My 1st Attempt at Greene and Greene Style Furniture #1: The Beginning - With help from Darrell Peart

11-07-2010 09:35 PM by Don | 8 comments »

I’ve been an admirer of Greene and Greene style of furniture for a long time. I love the soft edges and exposed joinery and I think Greene and Greene were masters at proportions which is where I feel I am the weakest when it comes to design. I’ve been wanting to take my woodworking up a notch and try something a little more challenging than the stuff I’ve been doing and improve my design skills so I’d been looking for an appropriate project. When I read Darrell Peart’s articles in Woodworking...

Finishing Tips #1: Blotch Control (Homemade)

03-24-2011 07:45 AM by pjones46 | 21 comments »

I have been working on a project in Cherry and before I finished the desks I decided to try out some of the General Finishes Dye stain but on the scrap test pieces the blotching was driving me nuts. I came to this site and tried all the suggestions until I came across the discussion proclaiming that Charles Neil’s pre stain conditioner was the way to go. Bought some, tried it and still had minor blotching but it works well. Watching his video he said it was a water based PVA enhanced pro...

Layered epoxy inlay #1: The idea and the start

12-31-2011 06:44 AM by JoeyG | 15 comments »

Here I go again. I have had a idea for a while. It began with my first wood inlay. I wanted to do more. I wanted more colors, more this, more that. So I searched for idea’s and found people who did inlays on gourds. So I looked and read, and said, “Hey, I can do that in wood.” After doing a few of these I still wanted more. More color, etc.. So for Christmas I get this fancy new Dremel with all the attachments, and I say to myself “Now I can do more.” ...

Grinder Sculpting #2: design and layout

12-18-2011 07:46 PM by JoeyG | 16 comments »

First lets start with the work horses. I picked these up at Klingspore. It’s my local woodworking shop but I have also gotten them from the box stores. These are 50 and 80 grit. I will use the 80 on this project. The mahogany should be soft enough for it. I want to do one in purpleheart soon so I picked up the 50. If you haven’t worked with purpleheart, it is one hard wood, but that is a blog for another time. LOL. Here you see that I laid out a simple grid pattern over ...

09-18-2011 04:53 AM by Wes Grimes | 9 comments »

I don’t know what time it is!!! If only I had a clock!But not just any clock. A four foot long digital clock made out of antique mahogany wood. Guess it is time to make some sawdust! I bought a board of reclaimed mahogany from woodcraft: Then I created a pattern for the led segments: I used a scroll saw to cut the segments out of the wood, and a plunge router to hollow out the back side of the wood: Add some wood varnish to the top side: I used little pieces of brass supe...
