Re: UPDATE: Hand Planing Techniques by Hendrik Varju

After FWW Live, I was so bitten by Roland's talk that I bought lots of hand planes that I am/will restore. Just need a bit more guidance on the use!

Re: Melody Bed

Very nicely done. I am sure that he will treasure his bed even more as he grows older. Not very many straight edges, lots of handwork and smoothing. Wow.

Re: Charles Rohlfs 1898 Desk Chair Reproduction

Woodbridge - Thanks. Since he was a patternmaker I thought this might be a possibility for him. Just worried about the long term durability of the chair with only screws. The other thought i had was that it might be an angled tenon nearly the same size of cross piece.

Very nice work and thanks for the reply. I did see all of your notes from the Lumberjocks website. Again, the extra angle on the cross piece is a nice touch.

Since I live in NJ, about 30 miles west of NYC, then I will pop into the Met and check it out.

All the best.


Re: Charles Rohlfs 1898 Desk Chair Reproduction

Looks great! I have been also thinking about making a Rohlfs chair. Bought the book to start researching, will have to go take a look in the Metropolitan for a good view. What type of joints did you use on the chair. Angled mortise and tenon, or did you do something different?
