Miter Saw Stand from Reclaimed Wood

01-21-2017 06:21 PM by ShaunMeighan | 1 comment »

Hello all! So for this weekend’s project, I decided to make a handy stand for my miter saw. It’s very simple construction but it’s solid and does the job. I also added a trash bag on the inside to give the stand a second function. A third function is that the rails on the side can be used for clamp storage!In the future I will probably add castors to the base so that it can be easily moved around my small shop.Thanks!View on YouTube YouTube

Hope Chest for Daughter #2 #20: Re-routed and sanded the raised panels

01-21-2017 03:50 PM by Mainiac Matt | 1 comment »

Here you can see the difference in the profile when I used the correct guide bearing… Lots of sanding… I had a small blowout from scraping the glue off of one of the panels and there was some pretty deep grain , so I decided to try out filling the grain using Timber Mate on this one. Here they are all done with one coat of spray shellac. Now I just need to figure out how to match the color of the wood filler.

Claro Walnut Box #4: Lessons from Finishing

01-21-2017 09:13 AM by HorizontalMike | 6 comments »

Well I finally decided to complete my “finishing” of this box, flock it, and to add hardware. I chose to final finish polishing with Johnson’s Paste Wax (JPW) which comes out with a satiny semi-gloss sheen. Here are my last steps on this project. I really learned a lot from finishing this box. Too glossy brings out every single flaw and amplifies it/them, making things look worse rather than better. Too much effort IMO. Semi-gloss seems to “ask” to be touche...

Hepplewhite Stand #7: Tapering the Legs

01-20-2017 06:33 PM by Ron Aylor | 1 comment »

 With the tenons cut and fitted to their respective mortises, it’s time to taper the legs.  I want the legs to taper down from 1-1/2” to 1-1/8” starting about 5” from the top. I marked an 1-1/8” square at the bottom of each leg.   By the time I marked all the legs it started to turn dark … a storm was blowing in …  ... and the shop quickly became as black as the inside of a cat! ... better call it a night!  After a good night’s rain, I finished defining the 1-1/8” s...
