Thread: Alan's rocking chair
17/01/2010 19:08:37
Simply stunning. Shows fine craftmanship. Its my dream to make a rocker like that, one day I will get there i think . This chair faintly resembles Sam Maloof's rocker. Good job alan, do you have any more photos of the process of making?. Its will be very kind of you to upload those photos for ametures like me to understand those joints. Cheers.

Dear guys
This question may be simple but i need some clarification.
How do i cut a motice say 1/4 inch or 5/8th inch precisely centered in a 3/4inch thick stock with machine or hand.
Please do not laugh, any suggesions will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance

Thanks Marc for the appreciation.
All the joints are Mortice and Tenons in this project. The dowels are to reinforce the joints. I have added one more photo of the dovetail joint (close up shot).

Thread: SIP 01332 Blades

Hi Steve
Trend Pro blades came with its own blade reducing bush. So when you buy a blade , a quality one, it may come along with its own blade reducing bushes. could save you a couple of pounds.
Thread: Andrew's side board

Thanks Marc for the above drawings. Its very easy to understand now.

Yes its a handcut dovetail.
The pegs are not only decorative but adds strength to the joints.

Yes the dovetails are handcut. I recently purchased a Veritas dovetail saw from and put the saw to test. It cuts superb. This is my first veritas tool i own.
Those pegs apart from being decorative it also strengthens the joint.
This is the first time I have done a panel door by the way.
Thanks everyone for your appreciation.

Fantastic finish. Well done!
Thread: Andrew's draws
24/07/2009 20:19:06
Hi guys, thanks for all your comments.
Abour the finish:
Grain filler used: Plaster of paris mixed wit ronseal wallnut spirit dye and dannish oil (purely experimental). Used a old credit card to apply evenly and sanded down to 240 grit. I took extra efforts for the top and the draw fronts.
Oil coat: multiple coats of Liberon finishing oil, sanded inbetween with 600, 1000 and 1200 grit wet and dry sandpaper.
Final coat: wax polish and buffed it to a high gloss finish.
For the draws I used maple to contrast it with the oak.
Thread: Where to buy plastic drawer stops?
05/01/2009 18:03:00

Hello there, I found one website but its USA. I am looking for something like this as seen in this link.
05/01/2009 17:49:00


I want to purchase some sort of plastic drawer stops which will prevent the draw from falling over when tried to open (accidentally with force).

Can anyone suggest where to buy these please? 



Thread: Some advice please
02/01/2009 18:50:00

typing mistake it "bot" not "hot".



02/01/2009 18:01:00

Yes its the sides i am talking about. I have hot boards about 19mm thick ( finished size). So if i take it down further there will be lots of wastage.

My worry is ,19mm wont it make it too thick and make the unit very heavy.

thank you
Thread: Some advice please
01/01/2009 18:55:00

Hello guys

I am planning to build a 9 draw dresser cabinet. I have made the drawings. For the pannels what size planks should I use. I have 3/4" thick boards, if I use them wont it make it very heavy and bulkier. Should I thickness them to say 10 mm. 

I am not going to route the pannes to some style ( roman ogee for example). I want to rabbet them all around and give a small reveal.

Your expert advice will be of great help
