Going Galoot #5: I came, I saw . . . . . .

03-28-2014 02:14 AM by JayT | 16 comments »

Shop’s Log: March 27, 2014 Part of going galoot involves finding quality hand tools. While there are now some manufacturers making high quality hand tools (Lie-Nielsen or Lee Valley/Veritas, for instance) there are also a tremendous amount of vintage tools that make great users if you are willing to put in a little work. I have refurbished squares, adjustable bevels and a ton of hand planes, but was now ready to move on to another vital tool for the galoot ….... hand saws. ...

Spalters Inc. #9: STM vs xylindein: STM WINS!

Hi guys. So, to sum it up, this is Chlorociboria, a.k.a. “the mean tiny hulk”: Making nice things to the wood it lives into (right) because of this pigment, the xylindein: Which response to light in the visible spectrum looks like this: And whose picture I was (almost certainly) the first to ever take with a Scanning Tunelling Microscope.Say hello to my little friend: Now how cool is that? :)

Spalters Inc. #8: fast-extracted xylindein

01-20-2012 01:15 AM by Sodabowski | 13 comments »

Hi guys, So in an effort to gear up my lab stuff, I recently bought a cheap peristaltic pump on ebay to help extract xylindein faster. Relying on gravity sure works, but it’s damn slow. So I filled up a funnel with xylindein-stained sawdust, connected the output to the pump, set the other end of the pump above the funnel for a closed-loop circuit of sorts, dropped enough acetone to soak all the sawdust, and fired the pump for a few minutes. Wow, I gotta tell you, this modus operandi ...

Machinist Toolcart #4: Gluing up the Carcass

06-22-2011 04:03 PM by PurpLev | 8 comments »

Had another quick chance for some shop time and used that to glue together the fitted carcass. I didn’t want to deal with the glueup the day before (after fitting the dividers) as I knew I would need a peace of mind and ample time to do the glueup properly and not rush through it. And so, I cleared the workbench from all the ‘things’ that always seem to end up on it (how is that always happening?!?) to have use of it’s full length (barely enough) and laid down the c...

Jellyfish Table #5: Dying the top BLUE and spraying the lacquer

08-14-2009 11:19 PM by Blake | 31 comments »

A friend of mine has a cabinet shop with a spray booth and was nice enough to let me play in it. These photos were all taken in his shop. Here is one of the samples we tried on a test piece. This is aniline die dissolved in alcohol. WOW, I really like the color! We used his Festool sander for the final sanding. I had to stir the dye for over an hour. On goes the die: Sanding in between coats of sanding sealer and lacquer: Er...

"Savage Semblance of Colors" --by RusticWoodArt

07-17-2007 01:51 PM by frank | 8 comments »

Savage Semblance of Colors ....and for from where-all comes beauty, as i am extolled amongst the sweetened background of your desire, while coming forth into the arena of eye as i, so that in this place of savage semblance of colors i give thanks…. And so I thought I would take a lazy morning stroll down the paths of close to home today, before I enter into the toiling of be-grimed striving to make work a place of play. So the invitations have now been sent out, for any and all t...
