Old door mirrors

07-08-2010 08:07 PM by Briansey | 3 comments »

I had an old oregon pine painted door that was in pieces – unfortunately we did not take a photo of it, but we have another door that is the same design and I will take a picture of that. Hubby first decided to repair the door but as I had no use for a door we decided to leave the old paint on, cut it into two and turn them into mirrors. After hubby did the woodworking part of the project, I sanded down all the loose paint. Painted a soft blue over and then finished it with a gal...

Table saw island #7: The sliding flip up out feed extension table

07-08-2010 06:08 PM by 559dustdesigns | 9 comments »

I have been looking forward to this part of the table saw island for a long time. In fact its been in process for a month or so, but I have had the idea to build one for years. I need to have out feed support on the table saw when ever cutting large sheet goods or long lumber. However I don’t always need the extra table taking up space and I don’t always need the support in the same position on the back of the bench. So here is my first sliding flip up out feed extension table, bu...

Candle Holder #3: The Finishing Touches

07-08-2010 06:07 PM by Huckleberry | 4 comments »

OK we are out of the clamps with our project and we level the legs. Next we do a little more finish sanding and spray our finish. *Note one thing I forgot on the video I buy adhesive backed felt and put on the bottom of the feet to ad that “Pro” touch to it. Enjoy and if any would not mind doing me favor, how about leaving some reviews on iTunes for me. Thanks In Advance, Huck

Not quite in the workshop... #19: Lousy weather, a shop full of stuff, and holes in the yard...

07-08-2010 04:26 PM by dbhost | 5 comments »

Last week it was hurricane Alex that hit south of us and dumped a ton of rain on us all week, now it is closely followed by what is now being called “Tropical Depression #2” whatever that means… I know all it means for me is a ton more rain. I have the posts for the fence up, and set in cured concrete, except for the last two. The holes for those are bored, and I am praying that all this rain doesn’t back fill the holes. The ground has been FAR too wet to finish wit...

Ridgid TS3650 #1: Found It

07-08-2010 03:17 PM by Carreiro | 3 comments »

I’ve been in the market for a new table saw for a while, but I haven’tdone much about it. Life has pulled me in different directions andfinding the time to think about a table saw purchase has been far fromimportant. However, recently things have changed. With the birth of myfirst child I’ve been thinking about all the things that I would loveto build for him, so that spurred on my quest to upgrade from mySkillto something a little more stout. I’ve contemplated the ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #35: Some Ornament Pictures

07-08-2010 12:57 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 14 comments »

Yesterday turned out to be quite a productive day. I cleared up all my correspondence and got all my cutting done and the pictures to the wholesaler and I even had a little time to paint in the evening. I even started to do some writing of the final packets I have to assemble, but I thought I would be fresher for something like that in the morning and opted with the painting. The ornaments were quite challenging but I was able to cut them without problems. They were stack-cut with one la...

My newest undertaking

07-08-2010 12:19 PM by BigTiny | 6 comments »

Well, here I am, making my first blog entry… I guess a good start would be to tell a bit about my latest undertaking in wood, sort of… I recently got a bargain I couldn’t pass up on a pair of large model aircraft kits. Since they’re balsa wood, I guess they fit here… The models are both of DeHaviland types, a Turbo Beaver with an 8 foot wingspread and an Otter that’s got a 6 foot span. They are very detailed, having been made from the original co...

Luthiery Fun #2: Rosette

07-08-2010 09:07 AM by Chinitorama | 3 comments »

The top was glued up as any other panel would be, only thinner at about 3mm. The material was a lucky find at a local lumberyard. Nicely quartered cedar is easy to find here in BC. Unless noted otherwise, Titebond 3 is the glue used. Rosettes in classical/flamenco guitars are most often mosaic and herringbone inlay. I love the look of traditional rosettes, but they are complex to make from scratch. Mass-produced rosettes can be purchased from most of the big luthier supply houses. As...
