inspirations of box building #1: looking to up your game?

04-08-2020 05:58 PM by dclark | 0 comments »

Hello Lumberjocks, It’s been a long time since I last posted, and so I thought I should re-engage with this talented group of artisans. Several years ago I met Patrick Edwards of the American School of French Marquetry and got involved building the Chevalet kit for Students of Marquetry – and I’ve been busy with that ever since. Prior to that however, I was building boxes of all sorts and found many Lumberjocks were into making boxes as well – we’ve all seen ...

Re-creating Permaloid Totes and Knobs #1: Part 1

03-23-2020 02:53 PM by poopiekat | 30 comments »

The public’s fascination with space-age materials in the 1950’s gave rise to the use of so-called ‘Permaloid’ as an alternative material for tool handles of every description.

I recently had a customer bring me a chair to repair. It had a missing stretcher, but I didn’t worry about it since I added a lathe to my workshop last year. I also have a lot more confidence now in matching stain… and this one was spot on… the customer couldn’t pick out which stretcher I made for the chair. You can watch the process on my latest YouTube video. I make these videos to share my knowledge and teach others how to repair furniture. I hate to see woo...

Making parts #3: Final Step = making donuts

02-29-2020 11:07 PM by Dan Krager | 6 comments »

The final step in this project is well underway. It involves drilling and tapping the hole to match the nibs, and then slicing off the nuts from hex stock. Pretty straightforward. One side of the nut is ever so slightly rounded (edges eased) while the other side is flat. Makes for a nice looking finished nut when installed, I hope. The parting tool is working perfectly, leaving a nice flat back with a tiny burr where it breaks into the thread. It is easily removed with a chamfer tool and ...
