Arts and Crafts Nightstand #6: Drawer Pulls, and Installing the Top

436 days ago by pintodeluxe | 7 comments »

Time to install the drawer pulls. My hardware requires two holes drilled 3” on center.-----I use this little jig to make sure all the holes are aligned correctly. It is a full-sized pattern, and works for the 6” and 8” drawers. I use Scott Collins “No Math” method to layout the pull location, which is discussed further in my dresser blog here… http://lumberjocks.com/pintodeluxe/blog/34346-----I register the left edge of the drawer against the stop on ...

Arts and Crafts Nightstand #4: Tops, Drawer Fronts, and Corbels

450 days ago by pintodeluxe | 6 comments »

This is the nightstand project…-----Panel glueup for the tops. I do my glueups in two stages. First I glue two pairs of boards together to make planks. Then I send them through the planer while they are still narrow enough to fit. Finally I glue these two planks together to make a panel. I describe flat panel construction in detail in my dresser blog… http://lumberjocks.com/pintodeluxe/blog/33797-----A pair of rough glueups complete. -----I made a template for the corbels, w...

464 days ago by pintodeluxe | 2 comments »

Here is the design for the nightstand….-----I set about notching stock for the web frames. I use a dado blade, however a bandsaw would work too. -----The web frames are joined with biscuits, and checked with a straightedge. -----Web frames and more web frames…------One or two of the joints needed a few passes with a block plane. -----I glued the lower front rail in place, connecting the two side panels. It’s amazing how much strength a through M&T joint has. ------...

Nightstands #2: Finishing side frames and panels

1235 days ago by joshtank | 0 comments »

i got 2 sets and frames and panels now. At first I did the panel in poplar because of this cool grain, but then realized the stain I want to use will hide the grain. The arch in the tops was done using a very crappy skil brand jigsaw. I have yet to do the archs in the next set. I made some panels from the oak to replace the poplar. Resawn on the table saw, so the kerf is kinda big, but still sort of a neat bookmatch (i don’t have a bandsaw). I don’t have any pictures,...

Nightstand Progress #2: Almost Done.

2430 days ago by gizmodyne | 10 comments »

Sunlight Last week I sanded nightstand #1. I had scuffed it up badly storing it and had to resand a large portion of the outside. I used pocket screws to attach the top. Since I sanded the project, I needed to expose it to sunlight to even out the color, so outside it went. It was nice today, over 70 degrees in the sun.Sunshine..U.V.—- Second UpThe second nightstand only needed detailing on the drawers. I went over them yesterday with 220 and then cheese-clothed them. The F...
