Glued up, Laminated, Sculpted, OSB, Rocker Build

03-03-2014 11:56 PM by luv2learn | 15 comments »

This rocker is a James Cole creation. He has been good enough to share his plans, for free, with all who would like to build this beauty. You can find them here The first thing I did was to save his plan pages using the”save image as” function since the plans are not in a downloadable format. Once I had saved all the pages I imported the two plan pages into Matthias Wandel’s Big Print software. Since Mr. Cole drew his plans on a 1” grid is was easy to scale them...

Building a Houseful of Furniture #3: Living Room and Dining Room

03-24-2013 08:15 PM by DustyMark | 4 comments »

Watch this video to take a short tour of the furniture I’ve made in my living room and dining room. These rooms are the first thing you see when you walk into our house. Unfortunately, the living room had very little furniture that I’d made. My wife and I came up with a furniture plan to resolve that and I’m well on my way to filling the living room with hand-crafted furniture. The rocking chairs are quite comfortable and I love the sweeping lines. The foot stools...

Building a Thos. Moser Design New Gloucester Rocking Chair #23: Final Thoughts

02-22-2013 05:22 AM by DustyMark | 8 comments »

Video Watch this video to see two completed rocking chairs as I share my final thoughts about this wonderful Thos. Moser design. Arm Modification The arm spread of the first chair was too wide for my wife. The back flexes slightly and ideally the arm is positioned to lightly brush against the side of the back spindle. I had already drilled the holes on the second seat blank, so I plugged those holes and drilled new holes with less splay. Unfortunately, I failed to sp...

Building a Thos. Moser Design New Gloucester Rocking Chair #14: Evaluating the Prototype Top Crest

01-03-2013 07:48 PM by DustyMark | 2 comments »

Ready to Cut Final Top Crest? I finished turning the 14 back spindles on the first rocking chair over the past three days. As I finished each spindle, I inserted it into the seat. Once I had the middle four spindles completed, I began inserting them into the top crest as well. The prototype top crest is only 1 1/2” tall. The final top crest is 2 5/8” tall and will be cut from some scraps of 12/4 cherry that I had saved since completing my pencil post bed almost 20 years ago...

Legacy Project: The Dundas Rocking Chair #2: Pile o' Parts Plus a comparison of the Dundas to the Maloof

11-24-2012 07:54 PM by Lee Barker | 0 comments »

With my limited experience in the world of rocking chairs, I’m inclined at this point to divide them into two groups: Armed and no arms. Of those two, the first group has two subgroups: Arm integral with the front leg, and Not. The Windsor Rocker is a fine example of the arm and leg not being integral. The most elegant of the other subgroup is the Maloof chair. Much has been written here and elsewhere about this iconic design. Let me just add that, having built one, I c...

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

11-24-2012 07:24 PM 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...

In the wood shop today #15: Re-sawing some beautiful Walnut for seats
