American GrafitiAnother car to add to my garage. This one is the American Grafiti special driven by John Milner. It differs from his car by having a sun shade over the windshield and a nitro tank on the front. Also it has a jump seat. I included a cutaway photo to show the construction. This is a scratch build so there are no plans.

Stickley 2340 Bow Arm Morris Chair in Hard Maple

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Stickley 2340 Bow Arm Morris Chair in Hard MapleHello All:
Here is my latest project, a replica of 1901 Stickley 2340 Bow Arm Morris Chair. Its made entirely of hard maple that was salvaged from the building I work in during a remodel.
Arms and back slats are steam bent (wood was soaked in Downy fabric softener for 2 weeks before steaming). Finish is medium luster polymerized tung oil from Sutherland Wells. Cushions are from a Bassett chair I bought off of craigslist just to get the cushions.
All construction is dowel-pinned loose tenon, including the through tenons on the arms.
I've never seen any Stickley done in maple and I'm pretty happy with it.
Cheers,
Jim
