Cranky Sailor Workshop - The retirement chest #1: Initial Stages

05-23-2011 06:43 PM by DynaBlue | 1 comment »

One of my prior Command Master Chiefs flattered my by requesting I build his retirement present, a ‘sea chest’ which would hold not only his shadowbox but also his collection of challenge coins and uniform items. We discussed general plans a few times until I showed him a nice blanket chest from a 2010 Woodworker’s Journal. He wasn’t sure about the arched configuration at first but after reflection it grew on him and I was underway! I love quartersawn oak but ...

Just for Fun... #47: At Last...

05-22-2011 01:00 AM by littlecope | 16 comments »

So anyway, when I was last in the shop I left off here… an unfinished urn…And there it sat… and sat… never to be finished???Older Brother Steve is gone now… and at peace. He’ll have no use for it…Younger Brother Scott called and asked me to give him a hand, moving furniture and things out of Steve’s place a couple of weeks ago… I arrived a little early, in the rain, feeling a little low… But, whatever your beliefs, you have to admit ...

My first homemade rebate plane, Thanks Div

05-02-2011 06:15 PM by lilredweldingrod | 28 comments »

Well, with all the wood planes being made and refurbished, I decided to try my hand on a little rebate plane. I chose the rebate plane to do first because I am learning Mortise and Tenon joinery and some of my tenons needed tuning. My first step was to make the blade. I picked a 1 inch spade bit after checking the prices on some A2 steel. It took a lot of grinding to flatten out the shaft and grind off the shaped drill section. I had some cocobolo that I planned to use but it was just too ...

These types’ of wooden carved swings were used by Kings in their palaces and were considered a sign of royalty and are still considered even today. This type of furniture is a wooden swing with brass chains suspending it from the ceiling of the inside of their home. I glued together three plan...

I had the opportunity to take a few photos last week so here is a selection. Some of the shots are not so good, so please forgive!

White Alder and hand painted leather. Squiggle Back Chair by Richard Henley. Cape beech and hand painted leather. Pink Ivory Inlays on Cape beech by R...

A new dining room set for my wife! #1: I begin at the begining. Where else?

04-18-2011 01:24 AM by GaryK | 13 comments »

Well, I had a couple more things I wanted to make first, but my wife kind of changed my priorities for me. She started out by commenting on how the new ones looked in the store, and then started with how nice a new one would look in our dining room. I took the hint. So, where to start? Well, I asked her what she wanted and I got, “I don’t know, just make something. I trust you.” Hmm… No restrictions! That’s nice. Now what do I want? Chairs would be th...
