Morris Chair #4: Upholstery - Seat

04-27-2017 04:18 PM by PPK | 6 comments »

First off, all credit is due fellow Lumber Jock pintodeluxe, who’s tutorial I copied many ideas from. Thanks Pinto! I built a frame from Hickory. I chose hickory, because it is really tough stuff. The frame gets a lot of tension from the webbing pulling on it, getting sat on, etc. It turned out well, and there was zero discernable deflection after I stretched the webbing over it. I used half lap joints, and added corner blocks to make it even stronger. Next, I start...

Shop stuff #90: Spring maintenance

04-26-2017 01:09 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I gotta take a pause on the tool chest build because…well….spring! I wanted to get this out as it is seasonally appropriate. Winter is over and it’s time to get ready for the warmer weather and undo some of the things that go with winter. A whole slew of handy tips and things that will make life just a little easier. I gotta say, this is pretty much my favourite time of the year. View on YouTube

Shop stuff #89: Tool Chest Pt 3

3/4 = 18mm

04-15-2017 04:39 PM by steliart | 31 comments »

Many times when I’m designing in sketchup, either following a project design, idea or measurements from a video that are in inches, it’s quite confusing for us who did not learn into the imperial system but in metric to get the measurements accurate and loosing a mm there and there that ads up to a significant number.Watching many videos either tutorial or projects etc. when they give dimensions some say i.e. 1/2 inch and transform this to 13mm… well we all know that an inch...

Morris Chair #3: Chair back, pegs & final dye touch ups

04-13-2017 04:59 PM by PPK | 4 comments »

Its about time I throw up a few more pictures. I’ve got my chair completely built from a chair standpoint. The upholstery is yet to come. I finished dying the arms and touched up the dye. The tenon caps got glued in. I made tenons on the stretchers (of the chair back) and mortised the uprights. They were dyed and assembled next. I pegged the joints on the chair back and on the rest of the chair. My method for making pegs involves a drill, s...
