Cane With Character

136 days ago by Pooka | 0 comments »

I jumped the back fence several months ago. We have a canyon out there and there is a lot of deadfall and detritus that I like to rummage through for odds and ends that might make interesting additions to my project list. The last adventure uncovered this length of acacia which I thought might make a neat cane. It’s very hard wood, so carving it has taken a lot of hours. Obviously, the thing can’t get chucked up on my lathe, so I took some killer grinding bits to it with my ...

Cherry Refreshment Table #2: Drawer and Hardware

150 days ago by pintodeluxe | 4 comments »

This is where we left things last time…-----I built the small single drawer with half blind dovetails at all four corners. -----I installed a 9” full extension undermount drawer slide.

I plane the shim to fine tune the fit of the drawer in its opening. -----Drawer installed.-----The drawer bottom is aromatic cedar.-----Here you can see the blocking that was added to receive the drawer slide, and the figure 8 fasten...

How to make hand made curved surfaces look good in a chair bottom

163 days ago by Nels | 10 comments »

When I started out working with wood, it was a chore to find any information. I went to used book stores and bought anything that might help and asked any woodworkers I knew. Then Fine Woodworking came along and now the internet. Lumberjocks is the best help I’ve found. There are always several guys who have gone through the same problem.Now, I’m working on 15 chairs. There have been three difficult parts. The curved back, the back legs, and the chair bottom. I’m curre...

Trying new woodworking skills #16: A tighter miter

163 days ago by BJODay | 13 comments »

It has been 2 months since I worked on the project and posted any progress. In the last entry I was happy with the first mitered top. But over the holidays I would look at it and think, I can make it better, (a tighter miter). The first top was cut at 45.2 degrees. There was a slight gap in the joint. I ran a few test pieces through. I adjusted the miter sled by 0.05 degrees. I’m not kidding. The best tests were at 45.15 degrees. If I was working in pine, the first cuts could have be...

"adirondack chair making" #1: my first adirondack chair was made in 1995, now two decades later, I am still at it

168 days ago by paperclip | 2 comments »

when I was a freshman in high school (1995), I won the end of the year award for woodshop when I produced an Adirondack Chair. Now 2014, I am still at it. I only get better and better at them. Now I am giving them some Texas, southwestern, rustic flare with a cut-out the shape of the state. I now make Adirondack chairs on a weekly basis mostly for therapy. But I sell them too. In post(s) to follow I will explain more about Adirondack chair making.

Cherry Refreshment Table #1: Breadboard Ends and Tusk Tenons

171 days ago by pintodeluxe | 10 comments »

Here is my cherry refreshment table which will feature a single drawer and breadboard ends.-----I started by making breadboard mortises at the router table. The mortises are 1-1/4” deep and cut in multiple shallow passes. -----I used a 1/4” spiral bit to center a 3/8” groove in the breadboard ends. I made an initial pass in the standard right to left direction. Then I flipped the board end for end and made a pass from left to right to avoid a climb cut.-----I set up my t...
