In the Shop #4: Inspired to do something new... Hand-cut Dovetails

02-09-2011 05:09 AM by Hoakie | 28 comments »

Is it odd that every time I get a new power tool to perform a task, I get an urge to try and do it by hand as well? Anyway it seems to happen to me a lot. This year I received a dovetail jig for Christmas and was up and running cutting half-blind dovetails in no time. However, I have been wanting to learn techniques working with hand tools for a long time to expand my arsenal. Over the past few weeks I’ve been eying some of the entries to the Winter Challenge, the videos of the Ja...

Gamble House

01-25-2011 08:19 PM by bhack | 3 comments »

While visiting in Southern California I took the opportunity to visit the Gamble House in Pasadena. I really like the Greene and Greene style. The architecture is wonderful. What was very disappointing was the lack of mention of the craftsman that took the designs and crafted the house and furnishing. It still amazes me the lack of appreciation of a craft person. I feel that Peter and John Hall are not mentioned for their craftsmanship enough. Therefore any time I have a discussion abo...

Stickley High Chest #3: Request for advice on dovetailed drawer slides

01-24-2011 08:42 PM by Greg | 1 comment »

I am going to start in on making my dovetail drawer slides today. I haven’t found much info on LJ or the rest of the web on tips, tricks, and rules of thumb. I made up a couple practice slides the other day and they seem to work well (unmounted), but I still have some questions: 1. How many slides (under mounted) should I use? An antique dresser we have uses one down the center and a newer dresser we have has two. The drawer size on both are approximately the same. The drawers ...

If you have been watching any of the news about this , you should have some of a opinion. I look back at the days growing up and I wish that my parents had give me more, Especially when it come to school, I did as little as I had to , just to get through school ,, and over the years I regret that I didn’t do better, but now it’s kind of late at 55 years young. I had the discipline to stay out of trouble and have never be in any encounter with the law, I’m self employed for ...

DragonFly Harp #7: 1/20/2011 S-L-O-W Going

01-20-2011 11:36 PM by Donna Menke | 11 comments »

Days and days of mostly just staring at the dumb thing wondering why- oh why- things did not meet the way they should. Take a little off here- then a little off there- shoot!- think I took some off the wrong side. This was not the way to go.My micro-plane was going to be my salvation, but it may have created more problems than it fixed.Talk about creative clamping! Trying to get all the angles right and everything where it is supposed to be so that the screws in the base will end up in the ri...
