Flat Screen Table Build #6: Finishing

01-16-2015 06:18 PM by Brodan | 3 comments »

With the table assembled I was ready for finishing….or I thought I was. I wanted the finish to match the end tables in our living room, which have a cherry finish. After reading about the difficulties in staining Maple without making it a splotchy mess, I asked for and received some advice from folks here on LJ. Thanks to all! Here is the unfinished table…. I was advised to leave it natural but it would not have matched the other furniture. So the first thing I did was to app...

Shop stuff #12: Fitting the book matched maple panel bottom

11-12-2015 09:18 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I am slowly catching up with editing and posting video. The bit that broke in the previous video makes its first cut and I get to use the Record 078 plane for the first time. It will take some time to get better at it, but practice, practice, practice is the way to go. I have at least a couple more videos to go on this one. I hope you enjoy it. https://youtu.be/zNOBI-wHJg0

Butterfly Dining Table #4: Base Details and Base Assembly

11-16-2015 12:16 AM by Guy Dunlap | 3 comments »

In this video, I show how I plan to use sliding dovetails for the mid span dividers, which also will house the sliding parts for the top, and then cut the sliding dovetails and make the dividers. Then I cut the slots in the end rails for the slides and glue up the end assemblies, which I might add was a grueling experience I hope I never put myself through again! I cut out the joinery for the lower rail that will connect the two curved rails and tie the whole thing together. It’s sta...

Wood Trip!! #2: Getting the Shop ready

01-23-2016 04:17 PM by Phil | 2 comments »

Now that I have all of my lumber to start my projects, I need to get my garage in order and put together the shop in the best possible layout. But the first order of business is getting my vintage craftsman jointer in working condition. Oh as a heads up I very rarely and I do mean rarely buy anything tools new. Just a waste of money that can be spent on wood and more tools, but I digress. I have a Craftsman/King Sealey 101.03582 6” jointer with a fixed infeed table and adjustable outfee...

Paduak & Maple vase #3: Finished Turning

06-16-2016 02:58 AM by Julian | 4 comments »

Haven’t worked on this project for over a week. Finished turning and now I need to seal the woodbefore I sand. The paduak sanding dust will “bleed” onto the maple if not sealed properly.

Humidor build #3: -Finish

07-06-2016 08:54 PM by Drew Gregory | 1 comment »

So far this project has been an excellent learning process, when it came time to finishing that was no exception. The client was looking for a “super glossy” look to the box. I decided to use a tung oil from Lee valley. The process was very simple. The lid to the humidor has some very fine figure to it so I wont up sanding it to 800 grit to remove all sanding marks. The rest of the box I sanded to 500 grit. I applied a thick first coat and let it soak in for about 10 minu...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #461: Quality, Not Quantity

09-14-2011 01:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

As I look to the calender today and see that we are almost half way through September, I am once again amazed at how quickly time seems to pass. I truly don’t mean to keep complaining about it, as I know I mention it from time to time here, but I just can’t get over how the days go by so quickly. It never used to seem this way. It gets me to wondering. Does this mean I am a poor time manager? Or does it mean that my life is full and therefore the hours slip by quickly? I fe...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1773: Site Update and Newsletter

09-08-2016 11:22 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

This morning something occurred for the first time since moving to our new home. I awoke and it was still pitch dark outside. I admit that I had a somewhat fitful night. I am not sure if it was the excitement of the day or thoughts of the days ahead or the warm humidity of the evening that was the cause. Maybe it was a bit of everything. Perhaps it is that I am feeling a bit more comfortable in our place here and things are (finally!) getting back to normal. I don't know. I am o...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1801: New Patterns and UPDATE Time!

11-18-2016 01:46 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

It is hard to believe we are at the end of another week already. I have been trying my best to stay caught up with things, and for the most part, I think I am doing alright. I have long ago abandoned the idea having to do "x" number of designs per week/month/year. If I measured my productivity by those numbers alone, surely it would be depressing and I wouldn't be fair to myself. There is so much more that is involved in my day-to-day activity that takes a good deal of time.&nbs...
