Building the Gramercy Carcass Saw Kit #1: The Build

963 days ago by doorslammer | 5 comments »

I recently purchased the Gramercy Carcass saw kit to add a nice crosscut saw to my till and if Chris Schwarz and Roy Underhill prefer it I thought I’d give it a try, but at $200 it’s a bit pricey. The kit however is a little more than half that and all that’s left to do is attach the brass spine and shape a handle. The kit comes with the saw plate sharp and ready to go, a bent brass back, a pair of split nut saw bolts and instructions with a scaled handle pattern. I chose...

Lighting Pendants #1: Truncated Icosahedron challenge.

31 days ago by MarkTheFiddler | 17 comments »

Howdy, I’m making two chandeliers for the living room. I don’t know why I thought it might be a good idea to hang soccer balls from the ceiling. I just got it in my head that they would look good up there. Now I’m all in. The top half of the chandeliers will be solid wood while the bottom halves will be made from the wooden cages. Since I’m posting this from my I-phone, the pictures might turn out sideways or upside down. ;) This is two top halves resting o...

Building a Moving Fillister Plane #1: Precursor and laminating the body

42 days ago by Wally331 | 4 comments »

Intro- I’ve been using a lot of wooden planes recently and have really come to enjoy their lightness and the feel of wood sliding on wood. Obviously there are a ton of vintage woodies out there; however, I quite enjoy making my own versions of them. They are a lot cheaper (if you have some time on your hands) and you don’t have to deal with old warped wood and a host of other problems you may encounter. I can’t say I am an expert by any means, I’m simply sharing my...

Boxland: Work Stations and Boxing Tips #4: Separating The Top and Cutting a Hinge to Fit

789 days ago by Boxguy | 9 comments »

How do you make a hinge and fit it in a box so that it looks like this when you are done? You Could Use This!...My Hinge Station or a Hack Saw .. Just Browsing? If you want to casually breeze through this just read the dark print and look at the pictures. For more serious readers, I have included details in the fine print. Economics: Price is a major consideration if you are making boxes for sale. I simply can’t afford to put $35 or more into a set of fine brass hinges and m...

Stickley #369 Morris Chair #6: Leather Upholstery

122 days ago by pintodeluxe | 18 comments »

I took a leather sewing class to learn how to make the Morris chair cushions. -----The seat cushion and the ottoman cushion require web frames. Here I am milling the half-lap frame components for the web frames. -----Web frame assemblies are glued together. The seat frame should be sized 1/4” smaller in all directions than the opening in your chair, to allow room for the leather and two layers of batting.-----Corner blocks are added to the large seat cushion for additional strength. ...

This second part will concentrate on the layout of the rolling pin blank in preparation for cutting the slots. Create a blank that is 22” long and 2” square. Locate the center of the length (11”) and carry a line around the blank. The ellipses are 11” long and made of three pieces of 1/8” thick materialLayout a mark 5 ½” on either side of the center line and accurately carry the lines around the blank. To assist in laying out the diagonals, use a 3/8” thick spacer gauge, drawing lines...

Saw Medallion Reference Guide

162 days ago by summerfi | 47 comments »

SAW MEDALLION REFERENCE GUIDE Saw medallions, or label screws as they were originally called, are invaluable for identifying old saws. Additionally, many of them are small works of art in themselves. I don’t know of a comprehensive reference source for saw medallions that covers all makers, so I decided to start one here. My intent is to add to this list over time to make it as complete as possible. If you run across a medallion that is not listed here, post a picture of it in the comments...

Boxland: Work Stations and Boxing Tips #8: Cutting the Corner 45 Degree Angles

501 days ago by Boxguy | 17 comments »

A Quick, Accurate Way To 45 Your Corners If you build boxes at all, eventually you tire of cranking your blade from 90 degrees to 45 degrees and back…I did. So I built this simple jig, and now I can cut all 8 ends of a box accurately in about 5 minutes, AND STILL LEAVE MY TABLE SAW SET AT 90 DEGREES. Assumption: I am assuming that you have already laid out the board for your sides and have cut all four sides of your box to length. Short side, long side, short side, long side...
