So here is the entry of my pull out trash can box thing where i show the finish. due to prefinishing i have already done most of the finishing and put some parts together so i figured i would show that now. and then next week i will probably have the finished project up. so to start of course i sanded the piece to 180. i would not recommend using sycamore with hand tools. it doesn’t work well at all, and its hard to tell which way the grain is running. dovetails are really hard with syc...
It has been a bit of a bother to find time for woodworking. I found some today and managed to put in a few hours. Today was about fitting the sides of the lamps to the side edges. Although I got all the I made progress on both lamps but I only got one assembled up to this point. I am going very slow on this so I can enjoy what I’m making. For starters, I added one coat of tung oil before starting the glue up. The glue joints don’t have any tung oil on them so thery are good...
As I have been away at college, this is the first chance I’ve had to organize and set up the new shop. So, here are several shop projects completed over the past few days. First up, the clamp rack. As all of us are aware, we couldn’t be woodworkers without several clamps. The problem is in finding the best way for each of us to organize them. Here is my version: Next is just an organizational item made out of a re-purposed kitchen cabinet. Just a place...
Finnished the Plaque! Well it is finnally done. I kept getting side tracked with other things around the house. This is going to a dear freind of my wife and mine. He has been running the center for the blind in Yuma,AZ for the last 25 years. He is retireing on June 27th. This startd as an “Unknown Wood / Unknown Project” and turned into a dedication. I want to thank everyone who helped this design come into being. Thank You. The Angel is made up of the following woods...
Well over the last two days i have been able to really get some good solid work done on my mirror frames. first i was able to mill all the lumber to final width. then it was time to cut the piece. i don’t have a long miter bed with a stop block so i used double stick tape to hold the rough identical pieces together to give me exactly the same piece. the first picture is putting the tape on and the second is all the piece cut to final length. Then i cut the groove in th...
So I started getting into woodworking and bought a hand plane. So as soon as I got home I wanted to use it, so I put a peice of wood in my vise and started planeing. Five minutes later, my bench was four feet farther forward than it originally started. So I moved it back and kept going. Well I have done that for the past year and a half, and have decided enough is enough. So while I was in school I designed a Work Bench. Here are the specs on the bench:1. The bench is four feet deep, six feet...

Mainly just a few pics, didn’t take many, phone weighed too much.. initial setup, i moved some around later and liked it betterI had them clamped together to be able to lift the slab and judge some weight..gonna be nice and heavy. Wards Master #6 took a 6.5’ full width shaving for me and had to catch the moment :0 I like where i have them aligned at this point, though i still gotta tweek the gl...
Sisters table has broken legs. It is a shame really as it is pretty old table and still pretty good nick. After looking at it best we can do is glue and the try and brace the base a bit more. Now big sis wants to sand whole table back and redo just to spruce up. Now we all love wood, but her house has heaps of natural wood showing and with the table, it actually becomes to much so she is thinking of … eeeek painting it. (shock horror I know, but I actually on this occasion agree with her, ...
Here it is unclamped. It is amazingly within a 1/32 inch roundness. Good enough.
