Gallery Goodness, 6th December 2018

Another couple of weeks have flown by, and another impressive batch of photographs has rolled in. We have some beautiful furniture, some useful tools and even a few Christmas presents. I hope the recipients appreciate the amount of effort and skill that is going into these gifts!


Poor Man's Rebate Plane by L. Juday

Poor Man’s Rebate Plane by L. Juday

This is the first plane I’ve made. The wedge is ugly, the chisel is rusty, but boy does it work! I used a section of an old wooden level as the plane body, not sure of the wood. Maybe rosewood? Also pictured is the poor man’s router used in the project. Thanks so much to WWMC team for putting such great info out there!

As my dear old Mom used to say, now Paul see what you made me do! I will be 79 years old next month and had never been near a lathe but Paul gives me courage. I bought a “bench” lathe but it’s too heavy to put on and off my regular bench. I made a small version of Pauls bench to solve that problem–and even turned a knob from a Russian Olive branch cut down in my back yard a couple years ago.

Chessboard by Chay Wesley

Chessboard by Chay Wesley

A relative’s home suffered significant flooding and required removal of their Brazillian Cherry (Jatoba) hardwood flooring which had some historical sentimental value to them. I salvaged enough of it to make this chess board that might help carry their memories forward. I used the Brazilian Cherry for the border and dark squares, leaving some of the marks and dings in the border to preserve some character from its prior use as a floor, and then some maple I already had for the lighter color. I found the Brazilian Cherry very difficult to work, requiring near constant tool sharpening. Finished with shellac / wax and presented as a Christmas gift last year.
