Stripping the canoe up to the bilge.

07-25-2010 10:39 PM by roaddog | 11 comments »

I started stripping the canoe a couple months ago but ran into a bit of frustration when putting in a walnut accent strip. The walnut machined a little differently than the cedar when I ran the strips over the router table to put the bead and cove edges on them. I had to walk away from the project for a while. I came back to it recently and after fiddling with the strips above the walnut strips it has been easy going since. It’s very satisfying to see the boat taking shape. A few...

Entry Bench and Mirror #4: finally done

08-07-2010 03:09 AM by rando1 | 0 comments »

We made it and delivered the entry furniture this week. After a sprayed coat of sanding sealer and three coats of water based semi-gloss laquer finish, it turned out nice. We look forward to the next project. !http://http://i751.photobucket.com/albums/xx159/randon1/IMG_3669-1-1.jpg(finished)!:http://http://i751.photobucket.com/albums/xx159/randon1/IMG_3669-1-1.jpg Sorry the picture did not turn out real well, not a lot of room.

Desk Build #6: Getting the Ole' Fisheye

09-15-2010 06:42 AM by Huckleberry | 3 comments »

. I have this desk all ready to get lacquered and man o’ man how I love the smell of lacquer. I get all ready to start my process and begin to shoot the desk. I do this this way most of the time. I shoot a coat of lacquer sealer let it rest an hour or so and then sand with 600 grit paper. I then start my top coat, I do this step pretty much the same as the sealer. When I go back to check my work about 1/2 hour later the top has all of these bubbles in it. What the @#*^ is this??? ...

Built In Closets #3: Face Frames

10-23-2010 12:48 AM by SPHinTampa | 0 comments »

I forgot to cover cutting the biscuits for the face frames in the last blog entry. So here we go. Using story stick, I marked the biscuit centers on the face frame styles. And I marked the center of one rail to set up the jig. Then I used a biscuiting jig that I built using plans from Wood Magazine to cut the FF sized biscuit joints for the face frames. Lesson Learned … make sure you have adequate space to cut joinery when you route a profile into a face frame … in ...

12-11-2010 02:34 AM by Dennis Zongker | 20 comments »

Design Drawings Completed, For a Music Box Finally finished with the design drawings for a 72 note movement, Music Box. It took me approximately 60 hours to come up with this design. Next is the working drawings, then it’s fun time, the woodworking part. The top marquetry will be a good challenge for me, but I’m really looking forward to it. On the front of the box is a Lyre Harp. Carved out of solid ebony. The foot design is a segmented turning with Maple and 8 Ebony pin st...

Palm Box (copy) #4: All Glued up (pics this time)

12-24-2010 07:46 PM by mpmitche | 0 comments »

The box is all glued up and the lid has been trimmed to fit the opening. I need to drill the holes into the lid and trim it to swing then it is off to cleanup, shaping and finishing. I think the finish is going to have to be added after it is give as a gift so the purpleheart has time to color back up.

Brides Heirloom Planes Restoration #1: Where we are now...

01-08-2011 01:35 AM by Maveric777 | 17 comments »

I wanted to take a little time to let everyone know where I am with my pair of hand planes I am restoring. I posted a while back about the Christmas gift I recieved from my Father In-Law (My Most Prized Christmas Gift). To make a long story short I was given two hand planes that belonged and where used by my brides Great Grandfather. I still get goose bumps about opening the box and seeing them for the first time. This is what I seen when I first opened the box…. One is a 10&#...
