Stickley #369 Morris Chair #8: Stain and Lacquer

140 days ago by pintodeluxe | 7 comments »

I sprayed the chair with Rodda #19 stain, which I thin with a splash of mineral spirits.-----After the chair had dried for 24-48 hours I sprayed Rudd lacquer (Satin sheen), which I strain and thin 20% with lacquer thinner. After the first coat I sanded with 320 grit soft sponges, and cleaned the dust with cheese cloth (not tack cloth) and compressed air. -----After the second coat I wet sanded with 1500 grit soft sponges. The whole chair only took 15-20 minutes to wet sand. -----The Rudd ...

Stickley #369 Morris Chair #7: Ottoman

151 days ago by pintodeluxe | 4 comments »

Here I am building a small ottoman to compliment the Morris Chair. -----The ottoman legs were laminated with thin veneers. As with the chair, I used 1/4” thick veneer strips that are later planed down to 3/32” thickness. -----The ottoman legs are planed to their final size of 1-3/4” square, and mortised to receive 1/2” thick tenons. -----I do an initial assembly to see how the joints fit. Everything is scaled down on the ottoman, compared to the Morris chair. Th...

White oak from WWII

163 days ago by poospleasures | 8 comments »

I hope this blog is read and shown to as many Army veterans as you can who were stationed at Fort Knox during the 1940,s through the time the wooden barracks were in use. What a memorable time this was. As a kid in the late 50’s I sold newspapers to the GI’s in these very same barracks. This is not an add to sell any thing.This is a story about many things including white oak and our history using it in WWII barracks. As you will see in my project I have the honor of making the wh...

Stickley #369 Morris Chair #5: Corbels, Pegs, and Washers

165 days ago by pintodeluxe | 8 comments »

With the two side assemblies glued together, I can now check the fit of the ladder back. -----Once you get the armrests fit, everything else seems to come pretty easy on this project. -----Here is a look at the beveled through tenons in the armrest.-----A 1/4” dowel secures the mortise and tenon joint. This is a fairly deep hole, and is best drilled with a brad point bit. Test the fit of your dowel stock in a scrap board, as a snug fit is key here. Hopefully you have glued the armr...

Stickley #369 Morris Chair #4: Ladder Back

167 days ago by pintodeluxe | 8 comments »

This is the Morris Chair I am building.-----Well it’s time to make the corbels so I cut a tongue on some 1-1/8” thick stock. The tongue is 3/4” wide to fit snugly in the leg dado. -----Once the tongue is cut, I place the corbel blanks in a jig to trace the curved shape. -----Here the shape of the corbel has been transferred to the blanks.-----I rough cut the corbels at the bandsaw, cutting as close to the line as possible.-----Next I pattern rout the corbels to final sha...

Stickley #369 Morris Chair #3: Slant Arms and Side Slats

172 days ago by pintodeluxe | 4 comments »

This is how the Morris chair looks at this stage.-----I wanted to drill all the 5/8” holes for the backrest assembly before the glueup. It seems like this step would be easy to forget, so I’ll take care of it now. -----There are a lot of odds and ends to take care of before glueup, including easing edges of the parts at the router table. -----Now the side assembly can be dry fit. -----Note that the angled top side rails are 1/4” taller than the shoulders of the leg tenon...

Stickley #369 Morris Chair #2: Frame Assembly and Through Tenons

175 days ago by pintodeluxe | 7 comments »

Here is where the project is at currently.-----Before I angle the top side rails, I mark the height of the small tenon.-----Then I trim away the excess tenon at the bandsaw. -----Fitting the small tenon into the back leg mortises. -----The joint looks a little peculiar at this point because the top rails have not been angled yet. -----With the frame dry fit I can measure the height of the side slats. -----With the repeater set up on my miter saw, I cut the 10 slats to the same length. --...

Stickley #369 Morris Chair #1: Leg Laminations and Angled Tenons

179 days ago by pintodeluxe | 6 comments »

Here is the project at hand, a slant arm Morris Chair. I am working off plans from the Popular Woodworking April 2011 issue, which I recommend you buy. The Author is Robert Lang. He posted a free diagram to Sketchup, but with this detailed of a project, you will want to order the back issue. My techniques differ from Robert’s methods significantly, so I will try to elaborate along the way. -----I like to start by laminating the legs for quartersawn figure on all four sides. ...

Arts and Crafts Library Desk #6: Drawer Slides and Hammered Pulls

243 days ago by pintodeluxe | 11 comments »

With the desk frame finished, I move on to installing the drawers.-----Since I am using single undermount slides for the drawers, I installed glide tacks to keep the drawer from tipping. -----I centered the slide in the drawer opening , and secured it with mounting screws. -----To adjust the drawer height properly, I add a hardwood strip between the drawer bottom and the slide. The hardwood strip can be planed to exactly the right thickness, and is glued in place. -----I then use some fel...
