Getting close now, Glued up the frames. Loving the 90 degree clamp braces (or whatever you call them), don’t remember where I saw them but thanks to that person for the idea! Glueing the lap joints pretty basic. Drilled out the corners and plugged with purpleheart plugs, turned the dowels using the bandsaw method… pretty hard on your blade. Everything sanded to 320grit and then start applying the finish. Using 1/3 poly 1/3 mineral oil 1/3 boiled linseed oil (three...
Like any process through the creation of wooden spoons this has enabled me to become more adept at understanding the process of making bowl shapes. This work is small, and I find it to be just the correct size for beginning to grow the skill. A spoon carved from pine: Hopefully as time goes on I will have more equipped larger timber, a hand adz and a bowl horse for correctly jigging in the blanks and working them to finality. For now this small piece of cherry wood presents a strong first ...
The base for jointer keeps going this weekend. Worked in it only on sunday, and finnaly ended the woodworking part, remaing now just the finish and minor adjustments. Started by the enclosure. The dust drawer with exact dimension to accomplish a plastic dust port and 4” hose connector. Using 12mm MDF (about 1/2”). Removed the originally footer to made a minor changes. How these are just cosmetic items, I will added later justin gluing it in the base. This will give him a bet...
Not a huge amount to add today I’m afraid. The main carcase of the cabinet has had its medium sanding completed (up to 240 grit) and the first guide layer of wax added. I’m genuinely not sure whether this is a valid or efficient method of using wax (it certainly uses up a lot of it) however it produces far superior results than those from the instructions or other methods I’ve picked up. My waxing procedure is to start early. Once all the glueup and sanding that alters fo...
Hi Folks, I did a review of the Guinevere Flexible Finishing system for my scroll saw blog. I thought a few of you may be interested also. It’s a pretty nice system. Part One: Part Two:
My brother and I have spent a good deal of time lately building a blanket chest our of quarter-sawn white oak. We have the inside lined with aromatic cedar (not fully installed yet, till after we put the finish on the rest of the project). I thought that I wanted to spray on the stain and the topcoat (was planning on polyurathane). I bought a turbine HVLP sprayer, the one from Rockler, which I wanted to get eventually anyway, b/c I keep reading/hearing that it puts a better finish on. I hav...
Oddly, I have lived for the last couple of years or more without a dining room table. We have utilized a fold-out picnic table for the purpose of this necessity, though we rarely eat at home anyway (anyone want to have us over for dinner?). We used to have a dining room table. We bought an excellent bargain at an antique sale – it was an old-ish appearing oaken table about 6 feet long and 2 feet wide. It had some very heavy, solid members of 8/4 stock – presumably White Oak....

11 months ago it was decided we would have new years on our new deck that was only built a month before. So we decided on the spur of the moment to build a bar From there the bar seems to have taken on a life of its own. It no longer an out door bar, it is fully enclosed and water proofed... which in it self was a challenge once was water proofed we got power added so the bar fridge and TV, lights and accessories. The french doors we made at my work and got them installed once they went up...
