Mission Style Pedestal Table #1: Planning the build

04-22-2013 07:48 PM by Douglas | 1 comment »

After finishing a windows seat/banquette in my kitchen, I needed a table to go in front of it. For the design, I want several things: - single pedestal- split top to accommodate leaves- mission style, qtr sawn white oak- octagonal top I’d been hunting around for some plans and ideas, and none were exactly what I wanted. Two sources were… - plans I’d bought from Woodmagazine.com for a “Mission Dining Table”. It shows great info on making the octagonal top...

Caden's Library Chair #2: Stain, Lacquer, and Leather Upholstery

04-19-2013 12:14 AM by pintodeluxe | 1 comment »

First a plywood base was cut to shape. It has (4) 1” holes to let air escape from the foam quickly. Then 2” thick medium density foam is cut 1/2” oversized in all directions. The foam is cut to shape on the bandsaw, and held in place with spray foam. Here, high-loft Dacron is stretched over the foam and stapled in place. -----Next, goat leather is stretched over the Dacron, and stapled in place. Caden did a nice job with the pneumatic stapler. -----Here Caden is ins...

Stickley / Jeff Jewitt Arts and Crafts Finish

04-15-2013 01:24 AM by pintodeluxe | 14 comments »

I wanted to recreate this Jeff Jewitt finish from Fine Woodworking #157, however the article didn’t list which formula was used. I consulted with Jeff, and it was Transtint Brown Mohogany dye, followed by McCloskeys Walnut stain. McClosky no longer makes stain, but sold to Valspar / Cabot. ---So I set out to make a sample board to achieve the rich, dark color I was after. ---The top colors are stain only, the middle colors are dye first then stain, and the bottom color is dye only. ...

Arts and Crafts Entertainment Center / Sideboard #6: Lacquer, Wax, and Hardware

04-01-2013 04:51 PM by pintodeluxe | 1 comment »

After mounting the slides, I used carpet tape to temporarily attach the drawer fronts. Slides are Centerline 757’s, and mounting is the same as my dresser project here… http://lumberjocks.com/pintodeluxe/blog/34281 -----Drawer fronts installed with 4 screws each.-----Since the drawers are graduated from 6” to 9”, I made a full sized pattern for the largest drawer. Then I marked the size of the other drawers, and used those lines to lay out all drawer pull holes o...

Arts and Crafts Entertainment Center / Sideboard #5: Wedge and Strap Backsplash, Trimming Top, and Staining

03-25-2013 02:18 AM by pintodeluxe | 5 comments »

So this is where we left off with things last time…-----The entertainment center features a wedge and strap backsplash to match my 6 drawer dressers http://lumberjocks.com/projects/79208 -----Basically it is a shallow dado that receives a walnut inlay. I cut tapers on the backsplash first, then glued the wedges back on. I carpet-taped a strip of plywood to the backsplash to give me a straight reference edge to cut the dados (note to self: rip mdf strip before installing dado blade!)...

Arts and Crafts Entertainment Center / Sideboard #4: Central splat, Drawers, and Doors

03-18-2013 07:47 PM by pintodeluxe | 5 comments »

This is where I am at currently on the entertainment center.-----There is an interesting central splat detail, inspired by Kevin Rodel’s arts and crafts dining chair. -----It is a series of slats glued together with the thin parts let into grooves. I found it was best to cut the tenons before creating the stopped grooves. With my first trial I cut the grooves first, and experienced some chipout cutting the tenons. -----The splat has some nice shadow lines, and forms three small squ...

Arts and Crafts Entertainment Center / Sideboard #2: Pattern Routing Curves, Mortiser Mod, Side Panel Glueup

03-06-2013 11:02 PM by pintodeluxe | 1 comment »

For those who are just joining, this is what I am building.-----Time to pattern rout the lower side rails with an arched shape. -----I made an oversized base with toggle clamps to hold my workpiece in place. After bandsawing the rail to rough shape I clamp it in the jig, and zip it to shape. -----Arch complete. ------I stained the front side of the floating panels, and built the side assemblies. I installed some 1/4” foam weatherstripping in the groove to help center the floating p...

Arts and Crafts 6 Drawer Dresser #9: Dovetail Drawers , Spraying Shellac

01-22-2013 06:03 AM by pintodeluxe | 2 comments »

Here is my setup for cutting half blind dovetails. I use a larger-than-stock 14 degree dovetail bit. I think it makes nicer looking dovetail joints, and they feel much stronger. Here is a link to my blog about the special bit… http://lumberjocks.com/topics/40073-----This is the bit I use, which is a Rockler item. You can still cut these dovetails in one pass with the PC jig. -----I trimmed some aromatic cedar plywood to size and test fit the drawers.-----Grooves were cut for the dra...

Arts and Crafts 6 Drawer Dresser #8: Backsplash Inlay and Trimming Top

01-13-2013 08:04 AM by pintodeluxe | 2 comments »

With the top built, it was time to turn my attention to the backsplash inlay and wedge detail. ----I cut a double sided taper on the backsplash piece using a tapering jig at the tablesaw. ----I saved my offcuts to make wedge shapes. The wedges were glued back onto the backsplash. I was careful to place the wedge in its original position so the grain would align. ---- The backsplash is carpet taped to a strip of MDF. This creates a straight reference point to cut shallow dados for m...
