A Guitar for Daniel #5: The first 90% of the project...

12-18-2012 04:50 PM by Dan Lyke | 2 comments »

...takes 90% of the time. The remaining 10% of the project takes an additional 90% of the time. So it feels like we’re closing in, but finishing and hardware installation are still going to take a little while. Sunday morning Daniel was off partying with friends in San Francisco. I went out to the shop and did a bunch of shaping, and then Charlene and I went over to Tall Toad Music and, with the help of the very friendly staff there, dug through the basement ‘til we found ...

Finishing Info for the Woodworker #1: What are the differences between stains and dyes

01-09-2015 09:41 PM by pjones46 | 2 comments »

What are the differences between stains and dyes? Very simply put: With stains, the pigment tends to remain on the surface of the wood and lodge in the pores, while dyes penetrate deeply and color the wood from within. Dyes Dyes are colorants that are usually mixed in a carrier vehicle (solvents) such as mineral spirits, water or alcohol. The dyes used in woodworking are characterized as transparent, as they bring about color changes in wood without obscuring the figure. The molecula...

Chi Omega Dorm Room #3: Bunk Prototypes

06-10-2009 02:28 PM by Chris Davis | 2 comments »

Here are the two designs for the bunk beds. I’ll eventually build 3 of one style and 4 of the other. The first on has a headboard similar to the single prototype that I built. The only difference is there is no fixed shelf at the top. I made it adjustable because of headroom. I also put an adjustable shelf at the bottom also. The second one is a bookcase design. I tried to keep the same style. I lowered the height of the headboard and built a couple bookcases for each level....

Speaker Stands #1: Day 1

07-24-2011 08:04 AM by SoCalDJ | 2 comments »

Well today I started the project. I needed to make some speaker stands for my surround channels. I thought the options online were either stupidly expensive ($500 for some 4/4 Walnut really stands, Really?) or just ugly so I decided to make my own. I took inspiration from our new couch and used the baseball stitching in the leather to create design with contrasting walnut and maple. Today I spent the day milling the lumber (Just got a new old jointer :), Bridgewood 6”) and ...

Wine Rack Expedition #5: Glass racks

03-31-2009 06:03 AM by Demowen | 2 comments »

Well folks, I think it was another productive day in the shop. The objective today was to get all of the parts created, but not necesarrily 100% ready for glue up or finish sanding. Misson accomplished- sort of. The first obstacle was to figure out how I wanted to join the wine glass holder rails. They are positioned horizontally (like a shelf) where all the rest of the rails to this point have been vertical (like a skirt table). I’ve been using a self-centering doweling jig fo...
