Darrell Peart's Aurora Sofa Table #2: Virtual Design

1786 days ago by CaptainSkully | 7 comments »

I’ve spent a couple of hours in AutoCAD trying to find the right proportions (using the Golden Mean religously), and here’s what I’ve come up with: It’s 36” wide and 30” tall. Please let me know what you think. This project is too important to leave it up to me…

Darrell Peart's Aurora Sofa Table #1: In the Beginning...

1787 days ago by CaptainSkully | 5 comments »

This is my most ambitious project to date. I’m going to make a Greene & Greene sofa table that closely follows the design of premier G&G LJ Darrell Peart. I pinged him the other day, and he sent me to American Furniture Design Co. to buy plans. As you can see, they’re not identical to the one made by Marc in Darrell’s class at William Ng's woodworking school. American Furniture’s Version: TheWoodWhisperer’s Version: What I plan to do i...

Just for Fun... #2: Of Tops and Bottoms

1788 days ago by littlecope | 10 comments »

So when we last left the shop, we had four sides to this “Poor Man’s Box”, but no top or bottomIt’s not much of a box without a top or bottom, ha ha ha! I guess I’ll have to try to add some!The whole reorganization thing is giving forth first fruits, in that I was easily able to lay my hands on some scrap Mahogany strips that I might be able to use…Now I just need some slots or channels (whatever those things are called) to fit them into. It’s Table S...

mahogony/ironwood writing desk #1: my writing desk

1789 days ago by Jeremy Hill | 12 comments »

Can I put pics in the blog? I’d like to share my project with you guys, but it would be better if you can see it. Let me know please.We were given an overflowing truckload of scrap hardwood a fellow woodworker who was moving to south america. A lot of it was t and g floor cut offs and most of the ironwood planks were stained half way down the length and most all of it was stock rejected due to imperfections. So I thought it was a great opportunity to hone my joinery skills and do someth...

Mahogany

1801 days ago by Dudley | 11 comments »

A fella gave me a bunch of mahogany today. Most of it was 2×2, 2×3, and 2×6 around 4 to 6 feet long. But the real goody was about 10’ of 6” Chacago Bar Rail. All Honduran Mahogany.

The desk

1808 days ago by Ben | 2 comments »

When I got married over eight years ago my wife came along with a rather large, white desk, complete with a missing front drawer. As the story goes, this desk was once in the Swedish embassy and was taken home by my mother-in-law when it was no longer needed (probably 25 years ago now). She wanted a white desk, so she painted it. The pictures show some of the condition after many years and moves—a significant cup in the top, the aprons twisted over half an inch. I was all ready to b...

Bowling Alley Workbench #14: Chop Chop Laddie. (the leg vise)

1809 days ago by PurpLev | 13 comments »

This project is a fine example of the 80/20 concept. it takes 20% of the project time to complete 80% of it, and then, 80% of the project time to finish the last 20% of the project. As it gets to the details, things take longer to think through, plan out, cut…mill…glue… and finesse. this time it’s the leg vise Chop, and although not completely finished (still need to trim, round off, and apply BLO), it’s construction is done. I was originally planning to us...

Murphy Bed Side Cabinets #10: Side Cabinets Ready to Prep for Finish

1814 days ago by Gene47 | 1 comment »

Today was a good day. I managed to get the side cabinets for the murphy bed fiinished and all I need to do now is but some edge banding on the adjustable shelves sand and prep for finishing. I know that at the moment it looks like a hodge podge of material but the face frame and drawer fronts are made of Obeechee and upon the suggestion of a man at the lumber supply place I was told that this wood would stain up and look like Mahogany. I did stain a test piece and it looked like it was...
