First up I took the advice of our learned LJs and redesigned the seat and legs to suit their suggestions. Here is the rebuild. OK now back to the past. The seat sculpting commenced. I made a couple of jigs to shape the seat Then powering up the grinder and I had the chips flying big time. Next was the morticin...

methods of work #40: More Chinese chair mockups

07-08-2014 01:35 AM by Loren | 4 comments »

The end grain of the crest rail had to be carefully marked and carved/planed to fit the squared boards the armpieces are cut from. This is one of those things thatmakes chairs kind of funny where there are curvedparts intersecting. All it takes is patience and sharptools. I used a low angle jack plane some, sliding the plane sideways as I pushed to sheer off endgrain shavings, not something I had done before. before that I got close using chisels and rasps to getit close.

Woodworking Machinery/Tools Reviews #1: My experience with SawStop

07-30-2014 01:22 AM by Ron Messersmith | 4 comments »

Recently, I switched my main shop workhorse from a MiniMax CU300 Smart Combination Machine to the 5 HP Industrial Saw Stop Tablesaw. My reason is pretty simple: I am changing my major work from furniture to small boxes, bowls and wood toys. I am 67 and just want to get away from the heavy lifting. The MiniMax was a great machine but was just a little more than I needed and did not really support the jigs I had accumulated over the years or the Incra Fence system that I wanted to support...

Wood hinges, Incra HingeCrafter

04-17-2018 12:11 AM by MrLaughingbrook | 4 comments »

I bought the HingeCrafter and did one practice set of hinges following the directions as closely as possible. All seemed to go well and indicate I could get better with practice. So, when I decided on wood hinges for my current project then I thought I’d make a wood hinge inventory using current project stock plus some exotics scraps to improve my skills and not have to relearn and practice with the jig for a while. 3/8 inch hinges. A few comments may help someone on a similar eff...

spring cleaning and repairs.

05-29-2015 12:58 AM by emart | 4 comments »

I went through the entire shed today and got all the junk that has been accumulating for the last year or so out of it (two garbage cans so far). After I swept the wood shavings out I noticed a 6 inch wide hole in the floor. So I had to replace a section of the floor about 1ft wide by 8ft long in the entrance because it was so haggard. Next up is getting the tools organized and doing some maintenance on them since I didn’t have time to do so when I was in college. And yes there...

Some of y’all may remember the post a few years ago about the wood lathe I built. I’ve been meaning to write about the “how & why” of this project for some time and I finally got around to it! I talk about the motivation to build my own lathe, the expenses, design process, & of course building the lathe in addition to other things. Per the norm, the post can be found on my blog. I hope you enjoy the read!

What I did on my summer vacation.

08-23-2015 09:13 PM by Lazy_K | 4 comments »

Medieval reenactment aka Pennsic or the Pennsic War. I taught woodworking of course.they call me Kai SaerPren there. We got a couple of really nice Cherry butts from a local firewood seller, there’s not enough time to actually make something but we do get to run through a gamut of skills: starting with riving, then hewing, shaving, planing, sawing, marking and making a draw bore mortice and tennon, everyone gets to have some hands-on ti...
