Charles Mackintosh Inspired Computer Desk #7: Topping things off

10-07-2017 01:16 PM by EarlS | 4 comments »

I saved the best for last, or certainly the most challenging part of the project, the desk top. This is a close up of the top profile at the leg from Kevin Rodel’s desk. At first glance it doesn’t seem that difficult, cut some panels and glue them together, then cut a profile on the edge.

Had a little 3 month old puppy in the house…..she came down sick the other day….the next morning she passed away, before we could even get her to the vet…..thinking something poisoned her out in the yard…. Ok, I wasn’t in a very good mood when I returned to the shop… Hammer and chisel to shape the feet a bit, to at least blend them together….Ripped a bunch of maple scraps into 1×1s…and made a frame of sorts.. To support the plywood...

Charles Mackintosh Inspired Computer Desk #5: Just a little off the top

09-16-2017 02:06 PM by EarlS | 2 comments »

After the mortises were cut into the legs and the leg sections were dry fit together in the last post, the edge details for the legs needed to be finalized. The outside piece is rounded over from the front to t...
