Question about finish

09-18-2010 02:19 PM by Tim Homoya | 4 comments »

I have sold my cedar table. I used an indoor/outdoor spar urethane on it. I believe three coats. I have always kept it indoors, they use it outdoors and after this spring and summer I see greying around edges and in spots. What is the best finish I can use to keep the cedar the nice red it was? And how deep will the greying get if not corrected now?

bandsaw #4: It's Resaw Recycling Time

08-28-2010 06:35 AM by twokidsnosleep | 3 comments »

I wanted a bandsaw to cut up wood into usable lumber.Now I am starting really small, but have had some initial success with the GO555P.So lets have a look.Pile of cedar fencing I had to replace due to rot at the bases I zipped them through the bandsaw and planed one side and one edge square, then resawed. Here is what I came up with I had better success with dust control and I wore a 3M N95 mask….I didn’t smell the cedar until I took off the mask. My home mad...

desktop Humidor - finished

07-22-2010 04:55 PM by Rick | 10 comments »

I’m making a small desktop humidor for my cigars. I don’t smoke often at all, but being a woodworker it was hard to resist making one.The purpose of a humidor is to keep cigars at the proper humidity (65-70%) and temperature (70deg). So I decided to make two at once. One for a friend and one for myself. Both cases are walnut. One has a cocobolo lid and the other a birdseye maple lid. Both will feature Brusso hinges. CONSTRUCTION:Dovetail joints for the sides. Lid and b...

Wood Hoarder

07-20-2010 03:09 AM by danzaland | 7 comments »

I admit it. I am a wood hoarder. My garage has plenty of untapped talent in it. Tables, chairs, shelves, car ramps… Now just the time to do something with it all.One of my earliest gets was a brace that was rejected at the timberframe shop I worked for.I was able to locate a second one and decided it may hold up a vanity top one day. Those sticks on top were cut out of 8x timbers as a screen channel. Those are 1×2ish at varying lengths. Probably my most prized are these cut ...

Sunshine Yacht Tender Model #6: Buying the Wood

07-12-2010 03:18 PM by kharder | 2 comments »

I have recently moved and progress on the model boat Sunshine has slowed. When i find my camera i’ll post the pictures of the completed molds mounted and aligned on the strongback. In preperation for actual construction I began researching what types of wood to use. I found out about Jeff at HobbyMill (HobbyMill@cinci.rr.com) on a model ship building forum and he has been a pleasure to work with. He has all kinds of wood you can order in sheets milled to spec or in strips. he is ev...

Raised Garden Fencing #5: Finally - Done & Installed

06-29-2010 08:39 PM by BlankMan | 9 comments »

Wow. I can’t believe I started this project a month ago almost to the day and this took me a month. Granted I got sidetracked with a few other projects along the way but still. It was kind of the kind of project I don’t really like. Repetitive. I like making one, or maybe two of something, to make twelve of something got a bit boring at times. Too much like an assembly line. Doing the first of each operation on the first one then the second was fun, on the twelfth, not so fun. But...

Raised Garden Fencing #4: 10 Footers Stained

06-22-2010 07:44 AM by BlankMan | 3 comments »

Well I finally made some progress on this. I got side tracked with my 80 gallon rocks that arrived and then installed a rain gutter on my neighbors garage so that I can collect the water. So I have one installed and with the rain we’ve been getting it’s full and really haven’t had to use it, well, because of the rain we’ve been getting… Made the stand it sits on and the diverter on the downspout to divert the water to it only until it is filled then it goes down ...

YSMBF (Yet Some More Bird Feeders)

06-22-2010 07:18 AM by BlankMan | 9 comments »

I’ve been wanting to get some new, bigger, better bird feeders but I couldn’t find any I liked. When I say “liked” I mean not small, not cheaply made, and don’t cost an arm and a leg. Twenty, thirty bucks or more for some cheap a** plastic or metal or wood poorly constructed piece of junk? No thanks. So I decided to build my own. Well I always have built my own but I was looking to get off easy and not have to take the time to build them. I thought, that if I ...

06-04-2010 03:26 AM by BlankMan | 6 comments »

Well all the frames are built, eight 2’ x 10’ and four 2’ x 4’. Next step is to stain them all and add the chicken wire fencing. All twelve glued up Here are the four smaller ones stained using a all weather neutral/natural stain. It sure did bring out the red tones in the Western Cedar. I do like how that looks.
