    scaled down version of an arts and crafts style tabouret
  2. Stickley Tabouret

    I built this tabouret based on the plans from Robert Lang's "Shop Drawings for Craftsman Furniture. It's a reproduction of the StickleyNumber 603 Tabouret. The entire project was completed using only hand tools with the exception of the mortises. I like being a galoot, but I'm not crazy...
  3. A couple of tabourets

    I got these plans from popular woodworking (Chris schwarz). Fun/easy project. One is made from some old cherry boards. The other is white oak. I tried to follow bob langs method for obtaining a fumed look...
  4. Plant Stand / Tabouret

    The dimensions for this projects came from "Shop Drawings for Craftsman Furniture". Bottom stretchers are M&T into the legs. There are top stretchers (not visible in photos) that are dovetailed into the tops of the legs. It is constructed from QSWO. The finish was an aniline dye, and then...
  5. Poplar arts and crafts tabouret

    This was my first arts and crafts project. We sold our living room furniture so I am charged with building it all. I bought a lot of rough sawn poplar to learn on. I used the plans from Robert Lang's book. The reviews are mixed on the book but the drawings give you 95% of what you need. If you...
  6. A Little Tear

    This is a hexagonal Tabouret that I designed to sit next to my arm chair. It's made of Beech, an under appreciated and under utilized, domestic species. The marquetry is a 1,2,4 basket weave pattern with a tear in it and bees coming through onto the surface. I'm extremely pleased with...
  7. Mission Side Table and Coffee Table

    A pair of quartersawn white oak mission style tables for the living room. The design is a modified Stickley Harvey Ellis. I changed the sizes slightly to better fit our space, and the inlays were replaced with the much simpler mortise pattern. I added the thru tenons to the cross braces to...
  8. Rustic Side Table and Time Lapse Video for Summers Woodworking Contest 2014

    Hi Lumber Jocks and Janes, I made this side table out of half of an old reclaimed 2×4 for Summers Woodworking Contest 2014. I wanted a bolted together look with no apron because I thought it would be an interesting contrast between fragility and strength. The other contrast effect I was going...
  9. Stickley #603 Tabouret

    I have always liked the style of these little Stickley side tables, and I finally had a chance to build a pair. For small, simple-looking tables they do have some nice joinery challenges. Half laps, through tenons, and lapped dovetails add to the fun. Any home has room for these tabouret...
  10. Gustav Stickley No. 603 Tabouret

    I built this tabouret in 2005 during my spare time in my woodworking table class. The main table was the Greene and Greene Style Coffee table which we built mostly step by step. I work pretty fast so I had a lot of down time. I found the drawings for this table in the Robert Lange book: Shop...
  11. Limbert Tabouret

    Limbert Tabourette from QSRO. Finished with TransTint Honey Amber dye , Minwax Early America stain, and lacquer. The build was very straight forward using template routing. In the second photo the table is setting next to an original 1907 Gustav Stickley chair.
  12. Tabouret Foot Stool

    I recently completed work on a tabouret foot stool. I based the design on the old Popular Mechanics book "Mission Furniture: How to make it". You can find the Tabouret section at (http://chestofbooks.com/crafts/popular-mechanics/Mission-Furniture/How-To-Make-A-Tabouret.html). I altered the...
  13. Woodworking Skill Share
    I recently bought two small sticks of this beautiful Central American wood locally. They were both coated in wax when I got them. I thought that was a bit strange, so I asked the salesman why. He said the wood will get darker when exposed to the air. Does anyone know how long this darkening...
  14. Finishing
    I just finished a small project, a box. and I am trying danish oil for the first time. Am I doing this correctly? The instructions say to apply a liberal coat and let it soak in for 30 minuets. Then apply a second coat, wait 15 minuets and wipe off the excess. Urethane after 72 hours. Is this...

    Visiting Sam Maloof's House ... updated 12/28/07 I received tickets to the tour the Sam Maloof foundation from my in-laws for Christmas, and we headed out for the tour today. The house and workshop are located in Alta Loma, California about 35 minutes from my house. You can't take photos...

    Templates 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...

    Half Lap and Lapped Dovetail Joints This little Stickley table has fascinated me for years, but it was never the top project on my list. I think anyone interested in building arts and crafts furniture should build these two projetcs: a Morris chair, and this little tabouret table. That way...
