Rocking Chair Summer Camp with Bill Kappel #1: Day 1 of my "Build a Rocking Chair" camp adventure with Bill Kappel

2201 days ago by motthunter | 2 comments »

The beginning of “old guy” summer camp started today and my fine camp counselor is a true gentleman named Bill Kappel. I finally found the perfect thing to do with my extra week of vacation this year. I went to rocking chair camp. For those of you who don’t know of Bill Kappel, he is also known as the rocking chair guy. He makes his own take on the Maloof style rocking chair and does it with style and class. Not only does he make chairs and other amazing wood pieces, but he ...

Baby Rattles #1: Tests and practice

2201 days ago by Alan | 1 comment »

So I found some pictures of wooden rattles online and thought I’d try to do something like that. I bought my first lathe last winter and have not put much time into it, I thought these might be good ways to practice tuning. I turned some dowels and then cut them in half with the band saw. Then I used a few different forstner bits to hollow out the ends. Dropped in dried beans and rice and glued them shut then sanded them smooth. This is after two coats of salad bowl finish an...

One Man's Junk - Chair #7: Lean on me

2201 days ago by Zuki | 7 comments »

Not much happened in the shop this evening. I decided to attach the Back Stretchers. Firstly I had to do some marking on the inside of the Back Posts so I would get a good idea on where to drill the recessed holes for the screws. I drilled pilot holes from the inside out and used those holes to guide the bit for the recessed screws. Here I am at the DP. I actually managed to take this picture myself using the timer function. Yea . . . I know . . . all cameras have timers, however ...

2201 days ago by Sac | 9 comments »

Hello Folks. Here are some photo’s of the shop. The Lumber rack I completed last Wed. The Tablesaw/router table, the server rack I used for that would I got a couple of weeks ago.

Safety, safety, safety

2201 days ago by douglbe | 1 comment »

I just finished reviewing a posted project by skeezics and he showed us his lost finger tip. Kudos for reminding us of the hazards in our workshops. I have been fortunate that I have not had a serious accident, but I have had my share of close calls from carelessness, shortcuts, and for just not knowing any better. We all need to be reminded of the dangers every time we step into our shops, we form bad habits, we think it can’t happen to us, and sometimes we just plain and simply don...

Commisions #7: pull out trash box #2

2202 days ago by teenagewoodworker | 16 comments »

hey everyone, over the last couple of days i have been able to get a lot done in terms of milling up the lumber and gluing up panels. i chose sycamore for the trash box because it is a hard wood as opposed to the pine that i was going to use before. there was a sale at the lumberyard on sycamore and it was less per bf than a select 1 board of pine. so the purchase made sense. first i got my lumber and let it sit for awhile and then milled it up. the first picture is of a rough board and ...
