Adventures with Wax #2: Time lapse - Melting Wax

132 days ago by PAJA | 2 comments »

My second grease box was a gift to a friend. He’s an avid fly fisherman and said he could use the wax for “dubbing”. Sweet, yet another use for the beloved grease box. I will have to look into this use and find some recipes. Any ideas or leads? I made a short video of filling his box with wax… I tried messing around with my smartphone and making a time lapse of the wax melting. I will try and load a better quality video later. Only cell service at the time....

Adventures with Wax #1: Wood Butter (What you got in your box?)

144 days ago by PAJA | 5 comments »

I recently made my first grease box. I’m sure it won’t be the last version of it, but it’s a start. I’m not alone in the “Could’a, should’a, would’a” thoughts as a project comes to a close. Size, shape, wood choice, overall design, etc. You have to start somewhere before you get it right. The next decision…What to put in it? Wood butter, spoon oil, grease, paste, wax, whatever you want to call it. Something must go in there...

Restoring An Old Butcher Block

237 days ago by JayG46 | 3 comments »

I’m home for Christmas and naturally, my mom gave me a project to keep me busy. Since it was woodworking related, I was more than happy to take it on. About thirty years ago, my parents bought a maple butcher block from a restaurant supply store. It has been a part of their kitchen ever since and has held up pretty well, all things considered. But over time, it has become a little grimy it was definitely time for a serious refinishing. We don’t have a powered sander here, so...

I have noticed that there is a increased demand for beeswax finishes so I wanted to share my experience and knowledge with you.

Whistle Me This #1: Basic Whistle

778 days ago by PurpLev | 13 comments »

I’ve decided to start a new series about whistles after my first attempt which was really fun and was posted here and about which this blog is about: I wanted to make a whistle for quite some time now, but just never gotten to it. I also knew I would like to involve my daughter in the making of… which worked out great! Everything used (material wise) for this project was from the cutoff bin (ok, I don’t have an actual bin – it’s just pieces that were left o...

Homemade (DIY) BeesWax

1227 days ago by dedalo | 13 comments »

I’m putting together my first cutting board, within this projext I had doubts about finishing … So far, I used cooking oil for finishing wood for cooking (food contact). Reading the blogs (here :D), in many places do not recommend this because the cooking oil (vegetable) rot, making odor, or is likely to raise small fungi or microorganisms, which is not advisable to these applications … That’s how I came across the beeswax, in other places is a cream based wax that is sold specifically ...
