TV Stand Completed

09-07-2010 05:43 AM by johnnymo | 2 comments »

Well this is what I did this Labor Day weekend. I finished up the TV Stand that I Started for a friend at work. These are the finished pics. I did screw up on the sides the first time, I forgot to account for the square top when I cut the sides and they ended up being a 1/2” too short! Nothing like re-setting up your machines to remake parts…especially after you’ve cleaned up!Here’s some pics of the assembled projectAnd here’s some pics of the finished projec...

Poly (?) Finish that just won't dry

09-07-2010 04:42 AM by OhhCrap | 3 comments »

Have a relative that has a problem. They have a bench seat, top is simple AC nicely edged, the box under the seat is cedar lined. They believe it has a Poly based finish. Exposed surfaces are nice and dry, but when you open the lid, the finish is still tacky, and I mean TACKY. Flies can get stuck to it, we’re talking duct tape sticky and it’s been like this for over year. How the heck does one go about fixing this? They have left the lid up for weeks on end to no avail.

Hello All, I took advantage of Labor Day to work on my tiny inlay boxes. I am almost done and they look like tiny boxes. I still have some sanding and finishing to do, but that can be done tomorrow. Tonight, I am going to watch the rest of the Boise St. vs. VA Tech game. Brian

Cherry Frames #1: After 1 Application of Danish Oil

09-07-2010 03:56 AM by Biscuit | 0 comments »

Here’s a little peak at my first real woodworking project: three matching cherry frames with walnut splines for my credentials. After four years at my current job I figured it was about time to personalize my office a bit. I started with a few boards of 4/4 rough cherry that I purchased from a small hardwood dealer in the area and some walnut cutoffs that he had lying around. After planing down the lumber I was a little disappointed that it wasn’t perfectly clear, but after w...

Workbench #4: Dry Fitting the Base

09-07-2010 03:37 AM by Clay Ortiz | 7 comments »

I know I said it would be a while but I just can’t stay away. My wife says I am obsessed and she is getting jealous. I have got to get this thing done before she kicks me out! I had to work today and didn’t think I would get a chance to get to do anything in the shop but luckily I did. I fitted half of the tenons for the stretchers yesterday so I was really itching to finish. The first thing I did was hit the water stones. Man, that pecan is rough on your tools. I am going to have...

Back in the shop and making sawdust, buying tools!! Fun stuff

09-07-2010 03:27 AM by Cato | 1 comment »

So been a long hot summer and really haven’t been in the shop much since June when I built a mantel. Yardwork, vacation, stuff, but mainly just not feeling it calling until the past couple of weeks the weather has started changing and I found myself wanting to get back into it. So building a new worktable with 2×6 dimensional lumber base and an ash top. Got a Delta T2 fence to mount on the table saw to replace the OEM one. Took up Woodcraft on their free shipping recent...

Picture Frames #1: its a start

09-07-2010 03:15 AM by Camper | 0 comments »

I had asked about a recommendation for what wood to use for these picture frames in another post . Finally got some walnut and started it this weekend. Started out with 2 3-4”-8’ boards from which I cut out 3 36” long pieces. I need to make 3 frames which are 12”x18” and around 1.5” wide. Figuring 12” was too short to plane, I decided 36” would be manageable size and each piece would give me one frame when I cut the ends with snipe off. Since...

Holtzapffel Workbench #1: My First Mortise

09-07-2010 02:08 AM by jcontract | 6 comments »

I’ll classify today as the first day of building the base for my bench. Beginning this weekend I tried a practice mortise, since I’ve never tried this before. I have to say that I find mortise and tenons a bit intimidating. I’ve seen the demonstrations of the pros, and how they fly through then with just a chisel, and thy’re perfect within a few minutes. Even the article I’m using to guide me through this one says, drill and chsile mortises are a little slow goi...
