Dresser #4: Mission Complete

07-10-2010 03:29 PM by AFChip | 1 comment »

So I finally got to the staining process. It’s a first for me staining something of this size and it most certainly did NOT go off without a hitch. I applied 2 coats of Dark Walnut to all the visible wood pieces. The first coat went on perfect. The second coat, I didn’t remove as much stain as I should have before it dried, and I wound up with that nice tacky over-stained surface. Took me a whole day and a bottle of mineral spirits, but I was able to clean it up without havi...

Fibre, the LumberJock Way

12-20-2008 04:05 PM by MsDebbieP | 18 comments »

Dec. 20/08 I just have to get another LJ Sweatshirt!! I love my sweatshirt so much that I wear it all the time around the house – I mean all the time, from morning to night. That means that when doing woodworking I get get covered with sawdust. Not a problem really, it is to be expected. But today I realized that perhaps I should have a sweatshirt for woodworking and one for the rest of my day. Why, you ask? Well, I’m sure I have sawdust in my bread dough. Most people rea...

Gun Cabinet #8: Placement

06-26-2014 07:41 PM by AlexTelfordHasWood | 2 comments »

About a week into summer I had a brilliant idea to place this project in my closet. My room is very small, so this process was difficult by myself. When I first brought it home my dad said it was neat and that he (being a lifelong wood worker) had never made a free standing cabinet piece. Although, he did say he could see some things wrong (and kept these to himself), I had a project on him. And he was happy with the placement. Me: 1, Dad: 0. Upon reflection: this was a very painstakin...

Building boxes #2: Glueing the outside together

01-08-2014 03:54 PM by nate22 | 3 comments »

After getting the pieces cut for the box cut out I have got it glued together. It took me long enough to get it square before I could clamp it all together. Is there a good way to make a jig so I don’t have to take so long to play with it getting it squared.

Camera lens

04-13-2008 10:19 PM by Don Kondra | 3 comments »

Geez, I thought I was done with shopping/research :) Seems that once you have your background and lighting down pat the next step is better glass. Keep in mind when I originally purchased my camera I didn’t consider it might be necessary to upgrade the lens. I did understand I may need a different lens for landscape shots for instance. Through this process I’ve come across various sites that show images from one end to the other of the range of a particular lens. I’...

A workshop out of the floodplane #2: Cheap replacement tools

01-18-2011 08:30 PM by withheld | 5 comments »

So after the house was completed in March of last year, I began replacing the tools I had lost. I found a table saw, thickness planer and drill press that was in a shop being sold off by a widow. It appeared the poor fellow had not used a lot of the equipment for a while. There was lots of rust, and some makeshift fixes to the equipment. First was a 10” Craftsman table saw. I spent some time and a lot of elbow grease doing what I could for the surface of the table. I used a lot of...
