Roubo Hybrid Bench from start to finish #3: Over My Dead Body

05-17-2012 10:19 AM by Jamie Speirs | 11 comments »

Ok, here is the update Shirley found out about the visit Now her words were “Over my dead body your building a bench You can build a Kitchen first” Now I’m not sure of other countries but in Scotland the Over My Dead body is not an Invitation. LoL Last week she wanted a shower instaled. What is wrong with a cloth & basin? Well here is the planed plank, I think it looks great pity there is so little of it. The darker piece at the top ...

Roubo Hybrid Bench from start to finish #2: What I got from what I had

05-16-2012 01:43 PM by Jamie Speirs | 5 comments »

Well the thing I love about wood especially an orphan piece like this one Is that it can only get better, I hope :) It looks huge and if it were not for the flaws It would make a big bench Ok, it aint going to be a 6’ bench If I could only use the full piece I like the idea of one side being rustic The rot on the right hand corner means that I’m going to have to get a much narrower tha the 18” that I hoped for Well I did not s...

Monticello Lap Desk #3: The Second Class Session

05-13-2012 02:34 AM by jcontract | 0 comments »

Back at PFW it was time to cut and assemble the drawer for the desk. That meant half-blind dovetails at the front of the drawer. Mario imparted some wise advice. Always cut at least 2 dovetails with the same material and to the same thickness as you will use in the project. That’ll give you a good feel for the material and how it will react when you cut the real ones. Great advice. Got to work for the first time on a Moxon vice. This thing was awesome! Allows you work to be right ...

Monticello Lap Desk #2: Homework? I thought those days were over!

05-13-2012 02:10 AM by jcontract | 0 comments »

After the first PFW class, Mario assigned us some homework. Recess the writing panels to accept the baize, a material similar to felt on a pool table. Also, we routed and cleaned up a recess to accept the notches for the easel. The recess on the back of one of the writing panels is where the easel will fit when the desk is folded flat. Finally, a shot of the panels being recessed to 1/32”. Done with the Bosch Colt freehand and then the ends were cleaned up with a chisel. ...

Monticello Lap Desk #1: So Small ... But So Tough

05-12-2012 01:00 AM by jcontract | 2 comments »

I’ve attended a few classes at the Philadelphia Furniture Workshop in the past. Classes on Sharpening, hand-cut dovetails, but I never had the chance to take a project class. When the Jefferson Lap Desk was offered, I jumped at the chance. I was looking for a challenge, and boy did I get it. First a little about the desk. The original desk was designed by Thomas Jefferson so that he could write in his coach while traveling between Monticello and Philadelphia. The original is housed i...

So what's it worth?

05-04-2012 12:10 AM by scrimman | 3 comments »

For the longest time I’ve wondered how to answer that question ‘how much is it?’ How do you judge that? I’ve finally gotten down to the point where I’m going to have to just start being a little OCD and start writing it down. Thus far it’s been working ok; I’ve got a couple of celtic crosses I need to carve for a couple of weddings I’ve been invited to. Being that the wood, this time, was free I can concentrate on what it is I do to it…...

05-02-2012 10:44 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Hey! Wait a minute! Isn’t it just starting to get warm out? It is here in Nova Scotia anyway! While most of you are starting to get the garden ready and dreaming of days at the camp or the pool or the beach, I have been sitting here humming Christmas tunes to myself and getting my projects ready for the holiday issue of Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine. I was really happy about the responses I received on the bells yesterday. It seems like many of you are intrigued about...
