... I didn’t get to work on my project today. But I was able to pay it a visit anyway. The darker green is the bracket that I painted with Rust-o-lium. The color is called Verde Green with a “Hammered” finish. It looks nice but it is not a perfect match to the original Unisaw color. The color changes slightly depending on the light. Sometimes it looks like a good match, sometimes not.
I am working on the cradle project and have started to think of finishes. What are the best methods that will bring out the beautiful color of the walnut and have the finish last for years to come? I appreciate any and all suggestions, if you could include pictures of walnut pieces you have finished that would be great. Thanks
Hello again. As happy as I was yesterday thinking I got some good work done. When I got to work this morning thinking about my project I realized I had wasted a weekend. In this photo look at the pencil mark and the bottom You will see that the line is a little bit higher in the back than the front. It is possible to make this dresser work at this point in the project but I would always be working around this problem. And I also want the drawer divider/blade to be flush against the bot...

I currently have an old craftsman table saw. The saw itself works fine, it’s the table that is not very good. The center table seems ok, the “extensions” on either side are bent, and I’m afraid that the fence might not be straight either. Here’s what I want to do: tear the saw down to just the mechanics and the center table. Build a cabinet for it, with dust collection (which is absent on the current one), bigger surface for ripping sheets, and a longer fence. An...
Well, bringing home a load of lumber made me realize that I need some organization for everything that has to fit in it. It is a 2 car garage that needs to fit my wife’s van, about 750 bdft of wood now, workbench, and all the tools(TS, BS, jointer, planer, sander, and all my handtools). It will be similar to this: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/21309 but bigger. I started it by using a lot of random S4S oak off of a criagslist buy to build a french cleat system on one 20’ long...
0-60 Magazine offered a PDF download for plans for an arcade racing cabinet: http://www.0-60mag.com/online/?p=18342 Since I already have a regular arcade cabinet this seemed like another great thing to add to my basement. Unfortunately, the layout in the PDF is not to my liking and the font for the dimensions is horrible. The hood is also too large to get down my stairs, so I made some modifications and built it in Sketchup. It’s designed for a specific wheel,...
Well, I finally got a workshop and moved all of my tools to their new home. I was lucky enough to find a very nice industrial desk and credenza on craigslist (FOR FREE) to use for storage and assembly. I picked up some rubber drawer liners to keep things from sliding around, and I really wish that they came sized to fit. I was cutting the liners to fit their respective drawers and was soon reminded that it’s usually the small things that bite ya. With ALLLLL of the VERY STUPID things th...
The absolute worst time to find out you’ve made a mistake is while the glue is drying. So this part focuses strongly on the importance of a dry assembly, which I consider to be an essential part of the glue up process. By the end we’ll have a partially glue-up entertainment center. A few of the topics covered in this part: Gluing trim pieces. Using biscuits. Clamping strategies. Using a wood filler to hide miter flaws. Cutting the big bevels on the top and bottom trim. Sa...
