  3. So my daughter has several chairs to repair. I've done this before, so most of the joints have no mystery. However the seat frame has these clever rib tenons that aren't going to come easy (on the non-broken side). My current thought is to just cut the corner brace with my vibro-multitool, fill in the grooves with glue and inserts, maybe add a 1/8~1/4 plate over the inserts, then just use a metal corner bracket. Any suggestions? And if you say "rotate it 180, shame on you!!! :-)
  4. View File Workbench Magazine January-February Early American Rocking Chair This handsome Boston rocker is an ideal project for the lathe enthusiast, requiring many hours to turn the various spindles, legs and stretchers. A hard, dense wood such as birch or maple should be used for the rocker, as the strains induced by the rocking require strong wood and tight construction. Start construction by making the saddle seat, edge-gluing stock 1" thick, also using dowels to reinforce the joints. Locate the dowels near the lower surface ofthe glued-up plank, so they will not be exposed when you cut into the plank to create the seat depression.

  5. Over a 49˚ rainy weekend visit to a Fine Craft Fair I reacquainted myself with a carver first met decades ago. At that time, I *think* I was looking for large timber. Interesting fella. Could not place when we met but his daughter had been a mature-looking minor, that I remembered She is now "45 or 50". So I was at his place in the mid-late 1990s. Wow! And Tom is now 79 years old. His place is hard to find. The city tore down most area homes and businesses and moved streets in the 1960s with a redevelopment plan which came to a complete stop. Possibly the southwestern-most residential street in the city. He lives and works at the home his great-grandfather bought in 1880. Tom is known as The Rocking Chair Guy but I watched as a Peruvian-born Canadian admired and bought a simple and elegant wall piece of African wood. I sat, with his urging, with my bag of wood samples and small magnesium bronze plane, making shavings for identifications, and heard more of his story. One of my first questions was, "Where did you learn to sharpen your tools?". 1960s, from a master carver in Ecuador ..
  6. Ol knuckle head sanding on a New Lebanon Shaker Rocking Chair. I built this chair from Curly Maple, it turned out very nice.

    Back view, showing the armrests, and the slats for the back. Back rung is a store-bought 7/8" dowel. Finish is two coats of Witch's Brew ( Pumpkin Pine?). The "bench" in the background is my Saw Bench, now over 2 years old.

    Walnut Rocker Seat

    From the album: Walnut Rocking Chair

    Before the finish is applied the chair is sanded to 800 then buffed to 1200 Abralon. The chair is already shining before the first finish goes on.
  9. I'm rebuilding a chair. The joints are M/T, with tenon bolts (inserted in parallel with the tenon) secured to a threaded insert. To the right of the end of the board, you can see a hole into which a pin has been driven. The threaded bolt (1/4-20) cinches up about 1/4" short of the pin. The pin does not act as a stop for the bolt, nor does the pin pass through the M/T joint as a dowel might. What is the reason for the pin?

    The seat is checkerboard weaved, with 5/8" fabric tape available at: Shaker Style Furniture WWW.SHAKERWORKSHOPS.COM Shaker furniture is the one truly original American style of furniture. Its clear crisp lines and singular lightness unite and...
  12. Good friend of mine needed some replacement spindles for chairs he was working on. Went and got some 1.25" Beech spindles and made half a dozen for him. I was happy to have a good spindle to go by. I like the way Beech turns and sands. Couldn't really tell what the original wood was. I have seen it before in furniture from across the pond but not sure of the species. I left the ends on to use as a handle when finishing.
  13. A few pics of some of the things I do. Not a lot of fancy but it keeps me occupied and just enough variety to make things interesting.
  14. I built one prototype bar stool and two kitchen side chairs in times past, using poplar wood, and I had to do something with them. So, I decided to practice spraying colored lacquer (a new technique for me). Wow! They sure are blue. When I selected the colored lacquer, I thought it would be darker. Oh well. Blue is the new gray. The side chairs were sprayed and assembled in multiple steps so that there would be no blue lacquer over-spray on the clear lacquer details. Thanks for looking. Danl
  15. Four production side chairs were completed this week. The design is original. Primary material is cherry. The seat is made from hard maple with two cherry accent pieces and was scooped using the TS. The back support has both cherry and maple splats and the rails are curved along a 33” inner radius. The chair is finished with BLO and precat lacquer. The design has a lot of angles, particularly the lower stretchers. The stretcher assembly uses loose dowel-tenon joinery, so there are 24 mortises and 16 angled surfaces that must play nice with each other. The rear legs are taper on three sides to 1-1/4" x 1-1/4" and have a subtle castle detail added. You can follow the prototype design/build here. Danl

    A couple years ago I purchased a full set of Veritas Spoke Shaves and chair scrapers, I have not had a complete chance to use them all, but I just played with this concave shave on my most recent chair, obviously the diameter of the shave does not fit the diameter of the post, as these shaves are kind of sized for Windsors more or less. But working with it the little that I did, it's a beauty. It's a joy to handle, and the adjustment screws are nice to have the twin screws, I can really dial in the shave.
  17. I was perusing websites for Green Woodworking tonight, and through links and resources I came across this wonderful short film about chair-maker Lawrence Neal. I have been becoming familiar with the woodworker's of the U.K and Europe over the last year or so, through research and contacts and a couple hand tool purchases shipped to me from "over there". The woodworking skill and art in that part of the world is wonderful, the Green Woodworking culture has taken off like a firestorm over there in the last decade among the youth and middle aged, and of course bodgering in the U.K is where it all started. The craft has come back in a big way, and it's really nice to see folks just working the wood, simply, and with just a few tools. Although chair-maker Lawrence Neal has more than just a "few tools, he does have quite the simple shop. So, hope you like this lil film, it's relaxing, and interesting I feel.
