Step Stool #1: Starting from Scratch

2237 days ago by Eric | 5 comments »

Today I had my first real shop time since Mothers Day. I finished my wife’s box just in time to give it to her, but I still hadn’t put any finish on it. So today I started by putting on the first coat of oil/varnish/mineral spirits. Once I did that, I figured I’d start something new. I had no idea what I’d do. It was a good feeling, one of anticipation. I decided that I wanted to take a little break from the kempas I’d been working with since the beginning of ...

Greene inspired Night Stand #15: Blacker indent summary - Lots of sanding on this detail

2237 days ago by ChicoWoodnut | 13 comments »

I decided to summarize the Blacker Indent detail. I don’t own a belt sander so I did this all by hand. I got a lot faster after the first couple. First I cut the indent detail using a ramped jig.

I sanded the edge up to the lines with 150 and a ...

We have been busy

2238 days ago by TheKingsTreasures | 2 comments »

I haven’t posted here in a while but we have been busy. Christmas was a really busy time, we had a lot of sign orders for gifts. Now that the weather is nicer we have been getting out a lot more projects and coming up with more ideas. The orders are coming in, just enough to keep us busy but not stressed. I am enjoying the challenge. When the orders stop I have some ideas of my own that I would like to try. I look forward to this summer and all the summer time projects.

What Is It #7

2238 days ago by lew | 5 comments »

Since Odie isn’t posting any more of his stuff, thought I might post another one- Yes, Charlie, it’s a jig. It is NOT a Christmas Tree ornament, a whirly jig for the Jolly Green Giant or scraps sitting on a jointer. Lew

Carbide Tipped Saw Blades

2239 days ago by gay | 7 comments »

We use Carbide Tipped Saw Blades for our wood veneer edgebanding cutting machines. The blades cost $170.00 each.Some of our blades have lost the Carbide on the tips, and our sharpening company says that they cannot sharpen them. So they are not able to be used. Does anyone know of a company that can replace the carbide on saw blades? and… What would the process be called? Thanks!

Insetting an inlay on a dining table

2239 days ago by Skip | 15 comments »

Please don’t be too critical on this one. This was my first video and also my first attempt to inset an inlay. I had a lot of hours in this table and was very nervous. You may ask, “Why the inlay”. I just wanted an accent. - – Skip – -
