No more brushing Lacquer

09-20-2018 08:42 PM by Woodwrecker | 5 comments »

My good friend Barry Reiter, who is an “elder” in our woodworkers guild (CFWG.ORG), and a retired chemical engineer put on a presentation last week on spraying lacquer.His depth of knowledge and experience made the presentation very enjoyable and I learned a lot.I hope there is a part 2 and maybe 3, because the hour allotted just wasn’t long enough. Anyway, I got the bug for trying out what I learned, and the next day in the shop I took out my little detail HVLP 4oz spray...

Life happenings #12: The bathroom disaster.

09-12-2018 11:36 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I was debating on weather I ought to put this in here, but there is a lot of working with wood in it, along with a lot of other things, so why not. A couple of weeks ago we had a fitting fail in our master bathroom. We had to pull everything out of the room to gain access to the leak. Well, my wife has been wanting to remodel the bathroom for the last 16 years, so while everything is out of it, why not? Other than it’s a ton of work and expense. I am posting the first 3 videos, d...

How I made #8: Makeup mirror with LED light

09-04-2018 12:18 PM by WoodenWorldDenic | 2 comments »

On video Making a Makeup mirror with LED light you can see the entire process.The most important thing in solving this task was to find a plastic tray with a diameter of 33 cm, with sloping sides, which perfectly disperses the light. In addition, the tray has the necessary firmness to prevent twisting, and all for less than $ 2 :-)a piece of chipboard as a base for the mirror Two slats and a piece of 8mm plywood connected by 8 mm diameter wooden wedges, is a mirror support. Assembling ...

transforming wing back leather chairs into custom rocker for cabin #2: Working out the rocker radius by trial and error.

09-03-2018 09:41 AM by small_shop | 0 comments »

The radius on the original design was 60”. This was figured from a finished seat height of 20” x pi. The speed of the rocking motion was too fast, and the finished seat height was too high also. I shortened the radius of the rocker from 60” to 42”. This meant back to the drawing board on the design of the rockers, but the improvement of the rocking motion was well worth it! Now, it feels more like a rocking chair should. Good slow smooth rock, and a stable feeli...

transforming wing back leather chairs into custom rocker for cabin #1: This is the steps we took on whether or not to even move ahead with this project.

09-03-2018 08:42 AM by small_shop | 0 comments »

A friend of mine owns a local cabinet shop. He has a friend who he has done several jobs for in the past, and the friend of my friend is building a cabin for the purpose of renting out for a vacation get away had the idea to get these chairs and transform them into rockers. To see if it was even doable, we made a simple template and clamped it onto the legs to see how the chair would respond to rockers, and we liked it! I have never made rockers before, and was unsure of a lot of d...

Shop stuff #135: Roubo build Pt 6

09-02-2018 03:23 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

There really is a lot of work gets done in the 12 minutes this video runs. Not a lot to show for it but a nice, fairly square slab top for the Roubo bench. A bit of a treat at the end to show what is in the future of this build. Naturally while this work goes on there is also a heat wave with high humidity going on. That makes it short days in the shop, as soon as the sweat starts pooling in my glasses I can’t see and I call it a day….lol. View on YouTube
