Greene inspired Night Stand #4: Milling Legs

02-10-2008 11:54 PM by ChicoWoodnut | 5 comments »

The weekend here in Northern California has been extraordinary. Spring is in the air. A pesky mocking bird has been trying to imitate my router. Although I had indicated that I would start making templates for the cloudlift panels, I decided to start milling the legs this weekend. There were two reasons. 1. It was the right place to start. 2. I had to buy a 1/4” slot cutting bit for the panel grooves. The local supplier (Western Tool) had the bit and arbor but not the corr...

Review of Tropical Exotic Hardwoods of Latin America

03-12-2012 02:08 AM by jusfine | 6 comments »

As we were taking in some rays in the Palm Springs area last month, I had the urge to see some lumber or tools, and realized it was not a long drive to Carlsbad California to the Tropical Exotic Hardwoods supplier. Their website is here It was relatively easy to find with GPS, and the warehouse was large and well lit. There were a few customers while we were there (about an hour), but it was not really busy – it was a week day around lunch time. They had ...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #29: Tip of the Day!!!

10-20-2014 05:41 PM by PhilBello | 3 comments »

The weather seems to have gone from bad to worse, at least the cars have stayed dry! So the only work I have been doing is reclaiming some mahogany timbers that were left in the garden by the previous owner, to rot, and after cleaning them up, they turned out to be well seasoned usable timber, which only needed a few nail holes filling, after which I have used them both for making window sills and shelving. All of which I have left natural, and used my home made beeswax polish to bring out bo...

Desk rebuild #6: Finish Applied

09-28-2009 06:40 AM by Ben | 5 comments »

So I now have my first experience with Waterlox finish, and am reasonably happy with the results. I brushed it on, but eventually gave up and shifted to a rag. It is a bit unforgiving with drips and streaks, but I think I fixed a few bad layers with some sandpaper. Only time will tell if it will be durable enough to protect from scratches. One question remains – what type of wood comprises this desk? This desk was once in the Swedish embassy (40-50 years ago), and had since been ...

Beads Box #2: Laminated Sides are Cut

03-09-2009 05:32 PM by PurpLev | 4 comments »

So I’m very excited about this project as this is the first project that I’m using hardwoods on (everything prior was mainly plywood based except for face frames and other accents). So this weekend I had the chance to start working on this project, and start using my short-lumber-supply. I had my eye set on a piece of (what I thought was a) cherry that was just right in dimensions for the sides of this box. it was about 16” tall (to accommodate for the 12” tall box)...

Dining table inspired by the Greene & Greene Thorsen table #19: Finish Sanding and Assembly of the Bases Plus Some Ebony Plugs

07-30-2017 04:04 AM by TungOil | 16 comments »

In preparation for glue up I sand all the parts with 120 then 220 using a random orbit sander. I split the work between the Bosch ROS65EVS which is a nice sander to use (very little vibration) and the smaller Bosch ROS20EVS which is more like a palm sander in ROS format and better for the smaller parts. To clean up the round overs and other details I have a few sanding blocks I like as well as the ubiquitous folded sheet. It’s boring work but crucial to getting a nice finish later. ...
