A small conference table - the build #6: Start applying the finish to the top, and set up legs and aprons

2030 days ago by Al Navas | 2 comments »

I continue work. For the upcoming several days I will continue applying the finish to the top; today I started applying the Zinsser Seal Coat (shellac) to the underside. And work started on setting up for cutting tenons on the aprons, and mortises on the legs. From my blog: Sometimes, decisions are tough. For example, to start the work day today, I debated whether to start applying the Zinsser Seal Coat to the table top as it lay on the workbench, or take into the finishing room. The...

Book Bench #2: Mortises, Tenons & a Finishing Fiasco

1379 days ago by spunwood | 2 comments »

M & T With two tenons per leg, I created the dillema of chiseling 8 mortises. I do not yet have sharpening stones and my skills with mortising are a bit lacking, so I decided to simplify and just do two by hand and cut off 6 tenons. This meant alot of sanding to even up the top of the legs so that the bench top would sit evenly and be supported throughout rather than by just one or two of the leg tops. But I am so happy that I kept two mortises. They came out well despite some te...

A Guitar for Daniel #5: The first 90% of the project...

617 days ago by Dan Lyke | 2 comments »

...takes 90% of the time. The remaining 10% of the project takes an additional 90% of the time. So it feels like we’re closing in, but finishing and hardware installation are still going to take a little while. Sunday morning Daniel was off partying with friends in San Francisco. I went out to the shop and did a bunch of shaping, and then Charlene and I went over to Tall Toad Music and, with the help of the very friendly staff there, dug through the basement ‘til we found ...

Murphey Bed building #1: Murphey Bed

2010 days ago by prez | 2 comments »

Well, I’ve started my project. Got some poplar boards cut up today and after some final words of wisdom from my assistant in the shop (see photos) I assembled the base for the bed. Now I have to wait for the plywood to arrive from my lumber store. My assistant will be back tomorrow to check out my work. http://picasaweb.google.com/sicordg/MurpheyBed?authkey=BbTHjroAieQ&feat=directlink Stay tuned…. I think this is going to be fun…

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #157: Improving on a Good Thing

1389 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I already know that it is going to be a great day. I only realized last night that we will have an extra hour and that this is the weekend we change our clocks. I always loved that extra hour. Even when I was quite young I enjoyed the advantages of it. Apparently I was even busy as a child and had little trouble trying to fill it. I decided yesterday that I am going to proclaim a “jammy day” today. I ran my errands yesterday and have no reason whatsoever to leave the house...

This is one of those time. ...
