View on YouTube Few time I decided it was time to improve my sharpening gadgets, so after some research I found this design of a sink a bridge. its basically two board, one on top of each other merged with a screw that also serves as lock to put the stones. In the end I gave it a nice coat of epoxy to make it waterproof. Now I have a tool that makes my life easier and that its gonna last. Hope you like this video. And if you want you can also find more projects and builds in my channel h...
So I was given what was basically an old chunk of walnut firewood by a friend, as well as some random scrap pieces of milled walnut (among other useful things as well). I decided one day to roughly slab the big chunk when I was already doing the same with a cedar log for another project. It looked amazing when I opened it up, so I continued with the process. I started by using my router sled on one side of both slabs (2 pieces is about all the big chunk yielded). Then sent both thru the plane...
Ready to choose finish Here are my options in stock: Wipe-on Varnish (MW Tung Oil Finish) Epoxy—West Systems w/#207 Clear Hardener Shellac (Clear) BLO FWIW, I hate “flash” photography. It really brings out flaws and false contrasts, IMO. To the eye, my corner lid fix does not have that much contrast. I wet with denatured alcohol to clean of dust and to be able to see what the box looks like with a finish. Things look better than these im...
I don’t know why this video didn’t embed properly. I did it the same way I always have, but this time I got a black square. If you know why then please let me know! At least the YouTube link works. Here is the photo, but you will have to click on the link below the black box to see the video: Photo is not the video, click on link below black box to see video. View on YouTube ANYWAY… I inlaid decorative black stars in my slab coffee table. This is one of thos...
Some time back, members of the Wanapam tribe, here in North Central Washington, bought a couple of my walking sticks. As well, they expressed interest in a unique one I’m currently working on. Meanwhile, the Wanapams opened are really nice interpretive center, which I had the pleasure of touring. In the course of that tour, I saw many photographs of work being done on hides, dug outs, various activities and so on. The visit to the Center inspired to create some of the things I s...
here is the link to my Video https://youtu.be/31stGdvPuzk This was just a fun project. I used a scrap of Padauk wood and epoxy to embed a bear craw and arrowhead.
Filling the drawers from this project.Turns out you can get a lot in a 13-3/4” wide x 16-3/4” deep x 7” tall drawer. This one has three levels of organization. OCD is completely satisfied. Bottom level dividers 3/8” x 2-1/2” dividers, friction fit, no glue. Holds touch up filler, stain & graining bottles, burn in sticks. Middle level is wax rub on sticks. 3/4” deep sandwiched between bottom and top levels Top level is for the most used s...
I want to seal the end grain on several redwood Adirondack chairs and planter boxes to slow down the rotting process and other moisture damage. Didn’t want to buy expensive sealing epoxy just for this. Tested System Three Epoxy with #2 Hardener on the end grain of four different species. Fresh mixed epoxy is quite runny and it kept soaking into the end grain of all samples for about an hour or so; I applied more epoxy of the same mix a few times over an hour. After about two hours...
Bit by bit and either with a palm sander or by hand, the table has been sanded to a nice smooth finish. 180 grit was the last grit I used and I felt that is sufficient for this project. I am quite happy with the progress and the way it looks. Now for the next step and looking for a bit of advice. I have researched as much as I can about applying a epoxy bar finish. I think it was on a youtube post that someone prefinished their table with tung oil. I am thinking of doing the same thing ...
Overview Floor installation is pretty simple. Considerations include waterproofing, support, and water drainage. Waterproofing I previously fiberglassed the bottom side of the floor with 2.3 ounce fiberglass cloth and two light coats of epoxy. I used 6 ounce cloth for the side you step on with two coats of epoxy also. The top side of the floor will also be painted with flat green paint. Support The span between each rib is about two feet and 1/4” plywood would break wh...
