These videos are bending continuous-arm (c-arm) Windsor chair parts. I use locally harvested, green, red oak that has been split and rived down to a workable size. Then I use a draw knife, hand planes, and spoke shaves to shape the oak piece. Here is the exciting part… If cracks occur, they are repaired with thin CA glue and C-clamps. In the past few weeks, I’ve done five c-arms and four have needed repairs. These failures are common with this type of chair due to the ...
I own a Cabinet shop in south florida and im interested in buying a quality/commercial table saw. New or used, I have cash and little time. Best if located in florida but will listen for elsewhere. It has to be a heavy duty saw not a mobile unit….........
...or at least cleaned the windows.
I’ve put plenty of sweat into this project but today was the first blood. I cut myself on a plane blade clearing a shaving from the mouth. I guess that means it is still a pretty sharp blade. No tears yet but I’m sure when I put the little one in he’ll add plenty of them. Here are a few pics of the project so far. ” target=”_blank”>http://i827.photobucket.com/albums/zz192/michaelmbuffalo/Baby%20Tender/DSC02384.jpg
Well, here we are just a week before the Big Day (when all my buddies show up to hang drywall and OSB), and here’s where the project stands: Cleanup/storage – Practically everything is in the storage room, leaving only my table saw and workbench in the workshop proper. I’ve put some stuff on Craigslist and local mailing lists and got rid of some of it… The rest goes to 1-800-GOT-JUNK on Mon or Tuesday as I’ve been unable to arrange for a truck. Electr...
After experiencing the terrible quality of the new Stanley sweetheart block plane, I decided to buy a new Veritas block plane. Instead of a new one, I started looking for a used one. Well last night I got my wish. Over on the Woodnet forums, Peter was selling his Veritas low angle block plane with extra blades, shims, the handle accessories and even the chamfer guide. EVERYTHING! Its on its way here and I’ll write another review as soon as I’ve got a chance to put it thro...
Last night I got the main part of the saw assembled including the extension wings, rails, and extension table. Getting the extension wings on by myself was a bit tricky. They are really heavy and I had to hold them up with one hand and get the bolts threaded with the other. I almost asked my wife to come help but then I remembered the last time she helped me in the shop. (Good thing she doesn’t read my blogs :) ) If anyone else does this, do not put the motor cover on when the ins...
OK, so I joined the local woodworking club recently, & started my first project. I am working on – what I call a butter box.150×100x75 Maple box, with splines of ancient manuka (10,000 year old). The box is now glued up, the top routered for the lid, & the lid fits the box, but still needs a lot of sanding to dome it to my expectations. I can not wait to see it finished !!!!Next is to add the splines (three to each corner), before tapering the sides.Also need to at...
