Jewelry Case Build #10: Installing Doors, Final Sanding, Applying Finish

28 days ago by RoadHogg | 2 comments »

I’m so close to finishing this little project. I looked back at the date on the beginning of this blog series and it’s nearly 70 days ago! Today I fussed with the little doors, getting them aligned as best as I can. There must be some trick to this that I’m missing, if anyone knows, please let me know! I had applied a coat of Boiled Linseed Oil a while ago so once the assembly was complete, I sanded everything to 360 grit. The fine sanding dust mixed with the BLO m...

Child's Table and Chairs

31 days ago by sgmdwk | 5 comments »

It has been quite a while since I posted anything on LJ. My time has been filled with more physical activities: hiking and bicycling. Living in the Pacific Northwest, there is a lot of competition for my time. Anyway, I just finished the present I am giving to my granddaughter for her first birthday: a small table and a pair of child-sized chairs. The chairs and the table legs and skirts are made from pine; the table top from hard maple. I used a variety of joinery methods on the l...

Jewelry Case Build #9: Assembly and Hinges

32 days ago by RoadHogg | 2 comments »

Today I began assembly. Everything went really well. One small error I had to fix, Once the glue was dry, I noticed the little drawers were slightly proud of the side panel. This would prevent the door from closing. I just took out each drawer and sanded a bit off the face. They fit fine now. I had to chisel out eight tiny hinge mortises. I’ve also never done those before. They turned out quite nice. I only have to do a final fit on the doors and screw them into place then ...

Jewelry Case Build #8: Glass and Mirrors

34 days ago by RoadHogg | 0 comments »

Among the new skills I’ve learned in this project, I learned the basics behind cutting glass. This project has two glass panel doors, one glass panel side and two mirrors, set into frames. To my surprise and delight, cutting glass is really quite easy. I won’t go into that detail here but suffice to say if you are thinking about cutting your own glass, do it! Once I cut all the glass and mirrors, I epoxied them into the frames. The mirrors were easy as the backs aren’...

Jewelry Case Build #7: Tiny Drawers and BLO to Finish

35 days ago by RoadHogg | 0 comments »

I wasn’t intending to start applying finish just yet but once I started with the Boiled Linseed Oil, I couldn’t stop. The Walnut just came alive in that beautiful rich tone that I just love. I had been assembling the small drawers and I needed to glue the walnut fronts to the maple drawer boxes. I knew I needed to apply finish to the maple before installing the fronts otherwise getting any finish in there would be almost impossible. I went ahead and applied BLO to the little d...

Recycle Bowling Alley Lanes #1: Bowling Alley Material

I have the opportunist to purchase Maple bowling alley 20 foot sections. I’m curious if anyone has used this material before and if so, for what. Obviously butcher block tops come to mind. $200/section.

Just a video of me and the wooden beard and hair combs that I make.

37 days ago by BTimmons | 16 comments »

I met a local videographer and had a blast shooting this video! It’s more of a general overview of me and how I got started doing what I do. A step by step tutorial it’s not, but I’m extremely happy with how it came out and I think it’s just really cool to see myself working in the third person! Hopefully you all enjoy this too! Thanks, here’s the link! http://vimeo.com/98821147

Jewelry Case Build #6: Tiny Drawers, Tiny Rabbets, Tiny Dados!

39 days ago by RoadHogg | 1 comment »

Continuing with the tiny drawers, of which there are six, I constructed a little “cabinet” for them to sit in. They basically just sit on little shelves, negating the need for slides etc, which in this case, are not at all practical due to the size of this case. Nothing rocket science here, just fiddling with 12 little drawer fronts/backs and 12 little drawer sides. All 24 pieces got a small rabbet in the bottom edge and the sides each got rabbets in the ends where they will m...
