The Simpler Life

1 day ago by TDog | 0 comments »

Well, As I work towards finishing a run of Adirondack chairs I’ve chosen to put the power tools aside for a while except for needed home repairs. It’s time to simplify. Time to quiet down my woodworking. I want to focus on building larger pieces 99% to 100 by hand. I’m still debating on the table saw issue. Time for creative challenges instead of obsessive production, stress, and the shrills of power tools all day. My new goals are larger historic furniture piece...

One feather and it will come down fast.It is loosely based on an idea I’m playing with on Shaker themed piece donewith a natural edg...

Boxland: Work Stations and Boxing Tips #12: Making Tea Box Dividers Of Venetian Blinds

77 days ago by Boxguy | 21 comments »

How do you install a grid work inside a tea box so it looks like this? Here is what the lift-out grill work looks like inside the tea box. This is what the lift-out grill work looks like outside of the box. The small compartment to the left makes a chain pocket so the stop chain doesn’t get tangled with the teabags... Why use Venetian blinds for lift-out dividers? By the time you plane, sand, and finish slats to make dividers inside boxes you have a lot of time and ...

Pine Nightstand #3: Making the Top, final assembly, and starting the finish

106 days ago by mitchota | 2 comments »

After the drawer was finished, I put together the cleats for the drawer to run on and also the cleats to attach the top. I keep forgetting to cut a dado on my apron pieces so I can try to attach the top with little wood clips instead. I’ll have to try that next time I make a table. The top for my nightstand is made up a few pieces of pine edge glued together, just like my poplar nightstand. I actually saved the top pieces from my chest of drawers—I had messed up those drawer front...

Pine Nightstand #2: Base and Drawer Construction

106 days ago by mitchota | 0 comments »

After the dry fit, I glued and clamped up everything to build the base. Aside from that one small mistake on cutting the mortises, it went all together fine. It came out pretty close to perfectly square and I didn’t need to use all my clamps! I started work on the drawer and learned the virtues of my planer very quickly. 1/2” pine isn’t easy to come by, and most of the pieces I would find at the store are cupped or twisted into uselessness. I made the decision when I ...

Pine Nightstand #1: Small mistakes and recovery

113 days ago by mitchota | 0 comments »

A while back (like 6 months ago), I was building a chest of drawers for my fiancee’s Japanese dance clothes. I ran into some problems with the pine boards I got being VERY cupped and I wasted a few good pieces trying to make the the drawer fronts. I saved a few of the straighter pieces and made a glue-up for a nightstand I was going to make for myself. It turns out that work and life caught up with me so my table saw and woodworking tools went into hibernation for the winter. But, it...
