Had a great time today with Rustic Rick his wife Nancy, Billie J. and his wife Lou Ann, SteveMI, and Myself and my lovely wife Kris. I got a cheaper version of the Gripper from Woodline USA, at $16.00, and a router for my Dremel. Oh man they had some wood to die for, we just had no way to get it home. I’ll have to let the other guys tell you what they got cause I wasn’t paying to much attention. Needless to say I couldn’t find any Lathe tools to speak off. Or any thing else ...

I have a Walnut table top I have put attached to the frame. What are your thoughts for a finish, what should I use. I don’t want to worry about water spots or something warm being put on it and the finish peeling up. This is really far out of my league I have never built anything like this I just need some great advice please!!!![IMG]http://i955.photobucket.com/albums/ae37/nattnaifeh/table2.jpg[/IMG]http://i955.photobucket.com/albums/ae37/nattnaifeh/table2.jpg
SteveMI made me a guinea pig for a project he made of a Longworth Chuck. Gladly I accepted. It was a beautiful model and worked great, one thing I improved on for my own turning was to make the bumpers longer because I usually turn bigger bowls. He had used rubber cane bumbers with an inner core of oak which worked very good, but my design served my needs better. In our communication he told me he is selling these and making a 16 inch larger model, mine is an 11 and 1/4 inch model. It really ...
Today I started applying the finish to my lock. I am using Arm-R-Seal for the first time It seems to be working out really well. Finishing is not one of my strong skills, but I am trying to learn as much as I can.
This is a prayer kneeler I am building for my girlfriend’s mom. She says the rosary every night, and shes been talking about buying one of these. I looked on the internet and the cheapest ones were going for like $150. Granted these were oak kneelers, and the one I’m building is pine, but I figure with a little sanding and a nice finish I can make it pretty nice. Plus so far I’ve only spent about $11 on the wood! (prayer kneeler)! I’m ALMOST done building...

A deep red mahogany finish doesn’t have to be the result of a complicated process. I’ll show you how I use a simple two-step method to revitalize my mother in law’s old beat up rocking char. First, a coat of General Finishes Merlot Water-Based Dye. Second, a coat of General Finishes Brown Mahogany Gel Stain. Its all finished off with a nice satin lacquer topcoat. Topics Covered: Application tips for water-based dyes Application tips for gel stains The co...
Here are some pics of our recent Kitchen remodel in progress. This is the condition of most of our cabinets— they’re toast. Here is a real life saver my wife got me this for Christmas. Look at the poor job the original electrician hid behind the old range hood. I decided to add a plug-in and box for the microwave. I plan to move the fridge, dish washer, sink and window to the right about one foot or so. Plug-in fit like a glove. Bracket installed and ready for t...
