The cottonwood came from the K Ranch on the Colorado Utah border in Dinosaur Colorado. And yes it is seriously the name of a town. Here is the rough material. each stumo will sit on a base, the base it not necessary, it adds to the beauty

Juniper Coffee Table Base #2 #4: Hand sanding and polishing

02-15-2009 08:48 PM by Tim & Candy Hicks | 4 comments »

We are finally at the sanding and polishing stage. We shand with 180 to 220 on the darker wood and 220 – 400 on the lighter wood. We will then take it outside where the light is perfect and make sure that we have all the scratches out of it. The colors look dull but once we spray it they will stand out.

I live in north east OHIO. The 12×20 outdoor shed also serves as a my dehumidification kiln. Kiln itself is 6×12, insulated, heated and sectioned off from the main storage area. It is a gambrel type shed/barn. I can dry smaller loads of harwood in my kiln. After the batch is dry enough for use, the next load has to go in.

Shop Air Filtration #2: Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERV) or Air Exchanger

02-15-2009 03:06 PM by Bob42 | 4 comments »

This is a basic explanation of what an ERV or an air exchanger is and how it might be used in a woodworking environment. What happens is it takes a portion of the inside air and exhausts it outside. At the same time it takes the outside air and brings it in. But, while doing that it takes the energy (heat or A/C) from the inside air and either warms or cools the incoming outside air, but, without mixing the two. So you are not bringing back in the bad inside air but transferring it’s e...

Small Entertainment Cabinet #4: A little side tracked, again...

02-15-2009 07:27 AM by Lee A. Jesberger | 33 comments »

So, I was thinking, how could I complicate this. I’ve already rebuilt the top 3 times, due to these brilliant ideas. LOL I may never actually finish. Anyway, I was thinking some sort of design in them would give it a little extra kick, or maybe a different veneer. I laid out a few dif...

Game Board #3: Final ok to begin work

02-15-2009 05:57 AM by Rustic | 0 comments »

Well, My Cousin’s Wife has just given me the okay to build the game board. She needs 4 by April. I am going to go to Woodcraft to do most of the milling as I don’t have the equipment. My local woodcraft rents shop time on Fridays, $25.00 for a 3 hour session and full use of all tools available. It shouldn’t take me that long to get these done. Just though that I would update everyone.

Greetings…....Need some basic advise. I have a 10” table saw and need to buy a dado blade. If I only need to make 1/2’’ groove, (and is there ever a real need to go that much deeper) is a 6” blade acceptable or should I get an 8” blade? Thanks. Al
