  1. Shaker Style Vanity (Poplar)

    Well, this has been quite the week for the ol Morris home! I had fully intended on finishing our Walnut Vanity, but we were informed an appraiser was going to come out this Tuesday to value our home for a VA refi. At first I had not thought of it, but it finally struck me, hey, if this guy is coming out to appraise, we should probably have our bathrooms fully functional. While the 1/4 bath downstairs with the Walnut Vanity is fully functional, the kids bathroom upstairs is not, it's still missing a vanity as well. I called the VA appraiser and asked him if the missing vanity would effect the value of our home, he stated maybe not, but the lender would not be too happy to see their investment missing parts of the home. So my wife and spent an hour discussing what she'd like in the kids bathroom, we ho hummed over the HD and Lowes vanity's, too expensive, they ran anywhere from 300 bucks on up, and we are not ready to spend that much right now, school is getting ready to start for our kids in a couple weeks, and we need to get school clothes still. So we talked about what she wanted, she wanted a white cabinet, and she liked the simplicity of shaker that I have been introducing into our home lately. So I told her, we can build a cabinet and paint it white! She loved it. So we got into high gear and I ran out yesterday and grabbed a stack of poplar from the lumber dealer, and came home and drew something up to get approval by my wife. Just a simple shaker cabinet, with the drawer proportions to be worked out still, she is deciding what she is going to put in the drawers. After I drew it up, and got approval from LOML, I started to cutting and joining the poplar boards to make the floor, and sides of the cabinet. I was not too concerned about grain matches etc, the cabinet will be painted on the outside, but I did want some grain symmetry for the floor of the cabinet, as the interior will be natural and varnished. This morning I was able to get the panels glued up and out of the clamps, squared up and cleaned up. They look pretty good. Over this next week, I'll come home from work and put a couple hours a night on the vanity, tomorrow I'll be cutting in the dado's and assembling the floor and sides. I called the appraiser and told him to hold off a week while I get this vanity wrapped up and installed. He agreed. So I have a week to get this wrapped up, painted, and installed, and functioning! Wish me luck!
  2. Curly Maple Shaker Rocker

    Well here we are. Getting ready to cut into a nice 8/4 board of heavy Curly Maple to begin another rocker journey. Tonight I'm laying out parts and cutting. With any luck I'll have some slats in the steamer tonight. This photo does no justice to the figure in this board. I'll keep this topic going with this chair build. Thanks for following along! Legs are cut and squared.
  3. 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.
  4. Shaping the Arm Tenon

    From the album Shaker Furniture

    After I cut the tenons out, I took them from square to round in just few minutes, testing the fit as I went.
  5. Shaker Rocker and Stool

    From the album Shaker Furniture

    The seat is weaved, and I placed the accompanying stool with it. I am pretty happy how this one turned out. I'll create plenty more, this was just too much fun.
  6. 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!
  7. Shaker Rocking Chair

    From the album Shaker Furniture

    Once I weave the seat into the chair, it will be striking, I am very happy with this project.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. A great website by a great historical conservation.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. Fitting Arm Tenon to Rear Chair Leg

    From the album Shaker Furniture

    I finally got a decent fit for the arm tenon.
  16. Cutting the Arm Tenon

    From the album Shaker Furniture

    I used this beautiful E. Garlick and Son "Lynx Brand" tenon cross cut saw to slice down the tenon to width. At 20 TPI, the cut is very fine. I purchased this saw a year ago on a whim and I am now starting to use it for many things. It's a joy to use.
  17. Shaker Step

    Hey all, I just finished a shaker step for grandkids to use at the bathroom sink, its cherry with danish oil finish. All parts cut and dovetailed with hand tools. thanks for having me in the forum! kind regards, David
  18. Shaker Chair Arms

    From the album Shaker Furniture

    The arm's are shaped and ready for final sanding. After rough shaping the arms with the draw knife and spoke shave, I used a block of wood wrapped in 80 grit sand paper and refined the arms.
  19. Back Slate Mortise Test Fit

    From the album Shaker Furniture

    As I chopped the mortises, I kept testing the fit, I had to chop out the mortises at an angle, so they other side of the bent slat, would meet into the opposite chair post.
  20. Shaping Arms

    From the album Shaker Furniture

    The arms of the New Lebanon Transitional rocker need to be shaped by draw knife and then refined with a combination of chisels and final sanding. I am using my Ebay find, a James Swanson Draw Knife, it's a joy to use.
