Arts and Crafts Entertainment Center / Sideboard #6: Lacquer, Wax, and Hardware

04-01-2013 04:51 PM by pintodeluxe | 1 comment »

After mounting the slides, I used carpet tape to temporarily attach the drawer fronts. Slides are Centerline 757’s, and mounting is the same as my dresser project here… http://lumberjocks.com/pintodeluxe/blog/34281 -----Drawer fronts installed with 4 screws each.-----Since the drawers are graduated from 6” to 9”, I made a full sized pattern for the largest drawer. Then I marked the size of the other drawers, and used those lines to lay out all drawer pull holes o...

Caden's Library Chair #2: Stain, Lacquer, and Leather Upholstery

04-19-2013 12:14 AM by pintodeluxe | 1 comment »

First a plywood base was cut to shape. It has (4) 1” holes to let air escape from the foam quickly. Then 2” thick medium density foam is cut 1/2” oversized in all directions. The foam is cut to shape on the bandsaw, and held in place with spray foam. Here, high-loft Dacron is stretched over the foam and stapled in place. -----Next, goat leather is stretched over the Dacron, and stapled in place. Caden did a nice job with the pneumatic stapler. -----Here Caden is ins...

Quarter Sawn White Oak - repair/refinish/new leaves #2

08-15-2011 09:53 PM by rsain | 1 comment »

Just finished up the leaves. Still going to do the undersides, but not too much work there – just a quick coat of 2lb cut shellac to seal it off. Here are a few more pics. Like I said previously I’m VERY pleased with how this shellac finish turned out. And the last step of hand burnishing is a must. I compared the two leaves (one with and one without) and there was a noticeable difference in smoothness of the reflection between the two. So – I went ahead and rubbed out th...

Stickley Library Desk #503 #1: Getting Started

12-05-2016 07:05 PM by markg11cdn | 1 comment »

The last time I worked on a big project was 2012, when I completed my Daughter’s bunk bed. It’s made from curly maple and has a built in bookcase. Since then I took a bit of a woodworking break, did some home renovations and a bit of running and cycling. A couple of months ago I decided it was time to get back into woodworking. I built a couple of small projects, a doorbell cover, a cribbage board and a few other small things, but that was just warming up to get ready for a ...

End assembly joints are drawbored and pegged with 3/8” walnut pegs. I use this pounding block to set the walnut buttons to the right depth. The buttons conceal slotted screw holes that attach the breadboard ends. Next up is fitting the keyed tenons that connect the two end assemblies.

Arts and Crafts 6 Drawer Dresser #6: Web Frames

01-02-2013 08:53 PM by pintodeluxe | 1 comment »

It is now time to build the web frames that function as drawer dividers. The web frames are notched around the legs, and I decided to cut the notches with a dado blade. Here is my setup at the tablesaw with sacrificial fences on both the tablesaw and miter gauge. The result was nice crisp corners on the notches. This will be a visible joint at the front of the dresser. A bandsaw could also accomplish the task, but not quite as easily as a dado blade. After cutting pieces to ...

Wood Magazine Display Case #7: Getting it finished

01-04-2009 11:29 PM by depictureboy | 0 comments »

Well the finishing is coming along nicely, I forgot I needed to do the door. So the case has 3 coats and now the back of the door has 1. Got my side of the garage cleaned up so that I can move the door over to my side and the SO can get her car in the garage again. I still have to order the glass and mirror. Gonna give lowe’s custom order a try as well as a place in dagsboro near Bodies…we’ll see how it goes.
