Roll Around Tool Cabinet #23: Wiping on My Dye Mix

03-09-2017 06:37 AM by HappyHowie | 4 comments »

I had used Charles Neil’s recipe for Red Cherry Mahogany but after wiping this dye on the drawer fronts poplar parts, I decided to change the formula a bit. I wanted a lighter and more brown recipe. After consulting Charles Neil he suggested that I add green TransTint to the recipe. Green and red, he said makes brown. What I did was to test the recipe on some scrap pieces of timber. I settled for adding 1/2 part of green plus 1 part of additional distilled water to the existing 17 ...

Loft Bed Additions #1: Bark Trim Shelf

03-01-2017 04:04 AM by chrisjhennessy | 0 comments »

My sons loft certainly has creative shelving and amazing character. As I look up at the rafters, I see opportunity both in aesthetics and practicality. My plan is to add Walnut Live Edge trim to the bottom of the rafters, this is where the Loft meets the wall. If you look at these two Live Edge pieces, these 5’ pieces will fit right in the space under the rafters. The contrast will look great as a trim and the Walnut which will extend about 2” which will offer a catwalk pla...

Router Cabinet Redo #3: Base & shelf

02-28-2017 06:02 PM by edwood1975 | 2 comments »

The base is basically a piece of 3/4” poplar plywood with a solid oak edge band that is secured with pocket hole screws and glue. I machined a 3/4” dado 1” up from the bottom of the left, right and back sides and the base just slides in. Before assembly I still need to position the 4 locking casters and glue and screw the the base and shelf into place. The upper shelf is the exactly the same piece as the base except I placed to dado 6” from each side to positi...

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 ...

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...
