1700 lbs Black Oak Burl

04-07-2011 05:31 PM by OregonBurls | 15 comments »

Just started cutting into this burl. Incredible! I am not sure if I am going to cut table slabs or block it up for turners. Time will tell. Enjoy! I need to ask a favor of my friends here. Would you go to Face Book and do a search for “Oregon Burls” and Become my friend there. It would help lots. ThanksGregwww.OregonBurls.com PS Check out my new Website!!!

My 1st Attempt at Greene and Greene Style Furniture #15: Lagavulin

02-14-2011 06:14 AM by Don | 8 comments »

I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the completion of a project like this than my favorite 16 year old single malt… Except for maybe my favorite Anejo: Things I learned:- Green and Greene were some amazing designers. I already knew this but I have a much better understanding now.- So is Darrell Peart.- The Hall brothers deserve far more recognition than they get. If you don’t know who the Hall brothers are then read Darrells book.- Measure 3 times, cut once. Twic...

My 1st Attempt at Greene and Greene Style Furniture #14: Ebony Pulls

02-07-2011 04:03 AM by Don | 6 comments »

Ebony pulls are done and mounted. I even got the first coat of finish on them. I almost had to call this blog entry “Scewup #2”. I drilled the holes for the screws to mount the pulls about 1/8” off center. It wasn’t enough to allow the screw to pop through but it was close enough breath a sigh of relief when I noticed it. Here’s one of the pulls installed on a drawer and still a little wet from the wipe on poly: And the jig I used to drill the holes: ...

My 1st Attempt at Greene and Greene Style Furniture #13: Hickory Pulls

02-06-2011 06:15 AM by Don | 2 comments »

Yea, I know these are supposed to be made out of Ebony but I don’t cut anything out of ebony until I’ve practiced it a bunch with Hickory. It took a number of tries to get the drill press setup just right but this was otherwise pretty easy to make. Tommorrow I’ll attempt to make the real ones and if all goes well then my next blog will be titled “Ebony Pulls”, if not it will be titled “Screwup #2”...

Sandpaper Storage Cabinet #1: Sandpaper Storage Cabinet-1

02-05-2011 08:36 PM by Huckleberry | 3 comments »

This is a versatile little cabinet in which you can store whatever your heart desires in it. The overall dimensions for this project is 21”w x 11 ¼”d x 13 ¼” h. Of course if you need something bigger than make it bigger, or to fit your needs. I am using Baltic Birch for mine but use whatever material you feel like using. As always if you have any questions email them to me at askhuck@hucksdiy.com.—http://blip.tv/file/4726686

My 1st Attempt at Greene and Greene Style Furniture #12: Working on the Finish

01-31-2011 05:48 AM by Don | 9 comments »

The more I looked at the tops the less I liked how much lighter they were than the rest of the tables. I decided to go ahead and dye the tops according to the instructions. I’m really glad I did, the tops are blending much better and I’m really liking the way dye looks compared to stains. I may even dye the rest of the table to get it all to blend together better. I normally love the varience of colors in wood when it’s finished naturally but in this case I think it distract...

Help with a good secondary wood

01-30-2011 03:56 AM by ocwoodworker | 3 comments »

Hey Lumberjock friends!! I’m building a walnut lowboy entertainment center and wanted to use a secondary wood for the drawer bottoms. I know the usual suspect would be poplar but I’m looking for something with good grain structure but cheap. (Are the two even possible?) I tried Charles Neil blotch control for Baltic birch plywood but alas it still takes a stain/dye poorly. Any success stories out there?

My 1st Attempt at Greene and Greene Style Furniture #11: Almost there...

01-24-2011 06:00 AM by Don | 6 comments »

All that’s left is drawer pulls, the bottom shelfs, and a few more coats of finish. I decicded to stick with a natural finish and I’m glad I did but the tops came out way lighter than the rest of it. I will probobly put some dye on it to help it blend better. Here’s one of the tables with the first coat of finish:
