The Craftsman's Path #20: Queen Anne Side Table - More leg shaping

2406 days ago by Mark Mazzo | 3 comments »

I was out of town last weekend for a family wedding so, progress on the table was stalled a bit. I got some more time in the shop yesterday and went to work shaping the legs for the table toward their final state. I had started this process before my trip but, I was not quite happy with some parts of the effort. The trip away allowed me to think about how I wanted to approach making changes for the better. You can read about my progress at my blog where there are a lot of pictures of the ...

Point of Evanesce ....two kings hedge with time, twas an open veil of rite, i transcend with wood….—by flp I’ve not had much computer time as of late for blogging, so it feels good to get a post up. We seem to be getting hammered with snow….a little much early up here this year, so I’m busy outside working the plow truck and doing clean-up around the place. When I say early up here, well not really early….it’s just that in the last couple of...

The Best of 'Wood Art" #6: "Defining Design in Wood" --by RusticWoodArt

2414 days ago by frank | 6 comments »

Defining Design in Wood ....and so I continue finding the numbers that can be assembled out of 2’‘x4’‘x96’’, or as I have now come to see as (2) re-sawed wood pieces of 1’‘x4’‘x96’’.... Designs are the dreams I write//draw on paper, after imagination has come back, from where she flies in the lofty clouded skies of inspiration. No-idea of where this one was going, when I started this one….just let my hands go ...

The Craftsman's Path #19: Queen Anne Side Table - Turning and shaping the feet

2425 days ago by Mark Mazzo | 3 comments »

After band sawing the legs to rough shape in my last post, the next steps in developing the legs were to turn and shape the feet and to smooth and mark them for final shaping. This was an interesting process. There’s a good description and lots of pictures in the latest post on my blog. Let me know what you think – thanks for reading!

The Craftsman's Path #18: Queen Anne Side Table - Roughing out the legs

2428 days ago by Mark Mazzo | 6 comments »

As I mentioned in my last blog post, I was recently inspired to build a period reproduction piece of furniture. I chose to do a side table in the Queen Anne style based on a Glen Huey design with cabriole legs, scrolled aprons and a single drawer. I like this style and it poses some challenges in developing new skills. The picture is Glen Huey’s version. I’ve started down the path of building this piece and I hope that you’ll follow along as I post entries about its de...
