Finishing Info for the Woodworker #3: Finishes and their Compatibility

01-07-2015 04:38 AM by pjones46 | 1 comment »

Finishes and their Compatibility Almost any finishing product can be applied over any other as long as the “other finish” is dry and the product you’re brushing doesn’t dissolve and smudge the existing. For example: Let’s for arguments sake you are not using spray equipment and that you have made up and applied a water based PVA blotch controller as describe in my previous article Preventing Blotching Using A Wash Coat 1 to a cherry surface. You then apply a water-soluble dye for col...

making a shadow box chest #1: My husband is retiring after 24 years of service in the US Navy

04-17-2013 09:32 AM by thejaegers | 5 comments »

__My husband is retiring, soon, after 24 years of service in the US Navy and I am in search of something special for him in terms of a shadow box. I am new to this site and have never “blogged” before so, here goes. I recently found a shadow box chest, a most impressive one I might add, on this web site and I would love to be able to find someone to make the same for me. Since I am new to this site it will not allow me to message the individual for information on this particular i...

Just for Fun... #25: The Trays Begin...

07-14-2010 09:35 PM by littlecope | 11 comments »

In the last episode it was decided that, because this Box is a little bigger than usual, I’d be making some trays for it. I guess I’m still anxious to use the new toy, because I sized the wood I’ll be using last… first!!After Re-sawing another scrap of the Cherry, I thinned it down on the Jointer to about 3/16”. These will be for the bottoms of the two trays…With the Imbuia top, and Cherry sides on the outer Box, I’m going with Imbuia sides and Cherry...

How's that for a deal?

07-17-2010 04:30 PM by ScottMorrison | 5 comments »

Greetings everyone, As some of you may know, my videos/templates are now carried by Woodcraft (woHoo!): What you may NOT know is that they have been significantly discounted from my original prices. So, of course, I lowered the prices on my website as well. Now everyone can save some bux and have a chance to build one of these pieces for themselves. In addition, if you visit the Woodcraft website here, all of the router bits (which are now made by Whiteside) needed for some of the ...

Free Cherry

07-19-2011 04:46 AM by Clay Ortiz | 5 comments »

Last hunting season I found a nice big cherry burl on a dead tree that was still standing. We had our camp work day this past weekend so I cut down the burl while I was there. I already had a nice cherry log that my neighbor gave me about three months ago. A friend of mine told me about a guy that could cut them and his mill was only a few miles from my house. Since I had the burl on my trailer I figured I would load the log and get them cut.The guy that milled the wood for me h...

Taliesin Desk in Cherry #5: Second Glue Up and Wedged Tenons

12-03-2015 04:19 AM by JimYoung | 5 comments »

The second part of the leg glue up is pretty complicated. Luckily, my Father In-Law was in town for the holidays and he gave me a hand getting all the parts in place. For the through tenons, I used a small amount of glue on the faces of the tenons to minimize squeeze out. Once the legs and “window frame” pieces were all clamped up, I taped off around the mortises. I then forced glue into the top and bottom of the mortise before driving the walnut wedges in place. Removi...

Entertainment Center #2: Lumber selection

11-24-2009 05:26 AM by Loogie | 4 comments »

Cherry was specified for the piece so we took a drive up to Hearne Hardwoods in Oxford, Pa. They have a fantastic selection of Cherry. I really wanted to get some wide boards for the top and sides. When we got to Hearne they showed my some 12” wide boards that they had that were almost completely clear and just under 12’ long. The problem was that the entertainment center is to be 6’ long so I would be just shy with one board and I wasn’t willing to pay the wide board ...

Exercises in Artisanship #25: Practices in Spoonology: Part four

09-10-2012 10:32 PM by jjw5858 | 7 comments »

So my business of country spoon sloyd craft carries on. Forgive me if my tales on this exploration have become boring, I realize there is not a lot of joinery going on. I am closing in as I enter the words here for session 4 of 5 of this spoon blog and have really made some nice strides. My greatest findings have been using the soil I live on to adventure more deeply into the woods and come out with new species I have never worked with before such as Hickory, Black Walnut, and Black Locust...
