002: a rolling base for my planer #6: polyurethane, drawer handle, and bolting on the planer

05-25-2009 11:45 PM by Gary Fixler | 8 comments »

I didn’t like how the “Ebony 2718” Minwax stain looked in the last entry in this series, so I grabbed a can of flat black paint from a recently completed project for my friends’ wedding, and after a 24-hour drying period, painted right over the stain. I went out to the shop several times yesterday to sand @ 220-grit, and apply another layer of Minwax’s water-based polyurethane. Water-based simply because I had it, and I also don’t love finishing ...

Knitting box #5: cutting the drawer tails

05-25-2009 11:10 PM by Luke | 2 comments »

I’ve just finished cutting the tails out with the hand saw. Here I am working on chiseling the tails to the lines that I marked out with a marking guage. I had some troubles getting them to fit with no gaps and realized that I hadn’t chiseled enough of an angle out so that the edges fit snugly. After doing that they fit great. I have the faces of both drawers matched so that it hopefully looks like they come from the same board. I marked inside the joint with numbers so that I kne...

Happy Anniversary. #1: Got a new tool!!! Of course.

05-25-2009 09:11 PM by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 6 comments »

Sunday was my wife’s and my 29th anniversary. She got earrings and necklace and I received a Dremel 400 with a bunch of accessories. Lots of happiness around the Sawdustonmyshoulder house. This morning in the shop, I sharpened 5 – 1/2 inch 4 tooth bandsaw blades with my new Dremel tool. Worked like a charm. $175 worth of bandsaw blades saved from the trash. Take a look at this blog site about how to do this. I saw it several months ago but I didn’t have a Dremel. This ...

Sam Maloof has left the shop.

05-25-2009 08:51 PM by wood_wench | 7 comments »

I was doing my typical free-time perusal of wood working blogs and sites when I came across the announcement that Sam Maloof had passed away on Thursday, May 21, 2009.After a genuinely stunned and heart felt moment of silence I began to reflect on what an impact this person, whom I never had the pleasure of meeting, had on my life. My very first adventure into wood working, beyond framing in doors and cabinets, was learning to build his signature rocking chair. My passion for wood workin...

How to post pictures in your blogs or forums 101

05-25-2009 08:15 PM by GaryK | 33 comments »

I have been asked by a couple of people how I add pictures into my blogs so I thought that I would make a little blog on how I do it. This is what works for me and not the only way to do it. First you have to have your pictures in your computer. You can download then from your camera or scan them with a scanner or whatever method you want. I like to resize the pictures in advance. The maximum width picture that you can display in a blog is 640. I don’t know what the limit for the ...

Osage Orange picture frames #1: The wood has arrived

05-25-2009 03:50 PM by ahock | 10 comments »

This is the first project that I’m working on since I’ve joined LJ’s and thought, “Hey, I’ll journal the whole thing on here and get some input from people…”. So that’s what I’m doing. I wanted to try my hand at Osage Orange, as I’ve seen some cool things done with it before and wanted a challenge, from what I hear it’s very hard and dense. I couldn’t find any locally, so I went to Bell Forest Products website and pick...
