  1. From the album: Glenn Davis

    Mortise and Tenon Pegged construction
  2. My wife has /does collect artwork and she is always in need of storage chests. I decided that my next chest would have 12 raised panels, be painted, and made to her specifications(to fit some artwork). I selected poplar wood because it works/planes well and I have a few 100 board feet of it. The construction was a combination of power tools and a finished surface with hand planing of all of the surfaces. The chest is made of solid wood.... nothing plywood. Mortise and tenons were used to join the frame members and then pinned together. A half mortise lock secures the contents. The photos show the parts of the construction from beginning to end.

    Multi shelf two door cherry and hand painted crafts storage cabinet
  4. This started out as a 8" x 8" x 2" piece of poplar. After that, the picture pretty much tell the story. It is intended for use as a fruit bowl, hence the green rim. That, by the way, didn't go as expected. I purchased a green paint pen from Hobby Lobby, intending to hold it against the rim with the lathe on its lowest speed, but the pen was the type that you have to keep depressing the nib on the end to pump the paint to the tip. That, of course, didn't work with the bowl turning, so I would up having to pump some paint to the tip, get it on the rim of the bowl, and actually "draw" it onto the rim, while periodically turning on the lathe to even out the application. It eventually worked OK, but next time I will figure out something different.
  5. On a road trip....stopped at one sale.....Bought a handsaw for a buck-fifty.. Weird handle, ugly paint job....Left handed saw? As this is the "back"....? My son picked up a Fox Fire riding coat..$80 coat for $10.. Got this "Treasure" home, took the handle off, and cleaned the brass.. Fancy medallion? THREE sets of holes? Phoenix, Patented, Trade ( bird) Mark, Warranted. Hardware matched the holes in the handle Left handed saw? Took the plate to the shop....paint stripper was a wire wheel and a belt sander... Had the remove a bow to the plate, and a kink or two.....plate is now straight, just needs the 8ppi teeth sharpened. Put the saw back together, and then outside to "sun" itself... Non-medallion side ( left handed saw ?) Medallion side. 26" 8 point, crosscut saw. Medallion is by Atkins. Plate is known as a skew back. Three finger grip, with the index finger along the side as a pointer. VERY comfy handle. $1.50? Looks better than when it was all painted up....
  6. 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!
  7. About five years ago, or so, while on a rust hunt in Sidney Oh......Spent $5 on a saw, with a metal case.. I fixed the cord, threw out the junk blades, bought a new blade when I finally found the right size and arbor. Not a bad little saw, a little bit lighter than the Sears 7-1/4" all metal one I also have. The Problem? Well, it is the paint job on the outside of the case... Would like to bring this thing back to almost new.....and NOT lose the yellow label part. I can sand and strip the rest off, no problemski...but that label? Case has sat around ever since, looking rather forlorn. I have even used the saw enough that the year old blade is getting a wee bit dull. Ideas on label salvage? I no longer have an "In" with the local JVS, nor their paint shop class. I'm more or less on my own....I think I have the right shade of Rustoleum Green. Might have to see about that BS Yellow colour...
  8. SPOILER ALERT!!- Painted Wood Ahead! Avert Your Eyes If You Are Sensitive To Those Types Of Images!! (Posting this so Allen won't feel so bad about having to use paint.) Finished up the two little jewelry chests, yesterday. Thanks for all of the suggestions about flocking the inside. I guess it turned out OK for my first ever attempt at that sort of thing. The Mom was going to do a "Shabby Chic" finish but changed her mind. She picked the colors and did the painting. These are made from poplar. I bought the foam ring inserts from Amazon (don't forget to sign up for Amazon Smile). The little knobs are from Hobby Lobby. Sides/top are 1/2" thick. Drawers are 1/4" thick. Inserts 1/8" thick with half lap connections- except the top divider which is dado-ed. Found the hinges at Lowe's Mom took over at this point and used an acrylic latex.Then returned them to me to finish the inside. I got the flocking directly from "FlockIt". Fast service. Got it in 2 days. The worst part of the flocking was doing the drawer insert. I was going to do each piece separately but realized the thickness of the adhesive and the flocking material would not permit them to be reassembled. Also, could not find any really tiny brass eye screws, locally, for the chain (Hobby Lobby). Made do with small round head screws (Lowe's). I guess the little girls won't have any trouble telling them apart. Thanks for looking.
