A carved, ebonized, and gilded, wing back chair. (Pix)

2255 days ago by John Fry | 15 comments »

This commissioned piece is a hand carved, ebonized, faintly gilded, and upholstered, wing back chair. It is upholstered in black leather and faux hide, over 18 hand tied springs. It has come to be known as “Bambi”. As always, I welcome your comments AND critiques on this latest project. This custom designed and fit chair is for a very petite lady who has always had problems with chairs fitting her. It is a “modified” wing back chair that is actually designed to be more of an office chai...

Work In Progress #1: Patio Furniture

2331 days ago by Ike | 2 comments »

Alright, I have decided that I would like to build my own patio furniture instead of buying a set from “the big box stores.” I took the design idea from a table I saw at one of those stores, but it is slightly different, also I didn’t like the chairs that they had with the set, those are still in design phase. here is the table’s design that I have drawn using google’s sketch up: I’ll continue to work on the chair designs, but I was sort of inter...

A chair for my office #1: First construction photos

2338 days ago by Dan Lyke | 5 comments »

Sunday night we were going to start on the bathroom vanity, but Charlene didn’t feel like hanging out in the shop, so I went out to make some sawdust. We’ve got a bunch of spare birch, so I took the scrappiest of it and started to push the limits of how I interacted with our tools and wood. This is where I’ve gotten to so far. I had a chair for my office, one of those standard el-cheapo office chairs you get from the big box stores, and it broke. Then we moved, in t...

Transforming a Kitchen Cookbook Nook

2389 days ago by Mark A. DeCou | 15 comments »

I have a client that lives close to me, and we have had a lot of fun designing and building things for their home. They sort of “pushed” me into quitting my day job by offering a long term commission to transform their home with functional-art pieces one at a time, according to an overall game plan. They had a general idea of what they wanted, but needed someone to turn the dream into wood. They were willing to adapt their ideas to mine, and vice versa, and I have really appr...

MsDebbieP's Company Tours #14: Oneway Mfg

2458 days ago by MsDebbieP | 10 comments »

My latest journey has taken me not far from my hometown. I had the opportunity to speak with Kevin Clay of Oneway Mtg, which is located in Stratford, Ontario. The HistoryOneway Mtg, which is owned by Kevin’s father, began as a contract machine shop. One day they received an order for a chuck. The order was canceled after the products were made and they were left with 50 chucks, which they then sold to other buyers. From there, the path led them to where they are today. Vision for The Fu...

Building a Carved Functional-Art Chair to Match the Tilt Front Desk

2466 days ago by Mark A. DeCou | 16 comments »

I’ve had a fun week. I’m building a chair to match the Tilt Front Desk that I previously posted, and blogged about. If you want to read about the desk, the posting link is given at the bottom of this blog. The desk chair is designed to fit the customer’s kitchen, as the desk is being placed in the kitchen area. She loves to cook, and hopes to move her laptop computer station to the kitchen where she can capture her thoughts on her cooking blog, and do more writing. ...

Morris Chair Lalapalooza #3: The End Products...

2473 days ago by schroeder | 12 comments »

The rest…I had cut the parts for the ottomans and glued up (after a dry fit) – I finished the glue up – Then everything into the fume tent. I put it all in with 33% ammonia for 24 hours at about 65 degrees. When they come out they are almost black, a deep shade of gray – After putting on a coat of Arm R Seal sealer, everything turned a rich Carmel color. The final result – one of two finished and one of five in process. I also built two tables that complimented the ...

Morris Chair Lalapalooza #2: Stiles, Back, Arms, Glue-up

2477 days ago by schroeder | 14 comments »

Okay, at this point, legs are glued up, rails, stretchers are cut along with all the mortices and tenons. I decided to make two chairs and ottomans to completion and then come back to the other two. The next step is to cut the stiles and tenon their ends. I planned for 3/8” tenons and cut them at a horizontal router, (although a good backer board and dado setup works as well). The glue up of each side – the tenons fit tight, so I bevel the ends even before I dry f...

Morris Chair Lalapalooza #1: Morris Chair -

2479 days ago by schroeder | 9 comments »

…So I decided to take the plunge and make something for sale…on spec…I like the Morris chairs so that’s what I went with. Always a timeless classic, clean lines, and fun to build! I brought forth the Visa and bought $3000 worth of white oak (this is my first venture into the “professional” arena). I planned on building 4 chairs and ottomans. I’m not going to quit my day job, but thought I’d give it whirl on the side…The first thing I can tell you is everything that everyone has been sayi...
