IMG_2799.JPGGalootaclaus 2016 23 views11 items, two for chunks of Bodark and Mesquite from Texas, two for chisels needing a boatload of care, a bit holder also needing some help, a box of #7 slotted flat heads from Sweden of all places, dual sheave blocks, a mystery #593 Stanley hammer without faces, a NIB set of 6 Greenlee Irwin style bits, some acid brushes, and a tubular thing that apparently grows that way - never saw anything like this before, but I'm guessing that grew in Texas too. Quite an assortment.Charlie Driggs

Massachusetts_low_chest_front_left_oblique_view.jpg
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

Massachusetts_low_chest_back_view.jpgBacking boards77 viewsAll secondary wood in this piece is poplar. The backing boards have one coat of one-pound cut amber shellac on them. I was surprised that a couple of the boards were almost brown, unusual for poplar.Sgt42RHR
Massachusetts_low_chest_drawer_pull_hardware.jpg
Massachusetts_low_chest_drawer_pull_hardware.jpgDrawer pulls73 viewsAll hardware was bright brass from Ball & Ball. I painted it all with gun bluing which turned it black, then I steel wooled and polished with Simichrome polish which left patina in the deep recesses and hard to reach spots. In this view, one can also see the effect of the dark glaze applied in the fillet of the thumbnail moulding around the drawers.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. Glazed doors, arched top doors, raised panel doors, strong bases, fluted pilasters, set-back capitals, etSgt42RHR
