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 ...
This is the project I am finishing up. The backsplash was nixed due to a Lumberjocks poll here…http://lumberjocks.com/topics/50516 The tribe has spoken. -----So it will actually look like this…-----When spraying shellac on the drawers, I masked the cedar drawer bottoms to maintain the nice aroma.-----Nightstand stained and lacquered. -----After the lacquer cures for at least 24 hours, I wax the cabinet with Howard’s walnut wax. -----I use a scrap of drawer front stock ...
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...
This is the project at hand…-----Empty carcase ready to accept web frames.-----Installing lower web frame with biscuits in front, and dado in the rear. -----Web frames are glued into the dados. -----Notched corners fit neatly around legs. -----Checking that web frames are all in the same plane. -----Through mortise and tenon.-----1/4” straight bit.-----With a straight bit chucked in router #1, I hog out most of the waste for the dovetails. This step is optional, but I fi...
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. ------...
Here is a sketch of the nightstand I am working on. It features one 6” over two 8” drawers. -----Side panel components have been sanded, and the solid panels pre-stained. Now a final test fitting before gluing them up. The lumber is QSRO.-----A shallow groove in the legs will receive corbels. -----Side panels glued up. -----Front lower rails have been shaped at the router table, and finish sanded. Next up is the back panel and web frames.
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,...
Besides a cutting board here and thee and some shop furniture. I haven’t made any furniture for the house.. So it begins now. Read about it here. http://jubinsky.wordpress.com/2011/03/25/nightstands-v-1/ and here are some pictures.
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...
