Stickley No. 369 Slant-arm Morris Chair #2: Rough work of quartersawn white oak

12-18-2018 01:03 PM by TigerTed | 0 comments »

I rough cut and milled trying to find best utilization of wood while preserving aesthetics. The core of the legs was 8/4 stock. I insisted that the through tenons not show a glue line. Because we want ray fleck on all 4 sides of the legs there are 4 laminations. Laminations were cut on the bandsaw tad thick. After all glued up, the legs were rotated around on jointer/bandsaw to center the tenon stock and reach final dimension. When gluing, I used my bench as a caul. Wax pap...

Grandson's Coffee Table #4: A start on the drawer

12-12-2018 06:06 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Had to haul the last 1×6 x 6’ plank to the shop…5 hours later, swept the shop, called it a day. Dust collector? I let the dust settle out onto the floor, sweep it up into my DUST PAN, and dump that “dust collector” into the shop’s trash can….and, when THAT get full, I empty that into the firepit, light a match…maybe roast some hotdogs.. Anyway…removed the clamps from the glue up….no creaks, no cracking sounds….must have...

Building a Corner Cabinet From Magazine Plans

12-12-2018 01:15 AM by wrenchhead | 1 comment »

I built this corner cabinet out of curly maple. I built this project by following an article in the November 2010 issue (No. 186)of Popular Woodworking Magazine. I really love this design and this is the second one of these style cupboards i have built over the years. I mostly followed the plans in the article but I did make some changes, incorporating a beginner blacksmith project in to the cabinet. I forged these simple J hooks at the anvil for the piece and am I’m really happy with h...

Ukulele #3: Back and neck install

12-07-2018 09:58 AM by Fchilly | 2 comments »

I sanded the uke and laid out the bridge location and installed it. This was very easy with the fretboard already glued in place, and the back not installed yet. After shaping the braces and prepping the neck joint i was able to move on to final installation of the remaining components. Before glueing the neck or back, I set my router a tad shallow and cut clearance for the back’s binding just in the area my router wouldnt reach later rightnear the neck. I glued the neck into place a...

Got to looking Thursday night ( stuff in the dryer duty, again) angle of the taper didn’t look quite right…was coming out way too low….maybe IF the blanks were a bit thinner? Took about a saw blade width off the two “inside” faces..and redrew the taper….at least it will come out at the 5” mark…..bandsaw to trim the worst off….needed to build a jig to plane the tapers smooth.. This afternoon…finally was able to get a bit of shop...

Ellis-Mackintosh-Limbert mashup table #1: E-M-L in process

11-18-2018 03:29 PM by kordwood | 3 comments »

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but this little piece seems share-worthy. It’s an homage to three of my favorite Arts and Crafts pioneers: Harvey Ellis, Charles Limbert and Charles Rennie Mackintosh. They all bring a different aesthetic, but mashed up, the A&C commonality becomes clear. The Ellis influence: Most evident in the delicate edge of the top. The Mackintosh influences: The overall proportion and the inward angles of the legs. The Limbert influence: ...
