Washingtons_folding_field_bedstead_by_Dick_Toone.jpgFolding field bedstead by Richard Toone276 viewsThis is an image of the bed I'm making, save the turned legs and posts. I am making almost the same bed, however as I don't own (or know how to use) a lathe, the legs on my interpretation of this bed are tapered square legs and the posts are tapered octagons. Other than that my bed and this bed are the same. This bed was made by Richard Toone who reproduces a lot of historical furniture and accessories. Sgt42RHR
Washington_Bed_Conservator_photo_of_partially_folded_bed[1].jpgHow the bed folds and unfolds307 viewsThe conservator sent me this photo which provides an excellent view of the relationship of the parts to the whole. Captured here in the midst of a fold/unfold you can see the necessary scissoring action of the side rails, the rounded stub tenons at the corners and in the middle of the side rails, and the folded legs and posts. My next challenge will be to cut the mortises in the center ends of the side rails. I can also see in this detail that the center side rail hinges are mortised into the side rails Sgt42RHR
blade_spring_arm_closeup.jpgSpring arm assembly closeup6 viewsSide 2 view shows a spring arm assembly anchored at one end with a wood screw. It is attached at is other end to one end of a metal bar through which passes a pivot screw and one end and a thumb peg at the other. The metal bar forms the bottom of the mouth with a double bevel blade forming the top of the mouth. By moving the thumb peg, the mouth bar pivots away from the cutting edge of the blade. The edge of the mouth bar that is closet to the blade's edge is chamfered the same length as the blade.Sgt42RHR
Round_trunk_and_flat_top_trunk.JPG239 viewsI just finished the round trunk. I made it to coordinate with the flat-top trunk I made last year. Sgt42RHR
Prepare_to_load_the_fiddle.JPGPrepare to load a fiddle244 viewsThe fiddle is in the vise and the poppets have been adjusted to hold the handle blank at its tightest and the wedges tightened. There is just enough give to slip the blank in.Sgt42RHR
Using_a_frame_saw_to_multiply_by_dividing.JPGUsing a frame saw to multiply by dividing170 viewsThe frame saw I built with walnut scraps from the folding bed project worked great! I gaged a pretty deep line around each board and sawed to the line. I was able to get 5/16" thick stuff after I planed the saw marks away.Sgt42RHR
Octagonal_chisel_handles_early_19th_century.jpgEarly 19th Century Octagonal Chisel Handles120 viewsIllustration is from an early 19th century Richard Timmins Catalogue, published in Rees, J. & M. (1997) Chtistopher Gabriel and the Tool Trade in 18th Century London. Mendham, NJ: Astragal Press.Sgt42RHR
Old_Leather_Tool--It_works!.JPGUsing a leather scallop stamp186 viewsThe 18th century trunk that I am making has a scalloped 3 - 4 oz. leather dust skirt around the trunk lid. I got this 7/8" scallop stamp from Tony Seo just for this purpose. It worked like a charm!Sgt42RHR

1925MillersFallsmodel15.jpg1925 MF Langdon catalog page24 viewsNote the distinction between the model 15 1/2 and the model 16 1/2. I think I've got a model 16 1/2 since it does not have the slotted elevators.Sgt42RHRSep 11, 2015

I have learned that is is H & R BOKER

2.jpgH & R ROKER name stamp74 viewsI've used these dividers for several years and last night just happened to notice what appeared to be a letter stamp on one of the legs of the divider. After some careful scraping this was revealed H & R ROKER [CAST STEEL?] Does anyone know about this manufacturer?

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

4.jpgDividers stamped H & R ROKER(?) CAST STEEL68 viewsThese dividers were in a box of old tools from my Mother's family's farm in Virginia. Among the other tools were late 18th and early 19th century moulding planes marked H.O.A. Henry Osborne Ambrose was one of my Great great grandfathers and was a carpenter (?) in and around Petersburg, VA.Sgt42RHRSep 08, 2015
Big_and_little_mitre_boxes.jpgLittle brother and big brother83 viewsA 12 inch Millers Falls mitrebox and a big Stanley mitrebox. Both with Disston saws each with 1896-1917 PHILADA medallions. Both saws came with their respective mitreboxes. Neither have been sharpened but both cut quickly and smoothly. I use both of these a lot. The little Millers Falls is just perfect for moulding and small bits.Sgt42RHRSep 07, 2015
big_and_little_Disston_mitre_box_saws.jpgDisston Mitrebox saws74 viewsBoth Disstons, both with 1896-1917 PHILADA medallions. One saw has a 16 inch blade and the other a 28 inch blade. Both cut smoothly and have not been sharpened by me. Both saws were present with their respective mitreboxes.Sgt42RHRSep 07, 2015
MF_mitre_box.jpgMillers-Falls #16 1/2 mitre box93 viewsThis mitre box is completely unmarked as to maker or model but appears to be identical to the Millers Falls #16 1/2 12 inch mitre box. I added the cherry base for clamping to my workbench.Sgt42RHRSep 07, 2015
MF_mitre_box_and_saw~0.jpgMillers-Falls #16 1/2 mitre box and Disston saw98 viewsThe mitrebox is completely unmarked but appears to be identical to the Millers Falls #16 1/2 12" model. The saw with with the box when I got it and is a Disston with a 16 inch blade and a 1896-1917 PHILADA medallion. I've not sharpened the saw but it cuts smoothly so that little clean up is required.Sgt42RHRSep 07, 2015
