Child rocking chair

09-07-2010 02:57 PM by Doug Scott | 2 comments »

A few day ago I posted the child rocking chair I have been building for 30 years, and got alot of good coments, one said ( good luck selling that on a site for woodworkers ) You might forget the their is a link to put the post on your FACEBOOK. And thinking about some of the other coments I have desided to offer the pland for the child chair. It is a very well built rocker, and balanced, and with the curved seat I have sat babys that can’t walk yet and they don’t slide out of the...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #96: New Observation About My DeWalt Saw - Something to Think About

09-07-2010 02:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

There are times when I really feel guilty because I like my job so much. Not really too guilty, but sort of. I guess a better way to put it is that I feel bad for the people who really don’t like their own jobs. Maybe that is why I fight so hard to keep my business going and put so many hours in. The alternative seems very unpleasant to me. Although I have done many other jobs in the past, and I know if it comes down to it I will do what I have to in order to survive, I hope that I ...

Roll Top Secretaries Desk #2: Project Done

09-07-2010 06:22 AM by Jim | 3 comments »

Well the Roll Top Secretary Desk is now finished. It’s been many months in the making. What’s really amazing is that I didn’t really have any “Oh No, what have I done!” moments with this project. Everything just went together well and did what it was supposed to do. I wish all my projects went like that. Some of the real turning points of the project were: I was buying the canvas for the tambour, wondering if...

TV Stand Completed

09-07-2010 05:43 AM by johnnymo | 2 comments »

Well this is what I did this Labor Day weekend. I finished up the TV Stand that I Started for a friend at work. These are the finished pics. I did screw up on the sides the first time, I forgot to account for the square top when I cut the sides and they ended up being a 1/2” too short! Nothing like re-setting up your machines to remake parts…especially after you’ve cleaned up!Here’s some pics of the assembled projectAnd here’s some pics of the finished projec...

Poly (?) Finish that just won't dry

09-07-2010 04:42 AM by OhhCrap | 3 comments »

Have a relative that has a problem. They have a bench seat, top is simple AC nicely edged, the box under the seat is cedar lined. They believe it has a Poly based finish. Exposed surfaces are nice and dry, but when you open the lid, the finish is still tacky, and I mean TACKY. Flies can get stuck to it, we’re talking duct tape sticky and it’s been like this for over year. How the heck does one go about fixing this? They have left the lid up for weeks on end to no avail.

Cherry Frames #1: After 1 Application of Danish Oil

09-07-2010 03:56 AM by Biscuit | 0 comments »

Here’s a little peak at my first real woodworking project: three matching cherry frames with walnut splines for my credentials. After four years at my current job I figured it was about time to personalize my office a bit. I started with a few boards of 4/4 rough cherry that I purchased from a small hardwood dealer in the area and some walnut cutoffs that he had lying around. After planing down the lumber I was a little disappointed that it wasn’t perfectly clear, but after w...
