build log, a shop made rustic version of a " fine furniture coffee table" #9: day 5's conclusion of table top shaping

07-17-2013 08:10 PM by hobby1 | 3 comments »

This afternoon I was able to get a couple hours in, to start the shaping of the table top. I started out by grinding the whole interior, to see how the grinding effect would work. then I went with my sanding drum to do the primary shaping, and touched off with my grinder on the face side of the top edges. then I applied the light color stain as a base coat, to the entire top including the edges. then I went with the dark stain, first to the ...

Morgan's Jewelry Box #1: Porter Cable Dovetail Jig Joinery

05-21-2007 06:21 AM by USCJeff | 3 comments »

Continuing the Lesson’s Learned Theme: I used mitered joints for my Mom’s jewelry box that I completed last weekend.
