Composer's Desk #1: Composer's Desk - blogging the project

03-07-2018 09:36 PM by nickbatz | 0 comments »

I was having these made by a shop out of solid oak or maple for over a decade, and all along I wanted to develop an affordable version. Then – spurred on by someone actually offering money :) – I figured it out: make it myself, and use nice oak plywood and high-quality Douglass fir dimensional lumber instead of solid oak that brings the materials cost up to about as much as this whole thing sold for! Based on posting pics on Facebook, I now I have two more “commissions...

03-01-2018 05:36 PM by Steve | 0 comments »

It’s been cold in my shop this week—temperatures hovering around the high 40’s or low 50’s.

Even though the temps really aren’t that low, it’s not long before I’ve got numb hands (and a short temper). Despite the weather, I spent a lot of time at work in the shop, though most of it was spent on actually finishing a lot of personal...

Shop Notes #7: Wainscoting

01-31-2018 05:12 PM by Steve | 0 comments »

It’s been relatively quiet in the shop the last week or so, as I’ve taken some time off to repaint most of the downstairs rooms in my house. The colors we chose, bluish-grays for the most part, seemed like a nice match with the beetle-killed blue pine I used for the doors on my lathe stand. I worked up a few sample boards and got my wife’s buy-in to install some wainscoting. After testing out a few stain options, I treated some shiplapped boards with teak oil (of ...
