  1. I started the build of the mission style chest-of-drawers with QSWO for the primary and poplar for the secondary wood. The drawers will rest on under-mount soft closed drawer slides. My wife wanted 3 drawers behind the door. The door will have the same motif as the nightstand and the bed. I am not certain if the motif will be applied on the lower drawers. I hope to finish the corbels and route the mortises, into the four legs, for the twin tenons next week. The drawer heights are (4) 6", (1) 7", and (1) 8". Danl I use my shop-made-mortising jig to route the mortises into the legs for the needed mortises for the sides. I use my shop-made tenoning jig to saw the tenon cheeks. Fits together the 1st dry fit as planned. The side panels were made from ½” book matched, solid wood. Ripped sawn from 5/4 bd. The panels have a recess to allow for a 1/16" gap. Thanks for looking. Danl
  2. This will likely be the final post for the mission style bed but hopefully more posts will follow for the mission style chest-of-drawers; all apart of the mission style bedroom set. The bed was put into the spare bedroom yesterday alongside the mission style nightstand. Thanks for looking. Danl Posting log for the Mission style Bedroom set journey 1.

  3. A few more progress pics of the Mission style bed build. Danl I do not have a pic of the side-rail cleat before glue-up to the side rail. This is a pic of the final assembly of the side rail with the cleat being attached. I made a simple jig to help make the cleat dove-tail. The dove-tail will accept the bed slats. The cleat is being held in my Moxon vise. I removed most of the material with the table saw and then used a router with a trim bit. The temporary tenons in the side of the rails will aid with the spray finishing. The rail slats are made from poplar wood. Sample board showing the progression of the finishing process. Raw QSWO, one coat of Transtint medium brown in DA, then sprayed with 1-1/2# seal coat, then one coat of General Finishes Antique Walnut, then sprayed with 1-1/2# seal coat, then three oats of Sherwin Williams Sher-wood Kem Aqua plus (WB lacquer). I spray in my garage and the weather is hot. Cure time is in the kitchen. Now time to assemble the footboard. The first dry-run took 1 hour by myself. My wife and I were able to get the spindles glued in 10 min and final glue-up in 1/2 hour. I used Titebond hide glue for the adhesive. The two pine strips aided in holding the spindles in location while flipping the top rail and strips 90-deg and then positioning the lower rail. The footboard had 68 joints. The fit-up of the spindles to the rails were fairly tight before adding the glue. The pine strip closes to the lower rail was made 1/64"-1/32" thinner than the gap measurement to aid in the assembly. All of the spindle were numbered and had a reference mark to assure clocking orientation to get the "pretty side" on the correct side. Numerous glue aids were made. Most were painted red. The next day I glued the headboard assembly. It is similar to the footboard except with the addition of a 3rd rail and longer legs. To aid in the assy, I made the tenons on the lower rail 1/4" shorter than the upper and mid rail. I also made the tenons on the middle spindle, or center slat, 1/4" longer, top and bottom, than the other spindles for both the footboard and headboard. Now time to add felt pads to the bottom of all the legs. I still have to spray finish to the top cap of the footboard and headboard, spray finish to the side rails, and spray shellac on the bed slats. All of this before final assembly. I did trial install the side rails to the footboard and headboard. Pics will be forthcoming. Thanks for looking. Danl
  4. A few more progress pics of the Mission style bed build. Danl Qty (60) 7/8" x 7/8" spindles with 1/2" x 5/8" x 5/8" tenons, both ends. 1/8" x 1/8" chamfers routered on the bottoms of the legs. Headboard dry-fitted. The 1st time I tried the dry-fit it took 1 hr. This time it took 10 min. It should be adequate time with the Titebond hide glue. Headboard, footboard and side-rails dry fitted with the slip tenon also not glued yet. Epoxied the weld nut to the bottom of the slip tenon Glued the slip tenon into the mortise and drill hole for peg (belt and suspender approach). The peg will be hidden when the headboard and footboards are assembled. Used the cut-off to help make a gluing caul. I attached cork the side that touches the corbel. The corbel is splined to the leg. Getting ready to apply finish. I will be finishing most parts separately. The finish schedule is (1) coat dye, seal coat, (1) coat stain, seal coat, and then 2-3 coats of WB lacquer. Thanks for looking. Danl
  5. A few more progress pics of the Mission style bed build. Danl I added a profile to the footboard lower rail, similar to the design feature on the night stand. Clamped a router jig to the side-rail for the 5/8" x 4-1/2" x 7/8" deep mortise which goes into the end of the side rail. Using a router guide bushing and a spiral 1/2" up-cut router bit. Clamped the router jig for the mounting hardware access 'T-slot Clamped the router jig to router the mortice for the T-slot cover plate. Added identification marking to the side-rail. Added the identification markings to the legs. I added masking tap to the TS fence to allow me to remove 0.004" from the slip tenon material to allow for a nice fit. Temporary installed the slip tenons into their respect leg mortice after holes were drilled for the attachment bolt and hidden encapsulated nut. Thanks for looking. Danl
  6. Early March I shared with you a prototype of a leg assembly for a Mission style bed. Much progress has been made. The design for the bed intentionally has many of the same dimensions between the headboard and the footboard. I used a router to make all my mortises. The 1/2” leg-to-headboard and footboard rail mortises were made with the aid of my mortising jig and the 5/8”and 1-1/4” mortises required new jigs to allow me to use a router bushing. I used the mortising jig clamping surface and clamps to hold the legs when the mortises were routed. . When I sawed the HB & FB rail checks, I used my TS tenoning jig. The boards cleared the ceiling by ½.” More pics to show in the next post. Danl
  7. I am making a Mission style bed, from quartered sawn white oak, for my wife. The design was inspired by Tom McLaughlin, Jeremy Zietz, Kevin Rodel, Jeff Miller, Fine Woodworking magazine, WOOD magazine, and Woodsmith magazine. I hope it is not a lesson in making expensive scrap. I finished the matching nightstand a few months back. You can see it here. This design allows for a queen size box spring and mattress and will have the same veneer and mother-of-pearl inlay as the nightstand. To help me with the joinery, I made a full-size prototype of one leg and its interfaces. The design uses grade-8 bolts and weld nuts to attach the side-rails to the legs. I incorporated concentric mortises and a slip tenon so the bolts would not be visible from the front. The tenon will be glued into the leg. The side-rail to leg appears to be a little complicated, but with a few shop made jigs it all should fit together. The leg double mortise requires three jigs. The 1st jig is used to route the 5/8” mortise for the slip tenon. The 2nd small indexing jig positions into the 5/8” mortise and then the 3rd jig is positioned over top the small jig. The 3nd jig is clamped secure and then the 2nd jig is removed. The 3rd jig is used to route the 1-1/4” mortise, which will accept the side-rail. The bolt & washer T-slot mortise and the cover plate mortise are routed using separate jigs. These two jig are located about the rail center line and the T-slot jig has a locator on the back side to assure the longitudinal position. The mortises routed in the end of the side-rails uses the 1st jig with a ½” thick shim. I plan to use heavy duty furniture levelers in the bottom of each leg to assist with any unevenness in the bedroom floor. Handling and correctly positioning the long and heavy lumber will be a challenge for me in my small basement shop. Thanks for looking. Danl
  8. I thought I would share a few progress pics. Just need to add glue and a few more hundred items to complete. Thanks for looking. Danl This is a sample for the final finish schedule. I will be using a modified Jeff Jewitt receipt. Stain with TransTint Medium Brown diluted at 1 oz dye to 1 qt. water Apply one coat Zinssar Bulls eye sanding sealer. Let dry and scuff sand with 320 grit Apply General Finishes Antique Walnut Gel Stain. Wipe clean and let dry overnight. Apply 2 or 3 coats Sherwin Williams Kem Aqua Clear (WB lacquer) Top of the night stand after it was drum sanded. Still in rough dimn. Just a few rails with single and double tenons. I have (52) mortises and tenons. Twelve are double tenons. Floor subassembly - dry fit Side subassembly Side subassembly looking inside/outside Door subassembly
