Press Release From North Pole

1237 days ago by Chris Davis | 8 comments »

NORTH POLE – Due to the increasing population of the world and the “Cash for Toys Program”, it has been reported that Santa Claus (AKA Kris Kringle) cannot keep up with the many furniture wishes he has received this year. In his yearly press conference, Santa tells reporters that many factors have contributed to the problem. The popularity of a baseball bed, Murphy beds, and a Princess Castle Loft have made his schedule very demanding. Also complicating matters, many of h...

Oak Boat Bed #4: Applying the Veneer

778 days ago by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

Unlike my normal boat bed, this one will not be painted. It will be built in oak. Using oak on most of the project is, for the most part, straight forward. Not much different the using the maple and MDF on the painted version, until we come to the Bow of the Boat (AKA the toy box). Since we have a curved bow, a veneer must be used over the bending plywood. In prepping, I make sure all my staples are driven. I also fill all staple holes and imperfections with Bondo. This will keep tho...

About my finishes

1247 days ago by Chris Davis | 10 comments »

People often ask me about my finishes and I am always wondering about how others do their finish too. I feel the finish is the key to any furniture. A bad finish can destroy the look and the value of a piece. I thought I’d share what I do and what material and equipment I use. As in equipment, I use an air assisted airless. It takes the best of both worlds. Low air volume but without using too high of pressure as in the airless rigs. It works like an airless, which I used for ...

A whale of a time (Marquetry) #1: The Plan

1084 days ago by Chris Davis | 3 comments »

I’m starting a very exciting project. Anything new that I try is exciting for me. I love new things and new techniques. I build a lot of murphy beds, as you can see from my post, but when I got customer wanting to add a whale design to one, I was all in. I don’t consider myself an artist or my work art, so this would be my first attempt at something like that. I’ve heard and read a little on marquetry and decided this would be the direction I’d take the customer....

A whale of a time (Marquetry) #2: The Layout

1083 days ago by Chris Davis | 1 comment »

Okay, I got approval form the customer and time to get started on the project. To pattern it I enlisted the services from a local sign company. They printed it up with the colors separated life size (life size to the bed not life size in the wild). They made me some mask to use as the pattern. Here is also the wood I choose to use. They are Quarter Sawn Walnut (dark color) and Lacewood (reddish color): These were masks so I was able to stick them to the veneer pieces. I cut them out...
