As always you are generous with your compliments. This was one of those "I'll do it once but please don't ask for two of them" projects. The moving of heavy long pieces of wood 'bout wore me out.

I said sure.
Jeff, in his initial phone call to me used the words "big timbers" and I'm getting all excited that the "timbers" were like 4x10's or 8x8's or 6x12's and I'm already designing in my head using big joints and making something real unique.
When I got down to the building to pick up the lumber, it turns out to be, for the most part, normal dimensional stuff. It was big though. 2x14's that were 18-19' long. I scrounged around and found three 3x8's.

In the end I ended up making a picnic table. 16' long. 98% wood joints, I used four pieces of steel to keep the top together.

Would love to see those pictures. Check the first section of the forum and there are instructions on how to post pictures there.

I may try my hand and one of the nutcrackers next week, seems like a fun challenge.

Let me say like many small projects that look simple. you actually get challenged and learn a lot. First the end grain turning, pay attention to grain direction when gluing extra pieces, otherwise you get a significant emotional experience. Then you learn about end grain, I found a sharp scraper the best way to avoid tearout.

When removing the extra pieces of donor wood, make sure that you are hitting against the unthreaded end (again a lesson learned, super glue is great though). I also found it best to put a couple marks on the top and hold it vertically when disc sanding. Any out of square makes it look like crap, and as John pointed out if you go too deep it looks awful.

I emailed a pic to John, hopefully he can post it. I did technically get it done on time since I finished it on Christmas so my Dad says that is good (I am still waiting for last years from him). I made it out of some wood my Dad had given me that came from my Great Uncle, who was the first woodworker I knew. Unfortunately I never got to learn from him much because he suffered a debilitating stroke when I was young.

The additional ones I have in progress will have to turn into next years present. Work and a bad starter on my old Delta lathe kind of delayed finishing this year.

I'm not well versed in sash windows, but I think you could make the rebate with either the rabbet sole or dado soles of the HP-6 and possibly use the ogee profile for the decorative trim http://www.bridgecitytools.com/default/ ... ile-2.html
Although the scale might be too large, check the section and it gives dimensions. It is a very beautiful profile.

Best,
Rutaget

I'm looking to make 18th century window sash with hand planes. Could any of the Bridge City planes be used?

My girlfriend and I were sitting in a bar in Jerez de la Frontera, Spain drinking the local sherry…this was early last March. We struck up a conversation with a Japanese businessman that was doing the sherry thing too.
He asked us where we were going from here….we said maybe Morocco, maybe not…don’t really know.
He said go to Córdoba…see La Mezquita. We looked at each other, shrugged and off we went eventually landing there.

I hadn’t one drop of knowledge of La Mezquita and was totally open to whatever it was. It turned into a sublime experience. We walked in and for the most part we were the only people in there….it staggered me, I couldn’t believe what I was seeing, I started to cry, it was that overpowering.


See the beginning remarks about it here. I ended up reworking almost all the miters on the uber versatile and reliable WoodRat.
viewtopic.php?f=22&t=326

This is a photo of one of the windows of La Mezquita. It's large and one of I don't know how many….I printed it out and hung it on the studio wall. I wanted to build it. I completed phase one of maybe a three or four phase project. This is phase one.

Too many other photos of it here in the link below and I'll be shooting more in the next day or so.
