Thomas Chippendale

01-11-2013 05:26 PM by Jim Rowe | 9 comments »

Not quite certain if this is the place to put this, but here goes. The BBC is running a series of documentaries about famous English furniture makers and carvers. The first programme in the series about Thomas Chippendale was shown last night (January 10) on BBC4. For anyone with access to the BBC’s web based iPlayer service (not certain it’s available everywhere) it is well worth viewing. The programme provided some superb historical information on Chippendale with numerous examp...

Classical miror gilding #2: Clay and gilding

05-25-2013 06:30 PM by Patricelejeune | 5 comments »

Couple weeks ago I have been making some progress on the frame. I did the clay on the part that will be water gilded, red everywhere except on the columns which were ocre. I also started the gilding with 23K gold until I run out of gold. I received it recently and will soon carry on the gilding. I will try to do videos to show the process, especially for the balls which have a nice neat trick. The balls also receive yellow then red

Random Comments #1: What sets you off?

02-19-2009 10:08 PM by Docwks | 13 comments »

You know it is interesting what sets us off. I am a lover of woodworking tools old, new, power or not; I love them all. I was reading a blog from a famous very tall non-power woodworker about the evils of power tools and how they have created places like IKEA and such for buying furniture. This guy is a really nice guy, he dresses funny, so why should I care what he thinks about power tools? I’m not sure, but it may have to do with feeling guilty about my carbon foot print when I use my Power...

Southeast Michigan Picnic, Lumberjock Getogether

05-16-2010 08:08 PM by jockmike2 | 10 comments »

I don’t remember everyone’s name but there was a lot of people there yesterday and we had one heck of a great time. I forgot my camera but Rustic Rick took a bunch of pics he said he would put on as soon as he had time. Dustin again brought his bunches of veneer. Wow, I scored on the wood exchange with a pile of curly maple plus a roll of curly maple veneer, how’s that for lucky. I know David Craig got a board of blood wood that will keep him in inlay for life. plus I gave h...

Cedar Log

08-08-2007 06:40 PM by Steffen | 6 comments »

Prior to moving into my house a tree was removed from the back yard. It was a cedar which was approximately 60’ tall. Some guy said he wanted the base of the trunk saved for a carving but he never came to get it. Does anyone in the Northern Cal area have a portable mill? Anyone need some large cedar logs?

Switched DW746 to 220V

03-03-2008 12:36 AM by sIKE | 2 comments »

What a difference this makes! It took about twenty minutes to do and I am kicking myself for not doing it sooner. The saw when I turn the power switch on is at full speed almost instantly, when it is at 110V it takes a couple of seconds to get up and going. The only thing I had to purchase was the 220 plug, and 1 additional wire nut (already on hand) and your done. If you have been putting off doing this, move it up on your list you will be extremely happy!

Fire in the hills

08-18-2015 03:36 AM by Nickdarr | 14 comments »

Unless you have been under a rock, you know there are fires burning throughout the west. I can sit on my porch and smell the smoke and see it in the air. It is sad to see all of the losses that are more devestating than just some board feet of lumber, like lives, homes, and businesses. But, being a woodworker, I am sad over the lumber as well. I have had the opportunity to live throughout the US. I have experienced natural disasters including floods, hurricanes, snowstorms, tornados, and ear...
