I finished and posted a few pictures on a.b.p.w. of the Walnut Night Stand I
have been working on. I used a magazine picture that the customer provided
and make modifications per her requests. My customer is 94 years old. :~)
Please take a look.
I have to comment here as my newsreader doesn't seem to want post
I think that's beautiful work. You have a nice touch.
I didn't get the whole post, so I may have missed the information as to
who designed the nightstand? How thick are those sides of the carcasse.
How is walnut in that thickness for warping?
My customer, a 94 year old woman that I have known since I was 6, I am now
52, handed me a picture out of a magazine. The stand had a TV and VCR
setting on /in it. She wanted that basic configuration but dressed up a bit
for bed room night table. I completely reddsigned the legs and lower apron
and added the corner details, raised panel appearance on the drawer and top
back edge guard.
3/4" thick. Actually all the Walnut on the piece is 3/4" thick except for
the drawer back and sides which are 1/2" thick. I used a beading bit on the
front edge and front edge side of the legs and cabinet sides to make the
sides appear to be a bit thinner and to add the round bead in the corners.
The legs are 2 pieces of 3/4" glued up to 1.5" thick and squared to 1.5" x
1.5" x 7.75" long. The bottoms of the legs are 3/4"x 3/4". I mortised and
tenoned the union of the legs and aprons.
'~) No problems so far.
Farther down in the post I posted 2 pictures of one a pair of night stands I
built about 4 years ago out of Walnut. I'll repost in a new thread. Those,
are an example of what I consider my best work.
Drat! I didn't get those. Maybe Mr. Delorie will post them later.
I do get images from guys who upload them to places like PhotoBucket
and ImageShack then post the links.
