Tonight I’m replacing my weekly shop update with a Live stream at 4:30pm Pacific Time from my shop with an update on the Gamble House Rocking Chair and a live Q&A Session. You can tune here on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Sjx0VWKRYI
For years I’ve wanted to build the Gamble House Living Room’s Rocking Chair. I was lucky enough to be able to visit the Gamble House and get an up-close-and-personal view of the rocker as part of my research. Since the beginning of this year I’ve been working on the sketchup plans and testing out various templates to see if the shapes I’ve come up with are in proportion and true to the original chair. I start this project in mid May and created a Playlist of all ...
For my entry in the Summers Woodworking Third Annual Creative 2 X 4 Contest I chose to make a plant stand which has the form of a plant! Here’s the link to the “youtube video”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGo0_-mM1ZQ It’s the first video I’ve ever posted, in fact, the first to ever leave my recording device. Thanks for looking in and have a wonderful day all you Lumber Jocks.
Hello everyone,The router station is finished and the video is now on YouTube. The build was pretty simple and it incorporates the new Dowelmax Router Lift System. We will be releasing another video soon showing the router lift installation more in depth. Check out the video. Don’t forget to subscribe to our channel. Here is a link to the video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g82VL7jL2ss
I milled the leg and spacers/support block out of the same chunk of oak. The screw and nut are the remnants of what I bought for my end vise. A cove cut on the table saw and an 3/8” round over gave me the basic profile. I smoothed it out of with a whatever rasp and file I had on hand. Then marked and mortised for the nut. I’ll probably put a dab of epoxy on final assembly of the nut to make sure to hold it captive. It’s damn good fit if I say so myself. ...
I needed an end vise for ma bench. So I built one. White oak was the hardest wood I had on hand in a useable quantity. I’ll try to keep it short. Didn’t have a large enough piece for the chop(?) but I had 2 that I really liked. So I joined them with a sliding dovetail. Made with table saw, chisel and a home made router plane (the block of oak with the Allen wrench sticking out). I cut rabbets into the bottom guide rails simply because I bought a new to me plow plane. It ...
I left off with some cypress jointed and planed for the stretchers with a loose idea of what I wanted to do. I was originally hoping to do a “loopy” sort of deal (like the loopy infill), but I’d need to invest in a router guide bushing set and make or buy some templates and bits. In the end, I just did this Which translates to this. After milling the stretchers and the dados in the legs, I went ahead and glued the legs in first. Then the stretchers. Then a little purpleheart...
As my “Honey-Do” and client projects wind down a little before it really gets cold here in Swellendam, I have at last made a start on my build. A few weeks of regular scrounging at my local tip has yielded some good lumber and adding this to my off cut stack, I think that I have enough lumber to do the job. Buying the hardware kit and plans from ASFM at $500.00 means I would have been into about ZAR6,500.00 before I even made a start. So…..enter “Shipwright” w...

Day two started with the walk up this path to the shop. After I said how pretty it was, I thought I should prove it with the pictures. Here’s the view from the screened in porch that connects Lonnie’s home and the shop, and our lunch spot. Alright, enough of the tour, get back to work! My next task was to clean up the legs, apron show surfaces and rails with a hand plane. A low angle plane with a 50 degree blade was the recommended tool. Although I brought my Lie-Nielsen...
