I have over the past few weeks been able to start taking some overstock merchandise, merchandise that the customer either forgot about or didn’ t have the funds to pay after the customer used the companies sharpening service. Some of the blades, router bits and some shaper bits , I will be keeping for my self but, to be albe to buy more I have to sale items I don’t normally use or if there is way more of an item or group of items than I can use myself. This is one of those time. ...

Toy Boeing Stearman Kaydet Bi-Plane #9: Finishing and Assembly

977 days ago by RandyMorter | 2 comments »

I decided to just wipe on some Danish Oil for these projects, mainly because I’m lazy and didn’t want to try to do the Arm-R-Coat. I MAY spray some shellac on them but I’m not committed to it at this point. Sometimes it seems easier to apply finish before the full assembly in order to get into all the nooks and crannies. Since I’m just doing a wipe on oil I figured I could proceed with glue up. First I glued the bottom wing to the fuselage. I marked the center of the front of the bottom...

Sweet Chest of Drawers Build #11: Finish the panels before the glue-up

359 days ago by Kyle | 2 comments »

Well, here it is almost 10 months since I’ve done any work on this project. It’s mostly because I was taking a night class in preparation for the Nursing program this fall, and on top of it, my Uncle has introduced me to fly fishing which has occupied almost all of my free time in the spring and summer so far. ...Since these panels are solid wood, to account for movement, I finished the panels before gluing the case up so that none of the panels will have unfinished edges during t...

Work In Progress #3: Canasta #3

975 days ago by Byron | 2 comments »

There are many parts of this project I do not want to discuss, mostly because they all involve mistakes. With this project I unfortunately made many stupid errors regarding dimensions and process of operations, but in ways that are rudimentary to woodworking. I tried to recover and hide these though thinking about the saying that being a good woodworker is not about making no mistakes, its about how well you can fix the mistakes you make. One of these mistakes came from a lack of room in...

Bedroom Wall Unit #8: Spraying is becoming better

1365 days ago by depictureboy | 2 comments »

I want to thank everyone who commented on my spraying conundrums the last couple weeks… I am now adding 2 dixie cups of denatured alcohol to 1 quart (sprayer cup) of dewaxed shellac…it is going much better. I also realized that the sprayer shipped with the largest needle installed. I downgraded to the smallest and that seems to be going much better now too…. You cant see it in the picture, but the finish is super clean…I put on about 6 coats last night and yo...

Turning Progress

1109 days ago by thiswoodshop | 2 comments »

Today was a very productive day. I had a some time to ruff turn my big black walnut blank and put it on the shelve to dry completely. There also was some time to finish my walnut root bowl and the small cherry bowl. I’m still improving my skill set with every bowl that’s finish. I must say if I look back at the first day I started turning and successfully broke a tool whiles impaling a peace of test wood into my garage wall. I’m much more comfortable with the different speed of the lathe and ...
