Making a Desk #1: Milling and Joinery

02-20-2018 10:24 PM by Jerome | 3 comments »

This is a blog of a desk that I am in the process of making. I have never made a desk, and the closest price of furniture that I made was my built-in cabinets for my living room. That’s was made of whatever quality materials that I could find and I learned a lot. Basically my table saw, miter saw were the only tools that I used. This one is different. It is all solid Cherry with the exception of the drawer bottoms and cabinet sides. This one is a particularly significant because it ...

Mission-style mahogany desk #1: A view of the legs and progress on the desktop

11-17-2017 07:56 PM by Woodbutchery | 0 comments »

I talked about this project in my recent blog, and thought I’d give a shot at actually trying to blog a build; something that I’m not strong at because I don’t always think to take pictures of things while I’m doing the work, and the pictures REALLY help visualize whatever’s gong on in the shop. As always, comments, suggestions, or witty reparte’ are always welcome. Below is a snapshot of my ongoing sketchup-work-in-progress plans for the mission-style d...

Charles Mackintosh Inspired Computer Desk #8: Finishing up the Odds and Ends

10-21-2017 01:19 PM by EarlS | 4 comments »

Even with all of the “woodworking” complete there were still a fair number of things that needed to be finished. Generally, I keep a “To Do” list throughout the project to keep track of what needs to be done and in what order. At the end of the project, I start a new list for “Finishing”. Obviously, it includes the sanding, staining, finish, and wax. But the list also includes other things that need to be completed for the project to be “finished&...

Charles Mackintosh Inspired Computer Desk #7: Topping things off

10-07-2017 01:16 PM by EarlS | 4 comments »

I saved the best for last, or certainly the most challenging part of the project, the desk top. This is a close up of the top profile at the leg from Kevin Rodel’s desk. At first glance it doesn’t seem that difficult, cut some panels and glue them together, then cut a profile on the edge. I came up with a combination of steps using the table saw to cut the 45 deg bevel and then remove the remaining material with a 1/2 router bit. Unfortunately, wouldn’t work on tap...

Charles Mackintosh Inspired Computer Desk #6: Drawers

10-07-2017 12:12 PM by EarlS | 1 comment »

Seems like there is always something that needs to be taken care of during the time I could be working on my wood working projects. I have to say I’m jealous of some of the other LJ’s and how quickly they can move through a project. Still, I have managed to finish the construction phase of the desk. The drawers are standard dovetail construction with a 1/4” walnut bottom slid into a slot 1/4” off the bottom edge of the drawer. Here’s my version of a dovetai...

Charles Mackintosh Inspired Computer Desk #5: Just a little off the top

09-16-2017 02:06 PM by EarlS | 2 comments »

The legs on the desk are one of the unique features that set it apart from just another desk. Each leg is has an inside and an outside piece. They are spaced 2” apart with the grids providing the spacing for the top, and a 2”x3” spacer for the lower portion. After the mortises were cut into the legs and the leg sections were dry fit together in the last post, the edge details for the legs needed to be finalized. The outside piece is rounded over from the front to t...

Charles Mackintosh Inspired Computer Desk #4: Time for some Leg Work

09-02-2017 02:46 PM by EarlS | 3 comments »

I’m on a roll this morning. Things are quiet around the house and I haven’t gotten distracted so it looks like I will get 2 installments of the project progress written up. There are a number of mortises that will be required for the legs. Initially, I was considering using a plunge router with a template jig that slid over the legs but decided that approach would be too tedious. I also wanted to figure out a suitable approach to using the router table to make mortise cuts. ...
