Watch how to build a Router Circle Cutting Jig. If you are following my Tenor Guitar series, this jig will be used to cut out the rosette, make the channel to inlay the rosette in the guitar top and cut the soundhole in the guitar top.
In Part 4 see how the electrical components of the sconce are installed as it is lit up for the first time.
The finish is applied and and I am assembling the sconce.
Watch the video to see how the sconce is put together and what is in store for part 4.
The parts are cut out and I am applying the finish – before assembly. I am finishing before gluing up because it would be difficult to apply the finish after assembly, especially between the slats.
Watch the video to see the finish I’m using and what is in store for part 3.
In the last post was a short video of preliminary drawings of a Modern Prairie Sconce. In this post see a video of part one of how the sconce was built.
I’m working on a drawing for a modern prairie sconce and made a short video about it. I would welcome your input and comments on the design as I will be working on the prototype soon.
Frank Lloyd Wright used the clerestory windows to great advantage in his Usonian period houses with a continuous band of windows at the top of a wall immediately below the ceiling line, giving the ceiling the illusion of floating above the wall.
In this video see how the Wright’s clerestory windows served a inspiration for the Clerestory Corner Lamp.
Frank Lloyd Wright Plans are difficult to find. I’ve added a new page I call “The Definitive Guide to Frank Lloyd Wright Plans on the Web“.
There I have assembled links to all the Wright-related woodworking plans I am aware of along with my experiences in building some of them. Where I have experience with multiple plans for the same design, I’ve offered my opinion on the plan I would choose.
If you know of any other plans I have not listed, please let me know and I’ll add them to the page.
As promised in my last post the Modern Student Desk Plans are now available.
I had a rather discriminating client (my daughter) who needed a basic desk to fit her modern design tastes.
This design I came up with has a laminated mdf top with purchased legs and was easy to build.
