Pin Hole Camera #2: A few progress pics. I'm liking the look!

03-16-2016 02:44 AM by Matt | 0 comments »

I’ve got the main box complete (6.25” square) and the front cover on and finished. There are flaws – some tear out in the finger joints that I somehow managed to glue on the outside for all the world to see…. And a small crack on the front). But still I’m pretty happy. I’m not an experience wood worker really. I’ve made more shop jigs than anything really, so I’m feeling pretty good about this. Here’s a few pics. The box finished ...

Fumed oak

03-16-2016 01:25 AM by Brodan | 4 comments »

Fumed a small piece that I built to use for mounting an antique pencil sharpener to the wall in my study. The fuming with household ammonia in a plastic container for 2 days uniformly darkened the oak. Shown with a cut off of the original piece. Now what’s the best / easiest way to get the the reddish brown look of the other pieces in the room. Shown on a table that I’d like to look similar to. I’ve read BLO followed by amber shellac. Is this the correct path or ???...

Side project: Dovetail saw handle

03-15-2016 06:07 AM by blue77 | 4 comments »

My dove tail saw handle was in ruff shape. When I first got the saw I thought that I would have to make a new handle. But having nothing to lose, I just glued it together to see if it would work. It worked! Now it was really just a matter of cleaning it up. I started by scraping off the thick layer of grime. Then I sanded it down. I did not want to remove all of the character of the handle I just wanted to clean it up a bit. I gave it a good coating of boiled linseed oil a...

Cigar Shop - Display Rack

02-27-2016 11:32 PM by McPheel | 0 comments »

The other day my brother gave me a call, asking if I wanted to build something for his shop. He owns a Cigar shop in Whitecourt Alberta called Cheap Smokes and Cigars. It’s a really cool shop, very classy and nostalgic, they have the basic inventory of cigarettes which they sell cheaper than any gas station or grocery store can offer, but beyond that they have an array of humidors (My creations will soon be joining this inventory), Pipes, Tobacco, Vaporisers and a massive walk in humido...

Taliesin Desk in Cherry #10: Finally!

02-25-2016 09:51 PM by JimYoung | 3 comments »

We’ll its finally finished. I’ve been busy since my last entry, but I kept pecking away at it. I had some issue with the finishing. I had the top all done, and decided to add one more coat. I had wet sanded it down with 400, and wiped on the final coat. The coat did not cover like when I was brushing it on, so I let it dry for 6 hour and brushed on what I thought would be the final coat. When I came back, the finish had bubbled in several spots. So, back to sanding. I&#...

Project to learn woodturning. #1: My Chess Set

02-25-2016 03:13 PM by JWags | 0 comments »

My son asked me to make him a chess set. I used his request as a long awaited excuse to buy a lathe and learn to turn wood. This chess set was my first experiment. There are 7 videos so far in the series.

Inlay card table refurbish #6: Final Chapter

02-22-2016 07:36 PM by peterrum | 0 comments »

So how many of us change our plans as we go along on a woodworking project. I would think the majority do for any number of reasons. My initial thought for this project was to put an epoxy bar top finish on it. After my research it would cost me about $150 for a quality product. Scratch that idea and lets go with a poly finish. 8 coats of poly, then wet sanded, followed by two more coats on top and the top is done. The folding table leg hardware that was on the original was broken, so o...

Today's Buys 20FEB16

02-21-2016 01:47 AM by Dex378 | 2 comments »

So today I had an hour to kill so I went up to my newest favorite store in XXXXwood, MA. It’s a junk store pretty much, they buy out estates and sell off the house contents, pretty damn cheaply I might add. Anyway, as a lover of all that is junk and all that is tools I picked my way through and found some decent stuff at a spectacular price! So I picked up a 25’ extension cord, a Stanley framing square (even though I probably have 6 of them at $0.50 cents I just had to have it...
