My latest Wood Working Project

This summer, we replaced the carpet in our house with hardwood flooring. When we finished, the stairway looked very tacky so I built a new balustrade. The picture, upper left is what I replaced.

That is nice. Do you have enough scraps left over to do some good project on your Scamp?

Thanks folks, I have been working with wood using only 19th century hand tools since I retired. I have no need to redo the Scamp, two years ago, I replaced all of the Wood look materials with Cherry. My next project is a Scandinavian dowel tree made from Walnut for my daughter.

If you ever put a second story addition on the Scamp, you'll have the staircase skills!


I dabble in woodworking as well but more as a follower of the "plaid" one (Norm) rather than Roy.

Beautiful work, Dennis. Looks way better than before.

Even more impressive that you only use hand tools.

I have posted them here, and because, I used an iPad with very limited memory, had to remove them. (I have lost more pictures that way). They were backed up to an old Windows computer and a DVD. I will have to search.

And We have talked of adding storage and stairway as in the Scamp Fiver front bath. That is however, a summer project.

Nice work. I also dabble in working wood, turnings, have been for the last 50 years or so. One thing about the craft is you are not a know it all, b/c you are always learning. Carl

No doubt about the learning! I taught high school shop from 1968 til 1972 when I retired from teaching. When I retired from industry in 2008, l decided that I wanted to learn wood working as it was done in the 19th century. This allowed me to build and work in a small (14'x14') shop, something not possible with a collection of power tools.

Found a couple of pictures of my cupboard doors. Unfortunately, the were taken with my iPad camera, and not my Pentax with wide angle lens.

Great job on the stairs. Did mine in a very similar manner a year ago so I can really appreciate the work that you put into it.
