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 #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. ...

Charles Mackintosh Inspired Computer Desk #3: Gridlocked and Broke Down

09-02-2017 01:37 PM by EarlS | 0 comments »

It’s been a while longer than I intended since I added to the build write up (sorry I’m old school and can’t call it a blog). Since I have drawings of all of the pieces from Sketch-Up I decided the best way to keep track of things was to hang them on the wall above my work area. Before I started cutting all of the various mortises in the leg pieces I pre-finished the grids. Since the grids have 2” openings, getting a good smooth finish inside them would be d...

100 foot cabinet shop #1: Thoughts behind the shop and working standards

02-13-2017 01:50 AM by Madmark2 | 3 comments »

Used to have a shop, X got in the divorce. :( Fast forward 15 years & I have 2/3 of 1/2 of a garage to build a cabinet shop in. The core of any shop is the table saw and within my (retired) spending limit I got a brand new Grizzly G0715P. Simultaneously with the saw purchase I added an Incra LS-III rip fence and an Incra miter gauge. I’m disabled and can’t walk / stand a lot so everything is within reach of my chair in front of the saw. I’ve got most all of th...

Making Hell's Pizza Cutter - Feat. Green Beetle

10-01-2016 02:01 PM by ShogunJimi | 0 comments »

In this video, I create a handle for “Hell’s Pizza Cutter” which was summoned to me by Steve aka Green Beetle. I reach deep into my woodworking background (thanks Dad) to fashion it out of Ebony and Purduk and sand it to 2000 grit for a glass like surface. And this unique blade will ultimately be auctioned to my favorite charity – Make-A-Wish Foundation.
