New Shop! #11: Finished (Years Later)

07-29-2016 02:24 AM by Ryan Haasen | 7 comments »

Let me first apologize to those of you who were following my shop build back in 2012 – I forgot to post the finished product! I suppose my incomplete blog is the result of a combination of excitement with my new shop and just being busy with woodworking, school, and life in general. I know that if I was following a build and they failed to post the complete shop, I’d be a little ticked off! Now that I’ve got that out of the way, let’s move on to the shop. I will beg...

Workbench Build #1: Benchtop in progress

07-11-2016 11:21 PM by Brian Gulotta | 0 comments »

Had a good day out in the shop. I ripped all the extra 2×8’s I had leftover from a storage shed build for the bench top. I hand planed the faces with a #4 getting them ready for glue up (I left 5 boards for tomorrow ;)

Hand Tool Driven Lowboy Build

04-28-2016 01:15 PM by OrangeElk | 4 comments »

The following is intended to document my process for building a lowboy. The build is primarily done with hand tools but I did end up using power tools as the project got going. This build was for a independent study so I had access to the university lab’s machines. The lowboy I chose looks like a transition piece between William and Mary to Queen Anne. This low boy was featured in PWM by Glen Huey, but I never ended up reading the issue, I made the plans from pictures. Starting the p...

Building Dave's Stacking Chair #11: Bonus Reel!

07-30-2015 01:56 AM by Dave Rutan | 6 comments »

And the rest… [Below] One of the chairs (only one!) had back legs that curved slightly inward. This prevented it from stacking on top of the other chairs. I made a spacer and wet the legs to try and curve them outwards. It worked! Here I am repeating the process, adding a washer at the end of the spacer stick to try and open it up a bit more. [Below] The other 5 remaining chairs having been sanded and ready for staining. Somehow the center of gravity is such that 6 ch...

Building Dave's Stacking Chair #10: Finishing and Finished!

07-26-2015 09:08 PM by Dave Rutan | 10 comments »

[Legebla ankaŭ en Esperanto] The only thing I had time to do yesterday was glue up the last seat back Yay! Part of what you see below was done Friday evening, the rest this afternoon. [Below] The chair receives a treatment of Dark Cherry stain, both top and bottom. I knew these cheap foam brushes would come in handy. [Below] After the excess stain is wiped off, the chair is ready for the lacquer. [Below] I’m using a spray lacquer. It’s one of the reasons I ...

Building Dave's Stacking Chair #9: Finishing the Build, but not Finished

07-24-2015 06:09 PM by Dave Rutan | 5 comments »

[Legebla ankaŭ en Esperanto] Started the day like always, gluing up another back piece. One more to go! [Below] The seats are cut out of 1/2 inch plywood. First I rip the 2×4 foot sheet at 16 inches, then I cross cut to get 3 seats per sheet. It would be more economical to cut these from a larger sheet, but a) I have no way to get a 4×8 foot sheet in my car, b) pretty sure a full sheet gives me more seats than I actually need. I’ll use the cut off for something, I’...

Building Dave's Stacking Chair #8: Day 4: The Curved Back

07-23-2015 11:16 PM by Dave Rutan | 4 comments »

[Legebla ankaŭ en Esperanto] Today I started by removing yesterday’s back piece from the bending press and gluing up another one. Then I took one of the first ones I made and scraped any glue squeeze out from one edge. [Below] Running the clean edge along my rip fence, I skim trim the other edge to get it smooth. Then I do the same with the opposite side. [Below] The back piece blank is larger than needed. In this case, the space between the sides is 17 inches, just like i...

Building Dave's Stacking Chair #7: Assembly

07-22-2015 06:23 PM by Dave Rutan | 7 comments »

[Legebla ankaŭ en Esperanto] [Below] The front legs are put on first because they have that convenient cut out which serves to support the seat frame. [Below] I’ve drilled and countersunk the holes in these pieces so that once they’re on it’s done. [Below] Before the glue dries I check that the legs are sitting the same. We’ll presume my table saw top is even. [Below] The backs legs to not have a mechanical reference for their position so I cut ...
