Cutlist Software

08-19-2019 06:08 AM by Rich | 5 comments »

Foreword: I’ve only been using this app for a couple of weeks. I expect to learn more as I go and will update this blog entry as I do. I thought about making this a review, but it’s really more a journal of my time looking for good apps to do cutlist layouts. I’m not talking about simply a list of the pieces that make up a project, I wanted to find a good app for doing the layout of those pieces, given the lumber I have available.

Sometimes you just get lucky. I found this one at a yard sale and was unsure of it’s date of manufacture, but I find out over the course of bringing it back to usable condition. This beauty was in pretty good shape for its age and now it can get back to doing what it was meant to do for another long while. View on YouTube

There will be some accessories to make for it in the future, but for right now, it is a fully functional Roubo. It came out very close to the original picture I had in my head. That was my plan, and I just kept making parts to suit that idea. View on YouTube

06-03-2019 02:51 PM by bkap | 3 comments »

Some murkiness exposed about the construction of the Maloof style rocker by Bill Kappel Murkiness would be an operative word because a good deal of construction detail is not clearly stated or reviled about this style rocker. Even Sam Maloof did not give full details for some of the fowling; seat creation, leg joints, leg shaping, arm attachment, back-slat mounting, headrest and runners.I have placed an where new information has been inserted.

Latest Q&A about the Mandocello build.

05-14-2019 10:43 PM by Tomy Hovington | 0 comments »

Since the early stages of building the Mandocello I have been adding Video Q&A to my YouTube Channel to allow the questions and answers to reach more people. At that point in time, My webpage was still far from it’s make over and this Blog was not in the back of my mind yet. But since there is a lot of information share in response to those great questions asked by the same people following this build, I thought this will fit right in with the tip and tricks Blog post.

Shop stuff #153: Yearly maintenance and adjusting.

03-22-2019 08:04 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »
