Hal Taylor Rocking Chair #1: Week 1

05-13-2009 12:14 AM by NY_Rocking_Chairs | 5 comments »

After having received several requests for a detailed blog of a rocking chair build I spoke with Hal Taylor and received his permission to do this. This chair is based on his first book and set of plans. He has a new book with updated plans which I am getting soon. This is not a full-time job for me so I will be posting one week at a time since I get to spend maybe an hour every other night on the chair. Week one sees the planing and cutting out of all the blanks. I purchase 40-50 bd...

Pie Crust Table #7: The column

05-12-2009 10:17 PM by GaryK | 22 comments »

This is just a quick blog to show my progress so far on the base. Since very few have Legacy Mills I have forgone the process on using it for this. This is the first part where you will see that I am not making a traditional Pie Crust Table. Like I said in my previous blogs this will be different. I guess you can say that I am going for a Jacobean/Medieval look. Google some images on Jacobean to see what I mean. The Jacobean style was big into spirals.....This started out at a big piec...

Once the body is the right shape, cut ¼” to ½” off the back of the body and set that aside. That piece will be the back of the bandsaw box.

Bandsaw Boxes Made Easy #3: Give it some curves.

Cut out the shape of the body. For the heart example I needed two cuts. For some other more exotic examples, you may need more cuts, or maybe even one cut! Here one of my students demonstrates.

Husband died and I'm left with lots of tools

05-12-2009 08:27 PM by Wendy | 23 comments »

Does anyone know how I should go about selling my husband’s tools? I know that they are too heavy to ship and I don’t know of too many woodworkers in this area of northeast Arkansas. How do I price the tools? Can someone give me advice on how to get this accomplished as I am contemplating moving out of state. Thanks for your help.

Thanks for all the kind welcomes! I look forward to (hopefully) adding to the other great projects on the site. Also, as per your warnings, I’ve already figured out that this site is addictive!! I just ordered my table saw on Sunday and should have it by Friday! LOL

1st fiddle by ROY D #7: carving top

05-12-2009 04:17 PM by roy | 4 comments »

here is the start of my “attempt” at carving a fiddle top. I am using basswood. i got some for 75 cents a board foot. thought i would see how it went with cheap wood before i used expensive wood. fiddle #2 will get the good stuff if this one turns out good. this will give me some practice on carving and if i mess it up it don’t matter.

random #17: I finally have a proper wood lathe!

05-12-2009 01:05 PM by Gary Fixler | 7 comments »

Mom visited last week, and with some ideas of things she wanted me to build, we checked out Anderson Plywood (LA, CA) – she loves zebrawood :) – and my favorite place: Rockler (Torrance, CA). While at Rockler, she fell in love with some turned bottle stoppers made by Robert, who I think might be a manager there, and decided she wanted me to make a bunch for her and her friends, starting with a set of 3 for one friend in particular. They only had 2 chrome wine bottle stopper har...
