Adventures in Tool Making #3: A Pair of Tenon Saws from a Disston Miter Saw - Shaping, Sanding, Polishing, and Finishing

06-16-2013 05:26 PM by grfrazee | 2 comments »

Happy Fathers’ Day everyone! I got some shop time this weekend and decided to work on the pair of tenon saws again. Unfortunately, I only had time to work on one of the saws, but the procedure is the same for the other one so it doesn’t really matter. I left off last time with the handles roughed out and rounded over from the router. Next step was finishing shaping the horns of the handle. I used a combination of this curved-tooth file that I picked up at an antique...

A care package from an LJ friend

06-11-2011 09:02 PM by Karson | 17 comments »

I arrived home yesterday to find a package on my front porch. It was a care package from an LJ friend in Texas. Gerardo Garcia sent me a message and asked if I wanted some wood. He was getting concerned about the posabalities of Huricanes in his area of S. Texas and was offering some wood. What arrived was 61 lbs of Mesquite and Texas Ebony. Small to mid size turning wood. Thanks BlueStingRayBoots. You are a great and generous friend. I hope and pray that the water stays ...

First Time Turning #1: Rough Stock Preparation

03-17-2008 05:18 AM by Copperjock | 4 comments »

Next weekend I will be going to my dad’s, and taking a couple blocks (purpleheart and honey mesquite) to turn on his lathe. I don’t believe he’s done much turning, mostly table legs from what I know. Anyway, these are the pieces to be offered at the sacrificial altar. They started out as 6”x6”x2”, and so far I have found center, used a protractor to make a maximum circle, and cut them on the bandsaw, about 1/8” outside of the line. One que...

30 projects in 30 days #21: 11/12 days 1-3

11-05-2012 05:03 AM by scottb | 0 comments »

So, I’m a sucker for challenges. A few years back, the ‘Couch to 5k’ program got me running again after many years on the D.L. Last year I took on a “consecutive days of Geocaching adventure.” (think high-tech scavenger hunt if you’ve never heard of it) I started out attempting 30, then 100 days in a row, which fulfilled a couple of challenges I was going for. Then it was onward to 189 so I would surpass my record of days without geocaching. Yes, when I...

Morris Chair #9: Journey's End, and so it goes.

03-04-2015 02:43 PM by Luddite | 2 comments »

3 March 2015 I’ve finally reached the end of this build. Soon the client will come claim her chairs and off they’ll go for their cushions. Glad but sad at the end of builds, well not for all of them. The “Tea Table” was one I didn’t shed any tears over. My phantom tip of thumb reminds me every time I mention that project. So here’s a wrap up of the Morris Chair build…. Early January. Legs and rails prepped. Bent arm conundrum reso...
