mahogany bed

11-01-2010 04:12 PM by dub560 | 7 comments »

it’s my first time spraying tinted shellac and i think i love it very much. i over did it in some areas though making the bed a bit darker in some areas. i must say i’m starting to like analine dyes versus the pigments stains that home depot carries—you can really dial in the right color you’re after with each coat of stain

Woodworking Business #5: Consistent Quality and Guarantees

11-01-2010 03:05 PM by billb | 6 comments »

It’s obvious from reading the comments here that all of you are concerned with the quality of your work in addition to getting paid. I believe that consistently delivering quality work is essential to success. Cutting corners is never a good idea and will usually cost you more in the long run. My experience was that when I fully satisfied a customer they became a good salesperson for my work. Policy 4 – Consistently deliver the highest possible quality and make certain that the...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #151: More on Changes

11-01-2010 12:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I very much enjoyed reading your responses to my blog yesterday. You all brought up some excellent points that I want to respond to and I hope you don’t mind if I continue the discussion here. There were many good points made and I would love to talk about some of them. As Tom said – balancing the old practical with the new technical is something to think about, and has raised several questions around here since I have been here. A couple of months ago, the discussion was br...

Building My Work Shop #5: The First Rule of Assembling a Project

11-01-2010 10:10 AM by Crushgroovin | 4 comments »

Caleb is only 8 but he has caught on quick to the woodworking. If you ask him what you need to build a woodshop he will say #1 Buy more Clamps #2 Buy more Clamps #3 if you think you have enough clamps you probably need to buy more clamps! So I have a few clamps, obviously no where near as many as I might need. Before I started re designing my shop I stores my clamps on and around a exterior door that isn’t used. Now they are stored where ever there is space. Obviously this isn...

Good Evening LJ’s I want to dedicate this blog to my co-worker Beverly who is out for quite a while, Monday before last she went from work to emergency with severe stomach pains that Thursday she was diagnosed with cancer. What makes a person, a business, a church or a company excellent ? How do we define them as excellent ? What unit of success do we use? Is excellence lots of money, time, being on top of the world, or Just having it all ? Some define excellence as being a gift...

Oliver 232 restoration #1: Disassembly

11-01-2010 02:15 AM by MedicKen | 10 comments »

As some of you know I recently acquired an Oliver 232 table saw. The saw was built sometime between Feb and Sept 1953. It is 3hp 3ph and weighs in around 1200#. It was purchased through a local auction for the sum of $125. Today I began with the disassembly and cleaning. I removed the table, 200# gone right there. Luckily my weight lifting neighbor was home and gave me a hand removing it. After the top was off I began removing the motor, motor raising mechanism. The motor sits on a plate t...

heavy duty blades for treated thick stock and rough cut lumber

11-01-2010 01:29 AM by slashersaw | 3 comments »

Due to a lack of retailer options, I began making my own blades to handle the thick and rough lumber associated with framing barns, shops, decks, etc. Upon researching sawmill operations, I discovered their blades are heavy with oversized teeth to last through many sharpenings. Most of the blades you buy today for 10 and 12” saws don’t have longevity in mind. After the first sharpening you end up getting into the shoulder when you top grind the teeth.

Please visit his site.The wood is Mahogany. I’m not 100% sure what I am doing with it, but the end result will be donated to my local ...
