My 1st Attempt at Greene and Greene Style Furniture #15: Lagavulin

02-14-2011 06:14 AM by Don | 8 comments »

I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the completion of a project like this than my favorite 16 year old single malt… Except for maybe my favorite Anejo: Things I learned:- Green and Greene were some amazing designers. I already knew this but I have a much better understanding now.- So is Darrell Peart.- The Hall brothers deserve far more recognition than they get. If you don’t know who the Hall brothers are then read Darrells book.- Measure 3 times, cut once. Twic...

doors for the Bench

02-13-2011 06:39 AM by ScrapArt | 1 comment »

These are the doors. These, as well as two others…. Three Fir and one Mahogany. are now ripped down to uniform sizes. I think I will save the Panels for a Draws on a Future project. I spent 4-hours ripping these Down on an old beat up table saw..(Still have all ten fingers). Just about have enough for the butcher block top. Can not make up my mind on what design to do. I really like the the way you can pu in the wood fillers on the “New Fangled” bench to put in table top tools vices Et...

My 1st Attempt at Greene and Greene Style Furniture #14: Ebony Pulls

02-07-2011 04:03 AM by Don | 6 comments »

Ebony pulls are done and mounted. I even got the first coat of finish on them. I almost had to call this blog entry “Scewup #2”. I drilled the holes for the screws to mount the pulls about 1/8” off center. It wasn’t enough to allow the screw to pop through but it was close enough breath a sigh of relief when I noticed it. Here’s one of the pulls installed on a drawer and still a little wet from the wipe on poly: And the jig I used to drill the holes: ...

My 1st Attempt at Greene and Greene Style Furniture #13: Hickory Pulls

02-06-2011 06:15 AM by Don | 2 comments »

Yea, I know these are supposed to be made out of Ebony but I don’t cut anything out of ebony until I’ve practiced it a bunch with Hickory. It took a number of tries to get the drill press setup just right but this was otherwise pretty easy to make. Tommorrow I’ll attempt to make the real ones and if all goes well then my next blog will be titled “Ebony Pulls”, if not it will be titled “Screwup #2”...

Mahogany Kitchen Stool Project #9: Seat backs

02-05-2011 04:45 PM by sras | 13 comments »

Q: What goes slower than my progress on these stools? A: My blog on these stools! I have been making progress. Other projects and Christmas gifts provided distractions. And woodworking is still a hobby and has to wait for when there is time after everything else. I find that I am quite able to let a bigger project like this sit to one side for a few weeks and come back to it when I can. Next up are the seat backs. The last entry covered fitting the top and bottom rail of the seat bac...

Jordan's Project #2: Step #2 Building the Box

02-03-2011 03:19 AM by Jeff Waggoner | 9 comments »

10. I cut the two sides for my case, taking care to cut one small side from opposite ends of each board, to make the grain line up around the box. I cut them with a sliding stop to ensure that all pieces were exactly the same.11. I then put it together with rubber bands to test the joints and see if the grains were matching. I rubbed mineral spirits on the corners to test it.12. I measured all of the joints from corner to corner. The box was dead square. 13. I cut two inches o...

Jalen's Davenport desk. #2: #2: Decorative Base Blocks.

02-03-2011 02:28 AM by Jeff Waggoner | 0 comments »

I started the project by working on the base. It will have decorative blocks at all the corners and at the ends of the feet. The ones at the ends of the feet will be rounded. The wood I am using for this is 16/4 mahogany it was about 11 inches wide and a little over a foot long. 1. My jointer will only handle 8 inches so I had to plane sides flat and then join one at 90°. 2. Then cut to pieces 3 inches wide off of the blank with the table saw. 3. I used a number 4 smoothing plane...

Jalen's Davenport desk. #1: Rough Milling the Lumber.

02-02-2011 09:23 AM by Jeff Waggoner | 1 comment »

I have been excited about doing a woodworking projects and my brother and sister both placed in the student competition last year. You must be 13 years old by December 31st to enter the competition for that year. I turned 13 on December 27th meeting the deadline by just four days. I knew I wanted to do a desk of some kind so my dad and I started researching desk online. The problem is the competition restricts all projects two 36×36 x 36 so many desk would not qualify. In researc...
