Wegner inspired dining chair #3: Shaping the back seat

17 days ago by kaerlighedsbamsen | 9 comments »

Feeling that a lot of uncertainties have been cleared away in my last post it is now time to take on the most challenging part of the project: shaping the back rest. This is where tings are getting a bit complicated. Shapes in 3d is difficult to visualize and shaping takes a long time. Having done a series of sketches i had a semi vague idea where i wanted to end:In order to work fast i decided to start using mdf for the first tests. Shaping in a combination of freehand and using divide...

The Board. A Tongue In Cheek Essay...... With Pictures Part l

18 days ago by Gene Howe | 28 comments »

Recently, there was a bit of concern expressed regarding a board that was posted as a project. it got me to thinking (a rare occurrence) that some folks might not understand or appreciate the dedication, skill and work that is involved in the making of a board. Hence this blog/tutorial. First, lets define the term for those not familiar with boards. Most authorities agree that a board is a flat slab of wood or other material for some specific purpose. For our purposes, we’ll limit th...

Lets rock:Pulled out m...

Wegner inspired dining chair #1: Getting inspired & first test

22 days ago by kaerlighedsbamsen | 4 comments »

I have always admired wegners furniture. Especially his chairs. They are so “final” designs. Nothing to improve, nothing to remove. Just right. For a long time a have known that one day i wanted to build something in his style. But as simple they look his furniture is nothing but simple to make. And i felt that i needed a certain level of skill to give it a try. The past two years i have built a lot of projects and tried to raise the difficult level a little each time.Last week...

Why I Buy Used Power Tools

23 days ago by TheWoodenOyster | 6 comments »

Why I Buy Used Power Tools Alright, below is my spiel on why I buy used tools. Just like the rest of my posts, I am not claiming this to be gospel truth, but this is my thought process when it comes to making large power tool purchases. Hopefully this won’t overlap with my craigslist blog too much, but I feel they are different topics and each deserve their own post. When I acquired a real shop (a garage) for the first time about 18 months ago, I happily set out to look at purchasing my...

SawStop or not? #4: Ugh--Evil SawStop, and an industry that you think loves you (but they really hate your fingers)

29 days ago by Rob | 19 comments »

By now everyone knows SawStop has evil lobbyists and lawyers trying to force their technology on us. Like many people, I was really wrapped up in this lobbying issue. For those who aren’t familiar with the effort, SawStop was trying to push through a government regulation that would require an advanced safety system like SawStop’s brake (oh, how convenient—SawStop makes those!) to be included on all new table saws. To-date such a feature has not been forced on anyone ...

SawStop or not? #3: The cheapest health insurance you can buy?

29 days ago by Rob | 5 comments »

In a recent thread about tool recommendations for a new shop, I made a comment that a SawStop saw is the cheapest health insurance you can buy. Most people don’t plan on cutting off their fingers on their table saws, and many woodworkers are quick to point out that the likelihood of any individual woodworker being seriously injured by a table saw on any given day is pretty slim. Frankly, I agree with both those comments and don’t intend to argue against them, but I do want to cl...

The Ever Evolving Workshop #1: New Delta Unisaw with 52" Rip, Incra TS-LS and LEFT Side Router Table!

30 days ago by emrhappy | 5 comments »

I wanted to show you guys and gals my new setup. I recently purchased a Delta 36-L352 to replace MY broke down POS grizzly G0715P. I say that about the grizzly because like many others MY G0715P had a .020 deflection in the back of the blade when I raised it up or down! There was no setting that saw blade parallel with the miter slot. Grizzly wouldn’t stand behind it and said the trunions were probably broke and that I had the ‘wrong saw’ for building cabinets or anyth...
