Craftsman built-ins #8: Fireplace surround

12-16-2012 08:41 PM by mountainaxe | 2 comments »

Back in to the breach! As we approach ever nearer to Christmas day, my wife has been insisting that I return to the shop posthaste and build a fireplace surround for an electric unit we purchased last month so she can hang the stockings, etc. I figured that this project shouldn’t be that difficult. The fireplace itself contained instructions as to the opening size required. I already knew that I wanted to build a comprehensive unit based on a 1907 Stickley built-in design that inclu...

Sweet Chest of Drawers Build #10: Biggest Blog Yet--The guts: part 2- Drawer runners/kickers

12-14-2012 05:21 AM by Kyle | 7 comments »

To start off, I wanted to let you know that I’ve tried to put this blog together so you can read the words above the pictures and look at the picture at the same time. I’ve certainly come a long way since the beginning. Now it’s time to work on the drawer runners, as the title suggests. For me, this is where things are a bit more complicated. I decided to do mortise and tenon to join them to the front and back drawer dividers. I honestly can’t remember all the thought ...

12-10-2012 10:04 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 4 comments »

My daughter, is obtaining her post doctorate in Boston, has a small apartment with a room she lives out of. Her request, a sort of coffee table with second function as ‘sit on the floor’ desk. Also, something she can kick around and as she changes apartments sometimes, something she can move easily and even leave behind if the move is long distance.I love making furniture and I’ve made my share of higher end stuff, but I've made a few things out of home depot framing lumber ...

Sweet Chest of Drawers Build #9: The guts: part 1

12-06-2012 07:05 AM by Kyle | 5 comments »

Woke up and ate some more ding dongs this morning. Since I’m figuring this out as I go, I thought I’d work on the inside of this chest of drawers. I decided to copy the image of the drawer dividers that you see looking at the front of the dresser, and transpose it onto the inside back of it and make the drawer runners mortise and tenon.. I don’t know why, but here is the beginning of the process. Time to bust out the poplar….........The inside drawer dividers are also...
