Built In Closets #6: Face Frames

11-10-2010 06:23 PM by SPHinTampa | 2 comments »

Final step is to attach and finish face frames. I may have already covered this but here is the face frame glue up. Dry fit with clamps to make sure everything lines up. Lessons Learned … do not store your framing materials like this: A warped face frame is difficult to fix, no matter how are you nail it, clamp it and glue it. See my shame below: Next step was to set up tower on saw horses ($22 for metal saw horses that fold up at Lowe’s – I r...

Episode 84 Entertainment Center Part 5 from kostas workshop on Vimeo.In this episode I finish the entertainment center. I go over some changes I made to the top panel. Then I work on the 2 in tall base. The base sits 1-1/2 in from the edge of the entertainment center all the way around. Then I glued up all the parts. I didnt get as much video from the final glue up as I wanted to because I was really rushing towards the end of the contest. Overall this was a pretty good project took about 180...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #157: Improving on a Good Thing

11-07-2010 01:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I already know that it is going to be a great day. I only realized last night that we will have an extra hour and that this is the weekend we change our clocks. I always loved that extra hour. Even when I was quite young I enjoyed the advantages of it. Apparently I was even busy as a child and had little trouble trying to fill it. I decided yesterday that I am going to proclaim a “jammy day” today. I ran my errands yesterday and have no reason whatsoever to leave the house...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #155: Time to Take a Stand

11-05-2010 10:00 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I am writing this blog last night because we decided to high tail it to Halifax in the morning for probably our last trip into the city before winter hits. Today, we went to a new wood place that our friend Bernie recommended today and got some incredibly low priced and high quality hard woods. Among our finds were some nice ash at $2.00 per board foot, some flaming birch for $3.00 per board foot and some curly maple which was also only $3.00 per board foot. We didn’t get a lot bec...

Refinishing Jobs ? I dread.

10-28-2010 06:06 PM by Doug Scott | 12 comments »

I don’t mind some of the things I refinish . But this is the one that I wish that I would have turned down.I will post this one my projects , so check that out if you desire. It’s a french door , with 15 panels of glass , the fun about this is cleaning the old paint out from the trim around each pain of glass and then getting it all sanded, but not only do you or should I say ( I ) have 15 panels but I have (TWO SIDES ) that means 30 panels . It was painted with two layers of pa...

Bedroom Wall Unit #8: Spraying is becoming better

10-27-2010 10:51 PM by depictureboy | 2 comments »

I want to thank everyone who commented on my spraying conundrums the last couple weeks… I am now adding 2 dixie cups of denatured alcohol to 1 quart (sprayer cup) of dewaxed shellac…it is going much better. I also realized that the sprayer shipped with the largest needle installed. I downgraded to the smallest and that seems to be going much better now too…. You cant see it in the picture, but the finish is super clean…I put on about 6 coats last night and yo...

Built In Closets #3: Face Frames

10-23-2010 12:48 AM by SPHinTampa | 0 comments »

I forgot to cover cutting the biscuits for the face frames in the last blog entry. So here we go. Using story stick, I marked the biscuit centers on the face frame styles. And I marked the center of one rail to set up the jig. Then I used a biscuiting jig that I built using plans from Wood Magazine to cut the FF sized biscuit joints for the face frames. Lesson Learned … make sure you have adequate space to cut joinery when you route a profile into a face frame … in ...
