For those following along in the saga, I finally finished my Stickley style
Let me know what you think. It is a little hard to see, but there are
corbels in each post inside corner.
That bed brought good and bad comments from my wife. The good is I
don't have to make the canopy bed I was planning. Yours is beautiful
and that's what she wants. The bad comments are why it took you 14
days to make this and why my projects are measured in months. Thanks
for such great inspiration.
By the way, cab you elaborate on your comment quoted here?
"When routing from a template use both a top and bottom bearing
pattern bit so you don't have to climb up grain when routing. All you
have to do is flip the work over and change bits."
I really do not understand the grain climbing you refer to. Thanks
I actually started working on it on 2/3, so it took me 3-weeks to complete.
i don't think it matters how long it takes you, just as long as you are
happy with the results and you learned stuff along the way! :)
I learned a bunch on this project. One of the biggest things I learned was
that I desperately NEED a dust collector. I cleaned out my woodshop a
couple of times with a snow shovel. Yeah, that's right, a snow shovel. ;)
Let me know if you would like the measurements.
This tip came from the rec. The grain climbing I am referring to is when
using a pattern bit in the router table on a curve. The grain will switch
directions as you travel the curve. If you are not careful, you will end up
with a lot of chip-out when going up-grain. This has to do with the
direction the bit is spinning. I am probably not explaining this too well,
maybe someone else can take a crack at it.
Thanks for looking!
I showed your partially-done pics to my wife. I don't think she could
visualize what was in the offing. Wait until she sees THESE pics!
Excellent job, excellent job.
Just because I'm likely to need to know this number pretty soon ...
about how much (estimate, please) do you think the materials set you back?
I am disillusioned enough to know that no man's opinion on any subject
is worth a **** unless backed up with enough genuine information to make
