now that I have the frame made, I can work on drawer supports.
Today, after some final sanding, it was time to start assembly. The top and shelf surfaces were glued and dropped into place.The drawer front was glued on.Then I drilled the holes for the knobs my wife picked out.She picked these because they are the same ones on her jewelry cabinet. She said she likes them and wanted the same. I’m using Minwax Dark Walnut stain. This is one of my favorite stains. It gives off a different effect depending on the wood and how you apply it. You can obtain...
More work on the Rietveld chairs. All of the chair parts are milled and cut to size, and are now marked out for the dowel joinery. Coming along! http://secondwindworkshop.blogspot.com/2013/01/marked-for-death.html
Well I would like to welcome my 3rd grandchild Ms. Ayrabella Rose Jones.She was for a few seconds the youngest person on the planet. I want to thank all you guys for the thoughts and well wishes, ALL OF YOU!This one was different for me because it is my youngest girl and she is still under my roof. I am glad it is done and await her return home with the new bundle of joy.
Question 1. Do all basset hounds think that under the saw horses is as good a place as any, or just this one? Question 2. Where did I put the pooper-scooper?
Just finished installing my new Delta T2 fence on my Craftsman saw (model 113.298720) that I bought new in ‘87 or ‘88. Yes, I’d suffered that long with the original fence! I used the existing holes in both the rails and table that are just to the left of the blade. I drilled additional holes in the right side extension wing. The hardware pack that came with the fence only included 2 bolts each for front and rear rail. I plan on picking up 2 additional each at hardware...
A trivial piece in a way, an often unseen piece, even by me, one of my favourites. When the routine sheet goods come in the back door, usually unloaded piece by piece, every grain pattern of every piece is admired or at the very least registered. Once in a while though you pause, gobsmacked. Then it gets tucked off to the side hoping the job won’t need it and later you offhandedly ask to buy just the one, thanks. One cabinet from 100% of one maple board. maybe a good challenge for...
EXPOSE PROGRESS IN SURFACE AGING AND CABINET WOODFINISH WHICH, IN MY MEMORY, WE HAD IN OUR HOUSE IN RUSSIA IN GERMAN VOLGA REGION. THIS IS OUR MEMORIES OF GREAT-GRANDFATHER AND HIS VARIABLE COMFORTABLE FURNITURE HANDMADE BY HIMSELF IN HIS OWN FREE TIME. WOODFINISH—IS AN OLD FAMILY RECIPE, BASED ON THE NATURAL WAX, WITH NATURAL PIANTS AND MINERAL PIGMENTS. WOODFINISH IS PREPARING IN SEVERAL STEPS, WHAT YOU CAN SEE ON THE PHOTOS. ITS PREPARATION TECHNOLOGY VERY TIME-CONSUMING AND DIFFICUL...
Also, video blog is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vEzqKl-QOwA&feature=youtu.be I was looking for some photos and saw this – very old, and remembered that long time ago saw rare architecture, sculptures and houses in Riga. I always liked how the tree with impression of the ages looks. It reminded me my childhood, when my grandfather was making different things in «old style». The more things changed, the more they stay the same – and in this time «old style» ...
Having successfully milled my board to four square, cut in a dado, and cut it to size, I worried that all that had been accomplished would be for naught once I learned I had to miter the corners to 45° and use splines for added support. I nearly panicked when they told me I had to use a “spline miter jig.” Now there were three words I was practically unfamiliar with individually; put them together to make a compound noun and I had recurring nightmares of failing 5th grade sentence...
