Greene & Greene Gamble House Side Chair #1: Material Preparation

10-05-2017 11:12 PM by TungOil | 7 comments »

Now that my Thorsen inspired dining table is complete (you can see the BLOG here), it is time to turn my attention to a set of chairs. Since I have never built a chair, I decided to enroll in the Gamble House Side Chair class at Marc Adams School of Woodworking in Indiana. Many will know the instructor, Bob Lang, who is not only a Lumber Jocks member but has authored several books and was editor of Popular Woodworking magazine for many years. The chair design is based on the side chairs in...

Moving forward, ready to try and tackle the next step

10-05-2017 09:49 PM by Archer72 | 3 comments »

So since I have a simple contractor saw, which works great minus the fence system, that I think was designed by my 3 year old. I have decided I dont like it mobile, since I dont go anywhere with it anyways. I have started to build a cabinet to hold the saw, and the base is built, but I dont really care for how the top connecting to the saw went together, mainly because I have a 3 inch gap between the infeed and the table. I am going to make a rip fence to replace the one the saw came with,...

Shop stuff #106: No Lathe Chisel Handles

10-05-2017 09:17 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

My first time ever using a draw knife. These are the first chisels I ever bought and the handles have given up on them. I don’t have a lathe, so you work with what you have and learn and have fun at the same time. My son has recently shown an interest in woodworking so these will be his first set of chisels.

And at the back to match the existing pan...

New Home Workshop #2: And So It Begins

10-04-2017 05:00 PM by builtinbkyn | 19 comments »

The first step in getting to the promised land was to clean out the existing shop. Man I can’t believe how some people abuse their stuff and their working space. There was years of accumulated junk behind those nice white cabinet doors pictured below. It seems that whom ever it was that used that shop space left everything where it was when they finished. There were dozens of empty containers of weed killer, dried out paint brushes, the packaging for stuff just left where it was rem...

Just getting started

10-04-2017 08:28 AM by Archer72 | 9 comments »

So after nearly 20 years in the military and enjoying that life, I have been retired and decided to get back into wood working. I have forgotten most of what I learned as a young man, I had some talent for working with wood, but had a very lot to learn as well. Never had my own little shop I could work in, always had to borrow my Dad’s equipment and shop. So now I have decided to get back into it, and since I never do anything slowly or start out small, I have built my own shop in my...
