Humidors #3: Humidor #1 Red Oak with Walnut veneer

01-17-2016 09:14 PM by McPheel | 1 comment »

In continuation with my previous post, I began this experience with a trip to Windsor Plywood to source the necessary materials. I ended up finding a nice piece of quarter sawn Spanish Cedar which was 4/4 by 6” – 8’ long, finished on 2 faces; a nice piece of quarter sawn Red Oak which was 4/4 by 6” – 6’ long, finished on all sides; A full sheet of birch plywood and a roll of Walnut veneer. I took a trip over to Lee Valley to get some quadrant hinges and als...

Humidors #2: First design concept

01-05-2016 03:16 PM by McPheel | 2 comments »

Time to plan out the design for my first Humidor. This will be a very basic box built to minimize cuts, make efficient use of lumber and hopefully hold a regular humidity. I started with a simple dimension that I wanted, I figured an internal box dimension of 12” by 8” would be a nice size to fit a beginners collection of cigars and cigar paraphernalia. I knew I wanted to have a depth of about 6” simply because I wanted to use the approx. factory width of the lumber I get...

Butterfly Dining Table #7: Cutting, Sizing and Framing the Top

12-18-2015 12:21 AM by Guy Dunlap | 9 comments »

In this video, I cut the three pieces that make up the top that totals 8’ when fully expanded. I also show how to install the butterfly hinges for the folding extension.Then I cut corners off and prepare the lumber for the solid wood frame along with making a solid “inlay” detail around the entire top. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! To get updates of this build as I go along, please follow me on Instagram – https://instagram.com/guyswoodshop...

Art Deco TV Table #11: Put On A Happy Face: Another Round of Veneering

12-09-2015 06:21 PM by newTim | 3 comments »

More veneering. I actually have two veneer layers on the drawer fronts. This is not by design, rather by necessity. For various reasons the initial veneering was just not to the quality I wanted and there was some other visible damage. So the only option I could see was simply add another layer. But the question was how to do it? Many many chapters ago I showed how I veneered the inside and outside of the curved fronts using a combination of vacuum bags and clamps over a bending form ...

Butterfly Dining Table #6: Vacuum Press Veneering and Shop Sawn Veneer

11-30-2015 10:37 PM by Guy Dunlap | 7 comments »

This time I’m starting to make the top for the table. Since it’s going to have a solid wood frame around it, I need to use veneered panels. I show how to make shop sawn veneer and get it ready for veneering. Then I show how I glue it to the substrate, and how to use the vacuum bag to press it to the substrate. I had a lot of fun doing this as it is a new process for me. If you would like to learn more about the vacuum bag veneering process, I recommend going to Andy Pitts’...

Inlay card table refurbish #2: So far, so good

11-25-2015 03:02 PM by peterrum | 1 comment »

The curled bits of inlay were carefully removed from the table and put aside. Then I used some water and a steam iron to heat the vacant areas and remove the old glue from the plywood base. I also used the same technique to remove the old glue from the removed inlay pieces. Then I used the steam iron again to steam the individual pieces of inlay an pressed them between two pieces of plywood to get them flat again. This worked quite well. Some of the inlay was so bad I had to replace it s...

Art Deco TV Table #2: Modeling for Shape

11-25-2015 02:55 AM by newTim | 2 comments »

Once I had the basic concept sketched out I needed to see the thing in the actual space. The height of the table is important for ease of use, aesthetic proportions, and to provide enough clearance along the sides to reach the chair controls. The angle of the table is important to set the angle of the chairs so they fit in the room. Yes, I actually set the chairs and divined the angle. Also important was the arc of the front of the drawers. So after making many real size 2D drawings I ...

Art Deco TV Table #1: Form Follows Folly

11-22-2015 10:02 PM by newTim | 6 comments »

Or perhaps the title should be, “Form Follows Tragedy”? Here is the initial chapter of the design and construction of a most challenging project. But why would anyone ever want or need to build such a thing? What follows is the documentation of a two year journey into pattern making, wood bending, form construction, curved veneering, trim inlay, creative joinery, jig design, and the ultimate victory of patience and stubbornness over a project that fought me every step of the ...

Splinters of thought #5: Don't get all bent out of shape

10-27-2015 02:02 AM by bearkatwood | 1 comment »

Sometimes in woodworking you need a shape that just won’t work because of short grain issues, stock availability, design concerns etc. It comes to a choice of steam bending or bent lamination. When choosing bent lamination there are some concerns to consider. The First consideration is the form you wish to use to use for the glue-up process. I normally hate MDF with a passion, but for this application it works well. I have used cdx and a/c plywood, solid wood, and phenolic plastic t...
