  1. Glastonbury chairs

    This was a commission for a pair of medieval Glastonbury chairs. Removing the wedges from the through tenons allows the chairs to break down into about 17 pieces each for ease of transportation. Notice that I do not say ease of assembly…..
  2. German fauldstool

    This is a reproduction of a medieval German fauldstool commissioned by a harpist. The seat is actually a little lower than a normal seat so the he could lean the harp back against him to play.
  3. From Another Millenium

    We had a clear-out and up popped this. It dates from the mid-1980's, when I didn't have a proper workshop and did all my woodwork on a Black and Decker Workmate (knockdown bench) in the back yard, on the few good days we have in England. I believe I used a Bosch 1/4" Router and the timber was...
  4. Osberg Ship Bed

    I and several of my fellow SCA shire members, several years ago, crafted beds in the style of the one found in Osberg Ship Burial. They are crafted entirely of wood, with no metal or glue. This one is made to hold a modern queen-size mattress and is crafted of ash. The only difference between...
  5. viking-style mortise & tenon & tusk tenon couch

    This project is about building relatively historical knock-down furniture for a medieval reenactment event. As far as I know, what we think of as a couch (with a padded back) isn't historically accurate before he 1700s, even early 1800s, unless you're in the mid-east (in which case they were...
  6. Roman plane replica

    Here is my blog showing the construction and historical details of this re-construction. The iron and wedge are purely conjectural as these parts did not survive being in the bog for nearly 2000 years. I had great difficulty over the location of the cross-pin with respect to the back ramp. No...

  9. Historic murals in small park

    I volunteer on a local citizens group to improve the quality of life of current residents of our little town, plus attract more visitors to dine and shop. Our little town has a lot of history, and we thought the addition of historic murals would help bring some of this history to life. One...

  11. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    While surfing around the web looking at woodworking related articles I ran across a site that shows how a guy made a full size copy of the Liberty Bell http://www.ringlibertyring.com/ - entirely out of wood. It's pretty interesting and he is very talented. Thought some of you might find it...
  12. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Our stone house has windows that slide against the original 4"x 4" window frame. My plan is to install Andersen inserts to replace them, giving up a little glass area to house the Andersen window frame. Has anyone done a similar project? My idea is to create an insert for the window, so that...

    Piatt Castles in Ohio Hi Lumberjocks, I took some inspiration from my Lumberjocks Buddy and went on a Mark Wilson style caper yesterday - a roadtrip to the Piatt Castles in West Liberty Ohio. Two grand 19th century mansions built by a set of brothers. Stopped my little red car at Mac-A-Cheek...

  17. Wood & Lumber
    I saw this the other day and seriously wished I lived closer to the person selling this monster 56"x62" redwood burl table. It's too big to reasonably ship, but if a fellow LJ is close enough to want to bid on it, I think they'd be in for a treat! Here's the listing that ends in a little over 4...
  18. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Did a table saw alignment and noticed table saw belts weren't tight. While trying to do that, noticed that the motor mount bolt wouldn't tighten b/c of bad thread on the cast iron sleeve. Figured I can get a longer bolt and attach a nut to the other end. Anyone recommend aganist this? While...
  19. Hand Tools
    Hello, I am wondering if anyone knows of a forum that is 100% hand tool only without exception or, if not, if anyone would be interested in one. I am interested in this for a few reasons. One reason is that I have a disability that prevents me from using any type of power tool. Another...
  20. Woodworking Skill Share
    Wasn't sure where on LJ to pose the question. Has anyone out there in LJ land purchased lumber online? Any great experiences? Any bad experiences? I don't have a jointer/planer and I'm looking to purchase dimensional maple/cherry in 3/4" thickness. I know it is more expensive than planing your...
