Japanese Garden Bench #5: Finishing Up

1964 days ago by newTim | 4 comments »

By popular demand. ;) So here’s the finished project with the first coat of stain. I made some modifications to the original plans one of which is the seat height. At 6’5” it is perfect for me, but about an 1” too tall for my wife who’s about 5’8”. The bench is very sturdy and relatively light weight since it is made out of redwood. I imagine it would be much heavier if I had used oak. Like I said before, this was a fun project and not too diffi...

Small Cabinet #10: Got the raised panels done today.

1964 days ago by Betsy | 5 comments »

I took a vacation day from work today and spent a glorious day in the shop with a side trip to the lumber yard. Got quite a lot done on the cabinets. Took the door panels out of the clamps, cleaned them up, got them sized to fit and then routed them. They are not perfect, but I think I did OK. This next shot is a little closer up – you can see I don’t have the parts quite lined up for the shot – but they do fit and are flat to boot! I also did some work on the...

Walnut TV Stand

1964 days ago by Kevin Depies | 5 comments »

Hello, this is my first post on LJ’s! Here is the current project I am working on – a TV stand / entertainment center… whatever you want to call it : ) I’m a little further along than these photos, which were taken a couple weeks ago. This is basically it though, minus an adjustable shelf for the opening in the middle and some handles for the doors, both of which are made now. I am looking for ideas on what type of finish to use on this project as finish...

Juniper Log Furniture : Floor Lamp #1: Wicked Floor Lamp, what ribbon like movement

1964 days ago by Tim & Candy Hicks | 3 comments »

Nothing like having numerous projects to work on This lamp is very ribbon like; really flat but with lots of movement. It does have a small burl. The base will be cut down to size which will also shorten the lamp so that it is not so tall. We will scribe fit the lamp limb to fit the base. I have started sanding the limb and my husband has been working on the base.

Decorative wood panels - fonts

1964 days ago by BeaverTools | 1 comment »

Hello all. I currently also attend college for Graphic Design. For my illustration and typography classes I’m working on a project where i’ve picked 4 of my favorite typefaces, then illustrated a really simple design for each. Each typeface and illustration is laid out on a 8.5×8.5 in piece of Syberian Elm that’s been planed down to under 1/4 inch thick. I did each design in photoshop, then I’m printing the design out and transferring it onto the piece of wo...

Burled Juniper Log Floor Lamp #2: Ready to drill holes

1964 days ago by Tim & Candy Hicks | 6 comments »

I got the limb 100% sanded, my husband is inlaying turquoise in the base, next we will drill the holes for the cord. The dark spot you can see on the base is where we applied sanding sealer, there is a bit of rot so this helps harden the wood and it also keeps the glue from staining the wood when we inlay the turquoise.

Twisted Coffee Table Base #6: Ready to Spray the Finish

1964 days ago by Tim & Candy Hicks | 2 comments »

Here is the larger coffee table base. Ready to be sprayed. We will spray them with Satin Polycrylic and most likely have to flip it upside down and spray the bottome with couple of coats and when that is dry, flip it back over and do the top part.
