Class On Kevin Rodel's Side Chair #5: The Front Legs

02-12-2013 03:45 AM by Grampa_Doodie | 1 comment »

The Front Legs Note: When I talk about the many parts of this chair, I name them as if I were sitting in the chair. As mentioned in the previous class, the front legs just might be the easiest major part of the chair to create. I also mentioned in the “Introduction” part of this class that I chose to laminate two pieces of cherry for the front legs. So once I had my cherry stock laminated, all I needed to do was to bring that laminated stock down to 1 1/2 inches thick via the thickne...

Class On Kevin Rodel's Side Chair #3: The Upper And Lower Crest Rails

The Upper & Lower Crest Rails Note: When I talk about the many parts of this chair, I name them as if I were sitting in the chair. Now that you’ve completed your back splats, it’s time to create their future home. And that’s where the crest rails come into play. Seeing that these two parts are going to be readily seen from both front or back, I wanted to make sure that I picked out some really nice blocks of cherry with exceptionally beautiful grain. And I’m so glad I did. It see...

04-05-2013 09:00 PM by GnarlyErik | 9 comments »

Here are some little tricks you can use when you are trying to clamp something bigger or longer than your available clamps. ‘Joining’ clamps: Sometimes it is possible to simply clamp one clamp to another, with their business (working) dogs to the outside of your work as with pipe clamps, but in the case of door clamps this is hard or impossible to do since you can not rotate the dogs of the clamps.

Video Review Of Dust Deputy

03-30-2013 04:39 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 9 comments »

I posted this in the review section as well. But I felt the video offers a lot of context on how I use the Dust Deputy as a professional, what tools I use it with, and how I have it set up. This is a lot of good information to consider if you are thinking of getting one. You can see my Dust Deputy review here. Your friend in the shop- Todd A.

No Quarter #1: Shell box - Intro and pattern

07-22-2011 08:44 PM by BritBoxmaker | 18 comments »

Hello here this is my second attempt to blog shell boxes. The last one ended up in the wall art ‘Inverted World’. Well this one is a little less spectacular but is based along the same theme of curves. This time a curved pattern but it will have stringing introduced between the colour changes as will become apparent as the blog progresses. The main woods are American Black Walnut and Sycamore with Yew stringing. I will be book-matching woods where necessary. First step i...
