Reclaimed Pine All-Weather Morris Chair #12: Finishing? More Like Starting a Whole New Project

05-25-2014 04:33 AM by TimBridge | 3 comments »

I had read many times before about the three pillars of a craft: Design, Construction, and Finishing. Let me tell me you, after this experience, I truly realize now and appreciate the amount of effort and knowledge and true craftsmanship that goes into finishing. I posted on multiple forums, read many an article, and watched a veritable slew of finishing videos. Videos about outdoor finishing, videos about varnish finishes, articles about the pros and cons of diluting your polurethane. ...

Reclaimed Pine All-Weather Morris Chair #9: Finish Test Palette

05-24-2014 10:36 PM by TimBridge | 0 comments »

Since this was my first foray into a proper finish ( the most I’ve done before is a spray lacquer finish ), I decided to make a test board. I put a bunch of test dowel plugs into it and broke it out into a bunch of different sections. I used Varathane Dark Walnut Gel Stain and Minwax Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner. Top row is 80 grit, middle row is 150 grit, bottom row is 220 grit. Left to right columns are 2 minute rest time, 4 minute rest time, 6 minute rest time, 8 minute rest tim...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1321: Art Play Date

05-22-2014 12:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

You would think that the last thing that I want or need to do is to take on more projects.  Being a designer, my day to day existence is filled with projects and the process of creating things.  I work in many different medias ranging from wood to painting and now even to textiles and needlework. There are times when I feel a bit overwhelmed by all that I have on my plate. Why, on Earth would I choose to try to do even more?I believe the answer can be summed up in one word – c...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1312: Finishing The Banner Project

05-07-2014 11:37 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Yesterday was a wonderful and beautiful day and it looks as though today will be the same.   I think that spring has FINALLY arrived in Nova Scotia.  I love the quiet of the early mornings.  As I crossed the road to go to the trash bin and bring it to the side of the road for pickup, I could hear the birds happily singing as well as the river rushing by. The sun was warm and the air was cool and there wasn't a cloud in the sky. I know I live in an amazing place when even ta...

A non-plywood 4 drawer filing cabinet #1: The design

04-30-2014 09:29 AM by GCM | 0 comments »

Here is my attempt to build an affordable wooden 4 drawer filing cabinet. I rule out: Plwood, as it is way too expensive in Australia for anything but the most expensive style of furniture.MDF, I built a single draw prototype and, even when using frame construction, it was way too heavy.Melamine, may be a good choice but for this project I don’t think it looks good enough.Solid wood, as it is too expensive. My current choice is to go with premium (knot free) pine and pine panel...

Land of Nod #5: A month ahead of schedule and two weeks too late!

04-14-2014 02:56 PM by byerbyer | 1 comment »

Well, the fat lady hasn’t sung, but she’s warming up! Since last we spoke (read?) the walnut received a true oil finish and I glued it all up and drilled for the hardware! I pre-finished as much of the walnut as possible with 3 coats of Tried & True varnish oil following Christian Becksvoort’s method laid out in FWW #152 Circa 2001. This stuff is very viscus and I found heating it up using a small jar on a candle warmer made it wipe on much easier and sped up the d...

Workbench #4: The Finale

04-02-2014 06:25 PM by john2005 | 25 comments »

I will mostly post pics in this one. By now, if you have followed at all you have gathered that I suck at blogging. A writer I will never be. Some technical data. Final dimensions are 81 1/2” long, 27 1/4” wide and 35 1/5” tall. Species are Walnut and Birch. Pulled off the double through tenons, albeit not perfectly. Nothing a few little wedges couldn’t fix. I feel the bench to be a good reflection of me. A little unusual, not too crazy, has some flaws, functi...
