Nakashima / Krenov Nightstand #9: Finished

11-16-2014 11:57 PM by Matthew | 3 comments »

Got the last coat of finish on the nightstand, and now it’s done! About the finishing process. I sanded everything to 220 and then applied General Finishes Seal-a-Cell. Then I applied three coats of General Finishes Arm-R-Seal (semi gloss). I sanded with 400 grit paper between coats.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1490: A Warm Heart on a Cold Day

02-03-2015 01:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Like many of you who live on the Eastern coast and Midwest, we were hit pretty hard yesterday with a pile of snow. As I write this today, we are still getting more, although it isn't coming down quite as quickly. But it is part of winter and part of life here in Canada, and I take it as it comes. Our latest dose of winter began just after noon yesterday. By 3pm, we already had quite a bit of new snow, with no signs of things letting up. My cat Pancakes was crying at the door, as the ...

Craftsman Table Saw #1: Purchased the saw

02-19-2015 03:38 PM by cootcraig | 3 comments »

Inspired by this video series on refurbishing a Craftsman Table saw, I found and purchased one. Nelson Studios saw refurb Here it is as I was disassembling it on my pickup. The saw disassembled, so I could move it and start cleaning it up. Next up I will clean, paint and polish the wings. I plan to mask the top surface while I paint the bottom with Rustoleum hammered gray spray paint. Then I will clean the top surface and apply Boeshield T-9 and finish with paste wax.

A Turn for the Worse...

03-03-2007 08:18 AM by Ethan Sincox | 3 comments »

Sorry I haven’t been blogging the past few days; this week at work was a rough one. I’ve not been this glad to see Friday afternoon in a long time. I’m afraid this blog is going to be a long one, as I probably need to get a bit out of my system… When I had any spare time, I’ve been doing some freelance documentation work – love it! – and trying to generate a pricing list for Pop’s tools – not so much fun. I guess it is more important...

Vroom Vrrrooooom! (race car bed) #3: Crossing the Finish Line

05-08-2007 02:41 PM by Allen | 3 comments »

The bed is at last complete and assembled in the bedroom. My son was out of town with his mother this weekend so my in-laws come over to help me move it up to his room. Here are a few photos: And here’s a video of his reaction upon seeing it for the first time: Phew! Glad to have that done. Next big project is converting the back half of my garage into an actual shop with a locking door to keep little fingers away from saw bla...

MIDI Workstation #2: Making the MIDI Workstation Part 1

11-12-2007 11:37 PM by Tim Dorcas | 3 comments »

When I am working with a new product, I often will use it in a final project. It is much more motivating to me to be working on a project that I am interested in than just practicing using a tool. Admittedly I will make mistakes along the way but I can usually fix them as I go along. In the case of the MIDI workstation I have made a shocking number of errors but so far I have managed to cover them up fairly well. Most of my errors are because of the alignment pin in the Veritas 32 System. ...

Quick update

01-25-2008 04:46 PM by DannyBoy | 3 comments »

Kind of a busy day for me today at work but I am sneaking in this one post just to give everyone an update at what I’m currently up to. I just finished last week my Christmas projects. It sounds really late, but we had my half of the family’s Christmas this last weekend so I was just on time. Now that I am past that, I can focus on the laundry list I have created for myself this year already. First in the line: January contest entry. I’m doing a combo entry here. ...

The Purpleheart Guitar collection.

07-17-2008 10:09 PM by Chardt | 3 comments »

This series will hope to outline the work I’ve done building several guitars out of a large stock of Purple heart I got a couple of years ago. It was about the size of a door, and I carefully planned to make 6 guitar bodies out of it. In addition to the Bass, which I posted in the projects section, here is where I currently stand with the various guitars. 1. Telecaster body: I really wanted a vintage 59’ Tele. Blonde with a black pickguard and a filthy maple neck. But I didn...

Modine Hot Dawg Programmable Thermostat?

01-24-2010 10:09 PM by John Gray | 3 comments »

I have a Hot Dawg Heater, HDS 45, installed in my shop and I seem to forget to turn the thermostat down when I leave. Question is, can I install a regular residential set back\programmable thermostat such as found at any BORG? It appears to be a 24V system with 2 wires coming to the thermostat. Thanks, John

Woodworking forums vary a great deal...

02-16-2010 05:28 AM by Wood_smith | 3 comments »

...I’ve only been on this forum for about a week now, and I can’t begin to say thank you for all the welcoming messages, and the kind comments about my pouches. Another forum (that shall remain nameless) that I stumbled across and joined about a week earlier was pretty good, but had some negative comments at first. The forum suggested new members introduce themselves and talk a little bit about what they do. I did that, and some people said it was blatant advertising. I re-checked...
