poor baby

09-16-2010 04:47 AM by learnin2do | 7 comments »

I have this new guard for my shop and all my precious reclaimed and salvaged wood. My dogs killed the rest of his family when the babies were hardly a handful. This guy started showing up a few weeks later looking all sad. He keeps looming at the dogs, and us, hauntingly, as though we have the power to resurrect his mama. It is making me crazy. He looks so pitiful. -every night, sitting in a tree, or on the fence, with two pitbulls barking a few feet blow him him like crazy. -mayb...

Shop Renovation #2: Roof and Skylights

09-16-2010 03:34 AM by Lenny | 25 comments »

Today was a big day. My skylights went in! But, I get ahead of myself. On my last post, 12 days ago, I left off showing where the roof trusses were to be placed. John, my contractor, designed and laid out an elaborate rafter system to, in essence, tie together three roof lines. You can see in the first picture there is a family room roof in the foreground, a garage roof to its right and the existing roofline of my shop. John put in these half trusses and then, as I said, proceeded to ma...

Unique Entertainment Center #2: Part 2

09-16-2010 02:24 AM by Ray | 1 comment »

Man its been a long time since my first post so I will try to catch you up on my progress. I have been plaining a lot of cherry wood at the start of the project. I filled up three 55 gallon drums of shavings! I extended the feed area and the out area of the plainer with 2X4’s and positioned the plainer at the double doors that open into the garage to accommodate the board lengths. Sure glad I thought if using double doors! Lots of boards to be glued up! Again using the garage (my ...

Maloof Rocker - Padauk #6: Arms attached and grinding begins

09-16-2010 02:17 AM by yellowtruck75 | 3 comments »

I have the arms attached and I have gone through my first grinding/shaping session. I have to finish some blending on the underside of the arms and the underside of the seat. The headrest has been resawed to its final thickness and back supports are almost all glued up. While I wait for glue to dry I started on a child’s rocker also. Does the back left legs (as you look at it) look like it flares out to far? It seems like it does but I can’t tell for sure. If its not...

Wood finishing tips

09-15-2010 11:20 PM by Redford1947 | 8 comments »

I have develped a technique that has worked on several pieces now with outstanding results. I first sand to 150 (more or less depending on wood and how dark I want the stain) then apply a wood conditioner. I have found that the conditioner is critical regardless of the wood.Then I apply the stain. After drying I apply a first coat of poly, I like Minwax Semi-gloss, then sand with 320. After drying I apply a second coat then sand with 400 grit wet dry automotive paper. At this point I use...

Workbench #6: Gluing the Top

09-15-2010 10:41 PM by Clay Ortiz | 6 comments »

I thought I would post an update on the bench. It has taken me a while to get the top together because I didn’t want to have any mistakes. I’m pretty happy with the results even though I did end up with two issues with the dog holes because of over sight. The first thing I did was to get the pattern makers vise and a set of square dogs so I could get it laid out the way I needed it to be. Here are the pieces before I cut the square holes. This is my TS sled with the 3 deg...
