Twin-Sized Bed With Pull-Out Desk, Closet, and Dresser #5: The Dresser Unit

01-31-2010 07:05 AM by gbarteck | 3 comments »

In our last episode…the desk unit came together nicely. Now for the dresser unit… The dresser unit, like the desk unit has to be built in “mirror image” from it’s design from the first bed. The dresser features three drawers that are 28”Wx7”Hx22”D. I’m putting full-extension drawer slides on the drawers, to give easy access all the way to the back of the drawers. A feature of the dresser that I really like in this design is th...

Big wood find #4: using some of the load.

01-31-2010 06:11 AM by rtb | 7 comments »

I’m not certain but what this should be separate but any way… Before I joined us I thought that workbenches, real workbenches were limited to professional cabinet makes, magazine editors, and hand tool advocates. Having now been exposed to a much wider school of thought I have come to realize that this is not the case and that I too was in need of something of this nature. ( I got tired of moving everything off the table saw every time I needed to make a cut.) I ‘ve spent se...

Twin-Sized Bed With Pull-Out Desk, Closet, and Dresser #4: The desk unit

01-28-2010 05:53 AM by gbarteck | 3 comments »

While all of the subassemblies of the second bed are the same as the first, I needed to build the desk unit and dresser units as “mirror images” of how they were built on the first bed, due to how the bed would be situated in the bedroom. Since the dresser unit is at the “head” end of the bed, and the desk must be oriented so that the chair goes on the same side of the desktop as the dresser (a change from the first bed design… see entry #2 in this series), th...

Built-in bookcases and mantel for fireplace surround in a Tudor Revival

01-28-2010 04:46 AM by Jonathan | 4 comments »

(Please note: I originally posted this earlier today as a forum topic, but then decided to put it in as a blog entry in order to keep all of my entries together. I have also added more information to this posting here.) A year ago Christmas, Santa promised my wife that he’d build built-in bookcases with doors, as well as an adjoining mantel. Well, Santa got busy over the course of that year landscaping most of the yard by laying brick pavers, constructing a couple of raised brick planter b...

Woodworking For A Good Cause

01-18-2010 02:34 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 18 comments »

My wife, Rita, manages a daily program that keeps adults with developmental disabilities busy. She works personally with these individuals and we see first hand how this program enriches the lives of the participants and their families. Most of them are affected by down syndrome. We choose to support this program every year with donations for the fundraising auction. This year I donated the red bamboo sofa table. This was originally made with the intention of it being a donation. ...
