Yellow cedar burl table

03-25-2015 04:16 PM by Gbluee | 0 comments »

This was a fun week and a half project… When my wife’s uncle past away 3 years ago, the family had to empty his house and my father in law stumble across a few burls and this stand. He brought them back and gave them to me for me to do something with. I waited quite a while before I got to it, but I think the wait was worth it. I started this project last week and I made a small video of the process.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hx24ggsNDSQ I started by cleaning the saw marks with a...

Stickley inspired Entertainment Center #12: Slow but steady progress - Finishing

06-11-2011 10:19 AM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 0 comments »

Bought Mission Style drawer pulls at Rockler. They had some Stickley pulls that I really liked but couldn’t talk myself into $40 each (I need 3). Something about paying as much for the drawer pulls as I did for the entire unit just didn’t sit right with me. Found some mission style pulls that were more like $7.50. They look pretty good, but not as “Stickley” as the Stickley ones: Did some sanding of the third coat which is on the top of the unit using 280 grit s...

Doll Baby Crib Project #1: Doll baby Bed

12-10-2013 12:26 AM by Dan Tindall | 0 comments »

So I’ve been looking for a project that I could use as a gift for my Granddaughter (almost 2) and this month’s Wood Magazine had it right there between their pages. A Doll Baby bed project seems exactly what I was looking for and would fit in with time that I have available.It also doesn’t hurt that I had almost all of the materials sitting in my cut off bin! So, I am now about 50% complete with this project and due to a couple of the parts that need to be made, I d...

Walnut kitchen countertop #7: finishing

02-16-2014 04:55 PM by harum | 0 comments »

This is the countertop after application of two coats of Waterlox. The color looks good: dark enough and warm. Waterlox (Original) turned out to be very thin and runny, and after two coats the surface is still patchy and with what feels like a thin film. The pores are still showing. This may be good for penetration into wood and sealing it; will take though more than four coats I planned as a finish at the beginning. Have to wait over 24 hours between coats because of the tem...

A non-plywood 4 drawer filing cabinet #1: The design

04-30-2014 09:29 AM by GCM | 0 comments »

Here is my attempt to build an affordable wooden 4 drawer filing cabinet. I rule out: Plwood, as it is way too expensive in Australia for anything but the most expensive style of furniture.MDF, I built a single draw prototype and, even when using frame construction, it was way too heavy.Melamine, may be a good choice but for this project I don’t think it looks good enough.Solid wood, as it is too expensive. My current choice is to go with premium (knot free) pine and pine panel...

A Strategy for Woodworking #7: Finishing Makes the Difference

07-10-2014 05:49 PM by Gary Rogowski | 0 comments »

How do people engage with your furniture? They look at the form first of course. If they like the shape ofa piece, then they approach it. They eye it to see the wood and the sheen of it. Always, without fail, the very next thing they do is touch the piece. Everyone loves to put their hands on wood because it’s warm, it’s inviting. And if there’s a finish on the wood, then what folks will be touching is that finish. You have to pay attention first to how that finish looks and next how it feels...
