After having received several requests for a detailed blog of a rocking chair build I spoke with Hal Taylor and received his permission to do this. This chair is based on his first book and set of plans. He has a new book with updated plans which I am getting soon. This is not a full-time job for me so I will be posting one week at a time since I get to spend maybe an hour every other night on the chair. Week one sees the planing and cutting out of all the blanks. I purchase 40-50 bd...
Once the body is the right shape, cut ¼” to ½” off the back of the body and set that aside. That piece will be the back of the bandsaw box.
Cut out the shape of the body. For the heart example I needed two cuts. For some other more exotic examples, you may need more cuts, or maybe even one cut! Here one of my students demonstrates.
Does anyone know how I should go about selling my husband’s tools? I know that they are too heavy to ship and I don’t know of too many woodworkers in this area of northeast Arkansas. How do I price the tools? Can someone give me advice on how to get this accomplished as I am contemplating moving out of state. Thanks for your help.
Open up your creative mind and let it flow! The easiest design for a bandsaw box is one that allows for the fewest cuts. If you could make one continuous cut around the box, that would be great, but do what your design calls for. If you want square corners, you may need to use another tool like a miter saw to trim the ends of the block. For this example, I chose a heart shaped design. Draw the outline of the box on the front of the block.
For the first part of the project, you must ask yourself, “What size is the box going to be?” If you aren’t sure, just take a couple 2×4’s and glue them together, or get a chunk of a cedar 4×4, they work good, and smell nice when they are cut up. You can get as elaborate as you want later on, but for starters keep things simple to manage. The project must be made from a solid piece of wood or several pieces glued together to become solid. By laminating ...

Finally after getting the table saw and tuning it, I’m able to get back on track with woodworking projects… I still dont have my router table, so using the incra fence wouldn’t be possible to get the dovetails done. I read “The Bandsaw Book”, and it had a really nice Jig for making dovetails on the bandsaw with handcut look and fit, but with the automation of a machine and jig. I really liked the idea, and figured I’d use that technique. unfortunatel...
