Wood IDs #2: A look inside the second mystery branch

03-09-2009 12:17 PM by Gary Fixler | 2 comments »

It would seem Rob (user: socalwood) nailed another species down for me in my previous post – the Pride of Madeira – going off nothing more than one gnarled limb (which turned out to be the whole trunk and some branches of a small plant) and some withering leaves. Great job, Rob! I looked a bit more into one of the few branches of the second mystery species, and found a yellowy, eccentrically-ringed wood that seems to love to split along its length down its ring and ray lines. I...

I moved recently and i got some more place for a shop. I am getting some new tools etc to outfit it, slowly but surely! I saw on craigslist a 8 gallon(i thought it was a 4, but i’m not complaining) RIDGID wet/dry vac for 15$i called the guy and today i went to check it out. it works great, and it has a nozzle and hose. just a bit dirty but the suction is good.WHAT A DEAL! does anyone know any attachments that could help it be a makeshift dust management system?

Valances #2: Finishing Up

03-09-2009 06:39 AM by DavidH | 1 comment »

Well, I finally got around to finishing up one of these. There wasn’t a whole lot left to do from where I left off last time. I planed the top down to just over 1/2” thick and cut it down to size and finished up the assembly: From Valances My miters were not perfect, so some wood epoxy and wood filler for the nail wholes did the trick. From Valances After giving everything a good sanding it was time for a few coats of paint, 3 coats of a spray on primer, 2 coats of whi...

Sewing Center #6

03-09-2009 05:07 AM by robbi | 8 comments »

The biggest accomplishment I had this weekend was getting the two pedestals attached to the back and putting the apron in. No flubs this week…cuz I didn’t do much. The drawers still need a little work but I decided to give them a rest for a while and work on the rest (they look kind of crooked in this picture, but they really aren’t it’s the grain orientation that I screwed up on that makes them look like that….next weekend, feet and start on the doors I think....

Prospecting for Wood #6: Something Useful from the latest Salvage

03-09-2009 03:32 AM by Paul | 5 comments »

The results of my latest wood salvage. These are 3 sets of 12 drawers – Oak fronts with Poplar drawer sides. Each set is a different size – 24” 18” 12”. Cases will be sized accordingly, of course. Yet I used most the wood from the salvage to build the drawer cases. Here’s a pine version of something similar that I use in my shop for small items – layout tools, etc. I use different knobs on the oak and I’m more particular ab...

How do I woodburn? #1: Can someone help me learn to woodburn?

03-09-2009 02:17 AM by laurasautographs | 3 comments »

I don’t know if this is where you would put this, but I’m new here. I have always been interested in woodburning, but I’m not sure how. Is there anyone who could give me tips or some tutorials on how to woodburn things? I have a pretty nice burner, but I’m not to good, so any help would be appreciated.

Weather Station #1: And away we go...

03-09-2009 01:06 AM by newTim | 5 comments »

Now that I finished the Japanese Garden Bench I had the chance to begin a project I’ve been noodling about since Christmas. This is exactly how I like things to go. Always have a book to read, always have a project on the bench, always have a project set to go. BTW, the book, Atlas Shrugged. 1,100+ pages. The most relevant book I’ve read, I highly recommend it, but I digress. In the pictures you can get a sense of what I’m shooting for. A Galileo Thermometer flanked w...
