Showing at the Museum of the Rockies Fine Woodworking Exhibition

11-13-2012 05:20 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 22 comments »

I was invited to show at a fine woodworking exhibition at the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman, Montana. The show is currently going on now and running 3 months until Jan 27th. There is a total of 25 woodworking artists showing and I am very honored to be counted among them. They are certainly a group of high-caliber artisans. There are also two other LumberJock members also showing at the exhibition – Andy Chidwick and Scott Morrison. It is pretty cool to think that 3 LumberJock ...

Taliesin Desk Build - How's and Why's #11: Moving Along

09-09-2016 01:54 AM by EarlS | 3 comments »

Things finally are moving along, unfortunately, a little too fast in the case of the beveled through tenons on the bottom apron and the long stretchers. I forgot to cut the bevels on the tenons BEFORE I cut the arches. As a result I had to come up with plan B. As you can see from the picture, it entails a long fence on the miter bar and a longer piece of sacrificial wood clamped to the miter bar and the stretcher. Probably not the preferred method for cutting bevels on the tenons, b...

Taliesin Desk Build - How's and Why's #9: Time to Talk Tenons

09-03-2016 01:07 PM by EarlS | 2 comments »

Time to talk tenons. I’ve made tenons using 3 different methods, a router with a straight bit, a stacked dado on the table saw, and a tenoning jig. Tenoning Jig:I discarded the tenoning jig some time back because it was a pain to set up and keep things square. I never could get the miter bar tight but not too tight and keep things running parallel to the blade which made for tenons that were tight on one end and loose on the other. Long tenons were also a problem since the saw blade wil...

Taliesin Desk Build - How's and Why's #10: Arches for Aprons

09-04-2016 02:01 PM by EarlS | 2 comments »

Finally feels like the project is starting to move along. Alex from Glass Heritage just told me the glass for the inserts have been cut. He sent some pictures so I can approve the colors. Meanwhile, I’d better pick up the pace if I want the desk to be complete by the time the glass is ready. Making smooth arches seems to baffle a lot of folks. The problem is that most arches require a combination of a circle with a large radius and just the right amount of flattening the circle...

Taliesin Desk Build - How's and Why's #8: Intermission

08-31-2016 02:40 AM by EarlS | 1 comment »

I’ve been doing everything but woodworking lately. Our oldest daughter started college, high school started, along with the girls swim season. It keeps raining and the grass keep growing necessitating mowing every 3 days or so. A thunderstorm last weekend resulted in a lightning strike on the house behind us (which started a fire) and caused an arc flash when the plug from our computer surge protector blew out of the wall outlet and cracked the outlet, tripped the surge protector, and ...
