Hide Glue Wash Mix for Cherry I read somewhere that a thinned Hide glue wash was at one time used as a preconditioned to cure blotching so have taken 2oz of Titebond Liquid Hide Glue and mixed it with 12 oz of water as a second test. The reason also for choosing the liquid hide was it was more transparent vs being a cloudy white when mixed with water and this I felt would dry more transparent. Anyway, I sanded my sample board with 220 as prep, applied a liberal coat of the hide glue was...
I have been painting on this guy for about a week and still haven’t got him finished! There are a lot of little details and it just seems to take a while. I hate not to be carving, but I really don’t mind the painting that much, at least not like some carvers do! It can really add to a good carving, depending on the subject or style of the carving and I learned to draw and paint a long time before I started carving. I use different painting techniques, but I’ll describe ...

Well, actually the S word, but the S word is part of the F word anyway…..............................???? I need all the help I can get…..I do have the Wood Spirit looking out for me…..or is it that fellow that sits on our shoulders…. Busy sanding a 4.1m long African mahogany top for a very long built in desk with drawers. 4.1m is about 161 inches for those who still prefer to measure with King George’s thumb……I think it was his thumb, I know it was some king’s thumbR...
This is the first real HD video I have put out. This video is a much higher quality than any other video I have put out. In this episode I build maple pencil holders. I started out with making the bases which have a round over profile on each side. Then I used my tablesaw to re saw a piece of 3/4 maple to use for the box that sits on the base.
Well I can cross the table off my bucket list. I am extremley happy with the way it turned out for me being a novice woodworker and all. Here is the completed table with the carvings and the finish put on. Now I was going to carve the pecans in but I thought they would show up better if I burned them in so that is what I did. When I was making the center pedestal, I thought of trying to turn one but decided against it because I have never turned anything. So I made a Hexagon Bas...
So after spending 820 days working 26 hours a day, 8 days a week on restoring this dresser it’s finally DONE! Ok, so it certainly was not a priority project and got very sporadic time devoted to it over the last 2 years but what a chore it was… I think it’s far easier to build something from scratch than to restore an older piece. As you can see from the first couple of pictures, there is a slight cup in the top which wasn’t able to be straightened out and you can s...
