Selling Serving Boards at Juried Show

01-06-2014 01:44 PM by prospector45 | 8 comments »

What a journey of four weeks from early Nov to first weekend of Dec. My bride and I had just left one of my retailers without a check. Sad Day. Now we had to determine what is the best way to sell the serving/cutting boards and bookmarks. Sondra, my bride, on the travel home was searching on the phone for shows in December. There were two the first weekend of December. One in Wooster, about 5 years continuity; one in Akron, 35 years of continuity with over 100+ vendors, two booths remain...

Beall Polishing System #3: It does polish wood

01-04-2014 01:46 PM by PASs | 3 comments »

I was talking about sanding mops and other things and only referenced that I’d polished things with it. On all these pieces my finishing regime is the same: 1. Sanded to 320 grit. I don’t have anything finer that I care to use on a piece that’s going to be polished, and I’ve found that 320 grit seems to be perfect for getting a smooth finish. (Side note: I’ve polished some unsanded surfaces. It doesn’t smooth them, but it will polish the high spots. )...

Beall Polishing System #2: Sanding mops

01-03-2014 06:21 AM by PASs | 6 comments »

Since the motor mandrel with the Beall system takes a 3/8” bolt I’ve made several sanding mops.First was a 320 grit for finish sanding in general. That worked well enough so I made a couple in 220 grit, a thick one and a thin one. This past week I started making a mass production of challenge coin holders and decided I needed to up the game on the sanding mop. I wanted to sand the 2 1/2 inch wide holders in one pass. So I needed a sanding mop at least 3 inches wide. I looked...

Education and torment #1: Canary wood Box

12-15-2013 06:36 PM by GeneR | 0 comments »

The box is 4” square and made from canary wood and walnut, with a birdseye maple and walnut top. This started as an idea for the wifes Christmas present and grew to a little monster. I first decided on the box size being determined buy the length and thickness of the piece of canary wood. the piece was about 28 in long 4 1/2” wide and 1/2” thick so 4” square gave me some screw up room. At this time I figured I would use a 1/4” piece of plywood for the bo...

oak box #10: coat of wet finish

12-06-2013 03:15 AM by Dan'um Style | 6 comments »

Sanded this one to 150 grit and figured a good wet coat of lacquer might bring out the grain a bit. The rosewood and turquoise together for the photo. Will glue last. The turquoise is from eBay China. Fun stuff.

12-03-2013 02:05 AM by PASs | 10 comments »

I got a Beall system a few years ago.I started with the 3 circular pads.I liked it so much I also got the 3 polishing balls to do inside bowls.I also got an old motor for $2.00 at a garage sale so I could have a dedicated polishing setup.The motor is plugged in to an outlet box under the end of the bench. The receptacle it’s plugged into is controlled by a switch also under the end of the bench. The other receptacle is unswitched for plugging the other equipment in when needed. The outl...
