Furniture finish

06-26-2010 02:35 AM by canadianchips | 1 comment »

I am asking for help ! I have used a product called “Black Bison Paste and wax Polish” . I am unable to buy it where I live. Rockler sells it but the USA has restrictions in shipping by postal or Air. Since I moved to Eastern Canada my options are limited. I am able to get BRIWAX. Just wondering if any of you have used Briwax ? I have been hired to restore an old dining table top.

Oak Pub Table #1: The Beginning

06-26-2010 02:08 AM by VinnieP | 4 comments »

For my parents’ 30th anniversary I told them I would build them a table for their remodeled basement. It is going to be solid white oak. I orignally planned on using quartersawn for the top, but in the end decided not to use it. I’m excited and nervous at the same time. I’m excited because I’ve never built a table before and I’ll get to use my new grizzly jointer. I’m nervous because I’ve never built a table before. So here it goes. I’...

Guarino Functional

Hi, Glen is at a Lie-Nielsen workshop today & wanted to pick up some veneer at Artistry in Veneer. Some of you asked to see more of Glen’s furniture. The video was taped on the last day of Glen’s solo show at the NJ School of Architectural at NJIT by a friend of ours Edison Lee, a videographer & rock climbs with Glen. We could not do all 23 pieces in the show, so we tried to highlight some. Marie

Workshop Build #21: Strapping the outside

06-25-2010 06:46 PM by ~Julie~ | 8 comments »

Time to think about putting up the siding on the garage/workshop. First we need to strap it.The siding will be horizontal so we used vertical 1×3’s screwed into the OSB every 16” OC. Around the windows and across the bottom we used 1×4s. The back is a straight 40’ width which is taking a lot of pieces! Before we can do the front, we need to build up a bit of the front small roof and deck posts. We haven’t quite figured out if the strapp...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #22: Random Thoughts on Friday . . . .

06-25-2010 01:28 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Some weeks I just don’t know where the time goes. I can’t believe it is Friday already. It seems that life is just whirling by with each day getting shorter. I look back on this past week, though and I did accomplish a lot. Some people were asking me what I was working on next, as they said they haven’t seen a new project in a while. I did a mental search and realized that the last time I cut was last Thursday or so when I cut the three frames. I have done some drawing...

A question...?

06-25-2010 12:44 PM by degoose | 48 comments »

I have a real dilemma here… I have been blogging about what I do for a while now and have had lots of enquiries about teaching how I do things… Most are from overseas… That makes it non viable…as such.. I mean in an actual school environment.. I am not in the position to run a school although I do have a few possible students here in Caboolture.. so local may be ok.. I will have to check out the requirements for running a school from my shop… etc… what I w...

Building a Credenza #8: The Guts

06-25-2010 08:34 AM by Blake | 15 comments »

I’ve gotten a lot done since the last blog but there wasn’t much to show for it so I waited until now to post. But the first thing I did was flip it over and plane and sand the dovetails to smooth them out. Here is the finished case joinery: Detail of the leg joinery and dovetails: THE GUTS So this isn’t particularly the exciting part to build (or watch being built) but here it is anyway. The inside of the cabinetry such as the shelves as well as the partiti...

Hey All!!! I have had a triumphant day. I had to build a jig, to hold tiny pieces when using the router table. It was a wonderful success. I can barely contain my joy. So tonight I wrote about how I built the jig and how to use it. I hope you enjoy. Brian
