This chair was a difficult repair. As you can see, you can never have enough different types of clamps on hand.I repaired seven chairs for this customer.Please note that the front leg was completely broken off. I re-attached it using a hardwood dowel. The chair was not worth making a new leg. After trimming and staining, You could barely notice the repair. After all, previously it was ready for the fireplace an hour and a half before. the customer was happy, So I was too!God bless ...

I recieved rivergirl's stool - please rejoice with me

11-24-2010 03:39 AM by helluvawreck | 70 comments »

Dear Lumberjocks, I recieved rivergirl’s gift to me only moments ago. I don’t know what to say, exactly. It is absolutely beautiful. It’s a beautiful foot stool where I can rest my feet in the twilight years of my old age. It’s everything that I ever thought it would be – even more. Rivergirl says it has flaws in it. Kelly, where are the flaws that you spoke of? I don’t see the flaws. I told you that my toolbox that I build for you has flaws in it and t...

PSI AC1000-PF2 fitment into a Grizzly G0572 Air Filter... So far so good...

11-24-2010 03:15 AM by dbhost | 4 comments »

As my regular readers know, I needed to replace the original primary filter on my Grizzly G0572 Hanging Air Filter with remote. Due to me not wanting to go to the poor house on disposable filters, I opted to search out a permanent / washable filter solution. The closest thing I could find is the Penn State PSI AC1000-PF2 replacement primary filter. The filter is designed for the Penn State AC1000 air filter, and has a stated dimension of 19×14.5×1. Of those dimensions, only one w...

A Little Cabinetree #4: Leaves to Dye For (From)

11-24-2010 01:42 AM by shipwright | 13 comments »

About the same time as I started this project I found a source for aniline dyes that came in concentrated liquid form and were available in a starter kit of 12×2oz. bottles, a substantial pallet of colors to work with. When it came to coloring the leaves it was a small step to think of them and there began the process that lead to my biggest challenge on this piece. Let me say here that I’ve never done this before or heard of it being done. I’m flying completely blind here, 1...

Upholstered Rocking Chair

11-24-2010 01:16 AM by DaveConry | 5 comments »

About 30 years ago, just before the birth of our first child, I bought my lovely wife a brand new heavy duty upholstered rocking chair. I don’t recall exactly what it cost, but I remember working a heck of a lot of overtime to save up for it. I think it was in the neighborhood of 600 dollars. That was a lot of money to a newlywed couple in the early 1980’s. I think it was the first piece of new furniture we ever owned. After about 25 or so years of daily use it was finally retired to the base...

Woodcraft's New WoodRiver V3 #4 Smoothing Plane Reveal video

11-24-2010 12:57 AM by MrToolHunter | 9 comments »

I’m calling this a reveal rather than a review, because quite frankly I’m not the guy you want reviewing hand planes. You see, I’m a power tool guy, but as I mention in the video, I’m starting to fall back in love with hand tools. In recent months I’ve been researching planes and while there are some incredible planes available from Lie-Nielsen and Lee Valley, I just couldn’t bring myself to part with that much of my hard earned cash. Enter the new Woodc...

If I had it to do all over again.....

11-23-2010 11:10 PM by NBeener | 29 comments »

I’m SO new to woodworking that nearly EVERY project has me back at the bottom of some learning curve or another. I rarely get to fall back on skills that I’ve learned well, used often, and perfected. And … when I leave glitches in my projects, making ME think I earned a grade of “B+” or “A-,” I always wonder …. What if I did that project again. Would I get an “A?” So …. I’m making my wife a box, based on the ...

Lumber Selection pt. 1

11-23-2010 10:31 PM by Andy Brownell | 1 comment »

I’ve been recently commissioned to build a set of matching, shaker-style tables for a client.One is a 60” x 18” wide hall table, the other is a 20×32 side table.My client is a fan of the color purple, so I wanted to provide them with something that is both addressing this need, but also aesthetically pleasing. My solution is to build the tops from the purple heart pictured here and then use some ribbon figured sapele for the base (legs and rails). The two should be a ni...

This piece is not finished….I am about to make a new, thicker top. I feel that the existing top is too thin….SWMBO thinks that the existing top looks just fine…..What you think?
