Tonight I’m replacing my weekly shop update with a Live stream at 4:30pm Pacific Time from my shop with an update on the Gamble House Rocking Chair and a live Q&A Session. You can tune here on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Sjx0VWKRYI
For years I’ve wanted to build the Gamble House Living Room’s Rocking Chair. I was lucky enough to be able to visit the Gamble House and get an up-close-and-personal view of the rocker as part of my research. Since the beginning of this year I’ve been working on the sketchup plans and testing out various templates to see if the shapes I’ve come up with are in proportion and true to the original chair. I start this project in mid May and created a Playlist of all ...

I milled the leg and spacers/support block out of the same chunk of oak. The screw and nut are the remnants of what I bought for my end vise. A cove cut on the table saw and an 3/8” round over gave me the basic profile. I smoothed it out of with a whatever rasp and file I had on hand. Then marked and mortised for the nut. I’ll probably put a dab of epoxy on final assembly of the nut to make sure to hold it captive. It’s damn good fit if I say so myself. ...

Fiberglass Experiment I applied a layer of fiberglass cloth to the plywood hull panels before work, betting they would be “green” cured in the afternoon upon my return. Using Raka 127 Resin and Raka 350 hardener at 72 degrees and 48% humidity the fiberglass was set perfectly in about 8 hours. It was bonded, yet flexible enough to not restrict the plywood from curving around the hull ribs. The epoxy is wet into the fiberglass cloth with a foam roller. I never pay...
Hello again, I left off last time with the design and materials for the kitchen utensil box. I started by milling the Padauk for the four corner posts. These posts are 1” square, while the piece of Padauk I purchased is 8/4. To avoid excess waste, I decided to resaw off about 5/8” for later use. I primarily used my table saw with a thin kerf blade, but since the board was about 6” wide, and my max blade height is 2”, I had to complete the operation by hand. Below is...
