Adirondack Chair #5: Legs, Rose and Resawing

207 days ago by Scott R. Turner | 0 comments »

Made some good progress on the chair this weekend despite the usual competition for my time and attention. One task was to make the front leg supports and join them with the long runners. In a typical Adirondack chair these are just screwed together (and that’s how I made the practice chair) but I decided to do a half-lap joint which I’ll eventually decorate with some pegs. The layout of this isn’t straightforward, since the long runners are at about a 20 degree angle to ...

Adirondack Chair #3: Mock Up Done

216 days ago by Scott R. Turner | 3 comments »

It’s been a busy week, but I managed to find the time to bend the chair arms for the mock-up chair and see about attaching them. I also trimmed the back slats to a gentle arc. Here are a couple of views: and As you can see from the line of holes up near the top of the back, I had the top back brace too high and had to move it down. While I had the brace off, I also shaped it to the curve of the back. I did this with a drawknife and spokeshave. The drawknife is certain...

Resawing - The boards have eyes...

582 days ago by David Craig | 16 comments »

One of the pleasant things about moving from a beginner to a more intermediate stage in woodworking is that you start paying attention to things you didn’t really focus on before. My work tonight, for example, involves a little more thought about grain orientation in glue-ups. I am still working on cutting boards, I have to have a dozen made in the next week or so. As I am moving along, I have had to give some more concentrated thought in regards to the wood pieces I salvaged and how...

Resawing Face-Off

745 days ago by Scott R. Turner | 4 comments »

I recently bought a plane blade and a marking knife from Japan Woodworker and almost on a whim bought a double-edged Japanese saw as well. I’ve since been using it regularly ever since and have basically given up on Western-style saws for my cutting needs. Recently I made a spill plan for my father-in-law. I bought an old skew rabbet plane off of Ebay, re-soled it (mostly to close up the mouth), and added a fence set for 3/4” stock. With the blade set for a medium-heavy cut ...

Done: Simple Headboard Build

887 days ago by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 129 comments »

Walnut Headboard Build A quick project that is needed but is also a nice mental diversion from the daily grind. Material pulled from inventory is (very) rough cut ‘wormy walnut’ sapwood that isn’t good for much, but is something around 5/4 thick and is long enough (and wide enough) to do the job before me. Using this for the rails, top and bottom. I’ll joint one edge, work up the face, then rip the piece before deciding on what to do with any design element. ...

Building Falling Waters Lamps #3: Let'r Rip!

1164 days ago by HerbC | 0 comments »

So, I built the resaw fence yesterday. I got off work a bit early this afternoon and decided to resaw the lumber for the shades. The lumber is a full inch thick and eleven inches wide. My initial plan was to rip as deep as I could on the tablesaw and then use a handsaw to finish the rip. So I started by cutting the lumber to reasonable lengths and then making the first cuts: Well, after ripping as deeply as possible I attacked the remaining portion of the cut with my trusty pull...

Woodworking projects under way. #1: Resawing a dry 2x and watching it twist....

1211 days ago by dbhost | 11 comments »

I am working on a project for another forum, and I have to resaw some 2x construction grade stock for that project. Mind you, I have no moisture meter, but the stuff has been in my garage/ shop now for 3 years, if it is ever going to be dry, now is the time… Anyway, so I get the stuff all set up, get the band saw set up, and the board i started working with was straight as a… well board when I started. Unfortunately when I finished, you could almost watch the thing curl up like a ...
