Violin Kit #6: Putting finish on

04-23-2018 11:12 PM by Dave Rutan | 7 comments »

Warning. Appalling methods below I finall got to the point where I feel I’ve finished the finish on this kit violin. I used water base mahogany stain and water base polyurethane. Purists will definitely not approve. The fiddle looks aniquey and old to me which is sort of what I wanted. One of the things I’m counting on with this finish is that the polyurethane will yellow over time. This should improve the look. Plus the wood should darken a little bit. The wood for the kit wasn’t the be...

$10 HVLP Sprayer that WORKS!

04-23-2018 02:43 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 2 comments »

I have been playing with spraying projects lately. I like the look of a sprayed finish and enjoy it more. Cans of sprayed finish can be very expensive though over time. I happened to find an HVLP sprayer at the local HF and decided to give it a try. Surprisingly it worked, and well at that. Check out the video and subscribe to see how it works. View on YouTube

Bath Stool #6: Saddle

04-23-2018 02:37 PM by Diego Cassels | 3 comments »

Well this was a great idea, I made lots of design errors that I had to fix with little adjustments. All of this could have been avoided if I had followed the original plans!! So don´t make the same mistakes I made!! I´m very happy with the final result. Here I just made a straight mortise and it all went fine. I repeated the same for the other leg.

Flood Recovery - Camp kitchen conversion #1: Building the orignal camp "kitchen"

04-23-2018 01:37 PM by FreddieMac | 3 comments »

So back in October of 2016 while we were recovering from the flood, my wife and I needed to get back into our house. We hated to live in a construction zone with 4 kids, but imposing on family for months was just not cutting it. So I decided to live in our RV at our house and work as many hours after work on stuff as I could. We decide that we needed one bathroom, the kitchen and floors to move back into the house. So I had 3 weeks to get it all done. We arranged for someone to come in and do...

Joinery Bench #17: Getting around to get the 4"x6" legs in order

04-23-2018 04:05 AM by Holbs | 0 comments »

Back at it… dimensioned the 4”x6” legs and feet. Hand cut tenons (practice, practice, practice). Initially, tried the Veritas tenon saw at 12 TPI but it struggled through the massive depth. Pulled out a backsaw I cleaned up and tried it out. Horrible long time cuts! Of course, it probably has not been sharpened in 50 years…so out comes the saw files. Jointed, filed and sharpened with a 8° negative rake at 10 TPI. Now, cuts through like butter. So now the tenon...

Please feel free to provide any comments, critiques, suggestions, helpful hints, etc. as you see fit. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. With everything painted and a few new components ordered/delivered, I was able to start reassembly. Overall, reassembly went rather smoothly, with ...

Wood Defect and Damage Repair #1: Using Epoxy Putty for Defect Repair

04-23-2018 02:04 AM by Rich | 10 comments »

When replying to posts about repairing defects or other voids in wood, I often suggest using epoxy putty. The problem with that is that unless someone has used epoxy putty before, it can seem intimidating. It’s really very simple to use, and once you play around with it a little, you’ll find yourself using it more and more. It’s also very durable and can stand up to wear and moisture. Epoxy putty comes in a stick and is made up of two parts, as shown below. Think of i...
