• Fr. Chad's Prie Dieu #15: The Top

01-12-2018 08:41 PM by Ron Aylor | 9 comments »

The Top –  I haven’t had much shop time since my last blog post. The weather was not on my side. If it wasn’t dark and rainy, it was just too cold to be in the shop. Besides that I was down with the flu from the day after Christmas until just a few days ago. If it isn’t one thing it’s another. The last few days have been great, though. I was able to glue up and smooth the top …                   … and get the trim pieces and corners ready for gadrooning.        ...

• Fr. Chad's Prie Dieu #14: Click … Swoosh

12-11-2017 08:07 PM by Ron Aylor | 9 comments »

Click … Swoosh - Before tackling the eight panel door, I thought I would give my newly made lamb’s tongue template a work out.  After locating the stopped chamfers with chalk, laying out the lamb’s tongue(s) was a breeze.  … not too shabby … if I say so myself!                 Aside from the cocobolo butterflies, these stopped chamfers and lamb’s tongues will serve to reference the Trinity without altering the over-all style.                 As I was thinking about the drawe...

• Fr. Chad's Prie Dieu #13: Two Become One

12-06-2017 04:35 PM by Ron Aylor | 5 comments »

Two Become One –  I thought I would take advantage of the unseasonably warm weather and glue up the upper case. First I attached the barley twist accent pieces to the front frame with wood screws …                  … these pieces are proud of the frame by 3/8” as they overlap the side pieces.                 I applied the General Finishes Medium Brown Dye/Stain concoction to all the upper case pieces and once dry … glued it up!  The false bottom I mentioned in an earlier post cons...

• Fr. Chad's Prie Dieu #12: Upper Case

12-01-2017 09:56 PM by Ron Aylor | 6 comments »

Upper Case - Before any assembly of the upper case could take place, I needed to cut a few dados for shelves. Once located, I struck knife lines for the thickness of the shelf stock. I then used a chisel to accentuate the knife lines … creating a nice little trough for …  … the gent saw to cut the shoulders of the dado(s) ...  … and a chisel to bust loose the waste.  I then went to town with my Old Woman’s Tooth … cleaning out the dado(s) to a 1/4” depth …  … all the while k...

Twin screw vise #1: The front chop

11-23-2017 05:20 PM by Dave Polaschek | 9 comments »

This winter I want to start cutting dovetails, doing a dovetail a day for a month to build my skills. In preparation for that, I’m adding a twin-screw vise to my bench, using the Veritas mechanism. I’m planning to make the jaws three feet wide, with a full 24 inches (minus a little) between the screws, so I can also use this vise to hold wood I’m resawing with my frame saw. Since the front chop is going to be the most visible bit (even though a lot of it will be covered b...

• Fr. Chad's Prie Dieu #11: Panel Risen

11-18-2017 10:06 PM by Ron Aylor | 34 comments »

Panel Risen –  To check my math one more time  I did a quick dry fit … I think it’s starting to look like a Prie Dieu!                 Now … time to start raising this panel. First I cut saw kerfs for the various steps in the profile …                 … then using a 1/8” chisel I removed waste to create the first step-down.                                 Readjusting the kerfing plane and repeating the process, I created two  step-downs. I used a bench plane to hog out most ...
