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...

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...

Mongo: my first real workbench #3: A look at joinery

03-30-2017 04:41 PM by TheRiflesSpiral | 7 comments »

As I mentioned before I’m planning to assemble Mongo without fasteners. I’m not exactly schooled in the fine art of joinery but I do watch a fair number of YouTube videos and I’ve been following Chris Hall's excellent work for some time. I appreciate his unique blend of traditional joinery design and modern manufacturing methods. With the top completely laminated and glued to the tool tray, my first bit of joinery will be the ribs that support the top from underneath. The...
