    Back stool reproductions

    A couple years ago we made a video of the back stools being made at Tryon Palace. I had hoped to use it on the forum but we were never able to get the final copy in a secure location. So now it is featured on the Tryon Palace website in a section specifically for the Conservation Lab.

    https://tryonpalace.org/conservation-lab

    The video is at the bottom of the page. Those of you who attended my chair joinery talk back in July saw the first minute or so of the video. This is the whole thing. It shows my volunteers milling, laying out and building a back stool. I'm featured in a couple shots but its really about them.

    The video helps bring attention to the lab and I may be able to use the video for bringing attention to the need to upholster the chairs which will eventually be placed in the Palace building for visitors to sit on during tours.

    Safely crosscutting?

    I zipped through the video. Nicely done. One caution though.

    I was somewhat surprised to see what appeared to be the use of the TS rip fence and miter gauge simultaneously for a crosscut - at the 53-57 second mark or thereabouts. I may not have seen it correctly, but I did view it a few times and that is what it looks like.
    - This would seem to be a safety violation and so I'd recommend that those few seconds get edited out of the video.
    - I'd also recommend the practitioners of this change their ways.

    You'll probably get more comments about that little snafu than the rest of an otherwise very good video.
    Always be yourself because the people that matter don't mind, and the ones who mind, don't matter.

    Re: Safely crosscutting?

    That is the danger with posting something like that on a site like this. I thought long and hard about it before posting it.

    Agreed! Jim Valvano would have exclaimed "don't ever, ever, ever do that", but there are worse things in life so don't fret.

    Re: Safely crosscutting?

    Yes I was or am not trying be overly critical or to distract from the overall video, but I did think it warranted some attention. I did not go looking for infractions, but I do sometimes notice things like this. It caught my attention in a first casual viewing. I replayed a few times to confirm.
    I would hate to have a novice see this and say to themselves "Oh that's how to make that cut!" Those few seconds could presumably be removed from the video without a significant effect on the overall video, which otherwise is well done.

    Re: Safely crosscutting?

    Richo,

    Thanks for posting that! I've had some thoughts towards building a sofa that uses the exact same type of back but was concerned about how the back fastened into the legs. Glad to see a better way of doing it, and I definitely learned something! So I really appreciate your posting.

    FWIW, I cringe anytime I see a safety issue in any video. So even the lack of a blade guard stands out for me.

    In any case, please continue to post those videos here.

    Nice video Richo, cool to see some volunteers that engaged in an institution.

    Re: Safely crosscutting?

    There are actually several safety violations in the video, starting with no ear protection or eye protection. That's what stood out to me the most. I notified my project manager of the safety violation seen by this forum and he indeed agreed that what the guy was doing a the table saw was incorrect. Steps will be taken to correct that in the future. I probably can't get it edited out at the moment because the guy who made the video has since left TP and the current staff are busy doing other projects. I really pushed to get the video out and available and may not be able to get it changed right now.

    One of my volunteers suggested adding to the upholstery part to the video but since that hasn't begun yet that would be a separate video of its own. Our development branch are currently looking for a grant to pay for the upholstery materials. Due to the way back stools are upholstered I'll have to use one hide per chair, so that is 10 hides. Plus all the other materials and tools. I was trained in upholstery conservation up at Colonial Williamsburg but we don't have the right tools for that here in New Bern so I'll have to get pretty much all the stuff needed.

    Thanks to all for watching the video.
