As I am laying out the plans for the show in Saratoga Springs, it seems that each day brings more excitement. This is the way that this are supposed to happen, right? I have a list of what I need to have prepared for the show, and one by one I am getting things checked off. It is still seven weeks away, but so many things count on other people or companies and I want to be sure that everything is in order so there are as few surprises as possible. My new printer ink system arrived yes...

How Did Sam Maloof's Rocker Inspire Us with That First Glance?

02-18-2011 03:08 PM by Charles Brock | 2 comments »

What makes Sam Maloof’s work so attractive at first glance? When I saw my first picture of his rocker in the old 1983 article in Fine Woodworking, What jumped out at me and said, “Wow”? What inspired all that has been said and done by woodworkers and lovers of fine furniture based on that initial look at his rocker? Maloof was a master woodworker, designer, finisher, personality and other things wonderful but my thought is to capture all of us so totally with that first g...

Stanley #45 #3: Stanley #45 Tote Removal

06-02-2016 12:43 AM by sfglass | 2 comments »

Tote removal on my Stanley #45.I scoured the interwebs and didn’t find anyone to point me in the right direction regarding removing the tote on my #45. My tote was in good condition but the plating on the frame is flaking off badly and rust has begun pitting the metal where the nickel has come off. I would not be happy with it in that condition and determined that sacrificing the tote, if it came to it, was a price I was reluctantly willing to pay.On the left side of my tote were two ex...

Powermatic 45 Lathe #2: Paint almost comeplete

03-11-2011 06:39 PM by stevengaletodd | 7 comments »

This is where I’m at today! I’ve pretty much taken everything apart so I could paint. I did forget to mention that this lathe has the step pulley, not the variable speed (wish it was VS). I had some trouble taking the tool rest apart, the support clamp bolt was rusted to the shaft. Finally after a lot of WD40 and a use of a small sledge, I got it freed up. It was missing the original plate on the underneath side of the tool rest. Going to have to see if I can find one. The h...

There were always things that i admired about every project, beginner or advanced. – quality of work, even the beginner has areas of great skill – the creativity of the projects, especialy art boxes, simply mazing – the different species of wood being used As i get into woodworking more and more and want to experiment with different species i began noticing th...
