Gallery Goodness, 30th July 2019

Hello all! It’s been a little while since the last gallery post, so we have quite a few new photos to get through. In a similar vein to previous posts, we’ve been sent some impeccably awesome imagery.

Garden Bench by Ian Hemphill

Garden Bench by Ian Hemphill

A big hello from the West Coast of Canada, Paul! And yet again another thank you for all the amazing things I’ve learned from you over the last couple of years. From not knowing which end of a chisel to hit, to clean crisp shoulders on wonderfully tight drawbore mortise and tenon joints. This bench was a pure joy to build – thank you for putting it on the projects list. (It will, of course face the opposite way, but I thought you might enjoy the view I’ll be taking in with my pre-workshop coffee in the mornings 😁.) This one is tight-knot pine, stained and finished with multiple coats of marine varnish to protect the best I can against our wet and salty air. Hand tools rule!


Trestle Table by Paul Stephen

Trestle Table by Paul Stephen

I had some 42″ long pieces of oak which had been intended for use as flooring, but that project went in a new direction. We needed a new dining table. This was built using Paul Sellers’ techniques. I did the basic design and my wife refined it. It’s my first “made by hand” piece and I’m quite happy with the result. All through the project, Paul Sellers’ voice was in my mind’s ear, keeping me company and guiding my work.

Shaker Style Sewing Cupboard and Desk by Harold Blair

Shaker Style Sewing Cupboard and Desk by Harold Blair

My wife is a weaver and requested I design and build her a desk and cupboard for her materials. Built from cherry, they are finished with multiple coats of hand-rubbed linseed oil and paste wax. In addition to two front drawers, the desk has a drawer on each end. The top piece is patterned after an old post office letter sorter. All drawers have half-blind dovetails for the front and full dovetails for the back. All vertical stiles have dados with two mortises to receive the tenons of each shelf. All joinery is done by hand following Paul’s teaching methods.

    Love them all, thanks for sharing. I could, however, see myself making two (2) of the “Shaker Style Sewing Cupboard and Desk” — one for my wife and daughters to use for sewing and quilting; and one for me to use as a gardening cupboard and desk to store seeds, supplies, catalogs, and small tools. Would love to obtain dimensions and plan.

    Maybe Paul would consider taking this on as a MW project …?
