Entry Closet Project #8: The End is Here!

2418 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 31 comments »

Finished! Well it’s been a long journey and it did not end without one extra push. I finished installing the copper handles Monday by 11:30. There was a couple of scratches but I was certain I could buff them out. This is a skill that goes with the territory. I worked on the finish for the next six hours and I could not get the finish to blend. How to Remove a Scratch- After exhausting all other options this is what I resorted to today: Yes you are seeing it correctly...

Project SC #4: Its like that and thats the way it is

1471 days ago by BritBoxmaker | 31 comments »

So 1st fallback reached yesterday. I have to border the pattern. For the pattern glue-ups I used a traditional glue, PVA. This is good for this purpose but if I had mitred all edges (and the top) the tiny 1mm squares at each corner might not have held on at all. Worse still is the possibility that they would chip off over time. So bordered it is. Using 7mm strips of Purpleheart I set out the patterns to give me an overall idea of what it would look like. I then labelled everything s...

Jellyfish Table #5: Dying the top BLUE and spraying the lacquer

1834 days ago by Blake | 31 comments »

A friend of mine has a cabinet shop with a spray booth and was nice enough to let me play in it. These photos were all taken in his shop. Here is one of the samples we tried on a test piece. This is aniline die dissolved in alcohol. WOW, I really like the color! We used his Festool sander for the final sanding. I had to stir the dye for over an hour. On goes the die: Sanding in between coats of sanding sealer and lacquer: Er...

Scrap Uses

920 days ago by Roger | 30 comments »

Here’s just a few scraps that have been saved from the firepit. There’s always something you can use a cutoff, or leftover, and whatever for something useful. Maple cutoffs Thin Strips (if the scrap is large enough to be safely cut) Plywood, and 2×4’s make very nice tool holders, etc. for close-at-hand necessities And a turned hold-down knob for, well, holding something down. A good friend o mine gave me this chunk of Pine that used to be a part of a di...

Moxon Vise Benchtop Bench #2: hardware installation and more design considerations

597 days ago by lysdexic | 28 comments »

Installing the hardware was straight forward. For the fixed jaw an 1 1/2 hole is drilled and shaped to accept the nut. Then 3/4” hole goes all the way through. The 3/4” hole in the mobile jaw is elongated to prevent binding. Install both screws and done! ————————————————————————————&#...

"Art Box" Tutorial #12: Shaping

1837 days ago by Andy | 28 comments »

Updated 1/16/12 This is the fun part! Its scary too! The idea of taking a nice crisp box, one you have spent countless hours making, and attacking it with a tool designed for slag removal is…well…its a little disturbing. Maybe I was influenced by old Hitchcock movies more than I know. Seriously, what I enjoy is the freedom this gives me. Everything up to this point has been tied to measurements and careful setups. This is where we can cut loose a little. But slow down Hot...

“The Window Method” Parquetry is a geometrical form of Marquetry.

1168 days ago by Dennis Zongker | 28 comments »

This Parquetry panel is an insert for a conference table. This is the companies logo, It’s an abstract design of an Eagle. The panel size is 24” wide x 54” long. This was a very fun project, it took me around 32 hours to draw, cut, glue, and stain and finish. I used the “The Window Method” because of the long straight lines and the geometrical shapes. It’s much more accurate this way. If I was to used a scroll saw it would be very hard to keep the lines straight. 1...

Watch Box #6: Handle replaced, shaping started

955 days ago by Andy | 27 comments »

The handle.I did not like how the handle was looking, it appeared to lack any of the swirling grain that the top inset panel has. That happens sometimes after shaping, the good stuff ends up on the floor. Also… if you look close, you will notice in the picture below that I sanded too deep into the right corner of the handle and exposed the spline! Oops! So I made a new one from Black Palm Wood, a first time for me. The black color ties in with the Wenge corner splines, plus I love ...

Demilune table tops #1: Making Demilune Tables

2592 days ago by Lee A. Jesberger | 27 comments »

As you may have guessed, I make many of these tables. The practice is needed, and the combinations of woods make it very interesting. These were all made from the plexiglass templates shown. By using these templates, I can make these tops very quickly. I also have other shapes that are more complicated, which I’ll post at another time. Lee
