Hi, My name is Gary and I’m a Wood Hoarder. I just can’t past up a deal on wood. About 2 weeks ago I bought some very nice cherry from a friend who has been holding it about 15 years for me. While the stack is much diminished since the first time I saw this wood, it is still lovely to behold. He only had about 11 boards of full length left and several cutoff pieces and some pieces split from a log. The only reason he is parting with this stack of treasure now is because he is clea...
OK – so now the folks on the forum have told me how to paint PVC with success. Now I would like your opinion if painting the PVC is even necessary. Would you paint the PVC tubing between the wheels? I’d really like your opinions. Thanks in advance.
NORTH POLE – Due to the increasing population of the world, it has been reported that Santa Claus (AKA Kris Kringle) cannot keep up with the many furniture wishes he has received this year. Santa tells reporters in his yearly press conference that, along with population growth, many other factors have contributed to the problem. The popularity of a baseball bed, murphy beds, and a Princess Castle Loft made his schedule very demanding. Also complicating matters, many of his key Elve...
I’m getting ready to assemble my little scooter. I’ve drilled the hole in the head to accept the dowel. The plan calls for only gluing the dowel into the hole. But I’m wondering if I should drill a second hole through the side of the head and into the dowel and insert a cross dowel (1/4”). I’m thinking that between the glue and the cross dowel the joint would last a lot longer. I’m thinking of drilling the hole for a cross dowel at the black dot on the p...
In September I had the good fortune to spend a week at Hal Taylor’s Rocking Chair University. Rocking Chair U gives you the chance to work with Hal in the building of one of his world famous rockers. The week I visited he was building a prototype of a new, smaller rocker that was based on a chair that he had built years ago. This was a week like none other! From the beginning to the end I learned so much. Not only about rocking chairs but woodworking itself. Hal is a great inst...
No project can begin without supplies. We need things like sand paper and whatnot. Well, I just ordered some and some contoured sanding grips to help sand inside the tricky spots of my stocking/coat hanger. In addition, I ordered the hooks and hangers for the back of it. So, I’m all set for getting this bad boy done as soon as they get here. Based on when I ordered, I suspect they’ll be here next Thursday, just in time for next weekend to serve for getting the whole thing don...
Addison is already here as most of you already know ( and doing just fine). I’ve been really busy since we returned home from Addison arrival trying to get the crib finished up. I actually finished it up the weekend after we got back, but I’ve to busy to get things posted. The changing table is in finish right now and I’ve been busy with that to. They came up this weekend for the holidays and are going to take the changing table back with them to Texas. Then when finish is ...
The two smaller divided light doors were in individual cabinets that set on each end of the vanity. Between those two cabinets is a curved bonnett connecting the two cabinets together. There will also be a crown wraps the the top of the bonnett and continues around the room. Thought maybe you’d like to see what the doors were going in. Here’s a few pictures with it all together. Thanks for having a look.
I just got through doing a project that hand some curved raised panels, but instead of being outy’s these were iny’s. I go through the same process to make the panels the only difference is the way the profile on the edge is run. I purchased a horizontal router table from Woodhaven to help get these made and a vertical raised panel router bit that matched the all the flat panels on the project. Like I said the process is really close to the same, its just the way location of the...
From my blog: ===========This is Part 3 of 3 of the session on Scrapers: History, Preparation and Use, with Christopher Schwarz. Part3 concludes the series on scrapers. To get some continuity from Part 2 into Part 3, I included the last 3 minutes from part 2 as the introduction to this episode. This way you can get back to speed quickly. In Part 3 Christopher Schwarz actually draws the burr on the scraper. This Part starts with some discussion by The Schwarz on drawing the burr, and ...
