had a bondo kit sitting around so i made a dust collection chute a la David Drummond (thanks for the idea!) it was a small bondo kit so i might have to go over it with a second coat. it’s fairly rigid already tho. this was my first time ever using a fiberglass kit for anything.

Veneered Sofa Table #2: Pressing the Veneered Panels

10-26-2011 05:15 PM by SPHinTampa | 3 comments »

Next step is to create two veneered panels for the top. I believe that a single large, unbroken top would look a little better but I really like the material that I have on hand and I don’t trust my ability to get an invisible seam at the center. So I will feature a break rather than make a poor job of hiding it. I do not have a large vacuum press system, so I will use cauls and clamps instead. I will use two 2’x4’ MDF sections to make a veneer sandwich. I...

Walnut Entertainment Center #4: Update with Nine New Photos

05-30-2012 05:11 AM by Lifesaver2000 | 3 comments »

Believe it or not, I finally have some pics to show of my progress. If all goes according to plan, the only thing left to do when this week is over will be the finishing work. So, here we go…. This first image was taken a few weeks back, when I had completed gluing up all the panels. There are the top, the main shelf, four adjustable shelves, both ends and the middle dividers in this photo. Starting with just rough sawn lumber, it seemed like it took forever to get to this po...

Drying Burl Wood #2: Consideration #2 By OregonBurls

08-28-2012 04:00 PM by OregonBurls | 3 comments »

Consideration #2 If you have fruit tree burls or burls like madrone there are two ways you can semi-stabilize the burl.1. Pressure cook the block:a. I have a friend in New York who gets 12×12 x 6 blocks of Madrone and when he gets them the first thing he does is throws them in the pressure cooker for one hour.b. Let the water cool down until you can comfortably take the blocks out with your hands. Then re-wax them until ready to turn the bloc...

Workbench Build #19: Clean up and Reset.. Laminating the top Part 1

03-05-2013 05:23 PM by Airframer | 3 comments »

Not much “Progress” over the last couple days unless you consider a good cleaning of the shop progress (which I kinda do). The place had become a safety hazard and I just wasn’t able to focus on anything with all the clutter and dust about so it had to be delt with before moving forward with anything else. I started out like this.. And after a full day of cleaning and re organizing some tools I got it to a working condition.. As a side note.. the wi...

Garage Remodel #7: completion and after thought comments

To those who are considering adding a single outlet, multiple outlets, 110v, 220v, lighting, and placement… I’ll share my thought process and experience with my remodel. 1.) I’ve never ran an electrical circuit in my life. I couldn’t tell you the difference between 14/2 and 6/3 wire a couple months ago. Everything I learned was from countless hours of YouTube, GarageJournal forum, LumberJock forum, and internet pictures / videos. For LumberJock and GarageForum, ...

In Russia #1: Happy Couple

09-22-2013 12:09 AM by Jim Earl | 3 comments »

I should start showing the beginning picture of my burnings so you can see what I work off of. OK I made a mistake, I did not take a picture before I started this burning so I hope you will be able to see the before and after. Here is a couple that has asked me to burn this as a special momenta. Trying to get the right picture done as a pattern isn’t that easy and sometimes it turns out the first few times. this one took about six time of reprinting. I do go through a lot of in...
