Building Dave's Stacking Chair #4: Gluing up the Seat Frame

07-20-2015 11:57 PM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

[Legebla ankaŭ en Esperanto] [Below] I designed the seat frame to try and conceal the end grain of each board once the chair is completely assembled. Unfortunately this makes it a bit difficult to glue up. A band clamp won’t hold things together well, so I use my trusty bar clamps. [Below] It’s true that you can’t ever have too many clamps in the shop. I was only able to glue up 4 of the 6 chair seat frames today. I’ll let them set overnight and begin again t...

Building Dave's Stacking Chair #3: Milling the Pieces

07-20-2015 11:44 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

[Legeble ankaŭ en Esperanto] During the prototype process I built a 2-in-1 jig to make tapering the legs easier. [Below] Even though I chose boards that were pretty clear, they were still just common pine boards and had some small knots in them. By cutting the lengths carefully I eliminated some of them. Via the tapering of the legs, I was able to cut out a few more bad spots. (The wedge shaped cut offs from this project can be glued together and used for small projects.) ...

Building Dave's Stacking Chair #2: Bent Lamination for the Curved Back

07-20-2015 11:10 PM by Dave Rutan | 5 comments »

[Legebla ankaŭ en Esperanto] I wanted to get the bent lamination for the back out of the way because I wanted to leave it over night in the press. [Below] I’ve learned from experience to protect the outer faces of the lamination with tape. Other wise the glue squeeze out gets on the edges and it takes more time to scrape/sand it off. I’m using packing tape here because I was out of wide masking tape. [Below] The press is made from some particle board and it is just ...

Building Dave's Stacking Chair #1: Cutting the Wood

07-20-2015 10:58 PM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

[Legebla ankaŭ en Esperanto] This is a step by step ‘tutorial’ for the finished project located here: [link] [Above] I’m using a 1×12 to build this chair, I’m actually building 6 chairs, but just add the plurals where needed. I began by cross cutting the board in half to make it more manageable. [Above] I ripped the board into 3 inch strips. These are pretty much the standard width for most of the pieces. A 2 inch strip is left over, but part of ...

Jigs #1: The Super-Awesome-Tuberculosis Curing Crosscut Sled

07-13-2015 04:58 AM by JeffMartineau | 7 comments »

Oh my! You guys have no idea how happy I am right now. It took about two weeks, a digital angle finder, a dial indicator, a new Biesemeyer fence, table saw extensions, and a lot of sweat, but this crosscut sled is done! Well, almost. Still have to build accessories, paint it, and make it look all pretty and whatnot, but at the very least, I can use it to cut, or more exactly to crosscut. You are probably wondering how on earth can a simple sled make a guy this kuckoo right? It is by no mea...
