Cutting Board / Knife Block #1: First Post and a Quick Recap

05-07-2012 03:54 PM by Chris | 4 comments »

Well I finally got around to setting up an account on Lumber Jocks and figured I’d kick things off with a quick note about my current project. First, a little bit of a back story… A good buddy of mine moved out to LA a few months back and quickly found that abundant counter space comes at a premium. Being that I’m such a nice guy (and never sent a housewarming present…) I figured I’d try to throw something together for him. What I came up with was a combinati...

Greene and Greene Curio Cabinet #3: Making some sawdust (actually, lots)

05-04-2012 03:44 AM by DynaBlue | 2 comments »

So I went and bought my cherry, regretfully understanding that much of it will go to waste. I laid out my parts on the rough lumber and cut it out using my jigsaw then forming the parts in the standard fashion. Lots of wasted cherry..sigh. Why waste? Because I need to keep to the rift/quartersawn areas of the boards and have to sacrifice the cathedrals. Many of my pieces will be very long and narrow, some very thin and narrow..none of that lends itself to a board with questionable dimens...

Greene and Greene Curio Cabinet #2: Planning for cloud lifts

05-03-2012 11:05 PM by DynaBlue | 2 comments »

The Greene and Greene cloud lift is a detail that really stands out on this cabinet and makes it different than many of the other Arts & Crafts cases that I’ve seen. They really add a nice dimension to the cabinet and make it a stand out piece of furniture. That said, they are not the easiest things in the world to create so here is how I went about making them. You probably noticed in the picture that all the cloud lifts line up around the cabinet and misalignment will rea...

Greene and Greene Curio Cabinet #1: The concept and initial work

05-03-2012 06:22 PM by DynaBlue | 4 comments »

A good friend of mine is getting married and part of the announcement included the locations they were gift registered at. I called him up and told him that I was happy for him but I wasn’t going to shop at some store for a gift and he should expect something I made for him. He had commissioned me to build him a cherry Morris chair and Ottoman in the past so I made some suggestions (coffee table, side table, headboard, etc) that would match his furniture. He thought about it for a bi...

Hope Chest Build #2: Hand raised panel-first one

05-01-2012 06:30 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 7 comments »

Well I started this blog section to keep track of how things were going. They went from good to ok to bad. When putting it all together it seemed like nothing was fitting up to square. I started using only hand tools and have started making some decent progress. I have the back panel all glued up, the front frame is ready for final assembly and the sides stiles and rails are all set for the panels. Today I got out to the shop and did some work on them. This is my first raised panel (machine o...

Today participated in the regional Skills competition in calgary.It was for grades 10-12, I am in grade 10. After 6 hours of work, my box was complete. I brought some beeswax to make my box stand out from the others. The techniques the box required were hand-cut dovetails, rabbet joints, tapers, dados and other regular practices. The box sides are yellow poplar, the ends are cherry and the top and bottom are cherry plywood. I came in bronze (third) and was very happy because this was my fi...

Making a valet #1: Cutting the mortises

04-19-2012 12:00 AM by Chelios | 3 comments »

So I am out walking the mall and I like to go in the furniture stores and check out the different styles. I came across a valet. I had never seen one before but the purpose was cool and the piece seems real easy. If you have never seen one they are all over google images. As I do this build I thought I would doment it in a series since I plan on using nothing but hand tools- thanks for looking
