A LumberJock offered to me a most wonderful gift. Some time in his shop.

2185 days ago by Karson | 16 comments »

No it was not an offer of free wood. A posting on one of my blogs last night was a offer of most immense proportions. The offer was to allow me to use his shop and his time to work on a project for my wife. Here was his offer I immediately responded yes. The LumberJock was none other than our respected Lee Jesberger I mean here was a LumberJock that built 36 kitchens for one customer. Here was a LumberJock that built a $100,000 kitchen for another customer. He was allowing me to be h...

Greene inspired Night Stand #17: Glue up + fitting and hanging doors

2216 days ago by ChicoWoodnut | 13 comments »

In my last entry I mortised Brusso knife hinges into the case. The next step is glueing up the case and then fitting/hanging the doors. Here are a few photos of that process. First I cleaned off the bench and layed the back and two sides out in sequence. The sides were already glued up in my last entry. The back has a center stile so it needed to be glued in place. That is why the back is dissasembled. Glue on the back stile tenons, rail tenons and left side mortise. Push ...

Greene inspired Night Stand #16: Door glueup and Brusso knife hinges

2218 days ago by ChicoWoodnut | 13 comments »

I glued up the doors and set in knife hinges this week. Here are a few photos of the process. First I glued up the doors. I sometimes have problems getting my panels and doors to glue up square so I came up with this simple jig to help with the process. It is nothing more than a couple of jointed sticks clamped square to the bench to keep the assembly square. Once I have the jig all square and secure I put two strips underneath to keep the sqeeze out from making a mess of the...

Greene inspired Night Stand #15: Blacker indent summary - Lots of sanding on this detail

2230 days ago by ChicoWoodnut | 13 comments »

I decided to summarize the Blacker Indent detail. I don’t own a belt sander so I did this all by hand. I got a lot faster after the first couple. First I cut the indent detail using a ramped jig. (sorry, I don’t have a picture). This is outlined in Darrell Peart’s book. I marked a line 1/8” in from the edge all the way around the bottom and another line 3/4” from the bottom on all the sides. I sanded the edge up to the lines with 150 and a ...

Greene inspired Night Stand #14: More on the fly design work. I'm happy - more pics too

2233 days ago by ChicoWoodnut | 15 comments »

After more thinking and feedback from the group I decided to have another go at the indent detail. I modified the jig so the indent appears only 1 1/4” above the bottom of the leg. I also adjusted the length of the indent by making the ramp steeper. The result looks like this in the scrap MDF. I also made the curve on the bottom on this scrap so I could transfer it to the leg for further shaping. Here is the first leg all shaped. I have a little more sanding to do but this...

Greene and Greene Bookcase Challenge04

2287 days ago by Karson | 14 comments »

Posted as a blog entry, for the official contest. For the Challenge04 I decided to design a Greene and Greene Bookcase. The Greene brothers, Charles and Henry decided to create a new and fresh style different from the Arts and Craft designs that was becoming popular in that time. Some of their designs were influenced by some Asian furniture. I opted then to build a Greene and Greene Style bookcase using breadboards and splines for the top but also creating a mid rail in the middl...

challenge04 Greene and Greene inspired bookcase

2288 days ago by Steve Moseley | 5 comments »

This is a Greene and Greene inspired bookcase with pinned mortise-and-tenon joints with square ebony plugs to decorate the pinned joints. There are also breadboards ends to keep the top flat. The corner pieces (or legs) are slightly tapered to be wider at the bottom. The back of the bookcase is finished so it can be placed all or partially away from a wall. All side of the book case feature a cloud lift pattern. The mortise-and-tenon joints could easily be replaced with biscuits depend...

I Rise to the Challenge ... sort of

2295 days ago by Hibernicvs | 4 comments »

Okay, here’s my best shot. I tried to use “sketch up,” but I figured that, combined with tax time (I’m a CPA) the frustration was too much. I hand-drew my idea from a sketch I made during singing practice a few weeks ago, while listening to the Basses and Baritones (or, if you want an inside joke, the Third and Fourth Tenors) screw up their parts while the director tore out what little hair he has left. Of course, I did this while watching some weird Sherlock Holmes...
