Some interesting things from around the web

A Claro Walnut Sideboard – Dan Mosheim runs Dorset Custom Furniture and his team of craftsmen just finished a particularly interesting sideboard. I have to admit that when I saw this project about mid-construction, I was not sure how the finished piece would look; but it turned out extra good. The project combines wood and steel and a lot of small burl walnut veneer – check it out.

The Hobbit Cupboard Completed – I am drawn to medieval-style furniture and carving, and while watching the Lord of the Rings movie series, I often found myself looking at the furniture and architecture. So it is no wonder that I really like Mike Peckovich’s new cupboard. See the cupboard during construction here.

Writing Desk Building Process by Doucette and Wolfe Furniture Makers – D&WFM usually produce two types of videos: one of their finished project, and a second which shows the construction process. It is my opinion that the later type of video is the better because I can see all the hand tool work, which is fascinating. They must be masters at sharpening and plane set-up. Good video and speaking of video, they seem to be expanding their video production techniques in this one.

Hand Tool Woodworking Project – some woodworking humor from Bob Lang (I suppose this isn’t humorous if your woodworking actually includes steps like those Bob mentions).

What I have been up to
I have a woodworking project underway; a little garden planter. I am using a Sawtooth Ideas plan as a guide. The idea is to utilize all of the resources which come with a Sawtooth Ideas woodworking plan, and see how it impacts my building process.

My current project

That is cypress you see in the photo. This is the first rough sawn material I have used in a loooong time, so stock preparation has been a big part of this project and has been fun. There is 1 1/8 inch thick stock along with 1 inch, 7/8, 3/4 and 3/8 inch thick, all in one small project. I’ll have a blog post about the full project in the next week or so.
