It’s another special bumper edition today and we have the privilege of posting a plethora of positively praiseworthy pictures. So sit back, relax and scroll south!


Adjustable Baby/Toddler High Chair by Ian Hemphill

Adjustable Baby/Toddler High Chair by Ian Hemphill

I designed and built this adjustable baby/toddler high chair for my grandson’s first birthday. I repurposed some old ikea barrel bolts that I had kept kicking around, so that opening the sides to reposition the seat and footrest as he grows is easy, and the chair can be taken apart and stored flat when he grown out of it, waiting for HIS children. Or, it’s strong enough that I can replace the seat and footrest with steps for use as a kitchen stepladder when he grows out of it. The nuts for the barrel bolts are epoxied in place and covered with plugs,so they will never get lost, and the hex-wrench has a special home in one of the legs so that you never have to go looking for it. White oak side frames and red oak seat and back. It took a mashup of all the techniques that I’ve learned from Paul over the last few years, but it was tremendously satisfying! Hand tools rule 😊.

This is a culmination of all I’ve learned from Paul over the last 6 years. Dovetails, through-tenons, and housing dados were all incorporated in the design. Besides milling, everything was done with hand tools.

Saw Handle Reshaping by Ermir Agaci

Saw Handle Reshaping by Ermir Agaci

I reshaped the handle of the S&J tenon saw. No saw screws available, so I worked with the blade on. Amazing how some hours of rasp, file and sand paper work transform an ugly and uncomfortable handle. The saw works better now that it is a Spear & Jackson & Sellers.

I took notice about spoon carving Paul, and even though I’m trying to learn other skills, I found in spoon carving a very pleasant hobby! I used mulberry and a bit of kolrosing to enhance it.

    ERMIR AGACI,
    I see you made the “wiggly snake”. I started making the jig for doing
    the cuts but realized my back saw “kerf” may be to large. What size is the kerf on the saw you used for the snake ? My back saws kerf is 1.1mm(0.04″) and it has 13 TPI. What do you think ? Do I need a finer better back saw ? I don’t have 100 dollars to spend on a new saw.
    Thanks, Dave
