  1. quick table

    From the album coffee table

  2. Live edge coffee table

    From the album coffee table

    Live edge American cherry coffee table. Top measures 50" long and 24" wide and stands 21" tall. Danish oil and 2 coats of wipe on poly to top surface for added protection. Legs are made from the cutoffs from canting some of the logs. I try to use as much of the tree as I can for conservation and to add some interest in my work. The legs are the corner blocks for the skirt and can not be removed and , I may add a lower shelf after I talk to the person it is being made for.
  3. 3 new tables

    2 small lap top tables or end tables I made for a close friend that has brought me a lot or rough sawn cherry. They are solid cherry with 1/4 sawn cherry center panels. Tungoil oil finish the tops also have 2 coats of wipe on poly for added protection. The small kitchen table is made of live edge cherry. The top is only 48 inches long and is 25 1/2 inches at its widest point and 30 inches tall. Again tungoil followed by 2 coats of wipe on poly. Took a bit of looking through my stock to find the right looking pcs for the leg shape I wanted.
  4. We have a travel trailer (19') that has one of those dinette tables that folds down to form a bed. Well, the mfr made the table just a bit undersized (or the seats a bit too far apart). and it only took a couple of times of sitting on the bed when the table was not perfectly set to mung up the edges of the particle board with laminate top. So I make one a bit closer to the right size. Got some cherry plywood at a local lumberyard (first time there, nice place on a farm (sheep and a pony shared one of the buildings). The big challenge was the edging. I didn't have any T-molding that would work, and I wanted something a bit nicer. Decided not to use laminate (e.g., Formica). So I settled on some shop-cut veneer. Decided needed 1/16" to make the 4 curved corners, and then double them up to make a 1/8" edge band. Table is about 27" x 35" So I worked my way around the top, using two pieces. I don't have 16 Bandy Clamps, so Improvise. Straight edges get clamped with a caul, the bends get stretchy packing tape to pull them tight and into position. Add clamps as I went. Had dinner while first round set up. Second round offsetting the joints after dinner. Spare the clamps, spoil the job. Hope it works. Green tape is masking tape to keep from glue splotching. If all goes well, I'll trim the edges, sand all over and put on a coat of BLO Sunday.
  5. 15 minute box

    I needed a small box to hold my Breathe-Right strips that I wear at night, since they changed the box not to come apart in the middle any more. Grabbed some scrap wood waiting for the right project (cherry). Cut some miters, grooved along the bottom edge, bottom board with tongues all around, glue it up, had dinner, sanded, and sprayed on two coats of aerosol shellac between TV shows. About 2" tall. I used a favorite trick technique to glue up the box. Get some packing tape and lay it sticky side up next to the table saw fence. Lay down the pieces in order, as tight as you can get them and flush to the fence. Add some Titebond No-Drip, No-Run glue to the joints, rolled it up, checked for square.
  6. Simple little candy box?

    Seems there is a second project tied in with that desk project....A friend of the Pastor has requested a Candy box like the one Pastor has....that I built a while back, soooo Have a 7/16" x 6" board of either Cherry or maple... Had to get five pieces out of this one board...Front and Back, two Ends, and a piece for the lid.. used the old Langdon.. Got my Cardio for the day.....five parts, cut to size.. Used a mortise chisel to lay out the finger spacing... Now,I could do all them little cuts with a handsaw.....NOT. Started to use the bandsaw..heard a strange banging going on inside it.. Lower wheel had a "blow-out" Saw still runs nicely enough without it, and quieter, too. Got the cuts made, time to do a bit of chisel work.. Got out a few tools...the mortise chisel was put away, though... As this old Buck Brothers 1/4" Firmer chisel needed a work out. Just like on dovetails, I chop halfway from one face, flip it over, and complete the chop. Trying to save my bench's top, I clamped a pine scrap under things. Got the fingers done on the front and back parts, need to do the ends....ran out of Mountain Dew IN the shop...BREAKTIME! Maybe later, I can get back to work? Box will be delivered a week from this Sunday, hidden inside the desk. Might be able to get this done be then? Stay tuned,,,here we go again...
  7. Blanket Chest

    After about 3 months of off and on work I finally completed the blanket chest I've been working on. This is definitely my most challenging project to dare and it required to try many new techniques. Some of the firsts included breadboard ends, hand-cut half-blind dovetails, and a dovetailed case. This took me quite awhile and I made several mistakes but it feels good to get it done!!

  10. Next Project?

    OK, rehabs are done for now.....have a small stack of thin Poplar boards... Hiding in a corner for a reason? Mainly 1/2" thick 1x8s and 1x10s,with a couple 4/4 slabs thrown in. Why are they hiding? Because there is this stack of Cherry.. Lots of 4/4 x 6 and 4/4 x 8......Some of them are 6/4 pieces.. Some of the shorter stuff is 14"+ wide Single Brain Cell Sketch Up will be working overtime.....on this stash from Charles Neil at the Shindig' scrap pile. Might take a while..stay tuned for updates...
  11. Platter

    This is a platter from cherry crotch working on for DIL birthday. Had to show both sides with the flame. Only 2 coats Watco on now.
  12. Large Hamper Holder

    I need some advice. I have some rough sawn cherry in the shop. I have a request from the better half to construct a housing for the hampers. Basically a case with feet and two doors that open then a drawer with full extension slides. The bedroom is a traditional cherry veneer over partical board. What do I need to consider if I make the case out of edge joined solid Cherry? The expansion will be across the depth of the cabinet. How would you keep it from breaking the face frame apart? The back will be rabbeted for a 1/8" plywood which will flex. All my previous furniture was made from plywood with oak veneer or maple or cherry or walnut. I am very concerned that the case sides bottom and top may destroy itself if not designed properly. Should I keep the cherry for the face frame and go buy 3/4" ply with cherry veneer for the box? See the latest wood magazine's traditional ice box design then modify for size and cherry with two plan doors.

  14. New Lebanon Shaker Rocer

    From the album Shaker Furniture

    A great project, I highly recommend anyone to build these chairs, suitable for most skill levels. The weaving in this seat was considerably more challenging than the square stools I weaved. The trapezoidal shape of the seat created some interesting challenges, but I got through them.
  15. Shaker Rocker

    From the album Shaker Furniture

    I love the patina this chair gained during the finishing, the cherry just got deeper, richer and thick. I love the tone.
  16. New Lebanon Shaker Rocker

    From the album Shaker Furniture

    This morning I put the final coat of General Finishes Gel Topcoat on our chair, it should be ready to weave the seat tomorrow, I hope!
  17. Kind of a fun project

    I've been wanting to one of these for a couple years, ever since a youtube author named Peter Brown did one. It's a zoetrope, which is an old fashioned animation player. Hope to have a video up on it in the next couple of days. Steve
  18. Same ol' same ol'

    Latest batch of honey dipper lids. I have about 40 in process but I finish them in batches of 20. No engraving on these, customer wants about half of them engraved and half not, need to have 120 of them by the middle of June. Mostly maple, cherry, and walnut, although there are some white oak and hickory ones as well. Steve
  19. Fitting Rockers to Slots

    From the album Shaker Furniture

    I used my new Iwasaki 10mm wide file to get the sides and the bottoms just right for the final fitting of the rockers. These files are really really nice. They really remove the material very quickly, and leave a very fine finish. I bought this one at http://www.thebestthings.com/newtools/iwasaki_floats.htm
  20. Rocker Slots

    From the album Shaker Furniture

    I pre-drilled a hole below the bottom of the legs, and between the saw cut lines, so all I had to do was chop out a little at the top and the rest just fell out, leaving a rough bottom, but workable with a file till it became flat for the rocker to fit into.
  21. Shaker Rocker Arm Wedge Tenon

    From the album Shaker Furniture

    I like the really slather the glue on with these, then I hammered home the walnut wedge to secure the front leg tenon to the arm.
  22. Wedge Tenon Rocker Arm

    From the album Shaker Furniture

    While shaping the tenon down to fit in the through mortise at the arm of the rocker, I shaped it down a tad to small, but fortunately I was going to fit the joint with a wedge tenon anyway, so that alone took up the gap and and made it right.
  23. Shaping the Arm Narrow

    From the album Shaker Furniture

    Still working on the arm narrow, it's almost there, but not quite, it's all by eye, whatever looks pleasing, is when I'll stop.
  24. Shaping the Arm Narrow

    From the album Shaker Furniture

    After I was satisfied with the tenon fit, I shaped more of the arm at the tenon area.
  25. Fitting Arm Tenon to Rear Chair Leg

    From the album Shaker Furniture

    I finally got a decent fit for the arm tenon.
