It has taken a while but I have finally got the carving of the tall back chair almost completed. I honestly can’t imagine how Rohlfs came up with this carving design. I don’t even know how to describe it, however his Tall Back Chair is my favorite. Here are some pictures of the back roughed out and the front and back views with the carving completed. My carving skills are rudimentary and my result does not have the fine and crisp detail of Rohlfs chair, but I...

now that I have the frame made, I can work on drawer supports.
Today, after some final sanding, it was time to start assembly. The top and shelf surfaces were glued and dropped into place.The drawer front was glued on.Then I drilled the holes for the knobs my wife picked out.She picked these because they are the same ones on her jewelry cabinet. She said she likes them and wanted the same. I’m using Minwax Dark Walnut stain. This is one of my favorite stains. It gives off a different effect depending on the wood and how you apply it. You can obtain...

I want to thank all you guys for the thoughts and well wishes, ALL OF YOU!This one was different for me because it is my youngest girl and she is still under my roof. I am glad it is done and await her return home with the new bundle of joy.
Question 1. Do all basset hounds think that under the saw horses is as good a place as any, or just this one? Question 2. Where did I put the pooper-scooper?
Just finished installing my new Delta T2 fence on my Craftsman saw (model 113.298720) that I bought new in ‘87 or ‘88. Yes, I’d suffered that long with the original fence! I used the existing holes in both the rails and table that are just to the left of the blade. I drilled additional holes in the right side extension wing. The hardware pack that came with the fence only included 2 bolts each for front and rear rail. I plan on picking up 2 additional each at hardware...
