  1. Checked McFeeley's to see if their 1/1/4" ash dowels were still the most reasonable priced dowels on the market and hey, McFeeleys has changed ownership and don't ever list lots of things they used to sell..including dowels Their 3 foot ash dowels uses to sell for 3.35 each in lots of 50 and were super straight. I have a few more of the 100 I bought from them but now need more. They told me at the time they didn't stock the large sizes for they would be straighter leaving it up to the supplier to keep and send only the straight ones to McFeeley's customers... Shucks!!
  2. Steam Box Dowels

    From the album Steam Bending Wood

    The dowels are drilled in and in place. No glue for the entire box.
  3. One was...meh, second one was much better. First, the "ugly one" The side on the right was there to help clamp things up....didn't work out too well. Went down to the shop today, cleared everything off the bench.. I'll get yelled at for putting my stuff onto HER dryer. Then I made up a bunch of blocks... had some scrap sitting around. bandsawn to sit onto round posts. Might NOT have to fight & cuss clamps this time around... Some needed the blocks, some didn't, or weren't quite long enough. While this thing was sitting like this, I drill for some small dowels to pin a few joints... These are from earlier. Not the prettiest, have to sand a lot anyway. I also had one BIG dowel to install... Bit is 7/8", brace is a PEXTO 12" sweep. Good thing I'm on the tall side. This was to install a rung in the back.. Still have to do one out front. Joints pinned. I have a clamp pulling the chair into almost square.....Figured I could at least work on a seat Couldn't quite get things marked right this way. Took the clamps off as they weren't needed, glue had set. Now I could mark the seat support better. Then some fancy cutting on the bandsaw, and sit the support thing in place... I glued this in place, later I'll pin from the outside, and add a screw from underneath.. You can also see the clamp to pull things back into square. Had a couple scrap slats, so a look at the seat.. I need to start cutting seat slats, get them smoothed out, ends rounded. Center sits a bit lower than the front, by design. I also laid out a couple blanks for armrests Reminds me, I need to cut a tenon on the other front post....oops. Those dowels are for the lower rungs, one is alreadt installed and pinned in place. Might be about half way done with this thing.....I also bought a supply of 100 grit sandpaper, I think I might need most of it. For some reason, I'm a little tired, right now....I think I' ll let things sit awhile....
  4. Coat rack needed a shelf

    Soo, Bought a 1x6x48" plank of pine. Lowes finest.. Handsaw to cut to the length needed. Coping saw to cut the supports out of the waste. #78 plane to cut a rebate on each end, to house the supports. Drill a few holes, two were for a dowel rod. Added a metal bracket in the middle, to help hold the shelf while I installed it.. Picture was a puzzle we put together, then glued up. Might get a frame...someday.. Some of the screw holes needed a pilot hole, like on the corners. Glued and screwed, a push drill to make the pilot holes, first. A spade bit to make the deeper ones in the supports. A 3" long screw was then driven into the King studs on each side. just a pine project...
