Finishing Process of Interest #1: Chemical Ebonizing

01-07-2015 01:36 PM by pjones46 | 4 comments »

A while back, I put together a set of links of random finishing topics which I posted in my blog, called Finishing Tips #5: Finishing tips #5. One of the links listed coved the topic of Chemical-Ebonizing as I saw an interest from some concerning the procedure, so this is the time to single out that process. This process does not use dye, ink or paint, and can be carried out quite easily. As a matter of formality follow proper safety precautions such as wearing safety glasses, hand prot...

Table saw blade hard to go down????

01-27-2016 02:30 PM by Bob Rodrigues | 4 comments »

I have a General 50-200r model table saw. Lowering the blade is a chore becuase it feels like its binding. I’ve squirt some liquid wrench & WD40 on the worm drive screws & worked it up & down. It’s gotten better but there is still an issue. Wondering if anyone else is having this issue & what’s a good lubricant to use on these gears as well? Also what would be a good cleaner to clean the gears with as well? Thanks all.

Making Wooden Flowers #2: Flattening the Shavings

03-23-2014 09:38 PM by Ronbrush | 4 comments »

Step Two – Flatten the Shavings The shavings need to be flat so they are usable for flower making. This is easily done by soaking the shavings in a container of water for ten minutes or more. The shavings will still be curled but running a hot iron on the shaving as it is unrolled will evaporate the water and leave a flattened strip of paper-like wood. Please don’t use the iron that you use for ironing clothes and other fabrics! The process described here is not kind to the iron as y...

Life happenings #1: What a load

08-04-2016 02:02 PM by JimDaddyO | 3 comments »

Making use of things other people have no use for. There is a sawmill about an hour away from me. It is run by some Mennonites and they work hard making harvesting and milling logs into what we are all here for. Beautiful boards and timbers with which we use to make our projects. But there is a lot of the tree that is just not useful for sale for this purpose. What to do with the waste? Well in this instance, I heat my home with it. All the slab wood and off cuts are offered up for s...

Tree growth "vortex"

06-13-2011 08:13 AM by tswoodwizard | 3 comments »

OK, maybe all of my wood-tec type friends out on LJ,s can help me figure this out. I’ve allways been fascinated with the dynamics of curing and drying wood after the harvesting process. One to overcome is of cource the growth vortex that occures in some species and not in others. One question I have is this, Is there a right-hand vortex that occures above the equator as opposed to a left hand one bellow the equator? When a tree wiggles and struggles up out of the grownd, It also “...

"Automaton" #3: Arms and hands

01-07-2012 08:29 AM by mpounders | 3 comments »

A little more progress on this. The left hand is just a fist that is part of the arm, while the right hand is a separate piece carved to look like he is snapping his fingers. The arms will be doweled and glued to the body before shaping them further. I glue them on one at a time and use a bit of rubber as a clamp. I’m using wire brads as the hinge pins for all the joints. I use CA glue to strengthen the areas around the holes that these pins go through. The head and the right hand a...
