As much as I would love to show you all the details of my current project, time just won’t allow it. But there is one specific part of the process I wanted to show you: making the raised panels. Now these aren’t your average raised panels, which we covered in detail in Raising Arizona. The panels actually consist of a walnut and birdseye maple sandwich (you can see the completed doors to the left). The resulting effect give us a birdseye maple border around a unique piec...
Recently I started a Hickory Chest Project. This chest will feature raised panels as well as a cedar lining. I have been videoing the build. To share with viewers who might like to watch. I’m right at the point of getting ready for the finish. But before i do, I want to pose a question to my fellow Lumber Jock’s… Here is a picture of the Chest. It has some cool features. ( beetle bore holes, knots, etc.) Id like to showcase in the project. With that being said. Here is my qu...
Blue Collar Woodworking #19: "Raise your panel!" Who knew you could do THAT with a hand plane + another contest!
I don’t know why anyone would want to skin a cat, but I hear there is more than one way to do it. The same is true with raised panels, you know, the ones we use on all our fancy cabinet doors… So this week Stumpy tries to make one with nothing but a Stanley #4 hand plane… ...then he decides to make a machine to do it for him! Before all is said an done we have a new jig that does far more than it was originally intended to, and Stumpy is telling us the next best thing ...
This is a continuation of the Hickory Chest build. This is an 8 video series. Here we continue with part 3, 4 and 5
A quick tour of my recent cabinet project. I hope you enjoy!
There’s a new Little Good Pieces blog post: Blanket Chest Design – Panel Raising. I explore various permutations in tablesaw-cut raised panel proportions. Check it out! http://littlegoodpieces.wordpress.com/2011/09/06/blanket-chest-design-panel-raising/
When building my wife’s new chest on chest cabinet, I decided to add a little something a little different than the plans that I had on hand, which would be new to me & adds a new challenge for me overcome. The basic plan for this storage cabinet came from Glenn Huey’s book “fine Furniture for a lifetime”, the Chippendale Entertainment Center. This same piece of furniture is featured in another of his book by Popular Woodworking, “Design & Build Your Ideal Entertainment Center”, and i...
Raised Panel DoorsBuilding a set of raised panel doors might seem like a daunting process. However, it’s simply a sequence of steps that, granted, use most of the tools in a serious hobbyist’s wood shop. Wood movement is an issue here since the panel grain runs perpendicular to the grain of the top and bottom rails of the door frame. Watch this video to see how to build a raised panel door in one 25-minute video. This blog entry also includes links to eight individual videos that highligh...
Here is the pciture that my wife and I picked for the starting point for the design for the crib. What do you think? Here is a few versions of the headboard. Votes on which one you would use. I believe that I will be making it out of Cherry with maple accents. It will be shaker style with an applied trim molding which I think will be maple. Picture below. The slats in the front may be flat and ~ 1-1/2” wide and possibly maple as well, but I don’t know if tha...
Mortising the HingesHanging doors involves a mixture of precise work and some trial and error. The first step is to choose a hinge and then mortise the case frame to receive the hinge. A common approach for hinge placement is to locate the top of the upper hinge even with the bottom of the upper rail and locate the bottom of the lower hinge even with the top of the lower rail of the door frame. I should have thought ahead and routed these mortises before assembling the case. However, I fo...
