Life happenings #1: What a load

08-04-2016 02:02 PM by JimDaddyO | 3 comments »

Making use of things other people have no use for. There is a sawmill about an hour away from me. It is run by some Mennonites and they work hard making harvesting and milling logs into what we are all here for. Beautiful boards and timbers with which we use to make our projects. But there is a lot of the tree that is just not useful for sale for this purpose. What to do with the waste? Well in this instance, I heat my home with it. All the slab wood and off cuts are offered up for s...

Shop stuff #53: For Sara conclusion

07-12-2016 04:29 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

More trials and tribulations finishing up the box I made for my daughter. In the end it all worked out though. I did have a bit of a conflict putting it up. Seems it can not be shown in Germany as there is a copyright issue with the part of the song I used at the end. It is not like I am making any money doing this. My channel is very small with few subscribers as I don’t promote it much. I am not good at the whole social media thing and not much of a promoter. I just do it for...

Humidor build #3: -Finish

07-06-2016 08:54 PM by Drew Gregory | 1 comment »

So far this project has been an excellent learning process, when it came time to finishing that was no exception. The client was looking for a “super glossy” look to the box. I decided to use a tung oil from Lee valley. The process was very simple. The lid to the humidor has some very fine figure to it so I wont up sanding it to 800 grit to remove all sanding marks. The rest of the box I sanded to 500 grit. I applied a thick first coat and let it soak in for about 10 minu...

Building a Cherry Queen Bed #4: Side Rails, Center Rail, and Slats

07-05-2016 05:21 PM by jonah | 2 comments »

After getting the headboard finished, I started on the side rails. I’d been thinking throughout the process about a way to get the mortises for the hardware into the end of the side rails, and I hadn’t come up with anything. I was trying to avoid routing sideways, which seemed absurdly dangerous, difficult, and generally a Bad Idea with my heavy router. If I had one of those lighter compact plunge routers I might have considered it, but my Ridgid router weighs a heck of a lot and ...

Humidor build #1: Building my first humidor #2

06-29-2016 06:46 PM by Drew Gregory | 3 comments »

A little progress update here. I lined the box with spanish cedar, starting with the bottom then the walls and finally the lid. I’m quite happy with how it turned out all pieces are a tight fit and held in place with a couple dots of epoxy. After getting the box lined I fine tuned the fit using my no.5 1/2 which worked really well, better than expected. Time to get the lid attached, thanks to some excellent advice: Well, she s looking good so far! A couple of tips in de...

Attaching the Legs & Playing with Milk Paint

06-29-2016 11:14 AM by Tooch | 4 comments »

Before attaching the legs, I had a lot of work to do to prep the table top for finishing. Even though it was on the underside, I still wanted to eliminate all the dried glue, so I busted out the card scraper and got to work. Before: After: That’s a lot of chips! Last thing was to cut the top to final length, which I side using a Craftsmen circular saw. Although it was really getting bogged down on the 8/4” oak, it managed to get the job done. Then I predrille...

Humidor build #2: Building my first humidor #1

06-28-2016 02:44 AM by Drew Gregory | 2 comments »

A friend asked me to make a humidor for him after seeing some of my other projects. Having never made one, of course I said yes.Started off with a simple rabbit joint for the box frame. Added some maple trim on the corners and brought it down flush with my no.5 1/2 Added a walnut ply in a rabbit to the top and bottom Next up the top and bottom caps at 3/8” thick This walnut crotch is from a 4/4 chunk that I book matched to give it a subtle nod to a tobacc...
