My Mini LJ tour 5-7/8-09

05-09-2009 06:25 AM by Karson | 25 comments »

I spend Thursday 5/7 taking my son to my daughters home to spend the week while my wife was out of town. Our first stop was at Greg McNabbs home in West Virginia. LJ Dave with one of Greg’s dogs. The three of us with Greg at his home. I had to buy a new camera about 15 minutes from Greg’s home. So excuse the second picture. We went out to a local Greek Diner to have a nice meal. It was then on to Woodstock, Virginia to my daughters, the Kramers Albert with my lat...

Inspiring Young Woodworkers #1: A Special Gift from Charles Neil

11-26-2007 09:51 PM by David | 15 comments »

Click for Large Format Movie I just posted this on my woodworking blog and felt it was something important to share with my fellow Lumberjocks. I am sure many of us can remember middle school and high school woodshop. It is a sad state of affairs that industrial arts are being dropped due to budget constraints. It is up to each of us to help pass on the joy and traditions of woodworking. Those of you that have followed any of my entries on, The Folding Rule Podcast or...

Let me start in order Debbie found Matthew’s video on G+ and asked if she could add it to LJ’s, I was m...

Two days in The Shop of Charles Neil

12-12-2007 12:08 AM by mikega | 8 comments »

Well I thought I would try my hand at my first Blog. This past weekend I got to go down to New Market VA to spend some time with Charles Neil. Many of you know Charles from the Lumberjock site and through his YouTube and DVD videos. So I hope I thought I would tell you a little more about him. Hope this works. Two weeks ago on Sunday after I just finished putting the last piece of trim on a Keeping Chest that I started with Charles back in October he called and invited me down to New Mark...

Trestle Table #46: How Should I Finish This Table Top?

11-24-2016 07:25 PM by HappyHowie | 6 comments »

If I was to start over with selecting the finish coats for this table, I would not use Boiled Linseed Oil (BLO). I do believe that it has gone on okay. I am satisfied that the BLO has done what it can. However, the blotchiness on the table top does bother me. I believe as the cherry ages that the blotchiness will dissipate, if not disappear in time. However, I know there is not a guarantee about that result. My options from here are (1) continue to apply more BLO, (2) spray some Shella...

Roll Around Tool Cabinet #23: Wiping on My Dye Mix

03-09-2017 06:37 AM by HappyHowie | 4 comments »

I had used Charles Neil’s recipe for Red Cherry Mahogany but after wiping this dye on the drawer fronts poplar parts, I decided to change the formula a bit. I wanted a lighter and more brown recipe. After consulting Charles Neil he suggested that I add green TransTint to the recipe. Green and red, he said makes brown. What I did was to test the recipe on some scrap pieces of timber. I settled for adding 1/2 part of green plus 1 part of additional distilled water to the existing 17 ...

Refinish a Table Top #1: Neighbor's Coffee Table

11-30-2016 07:03 AM by HappyHowie | 4 comments »

Martin called me. He is my neighbor. He asked how do you remove white rings on a coffee table. I said that I know white rings are easier to remove than dark or black rings. Let me look it up and I will send you a text with the answer. I found a YouTube video posted by Charles Neil. He proposed two methods for removing white rings. The first he did not demonstrate. It was using a cloth soaked with boiled linseed oil (he said thjs would be his only time he would recommend the use of BLO...
