I’ve been spending to much time on my PC. So I’m kicking my butt out to my shop, & see what I can get accomplished.
Hai Everyone,Cameron,thanks for posting your honest opinion, on my how to project,I believe that God made the wood with some kind of many reason, pls look around our house,office or somewhere else, many our belongings made from wood,do you think its been there before we are ? or its falling from the moon, 1000% from harvesting ofcause.And in my country not all people or companies are able to do harvest or just cut them down even if the trees are belong to us and growing behind our backyard, m...
Instead of working on the lathe stand this past weekend, the handsaw geek went a-rust huntin’. Several yard sales did not net very much of interest, as the ‘watch’ list for items is very narrow. Paydirt was found at one sale, however, as the peddler-of-the wares had a table with some vintage tools displayed on it. A veritable geek magnet. Among a pile of old wood handle screwdrivers, files, and hammers, these items were found: The plane is a Stanley #220 block, and the push...
Here is the finished product. We added the white paint to the parts that needed it with a small roller. The old signs were made from Cedar and had been up something like 20 years. They were almost completely rotted away but you couldn’t quite tell until we removed them and they were basically an ant and termite farm. These should last at least another 20 years, only needing the paint kept up with when they start to look bad. We paint them with common exterior grade Behr paints so retouc...
We’ll the file cabinet is finally finished. I applied 3 coats of Arm R Seal satin with a new T-shirt. This is the first time I’ve worked with this product, and I really like it. It is much thinner than Minwax, and goes on very easy and was pretty forgiving. I let it dry at least 6 hours between coats, and scuffed it with 0000 steel wool after the second coat. The final coat went on silky smooth with no real dust specs that I can find. I like the satin finish, and will use it...
I wasn’t planning on entering, but yesterday the bug bit me. I usually like to use the material I have on hand, & I couldn’t find a 2×4, so I decided to make a box. I drew up a pattern of what I wanted to make, & proceeded on my adventure. That’s all I’m going to show you today is a picture of the piece of wood I’m using. After all, this is top secret! Continued!
I’m using the Kreg jig on the face of the cabinets and to join the ply together. So far I like how sturdy it is using glue and screws but I could kick the lumber “expert” that talked me into using 1/2 in ply for the carcasses. I’m doing ok with it, but I wish I’d at least got 5/8 in or even 3/4. I was told 1/2 in is the industry standard…so I guess part of me took that as a challenge, and the other part took the savings on the ply. I have a Skil router ...
So I was asked to build this as a retirement shadowbox. Any ideas on how it’s going to turn out? How would you build it?
This is a group of pictures that was taken at a LumberJock Picnic held at Lee Jesbergers Shop in Central New Jersey September 29, 2007. I had been trying to get some pictures of possibly one of the first lumberjock picnics that was held. I always wanted to invite myself to visit Lee’s shop and we had chatted about it a couple of times. But then I suggested that we have a picnic there and he agreed. Lee almost agrees to anything. We had a fantastic time. I hope that I can remember ...
I saved it. Does that count for anything? I’ve been having a bit of an adventure staining the table. Aside from not handing it to a professional I know what I did wrong, I tried staining the table. Does good plywood have a project side and a non-project side? I’m using maple plywood. When I made my cuts, I made it so that the plainer side was facing out. Apparently that was my first mistake. So, After I got everything cut, glued, screwed, sanded etc. I hesitated before ...
