• Lynnsay's Prie Dieu #13: It Is Finished

05-11-2017 11:27 PM by Ron Aylor | 17 comments »

It Is Finished –  Over the last few weeks shop time has been a rare commodity, due to dark, gloomy weather; yet, after a most enjoyable outing with my bride in the rain … I managed to procure hinges and a lock. Eventually, the rain stopped and the clouds parted to let the sun shine through. So, it was back to the shop to wrap my brain around putting the desk together. After a cup of hot tea, and an hour or so of chopping …  ... and wedging …  ... then chopping and wed...

• Lynnsay's Prie Dieu #4: Mortise and Tenon Joints

03-04-2017 12:46 AM by Ron Aylor | 7 comments »

Mortise and Tenon Joints –  I’ve spent the last couple of days in the shop laying out mortises …  ... and cutting tenons.  The visible part of the frame is of 7/4 stock. That part of the frame under the kneeling platform will be constructed using 3/4 inch stock. I will work on those mortise and tenon joints later. So, with the visible members of the frame completed …   ... it is time to step into an area of woodworking that, to be honest, I have not had much practice. ...

• Lynnsay's Prie Dieu #3: Rip Saw Tune-up and Frame Members

02-26-2017 12:59 AM by Ron Aylor | 4 comments »

Rip Saw Tune-up and Frame Members –  I finished turning the legs a couple of days ago. I think they turned out quite nicely. If not viewed directly side by side they seem to match well enough. Not bad for a spring pole lathe!  Given the frame members are coming from the same 7/4 cherry board that I took the four turning blanks and the four legs of my Hepplewhite Stand ... I thought perhaps it was time to give my rip saw a little tune-up. I made a few passes with my shop made saw jointer...

• Lynnsay's Prie Dieu #2: Replication in a Cold Dark Shop

02-18-2017 10:14 PM by Ron Aylor | 10 comments »

Replication in a Cold Dark Shop –  Looks like it’s going to be another cold rainy day in Lilburn …  ... well, not too cold. It’s 50° in the shop and I thought, Replication in a Moderately Cool Dark Shop, was too wordy a title.  But at any rate, with one leg complete it was time to start making copies. I decided to spend a bit more time rounding out the next leg on the bench, which I hoped would make less work at the lathe.  But wait! Looks like I was a bit over zealous...

• Lynnsay's Prie Dieu #1: Getting the Jump on Lent

02-14-2017 11:36 AM by Ron Aylor | 11 comments »

Getting the Jump on Lent –  Lent, an Old English word meaning “spring,” the time of lengthening days, is that season of the Church between Ash Wednesday and Easter. During the season of Lent, many Christians commit to fasting or giving up certain types of luxuries as a form of penance. There is however another school of thought, one of taking on or adding a Lenten spiritual discipline, such as reading a daily devotional or praying through a Lenten calendar, to draw oneself n...

05-25-2015 03:17 AM by CharlieK | 0 comments »

One cool thing I saw at the Handworks event was this guy using a Treadle Spring Pole Lathe. His name is Jarrod Stone Dahl. I have a link to his website in the video’s description on YouTube. Anyway, I shot this very short video of him. I am also trying some new things with my YouTube videos. Please let me know what you like or don’t like about it! Thanks!Charlie View on YouTube

The Slowest Farm Shop #5: Progress on Shaving horse, spring pole lathe, and a mystery tool...

07-24-2009 11:17 PM by Will Mego | 10 comments »

Well, I promised pictures last time, and I have some..I started on the spring pole lathe, which is my big project for this summer/fall, and I decided after much goings on to not make a treadle lathe, meaning in this case continuous motion, but a traditional spring pole lathe, where the piece rotates once or more (hopefully many more) times, then back again. Why? I was inspired by a couple things, like poverty and such, but also after doing months of research into it, it’s just what appe...
