Greene inspired Night Stand #1: Time to start the execution phase

12-24-2007 07:31 PM by ChicoWoodnut | 6 comments »

Well I think I am finally done with the design of this piece. I made a change last night which is actually a regression to an earlier model. I like this change. I have reversed the rails and stiles on the door construction making the stiles be the horizontal member. I read an entry on this site the other day regarding this technique. Sorry I can’t remember who to credit it to. Anyway, Here are two jpeg exports to compare. I think the new arrangement gives the table a low and wide...

Workshop #2: The Ridgid R4511 is built!

04-22-2010 04:58 AM by Woodcanuck | 13 comments »

It took probably 4 hours total to unpack and get it all put together, but definitely worth the effort. Given what I’ve been working with for so long, I can see why people pay the money for a big heavy table saw. I turned it on and it just hummed…what a beautiful sound. AND…I could still hear the radio!!! I can even imaging continuing a conversation with this thing running. This coupled with moving my dust collection outside the workshop is going to huge for keeping ...

Greene and Greene Pillowed Ebony Plugs

Pillowed Ebony Plugs for Greene and Greene Projects Except for Darrel Peart’s book, it’s tough to find a source for “how to” on G n G projects. I don’t know how the Hall’s did it, But I thought I’d show my technique for making the pillowed ebony plugs common in Greene and Greene style furniture. I stole most of this stuff from fellow Lumberjocks, – I steal so much stuff that I can’t keep it all straight…just trying to pull it all together for this project and share it back – hopefully it w...

Aurora Night Stand #5: Ebony details

03-05-2009 08:35 AM by Topapilot | 5 comments »

I’ve made some progress on my nightstand, so I thought I’d post some pictures of the ebony splines and plugs. I bought the ebony when I walked into our brand-spanking-new woodcraft in Ventura and they had pieces on sale. I figured I could get it at my hardwood dealer, but decided a new business needs help, and they’re close (next closest store is two hours away; go figure with all the people in SoCal) I got one that was about 3×3x14 inches and covered in wax. I re...

Greene inspired Night Stand #19: Making Lots of Ebony Plugs

09-13-2008 09:51 PM by ChicoWoodnut | 11 comments »

I have been making Ebony plugs for the nightstands. There are 96 plugs in this project (48 per nightstand) so I needed to make a production run out of it. I decided to do a little “how I did it” for those who might need this in the future. The plugs will be set into their square holes with the edges flush to the surface. The tops are pillowed ~1/64” making them sit proud. Each plug must be polished to give it a beautiful sheen. I started with 6 1/4” X 3/...
