Desk build #4: Nurses Desk: framed, drawers, top glue-up

08-29-2009 01:13 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 13 comments »

RecapMy niece will graduate as a nurse in the near future. She has moved into a new house and asked me for a small desk for her new flat panel iMac. I decided to make an oak desk that would be loosely based on the mission style but with side panels that would reflect her future as an RN. My goal is a small desk 48” x 29” with keyboard drawer and a small drawer. I’ll be trying my first hand made dovetails on scrap and then on to my first dovetailed drawer I put this out here, baring all for...

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

08-26-2009 09:22 AM 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

08-14-2009 04:19 AM 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

08-09-2009 08:35 AM 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?

08-09-2009 07:59 AM 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...
