Homage to Trifern - attempting the 2 dye 4 vase #6: Final finish and some decent pictures

04-26-2016 03:28 AM by Mike_D_S | 2 comments »

I finally ended up with 6 coats of Arm-R-Seal Poly in semi-gloss, giving it a light sanding after the last 3 coats with a 320 pad. I liked the look, but wanted just a bit more gloss, so I gave it two quick coats of spray lacquer in gloss. Now it’s looks good and the finish is glass smooth mostly. The really nice finish actually highlights some of the small imperfections in the turning, but you have to be looking up close to see them. I tried taking some pics using different lights...

Curved Front End Table #5: Maple Back and Curved Cherry Top

04-23-2016 11:52 AM by Guy Dunlap | 2 comments »

In this episode, I make the back from some maple stock. The back is ship lapped and will be installed in a groove in the back legs I also make a solid cherry top with a curved front. Now I will say I completely screw up the first attempt by, well just being really stupid and not paying attention to what I was doing, and using the wrong bit in my router. I do show how I recover from this mistake in the end. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! To keep up with what I’...

Stickley No. 622 Trestle Table #3: Leg and support joinery

04-21-2016 04:29 PM by Tooch | 2 comments »

After fixing the holes in the legs, it was time to square up the top supports and begin on the large motise and tenon joints on the underbracing. I started by finding the center of the supports and measuring out from there: After that, I carefully marked out what needed to be removed: I used a combination of a 3/8” mortise bit (for the corners), a 2” forstener bit (for the large middle section), and a hand chisel to clean up everything else. A dado bit on th...

Cherry Nightstand #1: Design!

04-19-2016 12:05 AM by ilyac | 0 comments »

So being that this is my first entry into the realm of real furniture making I wanted to make sure I was diligent in my design step. As such I did the whole design in SketchUp first. - I will be making this with a combination of cherry and maple. Maple is just for the side of the drawers to add a little contrast.- The frame is assembled with mortise and tenon joints and the top is going to be laminated with a few pieces. The little panels are going to be solid cherry, even though looking b...

Curved Front End Table #4: Fitting Doors, Curved & Veneered Drawer

04-09-2016 10:29 AM by Guy Dunlap | 2 comments »

In this video, I cut the curved door panels to size using the bending form I used to create them. Then I cut the veneer for the edge banding, and install it on the doors to give the illusion that they are a solid bent panel. Then install the hinges and hang them. After the doors are hung, I can start working on the curved drawer front. I cut the face of the curve on a large blank and them create the half blind dovetails for the sides. I then veneer the face of the drawer front so that the ...

Shoulder plane

04-08-2016 02:01 AM by madts | 2 comments »

This post is dedicated to my good Danish pal Mads. I was in Denmark this winter as my dad was ailing and did die.He was 92 and he wanted to go.While i was there I got to visit with Mads, which is always great. At that visit he gave me this. This was a challenge to me as I have always wanted to make a shoulder plane.I had some repurposed maple doors that I used. I had to glue several pieces together to make the body. After the glue up I did the geometry and made some cuts and s...

Curved Front End Table #3: Internal Shelf, Divider and Glue Up

03-26-2016 12:29 PM by Guy Dunlap | 6 comments »

Now that I know the thickness of the doors, I can start working on the internal structure of the piece. I have to account for being able to put the lower shelf and divider for the drawer being put into the piece after glue up, so I have to do some unconventional things to get it to work. After I get those made, I taper the legs and do the initial glue up. Then I modify my bending jig to make the cut to separate the curved front into two doors. As always, I welcome your questions and commen...

Finishing #1: Blotch Control

03-20-2016 07:24 PM by OSU55 | 2 comments »

Blotching is uneven coloring on the substrate, and wood is the substrate I am discussing here. There are many ways to change the look of wood – dyes, dye stain, pigment stain, and variations of both (paint, glazes, and pigment only stains primarily sit on top of the wood and obscure it some or completely, and are not relevant to this discussion). I will simply refer to using all of these as coloring the wood, since the best method to control all of them is the same. I will discuss readi...
