Turning a cherry plank of wood into a bowl.
Anyone know where to get Epoxy Spray paint – by the can – NOT online? I want to use it for refinishing hand planes. Thanks.
I am a person with many contradictory attributes. I am a computer analyst with an artistic side. While one part of me wants to let loose and go with my feelings, my more analytical side will keep me in check and anchor me the other way. I look at woodworking as a hobby and I also look at it as potentially a way of life. Depends on which side of my brain I wake up on in the morning. I make a pretty decent salary, am a home owner, pay child support, etc. So responsibilities take a good portion ...

MaFeBurnisher BLOGscraper set up tool Ok I posted the project, and here are the blog, since there seems to be some wishes for that now… If there are wishes, I’ll make a work drawing with measures, but I think it’s quite ‘out the road’.(And thank you, I’m better today, so I could spend a little quality time in the work shop 2×40 min.). The project comes from different ideas I have seen around, and the fact I’m not all happy for my VERITAS...

A lot of us take sanding wood for granted, yet it is the most basic skill we need to know about woodworking. I’ve often quipped that woodworking is 10% design, 10% construction, and 80% sanding. But with all the grades of sandpaper available, it’s something that can easily confuse the beginning woodworker. In this video, I have tried to boil sandpaper down to its basics.
Well, this one went together 2.5-3 times as fast as the first. Used 2×6 for the top of this one instead of a 2×4. I will switch out the top of the other horse to match. Didnt have enough plywood for the shelf, thats the last bit and it will be complete. I have been using the scrap cut offs to practice the finish I plan on using for my next project…
I don’t know about you guys but everytime i go down to my shop i can’t find any pencils . I bought a big box of pencils a while ago and now I can’t find any of them . I wish whomever is stealing my pencil they would leave me a nickel or something evrytime he takes one. I thinks the pencil theif is realated to the sock theif also . Evrytime we do laundry were are always missing a sock to. Happy sunday to everyone (expect the bastard taking my pencils)
Even with all the technology out there I still do the “OLD SCHOOL” FULL SCALE LAYOUT. For some reason I can’t get away from it. Even if I draw it on Auto Cad I still put more trust in it than anything else. I would really be interested in your comments. Yesterday I was looking around the shop and allot of 4×8 sheets of plywood had full scale drawings on them, AM I GOING NUTS ? Or does anyone else do this ?
