’s site, the Wood Whisperer, Trestle Table series Marc’s is Honduran Mahogany, I’m going with cherry as I wasn’t quite that confident given the $$’s concerned. Anyway, pretty much following Marc’s process and here’s where we are as of today; Templates made; All the milling and initial blank making was done last weekend so here’s...

new ideas #5: finally

04-03-2011 11:18 PM by JoeyG | 1 comment »

Well I finally made enough progress on the bedroom and half bath remodel that I have had a chance to sneak off into my shop to start a couple projects and make a little saw dust. I started 2 of the 5 eye glass boxes and while doing so I have begun to narrow down the design on the laptop trays I have in mind. I have a couple of pics here of the beginnings of the boxes This one is for my son. It is just the glue up for the top. It is walnut and blood wood This one is for my wife....

Finishing Tips #1: Blotch Control (Homemade) Water Base Pre-Stain Conditioner

03-24-2011 07:45 AM by pjones46 | 44 comments »

I have been working on a project in Cherry and before I finished the desks I decided to try out some of the General Finishes Dye stain but on the scrap test pieces the blotching was driving me nuts. I came to this site and tried all the suggestions until I came across the discussion proclaiming that Charles Neil’s pre stain conditioner was the way to go. Bought some, tried it and still had minor blotching but it works well. Watching his video he said it was a water based PVA enhanced produ...

Shaker Cherry Nightstand - Handtool heavy #9: Step #9: Final assembly-stop, guide, and button

03-22-2011 03:07 PM by Bertha | 19 comments »

Time for final assembly. My fiance’ will turn a knob and install it as a celebration when the project is complete. First, I need to mount the free lower drawer supports over a spacer. I made the drawer supports so I could control the levelness of the drawer and the reveal once all the parts were together. First I cut the spacer oversized & will trim it later: Tack it in place with glue & brads (a consequence of waiting to the end for a final fit means I have to resort to ...

Cherry Writing Table #1: Design - Sketchup

03-20-2011 10:09 PM by PLB | 2 comments »

We needed another table for one of the kids to do school work. During a search of, I found an article by Christian Becksvoort that was published in the March/April 1990 issue. The table in the article was too large for the space, so it was off to Sketchup to scale the basic design down.The drawer is not shown because I haven’t figured out how to animate it in Sketchup, any suggestions are appreciated.We went to J.H. Monteath Lumber Company yesterday and bought the ...

Coffee Table #1: The Design, The Client, The Price.

03-08-2011 12:07 AM by pashley | 4 comments »

So the mother-in-law needs a new coffee table! Well, really, she does; the old one is falling apart. So her favorite son-in-law is stepping up to the plate. Requirements: Simple, beautiful, lower shelf. Here’s what I came up with: It’s looking like the materials will be about $150…and I’m thinking $100 for labor. Cheap, I know, but it’s the in-laws, what can you do? LOL. The dark wood you see on the top and feet are ebony inlays. The top i...

Project 365 #4: days 63 & 64, camera phones eye view

03-06-2011 05:13 AM by scottb | 2 comments »

Pardon the sometimes slightly out of focus glimpse of these little, teeny tiny bowls coming to life. It probably has more to do with the coating of dust on my face shield than all them mega pixels crammed into my pocket. (Which out snaps my first TWO digital cameras.).. Anywho, our fellow lumberjock Karson sent me a lovely box-o-wood, and asked if I’d turn out a couple of cousins of this little beauty: We’d both figured these would come up as projects in my “next&#...

Shaker Cherry Nightstand - Handtool heavy #1: Entry One: Starting off

03-03-2011 06:59 PM by Bertha | 14 comments »

I’m new to the blog series, so I’m afraid some of this will be redundant: I want to build a Shaker-style cherry nightstand for my fiance’. It’s going to be as handtool-heavy as it can be until my shoulder gives out. She’d like it to be 21”W x 19”D x 22”H. I’m going to construct it entirely from 1” rough cherry stock that was given to me (free!) by a friend. I’m using the “design as I go” approach & will size ...

Shop Improvements #2: Not the Studley Tool Cabinet, But Close Enough

02-28-2011 03:33 PM by pastorglen | 9 comments »

After taking some good advice from several of you on LJ, I finally started moving tools into my tool cabinet. I began my tapping off a section of my work bench the same size as my tool cabinet. Then I put all of my tools “in the box.” I even had my kids help arrange them. When all was said and done, I came out with this arrangement. I’ll have some more pictures of the doors, which have my chisels. (You can see three of the backsaws I’ve made recently, too.) It...
