Stickley #369 Morris Chair #3: Slant Arms and Side Slats

03-03-2014 08:08 PM by pintodeluxe | 4 comments »

This is how the Morris chair looks at this stage.-----I wanted to drill all the 5/8” holes for the backrest assembly before the glueup. It seems like this step would be easy to forget, so I’ll take care of it now. -----There are a lot of odds and ends to take care of before glueup, including easing edges of the parts at the router table. -----Now the side assembly can be dry fit. -----Note that the angled top side rails are 1/4” taller than the shoulders of the leg tenon...

Twin Tenon Arts and Crafts Dining Table #2: Long Arched Rails, and Tabletop

08-24-2012 02:20 AM by pintodeluxe | 4 comments »

After pattern routing the long arched rails, it was time to turn my attention to the top. I started with 6/4 stock, all from the same log. Biscuits were placed every 6” to help with alignment and add strength. I once did an experiment with biscuits – joined two boards with biscuits (no glue) and soaked them in water for a while. I took it around to each family member to see if they could pull the boards apart—- and none could. I took the top over to Creative Woodwo...

Stickley Library Desk #503 #2: Panel Glue-up

12-08-2016 08:00 PM by markg11cdn | 3 comments »

The top of the desk calls for a solid wood glue-up. I dug through the pile of stock and tried to pick the nicest pieces with the best grain / fleck. Next, I did the usual prep for a panel glue-up. Plane it to height – 15/16”, joint one edge then rip to width. Next, I lined everything up on my workbench and drew parallel lines across all the boards. Those lines were used to cut biscuits to help with alignment during the glue-up. Next was the glue-up. I evenly spread ...

Arts and Crafts 6 Drawer Dresser #9: Dovetail Drawers , Spraying Shellac

01-22-2013 06:03 AM by pintodeluxe | 2 comments »

Here is my setup for cutting half blind dovetails. I use a larger-than-stock 14 degree dovetail bit. I think it makes nicer looking dovetail joints, and they feel much stronger. Here is a link to my blog about the special bit… is the bit I use, which is a Rockler item. You can still cut these dovetails in one pass with the PC jig. -----I trimmed some aromatic cedar plywood to size and test fit the drawers.-----Grooves were cut for the dra...

Quarter Sawn White Oak - repair/refinish/new leaves

08-13-2011 11:53 PM by rsain | 2 comments »

Greetings all, Wanted to post a little about the recent project. It’s not done yet – but wanted to go over some details here. First: Project is an early 1900’s dining room table. Needed some repair work and needed two leaves built since the old ones were not original and not well done. Client wanted me to refinish the entire table as well. He also wanted a color match. I decided to do the leaves first so I could do the color match before I stripped the whole thing. ...

A small conference table - the build #3: The top is ready for sanding

01-29-2009 02:41 PM by Al Navas | 2 comments »

From my blog: Whew! Today was time to glue up the two halves of the table top. I trimmed each of the two halves on the table saw, using the crosscut sled. Leaving each half slightly over final length, I tackled the glue-up. Sandy came to the shop to lend a hand, as I did not want clamps moving and lumber falling to the floor. Three hours late I removed the clamps, scraped the dry glue, and completed preparations for sanding tomorrow. I will drop off this panel at my friend’s shop...

Arts and Crafts Library Desk #2: M & T Frame, and Lapped Dovetails

12-02-2013 06:42 PM by pintodeluxe | 2 comments »

With the legs complete, I milled up some stock for the rails. All joints are deep mortise and tenons, except for the top drawer rail which is a lapped dovetail. -----Test fitting the lower drawer rail.-----The lower side stretchers feature through tenons. -----The upper drawer rail features lapped dovetail joints. With the same dado blade setup used for the other long rails, I cut the dovetail to 1/2” thick, and established the side shoulders. -----After laying out the lines for t...

Ellis-Mackintosh-Limbert mashup table #2: Branded. Then finishing begins.

11-21-2018 10:06 PM by kordwood | 2 comments »

The little plant stand/table project is moving along. This morning — at an ungodly hour before work — I gave it a final sanding with 180-grit, vacuumed the pores, branded it with my mark, and saturated the whole thing with TransTint dye. I was particularly happy with the two half-lap joints that hold the base together. I’ve only done a few, but these are by far the best. Can’t wait to see them totally finished. Next up: Waterlox sealer, General Finishes walnut glaze, and...

Twin Tenon Arts and Crafts Dining Table #1: Frame components and tabletop

08-22-2012 06:09 PM by pintodeluxe | 2 comments »

I wanted to design an arts and crafts dining table that included arched rails and twin keyed tenons. I like several of the Stickley tables, but wanted something original. I like the feel of Keven Rodel’s Talesien desk, which served as inspiration for this table. The stack of parts is growing… Initial frame assembly… And the tabletop glueup…
