Now that I have the plan in place for the end marquetry there is a little housekeeping to be done with the drawers. The pull out ones in the centre column are straightforward and relatively easy so I have already glued the marquetry to them. The tricky ones are the cantilevered drawers in the side columns.When last seen they looked like this. They were glued up but had no bottoms. The bottoms will be 1/4” plywood veneered both sides with walnut and ebonized. Because the plywood c...

When dealing with handplanes there are two main things you have to have. The first is a really sharp iron. This helps make some great shavings and you can tell a difference between a dull iron and a sharp one. The second important thing to have with handplanes is a flat bottom. If the bottom isn’t flat you won’t end up with nice and flat lumber, or you will be fighting the pushing action while planing. In this video i show how easy it is to get a flat sole. The whole process takes...
I believe I first found Frank Howarth after finally checking out his much-talked about stop motion animation chair video.

Ok, the last post I made about this project was over five months ago. The summer heat made me lethargic and unmotivated, combined with a drop in my available free time as other life things occupied me …. But for the last month or so, I’ve been carving out time to work on this project. Progress – Wheels: In the last post I made, I described the design of the new wheels and showed pictures of some of the parts cut out. The wheels have been fabricated up to a rough versio...
Over the last month, I have focused on a woodworker in the 15th century that created religious carvings for the medieval church. If you were not a farmer, a soldier, or a priest, a woodworker would most likely create images for the church that dominated every communilty. I focused on the german sculptor, Tilman Riemenschneider. His work was beautiful and stands above the church of the day because his carving showed so much emotion. Think of the pressure on this woodworker when they moun...
