Legacy Project: The Dundas Rocking Chair #1: The Backstory plus Gluing Up Backslats

607 days ago by Lee Barker | 1 comment »

He promised his grandchildren, now young adults, a rocking chair. This was to be a delightful part of his retirement. He built three, all from the same plan and then, sadly, he died. His widow commissioned me to build the fourth. She still had all the templates and plans and the build narrative, plus more of the same hard rock maple he had used before. I opted to cut and mill two sets of parts, looking to build another in the near future, plus allowing me a little comfortable fallbac...

Building a Thos. Moser Design New Gloucester Rocking Chair #1: Reproducing a Design

653 days ago by DustyMark | 5 comments »

I recently started a major chair-building project and thought it might be fun to document the process as a series of blog entries. So, here we go… My BackgroundI started woodworking in seventh-grade woodshop about 38 years ago. I began pursuing this wonderful hobby in earnest in 1986 and was fortunate to catch the wave of woodworking information put out by magazines such as Woodsmith, Fine Woodworking, and American Woodworker. I collected a significant personal library of books and...

Quick Fix? #2

663 days ago by greg48 | 2 comments »

It’s been just over 3 months since I first posted this blog to fix the wife’s patio rocker. It was so daunting that I put it out in the yard and busied myself with a couple of new projects, but it kept haunting me.

Well, guilt ridden I am reporting that I did get back, just in time for the Fall/Winter season. I had to re-manufacture four replacement pieces with round mortise/tenon j...

After a couple of attempts, the best method for me is to rough shape all pieces between the band saw, shaper, and belt sander before fitting. Once fit and g...
