The Simpler Life

18 days 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...

Mads has been to Scotland andis back in a few days :) I’m as usual backed up with orders, not that effects mytime out to create.Now that is the pita that causes the backlog. Honest its scientifically sound.My DIL Annes birthday was last Friday, no rush there then. Ok that looks as if there is hope. 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...

95 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

124 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

124 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 ...
