oak box #10: coat of wet finish

258 days ago by Dan'um Style | 6 comments »

Sanded this one to 150 grit and figured a good wet coat of lacquer might bring out the grain a bit. The rosewood and turquoise together for the photo. Will glue last. The turquoise is from eBay China. Fun stuff.

Pochade Box in progress #3: Pallette, trim and oil

264 days ago by Jon1094 | 4 comments »

Yesterday I completed the combination pallete and wet canvase holder. It is constucted out of birch plywood with oak inserts for holding the wet canvases. The pallete is finished with two coats of BLO. It is shown out of the box with an inserted canvase and inside the box with the pallete in view. I trimmed the drawers with walnut and put two coats of Danish oil on the box. I’ll let the oil dry for three or four days and then finish with satin wipe on polyurethane. ...

Power Tools #1: Shopsmith Mark V Restoration

270 days ago by Jerry | 22 comments »

Please don’t laugh, I know all of you out there have “real” power woodworking tools. I could not afford the stuff I wanted as I’m just getting started, and I thought a used Shopsmith might be a good way to get going fast. So I bought this 1954 Shopsmith Mark V on Craigslist for $200.00. After I got it home, it promptly started making all kinds of terrible racket, and I discovered that I had bought $200.00 worth of junk, well almost. I found a place where I cou...

Gun Showcase/Coffee Table #1: Gun showcase/Coffee Table

270 days ago by vpbarnwood | 1 comment »

Here is an idea for gun owners that don’t have a gun case or space for a wall gun case. That being said it is not just for guns, you can display just anything that will fit in the case, such as coins, knick knacks, precious mementos. The dimensions are 5’ by 2’ by 18” when it will be finished. There will also be a drawer under the showcase in the center of the table. The wood used is reclaimed barn wood from my barn.

Pochade Box in progress #2: mechanism, woodburning and handle

271 days ago by Jon1094 | 1 comment »

I completed the mechanism for the inside of the box lid and fit it to to canvasse boards that it will hold. I believe they are 12”X9? I built the cover for the top out of baltic birch ply and chamfered the edges to make it a bit more sleek. I put my artistic abilities to the test and printed off a quote from the English illustrator Arthur Rackham. I made sure the font was something attractive but would still be easy to burn. I printed the quote out and taped it to graphite transfer...

...in Which Tim Builds a Saw Bench (Part 3)

274 days ago by Tim Anderson | 5 comments »

And so we move on to the conclusion of this new useful work surface. When we last left the saw bench, it was dry fitted and ready for gluing. I then added some glue (quite a bit for some of my sloppier joints, and glued the whole thing together. I actually found that the bench was very stable once glued despite my somewhat sloppy joints, so I didn’t need to do any reinforcing beneath. After that, I found that it was a far cry from flat, so I had to spend quite a lot of time getting the ...

Sister's Remodel #3: Pantry 3

291 days ago by Nate Meadows | 10 comments »

Well, I am still sitting here in the hospital next to my beautiful wife. It was a long night, but the good news is that her pain is under control and that she is getting excellent care. Its really just a waiting game, letting the pancreas decide when it wants to stop attacking itself! Anyway, back to the pantry. I took a side trip to work on the Lazy Susan Tables. Before I go there though I must address one issue. When I am creating something, anything, a thousand things run through my min...
