Arts & Crafts Night Stands #3: Some Assembly Required...

1792 days ago by CaptainSkully | 4 comments »

Today, I took the rough parts and managed to achieve a few dry fits. The first one was to make sure the dadoes and tenons fit. The second one was to see how it looked with the bow cut out of the bottom piece and with the pre-finished panels installed. A couple of thoughts: be sure your table saw is waxed properly when cutting tenons like this. It helps if you don’t have to use force to push the piece through the saw. I realized I’m already using some of the stuff I learne...

Beginning Woodworker Just Starting Out #1: My First Attempt at Jointing

1804 days ago by Jimi_C | 8 comments »

Hi all, my first wood working blog entry. I’ve been looking to start getting into wood working for almost a year now, since I got a $6500 quote for stock cabinets for my tiny kitchen and thought, “They’re just plywood boxes!” So, I’ve started collecting tools slowly, but surely (slowly due to the fact that my wife and I are still paying off our wedding from last year!). I’ve passed the time reading books on cabinet making, wood working in general, and a ...

Stickley Sideboard #1: Selecting the Plans

1809 days ago by CaptainSkully | 9 comments »

At first, I was enamored with #802, as done so well by Dale I looked it up in Robert Lang’s book “Shop Drawings for Craftsman Furniture”. I found an article on building it in Woodworking Magazine, Summer 2009 edition. I felt like I had done my homework and thought I might slip this in between the dining table and the chairs. We already have decent chairs. I didn’t really realize it until I saw Stickley Sideboard #818 at the Arts & Crafts Fair in San Fr...

Arts & Crafts Dining Room Set #4: Change of Plans?

1809 days ago by CaptainSkully | 3 comments »

Thanks in large part to WhatTheChuck, I’m giving serious thought to changing the design of the underbody of the table. With all due respect to Schroeder's table, which I prefer the looks of in many ways, I think the lack of a footrest underneath is a good thing, and the spindles underneath are magnificent, yet kind of a waste of time, energy, effort, and lumber as they’ll be hidden by chairs. I think the trestle-style design might be more pragmatic, and still embody the simplici...

Limbert Lamp Table - Stickley #240 #3: Jigs & Dry Fit

1817 days ago by CaptainSkully | 2 comments »

Following TreeFrog as closely as possible, I cut out the blanks for the sides. I cheated a tad and used the wedges from the prototype to establish the tapers on the sides. One one side, I used one wedge, on the second side, I had to use both to compensate for the previous taper. These were cut with the blade at 90 degrees to the table saw to give me a point of reference when I’m cutting the miters. I created the jigs to hold the sides stable while I cut them at a 44 degree mit...

Refinishing update

1819 days ago by kosta | 10 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I have been really board this week and decided to do a test does dust collection really help improve sandpaper life. It actually does because I am working on a fish tank stand right now and I have to do a lot of sanding. Now I dont really care if I have to sand something for 30 minutes but it doesnt matter how long it takes. I use a dewalt 5 in random orbit sander and I have been doing most of the heavy work with the 60 grit paper because Im trying to get all the old sta...

Sketchup Designs for Future Projects #1: Artist's Drawing Horse

1820 days ago by Jack Barnhill | 4 comments »

My son has asked me to build an artist’s drawing horse for him so I put together this Sketchup (SU) model to work out the details. For those who are not familiar with a drawing horse (as I was not), the artist sits on the horse facing the upright. The artist’s easel is placed in one of the groves near the upright and then leaned against the upright for support. Naturally, I will post pictures of the completed horse when it’s done. More detailed versions of ...
