Re: Mission Bedroom Furniture

One of the pair of tables is done. I just have to put in the drawer and top, plus hardware on the other one. We are painting the bedroom, so it will be a bit before I can install them. Now, if I have...

Re: Mission Bedroom Furniture

My hardware came. Looks pretty good, about what was expected for the price point. Anyway, finishing continues. Here's a couple pics of the door pulls. This door has one top coat of Osmo over the oil...

Re: Mission Bedroom Furniture

Several reasons. I'm using a blend of sipo, sapele, and sapele veneer, so it is hoped that the stain will bring the hue and value together somewhat. also, I generally think that the mahoganies,...

Re: Mission Bedroom Furniture

Finished the tops, and spent nearly 2 days sanding everything. I must have forgotten how much time finish prep takes.

Re: Mission Bedroom Furniture

You need some kind of photo editing app that allows you to size/optimize the images. I use photoshop which admittedly is an expensive proposition, especially now that Adobe wants you to lease the...

Re: Mission Bedroom Furniture

Yep, both sides, but not top and bottom. That's a fairly typical solution to the hinge at leg problem. You'll see that detail on many Mission pieces with doors inset to the legs.
Thanks!

Re: Mission Bedroom Furniture

Hey Mark,
Take a pic of your layout and start a thread. I'm not sure I understand your dilemma. There's always a way to do something.


In the meanwhile, I've got the doors swinging and trimmed...

Re: Model Boat Building

The centerboard turned out to be relatively easy to shape, and I worked a nice foil on it. Not as sharp a trailing edge as in real life, but not as fragile either, and not bad for a 90 year old...

Re: Model Boat Building

I'm a bit behind in my posts. This is from last week. I went ahead and fitted the floorboards, before working on the centerboard. This will give me a chance to get them painted before installing....

Re: Mission Bedroom Furniture

Thanks for the comments, gents. I worked in the shop again yesterday, and brought out the pair of tables to start work on doors and drawer fronts. The glue-ups were pretty good, the second being a...

Re: Model Boat Building

Sand-paint, sand-paint, sand-paint. Itís as time consuming as a big boat. But I got the interior, sans floorboards all done. I have
2 coats of gesso primer inside, leaving or sanding bare the...

Re: Mission Bedroom Furniture

I made it into the shop yesterday. We are still shut down, but Eric is working on the CNC by himself on some small projects for shipping. We have about 300K worth of jobs just sitting there doing...

Re: Model Boat Building

I had to take a couple of days away from the model to work in the garden while we had a weather window, but the roses are all tied up, and the grass is cut. I got the centerboard trunk completed,...

Re: Model Boat Building

A quick post this afternoon. The frames and floors are in, except in way of the centerboard trunk. Those floors will butt the bed logs, so I wanted the trunk in place first. There will be two sets...

Re: Model Boat Building

I had a bit of work to get the planking at the sheer cut down and fair with the sheer clamp, and with the correct bevel. My usual procedure is to make a master deck crown template, and use that...

Re: Model Boat Building

Flipping the model is a bit less of a project than rolling a full size boat upright. Before pulling it off of the jig, I fitted a pair of cradles to set the boat into, which will get screwed down...

Re: Model Boat Building

We are primed, and the waterline marked. First pic below shows 1 coat, before sanding. I added more filler in places after this coat.

Re: Model Boat Building

We are all planked up. That was a lot of work, for a relatively simple boat. I believe that I could build a full size boat in about the same amount of time. Same number of parts, anyway. There are...

Re: Model Boat Building

Skeg, foregripe, and stems are fitted and glued on. That was a bit of a chore, when Iím anxious to get planked up, but its done.

Re: Model Boat Building

Got the side planks glued on today. This is a two plank per side boat, being low of freeboard, like all traditional sharpies, and from a time where wide, flitch sawn boards were available. I did...

Re: Model Boat Building

I might have mentioned before that my chine and sheer clamps are a little ďfloatyĒ in their notches, which makes it frustrating for fairing. I suppose I could have laminated those parts from 2,...

Re: Model Boat Building

I had some bizness to attend to over the last couple of days, so I made only a little progress on the model. One thing I did was join a ship model forum, and through that was contacted by a modeler...
