Period design and construction / Goddard Townsend drawer blades
« Last post by HSteier on March 24, 2019, 10:04:10 PM »
How were the double beaded drawer blades on Goddard Townsend chests made in the originals? Were the beads formed with a scratch stock and then the background between the beads chiseled or removed with a small router? I think a router would be unstable on a narrow (7/8") drawer blade. I think a scratch stock that did both beads at the same time would be unwieldy.
All thoughts appreciated.

Their are still some spots left for the 45/55 class which is the 28 and 29th of March. Dan Raber of Colonial Homestead (the antique tool store located across the street from the class) is offering a 15% discount to all students of this class. Check out the blog; https://www.colonialhomestead.org/blog for some photos of moldings I cut using both a 45 and 55. Dan is lending us a 45 and 55 for those that don’t have one or the other. Hope to see you there.

Will there be a SAPFM Mid Season Conference this year and if so what are the dates and location?

I fixed it.  I tried pasting in swifty's quote, which caused some formatting problems.  I guess that's what the "preview" button is for!

"Results were a disaster. Too much  red. I reached for a brown glaze."
The opposite of red is green.  To reduce red, add green.  I'd fear the brown glaze would just make everything darker without fixing the red.
Glad to hear things are going so well with your Chippendale chest!

Finishing / Re: Cherry dyes over a wash coat of 1 pound cut shellac

I prepared about 6 samples of lockwood stain( alcohol and water squabble ). I found one that I liked. I applied it to a cherry bench that I recently completed .I used an alcohol soluble antique cherry by Lockwood stains. Results were a disaster. Too much  red. I reached for a brown glaze. Then after overnight drying. I applied 3 coats of Garnet Shellac. It turned out ok. The bench was for the MUD room of our house.
Now back to my Chippendale Chest. I used MInwax Cherry  penetrating stain after a wash coat of 1 pound cut shellac. Later I applied 3 coats of 1 pound Garnet shellac. After a critical eye exam of my progress, I reapplied a this coat of MinWax cherry stain and left it overnight. The results were dramatic, beautiful stain that made the grain really pop. However, the stain label stated it must have a top coat. I applied 5 coats using a French polish technique. A linen cover cheese cloth pad 3 or 4 drops of Alcohol and 3 heavy drops of Garnet shellac.
It looks good now but tomorrow I will continue the building process then progress to a final polish for a mirror finish.
The Take home message is Minwax cherry stain applied after a wash coat and later after more shellac applied again to bring up the color I wanted.The final MinWax stain application needed an overnight drying.
