Cherry bookshelf

I’ve been working on this project for a while now. Everything is solid cherry and the top two shelves are one board. That was a gamble but the boards seemed to be pretty stable so we’ll see how it looks in a couple years. This is my first project using cherry and i have to say, it smells awesome when cut! I’ve still got a couple more coats of finish to put on it before i can call it done and can post pictures in the projects section. Zac

Old Classroom Door Restoration Project

07-19-2009 12:40 PM by DrTebi | 8 comments »

- – - – - – - – -Update:I just realized I never posted pictures of the finished door. After reading a few books on finishing, I decided to use Linseed Oil, Shellac, and Wax. I like the fact that these products are all very “natural” and have been used for centuries. And I am really please with the results. After one application of Linseed Oil (boiled) I mixed the shellac myself (there is a place here in San Francisco called Sinopia Pigments that sells...

07-19-2009 07:42 AM by brukilla | 8 comments »

I got through designing my redwood burl tabletop end table. The sketchuo file is located here. I would like to hear some criticism on this, even though it is my first piece of furniture. I would also like to know if I have the inlay pieces set up correctly. I thought about mitered, but I thought it would look more distinct with darker end gran at the corners. I wouod also like to know if my approximations for the mortise & tenon joints are ok. Let me know… I also created ssome...

What a waste

07-19-2009 05:14 AM by Mely5862 | 19 comments »

July is a very hot month here. Although the rest of the year is very nice, the summers are extreme. I had been hoping to have time to work out in my garage but its nearly unbearable with temp. up to 114 and even hotter in the garage. I recently purchased a porable air conditioner and tried it out today. What a disappointment. It hardly made a difference and the air blew hot. I know many of you deal with very hot summers. Any suggestions? I don’t want to throw away anymore money at the ...
