Dad's Plans #1: A Simple Headboard

12-04-2018 01:50 AM by grumpybear7357 | 6 comments »

As a child (actually until I left home) I slept in a double bed with a beautiful headboard that I knew my dad had made. It was made of walnut, turned styles, a beautiful piece of furniture. Dad enjoyed working in wood, although to my knowledge he only made two pieces of furniture – my headboard, and mom’s sewing machine cabinet (also made of walnut). Mom still has both pieces in her home. Dad had few woodworking machines. He had a 1952 Sears 4 inch Jointer, and a 19...

Princess Daybed for Daughter #3: Stock prep and mortising

07-10-2018 12:24 PM by JohnMcClure | 0 comments »

I picked up two douglas fir 4×4s and two SYP 2×10s. One of those 2×10s contained three bottom rails (long back rail, two short side rails). The front rail is going to be thinner, 3/4”, to minimize shin-smashing risk; so it should be hardwood.How about this, from the pile under the tarp?You’ll see.Once that’s planed down and the rotten section trimmed out, it looks like this:Now I have a stack of boards cut to rough length, a bit overlong. It’s not the wh...

Princess Daybed for Daughter #2: Drafting my plans - taking shape!

07-03-2018 03:47 PM by JohnMcClure | 8 comments »

Moving right along: I’ve drawn my vision in AutoCAD. I made a lot of snap judgments about dimensions and proportions, which may need to be revised. I chose an overall height of 48”, which may be too high. Mattress height of 20”, with 12.25” clearance underneath – I think that’s about right. 3×3 (actual) post size. 4” wide and 1.5” thick for the bottom rails, except the front rail which will be only 0.75” thick (less li...

Desk Chairs #1: Have a seat and let me tell you a story

12-10-2017 01:53 PM by EarlS | 3 comments »

Chair – a seat with a back on which one person sits, typically having four legs. Since Adam and Eve wandered around the Garden of Eden, humans have needed something to sit on other than the ground. To my mind, chairs evolved from rocks, logs, stumps, or whatever happened to be available into something with legs and a seat that was more functional, a stool. From there, some bright person discovered that the back legs could be lengthened and the chair was born. Everything since then...

Great, now I know what I want to build AND I think it will be compatible with the style of other furnishings in the room. I have a picture, provided by Captain Skully, since I forgot to post one. Many thanks!! Before I go any further, I must give credit to Kevin Rodel for his design. I wish I could afford to buy his works, they are amazing. Thank you for providing the rest of us with such inspirational pieces to imitate. If this turns out well I might try reproducing the Glasgow desk...
