In Between...

Furnished content.

In Between...In between super high quality, museum caliber, uber-fine projects, I like to do one or two shop projects. :) Here's a simple sandpaper organizer with lots of parts. I picked up the tip of adhering sandpaper to (free) paint stirrers to create simple but effective sandpaper files. I also like the use of beveled slats for hanging storage. This is how I hang cabinets. In this project I used 1/2” ply (versus 3/4”) for the hangers and it seems to work fine. I also made a gluing/nailing jig-fixture to make assembly of the trays easier.

Sapele Table

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Sapele TableThis is an extending dining table I completed for a client who gave me creative license on design. The top is QS Sapele (1/16 veneer) with a maple border with black lacquer.It was a bit tricky to determine how to do the black border. I had planned to do a pre-cat lacquer finish for its durability. I had read that you could paint using a flat latex and then lacquer over that. But the tech folks at Sherwin Williams highly discouraged this. So I went with the black lacquer.Then – do you finish the border and then assemble? If so, you risk gaping and sanding issues. Or do you assemble and sand, and then tape off? This was scary to do, but I opted to tape off. The Frog Tape worked fabulously.Finally, note the stretcher is a double arch. It's a nice oriental aesthetic but also a pretty stable structural element. Some process photos below…Any and all comments or critique are welcome!First image is a creative way to do my large mortise for the trestle base.Next is the monster trestle mortise and tenon.Substructure to support the Osborne extension slides (half lap with shoulders:Stretcher bent lamination:Veneer vacuum and veneer waterfall (on substrate):Border joint and black lacquer after taping:

Small bench

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Small benchThis is another reproduction (i.e. blatant copy) of an LJ project I saw when poking around. Thanks to anthm27 for the inspiration as well as the extra pics, sketch and advice he was so kind to give.Bench is made of white oak with a couple of walnut stripes. Mortise and tenons everywhere except the long bottom rail which uses dowels. Finished with poly.The legs at either end are at a 6 degree angle to each other, and the two leg assemblies tilt towards each other by the same ….so there are a lot of angles to work with, something I had not done before. An interesting challenge for me.Thanks for looking.
