Shaker Style End table #4: Glue ups. Just glue ups

03-08-2015 11:48 PM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

And maybe a Dutchman, too. Got the top over to the cleaned off (!!!) workbench. Worked on fitting the two breadboard edges to almost no gaps. Add some glue, clamp it down Until the gaps close up. Since this is a three board top, I used three 5/8” brads, in the center of each board. Set the top aside. Almost tripped over the Shop Cat He is looking a little digusted with me, I am interrupting his Mousing, Ok, top is out of the way for awhile. Took apart the base, and...

Rushing through the home repairs. #11: Dining room, almost check... Some shop time too!

08-19-2013 01:59 AM by dbhost | 2 comments »

Okay so the dining room remodel is almost done. The walls and ceiling are painted. The new chandelier is on back order, so that will have to wait, and I need to finish the paint on the moldings tomorrow, but aside from that, the dining room can be referred to as DONE… Steps done this weekend Apply 2nd coat of paint to the 2 walls that already had the initial coat, apply 2 coats of paint to the remaining wall… Let paint dry, mask off, sand any irregularities from, and pain...

Display Mirror - Rescued Wood #1: The Set-up

04-07-2009 01:39 PM by PG_Zac | 2 comments »

This project is already completed, but there is a long story to go with it. I decided to split it into blog episodes for easier handling as I know many of you can’t afford to sit with ONE posting for more than 10 minutes. A couple of years ago I moved to a new village and found (to my delight) that I have access to a lot of wood of various species in log form. Within a radius of 30 kilometers there are plenty of old dead-stands, dead-falls, and the local tree feller is happy to let ...

Craftsman Quilt Rack (x3) #3: Almost done with finish sanding

06-24-2009 05:55 PM by Bret | 3 comments »

Tonight I’ve got a friend who’s going to help me decide whether this is ready for finishing or not. I’ve sanded the heck out of it with my RO sander at 150 and 180 grit and am going over it all at 180 tonight by hand to try to get out any remaining scratches. I decided to make the pegs or keys out of wenge to add a bit of contrast and (I hope) compliment the inlay. I’m also going over the pegs tonight with wood filler before finish sanding them tomorrow. Then it&...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1087: Those In-Between Times

07-20-2013 11:44 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

This week has seemed strange. I have been tying up a lot of loose ends, organizing and finishing up many things that have been hanging for a while. All bits and pieces. It seems that I have been really busy, but have little to talk about or to show here. I suppose that happens though, as every day can’t be remarkable. By definition, the term remarkable means worthy of notice, unusual or extraordinary. I can’t really say that anything here has been that. Just busy day-to-...

Make your own Home-Made Stain. This is nothing more than Steel Wool and Vinegar, yet the colors are amazing. Different wood creates different colors as you can see from the pictures. Pictures added Below!

First Shop #4: Plans for the New Year! (Purchase Plan)

12-29-2007 02:25 AM by YooperCasey | 5 comments »

A new year is almost upon us and I’m going to tell you folks about my tool purchase plans for this year and see if I can get some good advice. Also, as a chance to pat myself on the back, today is my one year anniversary of quitting smoking! If I would have saved what I spent for cigarettes if I would have smoked, I would have $3650 to purchase a woodshop with. Then it’d be all Festool and Gold! The first task I had was deciding what major tools I would want. I’ve manage...

durable wood for flooring

05-07-2013 09:39 PM by you | 4 comments »

Disappointed with perennial wood but need a durable product to go on other porches that will not buckle nor rot, and can be painted with solid wood stain. Porch is over garage and other living space. Water proof membrane under the flooring and sleepers.

This morning I find that I’m avoiding the trip down to the wood shop. What lies behind this procrastination, I ask myself. Could it be that I am on the verge of tackling a new level of skill but do not yet know what that might be? Or perhaps it is that the little projects that I have started are not meeting my expectations and a little self-doubt has slipped into my being? The motivation behind inaction might also lie in still waiting for the image of that summer contest project, so...
