Banquette first furniture attempt #3: My third child is stained and ready for protection

12-01-2015 05:57 AM by Woodchuck4 | 0 comments »

I call this my third child because as I’m nearing the finish line with this we have had two children, my wife quit her job to stay home with the kids, and I’ve gone through a job change (with promotion). With all that has gone on this poor project has had more off time than on, but now I am so close to the finish line I can taste it. Since the last post I got all of the final little cuts and finishes buttoned up. I was still struggling with the stain but finally found...

Art Deco TV Table #2: Modeling for Shape

11-25-2015 02:55 AM by newTim | 2 comments »

Once I had the basic concept sketched out I needed to see the thing in the actual space. The height of the table is important for ease of use, aesthetic proportions, and to provide enough clearance along the sides to reach the chair controls. The angle of the table is important to set the angle of the chairs so they fit in the room. Yes, I actually set the chairs and divined the angle. Also important was the arc of the front of the drawers. So after making many real size 2D drawings I ...

Art Deco TV Table #1: Form Follows Folly

11-22-2015 10:02 PM by newTim | 5 comments »

Or perhaps the title should be, “Form Follows Tragedy”? Here is the initial chapter of the design and construction of a most challenging project. But why would anyone ever want or need to build such a thing? What follows is the documentation of a two year journey into pattern making, wood bending, form construction, curved veneering, trim inlay, creative joinery, jig design, and the ultimate victory of patience and stubbornness over a project that fought me every step of the ...

Klein Solid Body Electric Travel Guitar #11: Finished - Started Tuning

11-16-2015 10:26 AM by Dave G | 1 comment »

As promised I made the stop, and a whole lot more. The guitar is almost done. It plays and my son gave it a whirl and he likes it. The String Stop – Needs Polishing The overall view is shown below. I finished the body (maple / limba blend) with satin poly. i finished the neck with lacquer and wet sanded it to 2000. Apparently guitar players like the feel of lacquer and it has good properties when used next to the skin a lot. I finished the fretboard with lemon oil (D-L...

Shop stuff #13: A simple and beautiful finish

11-13-2015 08:37 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I have seen variations of this all over. I don’t think the ratios are overly critical. The results are wonderful. I think I may have found my “go to” finish. Replace the BLO with mineral oil for a food safe finish.

Inlay card table refurbish #1: First, get some advice

10-26-2015 05:27 AM by peterrum | 9 comments »

A neighbor of mine gave me this table as he is not a woodworker and felt he did not have the skills to refurbish it. So now I have another project. The table has no commercial markings on it so I feel that it was home made some years ago, maybe 50 years ago but I have nothing to base my estimate on. At any rate the table looked interesting enough that I will make an attempt at fixing it up but I am looking for a lot of advice and suggestions from anyone. My first ste...
