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

152 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

245 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...

Around the Shop #21: Butcher Block restoration.

315 days ago by Don W | 20 comments »

Yesterday, on the way home from running some errands my wife and I stopped at a new local antique mall. The official opening hasn’t happened yet, but there was an open sign, so we pulled in. In a “fix it up yourself” section we found this butcher block top at an extremely reasonable price. The top itself is in really good shape. It’s got just enough cracks to give it a nice patina, without effecting the integrity and it’s a bit over 14” thick. The bi...

How-To Make Log Furniture #5: Waterfall Side Table

558 days ago by ScottShaeffer | 3 comments »

I had a butcher block glue up that I decided to not use for what I made it for (bar stool seats) so instead, I conceived an artistic idea for some side tables. Let me show you how I made them!

My Friend Named Roubo #2: Workbench Beginnings

623 days ago by BareFeet | 0 comments »

Its been a whirlwind of a Fall (and now Winter) and things seem to be changing quickly. I’ve gotten some shop time worked in here and there between my job and spending time with my wife and kids. My shop (aka- half of the garage) is quickly transforming as I continue to acquire tools. The next tool that I need to get into gear is my workbench. I last left you with the very early stages of the planning and assembly of the top. My top is essentially two slabs of butcher block table t...

My Friend Named Roubo #1: Thoughts & Design

732 days ago by BareFeet | 0 comments »

I’ve begun. After months and years of trolling the internets and wondering what (and when) I am going to build, I started today. Over the last 6 years since I first owned a home, I have acquired an abundance of tools. I’ve always had more tools than the average bear, however when you buy a home that’s a ‘fixer-up-er’ there are going to be MANY times when you don’t have the right tool and your father doesn’t either. I managed to get my hands on the...

My first Cutting board

827 days ago by wlojr | 1 comment »

I have been inspired by many cutting boards, that I have seen on LJ, I used some oak scraps that my father gave me and some walnut scraps I got from a cabinet shops discard bin, I cut the boards with my radial arm saw(no table saw yet) and then glued them up with titebond 3 glue, its the only glue Lowes had that said food safe, after they were good and solid about 2 hours later, I ran them through my planer a few times to get them to a uniform thickness. I then routed them with a roundove...

Cutting Board Disaster!

1492 days ago by thewoodwhisperer | 26 comments »

The Discovery: A few months ago, I woke up one morning, poured my coffee, and was incredibly disappointed to see that my cutting board exploded! OK so maybe it wasn’t all that violent but it was cupped like crazy and had a very large split. Upon further inspection, I noticed a bit of trapped water in the center of the underside of the board. Now the thing to remember about end grain cutting boards is that even after finishing, they will still soak up moisture like a sponge. So standing ...

006: pallet wood cutting board #4: rounding over, sanding, and finishing

1613 days ago by Gary Fixler | 12 comments »

I decided it would probably be boring to show each step from the previous ‘milling everything flat and square’ post, to the final board, so here’s the final board, all finished: It is 6-3/4”x8-5/8” and a little over 1.75” thick. Or, you know, about the size of the US hardcover edition of “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” though the book is a little less than an inch taller in the longest dimension. Note the butcher’s block c...
