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

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

The legs on the desk are one of the unique features that set it apart from just another desk. Each leg is has an inside and an outside piece. They are spaced 2” apart with the grids providing the spacing for the top, and a 2”x3” spacer for the lower portion. 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...

Walnut & Cherry, new project #4: Lid work, and a sealcoat

09-12-2017 03:48 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Box is out of the clamps. Decided to build the lid as a frame & raised panel.. Did a bit of trading for a stick of Black Walnut. Crosscut to get a few parts. These for the raised panel.. needed this for a pair of long rails, and.. These two for the short rails.. Long rails were ripped into a matching pair….needed saw marks removed.. Next day. got the blank out of the clamps, and planed them flat.. Made a jig to hold the panel still.. While a pair of #4 plan...

Charles Mackintosh Inspired Computer Desk #4: Time for some Leg Work

09-02-2017 02:46 PM by EarlS | 3 comments »

I’m on a roll this morning. Things are quiet around the house and I haven’t gotten distracted so it looks like I will get 2 installments of the project progress written up. There are a number of mortises that will be required for the legs. Initially, I was considering using a plunge router with a template jig that slid over the legs but decided that approach would be too tedious. I also wanted to figure out a suitable approach to using the router table to make mortise cuts. ...

Shop stuff #103: Photo frame

08-30-2017 02:16 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Perhaps the longest title of any video I have made. It started out as a simple build, but, as is my habit, I complicate it a bit. There is also joinery that I was not completely satisfied with, although it did come out OK for my first attempt at a half lap mitre,so I did a “fix” to it. Sometimes accidents are a benefit. Lots of hand work, which I love doing, but sometimes the machines just have to come out. View on YouTube

Shop stuff #101: Monster Computer Base Pt 2

08-16-2017 12:51 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Well, with a new sheet of (not Chinese) plywood, I get serious about getting this thing together. Nothing like taking a simple box and making it complicated. Everything fit well and square and the glue up was relatively uneventful. Next time, we start the finish. View on YouTube

Maple Chest of Drawers #11: Top is done..

08-10-2017 02:34 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

With a surprise ending, too….Got bored, decided to try the plank for the top…4/4×13-1/8” x 49” long…..heavier than it looked, awkward going down the steps to the shop…. After cutting off a chunk to get to a length for the case…..I thought I could not only flatten the slab out a bit, but get it close to 3/4” thick…...wasn’t happening on the thickness part, but I at least got it almost flat.. Width-wise, was too narrow. Wal...
