Repairing a hammer handle and refinishing a couple items

11-08-2014 05:02 AM by cpine | 0 comments »

It was one of those days where I was between projects and had several smaller things to get done. I had this older coffee table that really needed some attention nd the wife had placed it on our back porch. I guess she was tired of waiting for me to “get to it” So I refinished the top. I had an older cheap hammer that had a loose head, so I fixed that. I bought a yankee screwdriver at a garage sale and the handle was in bad shape. It is a wood handle and at first I thought about t...

Windsor Chair #1: Windsor Chair #1

11-03-2014 03:00 PM by PeteCollin | 2 comments »

Hello All, I began a Youtube account to show the stages in making windsor style chairs – starting from a tree. I invite you all to come have a look. I have about 40 minutes of footage, and will add videos as my progress with the chair goes. Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLjcQyPlmR1Lx2mnX0Upkm8E-QruOXv2gC

What to do with miscellaneous tools, windsor chair templates, etc...

11-03-2014 02:58 PM by Cozwood2012 | 2 comments »

Kudos to 489TAD….I also find myself as the widow of a master period furniture maker and the daunting task of finding homes for a seemingly endless supply of tools, equipment and keepsakes. Any suggestions on a good forum for sales other than Craigslist or Ebay?????.I have Windsor chair and period furniture templates as well that would be an atrocity to just throw away. Located in Georgia…Thanks for any suggestions/help

Wheel loader T and J Cat 966 #2: Lathe work

10-26-2014 06:51 PM by Dutchy | 2 comments »

It is a time ago I started making the wheels for my T and J wheelloader. A long time I didn,t have time to work on it. But last week I restarted. First I drilled a hole in the wheel with a 50 mm (2”) bore and than turned the wheels as you can see on below picture: Now I could turn the wheel 180 degrees and do the other side: Turning work was done and now I had to do some testings for the groves. I made four wheels from oak and one from beech for the testing work. First I ma...

Fully Off Axis Stem Goblet (work in progress)

10-20-2014 08:06 PM by TannerTurnings | 5 comments »

Here’s a little idea I had last night, & decided to work out a way I could do it. It’s a Fully Off Axis Stemmed Goblet, where the whole of the stem is a half inch (13mm) off set from the cup & the base. To do this, I roughed to round, formed the cup, hollowed out (leaving the walls rather thicker than usual) & finished the inside & outside of the cup. (I should have also finished the shoulder of the stem section too…I’ll know for next time!) I then ...

Kids in the Shop! #10: Entrepreneurial Spirit

10-12-2014 03:20 PM by clieb91 | 6 comments »

I mentioned a few moths ago that my daughter got herself an order for 8 pens. She did a great job and the two clients loved them. We kind of dropped the ball on the farm stand thing but hope to pursue that again after the holidays. For the craft fair season this year my wife and I have two different weekends that have two smaller shows happening so we decided to split up. Since we can’t have the pens that I normally make at both locations my daughter has decided to help take up the slac...

Artemesia - Worlds Largest Craftsman Home

09-28-2014 08:04 PM by Jerry | 13 comments »

You will see some amazing joinery and craftsmanship in this slide show. Great for ideas… An ad man named Leonard Fenton has spent well over two decades now working on Artemesia, reputedly the largest Craftsman house ever built. And it is something. The 13,300-square-foot mansion in L.A.’s Los Feliz neighborhood was built a century ago by Frederick Engstrum, a construction tycoon who built downtown’s lovely Rosslyn Hotel, according to a story last year in Los Angeles Ma...
