Spring cleaning in Fall still no fun !!!!!!!!

09-21-2009 04:07 AM by Built2Last | 2 comments »

A couple of days ago I decided it was time to build a rack to organize my nuts, bolts, screws, washers and other fasteners. I don’t know how I got so many but man, they are everywhere. As I sort thru them I am listing them and anything else I either don’t need, use or have more than one of on ebay. So far I’ve listed over 75 items I think and still have more to go. A couple of items are either rare or expensive like a Starrett calibrated master square set (http://cgi.ebay.co...

Spray Finishing #1: Spray Cans

06-28-2012 10:52 PM by captferd | 2 comments »

In my recent blogs I posted videos on a Contemporary Clock that I built. While doing that I found some video I taped while finishing it. The face of the clock was finished with spray cans and the main assembly of the clock was stained with a spray gun. In the first part Ill show how I spray this cool looking stone paint on the face with black buttons.I really love spraying water based stains and dyes and in the next part Ill show you some of the basics to water based finishing.

Built In Closets #6: Face Frames

11-10-2010 06:23 PM by SPHinTampa | 2 comments »

Final step is to attach and finish face frames. I may have already covered this but here is the face frame glue up. Dry fit with clamps to make sure everything lines up. Lessons Learned … do not store your framing materials like this: A warped face frame is difficult to fix, no matter how are you nail it, clamp it and glue it. See my shame below: Next step was to set up tower on saw horses ($22 for metal saw horses that fold up at Lowe’s – I r...

FINISHING #4: MAINTENANCE OF WORK PIECES.

04-20-2008 09:54 PM by Tony | 2 comments »

The frequency of which you maintain the work piece depends upon the usage, the type of wood and the type of finish used. Regular dusting, preferably with a static duster or feather type cleaner. Using a normal cloth can scratch the finish. Try re-buffing the project, if a shine cannot be achieved, then apply a light coat of wax, allow the wax to dry, then rebuff the project to restore its full glory. If the work piece looks dull, especially if using Tongue Oil on Oak, then an applic...

Building my version of the Essential Tool Chest #8: Finished

03-21-2015 01:30 AM by johnstoneb | 2 comments »

Finshed. While applying the finish I realized there was no hardware on the lid for opening it. It is exactly the same size as the box. The only way to open was friction on the sides of the lid.I laid one of the drawer pulls on top of the lid and it looked pretty good. I took an extra couple of days and ordered another drawer ring for the lid. After the last coat of shellac I epoxied in the escutcheon for the locks. The drawer pull came in today. The box has 2 coats of amber shella...

Incra Double Dovetail Project #7: Finishing and Finished!

11-10-2011 05:11 PM by SPHinTampa | 2 comments »

I have been sanding as the project progressed so I am able to hand sand 180 grit and then 220 grit. I then finish with three coats of rub on poly. Let the piece sit for a couple of weeks to wait for the finish to fully cure and then rub out any dust nubs with 0000 steel wool. Finally, I use my Beall Buffing system to buff out the finish. Use the red tripoli finish first, followed by white diamond compound and finally wax. To be honest, I should have sanded to 320 to really se...
