Minor Wood Score

09-13-2014 05:40 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

A friend of mine offered me an old dresser that they were throwing out, so I headed on down to fetch it. The dresser was old, but not handmade. The drawer fronts were curved and therefore no use to me. I saved the knobs though. Disassembling it I noticed a few oddities in its construction. The side panels, which are typically made of plywood are actually very thin boards. They are also flexible and somewhat delicate. The top might be one solid piece of wood, but with breadboard ends and a...

Jewelry Armoire / Lingerie Chest #5: Highlights (part 4)

07-18-2014 03:04 AM by Steve Erwin | 3 comments »

Sorry for the delay. It’s been a busy week. For all the details, head on over to my woodworking blog . In the meantime‚Ķ here’s the next set of progress images… I finish assembling the drawers and fitting them to their bays. Not piston-fit, but as close as I’ve ever come. I can’t stress how important it is to take your time at this step. Take super light passes off the sides of the drawers and keep retesting the fit to the point of insanity. As so...

Welcome back to one woodworker’s flirtation with insanity by way of making a Jewelry Armoire for my wife. I’m happy to say that I and all of my new personalities are really glad to be done with this project. For all the details, head on over to my woodworking blog . In the meantime… on with the show! I didn’t want to use a table saw to cut these grooves, so I had to make a sticking board I got a little overzealous with the plow plane, slipped, and cut m...

Jewelry Armoire / Lingerie Chest #1: Introduction

07-08-2014 07:29 PM by Steve Erwin | 1 comment »

Hi everybody, I’ve been attempting to record as much of the process of designing and building a Jewelry Armoire / Lingerie Chest of drawers as I can manage. The effort to document the work on my personal site is already substantial, so I wasn’t able to duplicate the blog posts over here. I started this project on 11/1/2013 and am 2 days from completing it. I’ve lived with this project in my brain for so long now that I have mixed feelings about being done with it. It&...

Building a Houseful of Furniture #4: Guest Bedroom

04-13-2013 11:42 PM by DustyMark | 2 comments »

Watch this video to take a quick tour of the furniture I’ve made for our guest bedroom. There are only two major pieces in this bedroom; a dresser and a bed. This is a Norm Abrams design dresser. The primary wood is cherry and the secondary wood is poplar. The drawers are dovetailed and also have solid wood drawer guides attached to the bottom. I made this before I owned a lathe, so the knobs are an ugly mushroom style that I purchased. Notice the through dovetails on the ba...
