James Krenov Inspired Case #4: Book Matched Walnut Doors

03-16-2014 10:28 PM by Guy Dunlap | 1 comment »

It’s time to make the doors! There is a lot of layout due to the complexity of the different sizes for the rails and stiles and the bridle joints. I then glue up the panels with the book matched crotch maple panels. It was a lot of work, but the end result is beautiful! http://youtu.be/C4T-EnPy5n4

James Krenov Inspired Case #2: Making the Case

03-02-2014 11:25 PM by Guy Dunlap | 1 comment »

This project is coming along! In this video, I start making the cabinet from hard maple from the base up. All the joinery for the cabinet is held together with dominos. I then route the back of the cabinet to accept the solid maple panel back. You can see the video here: http://youtu.be/LBFjyuWoNEY

In this video, I start making a James Krenov inspired case. The pieces for the base came from a single piece of 8/4 walnut. I cut the parts and join everything with the Festool Domino and a few dowels. http://youtu.be/9OMv5T0Pbgo

The Studio furniture Movement#4

09-04-2010 07:01 PM by DocSavage45 | 2 comments »

Onr the journey, and using my investigative skills, I stumbled upon the smithsonian taped interview of James Krenov. Took awhile to read. Pretty honest guy. Also attempted to be tactful? In my reading I have come across other’s opinions laid down in visually stunning words and pictures. For me his were stunning words. Busted a few illusions. Mr. Krenov was also serindipidous(sp?) Considered himself an outlaw, and was fortunate to make a living at what he loved. He labeled himse...

The Studio Furniture Movement#3

09-02-2010 03:16 PM by DocSavage45 | 4 comments »

My path to enlightenment appears to be rather random. LOL I am discovering the woodworkers path, and the sculptors path as well as architechs and others can be lumped into Art? Found and interview with Krenov. It was great, he was a true Lumberjock! Always called himself an amateur (sp?). A catagory he liked to be in. He talked about others who may have been more “well known” but differed from him. He may have enjoyed what they created but not their process in creating. Willi...

The Studio Furniture Movement #2

09-01-2010 12:50 AM by DocSavage45 | 5 comments »

Just found “Art for Everyday by Patricia Conway 1990. She has done an excellent job of exploring furniture as functional art. Furniture has always served as functional. the Arts and Crafts movement had a big effect on putting the man/person back into the equation. architechs like Wright, designed furniture to be part of the art of his designs. Beautiful pieces that are not very comfortable to sit in. The Arts and Crafts movement ended in 1919. The Bau Haus inspired new ideas in fur...

The Studio Furniture Movement

Lumberjocks has had a few blogs listed in Google. I’ve mentioned that I am inspired by James Krenov. Searching for information about Mr. krenov I ran across Pitney and Ames who have been leading the way showing works of artisans that overlap in “form following function”. It’s what lead me here. I’m discovering others. And many who are closer in what they think and do with wood to my excitment with it. Some are really sculpting in wood as they are sculptors, ...

and then it becomes....... #5: Padauk

11-15-2008 07:05 AM by kolwdwrkr | 12 comments »

Well after I returned to the shop with my padauk from Austin hardware and lumber, I cut the material down to sizes close to what I was going to work with and ran them on edge over the jointer. After getting the edges straight and true I glued them up into planks and let them dry. I pulled them from the clamps and ran them through the drum sander. Then cut them to final width then length. I then set up my leigh jig and routed the dovetails and wha la the basic box stands. In these picks...

Working Wood #1: When East meets West

03-01-2008 01:23 AM by tomfidgen | 5 comments »

Two Planes go Head to Head These days, when you open up your favorite Woodworking Magazines you see an incredible amount of hand tools coming back into style by manufacturers from literally all over the world. While this indeed is a good thing for hand tool users and collectors, the amount of choices the amateur woodworker can have may be a little overwhelming. In this article I’m going to compare two of my favourite Smoothing planes, a Lie-Nielson No. 4, and a James Krenov custom sm...
