Dan's Blackbutt Roubo Bench #1: The Beginning

02-25-2010 11:57 PM by DoctorDan | 3 comments »

Have you ever started a project, given yourself a budget and a time frame… and then well… you go over budget… and you need that new tool… oh and you got busy, or had to redo something… and well… If you haven’t; welcome to woodworking. I’m sure you’ll enjoy your first project and many more to come. At the start of 2009 I decided I wanted to build a new workbench. I was taking on a new job so I decided 12 months would be a good time fr...

Butcher Block Kitchen Table #4: Mostly Done Except for the Top

05-06-2010 02:50 PM by Jimi_C | 3 comments »

Here’s the dry-fit, the tape’s on there to keep it from falling apart when I adjust things/check for square. All the stretchers have been resized to match the shelf size: Here’s a detail of how the leg holds the shelf: I still need to clean that up a little since there’s a bit of a gap on all 4 legs, which means I may need to trim a little off the stretchers again (maybe just 1/16” or so from each end). As for the top, I know this is supposed to...

Evolution #5: Seeking outside influences

11-17-2010 06:40 PM by StevenAntonucci | 3 comments »

It’s been a while since I’ve written, but I am back. If you want to be a great woodworker, you need to learn to find outside influences. It is certain that we all start by developing tool skills and following plans, but somewhere along the way, we want to develop our own style. How can you do this? The best answer to this question is to stop looking at other woodworkers and seek outside influences! It may sound counter-intuitive, but all great artisans have to develop the...

The Slippery Slope #3: Pop's Toolbox

12-14-2010 02:30 AM by chrisstef | 3 comments »

I know that its been a while but ive been busy working aorund the house and working on a coffee table for my father for Christmas but here is the latest installment of “The Slippery Slope”. I started this blog with the anticipation of chronicalling my slide down the slope toward becoming a Galoot, or at least a wannabe Galoot, but it has taken kind of a funny turn. Yesterday my grandmother unfortunately passed away after 88 years on this Earth. She’s found her way upsta...

Toddler Bed #2: They both like it!

03-01-2011 03:37 PM by AmandasHusband | 3 comments »

Two weeks sitting in the garage and I finally primed and painted the toddler bed. Valspar Foxtrot I believe is the color. It’s an off-white/cream color that my wife said was perfect as she didn’t want white. I primed it white and when I was painting it I had to wear my sunglasses to even tell where I had and hadn’t painted. That’s how close to white it is. But like I said in my other blog about this bed, I wanted something simple. I knew the hardest part was ...

Getting Started #3: After a short delay....

08-18-2011 10:17 PM by Tim | 3 comments »

... of about 3 years, I have finally found some time to start back on the workshop. Between a minor bout with cancer and my usual pursuit of wealth, I temporarily ran out of inspiration (not for woodworking, but for finishing out the shop room.) I finally had to admit that dry walling was not my forte, so I hired out the job. One contractor disappeared half way through the job and it took a while find someone reliable. I also broke down and hired a licensed electrician to wire up my 110...

Point to point build

09-03-2011 02:13 PM by BertFlores58 | 3 comments »

Well, I started the challenge to build this point to point. I followed Martyn and David (Patron) how to do it. However a slight change. I cannot cut three or more pieces stack together because the veneer I used was rolled plus it is so thin. HOW?The veneer I have were leftover from banding of our office doors…. meaning recycled also… The widest I can find is only 40 mm and comes into roll of about 2 meters. Therefore the only way is to cut it piece by piece. One more chall...

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.
