  1. Well it had to be to good to be true. Finished the coffee bar and the she wants a shelf with hooks for coffee cups. The real kicker is these are not the cups she uses every day but cups from the regular set of dishes. First up is to turn shaker pegs from walnut. This is something we have talked about in the turning forum. They all look the same but there are some variances. One has a larger button end , one is longer, one is shorter, one is thinner. But they are close enough that you may be able to tell some difference in photo however not all.
  2. Sometimes instructional videos can get long, and that is fine if you are mainly unfamiliar with every step of the process to make your project. This video however, was just right, assuming you already have a grasp on layout and design and tools usage, this young man goes through the basic steps on making a very nice shaker cupboard. I am in the process of making rail and stile and raised panel doors for mama's cabinet, using hand tools, and I wanted to get some tips on the process and order of steps, I found this relatively short video that included what I needed to see. Actually thi
  3. For my latest project building some pine cabinets for a customer of mine, he has requested that the upper cabinet has a sawtooth shelf support system. He loves the old timey look it offers, and I like it too. Sawtooth Shelf supports come in various sizes, various angles are used for aesthetics, and you are not even regulated to sawtooth configurations, you can angle the notches at virtually any angle you like. It appears the builder of the supports in this image to the left angled their notches at around 15 degrees. We angled ours at 45 degrees. So yesterday I too
  4. I made Shaker berry boxes for a few Christmas presents this year. Four of the boxes have cherry sides and maple handles & bottoms. The fifth box is made from all poplar. The sides and handle are 1/8” thick and the bottoms are ¼” thick. The construction is 1/8” x 1/8” box joint. The finish is two coats shellac. Danl
  5. I made this in my tiny little shop (man, I’d really LOVE to have a window). Two are #4 hard maple shaker boxes with African mahogany tops. Also made two #3 shaker boxes from walnut with butternut tops. Hit them with some natural danish oil and after they dry for about 3 days or so, I’ll shoot them with about 4 coats of a satin poly. The hardest part for me is milling the stock to 1/16th of an inch....I seen to be able to get a better result on my table saw instead of the bandsaw....anyhow, I hope all youse guys are staying safe and healthy! I can’t wait until this comes to an end.

    I have already turned the posts and rungs and assembled this New Lebanon Shaker stool, next time I will install images of some of the process that is required to build these wonderfully simple stools. But for now, I'll show a couple images demonstrating the weave of these stools.

Related Topics Shaker Transitional Rocker Part 1 (Curly Maple) Shaker Transitional Rocker Part 2 (Curly Maple) Shaker Transitional Rocker Part 3 (Curly Maple) Shaker Transitional Rocker Part 4 (Curly Maple) Today I was able to get back in the shop and focus on this chair that has been lingering for some time now. What spurred this, is we need money. My oldest daughter who is in her senior year of college is going to be heading out next summer on missionary work overseas. So hopefully I'll be a little busy in the old shop over the next 10 months or so earn

    This is the first time I have played with actually photographing my work in a more professional way, with the help of my kids, I think we did pretty good. This chair was another fun build, I just love these chairs.

  12. Hi Guys, New to the forum and just recently resumed my woodworking (5 kids need no further explanation). I drew this shaker style step in sketchup, and made it from local cherry, it has a dutch oil finish. I appreciate the wealth of knowledge that the forum provides and am excited about learning all I can and honing my skills (considered an amateur). cheers dsb
  13. I love chairs. And I like building them too. I built several sculpted rockers in the past and while they are absolutely beautiful, the time it takes to build in the sculpted style is great, unless you are producing those chairs for a living, it can take quite awhile to produce one sculpted rocker. Not too mention there is much waste in those chairs, so I decided to simplify and take the edge off of building chairs by moving on to a more traditional chair and after looking at different styles of chairs and rockers I decided I wanted to build in the Shaker style. Building in the Shaker style can

Related Topics Shaker Transitional Rocker Part 1 (Curly Maple) Shaker Transitional Rocker Part 2 (Curly Maple) Shaker Transitional Rocker Part 3 (Curly Maple) The Finish Well folks, as were the others this subject was getting a little long in the tooth so I split this topic off from the 3rd entry. We'll show the finish and the seat weave in this topic. Today I was able to get out in the shop and get some finish on our rocker. I don't have really any images of the finish prep, there wasn't much to it, unless you like viewing a man holding sand p
  15. Came home from work Thursday and found a wonderful box full of goodies for making Shaker Oval Boxes. I ordered this starter set to learn how to make the boxes, from John Wilson box maker. The Home Shop | Shaker Oval Boxes | John Wilson | Shaker Craftsman | Charlotte Michigan | 48813 WWW.SHAKEROVALBOX.COM It includes everything to get started from the water pan to bend the bands, to the forms to make box sizes from #0 through #4 and the copper tacks, the finger templates and a few more items to get started. I have Mr. Wilson's books that I purchas
  16. Shaker Rocker in Cherry Related Topics Shaker Transitional Rocker Part 1 (Curly Maple) Shaker Transitional Rocker Part 2 (Curly Maple) Current Project So folks, I decided to break this topic up in parts as the last one was getting a little long in the tooth. So you can see the links above to the first two parts of my chair build. April of 2017 is when I started this maple chair, and as you know by now I decided to pick it back up and get back out in the shop and try to focus for once on woodworking as I did in Part 2. Thanks for following me!
  17. Shaker Cherry Rocker Related Topics Shaker Transitional Rocker Part 1 (Curly Maple) Shaker Transitional Rocker Part 3 (Curly Maple) Current Project I hope to revive this project this weekend. All the components have been cut, steamed, bent, shaped, and now I need to chop the mortises in the rear legs for the back slats. The last time I touched this, was the last time I've done any real meaningful work in my shop, about two years ago. So far the stars are lining up for Dad and the shop the next couple days. Wish me luck!

    The seat is weaved, and I placed the accompanying stool with it. I am pretty happy how this one turned out. I'll create plenty more, this was just too much fun.
  19. Shaker Transitional Rocker Part 2 (Curly Maple) Shaker Transitional Rocker Part 3 (Curly Maple) Well here we are. Getting ready to cut into a nice 8/4 board of heavy Curly Maple to begin another rocker journey. Tonight I'm laying out parts and cutting. With any luck I'll have some slats in the steamer tonight. This photo does no justice to the figure in this board. I'll keep this topic going with this chair build. Thanks for following along! Legs are cut and squared.
  20. From the album: Shaker Furniture

    A wonderful project, I highly recommend anyone to build these chairs, suitable for most skill levels. The weaving in this seat was considerably more challenging than the square stools I weaved. The trapezoidal shape of the seat created some interesting challenges, but I got through them.
