Finished the replacement spindle in time for Christmas

12-31-2013 09:51 PM by CueballRosendaul | 3 comments »

A few weeks ago, I asked about fitting a replacement spindle into an old rocker without disassembling it. Here’s how it went: I took a picture of the spindle next to the missing one with my tape measure held along side it. This gave me a scale that I could duplicate by printing the picture out so the dimensions matched. I printed two copies, took one and cut it out completely to tape it to the tool rest on the lathe. The other one I took measurements at critical points with my calipe...

Time lapse Woodworking #19: Sculpting wood chair parts with Kutzall carbide

10-01-2013 01:58 AM by Canadian Woodworks | 5 comments »

I’ve been working on a set of dining chairs so I took some time to show how I sculpt some of this chair. The underside of the seat and round over on the legs needed to be sculpted to match the original chair I’ve been commissioned to build. I use Kutzall brand shaping wheels and grinding burrs for the die grinder.

Kids Stools #1: Kids step stool and chair - Prototype

09-03-2013 08:09 AM by Donovanjns | 1 comment »

I have seen this design around for a while, and I wanted to make one for my niece. I decided to make a prototype out of low cost wood to see if the geometry worked out. My biggest concern was fingers getting pinched when moving the step up and down. The stool came out pretty good, I think I will add another dowel to the front of the stool so that the back doesn’t swing all the way down when you pick it up.
