bowed table top

12-18-2013 03:06 PM by brucebaird1 | 3 comments »

I am making a small (36”x32”) art table for a young grandchild. I bought kiln and air dried oak and used biscuit joinery to make the table top. It was dead flat after joining and glue up and remained dead flat until yesterday when I brushed a coat of primer in preparation of painting a gloss acrylic finish. This morning I put 2 coats of the gloss paint on the top and tonight when I was going to put the finish coat on I noticed that the top has bowed significantly (1/2 to 3/4 inch)...

Becoming a Galoot #2: Jumping in the deep end

01-23-2014 04:49 AM by scruboak51 | 1 comment »

To the saw mill, or not to the saw mill; that was the question I left off at in the first post of this series. Saw Mill Cons Expensive $125 Hr, Plus $50 for blade breakage (Southern California Prices) Far Away – 1 hour drive in a truck that is on “hospice” A few weeks of waiting Saw Mill Pros Has done nice work for me in the past Would get all my cuts done with 0 effort on my part (just money) One thing I noticed was some of the cracks in this contain...

A Preview of something different for me

09-27-2009 04:44 AM by clieb91 | 2 comments »

Ok, So this coming week I will be married for 5 years (how time flies). It just happens that the traditional gift for a 5th anniversary is wood (How lucky!). I wanted to do something a little different and beyond what I have done before. After looking at various ideas on the web for small boxes to put something else in.. I found RunnerDucks small keepsake box. I thought this was a great idea and would hold the other gift well. So I decided to first make a prototype out of what else.. a 2×...

This is my first project. It started from wood salvaged from a small tree, walnut I believe, that a neighbor cut down.Just getting used to posting on here so sorry if the pics are weird. The scrap below the box is being used as my stain test It is still a work in progress and eventually will be used as a gift box for jewelry for my wife.Thanks for looking.

The case for hand planes

03-04-2008 11:27 PM by Shopsmithtom | 11 comments »

I took the opportunity, on my recent project, to use a Stanley 45 combination plane to do the edge beading (I think that’s what it’s called) instead of setting up my router or shaper. I’m trying to do more and more with hand tools as a way of connecting to the fundamentals of the hobby/skill/pastime/avocation. (whatever this really is called) I’m also, of course, doing it to keep telling myself that I’m not a collector, I’m a user. (Hello, my name is...

Commisions #3: Mirror Frame #3

05-27-2008 01:41 AM by teenagewoodworker | 9 comments »

Well over the last two days i have been able to really get some good solid work done on my mirror frames. first i was able to mill all the lumber to final width. then it was time to cut the piece. i don’t have a long miter bed with a stop block so i used double stick tape to hold the rough identical pieces together to give me exactly the same piece. the first picture is putting the tape on and the second is all the piece cut to final length. Then i cut the groove in th...
