TV Stand #5: Problems with the top....and the heat

08-18-2011 09:30 PM by Angela | 10 comments »

HeatWell I haven’t written an update because it’s been too hot in my garage in So. Ca. I have a detached, 1938, garage without air condition. The heat never bothered me but as I get older it’s been getting to me. ProblemsAnother problem I’m having is with the top of the TV stand. I mentioned before that I purchased 14’ of 6/4 African mahogany rough wood. I cut the wood into 3 pieces. (4’, 4’, and 6’) Because it’s been about 100 degrees in my garage, I decided to take it to my local lumb...

Arts and Crafts Entertainment Center / Sideboard #1: Side Panels

02-26-2013 08:38 PM by pintodeluxe | 9 comments »

Here is the next project, an entertainment center that is reminiscent of a Stickley sideboard. The central slat detail gives a nod to Kevin Rodel. The backsplash features my “wedge and strap” detail, also found on my A&C dressers. ----- Leg blanks are laminated from 3/4” stock. Next I add 1/4” thick veneers on two sides. Even though the finished veneers will only be 3/32” thick, I leave them 1/4” thick for now. I find that 1/4” stri...

Arts and Crafts Entertainment Center / Sideboard #4: Central splat, Drawers, and Doors

03-18-2013 07:47 PM by pintodeluxe | 5 comments »

This is where I am at currently on the entertainment center.-----There is an interesting central splat detail, inspired by Kevin Rodel’s arts and crafts dining chair. -----It is a series of slats glued together with the thin parts let into grooves. I found it was best to cut the tenons before creating the stopped grooves. With my first trial I cut the grooves first, and experienced some chipout cutting the tenons. -----The splat has some nice shadow lines, and forms three small squ...

Arts and Crafts Entertainment Center / Sideboard #5: Wedge and Strap Backsplash, Trimming Top, and Staining

03-25-2013 02:18 AM by pintodeluxe | 5 comments »

So this is where we left off with things last time…-----The entertainment center features a wedge and strap backsplash to match my 6 drawer dressers http://lumberjocks.com/projects/79208 -----Basically it is a shallow dado that receives a walnut inlay. I cut tapers on the backsplash first, then glued the wedges back on. I carpet-taped a strip of plywood to the backsplash to give me a straight reference edge to cut the dados (note to self: rip mdf strip before installing dado blade!)...

TV Stand #3: Moving along...gluing corners, cutting bottom and shelf.

08-11-2011 10:50 PM by Angela | 4 comments »

In planning to glue to corners I cut some angle blocks to assist in holding the clamps in place. I also used a special clamp for angles that I highly recommend if you have to glue up unusual corners or large miter corners. I then tried to figure out how to cut the bottom and shelf. I decided to use my circular saw. Before having a table saw, I used a circular saw to cut the wood so I have a good blade for plywood. I also own a forrest blade but I didn’t use it for this, d...

TV Stand #7: Cauls, jigs, molding and doors

09-15-2011 05:20 AM by Angela | 4 comments »

Bottom MoldingI cut a long piece of the African mahogany 3” wide. I original use ¾” but didn’t like the way it looked so I planed it down to 5/8”. I ran it through my router table using a Freud Roman Ogee router bit # 38362. I first cut the front piece. I used the same angles that I used on the main case. After cutting the side angles, the pieces didn’t fit based on the angles I cut them. When I glued the sides of the main case together the angles came out different from wha...

TV Stand #1: TV Stand, part 1: Initial Sketchup

06-22-2012 10:51 PM by pashley | 3 comments »

I’ve promised the wife a new TV stand/cabinet ever since we purchased our new HD TV over a year ago. Currently, we’re using one of my coffee tables. Just as I was about to embark on something else, I was told this project was next! I have had a concept in mind for the cabinet, ever since I completed my curved panel clock, shown here: I liked the look of the curved panel, so I wanted to incorporate it into the design of this TV cabinet, which is to be a stand, plus shelvi...

TV Stand #2: Making the front face frame... Next Step..... Ideas Welcomed

08-09-2011 01:05 AM by Angela | 3 comments »

If anyone has a suggestion or idea, please feel free to add a comment. As I said I’m sort of making it up as I go along. If took me a while to decide on how to secure the face frame. As I mentioned before I received this idea from re-assembling my parents TV stand. Once thing I was surprise to notice when I disassembled theirs, was how little glue was used. I believe their TV cabinet was from Ethan Allen. I contemplated using a tenon joint, and then I settled on dowels. After thin...

TV Stand #4: Bottom and Shelf added

08-14-2011 02:05 AM by Angela | 2 comments »

I’m ready to add the bottom. As member GregD suggested I’m going to use Kreg pocket holes to secure the bottom and shelf in place. I cut some support boards at a height that would allow me to rest the bottom on them and then screw the bottom in place. I turned the work piece upside down to make it easier to screw it in place. Once the bottom was secured, I cut the support boards down to the height I needed for them to support the shelf. I then installed the shelf...

Contemporary TV Stand #2: Starting to build

03-19-2011 11:49 PM by RDR | 2 comments »

I decided to use a basic half lap joint on this project. I’ve never really used it before, so I wasn’t sure what the best way to accomplish it. I don’t have a dado stack, yet, and frankly I don’t trust the accuracy of my junk Skil router and homemade router table. So, I decided to build a sort of tenon jig to help me cut the joint. This took longer than I wanted to due to several errors on my part. But, all things considered, it didn’t turn out too...
