Morris inspired chair #5: I couldn't resist.....dry fit seat and back

06-12-2007 05:58 AM by Bob Babcock | 10 comments »

I braved the mosquitoes to get some more done tonight. I think I lost a 1/2 pint of blood. Gotta get some repellant. You have to be brave at moments like this….splitting the tenon for the wedge. I think I’ll cut them on the bandsaw the next time I try something like this. I think it would give better consistancy. The pegs go in the back The dog thinks there’s a woodchuck under the shed. OK…here it is…I couldn’t resist…had to check some mea...

Morris inspired chair #4: The back goes together......finished crossed wedged tenon

06-12-2007 12:08 AM by Bob Babcock | 8 comments »

I made some progress on the back. Looking good if I do say so myself. Gluing the arched cross members to the posts. You can see one of the spots I’m not happy with in the foreground. When I cut this profile with the bandsaw it revealed some strange feathery wood that chipped out easily. I’m not too worried since it won’t be visible. From the top Inserting the pegs. The round pieces in the foreground are for the hinge. I started them with a two inch hole saw on the d...

Morris inspired chair #3: Glue up---pegging tenons

06-11-2007 05:07 AM by Bob Babcock | 5 comments »

OK…overall I’m pretty happy with the way things are going. There’s a few ugly spots as well though. The crossing wedged tenons actually came out pretty cool (finished picture next time) but on two of them still have gaps in the joinery. I had the sides glued up last night and got up early this morning to get them set up before we went to the Cape for the day. When we got home tonight I started pegging the tenons. I’m using 1/2” oak dowels. I’m going t...

Morris inspired chair #2: Dryfit.....sand.....glue

06-10-2007 06:07 AM by Bob Babcock | 8 comments »

Gotta get to bed so I’ll make this a quick one… It’s looking like a chair. From the back Closeup of the crossing tenons. Night Ops….final sanding. I need some more clamps….like 20 or so…this is every one I own. OK…bedtime…heading to my daughters on the Cape in the morning. We are wiring the lampost/mailbox I made her. I’ll get some pictures and post them tomorrow. Very easy and relatively inexpensive to make.

Morris inspired chair #1: The chair becomes real...

06-08-2007 08:42 AM by Bob Babcock | 13 comments »

I figured I’d best get this blog done or I’ll never do it. Some of you will remember the morris inspired chair design I did in Sketchup. Well it’s finally starting to take a real form. This is my 1st attempt to do anything that might be construed as fine furniture…we’ll see in the end if it gets close. I’ve already made a number of mistakes I’m not happy with…a couple of odd twists of wood that split….a couple of bonehead hits with m...

The Stars were aligned today.

05-06-2007 04:46 AM by WayneC | 11 comments »

Today was a goof-off day. I grabbed my handplane hunting pack, iPod and my son and I headed out to the local flea market. Unfortunately, no new tools were to be had today. We stopped at a few garage sales and ran across a guy selling a trailer of 5/4 rough redwood. I had been thinking about building some Redwood Adirondack Chairs for my patio. But, there was enough lumber in the trailer that storage in the garage of my suburban home would be a challenge (that and the explaining it to the ...
