Latest project progress, another loveseat rocker for my sister. It's getting there slowly. Need to finish it by July 3rd.
FedEx Tracking lied, said my converter - https://www.ebay.com/itm/290900842912 - would come in Monday. It arrived today. Electrician is scheduled for Wednesday.
Got Northfield's price on a set-of-four 16" jointer blades - $420 plus shipping, plus 3% for credit card transaction. Wowza! Didn't think they would have been that much. I may shop other vendors.... undecided.
Very nice. My first thought was wow, that looks like it will be really,
really comfortable. My second thought was, where would I set my beer?
Ouch!. Might want to look into getting a replacement, spiral segmented
cutter head for that sucker. Several places make them, might not be all
that much more, and they really do a much better job in all ways.
Tolerance is the virtue of the man without convictions.

I had made this one - https://www.flickr.com/photos/43836144@N04/8146451666
/in/photostream - for Mom many years ago. Probably the most comfortable s
eating I've ever made. Since Mom has passed, my sister wants it for her o
She wants this new one for her other son. I think it's seating (comfort)
profile is exactly as the first. I had made templates for the first chair
, so I have good resources for this one. The hardest parts were to custom
mate the arms to the backrest curved style, multiple angles to mate.
The angled arms do present, somewhat, an issue for drink containers, but it
's not really that big of deal. The angle might look drastic, but not real
ly so. Also, one usually doesn't let go of a drink on any chair arm and mo
re so on a moving (rocking) chair. It's also not so easy, sometimes, to ta
ke a sip while rocking.... you have to stop rocking to take a sip without s
pilling your drink, and I suppose especially after too many sips. I had m
entioned making the arms flat, but Lorraine wanted them angled.
This new one is made with pecan, except for the top backrest rail, which is
(live edge) hickory.... I didn't have a decent pecan board for that top ra
il. The first one was made with red oak.
Those should be carbide-tipped at that price. Check on HSS.
<http://www.americannationalknife.com/13To17.asp are in the $110 range
for sets of 4 HSS; but about the same for HCT and you probably don't
want to know what solid carbide would be... :)
You can also try Oella - <www.oellasawandtool.com> or Carbide
Processors, Inc./Southeast Tool <www.carbideprocessors.com> (they carry
full line, not just carbide)
