<div> <div>Get your own valid XHTML YouTube embed code</div></div> I am having a lot of trouble getting the video to look right in this blog! It looks wrong here and if you click full screen it looks even worse! If you REALLY want to watch it then it is best to click on the button to see it on YouTube. It looks fine there. Otherwise, well, you get the idea! If anyone knows the RIGHT way to embed videos then I would love it if you would ...

Rocking Chair Build #4: Headrest

10-18-2011 07:17 PM by Topapilot | 0 comments »

The headrest is made up of 6 billets, 4.75 wide by 8 tall. They are glued together to form a curve. This means they need an angled edge to create this curve.

Using the cut offs from the jig I glued up pairs of billets: With three pairs of billets glued up, they were too curved to clamp together so I used pinch dogs top and bottom. These worked great. Finished, they ...

Does anyone know anything about the art of coopering?

06-21-2008 11:29 PM by jockmike2 | 17 comments »

I am in the process making a couple large teardrop shaped supports for a table, but know absolutely nothing about coopering and the two supports are rather large. Is there an expert among the Lumberjocks that could give me some pointers or ideas where to hunt for information that would be of help to a begginer. That’s the reason I’m asking here rather than a blind search on line. I could search for days and get no where. I have a basic understanding of what coopering is and unders...
