Dining table inspired by the Greene & Greene Thorsen table #4: Veneer Thickness

02-25-2017 01:25 AM by TungOil | 2 comments »

With my materials procured, it’s time to start planning the cuts to make the veneers for the table top. If I’m careful, I can plan the cuts to yield all of the veneer used for the top from a single board. This will give me the best grain and color match across the table, especially important when using figured materials. My table top is designed around 5” wide boards- the veneered cores for each half of the ellipse are made up of seven 5” wide boards totaling 35&...

Small workshop struggles with clutter; taking shortcuts

08-24-2016 04:21 AM by Jace McDaniel | 1 comment »

The past couple years ive developed a passion for woodworking. its my time where i can get so focused on my projects and completely block out anything the world is throwing at me at any given time. I guess you can say the craft itself is basically my therapist, only if i were to substitute a real therapist id probably save about 10x the money that i do on tools, but they are beginning to get to the point where they are starting to pay themselves off. In my opinion where the true passion for ...

Building a quick cheap and easy steam box

08-11-2016 03:37 PM by BenhamDesign | 4 comments »

I needed a steam box to steam bend a walnut handle. The last time I, steam bent a handle I just threw it in a contractor bag and pumped it full of steam. This worked OK but by the end of the steaming process the bag had started to melt and it turned into a bit of a mess. This time I decided to build a proper steam box, but lost interest because I hate shop projects, I’d rather be building furniture. Instead, I built a down and dirty steam box. If you would like the deep down detai...

Taliesin Desk Build - How's and Why's #3: Part 2B# - Inspiration at the Chicago Art Institute

07-22-2016 01:21 AM by EarlS | 3 comments »

I realized shortly after posting Part #2 that some inspirational pictures might go a long way towards illustrating my point (like the pun?). After all, a picture is worth a thousand words. Last summer we visited the Chicago Art Institute. Wow what a place. We saw plenty of major works of art. This one might be familiar: Of course there were plenty of other Masterpieces. Then, towards the end of the day we sauntered into a gallery that had furniture in it. I immediately spotte...

I’ve been working in the chemical manufacturing world as a chemical engineer for 27 years.

Greene & Greene Magazine Rack - my "own" design #1: Basic design layout

05-16-2016 09:31 PM by Mike_D_S | 5 comments »

My wife has some books, magazines and a few other things she uses often and they tend to sit on the table or off to the side of where she normally sits to read. She asked me to build her a magazine stand in a similar style to the Aurora night stand I recently finished. So I took up the challenge to do something in a similar style which would have obvious visual ties to the Aurora table, but not a copy. I spent some time looking through my reference books and gathering my ideas. Then I d...

Aurora Night Stand - Darrell Peart design #1: Aurora Night Stand

04-06-2016 02:58 AM by Mike_D_S | 9 comments »

I really love the Greene and Greene style (and more importantly, so does the LOML). I saw Darrell Peart’s Aurora Night Stand on LJ a while back and searched out the magazine article and saved it for later when I thought my skills might be up to it. I finally decided a few months ago to give it a try and picked up some Mahogany and a small ebony block. Here are a few pics of the in progress project and then a couple of shots of the table 99% done. I ran out of ebony, so I havenR...
