  1. From the album: Shaker Furniture

    All the mortises are bored in the proper locations for the side rungs, we are ready to assemble the main chair frame.

    Back Ladder Mortises

    From the album: Shaker Furniture

    The side rung mortising jig is rotated 180 degrees for the back ladder mortises.

    Chair Mortises

    From the album: Shaker Furniture

    I had a total of 8 mortises to complete, it took a couple hours. But well worth the time. I could create a jig to cut these with a router, but I'd rather not.

    Back Slat Mortises

    From the album: Shaker Furniture

    Laying out the mortises for the back slats of our chair. I scribed the layout lines with a razor knife before I started chopping the mortises. By scribing the lines first, I ended up with a nice crisp and clean mortise line. The lower slat had to have 3/4" deep mortises, and the mortises progressed more shallow to the top and 4th slat at 1/2" deep.
  5. Seems like everytime I get going good down in the shop, I have to stop and play "Driving Miss Daisey" for the Boss. Usually takes up half the day......like this morning's excursion into the Dungeon Shop.. Got some things moved around, and finished the last mortise on the #1 side frame.. Looking decent enough. Had a few trips upstairs to bring down other tools......then had to clear almost everything off the bench, cleanest it has been in weeks, BTW, just to set #2 side frame where I could work on it Even the chisel rack was emptied out. Laid out for some
  6. Lots of chopping going on. I got the tenons to size this morning, and laid out the mortises using the tenons as a guide. Just a few tools were needed for this job. And a clamp to hold the near end. The area I was chopping in, is right over the leg of the bench, no bouncing that way. Square was set to the center of the leg, minus half the thickness of the tenon. Mark from both sides in, and the area to be removed shows up. I mark the top and bottom of the mortise by laying a tenon on top, and tracing the lines. A Few chops. Stick the 1/4" chisel at a start line, bev
  7. Pulled a late nighter. Wanted to get the LAST of the mortises chopped out. Got frame #2 out of the clamps. Clamped it down to the bench's top. Parked the shop stool where I could sit and chop. Yep, I was going to plunk my behind right down there and chop away. Trying to help the back a bit.. Laid out the first part, making sure it was the one that went there, had to keep checking the other frame to make sure. Started to mark a number and letter in a sharpie, just to tell me where each end of each part went where.....been known to get that sort of thing Bass Ackwards...
  8. I tried to at least get the last two legs done today......road trip to take the GrandBRATS home kind of cut into shop time. I did manage to cut a few mortises in the last two legs, about half of them, anyway. This time, I kept the mating rails cloce by, and marked where each went. Also found out the the white sap wood is VERY spongy. One mortise could have been dug out with a fingernail....it also liked to split. Tried a test fit,.... It is the leg on the bottom with the sappy wood. Got out the pipe clamps, again. needed a hammer as well. Pipe cl
  9. Painting WAS to be done today...Landlord fell asleep. He will try to get here in the morning...maybe. Sooo, that left me with not much to do....wandered down to the shop. had a few more tenons to cut, and then they'd all be done. Two of the parts had a curved side. Rather hard to clamp up in the vise...unless you keep a bit of scrap from where you cut the curves out. had to trim a bit off, to clear for the saw cut. Waxed up the backsaw Saw about a third of the way down. A chisel to pop the waste off, that old woodie plane to trim it flat. Rotate and
  10. That I picked up at the tractor fest. A bright red Craftsman 7" wood worker's vise. But, about the only spot on my bench would have been the end of the bench. Grabbed the vise, and a pencil, juggled things around until I had marked a spot out for it. The "End cap" on my bench is just a 2 x4. Needed to notch it in such a way, that i could add two lag screws. needed it to be lower than the bench's top, too. Finally, juggled a bit more, and marked a spot. It sat between the bolts for the bench's legs. Had to miss them. Sabresaw to do the vertical cuts......horizontals we
  11. According to the inventory of the remaining wood stash from the old bed frame: 1 1x6x7' rail in plywood ( soaked) 1 1x 6 x 7' rail might be a glue/lam board, lots and lot of thin plys 1 1 x 10 x7' pine board 2 trim piece from the headboard So, there was just enough for a frame and planel lid. Cross cut to 1 x 6 gl board to just under 34" long, then ripped in right down the center. Front and backs are cut. Cut a section @14" or so long, and ripped it right down the middle. ends are done. Got out the router, and made some grooves. The two short sections needed tenons on ea
  12. Got the second front/back panel in and out of the clamps. Added the mending plates at the top, and a cleat for the floor along the bottom. Then just stood it upYep, going to be wee bit bigger than the first one. Then Spent most of today getting some parts made up for the two ends Just imagine two of each of these. And I got the router fixed up to route some more grooves, First one was burned.....Hmmmm, checked the speed setting? Ah, clear down in 3rd gear...moved it up into 6th gear and try again. Much better. Ran a few planes around, to get all these parts to match up. Trim
