Works in Progress #2: beatin' up my oak

06-24-2010 05:36 PM by tyskkvinna | 8 comments »

I’ve gone through and painted all of the pieces.. and have sanded about half of them. I’m amazingly unhappy with the cherry, overall. It’s just …... not what I wanted, I guess. It’s very flaky? Moreso than the other cherry I’ve worked with. Guess I can’t complain – I got it for free out of a burn-pile from a cabinet maker, so obviously it wasn’t a “great” piece of wood to start. Here is that piece of oak again. Re...

four station desk #1: First look

06-23-2010 10:43 AM by 559dustdesigns | 3 comments »

I’m now working on a couple of desks for a Medical clinic. I’ve been working on this project for about 13 days now. I built this unit out of oak plywood and red oak lumber. I started this project by constructing the the upper portions first. I had to wait to receive my hardware before building the base cabinets. This set of desks is custom for the client, the first desk station on the left is 50” wide than there is (3) 40” wide stations one of the stations is going to ...

Just for Fun... #20: Down to the Last Pegs...

06-16-2010 05:48 AM by littlecope | 18 comments »

Time to wrap this one up…I got in a full morning and part of the afternoon’s play today and completed the assembly… almost. Started by pegging the corners of the lid togetherThen the bottom, first up and into the bottom corners, then down through the top halfwayThe clamping on those may look precarious, but is actually very well balanced. I clamp each corner individually that way and lift the whole assembly to where I tap in the pegs.With that done, I finally fill in the exp...

Just for Fun... #18: A Total Mistake, a Fix, and More...

06-10-2010 11:58 PM by littlecope | 22 comments »

Yesterday I left off with the hinges all but cut out for my latest box…So this morning I was feeling good, feeling strong, ready to tackle the challenges of the new day. I began with the worst cuts to make, the side cuts. To help with this, I taped the two pieces together. These are heavy duty Scroll cuts, and I wanted to have as much heft to the pieces as I could. Being taped also aids in the stability of the things giving them a wider, flatter bottom The first cut went fine. On the se...

Nine days ago, that funny looking fellow in the picture had just finished sizing up the four sides of a new box out of some old Oak…The joining of the four sides went without event, and was done in his usual manner… Marking, Drilling for Scroll Saw room, and then cutting and fitting…I keep telling him there are easier, more exact ways of doing this, but he will not listen!! What a knot head…When he got those together, he had himself a little sanding party I think he...

Exterior Door - Part II

06-05-2010 10:49 PM by Troy | 6 comments »

In continuation of a previous post, this is the second and final part of the exterior door project.   The Arch  The first part starts with a nervous step in the project – the arch cut. Any and all mistakes would be very noticeable and unrepairable, cosmetically anyhow. The only tool I could turn to for this operation was my jigsaw.  Arch cut  I put on a new blade and clamped on an in-feed board to serve as a reverse backer, a “fronter” of sorts. It work...

This is the last post for this project Here is a picture of the inside cabinetry. It’s oak with oak trim. It was mostly made from scrap lumber from old kitchen cabinet do...
