My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #2: The maple dresser tray

1510 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

First of all, I want to thank you for all your positive responses. I was able to look at some of the work and it was so impressive! I am trying to put faces with comments and projects so I can get to know everyone well, but as my brain gets older, it somehow takes me longer to associate one with the other. I get so embarrassed when I don’t remember someone. But there has been a lot of water under this bridge and after not traveling and living in the same place for the first thirty so...

Prep for Finishing

1549 days ago by HighRockWoodworking | 2 comments »

the years I had many different methods and idea about how to get a project ready for finishing. Like any other part of woodworking we all have our own way of getting to the finishing stage. Some smooth every part and piece with a drum sander, others use a jointer to clean the face of boards, and there are those that prefer hand tools and use a smoothing plane. The smoothing plane takes some practice and I do enjoy using hand tools on my projects but it is definitely a lot more work. No...

My Pen Making Process

1605 days ago by Karson | 22 comments »

I’ve had a couple of questions as to what I use for finish on my pens. So, I thought I’d post a small process flow. I didn’t do the drilling process because the batteries died, so this is the lathe process. I’ve purchased a couple of new lathe pen making tools, and I got a new Lathe chisel for my birthday. So this is the first time on this lathe. And the first time with these tools, but I’ve used the finish before. I got a new Carbide Lathe tool. I saw t...

Arts & Crafts Dining Room Set #12: Rodel Chair Layout

1636 days ago by CaptainSkully | 4 comments »

So I took a few minutes to draw this up in AutoCAD (sorry I’m not up to speed in SketchUp yet). The only dimension I had to assume were the front-to-back rails that intersect the middle of the chair back. I went with 3” because that’s what looked to scale, and gave room for a proper radius. I could’ve sprung for the $20 full-sized plans, but what’s the fun in that? The reason I drew this out is because the back is defined by a 7 degree angle. I thought it w...

Arts & Crafts Dining Room Set #11: Next Step...

1636 days ago by CaptainSkully | 6 comments »

So, the new top is in daily use. I put seven or eight coats of Bristol Finish water-based polyurethane on it. It’s a marine varnish for boat interiors, which I used on my old table, and it’s pretty impervious. No coasters required! It’s still sitting on top of the mock-up MDF and the old table, so it’s pretty high. I was going to start on the Rodel Taliesin base next, but since I made the leaves, I don’t have enough lumber to make the base, or the mone...

Arts & Crafts Dining Room Set #10: Make Like a Tree & Leaves

1653 days ago by CaptainSkully | 2 comments »

I was able to successfully refinish my boo boos on the breadboard ends. I also sanded the leaves and finished them at the same time. The ends had a bit more stain to start with (from the previous finish), but they both came out looking great. I’m really glad I learned my lesson on shellac. BTW, it did a bit of redistributing of the aniline dye, so I had to quickly blend/tip it before it got tacky. I missed a couple of spots on one leaf but was able to blend it in with the gel stain...
