Arts & Crafts Dining Room Set #10: Make Like a Tree & Leaves

01-12-2010 02:19 AM by CaptainSkully | 2 comments »

I was able to successfully refinish my boo boos on the breadboard ends. I also sanded the leaves and finished them at the same time. The ends had a bit more stain to start with (from the previous finish), but they both came out looking great. I’m really glad I learned my lesson on shellac. BTW, it did a bit of redistributing of the aniline dye, so I had to quickly blend/tip it before it got tacky. I missed a couple of spots on one leaf but was able to blend it in with the gel stain...

I am making a red oak box for friends birthday. We were in the Marines together and I thought it would be slick to put a Marine Corps sticker on the inside of the box under the lid. I t is one of those foil stickers. I want to do a daft spray lacquer finish to make it purdy. Do I go on top of the sticker or spray first then apply the sticker. i wanted to spray the sticker on so it is really permanent but am concerned about something bad happening like the sticker or lacquer turning becau...

Bench Utilities #3: Shooting board and planning stop

12-11-2010 11:14 PM by mpmitche | 2 comments »

I have now added a few more bench hooking utilities to my list. Here is my shooting board that I plan to use to trim end grain. The board has about 14” of landing which should be plenty. And here is a little planning stop that has alredy come in handy for planning and for chisel work

Life, the universe and anything

02-08-2011 11:45 PM by scottb | 2 comments »

Despite having a backlog of projects to share, now that Christmas has come and (long) gone, and not having the out of doors to lure me far afield, (thanks to the lovely twice as much snow as last winter) I find myself somewhat absent on the social media front. – at least as far as creating content goes. Sure I’m attempting a photo a day challenge, and while most days its pretty much akin to “obligation blogging” (which, like Ogden Edsel sings, is not much fun.) I...

Reward Board #1: Design Sketch

03-23-2011 04:44 PM by hodgepodge | 2 comments »

My significant other and I decided it would be neat to have some sort of way to track the little ones good behavior, so we came up with the Reward Board. The children will have pieces (whatever they choose to be) that have dowels in the back. Each good deed will leave them closer to the star on the right. Once they get there they can exchange for a prize or continue to save for a bigger prize (this is kept track by little stars that go in the three holes to the left of their name). ...

Vortex Dust Collector Modification using a 14" wok #3 Conclusions/Observations'& Opinions

08-16-2011 06:36 PM by Toolz | 2 comments »

This morning I jointed an sanded a 16”x36” x4/4 piece of the “mystery wood” that I have since learned is probably American Sycamore. I have a metal trash can with a Woodcraft lid used as a pre-separator that catches the large chips etc. from the jointer. After milling and sanding I removed the canister to take a look. Wonder of wonders it did not have nearly as much sawdust caked as I had expected to see. I think removing the copper tubes that I used to lower the wok w...
