Beach wickerish cabinet #1: The plan, thoughts, I don't know.....

12-25-2009 11:50 PM by kolwdwrkr | 8 comments »

Well you all know me, well I’ll pretend you do. LOL. I like to start things when I have to much to do. That way I always have something to do, and can complain that I don’t have enough time for any of it. LOL. This is the beginning to almost a joke. At work I had to rip some beech mouldings down for a customer and the fall off was very thin strips of material. They are around 1/32” thick x 1/4” ish. There was a ton of moulding to rip, so I have a ton of these strip...

Greene and Greene Accented Craftsman Barstools #2: Legs and Jigs - Lessons Learned

12-25-2009 11:27 PM by schroeder | 2 comments »

Greene and Greene / Craftsman Barstools – Part DueAt this point I have all the parts cut out and am pattern routing the back legs. Unfortunately, I have no formal training and have to re-invent the wheel with every step. I cut a blank for the back legs on the band saw staying ~ 1/16” outside my line. I built a jig to pattern it with a lower bearing bit. Route one side – then switch to the other side, ala Taige Freid style – I kept having problems with the second cut being shy of th...

Greene and Greene Accents on a Craftsman Style Barstool – a batch of 8 So begins my blog on these G~n~G barstools. I spent about 8 months (part time) working on these–from design to done – and would hate to guess the actual time per stool. I had a lot of learning curves with new techniques. The places I tried to incorporate the Greene and Greene accents; fading indent, bull-nosed feet, stepped footrest, the pillowed plugs and the scalloped crest rail forming a tsuba. It’s har...

An Exciting Christmas Eve

12-25-2009 05:37 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 19 comments »

The south edge of Billings has a border created by the freeway. We live just on the other side of the freeway and are sandwiched between it and the Yellowstone River which is behind us. On the north side of the freeway is the Conoco Refinery. Last night one of the big storage tanks caught on fire. The roof collapsed on the tank and the tank burned and melted down. I can’t post the photos here because they are copyrighted by the paper, but here is a link: http://www.billingsgazett...

Cat Scratch Fever

The Mission I was contacted by some clients and asked if I would take a look a repairing an antique table they had. Antique may be used loosely here but it was an old table and was part of a set of nesting tables. The set may not be of any particular value as antiques, but the clients hold a certain fondness for the tables and wanted to see if it could be repaired. I arrived to their loft apartment, greetings were exchanged, and I was given a brief introduction to the project. The top h...

Termites in the woodpile

12-25-2009 07:11 AM by PASs | 7 comments »

Was splitting some firewood and noticed the stuff on the bottom had gotten a termite infestation….and I gotta admit I started thinking (maybe this should be a you might be a lumberjock if post) anyway, started to thinking “if I leave this for a while, the termites might do something interesting to the wood and I can make something out of it. I have some furniture my dad made using driftwood from the Gulf of Mexico. It has holes bored through it from some type of marine worms. A...
