Mission-style mahogany desk #5: Braces installed

09-01-2018 03:39 PM by Woodbutchery | 0 comments »

Some time in the shop this morning cutting and fitting the braces for the drawers. A few shots of a single brace. and the underside I’m using poplar because I ran out of mahogany. Currently, the braces are held in place by the stop dados only. No glue or other attachment. I also used the bottom “L” for the drawer guides. My thinking was that these braces are strictly for the drawers and are not meant to correct or support anything else. I would very much ...

Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms

07-22-2018 05:34 PM by AandCstyle | 12 comments »

I recently visited the Stickley Museum. I did a review last week and a few people asked for more pix. Fellow LJ Sawdust2012 has a cousin that is the Executive Director of the museum and she authorized me to post the pix I had taken. Thank you Sawdust2012, aka Tim. The front of the house. The adjacent buildings that were meant to be dormitories for a school that never got off the ground. Stickley thought that wicker furniture was a nice counter point to his ...

Mission-style mahogany desk #1: A view of the legs and progress on the desktop

11-17-2017 07:56 PM by Woodbutchery | 0 comments »

I talked about this project in my recent blog, and thought I’d give a shot at actually trying to blog a build; something that I’m not strong at because I don’t always think to take pictures of things while I’m doing the work, and the pictures REALLY help visualize whatever’s gong on in the shop. As always, comments, suggestions, or witty reparte’ are always welcome. Below is a snapshot of my ongoing sketchup-work-in-progress plans for the mission-style d...

Vintage Mission/Arts & Crafts style finishing technique on White Oak

01-30-2016 03:11 PM by CampD | 8 comments »

There was quite the interest in the finishing process I used on my Stickley styled TV stand. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/217866I really only just gave the cliff notes version in its description. So with this blog, I’ll give the full detailed process I used to achieve that finish. It’s a time consuming process, more like it takes little time each day, but rather is spread out over numerous days. This process is not for those who feel the need to just get it assembled! Don’t fear, I worked ...

Harvey Ellis Nightstand #1: Intro

02-02-2015 03:32 PM by DBrown52 | 6 comments »

My wife and I will soon start building our dream home in the country. When it’s completed, we’ll be absent both quality furniture to fill it and spare cash to buy any. It’s quite the dilemma. Fortunately, she likes the Stickley/Craftsman style and I have a nice stack of cherry. The plan is for me to build a bedroom set to replace our current collection of hand-me-downs and discount pieces from the meatball place. We did some looking and both agreed that we liked the H...

Morris style glider #1: Design and adapting to fit onto glider base

08-09-2014 01:14 AM by Orange008 | 1 comment »

My wife and I have recently found out we are expecting. Once I knew, I just had to make something for my wife and soon to be child. I know it is great to have a rocking chair in the baby’s room to rock them to sleep. I have always liked the look and movement of glider rockers. I figured it was the perfect opportunity to build one. I got the core plans from Wood magazine’s issue 112. I followed the plans for the chair pretty much exactly. Due to the low profile of the chair I ha...

Jewelry Armoire / Lingerie Chest #5: Highlights (part 4)

07-18-2014 03:04 AM by Steve Erwin | 3 comments »

Sorry for the delay. It’s been a busy week. For all the details, head on over to my woodworking blog . In the meantime… here’s the next set of progress images… I finish assembling the drawers and fitting them to their bays. Not piston-fit, but as close as I’ve ever come. I can’t stress how important it is to take your time at this step. Take super light passes off the sides of the drawers and keep retesting the fit to the point of insanity. As so...
