In this video, I start with rough lumber and mill it down to make the slats for the tambour door. Then place them in a jig, glue on the canvas and presto! A tambour door is made! Then I rabbet the tambour and install it in the hutch. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! http://youtu.be/bkHC4lqsHms
Watch this video to take a short tour of the furniture I’ve made in my living room and dining room. These rooms are the first thing you see when you walk into our house. Unfortunately, the living room had very little furniture that I’d made. My wife and I came up with a furniture plan to resolve that and I’m well on my way to filling the living room with hand-crafted furniture. The rocking chairs are quite comfortable and I love the sweeping lines. The foot stools...
We continue with Part 4 of the Buffet with Hutch build. In this video we focus on the raised panel doors.
Hey Everyone, well its been a while since I have posted a project video. Things have gotten busy at the shop with the new ASDOO Music Cajon Drum line. Well I have a nice weekend project for you this time. It is a Mini Buffet with Hutch. The plans for this mini buffet with hutch are available at The Newfoundland Woodworker Website in the free plans section. This is Part 1 of the project. I hope you enjoy.
The day started simply enough; I was working on a computer desk I was building for my Mom and having trouble deciding how to place the hutch on the desktop. I’m only a novice at furniture so every detail is an exploration in how I understand the plans I designed. See a fundamental problem there ? Blind leading the blind, comes to mind. I had this gorgeous birch plywood I wanted to use for the desktop; it’s patterning in the grain was so sweet that I had simply looked at it for...
First attempt at a hutchI started this thread with questions in the forum section but I’ll finish in here since I am posting the progress.I thought I started this blog already but couldn’t find it so I’m starting this one.I bought the New Yankee workshop plans for #111 hutch. Having never built a piece of furniture I thought it was going to be hard. So far it’s is coming along fairly easily. I go back to the video when I have questions and they are usually answered in there. Tonight I a...
Well it’s been a weekend, not a lot of work done, but enough to make you think that you’ve accomplished something. Two screw-up’s, two corrections, one modification. Only had to recut two pieces of wood, not too major. Could have been a lot worse, and re-planed 6 boards that were too thick.I left off with the making of the lower case for the Buffet / Hutch. I stated that I needed to do some veneering and also some engineering for the mid drawer slides. I’ve done the veneering and done no ...
Cutting the tenons and fixing the mortises. In an earlier blog I was talking about story sticks and laying out the mortise cuts for the legs. I further stated that in my reply to Bob that: “The rails at the top and bottom have a 1/4” grove cut in them to allow for plywood for the insert. The top rail ended up with a 1/2” cut for the tenons, where it touched the panel, while the bottom one had still the 1/4” cut. Why the difference. ??” Well I found out why the difference. I miscalculate...
The continuation of the Buffet / Hutch build. Today was a busy day, just not in the shop. Lunch with my wife, pick up the kids at school, etc. So when I got into the shop it was after dark. I posted a blog on Hardwood Lumber GradingThis is why. My best friend, who I moved away from when I moved to Delaware, and I went together to purchase some wood that was rated as Select. I was unable to go pick it up, but he went and picked up the wood. If I had been there I think I would have walke...
Well I started the Buffet / Hutch. If I don’t get started I won’t have anything to say without getting myself in trouble, when my wife asks me what I’m making in the shop. I started out by making a full size template on plywood for all of the milling that needs to be done on the legs. Can you believe that those two templates have all of the instructions for milling 8 surfaces on the legs?Now you may ask what do you mean by 8 surfaces. This is the way that I was taught when you make ...
