A little more breakdown....

10-08-2010 06:15 AM by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) | 2 comments »

I picked up the bearings today. They’re made in Japan. I can deal with that. For about $23.00 my mind will rest easier while I’m running the saw, not being paranoid of a 50+ year bearing going kaput and sending blades my direction. Also, I finished breaking the saw down into multiple parts and took a few better pictures. Have a look at the album to see them. I left all of the smaller rusty parts soaking in some old Evaporust overnight. Let me drop a little information...

In the second post in this series, we begin to think of finishing as a process rather than a discrete step in furniture making. Questions and comments gladly accepted and I’ll work them into subsequent posts in the series.

Finishing a project can be one of the scariest phases of woodworking. Beginning with this post I will pass along some tips and tricks that will improve your finishing skills and take some of the worry out of the process. While I am NOT a professional finisher, I have worked with some of the best, and a lot of what they know we can easily apply in our own shops. If you have a question I will try to answer it in this series of posts.

This is not a brand new project. I submitted it, because of a request by MsDebbieP for the CS1 Kitchen challenge. I was out in the shop one day, & thought to myself, what can I make? I said, how about making a recipe holder easel for Barb’s kitchen. So I dug out some pieces of wood from my scrap bin, & proceeded with the project. I didn’t have a plan, but I knew what I wanted it to look like, so the first thing I made was the main spindle post. Then I ma...

Splines vs Biscuit Joiner #8: Finally it is FINISHED!

09-26-2010 10:50 PM by RonPeters | 8 comments »

Ok, I’ve been working on this for about 18 months. A little here and a little there… a piece at a time. It’s finally finished and now I can move on to making instruments. I never built a bench, or anything else – unless you consider that bowl I turned in wood shop 45 years ago? – so there was some learning curve involved. I never: made box joints or drawers, glued up a top, made and installed mortise & tenon’s, installed a vice – let alone two ...

128 - Shellac Under Polyurethane?

09-25-2010 06:27 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 14 comments »

I have heard countless times that you should never put polyurethane over waxed shellac. From books to magazine articles to forums to DVD’s, the message is always the same. Even the back of the shellac can itself says not to use polyurethane. Now I have always taken the “better safe than sorry” route, simply avoiding regular waxed shellac. But there have been so many occasions where I have heard of people accidentally using waxed shellac under polyurethane with no det...
