To accomplish this I made an inset inner frame on the back to make it stand out.I wish I had a better picture of this but the lighting was subpar, along with my subpar photography skills, this is what I got.

Skateboard ring process breakdown

07-12-2019 07:49 PM by kiwilynne | 4 comments »

A quick breakdown for Jim Jakosh and everyone else interested in how I make a skateboard ring I cut a 3×3 cm blank from the skateboard using the deck’s original thickness. I then use the scroll saw to cut off the corners and reduce some of the extra wood. I put the blank on the lathe and get it down to a bit thicker than what the final ring will be, to account for additional finishing sanding. Make sure your chisels are sharp, because if it catches it can take a go...

After many weeks, the bridal joint and holes for the dowels were put into place. Now just time to throw in some glue and screws to put it all together, sand, find a good finish, and get an upholster to sew the pads.

Lounge Chair #9: It's coming together...Glued up the legs.

04-27-2019 12:24 AM by Kaelin Quigley | 1 comment »

Now all of these parts and pieces are starting to make sense. The slats for the leather pads are biscuited and glued into the arched legs. Unfortunately, the miter at which the back sits on the legs is incorrect so ill have to do some cutting by hand and refine that angle to get the proper reclining slope. The back is screwed through the bottom and a lot of the actual strength of the chair comes from a bridal joint which scissors from the back into the arms. Surprisingly, there are only four ...

Lounge Chair #8: Arm into leg

04-20-2019 12:49 AM by Kaelin Quigley | 1 comment »

I thought this would be a lot more tricky than it turned out to be. Four dowels are placed in the top of the leg and run into the bottom of the arm to make it appear as if the arms are floating. The dowels are 3/8” and are a little longer than an inch. This forms the “lego joint” which is used a few different places on this chair.
