Desk rebuild #5: Drawer construction

09-14-2009 06:33 AM by Ben | 0 comments »

So I overcame the router issue with a new router. I bought a Triton 2 1/4 HP model. It seems to work OK so far, although all of the accessories are different than the Porter Cable versions, so I am slowly building up what I have for it. Some of the attachments are a bit awkward—the plate to support bushings didn’t line up quite right with the bottom of the router, and the hose connection requires a threaded 1 1/2 hose. Fortunately, I could work around both these issues. On ...

An Office for the House -- Complete With Woodworking Projects #7: Getting Close to Done With the Desk--- and a quick question...

09-14-2009 04:28 AM by RobH | 4 comments »

Hey all, I am making really good progress on the desk. I am currently putting the finish on the top. I got the two coats of shellac on it late last week, and today I got the first coat of water based polyurethane on. It is looking really good. Now, for the quick question. The polyurethane is water based satin polyurethane. The question: Is it really necessary to sand between coats. I always have because I have always heard you needed to, but this finish is looking so good that I ...

I am working on a small box that has a spalted maple top. Final sanding and finish remain to be done. I am debating what kind of lift or handle to put on the top, my general goal being not to detract from the spalting pattern. Right now I am leaning toward a small, simple, round or perhaps square walnut (or some other wood) post centered on the top, about 3/4 inch high. Whattaya think? Any suggestions from those LJ’ers who are more artistic than I? Comments and opini...

Solar Kiln #1: Solar Kiln

09-14-2009 03:39 AM by HalDougherty | 14 comments »

I’ve started on my new solar kiln. The plans are from Virginia Tech’s solar kiln project. I’m using the modified plans for a 2000 bft kiln. The framing is 2X4 white pine, floors are made from 1” white oak, the outside siding is 1” white pine with 1” poplar over the pine. After the insulation is installed the inside will be covered with plywood. The supports are made from log sections of black locust. I’ll have more photos when it’s f...

Walnut Guitar #1: Tuner Head Inlay

09-14-2009 12:25 AM by interpim | 5 comments »

Well, I am in the process of my first attempt at a guitar, and I have decided to go with Walnut to build it out of. I am designing it somewhat similar to a Les Paul, but I am putting my little twists on it here and there. As they say, when it rains it pours. I guess that applies here as well. Because I attempted my first inlay today. It isn’t perfect and there are some spots that need a little filler but I think for my first attempt I did fairly well. I first sawed off a coupl...
