Classical miror gilding #5: Oil gilding with brass

07-06-2013 12:42 AM by Patricelejeune | 8 comments »

Oil gilding is supposed to be easier than the water gilding but go figure I am less comfortable and good with it Your surface needs to be dried and totally sealed, shellac is good for that Size is applied as nice and thin as possible, also a very even layer even in the recess but be sure there is some in those bloody recess. The size have a different working time.On that project I used a slow size which requires an 12 hours drying period prior to gilding. I put it late in the evenin...

Shop Times #3: Super simple Bathroom Vanity

06-17-2013 08:19 PM by Brohymn62 | 0 comments »

So a couple of months ago is started this project. It ended up in the corner of my shop as time did not allow me to move forward with it. I saw it yesterday and decided to get it moving again. I just needed something really simple for my bathroom. So here is the progress I’ve made. I used some old scraps of plywood, poplar and pine to put it together using pocket screws. I had some mouldings sitting around that i use on the top. It’s only got primer on it now so I still have so...

Mirror Inlay

09-24-2012 03:52 AM by pintodeluxe | 4 comments »

Here is my process for cutting the inlay shown on Glen Huey’s mirror frame. First I used a 2-1/8” forstner bit to cut a hole for the template. The template is made from 1/4” mdf core plywood, and a couple 2” wide strips of mdf on the underside. The underside of the jig is shown here. The mdf strips trap the 3-1/2” workpiece, and center the hole. My walnut stock was less than 3-1/2” wide, so I wedged it in place. Here is the jig and the route...

Work(shop) in Progress #17: Sharpening Station

10-28-2011 09:04 PM by PurpLev | 4 comments »

When I started working with bladed tools (chisels/planes/etc) I wanted a sharpening system that was on the cheap, small and storable and versatile. I chose to start with the scary sharp, and used sand papers from 100grit (rough shaping and cleaning nicked blades) to 2500 for final honing and green compound for touch ups. I added the Veritas MK-II honing guide and was using it for reshaping/resestting blades and honing them through the grits. While this method worked for the time I wanted s...

Project Concepts #3: Jewelry mirror

08-07-2011 04:38 AM by EdgeWoodWorking | 1 comment »

My wife is needing a place to put all of her jewelry at, and she loves to look at her self in the mirror. So I came up with this drawing for a 2 in 1. This will be similar to a medicine cabinet except the insides will be designed for jewelry. I dont know if I want to use all wood or buy metal hooks for necklaces. And I am needing help with the ring holders. I was thinking about 1/2 inch foam rounded over with felt over it to keep the rings from falling out. But then I thought that f...
