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

06-27-2008 06:15 AM 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

06-15-2008 06:36 AM 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

06-12-2008 06:51 AM 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

04-19-2008 03:23 PM 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

04-18-2008 06:29 AM 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

04-11-2008 03:48 PM 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...

Greene inspired Night Stand #5: Progress

02-15-2008 08:00 AM by ChicoWoodnut | 5 comments »

I figured i would post a quick progress note. I have cut all the tenons for the case and fitted them. Here is a shot of the dry fit. I still need to lay in the dovetailed stretchers on the top. That will be tomorrow. I won’t bore anyone with making tenons. It’s coming along pretty well. I’ll be shaping cloud lifts by Saturday.

Greene inspired Night Stand #4: Milling Legs

02-10-2008 11:54 PM by ChicoWoodnut | 5 comments »

The weekend here in Northern California has been extraordinary. Spring is in the air. A pesky mocking bird has been trying to imitate my router. Although I had indicated that I would start making templates for the cloudlift panels, I decided to start milling the legs this weekend. There were two reasons. 1. It was the right place to start. 2. I had to buy a 1/4” slot cutting bit for the panel grooves. The local supplier (Western Tool) had the bit and arbor but not the corr...

Greene inspired Night Stand #3: Cutting up boards

01-29-2008 05:38 AM by ChicoWoodnut | 11 comments »

I bought 35 bd ft of Hondo Mahogany. It’s been stickered for about a week. I cut it all up and now it’s ready for the next phase. Knife hinges are on order and some ebony from e-bay. I’ll let it all sit till the weekend and keep my fingers crossed that none of the sticks will warp. I have been planning this way too long. Here are all the boards. They are about 11” wide. There is an 8/4 piece in the forground. Here are all the sticks and a rare sh...
