Off Grid Log Cabin #2: Off Grid Log Cabin: Moving 1000 pound Logs Solo

12-19-2018 04:00 AM by MaxAdvoko | 0 comments »

Hello folks! Back in 2015 during my vacation, I started to build a log cabin using fallen trees at Ladoga Lake. As a side note: I purposefully didn’t chop a single live tree for my cabin construction which made the task more difficult. The task proved to be more difficult than the construction itself. I used extra thick logs for my cabin’s construction. To move wet and heavy logs I used an A-shaped frame with a pulley under its peak.Such leverage and support hoist allows me to...

Off Grid Log Cabin #1: Off Grid Log Cabin: Laying Extra-Thick Logs Solo

12-19-2018 03:47 AM by MaxAdvoko | 0 comments »

Hello folks, Back in 2015 during my vacation, I started to build a log cabin using fallen trees at Ladoga Lake. So, I decided to reclaim those extra-thick logs for my cabin’s construction. I am a practicing lawyer based in St.Petersburg, Russia and can work on this colonization project only during my summer vacation, which is about a month a year. I chose a round notch (also knows as a saddle cope) to join logs in my cabin.To make my cabin stronger I used square wooden stakes to secure...

A Pekovich tea box #1: Pekovich's tea box

12-19-2018 12:00 AM by metolius | 2 comments »

When I may say I like wood working, people ask what I make, and I usually say that I am getting my shop together and I make a lot of shop stuff. This is really about how little time I have had for creative shop work this past year. Pending Christmas, I decided that it was time, and I was willing, to spend substantial time in the shop with a deadline.. This summer’s FW issue covered Pekovich’s tea box. https://www.finewoodworking.com/2018/05/16/dovetailed-tea-box-plan I ha...

Stickley No. 369 Slant-arm Morris Chair #8: finished...

12-18-2018 06:41 PM by TigerTed | 0 comments »

I covered the sanded/planed chair with plastic and put some household ammonia in a pan. Repeated that a couple times and got some brown color. Next, I used a darker shellac sanding lightly between coats. A dark wax was applied and rubbed out. Made a poplar frame that the upholstery guy decided not to use..

Stickley No. 369 Slant-arm Morris Chair #7: Finishing up the woodworking

12-18-2018 06:16 PM by TigerTed | 0 comments »

The rounded slats are cleaned up with plane and spokeshave. Next they are tenoned. I used the straight piece from previous entry to mark tenons. Tenons aren’t square to the world. Then it is a ton of fitting work again. Mortises made same way as before. Another dry fit. Marking tenons so I can chamfer them to intersection point. Shortened arm tenons to protrude about 5/16” Everything is chamfered. Did most of that with a block plane. Next we sweat the gl...

Stickley No. 369 Slant-arm Morris Chair #6: Start on the back

12-18-2018 05:48 PM by TigerTed | 0 comments »

The back slats will be curved. First we need the distance between tenons. The stile of the back are milled and with locating hole assemble to the chair with a pin. A mock up straight section tenon was made. Next we need a form to glue the back slats. Two curved forms were made with the bandsaw. Between the forms at spacers that allow us to clamp and accommodate the various slat heights. That assembly is mounted to a piece of plywood. Everything has thin foam sheet to prevent slat...

Stickley No. 369 Slant-arm Morris Chair #5: Start to arms.

12-18-2018 05:33 PM by TigerTed | 0 comments »

First we need to make bent arms. Not really bent. Bandsaw wedge off top and glue to bottom. Clean with handplane until angle is right. The legs now have grooves to accept corbels (router) and tenons on the top (bandsaw and handsaw). Tenons in rear leg are angled at the shoulder to match the rail. In this view I show that the clamped chair side is used to mark the mortises of the arms. The hole was drilled with a brace in the vise as shown. Tried drill press with no luck. ...

And more rough joinery....

12-18-2018 05:06 PM by TigerTed | 0 comments »

Did I mention bottom side rails are angled. Makes the slats all different lengths. What a ton of work to get the joints tight and spaced right. Method of making mortise and tenons same except not through here. First we get the rails aligned well with drawbore holes. All surfaces dressed with hand plane to make smooth and straight. I numbered my joints to maintain orientation. Steel stamped. !https://s3.amazonaws.com/vs-lumberjocks.com/pjxy7ab.jpg! Did I say there was lots...
