I tried so many ways to make spokes for the backs of my windsor chairs. I struggled with draw knives, spoke shaves, dowel makers, the lathe, and never got good results. After thinking hard on the problem, I figured out a mechanized way to crank them out easily! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IkjAuZ3NAr8

(we won’t discuss how old this idea is, other than to say it’s older than some uf your fathers!)

And here is the latest photo of the proje...
After creating a program to calculate dimensions and cutting angles and designing and building a jig to make the cuts with, I was ready to put things into practice. My first trial was with some old (30+years) cedar fence pickets. I wanted an old “barnwood” 3-D star. I quickly decided that even though the wood was cheap (free), it varied greatly in thickness, even within one piece, and it was extremely brittle and splintered easily when cut. Needless to say, I wasn’t pl...
How do you post sketchup drawings to the site for projects?
Hello Readers! Recently I had asked readers to suggest a few new projects for ideas for my blog, Pallet Craft!
