Burled Cottonwood Log Furniture Dining Table #5: Delivery and Setup

02-15-2009 09:43 PM by Tim & Candy Hicks | 2 comments »

Here it is delivered to house. It takes two people to carry each stump and six men to carry the top up the stairs and into the house. I sure am glad I was the one taking the pictures. The measurements on this table are 81 1/2” x 44” and 31 1/2” tall.

Preventing Blotching Using A Wash Coat #1: Finishing with Wash Coats

01-04-2015 03:10 AM by pjones46 | 2 comments »

I am starting to put together an article covering finishing and this will be part of the coverage but not just limited to preventing blotching as a wash coat will aid in a more consistent staining color. This will be updated as my thoughts are organized. This is only a small portion: A wash coat is a coat of thinned finish that’s applied to bare wood to partially seal the surface before a stain is applied. It reduces the amount of stain from soaking into the wood and causing blotching. ...

TV Stand #9: Finishing and finishing

01-09-2012 03:09 AM by Angela | 2 comments »

Finishing and finishingI have completed my TV stand and it came out better than I hoped. I learned a lot from this project and can’t wait to make my next piece of interior furniture. FinishingI wish I could say everything went off smoothly but I had a few problems finishing the project. One major problem was splotching, where one area stains dark than another. I also had a hard time learning to fill the wood. I tested about 12-15 different stains and dyes until I came across two of the...

Plywood template-cut rocking bench. #1: Sort of a late entry...

12-27-2012 04:31 PM by Fridgecritter | 2 comments »

I started this project because I saw a really cool contemporary rocking bench on the internet, and wanted to tweak the design a little so it fit my wife’s needs. The original design was a bit low to the ground for our taste. Here is the original design: http://www.designwoo.com/2010/11/d-van-dirk-rocking-chair/ So I thought about how I would do the same chair, only a little higher off the ground. I knew I wanted the grain of the plywood to show vertically as you are looking at the...

"adirondack chair making" #1: my first adirondack chair was made in 1995, now two decades later, I am still at it

02-05-2014 10:37 AM by paperclip | 2 comments »

when I was a freshman in high school (1995), I won the end of the year award for woodshop when I produced an Adirondack Chair. Now 2014, I am still at it. I only get better and better at them. Now I am giving them some Texas, southwestern, rustic flare with a cut-out the shape of the state. I now make Adirondack chairs on a weekly basis mostly for therapy. But I sell them too. In post(s) to follow I will explain more about Adirondack chair making.

My Steampunk Telescope #6: A Home For My Round Mirror.

08-28-2011 04:56 AM by TelescopeMaker | 2 comments »

Special announcement! This will be the last in this blog series! I have finished my Steampunk Telescope! Of course, that doesn’t mean I am finished tinkering with it. That is the thing about Amateur Telescope Makers, we are never really finished with a telescope. But for all intents and purposes I am. When I point it at a star, it is well balanced and stay where I point it. It does shake to much when I adjust it, and it settles down within 3 or four seconds. Not fantastic, but no...

Murphy Bed #12: Spray Gun Practice

04-28-2009 01:14 AM by Gene47 | 2 comments »

Well today I went out and bought myself a good respirator to use when spraying paint and lacquer. Then after getting back home I went out and put some mineral spirits in my new spray gun and set up a large piece of cardboard and went to adjusting and practicing. I think I have the air adjustments very close to what needs to be when I actually start spraying the lacquer. I will just have to spend a few minutes adjusting the material flow once I get real lacquer in the gun. I also fiddle...

A little more breakdown....

10-08-2010 06:15 AM by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) | 2 comments »

I picked up the bearings today. They’re made in Japan. I can deal with that. For about $23.00 my mind will rest easier while I’m running the saw, not being paranoid of a 50+ year bearing going kaput and sending blades my direction. Also, I finished breaking the saw down into multiple parts and took a few better pictures. Have a look at the album to see them. I left all of the smaller rusty parts soaking in some old Evaporust overnight. Let me drop a little information...

Twisted Coffee Table Base #6: Ready to Spray the Finish

03-06-2009 09:48 PM by Tim & Candy Hicks | 2 comments »

Here is the larger coffee table base. Ready to be sprayed. We will spray them with Satin Polycrylic and most likely have to flip it upside down and spray the bottome with couple of coats and when that is dry, flip it back over and do the top part.
