Shop storage projects #23: Chisel dresser: final details done

02-22-2017 05:44 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Just about wrapped this project up. Had to set it up on the bench.. Had to measure for a kicker for the bottom drawer… Glue and a couple screws to hold it in place. Measured for a plywood back… Again, glue and screws. Started applying cleats to hold the top in place… Then added the top… No glue, just enough screws to hold things still, is all. Couple at each end. added this cleat ( on the wrong side, at that) to hold the shelf support in ...

View on YouTube In this video I take some Oak stock that I previously prepared and make a picture frame. Repetitive parts have been edited out. Total real time to make this was about one hour start to finish, not including the 30 minutes clamping time.

Reclaimed barnwood flooring

02-18-2017 09:38 PM by aefarm | 4 comments »

Hi All- We have just bought a farm house that comes with a barn. We would like to replace flooring throughout the house and the barn that comes with the property is old, but in good condition. It has a 2nd story loft floor that I think would make perfect floors. They are 6”x 3/4” tongue and groove pine planks. Any advice on the process of using this as flooring for our house? I assume they will need planed down. I want to keep as much character as possible, but also want floors that are fl...

Log Side Table #1: Finishing up...

02-13-2017 09:49 PM by Heatherjen | 2 comments »

Ok, so my first blog to a new series is finishing up a project…. Kind of backwards but this is my first blog ever so I’m just going to jump in where I’m at. First off… I’m just a single mom to one teen.. And I really don’t know what the heck I’m doing… So if you enjoy watching major improvisation, you’ll enjoy watching my progress. I have very few tools and do much of my work by hand. My favorite tool? My Leatherman Wave. So, this littl...

a simple happiness

the best feature of woodworking is simplicity of making friends happy with some simple projects and it will be more interesting for nostalgic objects. one of my friends took me this old and lovely coffee table to strip finish and rejuvenate it.the finish was too old and it was easy to remove with sanding and after that i applied some coats of hand rubbing varnish. when I was finishing I thought it’s not important what techniques we use and how complex they are but thinking about h...

Honey locust outdoor bench. #1: The start of my outdoor bench.

02-08-2017 04:51 PM by mchapman87 | 1 comment »

So I am finally getting started on making a few new pieces out of my small garage woodshop. Money has been tight and I haven’t been able to get the wood I need to fiddle around with. I was given a load of rough milled lumber from a friend who is just learning how to use his mill. Most of the pieces are not flat, pretty wavy but are fairly thick. This helps because I can take off some material flattening the pieces, making them useable boards. He didn’t charge me an...

Shop stuff #78: Sally's Coffee Table Pt 12: More French Polishing

02-08-2017 02:01 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Going farther than I needed to, but I was experimenting and wanted to show the process. One of my favourite finishes. I think the wax in the shellac caused a few issues. I have only used dewaxed flake shellac before but it is not available locally, so I tried what I could get my hands on. View on YouTube
