Desk #1: Design of Desk

09-16-2012 08:27 PM by ilyac | 2 comments »

I saw a desk I thought looked really nice on one of those flash deal websites a few weeks ago, and when I saw the price tag on it, and that it was made out of MDF I decided I could do better. I changed the design from the original with a few of my own details to add a little something to it. Namely the wedged mortise and tendon joints to connect the legs to the top with ebony wedges (just for a bit of contrast), and a thicker glued up top than the desk I saw. I also added holed along the b...

The WyOutLaw Chronicles #2: *“If it were easy, everyone would be doing it!”*

01-01-2014 09:14 PM by WyOutLaw | 8 comments »

“If it were easy, everyone would be doing it!” -Something I heard nearly every day when I was building log homes. It really applies to just about anything we set out to achieve. There are so many people dreaming of being fulltime woodworkers, but few are successfully making a good living at it. Why is that? Why is there so many failing or not even trying? Does it have to do with a lack of knowledge, talent, determination, or maybe its fear? There is so much information out there at our finger...

Log bed Sakura (cherry) #1: Hanami season, peeling

04-03-2009 03:32 AM by Junji | 9 comments »

In this time of the year, everybody goes to “Hanami” (meaning watching flower), but it usually has to be cherry blossom, not other flower in Japan. Actually it’s very nice season for a picnic or outside party after the long winter. Here is some image of Hamami. The best time to see the flower itself ends only for a week the longest, and it just started in Kobe now. But for me, I am not seeing flowers, but the skin of the cherry tree this year… I just started a...

Now for the scraps I got recently, I went to a local wood craft place where they make custom built ins such as cabinets, ent. centers, etc.. The gentleman I spoke with was very h...

Thorsen House Cabinet #2: Preliminary CAD plan and design specifics

11-24-2014 04:13 PM by EläväPuu | 1 comment »

I spent 3-4 hours this weekend poring over photos and videos of the original piece in situ. This is one of the appealing pleasures of Greene & Greene work and definitely one that feeds into my natural tendency for puzzles and rocket scientistism. Overall, the dimensions are not too far removed from the original which is fantastic in terms of not having to re-calculate proportioning to keep everything in check. The area the cabinet will be fitted within is 1640mm (64-1/2”) wid...

A Custom Furniture Scheme

11-13-2013 12:58 PM by Stephen Mines | 5 comments »

My furniture business (Stephen Mines Custom, No. Hollywood, CA,) did routinely build totally custom furniture, but the mainstay that paid the bills and made the business a financial success was a LINE of custom furniture. Yeah, I know, sounds like a contradiction, but really wasn’t. Averaging round 30-40 pieces (Country French, English, Early American) my catalog allowed the customer or their designer/decorator to order to their specific dimensions, distress preference (including none) ...
