New Mobile Work Station #2: Frame Assembly

11-21-2013 05:52 AM by MT_Stringer | 4 comments »

I have the basic frame assembled. It is smaller than I expected but it should serve as a jig storage/ assembly/work cart just fine. And it will fit into my work area s I had hoped it would. Here is my progress for today. One of the sides glued, screwed and tattood! :-) The joints are half lap. I forgot to mention the legs and sides are 2×4 from the big box store. The end pieces are hard maple I had on hand. The frame is complete. I will let the glue cure over night. It turned ou...

Fun project

03-16-2012 06:56 PM by RussellAP | 4 comments »

Women go nuts over these things. You can put them indoor or outdoor in a sheltered spot, they’d look good in a garden spot where some plants can grow up around them too. I think I’ll just get some spray varnish to seal them. I’m advertising them on FB with my friends and so is my wife. We’ll see how it does.

Under the Scope #2: Walnut! Liquid Poly, Waxed Poly and Raw

01-10-2008 11:07 PM by YooperCasey | 4 comments »

I recently have been refinishing a small chair for my wife. The chair legs are solid walnut with the side panels a veneered walnut. (Which I learned after the fact… unfortunately) Before I just tossed some finish onto it I bought a piece of walnut veneer which we marked out into a grid and tested various colors of stain. After choosing a stain (no stain or dyes at all) I decided to try out the new foolproof finishing method they listed in FWW. It starts with shellac, then three coats...
