I just blogged (with lots of photos) about the Morris Chair I built this past spring. This part 1 goes through most of the build, and part 2 will be finishing, upholstery and stuff. For LJs, I’m also posting a project here too. http://dcwwoodworks.com/blog/2016/6/14/at-last-a-morris-chair (link fixed!) Here’s a few pictures…
In this youtube video https://youtu.be/jzKNAKfbRBk, I got “Challenged” to make Nun-Chucks by Mike from the You-tube channel Kinderhook Woodcraft. Here is a link to his channel:https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQA2XFGZtPJdbmi8I-9X1-g And a link to the challenge video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32g8mq-DEwk This was a fun project to build. And for those who would ask, when hitting the apples my stats were: 5 overall swings – 4 hits – 3 were solid hits and on...
I finally finished the Dining room suite last weekend: I thought that this would have been an easy project that I would have flipped off in a week or two at the most, but it took much longer. Buying somebody else work and then finishing it to your standard´is all very well and good if you know the other person has done a good job, but in this case… Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think we will have any problems with it coming apart, but the method of construction leave...
Started working on my Live Oak Log today, This is some of the heaviest wood I’ve ever dealt with, just moving it by myself is a challenge.Good thing I have a riding mower and trailer , not to mention the adjustable roll around shop tableto be able to get it up on my sawhorses .

Today I made my top by glueing 3 pieces of oak together and sanding it. I did have some tribe making this because it would not fit in the planer so I had to use the handsander to sand it which took much longer. I also made my chore, and to do it, I used the dove cutter and glued the pieces together. I fitted the bottom in and put the false chore front on it and put the handle in. I sanded it and now it looks great in my end table.
I am one of those people who have trouble standing for very long. Although I love woodturning, standing at the lathe for a long period can become very painful. A back support helps some, but even with the support I can still have problems. Taking ibuprofen can extend how long I can stand, but I dislike routinely taking it as it can be hard on the stomach. I first came upon the idea of using a bench rest in an article by Ernie Conover in the May/June 2014 issue of Woodworkers Journal...
This week I got to leg spreaders and I got my lower tails no I use the pocket hole so my screws could go and my legs. Then I got the brad nailer to put on my long rails. Then I did a lot of sanding Here is what I got done this week
