Painted poplar picture frame #1: making the profile

06-23-2021 04:44 PM by Dave Polaschek | 4 comments »

I needed to make a picture frame for some art my sweetie found. These are the steps along the way. The frame needed to have a 9 inch square piece of glass (the art is 7.5×7.75 inches). So I started with a 4 foot long stick of poplar I ripped off the edge of a 3/4×8 inch board. I made it about an inch wide. I clamped it in my face vise and hit it with the #7 jointer plane to get a straight square edge on the surface I had cut. After setting it on my sticking board, I put a 6...

• Lynnsay's Prie Dieu #11: Edge Moulding

04-22-2017 11:01 PM by Ron Aylor | 6 comments »

Edge Moulding –  With the last of the dovetails cut, I loose fit the desk together and devote some time to edge moulding. It appears that the original desk on frame has a separate edge moulding running the perimeter of the top and lid. Therefore, I decided not to have breadboard edges on the top/lid like on the kneeling platform.   I will be using alder for this moulding and hope to fashion something akin to this.                          The moulding is a two-part construction, joined ...

• Lynnsay's Prie Dieu #8: The Kneeling Platform

04-10-2017 12:36 PM by Ron Aylor | 7 comments »

The Kneeling Platform –  The kneeling platform was proving to be something of a challenge. Thus far, I have simply copied the look of the original desk on frame. In adding the kneeling platform, I did not want to stray too far from the William & Mary style. After a great deal of thought, I finally decided on the following.  The perimeter of the platform will have the same 3/4 inch half-round as the transition between the frame and desk. I decided to have the platform more narrow tha...

• Lynnsay's Prie Dieu #7: All the Single Pieces

04-04-2017 11:28 AM by Ron Aylor | 2 comments »

All the Single Pieces - Wuh uh oh uh uh oh … ♪ ♫ ♫ ♪  All the single pieces … ♫ ♪ ♪ ♫  ... all the single pieces … ♫ ♪ ♪ ♫  ... now that I’m done channeling my inner Beyonce, perhaps it’s time to get back to sticking the frame members and start some assembly! After considerable thought as to the design of the kneeling platform, I have completely changed the sticking profile on the frame members. I have decided on 1/16 x 7/16 inch rebates in from the corners, wi...

• Lynnsay's Prie Dieu #6: Slight Detour

03-25-2017 11:52 PM by Ron Aylor | 5 comments »

Slight Detour –  I decided to take a slight detour from sticking the frame members, as I’m still trying to work out the details of the kneeling platform. So, as the frame sits in the sun for a bit …  ... I get started on the transition pieces between the frame and desk. I have decided not to put a full top on the frame, but instead to fashion a picture frame  of sorts to secure the desk … something kind of like this …              I start off by ripping some 2-1/...

• Lynnsay's Prie Dieu #5: Hollows and Rounds

03-19-2017 11:24 PM by Ron Aylor | 9 comments »

Hollows and Rounds –  I have not had much shop time over the last couple of weeks. Actually I have had no shop time … I’ve been down with the flu! I traveled to Maryland two weeks ago and must have pick up the bug at the airport. I’m thankful I got a flu shot at the end of last year … no telling where I’d be had I not. But at any rate … I’m now back amongst the living! As I mentioned earlier, the horizontal frame members of Lynnsay’s Prie ...

Great Grandpa's tools #1: best box of girl scout cookies ever!

06-26-2013 01:02 AM by fumehappy | 3 comments »

I’m talking to my mom the other day and she tells me, ” oh I was down in grandmas cellar and I saw an old girl scout cookie box. It had some of those skinny plane things you like”. Naturally I started to salivate.As luck would have it, circumstances prevented me from obtaining them for a whole week. Since my mom was really vague on the description the suspense was killing me. Finally I obtained the box and as I opened it a beam of light shown out and a choir of angels sang...

Tool Chest #8: Tills and Tool Storage

08-15-2012 04:01 AM by CartersWhittling | 18 comments »

Hello. When I left off the chest was built and ready for the tool storage inside. After giving tool storage some thought I decided on having 3 sliding tills, rear moulding plane storage, front saw till, and tool rolls hanging on the front wall. Nothing really new, but I think my tool roll idea is. When trying to come up with ways to store drill bits and/or chisels on the front wall of my chest I came up with an idea involving canvas tool rolls. What I have is nails driving into t...

Antique Wooden Planes and the Furniture Maker #1: How to Handle a Moulding Plane

12-22-2009 12:53 PM by lethentymill | 12 comments »

Judging by the damage that appears on old wooden planes, patience soon runs out when we handle things that are not operated by a switch! Sometimes this damage is terminal but often with a little care and lots of determination the wooden plane will work again. This video shows the basics of how to handle moulding planes. There is a lot more to investigate and much of that is to do with sharpening, especially when the moulding plane is complex. It’s hard to know how much interest ...
