Juniper Log Furniture : Floor Lamp #1: Wicked Floor Lamp, what ribbon like movement

03-06-2009 10:09 PM by Tim & Candy Hicks | 3 comments »

Nothing like having numerous projects to work on This lamp is very ribbon like; really flat but with lots of movement. It does have a small burl. The base will be cut down to size which will also shorten the lamp so that it is not so tall. We will scribe fit the lamp limb to fit the base. I have started sanding the limb and my husband has been working on the base.

She’s in college and recently joined a sorority and i thought I would cobble together a little box and paint with Tri-Sigma Greek lettering, colors and symbol. In this case I’ve chosen the sail boat over the skull and cross bones. More to come….

Exploring the Cherry Pedestal Design

03-04-2009 06:47 AM by David | 1 comment »

Exploring Design Considerations This was an interesting project to build despite its small size. This was a small commission piece to display a bronze of General Ulysses S. Grant for a Civil War aficionado. As a woodworker, the most interesting aspect was to witness the evolution of the design from an initial sketch that arrived via FAX to the final full size construction drawings that made it out to the shop. More photos in my final project posting. David The Folding Rule Blog

Arts and Crafts Round Table - Stickley #603 (round tabouret)

12-08-2008 03:09 PM by John Nixon | 7 comments »

The construction of the table looks deceptively simple, but it has it’s fair share of challenges. You have to be accurate and precise in the execution of the joinery to make the through tenons and interlocking cross members fit perfect.
