I made the Prospector in mahogany, trimmed in ash.
Created a decorative strip made up of 196 pieces on each side above the waterline.
It is a challenge but Ted Moore's book is very well written.
I did cane my own seats as well - another first.Ted's book was a bit short on this subject.
Now having that cd would have been great - come late than never Nick!
Easy guy, opinions were sought out and received.
Sure, some came off as being preachy, albeit well intentioned.
That's all, except I hope today is a better day for you.
Bottom line - they're your fingers.
Smacks of laziness and crude methodology to me.
And I'm no "purist" by a long shot.
There are enough ways of getting hurt in the shop with out forcing the issue.
Also, I find it hard to believe it leaves a smooth tenon.
The amount of ripple would be proportionate to how aggressive the stock is fed.
Besides, I prefer thin kerf blades.
So, no thank you.
Disclaimer - This is not to say I've never nibbled away stock in this fasion.
Now there's a project well done!
Gwyneth gw(y)-ne-th as a girl's name is of Welsh origin, and the meaning of Gwyneth is "happiness".
I'll second Lynford's comment.
There are a number of drawings I've passed on because I don't care to join social media groups.
Groov'n planes hipper than my plaid shirt!
I say pick your poison.
Because I've been screwed by inaccurate cutlists - I found myself wasting a lot of time verifying them. Even if they're spot on I still cut them strong, scribe and trim to fit.
Besides, more often than not I've scaled the project up or down to fit a specific nook.
A good undersatnading of proportions and furniture basics will take you further than a cutlist. And will serve you better in getting you to think, create and improvise for yourself.
I'd rather have the overall dimensions, expanded drawings and notes regarding any unique assembly concerns.
That's my wooden nickel's worth
That's some wicked figure!
Great way to show it off as well.
Making chairs has always been a daunting project.
Especially the testing phase!
A project I've been getting to for a little longer than forever. Sorry; but the wife won't see this.
I will say, it's just not right that your silverware matches.LOL
