Old wooden F-Clamp

01-15-2012 12:07 PM by Nighthawk | 3 comments »

Was given an old wood clamp with a steel runner the other day was a bit worse for wear, it was being thrown out…but but but it is still functionable. Anyway today I decided to give it a bit of a tidy up, I decided instead of replacing the bits I would just sand them as I found out as well the clamp is over 100 years old. So it would be cool to keep the orginal and with its battle scars and all. Before the sanding and re-oil… All I did was give it a light sand including ...

DoDecaHedron Light Fixtures #2: It's actually looking OK

09-06-2012 03:14 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 3 comments »

Howdy, I have a lot more sanding to do and I’m filling the inside. The outside of the structure has been rough sanded and filled. I’m not real happy that I used filler at all but that’s how it goes when you are a rookie. What you might be able to see here is that I used poplar because it is very light weight for a lighting pendant. the outside is actually crosscut. If it comes out as well as I hope it will, I ought to get a nice look out of it. The insides are goin...

Education and torment #2: Red Oak Sandpaper Storage cabinet

01-12-2014 06:44 PM by GeneR | 3 comments »

I would have liked to make it a little taller to handle a couple more shelves and slightly deeper to have been able to recess the back panel. The Box I first sent the oak through the joiner to ensure I had 1 flat square edge. I then cut the board to the proper widths on my table saw then to final lengths on the Miter...

1950s Cass Toy Co Chest Restoration #1: Research and Documentation

03-01-2015 10:23 PM by JenTWG | 3 comments »

This chest is my father’s and he asked if I would restore it for him and fix most of the damage. I first started by researching the chest. I knew by stripping the chest I would most likely loose the images either with a chemical stripper to replace/repair the finish or by sanding. I wanted to see if the manufacturer still existed and could be contacted for information or help during this process. Turns out Cass Toy Company is no longer in business and was destroyed in a fire i...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #948: Carnival of Animals

01-31-2013 12:59 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

What a crazy night! In the eight years that I lived here in Nova Scotia, I don’t remember ever experiencing winds like we had last night. As I read the status’ of my friends that are to the west of us in both Canada and the United States, apparently it is just our turn. And while we are currently experiencing 11 degree temperatures (Celsius), it is supposed to go down below freezing by nightfall and we are to have up to 10 cm of snow. Crazy. I only mention this because I s...
