Burled Juniper Log Floor Lamp #2: Ready to drill holes

2003 days ago by Tim & Candy Hicks | 6 comments »

I got the limb 100% sanded, my husband is inlaying turquoise in the base, next we will drill the holes for the cord. The dark spot you can see on the base is where we applied sanding sealer, there is a bit of rot so this helps harden the wood and it also keeps the glue from staining the wood when we inlay the turquoise.

Twisted Coffee Table Base #6: Ready to Spray the Finish

2003 days ago by Tim & Candy Hicks | 2 comments »

Here is the larger coffee table base. Ready to be sprayed. We will spray them with Satin Polycrylic and most likely have to flip it upside down and spray the bottome with couple of coats and when that is dry, flip it back over and do the top part.

Juniper Coffee Table Base #2 #5: Ready to Spray the Finish

2003 days ago by Tim & Candy Hicks | 1 comment »

The creative process of building the supports for the glass top took longer than expected, but then again we always expect the unexepected, so then again we did expect it. Hahaha did that make sense? Anyway here it is, we are hoping to spray them tomorrow and sunday if the wind does not blow like mad.

Sketchup Shorts #2: Outliner - Component Selection - Anywhere, Anytime

2003 days ago by PurpLev | 3 comments »

Is there an easier way to select components/groups that are behind another geometry? or inside one? Is there a way to transfer a component from one group to another? Yes there is. Welcome the Outliner window. This tutorial refers to components in your model, but in this case, groups behave in the exact same manner. If not yet visible, click ”Window → Outliner” to see this window in Sketchup. The Outliner window shows you a list of all components and groups in your...

Garage Re-Do #16: Air Filter Arrived!

2003 days ago by MyOldGarage | 3 comments »

That’s a peek down the inside of the new Wynn Environmental filter - the 9E300BL one. I’m anxious to get some cutting done and get this puppy mounted on my Grizzly dust collector. Once I get it mounted and that, I’m going to move it over to a more permanent location and run one trunk of at least 6 inch pipe to the unit. The only problem with that is the PVC to “air pipe” sizing. It’s just frustrating to measure stuff and see the differences. I can...

Footstools #3: Looking for some advice

2003 days ago by Mark Gipson | 6 comments »

Salon footstool #2 is well under way and I am looking for some advice from fellow lumberjocks. As I mentioned in my previous blog entries I am using these footstools to try and learn a little about woodworking and try some different techniques on each one. For this stool I decided to make templates for the curves on the legs and stretcher. I cut a template from plywood after using Sketchup to make a paper template that was printed at actual size. I rough cut with the jigsaw and then used m...

Two doors Wall/Hanging Cabinet

2004 days ago by woodworm | 7 comments »

This is “honey build this” project or more cynically “you have all the tools, can’t you make this one?”...project.So I just measured the available space in the kitchen and started cutting the boards, without any Bill of Materials or a Cutlist. I did not start with any drawing or specific design, too straighfoward. The design and all the measurements were in my head. The first thing I built was the cabinet doors and then the cabinet box sides (left & right). ...

I had to cook up batches of Orange and Garnet Shellac and prepare some (zero or near zero pored )wood for Sunday… I cut off a foot of Beech and Cedar and then resawed them and glued them up into bigger panels.. So were looking at beech that is 12×14 and Cedar that is about 12×10ish.They are book ma...

Getting Closer

2004 days ago by GeorgeM | 4 comments »

Well, I finally have a workshop/storage room. It is small (about 12×18) but, hey, it’s mine!! Actually the room has been completed for a couple of weeks but I have not had time to do much except find a place for the storage (Thank goodness, I have a pretty good amount of “attic” space above the workshop). Today, I finished my workbench. Nothing fancy and not as pretty as some I see on this site. To be honest, it has a couple of corners that are not 100% square but it is level, strong and stu...
