Arts & Crafts Dining Room Set #4: Change of Plans?

08-09-2009 07:59 AM by CaptainSkully | 3 comments »

Thanks in large part to WhatTheChuck, I’m giving serious thought to changing the design of the underbody of the table. With all due respect to Schroeder's table, which I prefer the looks of in many ways, I think the lack of a footrest underneath is a good thing, and the spindles underneath are magnificent, yet kind of a waste of time, energy, effort, and lumber as they’ll be hidden by chairs. I think the trestle-style design might be more pragmatic, and still embody the simplici...

Limbert Lamp Table - Stickley #240 #3: Jigs & Dry Fit

08-01-2009 05:38 AM by CaptainSkully | 2 comments »

Following TreeFrog as closely as possible, I cut out the blanks for the sides. I cheated a tad and used the wedges from the prototype to establish the tapers on the sides. One one side, I used one wedge, on the second side, I had to use both to compensate for the previous taper. These were cut with the blade at 90 degrees to the table saw to give me a point of reference when I’m cutting the miters. I created the jigs to hold the sides stable while I cut them at a 44 degree mit...

Limbert Lamp Table - Stickley #240 #2: Glue Ups

07-31-2009 06:06 PM by CaptainSkully | 1 comment »

Yesterday, I milled up four long, rough boards to 3/4”. The Robert Lang book uses thicker stock, but I had to get rid of the saw marks. I chopped them up a bit oversized to give me some leeway during the glue up. I arranged the boards for defects and grain to give me the best four sides out. I glued up one panel every two hours last night during dinner and a movie. This morning they’re all ready for the band saw. One thing I’ve noticed is that there seems to be a lot o...

Arts & Crafts Dining Room Set #2: Template Adjustment

07-15-2009 06:25 AM by CaptainSkully | 1 comment »

So, we decided that 72” was a bit overpowering. I yanked the pseudo-top out into the garage and cut a foot off, and then to preserve the Golden Ratio (we just watched a documentary about the Parthenon), cut the width down to 37”. This size is much better, and is more amenable to placing a Limbert Lamp Table or sideboard in the dining area. It seats six comfortably instead of eight, but we’d rather setup another table or TV trays instead of having a monolithic table 24/7. ...

Limbert Lamp Table - Stickley #240 #1: Templates

07-15-2009 03:43 AM by CaptainSkully | 2 comments »

So, between TreeFrogFurniture.BlogSpot.com and Robert Lang’s book “More Shop Drawings for Craftsman Furniture”, I decided that the corner of our dining room could stand an accent table. TreeFrog has built two different styles, so I “borrowed” the plans for the one I liked (he posted them online) and made my first template. I’m going to wait to make the interior template until I have the shell complete. The angles make things a bit messy. Like Tre...

Arts and Crafts Style Panel Bed #2: Making the posts - through mortises made easy

06-24-2009 03:08 AM by John Nixon | 7 comments »

The 4th and 5th installment in the Arts and Crafts Panel Bed video series has been released! If you are intimidated by the through mortise and tenon joint, you should check out the latest videos. I’ll show you a method to make perfectly sized and spaced mortises without a mortising machine or router. For measured drawings and in-process pictures, you can visit the project page at Eagle Lake Woodworking:http://www.eaglelakewoodworking.com/post/Arts-and-Crafts-Bed-Stickley-Panel-Be...

Arts and Crafts Style Panel Bed #1: Panels, Rails & Stiles for the Frame and Panel Construction

06-04-2009 02:28 AM by John Nixon | 8 comments »

I’m working on building an Arts and Crafts style Panel bed. The bed is inspired by the Stickley Bed pictured below. There’s three videos in the series so far, and I hope to have more out soon. The quartersawn white oak grain on this wood I have looks really good in person, and I’m excited to see the bed come together. For measured drawings and in-process pictures, you can visit the project page at Eagle Lake Woodworking:http://www.eaglelakewoodworking.com/post/Arts-and...

Craftsman Dining Room Set - In The Beginning...

04-23-2009 06:39 PM by CaptainSkully | 3 comments »

Due to my ignorance with LJ blogging, the next installment is here. So, I’ve got my girlfriend’s permission to start working on our new dining room set. I’ve done a ton of research, and for me, Schroeder hit the nail right on the head. He’s been extremely helpful with suggestions, suggested reading, and tool purchases to make the process go smoother. I will build his table. I’m still researching the chairs, but the Rodel chair is high in the running. I...

finally getting close to the finishing room ...

04-01-2009 05:33 AM by kordwood | 9 comments »

I’ve been working on a big Stickley designed double bookcase for way too long, but I’m closing in on it now. Finally put the tongue-and-groove back boards on, all the shelves are done (middle shelves are fixed, top and bottom shelves adjustable … it was too tall for me to get a full top to bottom shot, so you can’t see all the shelves in this pic), it’s all glued up and ready for some final sanding. It’s coming out fairly well, if I do say so myself.But it&...
