Look what followed us home from the outdoor market today. I love, love, love supporting my local woodworkers and I really get jazzed when I can support a young woodworker who is just starting out and doing something cool/creative.
Keith Forsyth over at Barrel Revival made this chair from old oak barrels staves used in the wineries in central Washington.
Chair made of oak wine barrel staves. The purple staining is on the inside of the barrel staves .. I’m guessing a Merlot.
Beautiful oak arms doweled into place.
Bung hole and stave stains incorporated into the design. The purple is from the wine.
Keith uses the existing barrel stave curves to make a super comfy chair.
More stave stains with the Barrel Revival logo.
Wine glass holder .. of course!

I’ve gotten as far as the front face frame. I still need to do a frame on the other three sides and then on to drawers and doors. Click on picture to enlarge.
I used Tico’s process to attach edge banding on some of the plywood. After that I was able glue up the case.
I used dominoes to put the case together.
Dominoes go in easily and line things up nicely.
After gluing on the edge banding I used my bull nose plane to clean glue.
Then trimmed the edge banding flush.
Case glued up.
Here’s a quick video on how to use the Domino.
I just figured this out, so if you’ve had experience with using the Cutlist plugin for SketchUp, feel free to chime in.
I found this post on LumberJocks (http://lumberjocks.com/daltxguy/blog/5143):
If you’re a fan of Sketchup for creating woodworking models, then the next obvious step is to use
Sketchup to help you create cutlists and layouts. Sketchup plugin Cutlist 4.1 does just that. CutList 4.1 sketchup plugin helps you determine how much of each material you need to produce your design, taking into account nominal sized lumber with allowances for finishing to final size.... click to read more.
I want to build the Jefferson Bookshelf from Popular Wood Working June 2011 and I needed to figure out how much wood I needed. I downloaded the Sketch Up model and then used the cut list plugin to calculate how much wood I need and it was pretty slick.
