Here I’ve added the additional front stretecher to span the gap created by my previous mistake. I actually think it looks better this way so all went well. Now it gives the front seat slat something against which to anchor. I forgot to mention that the front seat slat has notches cut into the sides so it fits snuggly against the lets and sits a bit proud from the front plane of the chair. I then realized that I forgot to route the 1/4” round overs on all the tops of the seat...
Not a fan of blogs as I don’t need any more computer time, but figured I’d make my first one (maybe my last).So where to start? SWMBO has been asking for a new kitchen table to replace an existing $100 press board & Formica piece of junk.I haven’t made much from Cherry in many years, and have been accumulating a few 4/4 boards from CL thinking, if I found some decent 8/4, then I would start the kitchen table. Several months ago, I learned that one of the local cabi...

Wood species are numerous, Hard Maple, Walnut, Wenge, Cherry, Roasted Maple, Figured Maple, Purpleheart, Douglas Fir, Iple, Mahogany (14” width) and more. Mostly 8/4 boards, some 4/4 cherry. All lumber is rough finished.
I got a little time to work on the jewelry case this week so I ripped some of the little panels to proper width then I ran a rabbet around the inside of each one. Three will get glass inserts, one will get a mirror and one will get a walnut panel. The rabbets are 1/4” x 1/4”. I then squared the corners with a chisel. Off they go to the glass shop.
The six little drawers have maple fronts with walnut pulls. The pulls are actually a walnut front with an oval routed out of the center. The oval is routed first from the back with a 1/2” bit, then from the front with a 1/4” bit. That makes a nice little finger grab pull. I had to create a template for this oval.
There are the strips for the latest two end grain boards I’ve been working on. Craft show season is upon us again, and my wife and I are tooling up for a big push now that the weather is nice enough that I can get out in the shop without frostbite setting in. I’ve been cranking out a bunch of smaller boards, plus a few of what I consider average size… roughly 10×12x1.25” or so… I’ve done ‘enough’ simple boards now that it has ...
Here is my attempt to build an affordable wooden 4 drawer filing cabinet. I rule out: Plwood, as it is way too expensive in Australia for anything but the most expensive style of furniture.MDF, I built a single draw prototype and, even when using frame construction, it was way too heavy.Melamine, may be a good choice but for this project I don’t think it looks good enough.Solid wood, as it is too expensive. My current choice is to go with premium (knot free) pine and pine panel...
I went to visit Taylor Design Group, the manufacturers of Incra tools. They are located in Carrolton, Texas. I must say, I was somewhat surprised. I expected to see something of a showroom. Various implements or tools set up on display ready to be inspected, played with and perhaps drooled on. Not so…. Entering the door, I stepped into a small foyer To the right was a room full of parts and a man sitting there working on an assembly. I was toled to go down the hall to ...
I missed out on the book end party a couple weeks ago. I have had this project on my list for a while now so in light of the recent book end day I made these. Incorporates and unusual item and some dovetail joinery. Thanks for watching! Video link:http://youtu.be/3tDugk9aq0E Thank You Chris
