Cherry Nightstand #6: Finishing and Hardware

11-20-2016 10:42 PM by ilyac | 2 comments »

My original plan for this project was to follow the process outlined in this article:http://www.popularwoodworking.com/projects/tips-for-finishing-cherry. Saving you the read, the steps are 1. Apply dewaxed shellac as a seal coat2. Apply glaze, a cominbation of artists oil and Liquin, for color3. Coat the fully dried glaze with topcoat of poly Seems simple enough, but in my own rush to finish the porject I did not cut my shellac with denatured alcohol, and as such the glaze would not reall...

Taliesin Desk Build - How's and Why's #16: The Wood Working Blues

10-18-2016 11:59 PM by EarlS | 1 comment »

I’m a huge fan of the Blues. The Blues are my go-to music in the shop. Stax, Chess, MUddy Water, Joe Bonamassa, Beth Hart, Elvin Bishop, Buddy Guy, the list goes on and on. Well, this week I’ve been singing the Woodworking Blues. I’ve been working on the finish for the walnut desk top. Cutting the openings for the cords went well. I made an mdf template that ran the full length of the top with notches removed where the openings needed to be cut. A little dusty, but the end result t...

Walnut Night stand #6: Tuesday was a bit better

09-13-2016 06:55 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Let’s see, cleaned the bench off a bit Except for a couple tools I thought I might need.. And brought this thing out of hiding.. Yep…that pine scrap did wind up glued in place. Wide chisel to pop it off. Got to looking at the legs….decided in the interests of it NOT falling over, a fourth legs was needed. First two legs were NOT 120* apart… Did NOT feel like digging another dovetail joint into the base with three already glued up. Used one leg as a pat...

Cherry finger jointed box #8: Just finishing up..

09-04-2016 03:41 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, had to decide which type of finish to use on this Cherry box The “Olde Standby” Witch’s Brew? Not quite what I was after, colour wise This is a 70/30 mix of BLO and Varnish. Had to go out and get a new can of each, and find something to mix it all in.. Also that evening in the shop….Box was final sanded. I fought to get those tiny hinges nailed in place, had to glue in a backer strip inside the lid, and then add a strip of scrap between the sides of...

Small workshop struggles with clutter; taking shortcuts

08-24-2016 04:21 AM by Jace McDaniel | 1 comment »

The past couple years ive developed a passion for woodworking. its my time where i can get so focused on my projects and completely block out anything the world is throwing at me at any given time. I guess you can say the craft itself is basically my therapist, only if i were to substitute a real therapist id probably save about 10x the money that i do on tools, but they are beginning to get to the point where they are starting to pay themselves off. In my opinion where the true passion for ...

Shop stuff #53: For Sara conclusion

07-12-2016 04:29 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

More trials and tribulations finishing up the box I made for my daughter. In the end it all worked out though. I did have a bit of a conflict putting it up. Seems it can not be shown in Germany as there is a copyright issue with the part of the song I used at the end. It is not like I am making any money doing this. My channel is very small with few subscribers as I don’t promote it much. I am not good at the whole social media thing and not much of a promoter. I just do it for...

Blogging instead of Woodworking #23: Ebonizing Oak

07-01-2016 05:10 PM by Douglas | 2 comments »

I just posted a little thing on my blog about the process of ebonizing oak with a steel-wool-dissolved-in-vinegar solution. It’s simple to do, and I finally got around to trying it. Let me know what you think. http://dcwwoodworks.com/blog/2016/7/1/ebonizing-oak
