In Bath, Michigan I visited a beautiful operation that has a ton of wood. The owners name is Kelvin and you couldn’t meet a better person. He had bunks of Oak-Red and White, Maple, Ash, Walnut, Cherry, Elm, and even some Crab Apple. He had burls for turners and also other wood for turners. He has air dried and kiln dried lumber in various sizes. His ad says he doesn’t ship, but he says he does. Fed Ex. You can go on Craigslist and find his ad. Go to Michigan, then Lansing area, an...

New Shop and house

09-13-2009 12:07 AM by Mike Shea | 16 comments »

After 5 months of not woodworking i am finaly back at it. The first words my Fiance said to me were “Thank god you have your shop back. Maybey now you wont be such an ass” Aparently i was driving her crazy. 5 months ago my craftsman tablesaw broke on me. Its an extremley long story. I will just say that when sears could not fix the saw they refused to replace it. Even though i had purchased the factory extended waranty I was told that i needed 5 or more cervice calls in order for ...

Limbert Lamp Table - Stickley #240 #8: Ammonia Fume Finish

09-12-2009 08:24 PM by CaptainSkully | 8 comments »

Well, after three days in solitary, I decided to pop the the weasel. The different boards fumed to different tones, but I think with shellac and brown furniture wax, it’ll be just non-perfect enough for some charm. The wood putty had no tannins in it, so it’s almost white. Luckily, one corner is perfect, so that’ll be the one facing out. I tried my Dark Fumed Oak aniline dye, and it didn’t work on the putty either. I even brushed the liquid ammonia directly on...

Step-back Cupboard Build #17: Been busy with other things but finally have some time to work on the cupboard!

09-12-2009 08:07 PM by rwyoung | 0 comments »

Once more into the breach! OK, so the door is hanging temporarily. Since I don’t have back boards on the cupboard yet, this is a pretty easy scribe. Zip, zip, mark, mark. I don’t have a terribly fancy bench so a little bit of creative clamping is in order. People make fun of Harbor Freight for a lot of stuff but their wooden handscrew clamps are a darn good deal. Can’t have enough of them! Use one at each end of the workpiece and then clamp them to the overhang on...

Fixed a chair

09-12-2009 06:44 PM by Safetyboy | 1 comment »

Not a huge project, but this is the type of thing that, before I was a woodworker, I would have just tossed away. My favorite camping chair broke on our last trip – one of the horizontal braces split where it was held in place by a screw: My new woodworker self said “I can fix that!” The original piece just had a rabbet that sat on top of the vertical piece, and was only held in place by the screw and some glue. I figured I could make an improvement by cutting ...

The Art of Wood #2: Learning

09-12-2009 06:11 PM by Rogue | 1 comment »

Most all of the projects that come through the shop are things that people didn’t know that thay could have done. In addition most of my projects, the ones that are a big enough deal to post on LJ’s, are things that I’ve never done before. Mind you it is harder to convince a custormer to commition a piece when all they have is your word that you can do it well without having a reference of the exact project that they want made. This line always closes the deal though “...

Found the brass pins

09-12-2009 06:03 PM by TomTinkerSum | 1 comment »

Fellow woodworkers, Thanks for the people that responded Friday afternoon to the brass pin and where to find them. I was doing some of the checks for various websites or items to search for. Off to the side after not quite what I was looking for, I found a website out of New Berlin, WI(Near Milwaukee). They were reasonable, trusted, and someone to talk with if I had to. Never know with internet nowdays. They have all kinds of metals, sizes, shipping options, etc… Again, THANKS for the...
