LOOKING FOR HELP #1: Need a replacement leg for my chaise lounge

1 day ago by JanKossen | 1 comment »

Dear AllAprox. 10 years ago, I purchased this chaise lounge, while living in Hong Kong, at a Maitland Smith Shop. Having moved around the world, I am now back in Switzerland…. and my poor chaise lounge has finally said “no more” to all the shipping it had to withstand. A leg has now broken – and its impossible to find anyone who can replicate the broken leg. I have received a letter from Mailtland smith, confirming that they cannot help me (no spare parts available)....

Traditional Woodworking Tours #10: Middleton Plantation Workshop Tour

6 days ago by WoodAndShop | 3 comments »

In my above video I share my recent tour of the traditional carpenter & cooper workshop in at Middleton Place, a former plantation near Charleston, South Carolina. Sorry, the video is a little shaky. But fortunately my photos below are not! Ahhh, what could be better than a traditional workshop in a heavenly location like this? (pssst…ignore the aligators) Nobody was manning their workshop station while I poked my head into this workshop, so I just gave myself a tour. I ...

Native American Indian Flute with an Australian twist #2: Making the flute

12 days ago by icemanhank | 4 comments »

I have a couple of pics so far. I had to make a join in the timber so I dowelled it together at the block of the flute. I think the next step is to join the pieces together and start shaping the outside. I have heard it is a good idea to finish the inside of the SAC with a waterproof finish to stop any condensation getting in there and ruining the timber but am unsure if I should do this or not.

CC's Book Case #7: TaDUM!

15 days ago by SquintyPolock | 4 comments »

Well, 14 months later, CC’s 8th grade graduation present is complete (She graduated last June, ugh). At work, I like to say that “Excuses + No Results = No Results”. So, I will spare you my excuses, as they are plentiful. But, I finally got her done. CC asked the case remain unfinished, as she plans to paint & decorate it herself. I figure I spent a total of about 30 man-hours and about $150 in materials on the project. My wife love’s this bookcase ...

Some of you all asked for this, hope you are not sorry. You can look back to my projects to see my first which is a teardrop style. This will be a hourglass style made from walnut and maple.Started the day by drawing a plan then cutting and planing some walnut for the sides 1 7/8 by appx. 34 by .130 which will be .125 after sanding. Since this is a hourglass style you need a form for the steam bent sides I made the form from some 2×4’s glued side to side for the width and added a p...
