Thread: Christmas Card Holders
24/12/2012 08:18:04

I am fairly sure I so an article recently on Christmas card holder designs and cannot find it anywhere -

The metal one's we have have come to their end of their uselessness (they were never any good) and thought it would be a good idea to make some for next year (and score a few brownie points) -

Has anyone any goods plans or can you point me in the direction of a project?

Hello Brian,

I purchased the SIP P/T (looks like all the other brands - just a different paint job!) and have generally been pleased with it - however I now wish I would have saved up my pennies and gone for a triple blade cast iron bed machine -

Bill - I dont post much at all these days - but did notice your absence - I always appreciated your advice in the past and nice to see you back again - Can't believe you run your workshop on a generator!


Thread: Large Doll Cot

Made a large cot for a doll for my daughter for Christmas - just in the nick of time. Not a patch on the very lovely one made by Ian - but it serves a purpose!!


I also made a really lovely walnut bowl for another relative - but my wife had wrapped & shipped it before I could even take a picture!

The chances of me getting on again before the big day is very unlikely - so may I take the opportunity to wish everyone best wishes, good health and prosperity for the forthcoming New Year.


Thread: Spinning stool

It also looks like a Welsh spinning stool as well Ron - going off the design that is -

Not that I am an expert - but is that a dragon near the base? - as the splat looks like a welsh love spoon?

Very nice job by the way -

Thread: Chaise Longue
26/10/2012 07:27:52

Very sorry to hear about your accident Tony -

Tiredness is always an issue - I should know, as a hobby woodworker I often do not get in the shed until after 7:30 and often work through till after 11:30 - and getting up at 06:15 everyday takes it toll at some point.

I am having a few days off next week with the family so may not get all my messages straight away - but please do not rush on my account -

The fact that I will be starting before Christmas is a major 'brownie point', again, PLEASE do not feel compelled to do it straight away, recouperate first!

Thank you again,


26/10/2012 07:19:51

Sorry Paul - did not know what the salvager was until last night!!

24/10/2012 14:05:15

Don't think the Belgians were ever into that one Richard - just their neighbours!


Shame the pictures are not a bit better - but it looks to me like the blocks are cut at a 45 degree angle - which confused me even more (not difficult embarrassed)


23/10/2012 09:49:09

Hello all,

We have some friends in Belgium who knew a carpenter that passed away some time ago and this is one of the items that was left in his workshop - and nobody knows what it is - I certainly have no idea -

Can anyone shed any light on this?

. It is about 6’ tall and either a vice type thing or a press or nutcracker for giant nuts! Bottom bit opens to catch something? (their description)

Thanks Dave for your suggestion -

Tony, that would be extremely kind of you, if you could send me a personal message I will email you back with my address -

I will then post my progress on here so everyone can see me trials and tribulations!

Hello Tony -

Have you any pictures of the frames made up prior to being upholstered?

Sizes, like length and width I can get off the internet by looking at new ones, its the structural frame I want to see - how they get the curve shaped back and the wooden structure to support that.

I saw three old re-upholstered chaise's at the weekend by pure coincidence and they wanted 1K each for them -

The base frame looks relatively easy and the choice of having a turned or more modern shaped leg and or having the side support part wood part upholstered?

I also presume Tony that when ones that have wood coming/showing on the sides of the back rest, these are mainly design niceties as oppose to being structural?

Any pictures you have at all would really help????
