Re: Why a guy needs a big saw.

Nice, man. I loved my Felder. Probably never have the space for one again. Enjoy yourself!

Re: Staked Stool

The black is just the one coat. When that dried, I went over all with #000 steel wool. Smooths it out and cuts through to the red a little. It's fairly easy to control how much red is exposed, but...

Re: Staked Stool

Thanks gents. Of course I had intended from the beginning to paint the legs of this stool, and leave the seat natural. Painted chairs is part of the Windsor tradition, and chair makers like Peter...

Re: Staked Stool

The legs will be painted, not the top.

Re: Staked Stool

Thanks Neil, it is very strong. In some ways I wish it were a little heavier visually just to inspire confidence in the structure, but Iíve gotten to like it. I might could have used a 1/2í tenon...

Re: Staked Stool

The two spindles and the stretcher were shaped just like the legs. Eight sided, sixteen sided, then round with block plane and spokeshaves.

Re: Staked Stool

After fitting the leg tenons nicely, I roughed out the spindles and stretcher on the bandsaw. They look pretty crude in this state. I also bored the holes for the stretcher through tenons in the...

Re: Staked Stool

Finished eight siding the legs, and cut the tapered tenons in each one with a Veritas jig. Inexpensive, and works quite well. I got a 5/8" tapered cutter which is the largest one. 5/8" to 1-1/8" in...

Re: Staked Stool

Those whales are called ducks which are really spline weights, and the prong goes down in a little groove in the top of a plastic spline. The weights are used to hold the spline in a curve, mostly...

Re: Staked Stool

With the tapered mortises done, I moved on to the legs. I did not design, or draw this bench to scale, just climbed up on the ladder and pulled down some scraps and off-cuts to see what I had that...

Re: Staked Stool

Thanks guys. I have found Chris Schwarz's book to be very useful for this stuff, with clear explanations. He's an accomplished chair builder too, with a clean eye. I quite like his take on the Welsh...

Staked Stool

My boat building career seems to be on hold for the time being. I don't have any money to build another one, and it looks like nobody is writing checks at the moment. I've been interested in chair...

Re: Felder

Would be good blade storage. A lot of people do that. Mine were in the drawers under the outfeed table.

Re: Felder

Dang, I was sure I replied to this before. I had a 5 hp on both motors, and never regretted the smaller motor, but I did most of my solid wood ripping on the bandsaw. So a lot of the work the saw did...

Re: Yet Another Bench Thread

Not afraid to use it! I moved the bench into it's position on the tool wall, and started doing stuff.

I cheated. Copied the image to my hard drive, rotated in Photoshop, and loaded that to my server.

Re: Hal Taylor rocker

This is a really nice project. I'm in the infant stages of the chair making exploration myself. Will take a while before I tackle a complex project like you have going. Chairs are a logical step when...

Re: Yet Another Bench Thread

The top, and the other parts for that matter, sat around for quite a while, but I was pleased that the top stayed reasonably flat. It had a slight hollow in the top, no more that 1/16", so I called...

Re: Yet Another Bench Thread

On this bench, I used a Benchcrafted Crisscross classic leg vise, with the tommy bar instead of the wheel. On the end, I used a Columbian steel vise for the tail vise. It's not quick release, but...

The top is connected to the base with floating tenons, plus lag bolts from under the end rails. These bolts run through elongated slots to allow movement of the top, but the top is registered flush...

Re: Yet Another Bench Thread

To continue- The legs and rails were glued up similarly from 2 8/4 thicknesses. I need to be able to knock this bench down into movable (barely) components, so I glued up permanently only the leg end...
