How to Replace Broken Chair Stretchers

04-17-2019 12:53 PM by WoodshopTherapy | 0 comments »

I documented how I go about replacing broken or missing chair stretchers. This may seem challenging, but once you see how it’s done, it will be less intimidating. This video shows measuring, cutting, joinery, staining, and assembly details. Let me know what you think. I also show my lumber storage solution for shorts… I hope that’s helpful too!

Here’s another update for you guys. I used a 1/16” straight router bit for the kerfs and I made a template for making the kerfs for the doors and windows. I am going to put the gas cap in a different location. I want my model to have different features than T&J’s.........................Thanks for watching!

Arts and Crafts Dresser #11: Wrap it up

03-31-2019 05:41 PM by BlueRidgeDog | 5 comments »

Long fun project. The final steps were four coats of Osmo rubbed out with #0000 and woollube after coat 3. For a modified Arts and Crafts design, I like it. If fits the intended space and use and works with some of my existing period pieces. I won’t go into the design details as they are included early on in the build series. There are a few finish defects that I will scrape and touch up, but nothing dramatic. The top will not be attached until it is in-place (heavy enough...

PITA - chip out

02-27-2019 03:05 PM by slydog | 6 comments »

I’ve posted previously on building dartboards. I’m in the process of doing another. I just wanted share a misery piece – maybe someone has some thoughts on how to prevent it. I was building the door panels and routing the edges when as I routed across the end grain, the bit must have caught and chipped out interior edge – talk about a bad day!!!! I couldn’t see anyway to correct it so It became a member of the scrap bin (I so hate wasting red-oak).

Arts and Crafts Dresser #6: Top and waiting

02-17-2019 11:22 PM by BlueRidgeDog | 2 comments »

I don’t have the wood for the drawers (other than the faces). I have a bunch of 4/4 ash, but to make 1/2” sides out of that is a lot of waste, so I am waiting on some 5/4 that I can re-saw (waiting on the weather actually to head to the hardwood lot). I the interim period, I used epoxy to fill some knot holes and some aggressive tear out: I stained the top then put the epoxy in so it would have the same color under the clear epoxy. After epoxy finishing I re-stained th...

Arts and Crafts Dresser #5: Finishing Carcass and Fitting Drawer faces

02-10-2019 04:52 PM by BlueRidgeDog | 3 comments »

Not as much progress as desired this week, but fun non-the-less. Drawer Webs and Kickers are done and drawer fronts are fitted. Side drawer runners are simply edge glued. Non-structural and just scrap oak. Carcass is done with the exception of the back, but that will go on last so I can reach as needed for drawer fitting. Before fitting the first vertical edge: The drawer faces are first cut to approximate height plus 1/16” then planed to fit the opening. Then t...

Arts and Crafts Dresser #4: Arch, Carcass Glue-up and Top

02-03-2019 03:08 PM by BlueRidgeDog | 2 comments »

The result of this week. Carcass is glued up, all horizontal drawer webs are in and top is being tested for grain layout. After dry fitting the drawer webs last week I cut the dovetails for the top web: And in the panels: The arch stretcher had to be made before the glue-up. I used a flexible rod for the arc after the tenons were cut: After cutting on the bandsaw, I faired the arc with a plane, cabinet scrapper and hand scraper (the curve was gentle enough that t...
