The Simpler Life

13 days ago by TDog | 0 comments »

Well, As I work towards finishing a run of Adirondack chairs I’ve chosen to put the power tools aside for a while except for needed home repairs. It’s time to simplify. Time to quiet down my woodworking. I want to focus on building larger pieces 99% to 100 by hand. I’m still debating on the table saw issue. Time for creative challenges instead of obsessive production, stress, and the shrills of power tools all day. My new goals are larger historic furniture piece...

Recreating Rohlfs (and more) – A Woodworkers Pilgrimage

44 days ago by Woodbridge | 8 comments »

One of my woodworking objectives is to recreate a number of iconic works from little known Arts and Crafts era furniture maker Charles Rohlfs. Most woodworkers are familiar with Arts and Crafts makers such as Morris, Stickley and Greene. Their furniture has been reproduced by many woodworkers and is routinely featured in woodworking magazines. Charles Rohlfs has not received the same popular notoriety. Rohlfs was born in Brooklyn on 1853. He was trained as a designer and draftsman an...

trying to re-invent the top

61 days ago by Jim Sellers | 6 comments »

You can’t appreciate this toy unless you see it in action. I hope the link works. It’s my first ever youtube video and the first video ever shot on my iphone. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JclY0Ho9dC8&feature=youtu.be I started tinkering and playing with this idea a couple of years ago and just decided to take it back off the shelf. The kids might not want to put their video games down long enough to try and master this simple toy but I would set the age range from 6 &#...

Driftwood Fish #1: Bass almost completed

84 days ago by piddlinchic | 19 comments »

My first “real” carving and first time ever posting the process of a piece of work, so please just have patience with me :) The fish began with a piece of driftwood I found in the creek behind my house. It already had a nice curve to it, was fairly solid and had a natural “mouth” which I immediately thought would make a pretty cool fish. (sorry I don’t have a pic of the driftwood before I began sanding it some, I just wanted to see what it look...
