002: a rolling base for my planer #6: polyurethane, drawer handle, and bolting on the planer

05-25-2009 11:45 PM by Gary Fixler | 8 comments »

I didn’t like how the “Ebony 2718” Minwax stain looked in the last entry in this series, so I grabbed a can of flat black paint from a recently completed project for my friends’ wedding, and after a 24-hour drying period, painted right over the stain. I went out to the shop several times yesterday to sand @ 220-grit, and apply another layer of Minwax’s water-based polyurethane. Water-based simply because I had it, and I also don’t love finishing ...

Wood Gloat #4: Filling up the wood storage.

07-24-2009 11:45 AM by degoose | 37 comments »

I finally got the other rack [I bought 2 and put one inside.] into the wood storage area… Went down to my mate Pat’s Demolition yard and picked up 3 of the 5 pallets of European Wild Cherry that I had stored there. [These boards are of various length and width and thickness… mainly 2’ long. 1 to 2’’ thick and up to 4’’ wide.] The other 2 are coming tomorrow.Even though we had them wrapped they were stored outside and they are slightly damp.. oh...

Sqeezing more shop into small space continues #7. Waiting for rip fence parts.

08-11-2009 05:48 AM by dbhost | 3 comments »

I must admit that progress has been slow since I broke the head piece on the rip fence. The new one is ordered, along with a scale indicator. I plan on getting the fence put back together, and adjusted square once the new parts come in. For what it’s worth, the parts order was made through M and D Mower and while this is my first order through them, I have heard good reports on their business ethics. My only issue with them so far is shipping rates. I am getting spoiled to free shipping...

Phildo92027 stopped by this afternoon with an envelope. Inside was a much-appreciated gift that he had collected from the Cabinet & Furniture Technology Department students and faculty at Palomar College. Thank you very much. I am blessed to have such friends. Myron

Wall Hung Console #13: Finishing

11-04-2009 03:56 AM by captkerk | 5 comments »

Touched up the last bits of sanding when I got home today, cleaned it up and was able to apply the finish. First coat of Tung oil. I’ll let it dry tonight, rub it down with some steel wool tomorrow morning and apply again. I’m thinking of doing three coats with steel wool after each and then a coat of wax. Here it is with the first coat of Tung oil still wet.

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a blog post on some tablesaw upgrades. Now it doesnt matter what kind of tablesaw you have. The first thing you want to do is upgrade your fence and miter gauge for the fence you should look at the bisemeyer fences. For the miter gauge look at the incra miter gauges. You dont have to upgrade to the bisemeyer fence or the incra miter gauge but you should definitely upgrade if you dont your just gonna get pissed and end up upgrading later. Now something that...
