G&G Blanket Chest Build #7: Base part I

01-17-2015 04:20 PM by Ottacat | 0 comments »

A False Start When I went to the lumber store to buy the 5/4 wood for the top and base I made the mistake of not bringing the plans or dimensions. I ended up making my best guess. When I got home and laid everything out I realized that had bought only enough that I had no margin for error. The base is 3” high and I had so little wood that I needed to be able to get all four parts of the base from a single board. My widest board was only about 6 1/4” wide. I hoped that after ...

G&G Blanket Chest Build #6: Sides part II and an oops...

01-02-2015 03:42 PM by Ottacat | 1 comment »

After using the template to route out the fingers it was now time to put on the 1/8” roundover. For me it was a lot easier to use the router table for this step. The edges of the fingers also needed to be rounded over. This could have been done with a rasp or small sanding block but I decided to just stand the board up on end on the router table and do it there. Even the longer 41” or so sides weren’t difficult to hold during this operation. Next came plenty of...

Wood Workers Dreams/ Nightmares #1: If only I could acquire

12-30-2014 07:50 PM by WildWoodMan | 8 comments »

This is a limb still on the tree (I think Walnut), what a wood workers dreams, but in my case it is a nightmare I can not cut or even attempt to acquire.

G&G Blanket Chest Build #5: The sides, part I

12-29-2014 05:56 PM by Ottacat | 2 comments »

One of the aspect’s of Marc Spagnuolo’s guild videos that I like is his discussions of board selection for projects. He always gives a good discussion regarding choosing boards of similar colour and the important consideration of grain direction and appearance. In his blanket chest he made the effort to have a three-side grain match. After seeing his completed chest as well as various pictures of Darrell’s chests I decided this wasn’t really that noticeable. Thus I did...

Thorsen House Cabinet #6: hammering out the bugs

12-26-2014 04:47 PM by EläväPuu | 0 comments »

I trust everybody is full of mince pies and good single malts? Good. Progress on the cabinet design has been excellent, with only a few minor issues here and there. One specific one which I’ll outline is about the door design. First of all, a quick rendering of the more-or-less finished design. The eagle-eyed amongst you will note that I made the central door marginally too wide, causing the door to over-run into one of the dividers. Oops! That still hasn’t been fixed si...

Before starting this project, I want to ensure that I am fully prepared.-am I familiar with all the different techniques to build the chest?-what lumber do I need – which rough thicknesses and approximate number of board feet?-what tools do I need?

These include:-creating large panels by glueing up multiple boards-creating a template for the finger joints...

Thorsen House Cabinet #5: Finalising the carcasswork

12-20-2014 04:54 PM by EläväPuu | 0 comments »

Hi everyone – this post is more of a basic check-in than a large amount of progress. The build date on this project is still not set purely because I have other projects of higher priority. Specifically, I have a Gamble House dining room table and chairs to build. So anyway. This project will be pushed along through the design process whilst that one is playing out with perhaps a degree of crossover on when it will happen. Perhaps spring 2015? Based on my observations of the original...

G&G Blanket Chest Build #2: Understanding the plans

12-19-2014 03:44 PM by Ottacat | 2 comments »

Before starting this project, I wanted to ensure that I fully understood the plans and all the work required. In terms of fully understanding the plans this involved reading and re-reading the article by Darrell Peart in FWW several times. I wanted to ensure I was intimately familiar with all the components, their details, how to make them and how to put them together. As I looked over the plans and went over each part in my mind I realized there were a couple of parts of the plans and ins...
