and then it becomes....... #2: behind closed doors

11-01-2008 09:23 PM by kolwdwrkr | 2 comments »

It’s been a while since this blog started. My mind has been full of so many projects, most of which were rash decisions to start. When I wrote the original part of this I mentioned the materials and that I would start the project the next day. Well I did cut a chunk of maple and it made it’s way from the shop to my dining room table. The table has become my carving bench, this way I can spend time with the future owner to this project who happens to be my girlfriend. The exci...

Zuni Bench

First of all I want to thank people for the kind words concernign this piece.Since there has been several questions about it I thought I’d take this time to talk about it.This piece has an interesting story about how it came to be.I had just finished a really large piece,very involved,very over the top(I’m lookin for a picture now),and wanted a break from the large project and gave myself a self imposed design project,build and design something with this small amount of wood that...

"wild cherry sideboard"

02-13-2008 04:28 PM by cowboy | 2 comments »

Several people have asked a few questions so I thought I’s tell a little about this piece.This was a spec piece that I wanted to take to a show.The cherry came from a board I selected from a pile of 1,000 bd ft of curly cherry and was obviously one of the wowie,zowie boards.It’s obviously a version of a very old design tha’s been around for years.Truthfully I don’t do that anymore as I only use my own designs and have gotten into a different type of thing,yet similiar....

Walnut Dining Room and Foyer #1: Project Description / First Status

08-14-2014 04:49 PM by elbarneso | 2 comments »

I plan to use this blog to track my progress on a number of furniture pieces going in our dining/foyer area for our home that we purchased about 1 year ago. Our old home did not have a separate dining room, so we had no furniture to go in this room. I decided to build my own pieces to fill this space, as I have been doing a lot of woodworking over the past year and feel that confident (enough) that I have the skills, time, and vision to complete this. Here is a list of the pieces in the set a...

The Craftsman's Path #51: Modern Shaker Table - Making the Top

12-28-2008 03:01 AM by Mark Mazzo | 2 comments »

With the legs complete I moved on to milling and gluing up the stock for the table top. I also used a simple trammel jig to mark the arcs on the ends of the top and cut them on the band saw. Check out the post on my blog for the details and photos of the process. Thanks for reading!

Dresser #3: Getting There

05-06-2010 03:55 AM by AFChip | 2 comments »

So I’ve managed to get a good bit done since the last post. All the drawers have faces now, and I’ve even been able to start finishing some of the drawers. I’ve attached the face frame to the dresser also. This consisted of a basic round over trim piece from the local Lowes cut, glued and tacked into place. Simple, but it adds a nice touch. I’ve also got this thing on it’s bun feet finally, and it’s all starting to come together. Next big project is...

Chessboard #2: Drawers and Posts

02-19-2011 04:28 AM by CartersWhittling | 2 comments »

Today I got off work early and the weather was +10 so I spent some time in the garage. I dovetailed the maple drawer and got the second walnut corner post turned. I had also glued up the 8 board stripes last night so I did some flattening to the board to prepare it to be crosscut. The dovetails turned out good on one side, but on the other I have some gaps so I might put some shims in at glue up. I have the drawer bottoms planed to thickness but still have not decided for sure if the drawers ...

Maple/oak project/desk #3: Dovetails, rebates, and grooviness, oh my...

06-29-2015 08:13 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, maybe today will go a bit better than the last one? Had an Auction to go to Saturday, and refurbbed a couple items I picked up at it. Bench is cleared off, time to do a few dovetails? When last seen, i had these sawn. I picked up a candle the other day, waxed the saw blade, and made a couple more cuts. Then the chisels took over. That chisel came from the set I picked up at Aldis. It is about 5/16-3/8” wide. I’m banging through curly Maple with this chisel....
