Reclaimed Pine All-Weather Morris Chair #7: Back rest

05-23-2014 06:40 PM by TimBridge | 1 comment »

Now that the seat was all set. It was tie to begin on the back rest. I mde a few more mistakes in this portion by drilling the pilot holes first. Some of them I drilled misaligned (I have since purchased a drill press so the next time I do something like this, I’ll be 100% sure my pilot holes will be lined up. What happened was the back rest box was a little misaligned at the corners. I cleaned it up with my sander and block plane. Not everything lined up perfectly, but I was ha...

Reclaimed Pine All-Weather Morris Chair #6: Round Overs, Arm Rests, and Fixing A Mistake

05-23-2014 06:35 PM by TimBridge | 0 comments »

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...

Sapele & Cherry Kitchen Table #1: Getting started in a big way

05-20-2014 02:54 AM by CaptainKlutz | 4 comments »

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...

Jewelry Case Build #3: Rip Panels and Rabbet Insides

05-11-2014 05:29 AM by RoadHogg | 0 comments »

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.

Jewelry Case Build #2: Drawer Pulls

04-30-2014 07:56 PM by RoadHogg | 0 comments »

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.

Projects #11: Boards galore- thoughts on production run quantities of work

04-30-2014 04:18 PM by NedB | 3 comments »

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 ...

A non-plywood 4 drawer filing cabinet #1: The design

04-30-2014 09:29 AM by GCM | 0 comments »

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...
