Traditional Chinese Woodworking #4: Chinese Hammers: the Common Unknown Tool

02-04-2010 07:34 AM by chscholz | 12 comments »

Anybody who has studied Chinese woodworking will not doubt have come across prints like this one where a ancient Chinese woodworker is depicted pounding on a piece of furniture with what appears to be the blunt edge of an axe. For example the Lu Ban Jing, a woodworkers manual written around in the 15th century, shows a woodworker assembling a table by pounding on one of its legs with the blunt side of an axe. During much of China’s long and colorful history, China has been more or le...

Extremely Average #33: Henry Wood Detective Agency_Tuesday

02-04-2010 05:27 AM by Ecocandle | 17 comments »

The next day Henry arrived at his office bright and early. Francis wasn’t in yet, as he preferred to roll out of bed at the crack of noon. It was quiet and Henry took out the pencil and a pad of paper. He looked at the pencil again and then used it to write down 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, and 23. He added the number s up and they equaled 41. Next he assigned each number a letter, a, b, c, e, g, y. Leaning back he pondered his first two attempts, scratched his head, and dismissed them. Twenty minut...

Kids Rocking Chairs commision #1: Kids Rocking Chair - Almost finished

02-04-2010 05:07 AM by Dave T | 4 comments »

This is my first commisioned piece. No in progress pics on this one, but it’s almost finished. 2 coats of Tung oil finish on it so far. It’s a close replica of the antique chair the client brought to me. The only thing I really changed was the arms. The original arms were not very sturdy and had broken across the grain a couple of times and had been repaired. I actually built 2 different chairs. The first one had square legs and wasn’t working. I’ll beef that...

Alaska Jim's Comments of the Day #12: Working on the may be an interesting weekend

02-04-2010 04:58 AM by Jim Bertelson | 7 comments »

I glued up the back fence. I used an old B&D Workmate to do much of the clamping, but it didn’t allow me to sit the fence on a flat surface. The result was not optimum. Tried a little planing and sanding. Nope. I went out and bought a bunch of miscellaneous clamps, long overdue. I now have about 1/10th of the clamps I will probably need…..(-: .........remembering you never have enough clamps. So cut some new pieces…..the back fence is only 3 inches high…..and t...

Things of wood I have seen #2: A carved castle scene... in an Irish castle

02-04-2010 04:21 AM by mtkate | 3 comments »

As in my first blog entry, this is a thing of beauty I saw at Bunratty Castle in Ireland – wooden of course. It measured about 4 feet square (or so my memory says) and was housed near a window. My guess again is 17th century. I cannot fathom the amount of work this entailed. There is a closer shot of detail I found interesting below. You can see some wear on the dogs – probably from hands reaching up and petting them (alas!). I hope you enjoyed the scenery. See...
