Massachusetts_low_chest_front_left_oblique_view.jpgLeft oblique view107 viewsThis is a western Massachusetts low chest, more plain and primitive than a Boston-made version. I used Moser's Honey Amber Maple waterborne aniline dye to get the color of aged maple. I applied a single coat of gloss wiping varnish after applying the dye. Next, I applied five coats of one-pound cut amber shellac. I then carefully applied and scrubbed away with mineral spirits a dark glaze in the fillets, corners, etc. to accentuate the moulding details. Last a sixth coat of one-pound cut amber shellac.Sgt42RHR

Virginia_corner_cabinet1.jpgEastern shore of Virginia corner cabinet160 viewsI began this two years ago in a class with Lonnie Bird at the Lonnie Bird School of Fine Woodworking, and just got back to finishing it up. While most Eastern shore of Virginia corner cabinets were painted pine, a few were made in walnut. These were typically build by finish carpenters rather than joiners. These carpenters used elements they were familiar with in building homes in the Eastern shore.

After some careful scraping this was revealed H & R ROKER [CAST STEEL?] Does anyone know about this manufacturer?

**FLASH**
I have just learned that it is H & R BOKER.

2013-08-31_Gasforgetest1.jpgGas forge test18 viewsGreg Hahn was kind enough to bring a stack of Freon tanks to the last BagAthon (along with all the wooden wine boxes) and almost a year later, I got a small gas forge set up and running.

Couple of tweaks to the set up. Need to add a choke and a quick connect to the burner and coat the inside with a refractive coating.
