I don't know... But this stain don't look right.... - 21 replies
Getting ready to stain a project. Brand new cannot Rustoleum Early American stain. When I opened it I thought it looked a little light. Then I went to stir and found crud all settled to the bottom. Of course it was the last can in this color. Does this need to just be mixed well??? Or is it old and needs to be taken back?

So… I’ve been looking back at some of my old projects. Once I started getting better (not great… just better) at the cutting and assembly of my projects, I’d be pretty happy with my project… till I’d get to the finishing. Then everything would fall apart. And the wonderful project I had just been working on is...

Happy 2014!!! Got any SHOP related resolutions? - 35 replies
Well… Happy New Years to my FAVORITE group of woodworkers. I don’t know about you… but 2013 was a roller coaster. It definitely had it’s ups and downs but my favorite thing about it is that I was able to get an INDOOR shop of my own. Going from a pallet bench and plastic tables outside to a small one car garage of my very...

Ok… So I really hate to paint wood. And I hate it even more now that several of my Christmas orders were asked to be painted. But… You do what they want. So I have this small table I made.

So… After being sick most of last week and all four kids being on fall break this week… I haven’t had much time to get on LJ’s. And when I got up this morning I didn’t even know what I had planned for today either. But it was decided for me pretty quickly. There was a knock at the door literally within five minutes ...

Plywood is not my friend. - 34 replies
Well… Usually I get all my lumber free. Needed to buy some plywood though. That’s one thing I never find free. So I went to Lowes and bought me a sheet of 1/4 pine ply. Wasnt sure of the exact dimensions (plus I don’t trust their measuring). So instead I just had them cut it in half for easier transport. Ugh! Yep̷...

My mom and I had discussed what she wanted for the inside panels. BUT… I decided to bring her over and show it to her before I went any further… JUST TO BE SURE. LOL Here...

This warehouse is where they stor...

Shop safety at a young age :) - 13 replies
You may have seen my post from yesterday about the new compound miter saw I got for my birthday from my mom yesterday. My shop is all clean and I was out there today filling some holes with wood filler and I had a special little guy come out and help me.

I guess some cleaning is in order.... - 51 replies
I walked into my shop and just froze at the door. Somehow in my mind… I had left it a bit cleaner than this. Looks like I’m going to need to do some cleaning up. I’m a messy woodworker and throw things everywhere… But what the heck was I thinking? I usually don’t leave it this much of a mess. Maybe it just says that...

Why do people continue to throw away good wood??? - 29 replies
Can you believe this was in the “burn pile”??? Why would they throw this away? Of course… I saved them a match and kindly hauled it away to my garage where I have nice plans for it. :) Kids go back to school tomorrow. Life has been crazy busy the last two weeks and I’m hoping it will calm down after tomorrow and I ...

While I am frustrated at the comment that was made to me and I realize that connotation is lost in writing sometime… Know that I take it all in stride and laugh. So… I had a comment made to me. I guess it was more of a question. “So… you think you want to be a woodworker?”. At first I hesitated because I felt lik...
