The Marathon: What I learned about refinishing my trash/treasures furniture (My rehabbing journey on

04-01-2014 12:52 AM by DocSavage45 | 16 comments »

I’m joining the guys who commented on rehabbing my chair. I probably will not rehab for money,because I really want to make what is in my imagination right now. LOL! I use the word marathon in this personal journey (nightmare) as opposed to finishing a race as the metaphor for my unexpected struggles. My Sofa was pretty easy, and more of a mechanical fix. I had also put a touch up water borne stain on the sofa frame. This success made me overconfident and un-expectant. LOL!It’s been almos...

"The End!" An office chair rehab nightmare( journey?)

03-26-2014 01:38 AM by DocSavage45 | 30 comments »

I am posting this because I said I would. It has taken much longer than expected, and it is not to my expectations when I started. It’s a nicely designed chair. I hadn’t sat in it…LOL! It’s going to be my desk chair for the desk to be posted when ever I stop screwing up the finish of the desk top. When it was finished today I sat in it. The back is straight and quite uncomfortable. SIGH! This is a chair I picked up many years ago. I liked the style. A poor man&...

Woodworking on antique enamel top table

They had all rusted out and needed replacing. Problem was, they were bent metal and getting them made was impossible. So, ingenuity was called for. I bought 1” metal conduit from the home center along with some gliders for the bottoms and duplicated the wooden blocks that secured the original le...

Corner Inlay Table #2: Dry fit

11-26-2010 06:05 PM by Rick | 0 comments »

The first dry fit showed some work needed on the tenons. I first cut them a shade long, even though I thought I’d left some room for glue. SO – that means I didn’t get the mortises as deep as I’d planned. But it was just the smallest of adjustments there. I also found that the top of the legs and apron weren’t flush, so again a couple adjustments. But with that work done, and another dry fit to see how it’s starting to come together, it might end ...

Extremely Average #16: I Will Continue To Practice

01-18-2010 03:40 AM by Ecocandle | 8 comments »

What drives your woodworking? I just want to be great at it. I have no idea if I will make furniture, turn bowls, chisel sculptures, or build tiny pieces of art. Each time I see something beautiful that is what I want to do. Woodworking has so many paths. It is easy to recognize that dabbling in everything will lead to a mastery of nothing. The importance of focus keeps me on my path of discovery. When the temptation to stray pokes its head out of a magazine article, I give it ...
