03-17-2011 07:15 AM by newTim | 14 comments »

The question before us is whether it is 1) safe, 2) feasible, 3) advisable, 4) possible to align a HF Dust Collector motor horizontally. There have been many examples in the review section of doing this and there have been a lot of comments both pro and con. A couple of folks (CovenantCreation and

a small writing desk start to finish #2: practice

03-17-2011 04:42 AM by drewnahant | 2 comments »

Since this project is mostly for practice, with no deadline, and I want to end up with a really high quality piece of furniture, I have decided to first make the project in poplar for practice in the techniques I am expiramenting with, as well as to work out any bugs in the design. I figure that poplar is relatively inexpensive, readily available, and hard enough to turn, mill and generally work like whatever hardwood I choose for the final piece.Today I turned the legs, I have never turned ...

a small writing desk start to finish #1: design and drawing

03-17-2011 03:47 AM by drewnahant | 1 comment »

I have been thinking about making something in a more classical style for a while. The decision of what to make was actually an afterthought, im building it mostly for fun and practice, so I was more concerned with style, technique, and joinery, but here’s the criteria I came up with -Incorporate turning ( I enjoy turning, but have never actually turned a set of spindles, legs, or any other kind of matching set)-Mortise and tennon joinery ( I’m in the middle of building a p...

Grinder Dust Control on the Q&D

03-17-2011 02:45 AM by shipwright | 6 comments »

I wanted to do some grinder shaping on a seat for my Chevalet this morning and needed to control the dust. I cut, folded and taped an old box and stuck a 4” DC hose into it. I know this isn’t new but it came out looking so cool I just had to post it. Oh yes .. It worked like a hot damn. I didn’t even need a respirator. Now if I could get the pack rats to live in this lovely little house instead of under the hood of my car when I’m away, I’d really ...

How to greet your ancestors

03-17-2011 02:10 AM by BlueHatMan | 8 comments »

Mimy—that’s short for Manavihare Flaindratovo— and I did the cabinetry/furniture program together at Laney College here in Oakland. Mimy went on to work for Berkeley Mills, a preeminent furniture and cabinetry company in California, and I ended up for a time at Tharp-Hamilton. We are at opposite ends of the spectrum, Mimy and I. My kids are grown, fledged, deep into graduate school and law school and film industry careers. Mimy’s son is learning to talk. When talk he d...

How to Build a Chevalet From Scratch #3: Some Chevalet Modifications A New Friend

03-17-2011 12:45 AM by shipwright | 11 comments »

There are two stories here that can’t be separated from each other so I’ll tell them together. One is about the first modifications to the Chevalet after using it for several hours. The other is about making the acquaintance of the premier marquetry and chevalet master on this side of the ocean. As our story begins; I was having a bit of an ethical struggle with myself about offering my (however humble) Sketch Up chevalet plans publicly for free when there is someone out there ...
