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...

Kitchen Remodel #1: Phase - I

02-08-2010 02:29 AM by BRAY | 4 comments »

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...

Bathroom Remodel #1: Creative Bathroom Remodel

02-05-2010 10:24 PM by Dennis Fletcher | 3 comments »

Well, I was supposed to just replace the old vanity with some cabinets that they got from a friend, because the cabinets they got were in better condition than the ones currently in the house. Seemed pretty straight forward, nothing really difficult or interesting to see here, folks, so move along…..... Oh, wait, nothing fits right, go figure. Yes, their simple switch out turned to a bit more, but they are really enjoying it. I had to put together 3 cabinets, bring them out ...

Working with River Recovered Old Growth Trees (Step back in Time).

02-05-2010 06:38 PM by WatchfulNine | 7 comments »

This week I embarked on a new Adventure, or maybe and Old one! I had the privilege of turning a piece of “River Recovered Old Growth Bullet Tree” that had been sitting at the bottom of a river in Belize for an estimated 150 – 200 years. When I first received my piece of “Old Growth Bullet Tree” from, I wasn’t sure what to expect from it. I did know it had been at the bottom of a river for 150 years and even though it had been vacuum kiln dried, it would be as we turners...

The making of a Telescope Eyepiece box #2: More pictures

01-30-2010 05:22 PM by Dennis Fletcher | 2 comments »

I have been busy, as of late, with actual work, going out of the shop to build, so I have been slow at getting pictures of this box uploaded. For any who are interested, here are current pictures. I need to put a finish on it, molding on it and complete the interior. (A small box that will be able to be lifted out for filters.) Last, but not least, I need to add some sort of handle on each side.

Living Room Paneling Project - Comments Please

01-26-2010 05:24 AM by Roostermiester | 8 comments »

I have been starting a wood paneling project for the past couple months now (part of a larger reno project). It was originally going to be done in MDF (and was started) until my wife informed me that she wanted it stained to match some other built-ins we have. So that means real wood. I am thinking about doing it with 1×3 poplar top rail and stiles, 1×4 bottom rail, and 1×2 or 1×3 chairrail and the panels in either 1/4 in. birch or oak plywood. Depending on how the bot...
