Sealing Pine for Outdoor Use

04-01-2014 01:52 PM by Al | 2 comments »

Hello again Can anyone tell me the best way to seal and waterproof, as best as possible, the legs of my Adirondack chairs. These are old chairs that I want to save for a few more years as I made 2 new ones to replace these with cypress. Thanks as always… Al

Power Upgrade #29: After They Left

04-19-2014 09:35 PM by Nate Meadows | 12 comments »

Ok, so turns out taking care of a sick wife, her taking care of me having a torn up body and brain and the two of us taking care of two kids takes more balancing than I thought.:) My ability to adapt has obviously been slowed since I was in the military. Anyway, what matters most is that we are moving ever forward! Thanks so much family for your patience! You guys rock! So, going back in time. When the men from the church came over to fill the trenches I was running around like a mad man t...

Working with recycled timber #31: PTLT Hinge rework

06-04-2014 05:13 AM by robscastle | 3 comments »

I purchased a second set of Concealed Hinge Blind Corner 95 Degree to do hinge rework on.Firstly the hinges are only designed for 19mm timber in their present form.This deduced from a graphic on the template and my prototype evaluation.However you can use them on timber larger if you wish. Here is how I used them on 38mm timber Simply a matter of recessing them This is only a prototype to enable me to complete my PTLT top with no opening gap when closed It appears that the...

Weekend Project - Cherry Wall Cabinet #2: Day Two

07-20-2014 11:20 PM by Guy Dunlap | 4 comments »

In this video of the series, I fit the shelves and then I can start making the door for the cabinet. I unfortunately made a mistake which set me back from finishing the cabinet within the time frame that I set for myself. Still I made some good progress and it’s really starting to look good. And as always, I like to hear your comments and questions!

end grain cutting board #2: planing and sanding for hours

08-11-2014 03:55 AM by bobasaurus | 5 comments »

Finished up the cutting board today. This old japanese plane has a wide mouth, so it works great for removing the glue squeeze-out stalactites. Used the low angle jack plane for leveling the pieces and flattening the board. This took quite a while, but worked great. Chamfering the edges prevented any blow-out of the end grain. I used a 1/8” roundover on the edges, then routed some handles in the sides with a 5/8” box core bit. After some careful stop block placement ...

What's a guy to do?

01-08-2007 06:53 AM by Don | 3 comments »

My computer crashed on Saturday, and I’ve not been able to visit my favorite site, LumberJocks. So I’ve ordered a new computer, but I don’t get it until Wednesday. Fortunately, I’m in charge of media production at my church, so I can access the Net (that’s where I am now). So things will be quiet from me for a while. I can hear you say – “that’s a good thing”. Talk wiith you all later in the week.

New toy for the shop

02-21-2007 08:26 AM by mark | 8 comments »

Well, I finally went out and bought a small bench-top planer for my workshop. I checked the FineWoodworking tool review site and decided to go with the Ryobi 13” planer. So far I have been able to make a lot of sawdust with it in a very short amount of time. All I need to do now is build a planer table to reduce or eliminate the snip. Overall it seems like a nice machine and I can’t wait till next month when I get to order the jointer. I have decided to go with the Yorkcraft 6R...
