I want to make a cabriole leg with a quarter column in it. I’m puzzled as to how to make the pocket the quarter column sits in. Do I plan for the pocket during the glueup of my leg blank or do I make the pocket during the shaping of the leg. If it’s the latter, what is the best way to go about making the pocket?
I’m a little late getting this up for my LJ brethren since it has been up on my site for a week now. Sorry about that guys. Here I build the drawer and add my faux cockbead to the front. You will often find a scratched bead like this on backcountry or souther period furniture. The full cockbead took more time and therefore was more expensive. This was another option to achieve that beaded effect for the less discerning customer. Enjoy the show!
I’m finally back to producing these videos. I have been sitting on these clips for about a month now and was finally able to edit this together. Time to work on the period details of the table and we start to see it take shape. Enjoy the show!
This was a new technique for me and a learned a lot giving it a try. I think my neighbor’s kids may have learned some new colorful language too. Sorry kids! Come along an learn about eccentric turning and making a turned cabriole leg.
No electrons were harmed during the building of this table. This was great fun and even more affirmation of the time I spent building my workbench. Enjoy the video.
This build is part of my participation in The Wood Whisperer Guild build project. We are building these tables in the fight against cancer. Many of my fellows are donating or selling them with proceeds going to the American Cancer Society and our guild master Marc Spagnuolo is donating $5 for every completed table. Personally I will be giving this table to a good friend who lost her daughter to cancer recently. I hope you enjoy!
With most of the construction done it was time for detailing and contemplating how to finish the table. I share my thoughts on how I will proceed in this post in my blog. Thanks for reading!
My sister-in-law loves birds and has several lovebirds. After visiting a relative in a nursing home recently she came home raving about the beautiful aviaries they had at the facility. Well, she is set to graduate from her PhD program soon and I thought that this would make a lovely gift. I have gotten started on the bottom case and discovered that I wanted to share this so I apologize that that part is not documented. In keeping with The Wood Whisperer’s recent “design on t...
Well, after a brief diversion with the new (old) smoothing plane, I have been back to work on the Queen Anne Side Table. This post covers dovetailing the top rail above the drawer and cutting the Queen Anne style scroll work on the aprons. Next up will be the glue up and drawer runner assembly. Take a look and let me know what you think. Thanks for reading!
Well, after milling the stock and making a new tenoning jig for the table saw I was ready to cut the tenons on the aprons of the table. The jig was worth the effort and I was able to do a first dry fit of most the table parts. There’s more info in this post on my blog along with pictures of the new jig and the process. Take a look and thanks for reading!
