Finishing Tips #2: Hide Glue Wash Mix for Cherry

04-22-2011 05:42 AM by pjones46 | 15 comments »

Hide Glue Wash Mix for Cherry I read somewhere that a thinned Hide glue wash was at one time used as a preconditioned to cure blotching so have taken 2oz of Titebond Liquid Hide Glue and mixed it with 12 oz of water as a second test. The reason also for choosing the liquid hide was it was more transparent vs being a cloudy white when mixed with water and this I felt would dry more transparent. Anyway, I sanded my sample board with 220 as prep, applied a liberal coat of the hide glue was...

DESIGNS FOR WOOD STRIPS #2: Rainbow Box Progress

04-16-2011 04:05 AM by BertFlores58 | 6 comments »

The choice is right for my strips—the rainbow box. The strips is compose of 9 kind of woods but not really hard but just right on my visual of a darkening hue arrangement. It looks like a monochromatic colors. Everybody likes contrast in wood, however I found that most melancholic effect comes from a slowly darkening colors. At this time, I will reverse my presentation.. It will be inverted. Whatever present from the time I posted the blog, the first paragraph will be present co...

Marshmallow Catapult

When I pulled this off of my cabinet, I did not expect so many would like to build these. Well, I took one apart so that we could make some notes – and then detail construction. Below: The marshmallow catapult in it’s finished form. As you can see below, the catapult concists of only 6 wooden parts & some miscellaneous hardware, all easy to build with handtools if need be. When we did this project with the scouts, we put it together as a kit that they could sand &#...

It is very common for everyone to have wood scraps of different sizes and just turned out to become a boards cutting conventional to endgrain. I noticed that if there are angles involved in joining a wood with parallel grains will be stronger. The warping movement is not visible and the strength of gluing is increased. Unlike the crossboard gluing (or straight gluing…) crack will be present in some cases. Here are series of design that are so simple to make and gluing is also very s...

SPIRAL DESIGN #7: Hexaspiral box - Slicing using Japanese saw

04-12-2011 04:12 PM by BertFlores58 | 3 comments »

Pulling a saw was not easy as it seem. I already sliced the hexaspiral into 3 coaster like pieces. Even though I am experienced in ripping by hand, I still have some difficulty. The saw try to bend inwards or outwards making uneven cut. I was expecting this and so I gave an allowance of 9mm thick to at least have a final thickness of 8 or less after grinding. So here are they…. Here is the thickness photo…. The one that is darker is already coated with sanding seale...

Circle cutting #10: Arc cutting like Patron does.

04-06-2011 07:17 AM by degoose | 5 comments »

Due to the fact that some of my boards have curves ends … I need to make another jig… this one for cutting arcs… to start with I need to decide how the arc would look… so a test jig was made… Hole were drilled at various places so the jig can pivot on the bolt in the centre part of the circle cutting jig….. a fence attached and then the distance from the pin to the blade was adjusted to see how the different curves would look.. After several test cuts...
