I decided to build, what I think is, a nice jewelry case for my Niece’s birthday this summer. The case is Walnut with Bird’s Eye Maple for drawers and accents. There are some secondary 1/8” panels that will be either Baltic Birch or hardboard. Plans are from an older issue of Wood magazine. Here’s what it should look like when complete: Yesterday I cut everything but the hardboard to rough size. Then I dadoed out 10 tiny rails and stiles for half lap ...
She Who Must be Obeyed spake thus; Seek ye out the land of Ebay and secure these 40 vintage wooden trays that have been made known to me and bring them hence. Thereafter shall ye build a cabinet such that it will hold all my supplies of craft that I might practice on them. And ye shall make it so it fits in a specific place and is neither too large nor too small. As She had spoken, so was She obeyed. The draws came from an old police station in the town of Preston (Watling Street...
Back in the heart of winter, oh, about a month ago, before my surgeries, before Percoset, before spring….my wife and I decided to switch our dining room with our office. We had wood floors put in and the change has not only made the house look better but made us (her) VERY happy. The flooring was installed while I recovered from surgery #1 (planned). The everything had to wait while I recovered from surgery #2 (unplanned!). Despite all that drama during March, things progressed ...
In this entry I will cover the top construction for the nightstand. Before I get started I want to apologize for not having many pictures of the top construction. You may be asking “What’s the big deal about the top? It’s just a panel glue-up and edge routing…” Normally, I would say it’s not that big of a deal but since I am trying to match the style of existing furniture (at least in spirit) it was a little more complicated. The top is actually in t...

Next I decided to make the base. Since I wanted the skirt to match the skirt on our Captain’s Chest I copied the pattern onto paper then created a 1/4” ply pattern by gluing the paper to the ply, rough cutting with the bandsaw, then carefully sanding the edges using my disc sander and oscillating sander. I screwed the ply pattern to what would be the back of the front skirt piece and rough cut with my bandsaw. I then used a pattern bit on my router table to finish off the cur...
With the face frames built, it was time to build the raised panel doors and the drawer fronts. I used the Freud rail and stile bit set to do the cope and stick profile cutting. Then I used a Freud raised panel bit to make the raised panels. I used a Bosch 1617 router in a router table, slowed it down to it’s slowest speed and made several passes until I got the final result I was looking for. The drawer fronts have flat panels made of maple ply. Gluing up two at a time. ...
