Taliesin Desk Build - How's and Why's #3: Part 2B# - Inspiration at the Chicago Art Institute

07-22-2016 01:21 AM by EarlS | 3 comments »

I realized shortly after posting Part #2 that some inspirational pictures might go a long way towards illustrating my point (like the pun?). After all, a picture is worth a thousand words. Last summer we visited the Chicago Art Institute. Wow what a place. We saw plenty of major works of art. This one might be familiar: Of course there were plenty of other Masterpieces. Then, towards the end of the day we sauntered into a gallery that had furniture in it. I immediately spotte...

Blogging instead of Woodworking #20: At Last, a Morris Chair, Part 1

06-21-2016 04:10 PM by Douglas | 0 comments »

I just blogged (with lots of photos) about the Morris Chair I built this past spring. This part 1 goes through most of the build, and part 2 will be finishing, upholstery and stuff. For LJs, I’m also posting a project here too. (link fixed!) Here’s a few pictures…

Vintage Mission/Arts & Crafts style finishing technique on White Oak

01-30-2016 03:11 PM by CampD | 4 comments »

There was quite the interest in the finishing process I used on my Stickley styled TV stand. really only just gave the cliff notes version in its description. So with this blog, I’ll give the full detailed process I used to achieve that finish. It’s a time consuming process, more like it takes little time each day, but rather is spread out over numerous days. This process is not for those who feel the need to just get it assembled! Don’t fear, I worked ...

Stickley #603 Tabouret Table #2: Cutting Top and Glueup

02-03-2015 01:05 AM by pintodeluxe | 9 comments »

The dry assembly looked good, so I chamfered the ends of the through tenons, and glued up the table. -----Lapped dovetails secure the top stretchers. -----The half-lap joints and the lapped dovetails all came out flush.-----Then I cut the tops with a circle cutting jig and plunge router. I used a 1/4” spiral bit and cut the top free in multiple passes. -----The 1” thick top came out nice, with minimal sanding at the oscillating belt sander. I eased the edges with a 1/8”...

Harvey Ellis Nightstand #1: Intro

02-02-2015 03:32 PM by DBrown52 | 6 comments »

My wife and I will soon start building our dream home in the country. When it’s completed, we’ll be absent both quality furniture to fill it and spare cash to buy any. It’s quite the dilemma. Fortunately, she likes the Stickley/Craftsman style and I have a nice stack of cherry. The plan is for me to build a bedroom set to replace our current collection of hand-me-downs and discount pieces from the meatball place. We did some looking and both agreed that we liked the H...

Arts and Crafts Dining Table and Chairs #2: Flattening the Table Top

01-03-2015 04:49 AM by Marshall | 1 comment »

A question was asked in part 1 of this series on how to flatten the top… I started replying in the comment thread, but decided to just make it part 2. I’m investigating building a dining table myself. What is involved in “flattening” the table top? Any special tools or large equipment required? I ve seen people use parallel rails and a router sled for rounds and slabs, I suppose that might work? As with most woodworking tasks, there are multiple ways to accomplish...

Arts and Crafts Dining Table and Chairs #1: Design and Table Top Glue-up

12-15-2014 05:02 PM by Marshall | 8 comments »

I’ve been planning this project for quite some time. I actually started building reproduction Gustav Stickley Spindle chairs about three years ago. Other projects and a move got in the way, and they’ve been sitting disassembled in my closet for quite a while now. I decided to start the dining room project back up recently but to start with the table. Once the table is complete, I’ll at least have a usable dining table that I can scrounge chairs up to use with while I ...

Stickley #603 Tabouret Table #1: Half Lap and Lapped Dovetail Joints

10-20-2014 06:36 PM by pintodeluxe | 10 comments »

This little Stickley table has fascinated me for years, but it was never the top project on my list. I think anyone interested in building arts and crafts furniture should build these two projetcs: a Morris chair, and this little tabouret table. That way you have a place to rest and a place to set your drink. The 603 is more complicated than it looks, with offset half lap joinery and dovetails too. I actually can’t imagine designing a project that required the joinery to come togeth...

Jewelry Armoire / Lingerie Chest #5: Highlights (part 4)

07-18-2014 03:04 AM by Steve Erwin | 3 comments »

Sorry for the delay. It’s been a busy week. For all the details, head on over to my woodworking blog . In the meantime… here’s the next set of progress images… I finish assembling the drawers and fitting them to their bays. Not piston-fit, but as close as I’ve ever come. I can’t stress how important it is to take your time at this step. Take super light passes off the sides of the drawers and keep retesting the fit to the point of insanity. As so...
