Mission Chair Build #1

1024 days ago by pintodeluxe | 0 comments »

Here is the sketchup of the dining table and chairs I am currently building. The wood is QSWO with walnut pegs. The chairs are glued up, and ready for corner braces and pegs. The table should go quickly compared to the chairs. One chair has almost as many parts as the whole table. Cheers and happy woodworking!

Mission Chair Build

1035 days ago by pintodeluxe | 3 comments »

I am now midway through a project to build a mission dining set. It will include 6 side chairs and two end chairs. I started with the chair construction using quartersawn white Oregon oak that I kiln dried myself. The chair design is a modern version of the arts and crafts style that is also very comfortable. The style was inspired by Kevin Rodel, Gustav Stickley, and Elbert Hubbard. I had fun designing them on Google Sketchup. It is surprising how many hours it ta...

Sketchup Mission TV Console / Entertainment Center

1206 days ago by pintodeluxe | 2 comments »

I am finally getting proficient with Google Sketchup version 8. Here is my version of a craftsman style TV console. It is halfway done at this point, however the Sketchup program was very helpful in getting the proportions pleasing to the eye. Especially shaping and sizing the corbels. I printed the corbel component, and enlarged them to scale. By simply taping the pattern on my workpiece I was easily able to cut and sand the corbels. Cheers

Sandpaper Storage Cabinet #1: Sandpaper Storage Cabinet-1

1254 days ago by Huckleberry | 3 comments »

This is a versatile little cabinet in which you can store whatever your heart desires in it. The overall dimensions for this project is 21”w x 11 ¼”d x 13 ¼” h. Of course if you need something bigger than make it bigger, or to fit your needs. I am using Baltic Birch for mine but use whatever material you feel like using. As always if you have any questions email them to me at askhuck@hucksdiy.com.—http://blip.tv/file/4726686

Project Preview

1324 days ago by Dave S | 4 comments »

My next project is ambitious! Here’s an in-progress shot of the back of a mission style desk made of red oak. The kicker? The middle of the desk tilts up to become a drafting table with ratcheting positions! Skill I’m learning this project? Doweling pieces together. (Though this will mostly be pocketholes) structure is complete. Currently working on sanding, then finishing. Definitely looking for advice on finishing red oak. This will be a heavy-use piece, so the finish need...

Arts & Crafts Dining Room Set #21: Dry Fit!

1410 days ago by CaptainSkully | 2 comments »

I found another day off, so I immediately ran out into the shop before I could get distracted. I was able to finish the joinery on the base ends. As with everything else in life, the relative ease of the BeadLock Pro has disadvantages in repeatable accuracy. I don’t know how or why, but I do eight mortises and they only come out within 1/16” of each other. This has caused a 1/8” difference between the mortises, pretty much ruining my reveal on the spindles. I’ll f...

Arts & Crafts Dining Room Set #20: Joinery Shortcuts

1422 days ago by CaptainSkully | 1 comment »

I was able to squeeze another good day in the shop around work. I ran off to buy some more oak, then got home and planed enough of it down to glue up the stretchers/aprons for the table ends. While the laminations were cooking, I decided to give the BeadLock Pro a whirl. Having made integral tenons with chiseled mortises, and loose tenons with the router, I have to say this method is considerably easier and faster. First, I was able to cut off the parts to their finished length, without...
