Building my version of the Essential Tool Chest #8: Finished

03-21-2015 01:30 AM by johnstoneb | 2 comments »

Finshed. While applying the finish I realized there was no hardware on the lid for opening it. It is exactly the same size as the box. The only way to open was friction on the sides of the lid.I laid one of the drawer pulls on top of the lid and it looked pretty good. I took an extra couple of days and ordered another drawer ring for the lid. After the last coat of shellac I epoxied in the escutcheon for the locks. The drawer pull came in today. The box has 2 coats of amber shella...

Incra Double Dovetail Project #7: Finishing and Finished!

11-10-2011 05:11 PM by SPHinTampa | 2 comments »

I have been sanding as the project progressed so I am able to hand sand 180 grit and then 220 grit. I then finish with three coats of rub on poly. Let the piece sit for a couple of weeks to wait for the finish to fully cure and then rub out any dust nubs with 0000 steel wool. Finally, I use my Beall Buffing system to buff out the finish. Use the red tripoli finish first, followed by white diamond compound and finally wax. To be honest, I should have sanded to 320 to really se...

Project 365 #4: days 63 & 64, camera phones eye view

03-06-2011 05:13 AM by scottb | 2 comments »

Pardon the sometimes slightly out of focus glimpse of these little, teeny tiny bowls coming to life. It probably has more to do with the coating of dust on my face shield than all them mega pixels crammed into my pocket. (Which out snaps my first TWO digital cameras.).. Anywho, our fellow lumberjock Karson sent me a lovely box-o-wood, and asked if I’d turn out a couple of cousins of this little beauty: We’d both figured these would come up as projects in my “next&#...

Steam Bending #3: Steam Bending Trout Fishing Nets: Shaping and Finishing

10-18-2012 02:11 AM by Retsof | 2 comments »

It’s been a while since I posted my last update on this project and I’ve made a lot of progress. Once I got the basic shaping and sanding done, I had to stop until I found the net bags that I wanted to use on the frames. As of this week, I have everything I need to finish the nets, so here are some more photos to show you what I’ve done so far: Here is net #2 after bending, but before glue up. This photo gives a good look at how I pegged my circles to the melamine ba...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #2: Still gathering supplies

02-20-2015 09:33 PM by ic3ss | 2 comments »

So this is taking too long, I’m impatient. I called the wood supplier last week and was told that more 8/4 hard maple would be in the store on Tuesday. I called Tuesday and was told Wednesday. Called Wednesday and was told Thursday. I give up, so I went south to anther supplier in Eugene and I was only able to find one suitable board to complete the legs and one really nice 8/4 piece of walnut for the chop and the deadman. While I was there I got a call from the shop in portland that th...
