Woodchips - August 2016

Hello all! Welcome to our newest forum. This thread will act as a chat room for anyone wanting to introduce themselves or just chat. Please read the posting rules for the forum.

I'm Ken. I started doing woodworking about 12 years ago with woodcarving. Then I did some model ship building out of wood and finally into more formal woodworking. I enjoy making boxes and a little furniture (bookshelves). A little after starting to work with wood I took up pencil drawing and found I could do that fairly well and enjoyed it. I suppose I'm something of a jack of several trades but I enjoy them all.

I'm pleased to meet all who come here. Please feel free to post threads of your wood working projects - we'd all love to see them.

Re: Woodchips - August 2016

Hi Ken, I have a couple of projects in mind, nothing on the scale of your easel.

First is a pochade box for plein air sketching, second is a folding support like James Gurney's plein air set up.

Hardware is a problem. I asked my son in Michigan to find me some 1/4 inch T-nuts and inserts as the 6mm metric ones over here don't fit mt tripod screws.

As I don't have any sophisticated power tools my larger project were mainly furniture made with teak faced particle board.

Doug

Dear oh dear Doug.

I've only got the mini lathe free from Rogers stuff in the workshop. Sander thicknesser blocking my access to the main woodfast lathe.

Marquetry stuff lies around. Sharp knives.

Living in the States, I have somewhat different suppliers, but I get a lot of my stuff from http://www.rockler.com/. I've no idea what shipping costs would be but they are a possibility.

Re: Woodchips - August 2016

Hi Annie ... welcome.

I have a friend who has made guitars for some rather famous people such as Charlie Daniels among others. His wife was in a band with me back in the late 70s and we've remained friends over the years. She does all his inlay work which is really quite an art form. My exposure to inlay is along the lines of Federal furniture - circa 1785-1820 with line and berry as well as a few bell flowers. Great fun.

I'm sort of anal about sharpening knives, chisels and plane irons. Mine go through a number of water stones and strops on a fairly regular basis. Dull tools are dangerous. The downside to all that however, is that I have to bring out my kitchen knives and keep fiddling with them as well.

A lathe is something I have never added to my shop ... room is a problem. That limits me on furniture building as well as projects though. One day ...
