  1. Seeing that I had took all the tips off of my EWT tools not including the rougher. I started on a new project while I'm waiting for a couple tools and parts to get here to finish off the last project. I decided to go with the Walnut Claro again this round. I had a minor problem in the beginning that I didn't realize that the blank was off angled cut and was well some what lop sided to start with. Even still burned through that issue at the start and had a go with it. I had to take off quite a bit of material to get more of a cup shape with this one. For the bottom I didn't go with the mo
  2. I had a nice day last weekend, I was in my shop for most of it, just tooling around and getting reacquainted with my clean shop! So I started back in on my claro walnut rocker. I had some issues with the legs to the seat joint so I spent some time truing up the joint's (different post later tonight) and after wards I still had some considerable shaping to do with my right angle grinder. So I put a 60 grit disk on the grinder and went to town on the rear portion of the seat, I had some dishing out to do that I started last year but got side tracked away from it. It took me about 15 minutes t
  3. Yesterday I managed to extract myself from the busy life of Honey Do's and kids daily events and get a little time in the shop with our Claro Rocker. A week ago when I started laying out the arms ontop of the arm pads that are basically the top of the front legs, I realized I made a major mistake in my calculations for the arm rests to meet up at the proper height to the joint at the rear leg/backrest area. I was a full 1/4" too low, the joinery was not going to meet up where it was supposed to by my previously laid out joints. After much thinking and tinkering with ideas and layouts, I
  4. Interesting article from Woodworker's Journal eZine today. No doubt @John Morris is familiar with Gene Kelly's works. Some exquisite turnings too for you wood spinners... http://www.woodworkersjournal.com/gene-kelly-sculptured-furniture-segmented-turnings-always-learning/
  5. Today I started on the final shaping on the headrest for the rocker. Photo below is the roughed out coopered headrest. I had to plane down the glue squeeze out because the next step is to joint one end of the headrest and I need a relatively unobstructed surface to ride against the joiner fence. There, all clean now. Now that one side is cleaned up pretty good I made one end of the headrest nice and flat for a good reference surface for the band-saw operation. One end is nice and clean now. I traced a nic
  6. Last night I managed to get one of the rockers glued up and in the form. I have to work fast for this process, so all my clamps need to be near by in reach, and I had to spread my glue on 16 surfaces, each side of each lam except for the top and bottom of the rocker. I used Titebond III which typically has a longer open time than traditional white glue. So it gave me about 10 minutes to work with, but I may have only taken 5 minutes, but it's a long 5 minutes! After getting the lams glued up, and set the stack on my rocker form. Then the clamps were applied I'll b
  7. Today I am working on rough shaping the rear legs to the seat. You'll see the transitions I cut in with the bandsaw, but first I had to mark out my limit lines so I would not cut the transitions below the surface of the seat. I marked out both the top and the bottom of the seat joint areas. You can see the scribed lines for the future transitional seat joint. After I scribed the lines I used a small can for the curves. I like using things like this to mark out my work. I think that sometimes we can get so over tooled in our sh

    Rocker Workbench

    I love a bench at the end of the day, it has so much character, here is my bench after working on a Claro Walnut Rocker.
  9. Working on the rear legs of this rocker. I am planing the faces true and flat for the seamless leg to arm joints. This face must be dead on flat and smooth in order for the arm to mate up properly. The imperfections must be planned away. Got it. Arm blanks in the back. It doesn't look like much yet. But it will be!
  10. Well again I made it out to my shop today, it seems to be a rare occurrence these days, absolutely criminal if you ask me! But I am trying my hardest to just get out there, wind down, and pick back up my old projects and get some shop time in. I will be out there more and more as the new year unfolds and a couple big projects start up for some customers, I am happy to be able to get things fired back up, and some additional income! I dug out my claro walnut rocker from the corner and I am going to get back on it. All the parts are roughed out, the arm billets are not shown in this image, I ju
