Part 2 - The Bed is Finished #1: Some early pictures

03-30-2010 05:59 AM by davidroberts | 3 comments »

The title is a little misleading. The bed is actually refinished. This was a project 2 years in the making. A neighbor grew tired of her grandmothers bed set sitting on her back porch and offered it to me two summers ago. Her idea was I would refinish it for my then 13 year old daughter. It was made sometime before 1936 and is a nice old piece, well made and in need of some TLC. I jumped at the chance to hone my finishing/refinishing skills, since I don’t have any to speak of. Wh...

Wood Related #1: Updated Lumber Rack Projects !!

03-30-2010 05:49 AM by Michael Hacker | 6 comments »

I have moved.. and moved a considerable amount of WOOD! I have updated my lumber rack projects with new photos of the current racks. My new shop is the entire basement, and to say its bigger than my last basement shop is an understatement. I have four times the space! and at least 88” of height between my floor mats and floor joists! I have repacked the racks and have collected EVEN MORE WOOD! You see my new house was built in 1918, and the basement had a few excellent resource...

High School Woodworkers in Texas, Do You Measure Up?

03-30-2010 05:04 AM by Pimzedd | 8 comments »

If you saw my project entry, you know I said I would post more photos of the woodworking projects that were entered in the Texas SkillsUSA Skills and Leadership conference this past week. There were in excess of 200 projects entered. All had to compete at a district level and receive a blue ribbon at that level to advance to state. While looking at the primary project in the photo, you can see some of the many other projects that were entered. Here are some of the examples of what I th...

Modern end table #1: Start of a modern end table

03-30-2010 04:39 AM by doorslammer | 2 comments »

Here’s the start of my latest project. It’s a take on a modern end table. This is my own design but is definitely influenced by the stuff I’ve been looking at and been interested in lately. As usual, I’m going with walnut and using some cherry accents. I started by milling my stock to dimension and making some bridle joints to form the legs. I formed the bridle joint by using my home made tennoning jig and band saw. Later I added a square cherry peg. ...

School Auditorium Podium/Lectern

03-30-2010 04:18 AM by tooldad | 1 comment »

My woodworking classes have been asked by school administration to build a podium for the new middle school that the district where I work is opening for next school year. I would like to know if there are any ideas besides locking casters for a wheel system that can lock up for use and lock down for transport. The front wheels (audience side) will be not have to move, it is just the back casters/wheels (speaker side) that would need to lock or raise up when in use. I am looking for more...

Unisaw Torsion Box Fence Table #5: 7 coats of polyurethane and counting.....

03-30-2010 01:51 AM by Ger21 | 1 comment »

The day after my last post, I routed the rabbitt around the edge, and glued in the Bubinga border. I used a block plane and scraper to get it even with the rest of the top. I gave up on sanding out the tool marks from the surfacing operation, thinking the polyurethane would make them disappear. Almost, but not quite. From what I’ve seen, it appears that the epoxy didn’t actually seal the end grain, it just ran right through it. I applied the first coat of polyurethane very ...
