So here is the next phase in the early life of a box. After straight lining one of the boards and cutting to a rough length for my project, I split the board in half. I usually go for 3/8 or a little larger but since these boards were already surfaced I couldn’t make them thicker. LOL. I ended up a little proud of 5/16 thick. I know a lot of people make there boxes 3/4 thick but this way works better for me. I will add to the interior once the lid is sized and everything is...
Dear Me, I have spent much of the day completing the 3D model of the dresser. I have used similar construction found in the curio cabinet we have that is amish made. I had originally intended that the dresser have 3 false drawers across the top and I found it did not look right. 4 false drawers look much better. Here is the link to the sketch up model.SketchUp 8 Next on the list of to do’s is to make a cut list. Then I can go about sourcing the wood. Weth.
I am currently making six chairs and the process is truly time consuming. GrampaDoodie’s (Dale Peterson) did an excellent job describing the his chair making journey in his Lumberjock’s Blog. I highly recommend looking at this: Lumberjocks.com/GrampaDoodie/blog . I am not going to reinvent the wheel here, but show what steps I did differently than Grampa_Doodie or Kevin Rodel. Kevin Rodel suggested that one would construct a jig to hold lumber and then use a hand held router to...
My nephew didn’t want any more pics to go up until he had a chance to show it to his mother and grandmother (my sister), so I haven’t posted any update. However, since today was return to home day, all may be revealed. After finishing the main box, he cut and glued four cleats to the underside of the top. He clamped up the front and back cleats first, and then snuck up on the length of side cleats. They fit perfectly. I guess I didn’t take any pictures of him cuttin...

I’m on vacation from work this week so I’ve been able to get quite a few hours of work in the shop. The base for this table is from a big maple tree my next door neighbor had cut down to put a pool in. I cut mortise and tenon joints for the leg-to-foot joint, which I will also draw-bore, and a notched bridle joint for leg-to-brace joint…http://www.gunpowderwoodworks.com/blog/2012/6/22/trestle-table-base-is-almost-complete.html
I will be making two platform beds for a single client. One will have a very large headboard and the other will not. Both will have a set of cabinets lining the side. This is what’s not so ordinary for platform bed. These cabinets will set on top of the platform. So for a full size bed I’ll be making this one about 75”wide. This platform will have a ledge around the mattress extending about 2 ½”. It will also e a 4 post design with all inner edges curved inward a little. The fini...
My mother suggested that I make a picture frame for my grandmother’s 100th birthday. The party is in march, and the four of us (Stephanie, Beatrice, Elijah, and I) will be flying to New York. I looked online for table saw frames because I do not have much skil with or many bits for a router, and no router table. What I found was: http://americanwoodworker.com/blogs/projects/archive/2009/12/04/tablesaw-picture-frame.aspx This is a lovely and classic frame. The wood is beaut...
