Wine Rack Expedition #7: The end in sight... yet...

04-02-2009 07:16 AM by Demowen | 4 comments »

Well Folks, I did what I could today. It was a long day of work and hospital visits so shop time was certainly limited to a few hours late into the night. I left a bit of a glue mess on my back assembly last night so I paid the price for it today.Now, that picture was just to show the assembly without clamps, but this one should be better…and some more….I had a few pictures of my lady checking my sanding job but they all were too blurry. She walked around it and made sure I d...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1495: Micro-Cutting

02-11-2015 12:35 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Everybody likes a challenge now and then. I know that when I challenge myself, I not only usually learn something new, but I grow as an artist and designer. If I don't push myself into doing something that is a bit out of my comfort zone, then things start to lose their excitement. Sometimes it is hard to take the time to challenge yourself when you are self-employed. It seems that we are working from deadline to deadline, and it is easy to slip into the habit of taking the path of l...

Tips #2: Suntan your cherry, #2

07-15-2008 04:18 PM by Al Navas | 4 comments »

From my latest blog entry, First, my thanks to all who read my earlier entry, and sent me e-mail requesting a follow-up. Here is that follow-up, from my blog:==================================== In this episode I answer a question from Michael, on WoodNet: Is there a difference in suntanning before or after applying the Waterlox? I noticed that you only applied one coat on 1/2 of the board but never showed the end result of the suntan. And my reply was: I currently have the tes...

Building a Computer Desk - The great design process.

10-09-2013 11:50 PM by JustJoe | 3 comments »

I woke up one day last week and decided I wanted a new computer desk. First order of business was the planning process. A cup of coffee and five minutes later and that arduous task was complete: It’ll be about yea wide, so tall, and will use that common cherry with all the black sap that I need to get rid of. It seems a bit vague now, but it looked exactly like what I wanted in my mind. I started with four legs, but had no 8/4 cherry and 4/4 looked too thin so I used a lock-miter bit...

Whole House Remodel #1: Transferring Blog from HomeRefurbers

10-22-2013 11:03 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 9 comments »

I started a whole house remodel several months ago. I figured that homerefurbers, LJ’s sister blog site would be the appropriate place to do a blog. Unfortunately the site’s been taken hostage by mass spamming and no one can seem to keep up with cleaning it out. My start to this is Here at homerefurbers. It’s the beginning of 6 posts there. I’ve decided to continue the blog here. Here is the latest post, After the living room, bedroom, and bathroom. I’ve start...

Preventing Blotching Using A Wash Coat #1: Finishing with Wash Coats

01-04-2015 03:10 AM by pjones46 | 2 comments »

Wash Coat #1: Finishing with Wash Coats I am starting to put together an article covering finishing and this will be part of the coverage but not just limited to preventing blotching as a wash coat will aid in a more consistent staining color. This will be updated as my thoughts are organized. This is only a small portion: A wash coat is a coat of thinned finish that’s applied to bare wood to partially seal the surface before a stain is applied. It reduces the amount of stain from so...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1312: Finishing The Banner Project

05-07-2014 11:37 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday was a wonderful and beautiful day and it looks as though today will be the same.   I think that spring has FINALLY arrived in Nova Scotia.  I love the quiet of the early mornings.  As I crossed the road to go to the trash bin and bring it to the side of the road for pickup, I could hear the birds happily singing as well as the river rushing by. The sun was warm and the air was cool and there wasn't a cloud in the sky. I know I live in an amazing place when even ta...

Cherry Nightstand #2: Acquiring, sorting, and preparing wood

02-22-2014 04:43 PM by Todd | 1 comment »

I’m very fortunate to have a sawyer close by that caters specifically to hobbyists. These are very knowledgable and nice folks. Shameless plug: Hobby Hardwood Alabama Here is a photo of the first batch of rough sawn cherry I chose: I recently reconfigured and upgraded my dust collector http://lumberjocks.com/projects/95715 which worked out great because I jointed and planed most of this wood in preparation for this build. This picture shows how well the thien baffle worked:...

Tool thoughts #7: Lumber Rack

09-01-2008 03:34 AM by NedB | 3 comments »

Looted my storage unit today. I had this pile of wood in there… plus just a bit more ‘shorts’ and ‘cutoffs’ but they’ll come home tomorrow. I had to clear out the rack just above the mitersaw, so I put up a couple more arms on the wall and moved the short stock over there. I won’t need to buy too much wood for awhile.. who am I kidding anyway? Mostly cherry, (middle section), plus some maple and butternut (bottom and top sections) ...
