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

13 days ago 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… 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...

21 days ago by Steve Erwin | 3 comments »

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

22 days ago 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

473 days ago 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...

Arts and Crafts 6 Drawer Dresser #11: Waxing Dressers and adding Drawer Pulls

541 days ago by pintodeluxe | 8 comments »

I waxed the dressers with Howards Walnut wax and #0000 steel wool. I tested the difference between sanding with a 1500 grit sanding sponge, and waxing with steel wool – and I prefered the latter. I waxed with the grain, and let the wax dry. Then I buffed it off with a clean lint-free rag. ----- For drawer pull layout I used Scott Collins no-math layout method. My drawer pulls have 2 bolts, 3” on center. -----I made a full-height jig to drill the holes for the machine bo...

544 days ago by pintodeluxe | 12 comments »

With a stack of drawers ready to go, I turn my attention to applying the finish to the carcase.-----Oil based stain was applied to the carcases and drawer fronts. I sprayed the carcases, and wiped stain on the drawer fronts. -----Then I sprayed two coats of lacquer, scuff sanding between coats. ----- Next I install the Centerline full extension drawer slides. Having web frames is convienent, and I simply set the slides down on the web frames. -----I use a jig to align the slides. ...
