Dovetail Pen Turning #2: Attempt one - Failure but learning opportunity

12-31-2009 01:01 AM by SNSpencer | 2 comments »

Finished up the first set of pen tubes for the Dovetail Pen endevor. Not worthy of a finished pen and now I will need to get a pen disassembly kit to salvage the parts. Oh well, I need one anyway. Problem: Since I don’t currently have a blank drilling jig the center holes were not perfectly inline with the line of the dovetail joint. This leads to pattern allignment issues on the finished pen.Solution: Looks like I will invest in a pen blank drilling jig or make one. (I need on...

Palm boxes #2: Re glueing, sanding, and finishing

01-11-2012 10:35 AM by Sanman | 2 comments »

So I had to wait another day after re glueing my palm box back together. After I got the clamps and tape off, this is what I was faced with. I don’t like sanding glue. Ok, one step back, now two steps forward. After Re sanding the lid, several times, I have everything attached and working again. There is still a hair line fracture visible after the clean up. The lid is working much better. It even stops halfway back instead of flopping all the way open. I...

It was so much fun gluing the frame of the bench together (!#$%^&* *&^%$#) = need more clamps , I forgot to take pictures.I like how it’s shaping up though.This is after glue-up, before finish:To glue up, I wiped all mating surfaces (including the dowel holes), with acetone. I used TiteBond III; hope it goes well.To finish, I sanded down to 220 grit, wiped clean. I then wiped with acetone, and applied Penofin. I had to take it outside to see how it looks in its future ‘...

Craftsman - Stickley Projects #4: Finishing Advise

06-01-2007 09:48 PM by Paul | 2 comments »

I should be able to post pictures of the twin in the next couple of days and then start the drawers (I cut a bunch of rough parts for the drawers yesterday), but I’m starting to think ahead to finishing. I’m concerned about the solid red oak taking the stain differently than the red oak ply. Any advise? 1. I plan on testing it out with a scrap of each first.2. Experience or advise on fillers for porous oak? I haven’t tried fillers before.3. When I stopped by the Rock...

Renovation - Industrial Warehouse #1: The Proud Pauper's Way

02-02-2009 04:59 AM by Scott Parsons | 2 comments »

Well, it all started just a couple weeks before Christmas. I knew it was coming but didn’t appreciate the impact it would have. My girlfriend, Heather, and I decided that we wanted to live together but I didn’t want to leave my living space because it’s in the building I work in and I always wanted that warehouse living experience before I decided to truck it back out to the country. When I moved into this 500sq. foot shed-within-a-bigger-shed it was a nightmare. I kne...

a simple black pen with a simple finish

02-19-2012 07:28 AM by jacen68 | 2 comments »

This isn’t a tutorial, but a way to remind myself. Simple isn’t very forgiving. I’ve finished one simple black ebony pen with the hopes of equaling the same finish quality. A shiny glossy ca glue finish was the lofty goal I was trying to attain. Tonight I was denied the satisfaction. This was my 3rd pen. The 1st was done on a whim which led to the 2nd. The 1st was done without care and expectations, but the gauntlet was thrown down. It generated interest where someone reque...
