Grooming something this small needs a jig so I turn the whole piece into a big jig large enough to hold on to. I screwed the Rook to be to a piece of 1/4" piece of BB. This let me hold it true for a cut on each side with the band saw. Then grind away till it matches the other one!! Used different wood so a little staining might help. I found something close. So I took it outside and shoot it with some clear to see if the color was still close after the clear Dried. I used maple and they had made the chess set with cedar. The lady thought only a few pieces with chips missing were all the set needed until the guy that got the set for Christmas let her know two pieces were missing... Now to get back to the End Of The Trail saga...
I did some repairing on some pieces of a chess set before Christmas then the lady gave the set to a relative but he said there were two men short to be a full set. So yesterday I was given two men to go by.. I used all two of the knives and I could have used a few more but hey I don't do this for a living...I might have gotten more exact if I knew I was gonna get paid!!!!
While looking through Pinterest.com for another project I ran across a cluster of rocking chairs. Don't know what style you are gonna be known for but I would think you should build at least one of every style every invented so all those folks can get a good idea if you might be on the up and up about being a woodworker.... And since now would be the best time ever to start accumulating the free wood you might need for the next 30 or 40 years of chair building so get started now. Tune up that chain saw and head up or down? to all that scorched wood thats up there that folks are needing to move to get their homes rebuilt... Just don't forget every person has different taste. You do need to be able to please those folks that's got money to burn and remember not every one wants what their neighbors have. Just keep your mind clear for all suggestions.. 20125529565092976 ROCKING CHAIR.htm 20125529565092976 ROCKING CHAIR.htm
The bottom piece was the last one done. Then after closer inspection, it was done but on the wrong side. See the two holes in the two pieces. They line up and a screw goes in from the bottom. I knew about an hour ago it was time to quit and go eat. At least I can still carve the other side.. Can't win em all.
While having to clear the "card" of a camera we bought at a yard sale a while back....they had forgot to delete 135+ pictures of a trip to Tybee Island....took a LONG time to clear them all off. All except one.... Apparently, the was a house full of older furniture. This MIGHT have had casters under them feet. So...who is going to make this one? Again, I don't carve....maybe Morris could whip one of these out....
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
