It’s amazing how many problems can result when someone tries to fix something fast. And all this is on just one chair!!! . . . . .On the last image – not only was an extra screw hole added but the screw was put in straight onto the rail and whoever did it pierced the wood a bit on the other side as the screw was simply too long (AND too thick). I guess the most difficult part will be filling in the sections of oak that broke off. Over the last couple ...
I was up before dawn this morning. 5:30 AM EST is too early in the morning to wake up with an unfinished project on your mind. You’ve probably been there too. Anyway, I got out to the shop about 7:30 or so and decided to finish attaching my left-hand table saw extension to the right side of the saw. The cast iron extension did not have any mounting holes drilled into on the left side so I had to take some time to lay them out and drill them. I wasn’t able to use my drill pres...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #156: Last Trip to the Wood Store of the Season
What an adventure yesterday was! I am very happy to be back home here safe and sound. We headed out just after 5 am and we didn’t make it back home here until almost 10 pm. Even though it was a long day, it seemed to go by very quickly. The only negative part of the day was the persistent rain, which doesn’t look as if it is going to stop until Thursday or Friday from the looks of the weather map. We knew that rain was predicted for the day, but we didn’t expect the q...
Here’s some pictures of the joinery. All done by hand (except my coping saw blade broke and the jigsaw was closer than the store.) I had a bit of a blow out while chiseling from the top, still have the piece to go back in. I think I’ll end up wedging all the tenons. You’ll notice the two bottom ones are different sizes to allow for the sliding dovetail.
I’ve got the legs together now. I feel the upright is a little thick. I’m thinking of bowing the sides with a gentle curve of about 1-1.5cm in from each side. What are peoples thoughts? I thought to centre it or have it off centre opposite to where the stretcher tennon will come through.
Today all that was left was to do a little more sanding, remove all the dust using a tack cloth and vacuum, and apply whatever finish I decided on. So here is how it went. There was actually not much sanding left to do. I did find a few little spots that were “scuffy” that I smoothed out. Then I went over the entire thing, inside and out, with fine grit sandpaper. Just to be sure, you know?Then I cleaned it up real good.Problem was, I still hadn’t decided on a finish. So I c...

Bought this log from a guy how pulled this out of his stream. This is a spalted maple with crotch figure in some of it. There is a 6’ x 36”. The other one is 10’ x 36” these are producing some some nice slabs.
This picture shows a possible solution to attaching my router table top to my table saw. The aluminum rail attaches to the saw and the top attaches to the rail. I can’t take credit for the idea, that goes to LJ joeE. Thanks joeE.
