Red IronBark Adventures #2: Ripping Red Ironbark on the table saw

09-05-2017 10:19 AM by robscastle | 4 comments »

OK I skoffed a few cans of spinach and musceled the red Iron bark post onto my table saw. Did a cut reversed it and did another cut and that was enough until my son arrives. What I got: First up I fitted a new blade, as I knew my saw was going to be “workin” chewing through that monster. The saw actually performed very well, pity I am not as strong as I used to be. So that was enough. It reminded me of when I tried to mill a log on my bandsaw! I didnt take a ...

09-25-2017 12:15 PM by shaunmza | 4 comments »

Progress is being made! Here you see the results of an afternoons work, the table top has been fixed to the base I made, then planed with a hand plane, and cut down to the size I wanted, plus, I cut notches out for the rear legs of the table. Let’s take a look how ended here. No photo’s of me attaching the top to the base, or using the hand plane to knock down edges, sorry about that.At this point I have attached the top to the base, roughly planed the top and am get...

Woodturning #5: First turning project completed

02-23-2015 02:26 AM by DW833 | 4 comments »

I started with a blank similar to a bowl blank for the base. Attached it to face plate and used a carbide tipped rougher to get it round and smooth. I thought it could be smoother, but couldn’t get it there. So used sand paper to smooth and shape it a small amount.For the rod I cut a pi...

So since there were some questions on how I got from point A to point B on my restoration of the Type 19 No5 Stanley Bailey I took a few more pictures though I will have to better next time as I got a bit lazy.

Here is a picture of my setup for this restoration. This time I put ...

”Perambulation of Visionary Imagination” i sit here in this mind of mine workspace, i am re-minded again of all those other projects that have passed my way, as they were hand played to the sound of having a perambulation of visionary imagination, which once found is then slowed down and brought into this dimension of earth bound time…. —-were i to sit in the arena of eternity, i would have no knowledge of the things that make my heart swell, while never m...

The current edition (Oct/Nov 2015) of Canadian Woodworking and Home Improvement (CWHI) magazine includes my most recent woodworking article “Build a Charles Rohlfs Rocking Chair”. I’ve built two of these rockers and previously posted them here and here. Most people are familiar with Arts and Crafts era furniture makers such as Morris, Stickley and Greene. Their furniture has been widely reproduced . Charles Rohlfs has not received the same popular notoriety. Rohlfs ...
