ScrollSaw Information and Resources #31: Staining Baltic Birch Plywood

06-21-2012 11:52 PM by jerrells | 5 comments »

OK this may be a really dumb question but here goes. Staining Baltic Birch Plywood. When you purchase it does it generally have some type of sealer on the surface. I just got finished cutting a fretwork clock out of baltic birch and staining it and it looks horrable. My only choice it to attempt to sand it and apply a different stain method. I generally get my wood from the local Rockler store but sometime purchase some from Lowes. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #26: Additional Tools to Accompany a Scrollsaw

05-06-2012 11:09 PM by jerrells | 3 comments »

I posted the forum topic here, and on other forums, and really did not get an answer. Perhaps it is not that easy to answer. Perhaps I misstated the question. Perhaps it depends on the type of scrollsawing one does (which in my case is mostly fretwork). Well after lots of conversation and thoughts I will attempt to answer my own question even if only for myself. In doing so I will make no mention of brands of tools but only types. First of all I think you will need tools to reduce stock to...

There will be an internal frame attached to cabinet 7, to support the sliding assembly for the cabinet. This shows the complete fixed portion of the cabinet. It will be the main support for the shell. This is the complete frame for the outer shell ...

LOL Sloan’s has instructions on how to cut and handle t...

Arts and Crafts Wedge and Strap Bed #2: Footboard

07-26-2013 04:48 PM by pintodeluxe | 6 comments »

Here is the bed project at hand…-----I added some through tenons to complete the front legs.-----With the legs complete, it was simply a matter of constructing a mortise and tenon frame. The grooves for the panels are 1/2” deep, while the stile tenons are 1-1/2” long for added strength. This extra tenon length also helps to register the stiles in postion during glueup. -----Next I temporarily clamp the panel behind the frame, to transfer the opening size to the panel. -...

Designing a Christmas Wreath #1: Initial Design

11-14-2014 09:20 PM by KomputerMan | 0 comments »

This is a picture of the wreath I built last year for the Boise Festival of Trees. Not bad for a first attempt at building a wreath, or in other words I thought it turned out pretty cool… Yeah… that’s my Daughter, she turned out pretty cool too!!! :) For the wreath being built this year I’m using EZInlays AmbersBear as the main focal point of the wreath hanger. Because it’s Christmas I decided to put a Santa Hat on the inlay too. I found this AWESOME piece...

Delta Mortiser 14-651 #14: Arts & Crafts Picture Frame - Very Rough

05-25-2011 12:45 PM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 1 comment »

Made my first project using the new Mortising Machine. It’s a rough Arts and Crafts style picture frame. Material is 1×3 pine which is part of why it’s pretty rough. I didn’t want to do a lot of glue clean-up so the only glue is on dowels that pin in each corner. The tenons fit pretty tight by themselves. I have an old map from 1897 of the city I live in that I wanted to frame. Besides the machine I tried some new techniques with some success. As usual I...
