Building a Dr. White's Chest #6: Trim

354 days ago by DustyMark | 0 comments »

TrimChests and wardrobes benefit greatly from the added visual detail of trim applied at the top of the case. Watch this video to see how I cut the cove for the trim on my Dr. White’s chest. Trim after application and prior to final sanding. Out-of-focus shot of the temporary fence set-up I used to make the cove cut. Be sure that your clamps have a good hold. Often, the areas under or near the edge of the table saw are difficult to attain a good clamp hold. NOTE: Years ago,...

Building a Dr. White's Chest #4: Face Frame

356 days ago by DustyMark | 0 comments »

Complicated Face Frame The Dr. White’s chest is a combination wardrobe/chest of drawers and has a complicated face frame. There are eight mortise and tenon joints, ten dovetail joints, and one half-lap joint in the frame. I cut the dovetail joints with my Leigh dovetail jig. Watch this video to see how I cut the female portion of the face frame dovetail joints. I cut the male portion of the joint using the same jig in the vertical mode and the bit set at the same depth. NOTE: Chip out...

423 days ago by DustyMark | 10 comments »

Watch this video that takes a quick tour of the furniture I’ve made for my master bedroom. Future blog entries will include the family room, kitchen, dining room, guest bedroom, and living room. I’ve built seven pieces of furniture for my master bedroom over the years. I like furniture that is in the Shaker or the modern Shaker style and have stayed mostly with that style in solid cherry with a natural oil finish. The bed is the oldest piece and was built in 1991. ...

Wardrobe

1115 days ago by BritBoxmaker | 12 comments »

Hi. We rent and built-in wardrobe space can never be relied upon to be there. Its not at our present house. We’ve been using hanging rails for some time now, dust is an issue. So I was playing with the CAD on my p.c. and came up with this. Its a (semi) mobile system that closes, like any good box. Bit like an old steamer trunk but 4’ x 6’ x 2’ Either that or it can be used open. Materials? I initially though cheap and cheerful pine and chipboard. Don’t know. What...
