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

12-22-2013 11:49 PM 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 use wire cutters to trim the tack to about 1/4” long, which makes them easier to install. -----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 s...

Cherry Refreshment Table #1: Breadboard Ends and Tusk Tenons

02-02-2014 06:40 AM by pintodeluxe | 10 comments »

Here is my cherry refreshment table which will feature a single drawer and breadboard ends.-----I started by making breadboard mortises at the router table. The mortises are 1-1/4” deep and cut in multiple shallow passes. -----I used a 1/4” spiral bit to center a 3/8” groove in the breadboard ends. I made an initial pass in the standard right to left direction. Then I flipped the board end for end and made a pass from left to right to avoid a climb cut.-----I set up my t...

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

03-25-2013 02:18 AM by pintodeluxe | 10 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 plywood strip before installing dado bla...

Arts and Crafts Wedge and Strap Bed #1: Laminated Posts

07-16-2013 07:34 PM by pintodeluxe | 9 comments »

This is the queen size bed that I am building. Material is quartersawn red oak. -----I started with some veneers for the legs. I resawed some 3/4” stock at the bandsaw, and planed them to thickness. Then I wrapped them with some shrink wrap to keep them flat. ----- The veneers are slightly oversized, and 1/4” thick. Although the finished veneers will be only 3/32” thick, I leave them thicker because 1) they are easier to glue up, and 2) they come out of the planer lo...

Twin Tenon Arts and Crafts Dining Table #6: Finishing Touches

09-11-2012 04:49 PM by pintodeluxe | 9 comments »

Top finished Frame assembled Four-inch long T30 lags secure the top timbers. Laminated or not? By laying out my jointlines carefully, I was able to laminate some 8/4 and 5/4 together. The glueline is at the angle of the timber, so it is not visible. In addition, I laminated some thin veneers on both sides. Back to the project page… http://lumberjocks.com/projects/71281

Arts and Crafts Wedge and Strap Bed #6: Side Rail Arches, M & T, and Bed Bolts

09-06-2013 04:03 PM by pintodeluxe | 9 comments »

This is where we left things last time… -----Now I need to cut mortises for the side rail assembly. The mortises are offset, to avoid intersecting the groove. -----I cut grooves for the false drawer panels in the side rail assembly.-----With all the joinery cut, I can now cut arches on the lower rails. -----Then I carefully layout hole locations for the bed bolts. The holes in the upper rails intersect the groove for the plywood base, however plenty of wood remains for a sturdy c...

Arts and Crafts Library Desk #1: Building Legs, Cutting Mortises

11-27-2013 08:39 PM by pintodeluxe | 9 comments »

Well after taking second place at the Portland Woodworking Show with the last project, a cherry trundle bed, it was time to start the next project. -----The current project is a small library desk for my son’s room. He helped in the design phase, choosing corbels over spindles for the sides of the desk. We also have a special white oak board with a bullet lodged in it. Caden decided he wanted to incorporate it into the desk. -----I am fortunate to have a stack of 400 b.f. of white...

Arts and Crafts 6 Drawer Dresser #11: Waxing Dressers and adding Drawer Pulls

02-04-2013 05:30 PM by pintodeluxe | 8 comments »

I waxed the dressers with Howards Walnut wax and #0000 steel wool. I tested the difference between sanding with a 1500 grit sanding sponge, and waxing with steel wool – and I prefered the latter. I waxed with the grain, and let the wax dry. Then I buffed it off with a clean lint-free rag. ----- For drawer pull layout I used Scott Collins no-math layout method. My drawer pulls have 2 bolts, 3” on center. -----I made a full-height jig to drill the holes for the machine bo...

Arts and Crafts Library Desk #5: Bullet Board, Jeff Jewitt Style Finish

12-18-2013 08:06 PM by pintodeluxe | 8 comments »

In part 4 of this series I pre-raised the grain, and applied the initial coloring with Transtint Brown Mohogany Dye. When the dye is wet it looks amazing, but quickly dries to a lifeless sheen. -----The drawer fronts were stained before assembly. After the glueup dried overnight, the drawers were lacquered. -----The desk was stained with Varathane Dark Walnut oil based stain. When wet the stain looked great, but it too dried to a grayish cast. Not to worry though, once the lacquer was a...
