    Great story. The best part is the obligatory and totally random incorporation of whiskey into the tradition.

    I fitted the spindles today. I am enjoying using the brace and auger bits. It really does afford me more control than the powered drill because of the reduced speed, and longer reference that the bit...

    I am blessed to have a good amount of fresh red and white oak in my area of New Jersey. I'm new to riving, but find it satisfying and quite straight forward. I am only on my 2nd chair, so I am...

    I prefer the stretcher high enough off the floor so it's easy to sweep under. My stretcher supports a single shelf that stores planes and other things I might reach often for. The higher the...

    You might consider an oil-varnish blend like Watco Danish Oil. These products are applied just as pure oil: wipe on, wipe off. This adds more protection and a more lasting sheen that pure oil...

    I have that Rockler unit (the Woodcraft version, which is the same I think). Ultimately I upgraded to a better unit.

    I still use that cheap unit often. It sprays 'thin' materials well, like...

    Base assembled

    I really like his method of wedging the tenons. Prior to this, I cut them with a saw. It was awkward to hold them in a vise and guess the proper depth. It was also tricky to get the line perfectly...

    I've been working on the base. It's a struggle to hold the assembly steady for drilling. If you don't own ratchet straps, I find it easier to leave the top side edges and bottom surface level and...

    Dumb question: where are the pulls located for this case? I like that mitered, inset face frame. The more I look at it, the more I realize I haven't seem much like that, and that it would be...

    I take your point. What I mean is that even on chairs where I don't have a sharp or crisp edge at the scoop, it's hard - after the carving wheel - for me to flatten the divots right near the edge of...

    I just cancelled my FWW subscription. I used it mainly for design inspiration. Nowadays, SMC, Instagram, Pinterest, and plain-ol-Google are more efficient.

    It's sad. I have no beef with FWW. I...

    That came out great! If you haven't done the other legs yet, IMHO, you should really cut your mortises first. It makes things much easier later.

    If you already have a 6, then it makes sense to get a 3". The 'lip' of the scoop is really hard to define crisply. Have you tried scrapers there?

    I like to joint the edges. It solves many problems: square, cut marks, burn marks.

    Your blade is probably dull, or you're feeding a tad too slow - but with a sharp blade, this doesn't matter too...

    Depends what you use your MDF tops for. Personally, for shop cabinets, I think shellac is good. It sticks to anything, seals against glue spills, sands smooth easily, dries easily.

    These spindles have been riven from red oak and steam bent using the same form as the posts. I did these a while ago, planning to make Peter Galbert's Rocker. They sat around for a year, waiting...

    IMHO, for sanding seats and curved crests, you can use a 5" sander. Many sanders (like my Ceros, and I'm sure the Deros) have aftermarket soft or medium pads available. You can also get foam "soft...

    What type of cut are you looking to make?

    The irony of the tenon saw is I rarely use mine for tenons. it's too tall and unwieldy to be used that easily at first, IMHO.

    I also think Ryobas are...

    Steam bending

    The bend on the crest was a little drastic for my taste. The lamination had no springback. i decided to try to bend a solid piece. My first attempt, steaming for 90 minutes did not work. The...

    The #8 (1/2") worked fine out of the bag. The feeding tip on the #6 (3/8") keeps stripping out as soon as the spurs engage. I tried drilling a pilot hole but have not been successful. In...

    Yes. The beauty is that the little 1/2" lip is a cinch to plane by hand. You will also have the 2+" of the table sawn face to serve as a reference for the sole of your plane, so it's not like it...
