Piano Bench #1: Design

2208 days ago by ytsejamr | 8 comments »

Well, I might as well give this whole blog thing a try. I’ve been having a hard time picking my next project. I have so many things I could make, but really nothing pressing. There is a large “honey-do” list, so I asked the wife what I should make next. She said “piano bench”. Our neighbors gave us their upright piano a couple years ago, but they didn’t give us a bench. Once again, I’m going to use this as practice for furniture building. ...

Sweeping Juniper Coffee Table #4: Sanding on the juniper base

2215 days ago by Tim & Candy Hicks | 1 comment »

As you can see, all the crevices have been sandblasted, the gray wood has been taken down to the rich wood grain and the gold is turning to blonde. This has been sanded with an electric sander and now I have about half a day of handsanding to make sure there are not any scratches, then it will be time ot build the legs. There is something very alluring about the movement of this wood, it can be so wild looking, yet so calm that it just pulls you in.

I was planning on using Mark’s method and do a lot of the cutting by hand. However, in the interest of time and for t...

This is a repost of my inlay process. The original write up was created several years ago, but I figure it would be nice to add to the Lumberjocks archives. I will eventually do a video on this process, but until then, here is a pictorial from 2005. The project is an ottoman tray. It will be a simple piece of 3/4 maple ply with a substantial solid padauk border. The inlay, is a simple interpretation of the sun. So here we go. It all starts with your design. Draw it out exactly how you w...
