There is very little on these chairs that I need to sew on the body. Still, a little might be just enough of an example for some of you. The front of the chair and deck need a bit of sewing. Take a look at this rounded front edge and the old stiches. There are several ways to skin this cat. One is to take off the fabric, undo the stitches then trace the cutouts onto you new fabric. I have to do that sometimes. Let’s get a little adventurous. Since I have a pattern with a center...

I found out about Andrew Crawford via an article somewhere here at Lumerjocks. For those who don’t know, he is a master box maker. I joined his mailing list at fine-boxes.com fine-boxes.com/ and just received his newsletter with a link to his article “A Riddle in the Sand”. Very, very interesting. In the article, Mr. Crawford argues that abrasives have evolved rapidly in recent decades and should be part of the toolkit of any woodworker, not just for finishing and p...

I got a Ridgid 3550 table saw a few years ago off Craig’s List.I like the saw, but I’ve wanted to do an outfeed table.Since the saw is on rollers I couldn’t go with anything too big.Also the saw is shoe-horned into it’s storage spot in the garage, so size was a consideration. And I wanted the fold-down to cover the motor to stop me from snagging on things rolling it in and out of the shop. I also wanted to use just materials I already had on hand (read scraps and cu...

After finishing a design for a client which involved a graphic header for his emails, I got thinking in my normally obsessive way about other graphic heads. Then I got thinking about my own emails. Then I wanted to go one step beyond what I had just finished.So I designed an animated gif for my email header.That was sort of fun.Then I thought about other ways to use this sort of thing.Naturally, I had to go to the LJ blog.Using a header for a blog is done, not by many, but it works.So I did w...
In this video I talk about a question that I asked on lumberjocks last week. I also talk about popular woodworking and woodworking magezine. I am going to be featured in the March 2010 Wood magazine. www.kostasworkshop.blogspot.com
So, now I’ve got the bulk of the work done on the case. Where I left off in my last blog I had cut the sides and glued the top together. Now, I got the top down to the right size. This was a little tricky because I wanted to keep the joint pretty much right in the middle of the panel. Once it was to size it was time to route a cove along the edges so I could fit them into the slots I cut into the sides. I used a cove cutting bit that I filed the guide bearing post off of so I wil...
