Workbench Build #36: Back at it.. Fitting the Tool Well...

353 days ago by Airframer | 12 comments »

Well, now that I am done distracting myself with mallets, saw benches and cleaning it is time to get back at this. I have set an arbitrary deadline of September(ish) for completion of this bench so it is time to ramp things up a bit. We left off with a partially fitted end cap in the last blog. A bit more progress has been made there. I have the Dovetails cut and “fitted (will require more plugs and shims.. perhaps by the 4th dovetail I will have this figured out?) As before I ...

Twisted Coffee Table Base #6: Ready to Spray the Finish

1966 days ago by Tim & Candy Hicks | 2 comments »

Here is the larger coffee table base. Ready to be sprayed. We will spray them with Satin Polycrylic and most likely have to flip it upside down and spray the bottome with couple of coats and when that is dry, flip it back over and do the top part.

Prospecting for Wood #4: Last Night's Dumpster Dive

2602 days ago by Paul | 6 comments »

Went for a walk with my wife last night. I have been eyeing this large dumpster behind an old house in our neighborhood for the last few days. I’m not sure whether they’re preparing the house for demolition, remodeling or moving, but the dumpster was full. I took a closer peek in the dumpster last night and went back with the van after we got home. Click the thumbnail pic for a larger view. I guess they tore out a cedar lined closet in the house. I now have enough 3&...

Renovation - Industrial Warehouse #1: The Proud Pauper's Way

1999 days ago by Scott Parsons | 2 comments »

Well, it all started just a couple weeks before Christmas. I knew it was coming but didn’t appreciate the impact it would have. My girlfriend, Heather, and I decided that we wanted to live together but I didn’t want to leave my living space because it’s in the building I work in and I always wanted that warehouse living experience before I decided to truck it back out to the country. When I moved into this 500sq. foot shed-within-a-bigger-shed it was a nightmare. I kne...

Woodworker's Auction #2

765 days ago by natesd | 1 comment »

The end date for my Dad’s auction is a little less than a week away (June 25). Every time I look at listing on the auction sight I can’t believe how much stuff there is. I said in my first blog about this auction that “all” his tools and remaining stock of lumber was up for sale. That isn’t quite true my brother and I have kept a few tools and a stock of wood for our own use in years to come. But it’s hard to believe that what we have kept is maybe a fourth...

Juniper Coffee Table Base #2 #4: Hand sanding and polishing

1985 days ago by Tim & Candy Hicks | 4 comments »

We are finally at the sanding and polishing stage. We shand with 180 to 220 on the darker wood and 220 – 400 on the lighter wood. We will then take it outside where the light is perfect and make sure that we have all the scratches out of it. The colors look dull but once we spray it they will stand out.
