Taper Pins - What a great tip!

07-09-2019 11:16 PM by totalrewind | 1 comment »

Inspired by a design by David P. the Drunken Woodworker, I recently built a picture frame sled for the tablesaw. Nothing too surprising there. Only instead of using toggle clamps I chose to use taper pins as endorsed by Sandor Nagyszalanczy in his EXCELLENT book “Woodshop Jigs & Fixtures” (ISBN 1-56158-073-2) What a taper pin is, briefly, is a pin… that’s tapered. (Woa. Slow down, there.) I guess they’re a top secret machinist’s trick for getting parts ...

Shop stuff #165: The final Roubo video

07-07-2019 12:22 AM by JimDaddyO | 3 comments »

Putting the final touches on the Roubo bench and getting it all buttoned up. Wow, what a journey and a learning experience. I love my new bench. 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

Through Tenon Repair on Windsor Chair

07-01-2019 03:46 AM by WoodshopTherapy | 4 comments »

I tackled a more challenging chair – a continuous back arm windsor chair. This had 6 through tenons in the arms and 2 through tenons in the seat. All of these were wedged and needed to be disassembled, new wedges made, and glued up all at once. I share my technique for keeping my chisels razor sharp too. I hope you enjoy this one! https://youtu.be/92deV01eWFU

Shop stuff #162: Finishing an acoustic guitar bone saddle.

06-13-2019 09:37 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Getting the carving done to intone a saddle on an acoustic guitar. This is a part 2 of a series, but there was also a video on Guitar intonation theory in between that I used this guitar for. There was also an older video on preparing raw bone for this purpose last year. Bone is a pretty neat medium to work with. A little different than wood, perhaps a little easier because there is no “grain” as such to take into account. View on YouTube

Shop stuff #161: Roubo vise completed

06-06-2019 04:07 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I built and installed the anti-racking device for the vise. I went kind of old school on it. It was easier than I thought. A couple of mortises, some holes and away we go. Now that the vise is functional it will soon be time to get into the final details of getting it all glued up and completed.

Bill Kappel starting Maloof style rocking chair class #3: murkiness exposed about the Maloof rocker

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. I had an operation a short while back and du...
