Jewelry Cabinet #3: First Stage Glue up complete

1126 days ago by Devin | 1 comment »

Well…that took a lot longer than I expected. You’d think by now I’d remember that milling the lumber and cutting the joinery is only about the first 25% of the job. The bulk of the effort follows as you make the final adjustments, the final shaping, fine tune the details and then actually sand all the parts, glue up and sand again (and then repair the 6 dings/dents that somehow found their way onto my finished work, thank god for wet rags and irons). And I still have to p...

Natural Edged Maple Burl Bowl I Saw

1454 days ago by WoodArtbyJR | 0 comments »

On my way from the ferry to the Sounders game yesterday my wife & I passed a Woodworking Store (in the Pioneer Square area of Seattle on First) that sold handcrafted items. Displayed in the window was a natural edged maple burl bowl probably close to 20” in dia & close to 12” high that was simply GEORGOUS. The chest it was sitting on was beautiful as well. It was in the same shape as my maple bowl I just posted. I told my wife that the cost of the burl alone was severa...

Flag Box #2: Sanding, Rabbets, Sample Colors, 22.5 Degree Miters

686 days ago by DBoltz | 0 comments »

Since we left off last time, I got the voids in the wood filled in with CA glue and the boards are sanded to 150 grit so far. I used my block plane to get the trim close to the side pieces. My FIL did not have much in the way of woodworking tools. He did have a Skil 1/4 sheet sander. My MIL wanted me to have it. I thought it would be appropriate to use that sander on his flag box. You can see the sander in the background here. Sanded to 150 grit here. Here you can see the trim c...

not so Koshuo Bench #3: Bench Seat Taper

791 days ago by AKSteve | 0 comments »

I Finally got some time to work on the Bench today ! woo hoo ! I scraped and sanded the top and bevelled the bottom half of the seat, I did it all manually with a smoother planer, block planer, and a japanese saw. The supports for the Cross braces for the Beams turned out nice, I love to do it by hand, it is so much fun! and it looks really nice, pictures tomorrow. I am building the Cross beams right now and I am not to sure about the design yet, I like it but it’s just not complete to ...

Building Baby Stokes' 3-in-1 Crib #9: Spindles, Panels and Splines

961 days ago by Will Stokes | 0 comments »

With the cherry frame more or less completed, it was time to turn my attention to the maple spindles, panels, and splines. My Dad helped me pick boards and layout the various parts, then cut, rip, and plane them all down to size. I felt terrible milling down 4/4 stock down to 1/2”. In the future, provided I get a band saw capable of resawing, I think I might use 8/4 stock and resaw down to three 1/2” boards. Oh well, there’s always something to try in the futu...

Rottenstone Problems

1636 days ago by GoGoZRX | 0 comments » I picked up some 4F pumice and some rottenstone… I sanded to 400, then used the pumice. I put some of the paraffin oil on a rag, and sprinkled on the pumice. Needless to say, I was quite surprised when the white powder turned ashy, but I cranked up the speed on the lathe and went at it. In short order, the surface was gleaming!“I can’t wait to try out the rottenstone!” Or so I thought… it seems to have gotten into the ?pores? of the ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #235: Two Designs Completed

1265 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Well, the cats are still alive. When I awoke this morning, all the electronics seem to be working. Nothing was chewed. No one got sick on the floor (that I have seen.) The water dish was only dragged slightly from its normal place, with only a little water spilled. It’s going to be a good day! :D There is another 4-5 inches of snow on the ground this morning (more flurries!) and it is really looking pretty outside. I need to go to the post office today though to mail out an order....
