They weren’t shiny enough. I know. In the eyes of a woodsmith, such as we, they were beautiful. But the guys who put years of work into their show buggies insist, as do the judges, that bedboards appear as though there’s a sheet of quarter-inch glass lying on top. Which they do now. He handed them over to someone else. A word about the someone else: He’s a guy who spent thirty years restoring and refinishing pianos. His current gig involves building and finishing furniture f...
I had to get moving on this project due to my original box just about expiring. The OSB is part of the Smiths packing crate I hauled home, I have never worked with this material before so it was all a learning exercise for me as well! The markings on the OSB indicate Norbord Sterling OSB2 so it should be OK. The replacement box is slightly bigger due to maximising the OSB sheet dimensions I had. First up I cut all the sections needed I may not use the narrow strip...
I’ve almost completed refinishing this old chest, and I’m curious to know from experts out there, just what era it might be from. I simply stripped it and coated all wood (pine) with shellac and 3 coats of General Finishes top coat. We bought it from a furniture restorer / antique dealer south of Lapeer, Michigan in 1976. I always assumed it was a carpenter’s chest, but I am now not so sure. It is clearly hand hewn, uses wood pin joinery, and what seem to be hand wrought square nails. •...

Have been thinking of making a doughnut chuck to help hold some of the bowls I turn. I have seen many good examples here on LJ,s. As I am pretty simple and did not want to spend a lot of time making a large disc and several rings. Thought of a way to use my flat jaw with homemade extension jaws for the back half of the doughnut chuck and just made one ring for now which will fit many of the size bowls which I need to do the bases on. There is reasons to have the safety of afforded by the o...
Assembly was finished late this afternoon. Tests showed I could achieve 90 degree accuracy between blade and table top, but from front to back of the blade in relation to the miter slots I was at least a sixteenth off in the back. Still some vibration after startup. Not having been run for a year has made some of the pivots a little stiff. As it was, I had to lube the angle pivots. A little more TLC. The manual doesn’t explain how to deal with blade to miter slot adjustment. A search on...
I have seen numerous ways to support a drawer. In this case, I knew that I would have to make my own. The drawer runners for the lower drawers (between the legs) would need to be around 5 feet long, and the runners for the core of the table would have to be 9 feet long. I was concerned about using hardwood since I would not be able to wax them once the table was built, so I did some googling around and starting looking at HDPE for slides. Then the idea became more clear – I decide...
