Image Uploading Suggestions

We appreciate your help in keeping our image gallery orderly and easy for others to research.

Please consider these suggestions while uploading your images.

 

  • Name your images before uploading to our gallery, the generic camera file names just look so messy. "Walnut Desk" looks so much better than "DSC19467je69.jpg". You can also name your images after you upload them to our gallery for your convenience.
  • After uploading your images, please consider adding a description so your viewers know what they are seeing and the wood used, the tools used, or even your inspiration for building the project.
  • Please consider tagging your images so our members and guests will be able to successfully search for your image and related images. Tags can be inserted into the "Tags" field. An example of tags and their names should be related to your project. If your project images are of a Walnut Desk with dovetail joinery, than tag the image with "Walnut", "Desk", "Dovetail" etc.

 

Thank you for your cooperation. :)

  1. New Kitchen Island Updated

    The Boss wanted a new Kitchen Island, as she thought we had out-grown the old one...She wanted a taller, larger, shinier Top.  A better place to store all the baking sheets and pans, and a taller shelf to store her pop bottles under...AND....be able to roll it out of the way.  Once she found a picture of what she wanted, I could start in....took most of the month of June....
     
    Started with a large stash of 1 x 6 boards of Ash....got tired of all the glue ups...middle shelf is 3/4" pine plywood.   She wanted a single WIDE drawer.   1 x 6 Ash for the drawer front, 3/4" pine for the sides, and back of the drawer.  1/4" Luann plywood for the drawer bottom.
     
    4 pages of plans...delivered by Moose &  Squirrel Delivery Service.   Finish is Gunstock stain/ BLO , then a couple coats of poly clear gloss.   Casters were added to the feet after it had been hauled up the shop stairs.

  3. Cherry desk Updated

    My second (and last, I hope) desk in the past 12 months or so. This is a library style with an extra wide keyboard tray to accommodate the full width KB and mouse I use. This one is for the main computer in the house and replaces a humongous roll top desk we bought probably 20+ years ago. It's absolutely too large for the current house and will disassembled, maybe I can salvage some of the wood for re-use. Anyway, with almost all our information being filed electronically, there seems to be little need for a double pedestal desk anymore, so I chose this style. With the exception of the tray bottom, it's solid cherry. They tray is 1/2" cherry ply. The drop down hinges are butler table style, and they had to be exposed slightly on the front. The desk is styled (sort of) to match another piece in the same room.

  6. Shaker Style Table, with drawer Updated

    Made from leftover Ash boards.   Tried to line up the grain in the top, drawer front, sides so they wrap around, legs are tapered on two inside faces.  Keeping with the "Leftovers", the handle was also a leftover.
     
    Top is 3/4"  x 14" x 25" counting bread board ends. Table stands 23" tall.   Drawer used half blind dovetails in the front, and dados for the back.  Stain is called Gunstock, seems to go nicely with the Ash.

  11. Shaker Furniture Updated

    Recently I have taken an interest in building Shaker furnishings, I have always loved it, but I am ready to build it.
    This album will contain all the furniture I will build in the Shaker style.
     
    Virtually any of the items I will be posting in this album are inspired from books written by Kerry Pierce. Mr. Pierce has created a variety of books on the shaker style, the history and culture of the Shaker community, and within the books there are detailed drawings for much of the work the Shakers produced.
    Here is a link to Kerry's site at Kerry Pierce Furniture and here is a link to his books at Kerry Pierce Books in Amazon . I highly recommend the books by Mr. Pierce, they are well made, and well priced as well.
     
    Just one of Kerry's books

     
    Thanks for visiting this album, and thanks for looking!

  21. Simple Bedside Table Updated

    Basically 4 pine boards got turned into a simple, shaker style table...One board was crosscut and glued up into the top.  Two more were cut into four aprons, with the "leftovers being made into corner blocks.  The last board was a scrap 2 x 10, was resawn into four leg blanks, and then tapered on two sides.
    Mortise & Tenon joinery, nothing real fancy.   Golden Oak stain, and Gloss Poly for a finish.

    • Cal, the only one I used any tape on was the three tone thing with a long sharp pointed right straight above the conch shell you ask about..I put the tape over the yellow for I was changing the color I had already but on the large portion and wanted a different color. I don't practice enough with the air brush and especially when using the cheap Michaels or HL water base paints is cheap enough to do much more practice also  you can crank in the spray fan and draw a line. But the smaller lines will show flaws easier..
      Using a set of french curves I traced curved lines on to some clear plastic about 1/16" thick so I could bend it over the rounded things and get better lines that didn't show my shaky puddin and then only spray on every other lines so it would look two toned where the natural wood was one of the colors.. Blow up the picture and you can tell I two toned a few more but still learning for having the air brush in one hand and the piece to be sprayed in the other hand adds to the un even coverage.
        Sanding the pieces, the 1x42" disk-belt sander does about 75% of all the shaping of the pieces...I use two machines, one with a 60 grit and the other with an 80 grit belt. Belts can be changed very quickly if I only used one sander. I do use an oscillating drum sander quite a bit but not as often as the 1/42's. My finish sanding is done with a regular electric sander upside down  on top of the table saw sittin on a thick rubber pad. One hand to hole the sander and the other hand to hold the pieces....180 or 150 grit only.
      Its easier to sand wood that is cupped out so most of what is in this picture is made that way. Sanding cupped in pieces takes maybe 10 times longer to smooth, thats the reason you don't see so many of them.
        Only the two groups of coral was brush painted and I did want them wilder in color.
      Cal the silver gray cupped in critter next to the one you referenced I probably spent ten times longer to end up as smooth...
         Some of the smaller pieces I used a bit that is 1/8" round and made lots of the grooves and was smooth enough I didn't have to do any hand sanding....Its the longer small grooves that a persons hand has to be reshifted to continue that groove is where the quality of a good straight line goes haywire...This is the reason those 2 biggest shells has only drawn lines with the pencil and there I did use a piece of curved plastic for them.
       Go back to where I show the first picture with all the pieces finished but with no color added and a few pieces I changed the shapes completely before I added the colors. The big thing down in the bottom left was completely flat on the bottom side.
    • Just a "Tool box" for small stuff..the kind sitting around in boxes and getting lost...
    • Jess, you sure did Ms Caldwell's picture justice
      As long as you are sharing your painting techniques, how did you do the striped shells like that conch shell at the bottom?  Do you tape it off, or ?
    • That is NICE Steven.  What will it be used for?
    • Man I really love this Steve!!!! I want one! Could be used as a range box too, really cool and hearty. This will last a generation or two, this is one of my favorites you have done, clap clap clap clap!
