Allyson's Nightstand #2: Dry Fit

06-13-2009 08:50 AM by Thomas Keefe | 4 comments »

Many of the nightstand components are complete now and I am getting ready to start gluing. I plan to glue up several intermediate components and then glue the components together. The first component includes the two front legs and the upper and lower drawer rails. These pieces are all sanded now and I plan to glue them up shortly. The next piece will include the two back legs and the back apron. Finally, I will connect the front and back with the side aprons, center drawer rails and the bott...

Arts and Crafts Style Panel Bed #1: Panels, Rails & Stiles for the Frame and Panel Construction

06-04-2009 02:28 AM by John Nixon | 8 comments »

I’m working on building an Arts and Crafts style Panel bed. The bed is inspired by the Stickley Bed pictured below. There’s three videos in the series so far, and I hope to have more out soon. The quartersawn white oak grain on this wood I have looks really good in person, and I’m excited to see the bed come together. For measured drawings and in-process pictures, you can visit the project page at Eagle Lake Woodworking:http://www.eaglelakewoodworking.com/post/Arts-and...

I figure it was mold that had grown on the wood since my shop in our basement. So the next time I finished a project I put the dehumidifier in the room and used wood fresh from the lumber yard. The same thing happened!!! Does anyone know what this is or have run into it before?

Ronin Woodworking #5: Finishing my TSDC contest project (the drawer)

06-02-2009 03:24 PM by spaids | 2 comments »

All thats left now is making a drawer. I have some oak on my rack but I also have some oak flooring that is plenty big enough for the small drawer. That finish is very hard. Its “special” and you should resaw this stuff off before using it. Don’t run it through your jointer or planer. After I slice the finish off with my bandsaw, milling this stuff was very easy. I cut them a hair long and to the correct width. These pieces are 1/4” thick. I’m...
