General thoughts #2: My furniture style preference

01-13-2014 01:32 PM by Ottacat | 2 comments »

Growing up I was not a fan of wood. At our house, cottage and neighbor’s houses, wooden furniture consisted mainly of two kinds. First was a generic bland, almost grainless medium brown McWood type of furniture. The typical coffee or end table you’d get from a department store. The second type was oak. Oak furniture, particularly mission style seemed to be all over the place. Some people like oak, I’ve never been a fan. Between the two I felt wood was a material of the pa...

Decided to wait on the lathe :)

01-19-2009 04:32 AM by twig | 5 comments »

I’ve thought about this a lot and I decided that I am not quite ready to work with a lathe yet. I’ve only been at this wood working thing half a year now, and I always want to run before I learn to crawl, lol, so I decided to hold off and get more comfortable with the wood and the tools I have and I will get a lathe and nice tools for it when I am more experienced and have more confidence. I ended up getting a band saw and a belt/disc sander that will help me a lot in my growi...

So, dig through the tool boxes, find the right sized wrench, and tilting table tilts no more. Got the front and backs drilled, time for som...

Working with recycled timber #6: TJB Woodie and Jessie Picture frame

Background: Outfits: We all went to a birthday party for number one son Adam’s son Rocky, it was a cowboy theme so that explains the outfits in the post. The Frame: The picture frame was inspired by Toby’s interest in “rustic” use of recycled timber. The timber: The timber used is Oregon/Douglas Fir and was in its previous life ...

So what I’m asking is if anyone has any suggestions for tours, architectural interests, shops, museums, or woodworking stores I should see while i’m there.I’ve got a rental car, so transport should...

Stanley Miter Box Restoration #2: Rust be Gone

04-18-2013 03:10 PM by ToddMKS | 1 comment »

I have taken the handle off the saw, hit it with a wire brush to remove any loose rust, and coated it with Navel Jelly. This is the first time I have used it and I have to say I like it alot. I have to give the saw one more coat to remove any stubborn rust left. Then I will start wet sanding it. Thanks for looking and please leave a comment with any advice you my have since this is my first saw rehab. Thanks again.
