Hi LJ´s I finally got the time to work with the doors to my cabinet. My first idea was to make panel doors but I do want the surface on the inside of the doors to be as clean as possible, without joints. i also want to use the full thickness of the plywood, 18 mm, to be able to hang tools on the inside. I decided to make a compromise, the look of panel doors on the outside and the sturdiness of using a clean plywood surface on the inside. to be continued … Thank you...
Done The connections turned out not so good. So I desided to improve them with selfmade filler. I made it from birch sawdust and pva. The connections became better. But the filler became very noticable espetially after covering by leenseed oil. Sanding did not help much because the filler penetrated deep into wood. I am little bit disappointed because I was going to post this step stool as a project. But now I hesitate.Tomorrow I cover the stool with liquid wax but from my expe...
I missed posting yesterday because I didn’t really feel that I had anything unusual or interesting to talk about . Things here have been really busy and I find that some days I just don’t have a lot of new information to share. I am coming up on four years of writing here now (I had to check – I thought it was only three!) and while I have many, many new readers, I sometimes feel that I am being redundant when I tell of the ‘routine’ things that I did on the p...

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a blog post on sanders because I have gotten a lot of questions about them. There are basically 3 sizes of sanders hand sanders, benchtop sanders, and stationary sanders. Hand sanders include palm sanders, random orbit sanders or ROS, detail sanders, and belt sanders. Palm sanders vibrate back and forth and you can get in corners with them because the bottom of the sander is a square shape. Random orbit sanders spin and vibrate and you get a really polishe...

Just a quick post with a picture of a beautiful piece of LARGE woodworking… Of the segments, 2 are concave, the others are convex. I know that is probably not the correct terminology since the segments are not “curved” as in a lens where you would use those words to describe the shape, but it seems to be fitting… so, I used those words. :-) Anyway, this piece of work is about 6 feet across. I just thought it was interesting – don’t know much mo...

The weekend of the 16th my dad and uncle came through as we all were heading up to the Twin Cities to hang out with my brother for weekend and take on a Timber wolves game. The timing was pretty much perfect and I had them help me glue up the 3/4” industrial grade particle board. The counter top on the left was glued up at 8’ and the right side was 4’ long, both 30.5” wide . I didn’t use any clamps, just screws about every foot along the sides and then down th...
