Entry Closet Project #7: One Step Closer!

2428 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 26 comments »

Another Milestone I am pretty excited to share with you guys today’s progress. I got all of the handle pieces finished! Next I have some touch up on the doors and the final install. I am sure I will have a full day of technical sweating. I had to brush the pieces again on the wire wheel to brighten the finish. I then hung them from the ceiling and wiped them down thoroughly with acetone. This strips any oil from the surface. I sprayed them with an acrylic resin lacquer by Sh...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #695: Lots to Keep Me Busy!

844 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I had a pretty decent day of work yesterday. As usual though, I didn’t get as much done as I wanted. There always seems to be lots of things to do that get in the way of woodworking and designing. It seems that Mondays are like that sometimes, as I am catching up on the things once the weekend is over. I did get the Happy Birthday pieces sanded and oiled. I made two sets with the intent of staining one set and leaving the other one natural. They look good and fit on the topper n...

MAKING OF A COFFEE TABLE (PART 6)

565 days ago by kiefer | 11 comments »

Well it has been some time that I worked on this table but there are things that have priority when you work for a living .I have installed the outside veneer on both halves of the base and started today with the inside veneer . The iron seemed the biggest obstacle and as I mentioned previously using a heat gun as a alternative got nixed because of the expense involved .I designed a round sheet metal base for the iron using some thin sheet metal with steel wool inside to give it a flex...

Walnut Guitar #2: Fretboard

1809 days ago by interpim | 2 comments »

I received an email stating that my truss rod was delayed in mail, so I cannot move as fast as I was expecting to on this portion. But it did give me a chance to go pickup a piece of maple for the fretboard and lay it out to give me the best look. The maple has a little curl to it, so hopefully once I get it polished out It will look real sharp with the contrasting walnut neck. Also, i have cut out blocks that I will start gluing up to create a radius-ed sanding block for the fretboard, ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #28: Another New Project in The Works

1521 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It’s pretty quiet around here today. It’s one of those days when I can’t wait to get to the scroll saw, but it is only 7am and I don’t dare until another couple of hours. I was able to finish another drawing last night of a fretwork liner that I am going to market to set under the large jar candles. It will resemble the dresser tray in concept, but it will set underneath the jar. Many people thought that the little dresser tray was made for that purpose, as the size...

Just for Fun... #34: Time to make it shiny...

1429 days ago by littlecope | 13 comments »

With all the trouble I had making the top for this small table, the wrap-up was utterly anti-climatic. I was determined to attach the legs with carriage bolts when the top was completed, and so I did…First I clamped the legs one by one, along with the “Sandwiches” (and some scraps to protect the piece!) in place and hand drilled a 1/4” hole through the lot of them…Insert the bolt, tighten the nut over the washer, and these are on there strong enough for me to sta...

The old time woodshop journals #30: The man on the mountain

688 days ago by jjw5858 | 3 comments »

Although I was glad to share my overall opinions and enjoyment of my journey north I thought it to be sort of empty of me if I forgot the man on the mountain. In past blog work you may have recalled a short mention of a man named Topper. Topper is Jenns dad and always supplying Jenn after a Thanksgiving or Christmas visit with some great cuts of hunted Venison to bring back for us to enjoy. I had never had the opportunity to actually go and meet him so this was a sure adventure to see j...

The side rail runner is connected to the legs by a draw bolt and a half moon type connector. Two of these type of connectors in each corner along with a single dowel. Even though this is a full size the platform is 70” overall wide. There will be bookcases that will sit on the platform and ru...
