I ran across these pictures of a room divider screen frame I made for a friend of the family awhile back. She wanted to cover with fabric and have the top and bottom rails removable to slide into the loop in the fabric top and bottom. So I used a dovetail joint on the ends of the rails. I thought this might be of interest to someone. Herb
You can't tell it, but this is a beetle kill pine frame. I made a lot of things out of it. I made this frame for my wife for her embroidery ladies. She made about 6 of them. The pin in her hair is real and highlights the work. She took one look at my beetle kill pine and said, NO. Its got to be black. I really wanted to show Karen's beautiful handy work.
Has finally came back "on-line".....scary thought... Working out some details to build a case to hold the boxes I have been a-building....and maybe a drawer or two. maybe like a chest-of-drawers? Need to make the sides and top. Might be whatever wood comes into the shop during the build. Might see quite a bit of work done with the Stanley 45, too. Might need to resaw a few things down, too. Start time is after the 5th jan. Doc visit. Will post updates of the build, and the knee. Stay tuned.
Ok, time for the "late Edition", Went back down to shop for a bit....had a little more work I could do.. Yeah,,, ugly things. We have ways of flattening this out.. Called a Jumbo Jack plane. Jack plane on steroids. The weight will help keep the board down onto the bench. Have to do both faces, and even a few smooth plane passes... Until I get these four slats, fairly straight, and smooth.....enough to at least work with them. But, there are those edges.. Back to the Jumbo Jack. Make one side straight, and then gingerly flip the sammich over, and do the other edges. Without any of them moving around...mallet comes in very handy.. Testing the fits... Have to allow for joinery on the ends. Longer sides were ok for length, had to trim the shorter two a bit......Stack all the mess up into one spot.. Have a few more jobs to do with this mess...dovetailed corners, a Stanley #45 to plough a groove for the panel, size the panel and raise it, Might take a day or three..."Say Goodnight, Gracie"
Well, there is all the parts Frame & Panel parts. Just finished milling the last leg parts.Had some nasty stuff to cut away, though Just to make two back leg blanks for the end panels. Cleaned up some rails Set up a three screw jig to remove the "cope" from the tenon. Used a #3 handplane to "Chute" away the lip, and mill the shoulder back to square. Third screw is behind this rail. Most of the old parts had a two layer "veneer" , some even had a thick paper as the outer layer. Pried most of it off, to get down to the "real wood" underneath the glue. Milled a few last grooves, and will start to mill tenons tomorrow, I hope. Even tried a test fit Ok, so I still have some work to do on this.... Raised panels have been sitting around, awaiting to be installed in the frames. Trying to build this chest with just the parts scrounged from the old bed frame. Might even have enough left over, to glue up a fancy lid... Stay tuned...
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.
