Traditional Chinese Woodworking #8: The Huntington Gardens

846 days ago by chscholz | 7 comments »

Last weekend I had the the distinct pleasure to visit the Huntington Gardens in LA, CA. Unfortunately the Japanese garden was closed for maintenance.

I am sure almost everybody knows the shape of the Chinese roofline work.or Chinese lattice work. The Huntington Gardens also...

Garden swing #1: The plan

1058 days ago by benihun | 0 comments »

The first thing in creating is imagining. The best way for me to develeop my design floating in my head is to create a 3D model of it on the computer, so I made one in Google SketchUp, which can be viewed and downloaded also. Here is a perspective view of it: Those triangle shaped things between the top and the seat are the boundaries of the chains the seat will be hanging on. The large grid-looking thing represents the rope net for the kids to climb on. The detailed plan for ...

As any maker will tell you: if you don’t collect the stuff somewhere, you don’t get the idea to use it. The pr...

1149 days ago by Paul Sellers | 1 comment »

Red oak is known for its hard and heavy heartwood that has substantial strength ...
