Morris Chair #1: Morris Chair Design and Cut out parts

02-28-2017 04:26 PM by PPK | 8 comments »

Here I’m going to outline the method I am taking to build myself a Morris Chair. I’ve been wanting to have one of these because I really like the look and the comfort, but also because I want to learn some new techniques, especially upholstery. I know there are a number of other blogs on building a Morris Chair, but they are all different, and everyone has their own unique ways of building. So here’s mine! I am not using a plan, per se. I have been looking at lots of pic...

Hoosier restoration #1: A Hoosier Cabinet from the 1920' or 1930's needs some restoration.

01-10-2017 03:55 PM by makeBrooklyn | 2 comments »

In our kitchen is an antique hoosier cabinet in need of some serious restoration. I know the antique purists will say don’t touch it, it’s worth much more with the original everything even if it is falling apart but the cabinet is not an investment so much as a place to keep our corn flakes and bread. The Front of the cabinet and drawers seem to be mostly ok. There is a bit of cracking near the end grain on the top of a couple of the face boards but they seem to be stable now...

Dining Chair Build

06-28-2016 02:49 PM by PPK | 10 comments »

Here’s what I decided to make, more or less. I drew up some plans. I followed them pretty closely, but did change a few thicknesses of some of the stretchers. I red-lined them and will save them fro later. Plan of the chair back.Plan of the chair seat/legs, from the top.I glued up some blanks for the chair seats. Some people don’t like the “mismatch” of hickory, but I absolutely love it. The more contrast, the better, I think.I cut out two templates (the second o...

Folded Cube Table

04-29-2016 08:47 PM by Rick_M | 15 comments »

I’m calling it a folded cube because it’s supposed to look folded, and it’s a cube. I’m open to better names :) Made this table/stool with my daughter. No finish yet as it was due this morning and we didn’t start until late afternoon yesterday. It was one her design school projects. The design and design process are what’s important. I think it turned out very well considering all the miters. The top has 4 sides mitered. Four of the leg pieces have 3...

Slow Days at the Shop. #7: Mr Customer's Reading Table.

12-11-2015 10:05 PM by fatman51 | 3 comments »

Mr Customer finally decided on poplar for his reading table, which is actually a gift for his daughter. As I mentioned when I posted the pictures of the Wife’s reading table, which is made of dimensional lumber and finished with sanding sealer and Poly, like a cabinet, he and his daughter liked the table and the have been bugging me to build one like it for four years. I finally got the hint and the material is now warming up in my shop. Because he is paying good money for a piece of...

A Strategy for Woodworking #57: The Battleship

08-03-2015 02:55 PM by Gary Rogowski | 12 comments »

Projects come, projects stay. I walked around the shop one day to count the projects I had started only to put down for one reason or another. I got depressed by the number 20. Unfinished for any number of reasons. I cut a panel too short on one. I wasn’t sure of the curve of another. Not hard to make a new panel, 0r try to mock up the curve. That logic does not fly in the face of a simple defeat. I just let the projects linger, go to your corner. What is it that stumps me? Probably this ...

Farmhouse Table w_Buffet #1: The Concept

04-14-2015 10:56 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 17 comments »

In the not-too-distant past, a young lady and her new husband spotted a ‘farm house table’ project on Pinterest and thought about building it for their new house. A family member recommended me as someone who might be interested in completing the project for them. It’s the first thing I’ve ever quoted and been paid to make in my shop. Going through the estimating process was introspective, in a way; deciding how long it would take to build vs. actual, billable time was something I’d ne...
