Darrell Peart's Aurora Sofa Table #3: Wood Selection

09-07-2009 06:01 PM by CaptainSkully | 6 comments »

Being as it’s Labor Day Weekend, and I’m out of QSWO, and my lumber yard isn’t open until Tuesday, I turned from my other projects and worked with what I had, a butt-load of mahogany. My buddy was over talking boat stuff, so I asked him to give me a hand with the behemoth boards. We laid out both 3/4” x 18” x 10’ boards on the sawhorses and looked at the magnificent, flowing grain patterns. We picked out the nicest 4’ section and he helped me rough...

Just for Fun... #3: Hey, there's a box here!

09-07-2009 02:53 AM by littlecope | 9 comments »

These so called quick, knock off little jobs always seem to end up taking longer than expected! But Life and responsibilities call and can’t be ignored…and it’s all good, because the FUN is prolonged!!When we left this last, I had just marked the strips of Mahogany for the bottom panel.One night this week I took an hour and went ahead and cut them out and fitted them in the same manner as the top.I also marked and cut the top corners (sorry about the blurriness but this is a...

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

09-04-2009 07:58 AM 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...

09-03-2009 06:27 AM 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

09-01-2009 12:56 PM 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

09-01-2009 07:44 AM 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

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

08-13-2009 07:21 AM 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...
