Hello all, Just wanted to touch base with you all and let you know that I am in NH taking another class with Mike Dunbar in beautiful snowy Hampton. I arrived from PA in the early evening yesterday after 60 degree weather only to wake up to a snowy morning. The funny part is that I loaded my road bike into my car in case I would get some riding in on the beautiful coast…not. We worked on the seat and the crest today and I believe we will be finishing the seat and legging up the chai...
Here my husband is leveling the bottom so we can start getting it down to the right height. My daughter Scooter helping clean the bark out of the crevices
Here is the second coffee table base which we are going to be working on, this one will ship to Norway as well and it will have a glass top
I just finished my drafting/desk and finally brought it into the house this evening. This was a great project to make and there were two new techniques I used on this project, so I learned a lot. As part of the design for this desk I decided that I wanted a slight taper and curve to the legs and I wanted a deep red Mahogany color. After making a template for the legs I contemplated how to cut each leg out, the fastest way would have been to either use a flush trim bit with a router agains...
I had to get on here tonight and post a picture of the legs for my eight year olds new bed. I am using a design from Wood Magazine that I have made one change too and that was the legs. If you have seen the plans for this bed they give you an option of bunking the bed and due to the ceiling height in his room I will pass on that. They cut out where the mortises are located for the rails and then laminated three boards together to get the finished 2 1/4 inch thickness. So my change is the use ...
Well, I’m finally back to my Bombe’ chest again. Sorry for the wait but I came to realize that my carving skills left alot to be desired. As a matter of fact they were practically none exsistant! So here are some more pics please exscuse the bad B&C feet.
Well I new this wouldn’t last. but it was great as long as it did, What I’m talking about is my wood sorce was a friend of mine worked at a factory that received there inventory with 1/8”, 1/4” and 1/2” plywood, and so he was able to pick up truck loads of it. Believe it or not, it was really nice wood. Beautiful grain, and I coulkd actually fit the pictures to the wood. Would you believe I lost his Phone number I have been trying to get ahoad of him, to get anot...
hers the start, it’s going to be a long hard build. but i know if it was easy everybody would do it!!
I’m making a credenza based on a design (“Reflect storage”) by Soren Rose Studio I saw on a website (http://www.finnishdesignshop.fi/huonekalut-kirjahyllyt-reflect-lipasto-p-5098.html). The drawer fronts are like propellers. I have never done anything similar, and lacking any instructions I decided to make them like this. I considered routing instead of table sawing the rough shape, but for some reason felt more comfortable with the saw. Please comment on possible easier ...
