Sapele & Cherry Kitchen Table #5: Hand planes and shavings

51 days ago by CaptainKlutz | 4 comments »

The saga continues. Spent the morning flattening the top of the Sapele panel, and trimming the ends square.Apologies, but I forgot to take a picture before my son and I flipped it over to work on the bottom side. Was sort of anticlimactic when top was flat. Not much to see in an unfinished flat 39X108” Sapele panel? Here is the bottom of the panel, with my caulk marks on what needs work in my next hand plane marathon. As I was shutting down and cleaning up due the 104 degree...

Cherry Nightstand #8: Staining and Finishing

53 days ago by Todd | 4 comments »

Since I needed this nightstand to match our existing bedroom furniture I decided to mix the stain myself. I was not satisfied with the results using off-the-shelf oil-based stains so I decided to try my hand at using dye stains. I ordered some TransTint dyes in Reddish-Brown and Black. Since TransTint dyes use water and/or alcohol as the solvent then I knew I was heading down the path for a completely water-based stain and finish. Since water raises the grain of the wood and Cherry ...

Sapele & Cherry Kitchen Table #4: Table top finally glued together

53 days ago by CaptainKlutz | 1 comment »

So, if you’re reading along, you know I have some so-so 2X4’s acclimating in my shop, that I have to turn into clamp cauls, so I can hopefully glue my table top together. Let the boards sit in the shop on stickers for 5 days to acclimate hoping they recover some. The twist and bow issues are reduced by half, but still makes for more work than I wanted. It’s summer in Arizona now, my open air garage shop was 100-105 last two afternoons. So I can only get a couple of h...

Sapele & Cherry Kitchen Table #1: Getting started in a big way

67 days ago by CaptainKlutz | 4 comments »

Not a fan of blogs as I don’t need any more computer time, but figured I’d make my first one (maybe my last).So where to start? SWMBO has been asking for a new kitchen table to replace an existing $100 press board & Formica piece of junk.I haven’t made much from Cherry in many years, and have been accumulating a few 4/4 boards from CL thinking, if I found some decent 8/4, then I would start the kitchen table. Several months ago, I learned that one of the local cabi...

Outfitting the workshop #11: What NOT to do with the lathe!

69 days ago by Mark Shymanski | 4 comments »

This us the second stupid thing I did in the shop today and since the trend seems to be toward increasingly dangerous results I thought I would maybe leave the shop and find something safer to do ;-) for the rest of the day. It was one of those moments where that wee voice in your head says ”...you’re gonna regret this,don’t do it…” just microseconds before IT actually happens. If I had listened to the little voice I would have stopped the lathe, repositio...

Shop temp hit 100 today :(

70 days ago by CaptainKlutz | 14 comments »

It’s about that time here in sunny Arizona. Happens every May, and lasts till late September. My garage shop hit the 100 degree mark this afternoon while I was working on some trestle legs for a dining table.Definitely time to start working early mornings when it is ONLY 80-85 degrees.Cleaned up and took this picture before I decided to hide in the air conditioning. Please don’t say it is a dry heat. it is NOT dry heat when you’re sweating like a pig wrestling 8/4 l...
