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

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

Here’s my interpretation of Gustav Stickley’s No. 603 tabouret. This little round table works great in almost any decor. 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. There is a multi-part video series for this project (Part 1 was released 12/7/08, the rest of the videos will be...

Stickley Dining Table no. 622 #4: The Inspector! Plus World's Most Boring Woodworking Video

07-20-2008 06:13 PM by gizmodyne | 14 comments »

Which Wax?I bought a new kind of wax by Howards based on a recommendation from a friend. It is called Walnut. I compared it to the Briwax (Dark Brown) which I have have used previously. The Briwax is much darker. The Howards smells like citrus and claims to provide u.v. protection. It does seem a little more gritty, but applies smoothly. Here is a shot with one base assembly (right) finished with the wax. The other is not (left) Booooooooooring.After finishing the base and the under...

Stickley Dining Table no. 622 #3: Finish: Fuming, Waiting, and Shellac

07-16-2008 04:42 AM by gizmodyne | 15 comments »

After about one week of sanding. It took forever! I will be attaching the top with countersunk lag screws. The holes are over sized to handle movement. The screws will only bite into the top. I put the base together to test it. I built a large tent this time from plywood strips and extra bender board left over from the garden. Here is a shot of the table going into the tent. Suited up for ammonia. Here are the test pieces. Left to Right: After four hours with no finish, ...

Stickley Dining Table no. 622 #2: Sketchup Animations, Plans, and Erasing the Past...

Plans I geared up today to finish the table that was started three years ago. I began by reviewing all of the original plans. Starting with the book “The Furniture of Gustav Stickley” by Joseph J. Bavaro & Thomas L. Mossman. This book is a great Stickley starter book for furniture making. I modified the original table by making it shorter in length. My old style drawings…..I also wanted to try a few new things in SketchUp that I had learned over at the Fine Woodw...

Little Journey's #2: Fuming!

06-08-2008 05:36 AM by gizmodyne | 8 comments »

I had a little more handwork to do on the Little Journey’s Bookstand. I fiddled with the tusks a bit. I originally sanded the piece to 400 but decided to sand to 220 this time. The loose tenons/tusks took forever to sand and detail. Fuming Time I have always wanted to try this. Two years ago I had a student whose dad owned a blueprint shop. He gave me a large bottle of super strength ammonia. I had bought an ammonia respirator in preparation for the job. I build a simple te...

Nightstand Progress #2: Almost Done.

01-01-2008 02:45 AM by gizmodyne | 10 comments »

Sunlight Last week I sanded nightstand #1. I had scuffed it up badly storing it and had to resand a large portion of the outside. I used pocket screws to attach the top. Since I sanded the project, I needed to expose it to sunlight to even out the color, so outside it went. It was nice today, over 70 degrees in the sun.Sunshine..U.V.—- Second UpThe second nightstand only needed detailing on the drawers. I went over them yesterday with 220 and then cheese-clothed them. The F...

Stickley "Done Darkly" #2: Down to finishing...

08-10-2007 09:38 PM by schroeder | 6 comments »

We have glued the breadboard, fitted it with Mountain Mahogany caps, and sanded…and sanded….and SANDED! (dark wood – lotsa sanding) This is with the third coat of sealer – now six coats of poly and we have to think about moving it (man its heavy!). Worth the effort thought to make such wild grain in the table. I’ll post once more when we have the final coat and put together in about ten days.Thanks!
