Liming for a Song

2049 days ago by trifern | 12 comments »

This is a blog requested by Douglas Bordner. Midnight Serenade started as an ordinary piece of straight grain oak. I carved an unusual shape to try and bring some interest to the grain. After shaping and sanding, this piece almost receive a traditional finish. The wood and grain were beautiful, but Douglas had a request that needed to be fulfilled. The next step was to apply two coats of Fiebing’s black leather dye. You could also use this technique to ebonize a piece. I t...

Kitchen Cabinets #2: Working on a countertop

2056 days ago by Dan Lyke | 1 comment »

This weekend’s goal is getting the cabinet beside the stove to at least have a usable counter-top. We picked up a beaten up 10’x2’ glued up piece of maple countertop off of Craigslist for $50, and that’s becoming the surface for beside the stoive, and the narrow counter for under the window, with a backsplash cut from the scraps. Today I took a deep breath and cut the first pieces. As I said, the counter-top was pretty beat up with a few gaps, so as I sanded...

Commisions #11: pull out trash box #6 done (sort of)

2061 days ago by teenagewoodworker | 8 comments »

well here is the final post in my pull out trash box thing series. figure i’ll get right into it. first i started by adding some 45 blocks to the place where the trash can sits. i had to notch it because that drilling would have been pretty hard without a drill press. i notched it a bit to much though. and i used brass screws. why? because they were the only ones that were short enough to not go through my surface. but to sound smart just in-case someone missed the bucket its good th...

Grandpa's table #1: I have an idea

2062 days ago by mcoyfrog | 2 comments »

Not sure how to start this, i’ve never done a blog before and i’m not the best at writing/speaking LOL. So here goes. Many years ago my grandpa made a coffee table for us, i’ve been trying to figure it out and my best guess is between the years of 1972-1974. It has passed through all our family at one point or another, but the last several years its been in storage because its a hard table to make work in ones living area. You see its very large about 6’ long to be ...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #25: WoodWorking Vision

2067 days ago by frank | 3 comments »

WoodWorking Vision ....how big is your wood-working vision?....and what happens to your head-room once the expansion within your head decides to get a vision of be-ing a-head outside?....where will you get your vision from and will you also frequent the market-places of traditions to honor the money-changers? ....for without a vision your wood will perish! ....just as the fire you feel within your belly of now,will just as soon also go into the alley ways of extinction,just like ...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #24: All Good Wood Projects Need....

2069 days ago by frank | 3 comments »

All Good Wood Projects Need…. ....a StoryLine! Yes that’s right, and with the story line one can start with an image in their head, which when transferred to wood, shows a start. Now this project began before….where we are jumping into at this stage….but the before only included some wood, jointing of the edges, planning the two faces, then the process of glue ups, cutting the inside out with a jigsaw and the original orbital pre-sanding with #60, #80 and #100 gr...

Commisions #9: pull out trash box #4 (finish)

2073 days ago by teenagewoodworker | 13 comments »

So here is the entry of my pull out trash can box thing where i show the finish. due to prefinishing i have already done most of the finishing and put some parts together so i figured i would show that now. and then next week i will probably have the finished project up. so to start of course i sanded the piece to 180. i would not recommend using sycamore with hand tools. it doesn’t work well at all, and its hard to tell which way the grain is running. dovetails are really hard with syc...

Sweeping Juniper Coffee Table #2: The table top. 70% Sanded

2081 days ago by Tim & Candy Hicks | 1 comment »

Here is the top, it is 70% sanded. You can see the large crack around the center of the the hearts, we will fill these cracks in with inlay and add some to the other side as well so we can balance it out. We add a tempered hardboard to the underside of the top, this adds extra stability and seems to help the wood from twisting over time plus with a few wood screws, bolts and gorrilla glue, it is a great way to attach the top to the base. We knocked the dark spot out of the...
