Less noxious overspray.3. Better finish with no orange peel. Actually it is glass smooth, and seems almost automatic to get perfect results. 4. If you accidentally run the cup out of finish, it just quietly stops spraying. Compare this to the sputtering mess created by a siphon gun. 5. Two...

Boards of Christmas Gifts.Fresh out of the planer, these are Christmas gifts I am working on. I still need to sand, round the corners and route the edges. I am going to finish them with Butcher Block Oil from General Finishes $8.99 . But I might do one with mineral oil from Target $1.52 to see if there is a deference. and should I put a Butcher Block Conditioner after I oil them up ? Thanks for looking and Happy Holidays.

Counting Blessings

12-07-2010 01:50 AM by Doug Scott | 7 comments »

I hope the blessings have come to you as they have for me this year I have been woodworking for 25 years or more and from 2002 I have been self employed, well this year has been the so far the best year of the career. I have never had as much woodworking lined up ahead of me. A back log of 4 to 6 weeks , I often stop and thank God for the talent and knowledge I have been given, and the customers too. It has been a fast paced year, taking care of my Aunt, keeping up with all the house hol...

It's still a pig's ear

12-06-2010 06:54 AM by wwbob | 0 comments »

Having a Yoda to guide you thru the complexities makes any project fun instead of work. I am blessed to have not one but two Yodas, Mark R. and Lou K. My workshop is not only equipped with thousands of dollars of tools, but has two wise teachers. My workshop: http://lumberjocks.com/wwbob/workshop For about the past year, I have been working on the Doll Cradle project, http://lumberjocks.com/projects/40571. The design requires true 1/4” thick plywood. All the veneered plywood measures...

Wheelchair Woodworking #9: Right hand man Gordon part two

12-04-2010 04:06 PM by Jamie Speirs | 10 comments »

We finally get things moving and get a Draper swivel head variable speed lathes. Were all the rage years ago. It immediately had a problem with it’s capacitor. Happens to be the only thing that goes wrong with this motor. It’s fairly bullet proof. So I ask Draper if they can send a spare capacitor. I get a snooty reply telling me that a replacement was being sent and the other lathe was my responsibility until it was collected at their convenience. Now I don’t know about you all, but that typ...

Wheelchair Woodworking #8: My Right Hand Man Gordon

12-02-2010 12:58 PM by Jamie Speirs | 7 comments »

Gordon is my right hand man, I thought that I would tell you a bit about how he has changed my life.Gordon and I were introduced to each other by his brother in law fifteen years ago. I was in hospital with his BIL and he thought that we would get on. Gordon is also disabled and has many similar interests. We both like Counrty & western music along with the 60’s & 70’s music we grew up with. We both went gun slinging, It is the UK so we fire blanks. Will we ever grow up? I hope not.Go...

The New Workbench #1: Description of Bench

11-26-2010 07:42 PM by therookie | 6 comments »

So I started getting into woodworking and bought a hand plane. So as soon as I got home I wanted to use it, so I put a peice of wood in my vise and started planeing. Five minutes later, my bench was four feet farther forward than it originally started. So I moved it back and kept going. Well I have done that for the past year and a half, and have decided enough is enough. So while I was in school I designed a Work Bench. Here are the specs on the bench:1. The bench is four feet deep, six feet...

11-21-2010 06:43 PM by Matt Vredenburg | 2 comments »

Wow, how time flies by when you get frustrated with a project and set it aside. It’s over a year since I started this blog series and it’s time to finish my project and close this chapter of the blog. Here are few pictures of the rod guides that I tied and ended up removing and re-tying. With all the practice, I think I have the the hang of it. Practice makes perfect.
