Custom Floor #1: Driving myself crazy

04-12-2008 10:04 PM by Lee A. Jesberger | 22 comments »

We did a floor a few years ago for my sister in law. She has expensive taste, and wanted a floor that was somewhat different than the norm. We spent a lot of time a showrooms looking for a floor she was happy with. She narrowed it down to 3/4” hardwood, and was having trouble with choosing between Maple and Brazilian Cherry. I suggested mixing the two, by using the darker Cherry as a border. Since she is Greek it seemed liked a good idea to do Greek keys in the corners. We a...

Homemade, just like mom used to make

05-22-2008 08:04 AM by marcb | 4 comments »

After the discussion in the forum about turning a saw into a scraper I had some time to give it a go. I clamped the saw down in the small general purpose vise and pulled out the Dremel and cutting wheel. I was concerned about messing with the heat treat or messing up the steel in any other ways by over heating it during the cuts so I did them in a series of light passes. When done, I could handle the steel with my bare hands so I know I didn’t over heat it. 1st I cut the part aw...

Hey Everyone, In this episode of the Teen Age Woodworker i will show how i made the square ebony inlay in my hickory picture frames. !

Well ...

An adventure in Gilding

07-13-2008 05:43 PM by Alan Young | 7 comments »

I am working on a writing desk. After seeing John Frys cool ebonized and glided chair ( )I decided to add some gilding to project using Sepp Mica Powders. I started by gilding these applied carving pieces. I mixed the powder with Seal Coat and brushed it on. I applied two coats letting the shellac base dry in between coats.I was somewhat concerned that subsequent coats would dissolve the previous layer but I was please to find that these p...

Google Sketchup - Come Along for the Ride #13: Hall table project - starting out

08-04-2008 01:29 AM by Betsy | 7 comments »

Well – I’m still recovering from my surgery. Today is my first day/night at home by myself. I’m trying to keep busy by learning this Sketchup program. So far, it’s beating me. But I’m still going to keep at it. So my thought is that I can’t just keep trying to make things up to learn how to do the program. I think I mentioned before that I would try to use the program to draw the hall table that I made a long, long time ago. I happen to have the prototype in my bedroom so I could get the m...

Quality hand tools before their gone?

01-10-2009 08:01 AM by JuniorJoiner | 12 comments »

I recieved the latest Lee Valley catalog/supplemental today in the mail. I’m afraid it may just be the harbinger of doom. This supplemental was expected just for the new planes and dovetail saw.(opinions on those are not what i want to discuss)the scary part of is was the 25% of this digest is white pages of price changes for their regular catalog.I know this is one of many signs of the times, and prices are adjusting everywhere, but i’m afraid this is beginning of the end of anot...

Game Cabinet #1: Design

02-21-2009 12:04 AM by JohnVV | 2 comments »

Here is a quick picture of the design for the cabinet I am currently working on. It is basically made out of 3/4 ply, with dado joinery. Found this design in several different books, but they just used butt joints. One thing I still haven’t decided is how much screwing I should do (on the shelves guys!), and how to cover them up. I am also thinking about dressing up the front just a bit.
