Today I ogee’d the drawer fronts and doors, applied aniline dye to some pieces and finished the kick up on the vanity, it’s going to have motion sensor lights in the bottom. The aniline dye looks funny now but It always looks great once the finish goes on.
Nearly finished Home Theater room, sort of.Oak, with bookmatched panels from 8/4 boards. baseboard and top rail are removeable throughout so wiring adjustments can be made.8 years getting the electronics with 2+ years of woodworking with limited time. Probably 1,000 hours.
Remember that corner the router ate? Well that just wasn’t going to be allowed to stand. I had to use a chisel to cut back to a straight shoulder and find some ash of the right color and grain to cut another corner from. It’s pretty good. The first pictures show the patch slightly fat so I had material to flush sand: And now sanded and with finish on it: Here is that repaired splined miter post: Just oil sanding the sides now. Eight more days of WOOHOO!
I’ve been working on several projects simultaneously. Finally hitting completion on a few and thought I’d post them. First off is finally getting the lumber pile sorted, so that I can tell if I have a piece that will work or not. I started with this. And after several days of sorting and donating to my brother-in-law’s firewood pile, I ended up with this. I can now go straight to the shelf, check stock, find the right piece and grab it! Next up was my side wo...
I had just finished a pastryboard to my wife. and had nothing to do. I looked around the shop to see if there was something i could build. A few months ago i bought some pieces of oak to my kitchen project but i saved one of the pieces for special occations/projects. The grain was tighter and the weight was heavier than the other pieces. I saved it wanted to make something nice and useful of it. I decided to make a hand plane, Krenov style. I realize that oak is not the optimal wood for...
Sorry this is so longNow that all the electric is done, insulation, walls up and painted I can move onto the essentials. This will be two cabinets with six draws opposite each other and where you see the router lift will be a box set back about 16” I will put a box with a dust port on the back that will hook into the table saws dust port with a blast gate for when I use the saw as well as one for the router. In front of the router just under the top will be a 11” wide by 12...
In addition to woodworking, I also do photography. They have been pretty popular, so I’ve decided to try to sell them – only $25. You can buy them at my shop on Etsy
I use a Rigid vacuum for my “dust collection” When the filters not clogged it works great for my saw and router table. However the when gets a little ircksom. Theres plenty of plans out there for different “Cyclones”, plus the tops you can buy just about everywhere, however this looks like the best option out there right now. http://www.cgallery.com/jpthien/cy.htm I just picked up the trash can and 2 2.5” fittings to get started today. My favorite par...
Not much to report this week. Stunning weather. A fast-paced 4 1/2 hour hike through a slice of WV paradise. A few new trees to photograph and study. A couple of nice branches collected from fallen Beech trees. I did pause long enough to record this early morning view: THEY’RE EVERYWHERE!: There have been several reported sightings of a bear near my mom’s house, which is very near where I usually hike. I was hoping to catch a glimpse of it in the woods, but I didn...
