Building a Portfolio

Northwest Woodworking - Wed, 05/17/2017 - 9:47am

Any good portfolio takes time to build. Just like the construction of a piece of furniture is an accumulation of days and hours of effort, so too is that compendium of your work.

Where to start? Start at the beginning. Take a photo of every piece you make so that years from now you can smile at yourself and say, “Oh I was young then. I’ve learned so much now.” And it will be true. There is much to discover and rediscover along the way as we develop our habits at the bench or with the pencil and drawing.

The Mastery Program is an opportunity to jump start that portfolio building. You will build more creative work in the one year or two year program than you most likely ever will again. It is a chance that you will take on yourself, on your own growth as a designer, and on your progression as a builder of fine objects.

Take the chance. Invest in yourself. http://northwestwoodworking.com/mastery-programs/local-mastery

Joseph Walsh: Genius Furniture Maker and Artist, Now on Display in New York City – Part 2

Popular Woodworking Editors Blog - Wed, 05/17/2017 - 6:49am

One of the most impressive pieces of furniture in the show is a tall, pod-like cabinet that was commissioned by a wrist-watch collector. To house the collection, Joseph built a stacked cluster of drawers that pivot out on arms of bronze and stainless steel. It is not surprising that the drawer mechanism is as beautiful as the piece itself. The watch trays are lined with pear wood and individually sculptured […]

@ Handworks – Original Roubo Print 284

The Barn on White Run - Wed, 05/17/2017 - 4:11am

There might be no more visually exuberant print in all of L’art du Menuisier than Plate 284, “Different Ways to Arrange Veneers.”  It is only one of many consecutive illustrations wherein Roubo is presenting the principles of composition for parquetry and as he calls it, “simple veneerwork.”  The remaining plates in this series are ones I am keeping myself.

Like almost all the prints in my inventory this one was drawn and engraved by Roubo himself.

If you have ever wanted to own a genuine piece of Rouboiana, this is your chance.   I will be selling this print at Handworks on a first-come basis, with terms being cash, check, or Paypal if you have a smart phone and can do that at the time of the transaction.

A Sense of Community

Tools For Working Wood - Wed, 05/17/2017 - 4:00am
Bill Robertson's miniature toolkit on display at Handworks 2015
As we head off to Handworks 2017, I find myself really looking forward to the feeling I have had at the two previous Handworks show, namely, being part of a community.
In a way, it's not a shock that the marvelous tool show that Jameel, Father John and the whole Handworks team have developed should inspire such a feeling. After all, we assemble together from all parts of the country, diverse in our backgrounds, political views and other interests, but united in our great appreciation and involvement in woodworking and hand tools. For the time we are together, our unity and sense of purpose is evident.
Surprisingly, lately I have been feeling a sense of community from a less obvious (to me, anyway) source: Instagram.
Tools for Working Wood's Instagram account was built up by thirtysomething TFWWers, visual artists who were already on Instagram. Initially Instagram participation seemed like one more item on a Things To Do list, so I wasnt sold. But more recently Ive been surprised how much Ive enjoyed playing - both as a exhibitor and as a viewer.
Look! Theres a beautiful piece of furniture handcrafted in Australia. Look! Flowers and produce from Theres Hepzibah Farms, the Talledega, Alabama farm owned by Charlie, TFWWs very first employee. Look, theres an amazing guitar crafted by our customer. Look, a new Lost Art Press book. A new tool, a new cabinet, a new celebrant of our ancient craft of woodworking.
By giving me a chance to see their work, and by tipping their hats - with likes, comments, and questions - to my news, we establish community.

Over the next couple of days some of us with come full circle, as Instagram friends meet in person for the first time at Handworks -- and real-life admirers become Instagram followers. These actions will add a welcome new dimension to our relationships, but fundamentally we already have something important in place: a shared sense of community.

The picture above is of a miniature toolkit and other items by Bill Robertson who showed off some of his work at Handworks 2015. One of the nation's foremost miniaturists he works to dollhouse scale so that lathe is only a few inches long. Everything Bill makes actually works - which is totally amazing. I am looking forward to seeing him again this week.

Jim McConnell, from his excellent blog The Daily Skep:Last week...

Giant Cypress - Wed, 05/17/2017 - 3:08am


Jim McConnell, from his excellent blog The Daily Skep:

Last week I went to visit someone in the hospital and found that nearly every surface in their room had a wood grain pattern laminated onto it. It wasn’t wood, of course, but it was made to look as wood-like as possible. The intent of the designer was to create an inviting atmosphere conducive to healing, and yet running my hand over the wood-like plastic left me confused and cold. It was a mixed message.

For me, all of this reinforces the belief that there is something deep in our psyche that thrills at the natural and dramatic variation in wood, and connects to the tactile warmth under the fingers. Consequently, there is something that comes un-moored when these touch-points are absent. This connection is so powerful that even fake wood is better than no wood for some people. For the rest of us, this is why we work with wood.

This photo is from my day job. It’s a part of the hallway in the pediatric surgery suite where the kids are rolled in and out of the operating room. Even though the kids won’t be touching the wall, since they’re on a stretcher, and even though the amount of contact time that the kids have with this section of hallway is measured in seconds as they wheel by, I find it significant that we went to the effort of making this small part of the hospital more inviting by putting these panels on the wall, even if we had to settle for fake wood.

The One-Day Storage Cabinet - Part II: Complete

Toolerable - Wed, 05/17/2017 - 2:38am
Mostly complete.

This cabinet was a lot of fun to build. It did wind up going a tiny bit over my budgeted time allowance of one day, but that was expected. Wasn't it?

Monday I started early and was excited to get this quick and dirty project over with. I spent some well-used time laying out everything to decide the dimensions of the cabinet. The board I had for the top, which came from the store at supposedly 800mm x 500mm x 28mm needed to be squared up. Once that was done, I had the width dimension for my cabinet.

After lunch, I wound up taking a quick power nap that wound up lasting about three hours. Ooops! I suppose I shouldn't have lain awake half the night thinking about this project.

Due to this delay, I didn't finish on time. By dinner time, I had cut the dadoes and fit the two shelves.
End of Day 1

The positive part of all that thinking was I decided to screw together the carcass with only enough fasteners to hold it together until it was painted. I could then knock the nails in without doing anything too weird to clean the nail heads off.

Next up was dovetailing a rail in the front and sliding a rail cut into a groove into the back. These two boards seem overly wide for their purpose, but I figured I would save time ripping them to width. I forgot that later on I needed one of these boards for something else, but too late now!

I was careful to lay out where the nails would go at this point. I drilled tapered pilot holes for the nails everywhere they would go, but I only put in a few temporary screws to hold everything together until later.
End of Day 2
Day three was about the back. I spent a bit of time sharpening the blade on a vintage French side-bead molder I've been lugging around. I'm not sure I like it, but it will be fine for this project. I used my home-made plane with a nailed on fence and a chisel for a blade to cut these ship laps. It was then just a matter of drilling pilot holes and nailing them to the shelves. I chose to clench the nails for fastening to the rear rail. I wasn't sure of a better way to do that.
End of Day 3
I finished the carcass and painted it with some commercial chalk paint I found at a store nearby. The color is graphite. After painting over the screws and all, I drove nails into the holes that had no fasteners before backing out the screws and replacing them with nails. The screws I used were only about an inch and a half long, and the nails almost three inches. This seemed to work perfectly.
End of Day 4
The next day I hung the door panels to the carcass. I wasn't sure the best way to fit and adjust everything. With pocket hinges there are all kinds of adjustments you can make to ensure the door hangs right, but with barrel hinges you only get one chance. It dawned on me that since my door panels were a little oversize, I could hang them as is, then trim to size and everything should look perfect. Lucky me, it worked!
End of Day 5
Now I have to attach battens to the doors to ensure they stay flat over time. This was what I needed one of those wider boards for that I used earlier for the front and rear rails! I decided instead to use some air dried sycamore that I have. It required that I cut it to length, then I resaw it for pieces about 7/8" thick. Clenching nails always makes so much noise, I feel sorry for the neighbors. I did one door, then decided to leave the other one for Monday when I could blame the noise on the contractors in another apartment.
End of Day 6
Finally, it is done. Mostly. The doors have battens attached with clenched nails, and the top has a nice chamfer and the decision was made to leave it a natural wood finish rather than painted. This little cabinet really dominates a room since it is so dark in color. The thought was the top would lighten it up a bit. I finished the top with a coat of BLO, then applied some home-made paste wax over the entire cabinet. I really like the look.
End of Day 7
I'm still thinking about knobs for the door handles. Nails wound up in exactly the place that I wanted to put the knobs, and the cabinet is a bit too rustic for the modern knobs we bought. I'm thinking some old-fashioned porcelain knobs would be just the thing to finish it off.

I'm happy with the result, even though it did go past my deadline a bit.

just the frame and ..........

Accidental Woodworker - Wed, 05/17/2017 - 12:57am
Today we finally had a decent spring day for the month of  May. The temp hit almost 79F/26C on my porch thermometer and tomorrow it is supposed to be in the low 80'sF/27'sC. It was sunny and breezy all day long which was very much welcomed. For the last week or so it has been raining off and on with one cloudy day after another. It was nice to finally go to work this morning without having to wear a jacket. I should be able to do this now till at least october.

it's faded a bit
It is black but it shows a lot of brown in it too. This is only the third application so there is still a ways to go.

the outside rabbet
This part was a light brownish color with a lot of white yesterday. It looks like I did miss it or maybe it just needed a couple applications to darken up.

the inside rabbet
This also darkened up a lot too.  This will be hidden by the matting but I don't want to chance any light reflecting off this if it isn't black.

tannic acid applied
Nice and black again. After the tannic acid I put on the iron followed again by tannic acid. I did this so that the last application will be tannic acid which makes the frame blacker than the iron does.

getting closer
This should be done ebonizing this weekend and then I can apply the finish. The finish will be shellac and then it is off to the frame shop to get the the certificate mounted and matted.

shucks, it is 2 1/4" wide  (5 1/2 iron)
 I learned in twenty years in the Navy to only 'expect what you inspect'. Here I didn't inspect and ass-u-me-d that this was a 2 3/8" wide iron. The inspection tonight showed me that I was OTL on that thought.

I did this
The lever cap from the 4 1/2 and the 5 1/2 match. There is maybe a frog hair difference in the width of the two at the most. From this bit of brilliance, I deduced that the iron was 2 3/8" wide. I checked and inspected the lever caps but didn't repeat with the irons.

the 4 1/2 iron doesn't fit the 5 1/2
This I didn't do. I thought since the chipbreakers were the same, the irons had to be the same. I was wrong and the irons were right.

4 1/2 lever cap in the 5 1/2
the 5 1/2 lever cap in the 4 1/2
It's a good fit of the 4 1/2" lever cap in the 5 1/2". There isn't as much wiggle room with the 4 1/2 lever cap in the 5 1/2 but there is some and it fits.

my japanese 4 1/2 iron
Since this is a metric equivalent of 2 3/8" inches I thought it might fit. It is inbetween 2 5/16 and 2 3/8. Checked the fit but no joy in Mudville.

I'm screwed on having an extra 5 1/2 iron
I read over Patrick Leach's blood and gore on the 5 1/2 and it was not encouraging at all. It seems the width of the iron for the 5 1/2 I have (2 1/4" wide) are as easy to come by as bucket full of hens teeth.

Nothing came in today and nothing was up on the tracking sites for anything neither. It is looking like I'll be getting my toys on friday or saturday. Maybe, I'll know better when the tracking numbers get up on the USPS site.

Free-Form Dulcimer Making

Doug Berch - Tue, 05/16/2017 - 10:06pm

Bartione dulcimer soundboard layoutI have basic patterns for my dulcimers but the the exact shape and size of each dulcimer varies slightly from one dulcimer to the next. I have embraced a fairly free-form style of building and use very few jigs, forms, and fixtures.

By building free-form I feel like I am sculpting a dulcimer rather than making a bunch of parts and assembling them. The frame of the dulcimer (sides and end blocks) and the fretboard become the reference points for laying out the rest of instrument. I can make small changes to the shape and size of the dulcimer by feel and eye and work with it until everything seems right to me.

The thickness of the top and back and the bracing pattern are determined in a similar manner.

Free-form building is not the most efficient way to make dulcimers in a timely manner. If I made all the parts to a set pattern and assembled them in fixtures I would make more dulcimers in less time but I wouldn’t enjoy the process very much.

Laying out position markers and soundholes on a baritone dulcimer These photographs are of a baritone dulcimer in progress. The final shape of the dulcimer is traced on the soundboard and the soundholes are laid out using a template. I have also laid out the placement of the position markers on the fingerboard. A scraper serves as a short straight edge for drawing the layout lines.

Making sure everything is where it belongsAlso important are notes to myself to make sure everything goes where it is supposed to go. There is a reason I do this. Guess what happened the last time I didn’t do this!

Welsh Staked Stools-Part 1

Hillbilly Daiku - Tue, 05/16/2017 - 5:00pm

I have been having a lot of fun with then lathe, but it is time to get back on track.  I have two new tables that are in desperate need of some sort of accompanying seating.  To that end my first run at keeping butts off the floor will be four Welsh inspired stools.

I’m lucky in that Chris Schwarz just completed a run of High Staked Stools built in this manner.  So he effectively did all of my prototyping for me (thanks Chris!).  He worked through several seat, leg and stretcher shapes in his process.  His posts about them allowed me to see the forms, eliminate options and firm up my own plans.

My version will draw visual elements from my tables and will be a couple of inches higher than a standard dinning chair.  It has been my experience that stools matching dinning chair height always feel too short in use.  There is a delicate balance between seating height, the sitter’s center of gravity and the back of chair.  Remove the back and everything feels off.  So my stools will be a little higher to try to bring things back into balance (I hope).

To finalize my design I worked up a proportional drawing.

These four stools will have SYP seats, red oak legs and white oak stretchers.  I began by milling the red oak leg stock.

Then laid them out to be tapered octagons.

To shape the legs, I first removed the bulk of the waste with a drawknife at the shaving horse.  Then refined the octagon with a plane.

On all of my previous staked projects I have used the Veritas tapered tenon cutter and reamer.  They work well, but I will be trying out a 1″ diameter round tenon method on these stools.  From what I can find this method was used by John Brown and was recently demonstrated in Don Weber’s video “Build a Welsh Stick Chair”.  Thanks to the new lathe, creating the 1″ tenons is quite easy.

After an afternoon of work, I have all of the legs ready to go.

Next I’ll work on the seats.

Heading to Iowa

Brese Plane - Tue, 05/16/2017 - 2:17pm
The Handworks event in Amana Iowa is upon us. All shipments have been sent and received, all that's left is for us to travel there on Thursday to make ready our bench for Friday morning.

Being no rookie to major hand tool woodworking shows, I do have a bit of a different situation for this event. In the past I was only in a position to take on commissions in order to make planes for customers. This year however I will actually have two planes available for sale at this event.

The first plane available is a Winter Smoother. As you can see in the pics below this plane features rosewood knob and tote. The brass bits on this tool have a patina'd finish and an oil finish has also been applied to the aged brass bits of this plane.



I've always loved this combination of metal and wood. I've reluctantly shipped several with this combination of materials.







The splash of sapwood on the bottom edge of the tote creates a lovely contrast. This pic depicts a very inviting view of the tote. Nothing looks quite as contrasting as cocobolo.

I had to take all self preserving precautions in order to be able to work this material without adverse effects on my body. This included wearing vinyl gloves, a respirator, a long sleeve shirt and being very anal about proper dust collection during the entire process. One lesson I learned quite a bit ago. If you have the dust on your gloves or your hands don't touch any other parts of your body until you removed the gloves or thoroughly washed your hands.




The next tool that will be available is a Macassar Ebony Jack/Panel plane. As you can see in the pics the body is made from Macassar Ebony with olive wood decorative strike button.




 This tool has a unique, multi-facetted wedge design and I have found that any adjustments that need to be made to the iron can be accomplished by either striking the iron or the flat spot on the top of the wedge. The top of the wedge sets up quite well to the user. One only needs to strike down on the top of the wedge in lieu of having to swing the hammer down the line of the iron. Tap the iron to increase the cutting depth, strike the top of the wedge to decrease the depth of cut and to set the wedge.



The mouth on this tool is set to allow jack plane type shavings thru, yet also tight enough to do panel plane type smoothing as well.




The Macassar Ebony Shooting board plane below is a new idea that I've been pursuing. I'm sure Larry Williams and Don McConnell of Old Street Tools would tell me that this is technically called a Strike Box plane. This plane is already spoken for, however if you're at Handworks stop by my bench and give it a go.



It features an infill type lever cap. With the iron pitched at 38 degrees I decided I would rather depend on a lever cap to hold the adjustment on the iron in lieu of a wedge. The added benefit of the lever cap is less interference with your hand hold and position on the plane. 

The forward area of the mouth has a gentle sigma curve ending in a stopped rabbit at the top of the plane. This ejects the shavings quite efficiently and lends some elegance of detail to this form.



This plane also has the signature knob positioned in just the right location to give you distinct control of the cut. This plane weighs in a 8 lbs. which gives it plenty of mass for shooting task.





Another plane that will be residing on my bench at Handworks will be the Winter Panel Plane that I completed earlier this year for Bo Childs. This plane features a stainless steel body, brass lever cap and knob seat and Macassar ebony wooden bits. Bo was generous to allow me to show his plane at this event.






The only regret I have is that it was not practical to bring my Nicholson bench to the Handworks event. Jameel and I debated this while he was here for a visit recently. Ultimately we decided that shipping my bench to Iowa and back would put too much hard work at risk of being damaged during the shipping process.



Hope to see you at Handworks,

Ron

New eBooks Now Available!

The Mortise & Tenon Magazine Blog - Tue, 05/16/2017 - 1:32pm

 

At long last, the new eBooks are now available!

Over and over we’ve heard from readers that being able to see the guts of the pieces that are only ever displayed behind velvet ropes has been revolutionary to their shop practice. Seeing what historic hand-tool work looks like is inspiring and empowering because you quickly realize which parts are important to fettle and which aren’t. The feedback we’ve got about the photo essays in each issue of M&T has been encouraging. People said they loved the Federal Boston secretary in Issue One and the New England Queen Anne drop-leaf table in Issue Two.

These new books of photography showcase the hundreds of other photographs we couldn’t fit in print. There is so much more to learn from these pieces and this is our way of bringing it to you. These will never be available in print because they are intended to be a compliment to the print-only magazine.

Our goal with these eBooks is to make them as easy to use and instructive as we can. To that end, we are selling them in a DRM-free PDF format. This makes it easy to download the books onto your tablet, phone, computer, or whatever. You can put them on as many of your own devices as you wish and you can even print it out!

The other benefit to having these offered as eBooks is the ability to enlarge the photographs to see more detail, something you can’t do with print. Without DRM to secure the books, these are theoretically left vulnerable to theft by unscrupulous people. We’re not worried about that. Mike and I pour ourselves into M&T and feed our families with your support. We trust our customers not to steal these books from us.

As we were designing these books, I commented to Mike how I wished I had this kind of thing years ago. It is a shame that the comprehensiveness of this photography is available nowhere else because seeing period work for ourselves is the key to unlocking the efficiencies of hand-tool woodworking. M&T exists to make that kind of knowledge accessible.

The books are $8 each and feature a ton of photographs. You can order yours here.

Why You Need a Sharp, Steely Leader

The Purge

The Slightly Confused Woodworker - Tue, 05/16/2017 - 8:41am

I am at the point in my woodworking career where I have too many tools. Did I just say that? The guy who has always said to have as many tools as you like as long as you can afford them and store them…Yeah, I did, but it’s not what you think. I have not been woodworking nearly as much as I would like lately. And, the woodworking I have been doing basically requires a block plane, a spokeshave, a saw, a hammer, and a few chisels.

I have very seriously been considering selling off a good portion of my stuff to create some much needed space in my garage. The workbench already has a home if I go through with this (and I have an unassembled one ready to go if and when I ever start seriously woodworking again). The table saw will be a bit harder to move, both on the market as a for sale item, and physically, as it is large and heavy, but first things first. Some of the tools already have local buyers, some I will sell on eBay, and If I may be so bold, some I may just be posting right here on this blog. I hate to solicit people who just happen to be reading my blog, but rest assured most of my tools are of very good quality, and my prices will be more than fair.

Before I go, I just want to stress that I am not ending my woodworking “career”. I will still woodwork, and I will still restore an old tool or two on the rare occasion, and I will still blog about what I am doing But we all know that woodworking takes a lot of time (at least for a person of my skill level).  I’m pretty sure my family feels somewhat abandoned by me (working six days a week and spending what little free time I have engrossed in hobbies will do that to a family), so I have to do whatever it takes to fix that problem.

I had no problem ending my brief return to music this past week. This will be a little more difficult, but it needs to be done. We need the space, I don’t have the time, and I would feel better if those tools were being used by people who will appreciate them and put them to work.

How Does Woodworking Affect Your Brain?

Highland Woodworking - Tue, 05/16/2017 - 7:00am

What is the Actual Effect of Woodworking on Your Brain?

by Bob Rummer


For many of us woodworking is a chosen leisure activity that we take up because it makes us “feel good.” There may be challenges, frustrations, and hard work involved but overall woodworking makes us happy. Now, I am not a psychologist, but I have read a lot of scientific literature on this topic and would like to share some general perspectives on woodworking and your mental health.

@ Handworks 2017 – Original Roubo Print 283

The Barn on White Run - Tue, 05/16/2017 - 4:48am

This morning’s offering from L’art du Menuisier is Print 283, “The Ways to Cut Veneers.”  It is a delightfully esoteric visual didactic on the orientation of the lumber and the saw to yield the most interesting veneers for the ebeniste.

Like almost all the prints in my inventory this one was drawn and engraved by Roubo himself.

If you have ever wanted to own a genuine piece of Rouboiana, this is your chance.   I will be selling this print at Handworks on a first-come basis, with terms being cash, check, or Paypal if you have a smart phone and can do that at the time of the transaction.
