Darrell Peart's Aurora Sofa Table #7: Truant

1643 days ago by CaptainSkully | 11 comments »

Well, it looks like I won’t have the money for Darrell’s class at William Ng’s school this weekend (or Disneyland either for that matter). I’m pretty bummed. I had to do the right thing and spend my tuition on sailing instructor seminars to further my “real” career. Luckily, the woodworking classes are offered often (I’ve got them all on the calendar), and Mickey will always be there. I may just have to bite the bullet and plunge back into the s...

Darrell Peart's Aurora Sofa Table #3: Wood Selection

1811 days ago by CaptainSkully | 6 comments »

Being as it’s Labor Day Weekend, and I’m out of QSWO, and my lumber yard isn’t open until Tuesday, I turned from my other projects and worked with what I had, a butt-load of mahogany. My buddy was over talking boat stuff, so I asked him to give me a hand with the behemoth boards. We laid out both 3/4” x 18” x 10’ boards on the sawhorses and looked at the magnificent, flowing grain patterns. We picked out the nicest 4’ section and he helped me rough...

Darrell Peart's Aurora Sofa Table #2: Virtual Design

1814 days ago by CaptainSkully | 7 comments »

I’ve spent a couple of hours in AutoCAD trying to find the right proportions (using the Golden Mean religously), and here’s what I’ve come up with: It’s 36” wide and 30” tall. Please let me know what you think. This project is too important to leave it up to me…

Darrell Peart's Aurora Sofa Table #1: In the Beginning...

1815 days ago by CaptainSkully | 5 comments »

This is my most ambitious project to date. I’m going to make a Greene & Greene sofa table that closely follows the design of premier G&G LJ Darrell Peart. I pinged him the other day, and he sent me to American Furniture Design Co. to buy plans. As you can see, they’re not identical to the one made by Marc in Darrell’s class at William Ng's woodworking school. American Furniture’s Version: TheWoodWhisperer’s Version: What I plan to do i...

A Bookcase Entry

2341 days ago by Al Navas | 29 comments »

Here we go, folks – this time for real. Someone must be first, and I volunteer. This is a barrister bookcase of my own design. I created it in eCabinet Systems, the program I use to design and create furniture pieces. Dimensions are: 60”H x 36”W x 14”D This could be built in modules, but I elected to do the bookcase as one piece. The model can be easily modified, now that the entire bookcase is designed. I also attach an exploded view, to pique your interest ...
