Indian pottery and pyrography #5: More burning

06-06-2018 02:54 PM by Julian | 5 comments »

The wood burning can be a slow and tedious process but the results are worth the effort in my opinion. This will be the final post for this blog. I have a little more work to do on this pattern but will post in the projects section when it is completed.

Indian pottery and pyrography #4: Starting the pyrography

06-05-2018 02:28 PM by Julian | 2 comments »

With the pattern all drawn in pencil it is much easier to burn the lines.I used a skew tipped pyrography pen. The straight edge on the pen tip helps burn a straight line.

Indian pottery and pyrography #2: The segmented turning

06-04-2018 03:09 PM by Julian | 4 comments »

I decided to make this turning from cherry. The cherry get a little darker with age but the pyrography should easily stand out. The piece is approximately 11” in diameter and 8” tall. 16 segments per ring.

• Two-Tier Side Table #8: Some Assembly Required

05-14-2018 11:38 PM by Ron Aylor | 10 comments »

Some Assembly Required –  With all of the zig-zag decorated aprons and three of the carved sides complete, I though it time to cut mortises and dry fit the table frame together. I must say it was quite fun channeling my inner Peter Follansbee, but it’s time to put away the carving tools and get out the joinery tools …  … but first … I took the time to make two interlocking trays to hold my newly acquired gouges. All I have used so far is No. 7 straight gouges – 20mm & 10...

• Two-Tier Side Table #7: My Very First Lunette

05-07-2018 11:58 AM by Ron Aylor | 16 comments »

My Very First Lunette -  Having completed the zig-zag decoration on the aprons, I took my first steps toward some real  carving. To avoid undue marring of my bench, I decided to nail the work-piece to a 1×6 … which I secured to the bench via bar clamps. As mentioned earlier, I’ll be carving lunettes in the sides of the second tier. In architecture, a lunette is a half-moon shaped space. After laying out the lunettes with compass and awl …  … I took a deep breath and mad...

• Two-Tier Side Table #6: Zig-Zags

05-03-2018 05:59 PM by Ron Aylor | 15 comments »

Zig-Zags - I mentioned earlier that I was going to have a chopped zig-zag decoration at the bottom of the aprons. This decoration is seen quite often on 17th-century furniture. It is also know as a sawtooth or serration decoration. To create the pattern, I cut a 1/8” x 1” rebate in the face of the stock, by first creating a shoulder with my kerfing plane …  … chopping out waste with a chisel …  ... and then using a rebate plane to smooth things out …  I then laid out the zig...

• Two-Tier Side Table #5: I Can't Carve

05-02-2018 06:45 PM by Ron Aylor | 8 comments »

I Can’t Carve –  Well … not yet  anyway! I need a proper carving mallet … can’t very well use one of these guys …  Hmmm … I bet there’s a mallet inside this tulip poplar branch …                 After cutting a billet, removing the bark, and attacking one end with a hatchet … it was off the the old spring pole lathe.  After about an hour or two … presto! This should work just fine.  It feels great in my hand and has a good bit of heft. So now  it’s time to ...

• Two-Tier Side Table #4: Hepplewhite Visits Plymouth

05-01-2018 10:46 PM by Ron Aylor | 8 comments »

Hepplewhite Visits Plymouth –  I have all the ash for the frame roughed out and partially jointed. I’ll tackle the shelf and top when the time comes. Before I cut mortise and tenon joints and assemble the frame ...                  … I going to try my hand at a bit of carving! Seventeenth-Century New England carving to be more specific. I’ve been studying Peter Follansbee’s work for quite some time, and thought I’d dress-up this Hepplewhite-ish  two-tier table j...

• Eighteenth-Century Frame Saw #4: Side Rails and a Test Drive

04-15-2018 11:28 PM by Ron Aylor | 14 comments »

Side Rails and a Test Drive –  After reorienting the horse and the cart, I used my tenoning clamp & chairmarker's tenon saw ...   … to create a tenon at one end of each of the two 3/4” x 1” cherry side rails.   I then cut 3/8” x 3/4” x 1-3/8” through mortises in the handles …  ... to accept the side rails.                 After a quick check for squareness …  I assembled one end of the saw and attached the blade …  … It was then that I was able to determine the len...
