Day 2 started with taking my glued up seat out of the clamps and taking my first shot at carving out the seat with a grinder. I have not done this before so it took me a bit to get the technique down. It will take far longer to perfect it. I was fortunate to have Bill’s undivided attention and patience. He helped me get the angles right until I started to get my seat formed. Had I tried to learn this on my own, I guarantee that I would have wasted dome prime lumber until I got to this ...
Does anyone know where to mail order hardwood via the internet?
From all the feedback I got on my end grain finishing problem, Kaleo had the biggest word (oxidization) so I think he’s right. :^) However, I couldn’t bring myself to apply his solution, which was to sand the box down and then to put a finer grit on the end grain. Actually, my wife instantly vetoed any solution which involved removing the finish I already had on it. She loves the box, and isn’t concerned about the flaws. But I had to do something. So here’s what I d...
After about one week of sanding. It took forever! I will be attaching the top with countersunk lag screws. The holes are over sized to handle movement. The screws will only bite into the top. I put the base together to test it. I built a large tent this time from plywood strips and extra bender board left over from the garden. Here is a shot of the table going into the tent. Suited up for ammonia. Here are the test pieces. Left to Right: After four hours with no finish, ...

From my latest blog entry, First, my thanks to all who read my earlier entry, and sent me e-mail requesting a follow-up. Here is that follow-up, from my blog:==================================== In this episode I answer a question from Michael, on WoodNet: Is there a difference in suntanning before or after applying the Waterlox? I noticed that you only applied one coat on 1/2 of the board but never showed the end result of the suntan. And my reply was: I currently have the tes...
Just having some coffee here and thinking on a few things. One is a timer. I have a timer the kitchen type. I have found uses in the workshop for it such as timing glue drying when using a fast drying glue. Titebond makes one that is pretty good. What other uses might a timer be good for in the garage? I’ve been thinking about an outlet for free wood. I have posted on the local Craigslist in the wanted section for free piano’s. I had two responses. I am picking one up today. Th...
Well, it is finally painted and today is an exciting day. It is hard to be at work and know that I get to go home and finally put the hardware on to complete a project, even if the project is to simply hold taters and onions. It is still a handcrafted piece that will be cherished for a long time. Hopefully, I will remember to take some pictures so when I am at my office next week I can post the pictures for everybody to see.
