Greene and Greene Curio Cabinet #3: Making some sawdust (actually, lots)

818 days ago by DynaBlue | 2 comments »

So I went and bought my cherry, regretfully understanding that much of it will go to waste. I laid out my parts on the rough lumber and cut it out using my jigsaw then forming the parts in the standard fashion. Lots of wasted cherry..sigh. Why waste? Because I need to keep to the rift/quartersawn areas of the boards and have to sacrifice the cathedrals. Many of my pieces will be very long and narrow, some very thin and narrow..none of that lends itself to a board with questionable dimens...

Greene and Greene Curio Cabinet #2: Planning for cloud lifts

818 days ago by DynaBlue | 2 comments »

The Greene and Greene cloud lift is a detail that really stands out on this cabinet and makes it different than many of the other Arts & Crafts cases that I’ve seen. They really add a nice dimension to the cabinet and make it a stand out piece of furniture. That said, they are not the easiest things in the world to create so here is how I went about making them. You probably noticed in the picture that all the cloud lifts line up around the cabinet and misalignment will rea...

Greene and Greene Curio Cabinet #1: The concept and initial work

819 days ago by DynaBlue | 4 comments »

A good friend of mine is getting married and part of the announcement included the locations they were gift registered at. I called him up and told him that I was happy for him but I wasn’t going to shop at some store for a gift and he should expect something I made for him. He had commissioned me to build him a cherry Morris chair and Ottoman in the past so I made some suggestions (coffee table, side table, headboard, etc) that would match his furniture. He thought about it for a bi...

Intarsia Basics #4: Part 4 Coming Soon (Sorry)!!!!

819 days ago by KoryK | 9 comments »

I just wanted to update on the status of the class and inform every one of the delay. For those of you that do not know, I had a misfortunate (stupid?) accident and broke a bone in my right hand a couple of weeks ago. I was hoping that I had progressed far enough beforehand that it would not affect the class. Unfortunately the bones are not healing correctly and it is taking longer for ir it to heal. I tried again tonight, but do not have enough dexterity or hand strength to sand while I...

Green and Greene Style Clock #2: DIY Router table out of necessity... aka Skil bash!

820 days ago by GodofBiscuits | 3 comments »

Necessity is the mother of invention. I have this saying above the doorway into my shop because just about every day I am having to create something new to be able to complete what work I have set out for that day. Yesterday it was a portable router table to replace the piece of $#!* Skil router table I bought from HD some time back. The router table has always been a pain in my arse and was never truly good for routing anything well. When I milled all the pieces for my Greene and Greene styl...

Greene & Greene Mailbox #1: Design Feedback

821 days ago by JamesVavra | 8 comments »

I’m looking for design feedback on this mock up of my new G&G mailbox. The back and bottom panel are not shown, and please ignore the dimension lines – I threw this together pretty quickly, just to help figure out the joinery. The center of the front panel will have something special in it, but I’m going to hold off on showing that until I’m done (also, it’s nearly impossible to model in sketchup). Specifically, what are your thoughts on the current sp...

Intarsia Basics #2: Preparing Your Wood and Pattern for Cutting

841 days ago by KoryK | 18 comments »

Intro: Hello to all and welcome to the first installment of Intarsia Basics. Before we can start cutting we need to select the wood we want to use and get our pattern ready. Wood Choices: I prefer to start with stock that is one inch thick because that gives you a lot of depth that you can work with. It will require a little more sanding on some areas but it will help to give your piece a 3D look. It is your choice if you prefer to stain your wood to achieve the colors or use exot...

Intarsia Basics #1: Introduction and Invitation to All.

864 days ago by KoryK | 36 comments »

Hello to all and all are Welcome, Intro: Hi, my name is Kory Kiker and a couple of weeks ago Ms. Debbie contacted me about conducting an online class for those interested in learning the art of intarsia. I was very excited about the chance to share a few things I have learned in the last three years of doing intarsia art. Before intarsia I did a lot of wood carving so I hope this helps give each project more depth and definition. I will tell you now that most of the things I’ve lear...
