Outdoor Morris Chair #3: First leg done... Playing with jigs

05-01-2011 03:58 PM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 0 comments »

Got the first leg together. It’s square to the ground so I must have done something right. Had a hard time lining up the board. I knew the board would move and didn’t want to do a bunch of clamping. After all, I’ve got eight of these legs for the two chairs. Made a stupidly simple jig that would sandwich the two boards.

In re-sawing the old tank boards, I ran into lots of interesting stains and natural defects which I decided to leave instead of cutting them out.....Ran into natural defects such a...

Asian Woodworking #2: Indonesian Artisans

07-05-2011 05:50 AM by JRL | 2 comments »

Just couldn’t believe what was being used for roadside vendor tables in Bali—6 to 8 inch beautiful slab tables! That would make for a dream workbench. Anyway, here are pictures of carvers, their wares and tools, at various points on a trip we made a couple years ago for our tenth anniversary. The final products they turn out are ornate. The chisels used there are often handle-free. Pounding the tang suffices. The anvil idea is innovative, as is the foot vise. ...

Well, my 11 year old son bought his first benchtop tool. We went in 1/2 and 1/2, he bought a used Craftman 16” scrollsaw at an auction we went to. It cost $17.50. He can’t wait to start his first project.
