Why buy it when you can make it! #9: First turning project - Cherry Pepper Mill [Part 2]

07-28-2014 01:04 AM by paxorion | 0 comments »

I picked up some Arm-R-Seal on Friday during the Woodcraft anniversary sale and I am definitely a believer in the product’s quality. For starters, it is so easy to use, and levels itself off very nicely. I have finished four coats so far, and plan on putting 1 more coat on tonight, before I let the mill cure for a few days. Looking forward to a grind come next weekend! (My wife can’t wait)

Walnut kitchen countertop #6: applying finish

02-14-2014 01:36 AM by harum | 0 comments »

Have tried two wood stains from Minwax on a scrap piece of walnut: “special walnut” and “golden oak”. I guess they may differ on other wood species or maybe they age differently, but right now look exactly the same after a week or so on walnut. After trying a few options for edges, I selected a simple 1/8” roundover. Anyway, I routed grooves for a miter bolt on both glue-ups, stained them and will apply Waterlox tomorrow. The stained ...

Making a Shadow Box With Splined Miters

01-29-2018 02:47 AM by wrenchhead | 0 comments »

I made this shadow box to showcase my son’s recent school accomplishments. I made the frame out of some oak I had in the shop. I added splines to the miters to give it some strength. This is a great afternoon project that doesn’t take a lot of material and utilizes a simple wax finish.

Mini trim planes #1: More plane inspiration from Mads

06-27-2015 06:26 AM by icemanhank | 0 comments »

My latest tools are these tiny trim planes. Again thanks Mads Felding for the inspiration.They are made from Jarrah and a really lovely figured piece of Banksia; all wood came from the scrap bin. I made two to use up all the timber.The blade is cut from an old 2nd hand Stanley plane using a Dremel. I still have to make another blade, insert the brass pin and design a wedge.I will post pics of the finished articles as soon as I have them finished.

Baby Tender #5: A little finish

05-08-2010 11:28 PM by mpmitche | 0 comments »

Before I take the hull off the molds I want to attach the rockers and finish the bottom. I needed a change and finishing the bottom felt like a good idea. Now once I attach the rockers I shouldn’t have to go back to the bottom again. Here are a couple pics of the rockers and hull bottom with several coats of shellac rubbed on.The finish makes the flecking in the white oak stand out much better than unfinished.

Spline jig #3: Finishing the spline box

01-04-2012 05:16 AM by Sanman | 0 comments »

After sanding, conditioning, and staining, I decided to try shelac. It worked fine. Shelac is a lot different than lacquer or polyurethane. I’m still experimenting with the finishes. (LOL, I’m still experimenting with everything). I like that Shelac drys fast. I was able to put on several coats in one day. Now I need to work on my photography
