It's gonna be....a boy!

04-06-2010 02:14 AM by ScottMorrison | 16 comments »

Well, this is sort of woodworking related… My wife and I went to the hospital with my son and his pregnant wife for a routine sonogram, and found out that my grandchild will be a boy! WoHoo! Looks like another Morrison woodworker is in the making. As if I needed another reason for a glass of single malt and a cigar. Life is good…

Going to local shows. #10: Maleny Wood Expo 2010

There was a vast array of fine furniture, and wonderful timber items, at this years Maleny Wood Expo… While it was once again a very quick trip around the show at the last minute.. I think I captured the essence of the show fairly well.. There are two exhibitors that I have written about separately, so they are not included.. several others may have been missed because, as I say, once again not enough time to do everything.. Only two days… and what with the Torque and my ...

Wood Glout

05-17-2010 02:03 AM by Dyidawg | 7 comments »

Just got back from my neighbor’s house. Scored 120 board feet of 50+ year old white oak floor boards. They are 10 feet long by 1 foot wide, 3/4 thick. They are from a remodeling and there is more to be had. When all is said and done I should have over 300 feet of this material. I have no idea what it must be worth, but I plan on putting to good use. All I have to do is plane off the finish. Any ideas for projects?

Chairmaking at the Appalachian Center for Craft #2: Day 2

07-13-2010 04:10 AM by doorslammer | 2 comments »

Today started off a bit slow. We began by choosing our lumber. We had the option between walnut and cherry so I chose a nice piece of cherry since it seems like I always work in walnut. Next, we traced the template for the back legs onto one half of our stock and rough cut and jointed an edge to create the plane for the back leg to side rail joint. We got to use the 16” Powermatic jointer after some adjustment to get the in-feed and out-feed table parallel. This was a bit dis...

Hello All, I have begun to try to understand finishing. It is going to be a long strange journey, filled with curse words, disappointment, and sorrow. But it is a necessary part of the the path to unsuckiness in woodworking. http://su.pr/2I1wky Brian

Shop Renovation #1: Shop Renovation #1

Hi everyone. Just over a month ago I wrote that I retired from work and mentioned that the timing coincided with the start of a shop renovation project. Here is the post, “Benchmark: http://lumberjocks.com/topics/19102. At the time, the foundation walls had been poured. A lot has taken place over the past month but not on the shop. Our contractor is building a mud room at the front of our house in addition to this shop renovation and he decided to work on the mud room first. He...

Bookcase and Wall entertainment unit #7: finish/ delivery/ installation

09-15-2010 01:32 PM by rando1 | 0 comments »

The past few days have been wonderful for finishing! Not as humid right now, thank goodness! In the process of the finish we first did a once over with sand up to 220, filled nail holes and then applied general finishes whitewash stain. Wiping off the excess allowed a lite look and a little grain to show. After this dried I went over the unit with 320 to create “rough or worn areas on edges and around details. Next, we wiped minwax puritan pine with toner added…...Yeah, wha...
