Finishing #1: Finding a stickley finish

1543 days ago by brianl | 5 comments »

I have been working on a pair of nightstands for a while now and I’ve been trying to sort out what stain to use on them. They are quartersawn white oak and reproduction Stickleys so I wanted a nice older look. I started digging around in magazines, books, online, etc… and I found some great resources – like Captain Skully's forum post. Unfortunately, viewing something over the net always makes it appear a bit “off” to me. So I decided that I needed to prototy...

Medicine Cabinet Part ?? #1: Not quite chronological process

1543 days ago by Blinky | 0 comments »

I finally have the door looking more and more like a door. I’m sure I’m going about this bass-ackwards, but I’m beginning to feel happy about the results.I’ve gone from this: TO THIS for routing the profiles, I used Whiteside 6001 matched pair rail & stile bits. So next i will cut and assemble the box/carcase, so it will fit the glass shelves. Then I will trim down the door stiles to fit that size, with about 1/2” on both sides and the top as ...

Asian Arts & Crafts Night Stand #1: Catching up...

1547 days ago by azwoodman | 9 comments »

So I’ve been working on this project since January. Its been a really fun and very educational experience. There have been lots of “firsts.” This semester I have been taking a Woodworking Class at my local community college. Although the class isn’t really geared toward any particular set of woodworking skills it has given me an opportunity to build a project under the supervision of a more “seasoned” woodworker. When the class began we were instruct...

Time to build a medicine cabinet.

1550 days ago by Blinky | 3 comments »

I’m hoping to get a medicine cabinet built in very near future. I have the design in my head. Bought an old medicine cabinet with a really nice etched mirror & beveled glass. Then found another one, bigger.Anyway, I’m thinking I’ll build the door around the mirror size, & the cabinet to fit the door size. It will be built flush against wall above sink, with simple moulding that matches the woodwork throughout the house. I wish I knew Sketchup better. It’...

Quarter Sawn White Oak

1564 days ago by sandhill | 8 comments »

Well I am starting a new project and would like some input. After seeing to price of QSWO I was shocked to find the cost of the bed and rails made from Quarter Sawn White Oak came to right around a thousand dollars 8.50 A board foot. I can see using it on the legs and back rails that show but is that what everyone uses? Is 8.50 over priced? I thought it would be closer to 3.90 to 4.25 per BFT.

Wood Gear Clock

1576 days ago by HighRockWoodworking | 10 comments »

I have always had a fascination with how things work. As a kid I drove my parents’ crazy taking things apart but it was part of learning. Even today I will look at something a wonder how it was made or how it works. For most things I believe that if someone else can do it then so can I, now I am not saying that I am smarter than anyone else, I believe for the most part that all of us can figure most things out if we try. Around a year ago I was looking at a pendulum clock, I have always...
