• Lynnsay's Prie Dieu #6: Slight Detour

03-25-2017 11:52 PM by Ron Aylor | 5 comments »

Slight Detour –  I decided to take a slight detour from sticking the frame members, as I’m still trying to work out the details of the kneeling platform. So, as the frame sits in the sun for a bit …  ... I get started on the transition pieces between the frame and desk. I have decided not to put a full top on the frame, but instead to fashion a picture frame  of sorts to secure the desk … something kind of like this …              I start off by ripping some 2-1/...

• Lynnsay's Prie Dieu #5: Hollows and Rounds

03-19-2017 11:24 PM by Ron Aylor | 9 comments »

Hollows and Rounds –  I have not had much shop time over the last couple of weeks. Actually I have had no shop time … I’ve been down with the flu! I traveled to Maryland two weeks ago and must have pick up the bug at the airport. I’m thankful I got a flu shot at the end of last year … no telling where I’d be had I not. But at any rate … I’m now back amongst the living! As I mentioned earlier, the horizontal frame members of Lynnsay’s Prie ...

Road Grader #4: Rippers and blade added

03-12-2017 12:49 AM by Pjonesy | 12 comments »

Sorry this has taken a while, I have had a few distractions lately. This first photo shows the rippers in place for a trial fitting before a final sanding and oiling. The parts need to be oiled separately and allowed to dry before assembly to prevent sticking. This next photo shows the ripper bar and how the teeth are attached. Note that the ripper teeth are in dark Walnut and that each one has 2 parts. 1 is the ripper itself and in the front of that is a very small wedge also from dark ...

• Lynnsay's Prie Dieu #4: Mortise and Tenon Joints

03-04-2017 12:46 AM by Ron Aylor | 7 comments »

Mortise and Tenon Joints –  I’ve spent the last couple of days in the shop laying out mortises …  ... and cutting tenons.  The visible part of the frame is of 7/4 stock. That part of the frame under the kneeling platform will be constructed using 3/4 inch stock. I will work on those mortise and tenon joints later. So, with the visible members of the frame completed …   ... it is time to step into an area of woodworking that, to be honest, I have not had much practice. ...

Giving the boys some exercise on some new wood

02-26-2017 10:29 PM by Mike54Ohio | 3 comments »

Some new wood arrived today for upcoming projects and I thought it was time for some of my kids to get some exercise. So I broke out the no 5 and no 4 for a little curling and shaving work. I am not totally sure what projects the wood will end up as, except initially a couple cutting boards I promised some relatives recently. I got some cherry, curly cherry, walnut, hickory and jatoba. All nice stuff-looking forward to playing around with it soon.

• Lynnsay's Prie Dieu #3: Rip Saw Tune-up and Frame Members

02-26-2017 12:59 AM by Ron Aylor | 4 comments »

Rip Saw Tune-up and Frame Members –  I finished turning the legs a couple of days ago. I think they turned out quite nicely. If not viewed directly side by side they seem to match well enough. Not bad for a spring pole lathe!  Given the frame members are coming from the same 7/4 cherry board that I took the four turning blanks and the four legs of my Hepplewhite Stand ... I thought perhaps it was time to give my rip saw a little tune-up. I made a few passes with my shop made saw jointer...

Exposed Finger Joint Box #3: The Lid

02-22-2017 08:28 PM by splintergroup | 9 comments »

The lid is the most “visible” part of these boxes. I’ve been making mitered frames with panel centers. Some times a mirror on the inside, other times I use veneer. Options would be to make a panel similar to the base or choose another arrangement that draws the eye. For this box, I chose a veneered panel with a mitered frame. As with the base, the dimensions of the inside of the top frame are identical to the dimensions of the box body interior (6” x 8R...

Exposed Finger Joint Box #2: The base

02-22-2017 05:44 PM by splintergroup | 1 comment »

The base of this box is where anyone can “go wild” with design options. The basics are simple, a frame with lap joints, filled with a plywood panel. The feet are simple squares. A pdf file with dimensions for the base can be found here The design allows for the base to have 1/2” of exposure along its perimeter with the box, basically it aligns flush with the boxes inside dimensions.A felt covered plywood piece fits into a routed shelf to seal off the box bottom. Th...

• Lynnsay's Prie Dieu #2: Replication in a Cold Dark Shop

02-18-2017 10:14 PM by Ron Aylor | 10 comments »

Replication in a Cold Dark Shop –  Looks like it’s going to be another cold rainy day in Lilburn …  ... well, not too cold. It’s 50° in the shop and I thought, Replication in a Moderately Cool Dark Shop, was too wordy a title.  But at any rate, with one leg complete it was time to start making copies. I decided to spend a bit more time rounding out the next leg on the bench, which I hoped would make less work at the lathe.  But wait! Looks like I was a bit over zealous...
