Doweled Chair Repair #1: Pair of Antique Doweled Chairs

150 days ago by DrDirt | 4 comments »

My wifes grandfather was an avid woodworker in La Canada California. He owned and founded Lincoln Lumber in Pasadena. My wife received a pair of chairs, with rotted out leather seats, and a pretty rough finish. The chairs spent the past 60 years or so in a steel Shipping container/storage unit outside Palmdale. This is the intact-ish one the other is laying in pieces sanded beside it. One of the features I really like is that he made the barley twist on the front legs run opposite d...

Intarsia Draft Hoarse

151 days ago by bfairok | 0 comments »

Yes I did use a pattern gotten out of one of the recent ScrollSaw Magazines. Made 2 copies of overall pattern, one to use as a guide when placing the cut pieces together and keeping them in order, the other to make numerous copies on my home printer to attach to the selected woods by using clear shelf paper with glue on one side found at Home Depot. These then are cut out to match any adjoining piece and placed on my master copy. Once completed with cut outs, creat the different depths you...

Projects, the backstories #3: Open form in oak, day 2, oops day 1 (part deaux) and day 2

155 days ago by PASs | 6 comments »

I didn’t want the first entry to be too long, it was War and Peace just for day 1. So, here’s the rest of day 1 followed by day 2.It’s really just hollowing mostly…hollowing, hollowing, and more hollowing.I stopped the first entry at 9:06 p.m. at about 2 inches depth.9:14 p.m. It’s not brain surgery…a long handled, a study tool rest, wood hitting the cutter head, me hanging on the back of the handle. Down to 4 inches in 8 minutes. The Sovereign can r...

Projects, the backstories #2: Open form in oak, day 1

155 days ago by PASs | 7 comments »

Seth (my daughter’s boyfriend) does yard work for spending money and got some oak logs for me (about 4,000 pounds worth).I decided to try an open form with a (small) piece of it.Since it was green it was heavier than I wanted to try lifting onto the lathe. Besides that’s why I have a chain hoist and trolley. Seth was doing the hoisting…lots of pulling to bring it up…but he’s young. Initial mount to the headstock is a 4” faceplate, the biggest I’...

My Three Compasses

157 days ago by cpine | 2 comments »

For me, when someone makes a project that I have shared, it is the ultimate flattery. I hope the two youtube woodworkers feel the same as I make there designs of these fine tools for my shop. Special thanks go out to John Heisz and Peter Brown for providing plans and/or videos of these projects. Today I make three different designs of compass’s. I have needed a compass in the shop for a long time and some recent projects this need has arisen. SO today I am going to make three differen...

Kitchen Shelf: Step By Step #1: The support units

161 days ago by Greg Guarino | 2 comments »

We have more kitchen stuff than fits in our cabinets. We decided that a really large shelf could serve to hold some of the nicer-looking pieces, opening up room for the more utilitarian stuff behind closed doors. This started as a simple, innocent slab of wood on some store-bought brackets, but got waylaid in the design process. :) Here’s the design It’s big, about 94” long by 12” deep. It also incorporates two techniques I haven’t tried before (I’...

Plow plane restore

168 days ago by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Have cleaned the body’s sides of old nasty varnish. Using just a hand plane set as fine as I could set it. and then flattened to sole with a #78 rebate plane. Seems the was a LOT of wear and tear near the front Now, it is all flat and square to the skate. Skate has been ccleaned up a bit. It will remain on the plane, since things might move a bit if it comes off. Fence was also cleaned up, to remove all the old varnish. The rods had a problem, though. Both had spl...
