Charles Rohlfs Oak Desk, Stickley Ellis Table & Iconic Crafts, Nelson Atkins Art Gallery Kansas City

04-30-2012 05:23 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 23 comments »

Wow! I made it, I finally made it, and oh what a surprise to find a museum with Iconic Furniture pieces intermixed with a lot of European, Asian, Native American, Egyptian, and some strange Contemporary Stuff that someone else calls “art”. ————————- WARNING: If you are easily offended by my silly notions of what looks good and is well built, please don’t read any farther. I’m just giving my opinions, that is what ...

Karma brought me LOTS of FREE wood today!

10-22-2008 05:38 AM by oldskoolmodder | 23 comments »

I was out at my local exotic wood store that I’ve shopped at for the last 25 years, and picked up a few nice things, as well as some wood too. I was kind of wondering how I let myself spend $87 (total) on Purple Heart, (1×11 1/4×17), 1/8” x 2 1/2” x 36” (2pcs), 1” x 2” x 30” Cordia/Bocote & 1/4” x 4” x 24” Mexican Chechen, plus brad tip bits and nice adjustable countersink bits plus a bunch of misc stuff. When I went...

Ebonizing oak with vinegar and steel wool solution.

02-05-2012 04:10 PM by bigfish_95008 | 23 comments »

A while back I was reading about using vinegar and steel wool to ebonize wood – particularly Oaks. I took the last of the wife’s vinegar and and some steel wool threw them in an old peanut butter jar and set it on the shelf. Nothing seemed to be happening with it – don’t know what I was expecting, but even after a few days in solution there was not significant color change of the liquid. Yesterday, a fabulous day here in SOCAL by the way, I looked at the solution and n...

Carving tips! #1: What a carving looks like before, & after applying the finish!

04-13-2008 10:18 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 23 comments »

A person can spend a lot of time on a carving, but after the final cut with your chisel, you don’t really know what all of the chiseling you’ve done really looks like. You have to choose a finish that will enhance your carving. On some carvings I use a stain, others, just a clear finish, it all depends on the theme, or type of wood you’re using. I’ve chosen some images of my mining scene to show you the difference of before, & after. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #2: You NEED this mini-cabinet maker's bench! (Part 2)

11-18-2011 09:29 PM by StumpyNubs | 23 comments »

The camera comes back into the Stumpy Nubs Workshop to further document life in a small semi-professional shop… Includes tips on hand cut dovetails, utility chisels, resawing wide boards on the table saw, glue-ups, and a lot more! This is part 2 of Episode 1. It begins with making the CN Box, then continues the “amazing mini-cabinet marker’s bench”. My favorite part is the footage on cutting tiny dovetails by hand, big ones by machine, and huge ones with a hon...

Workbench Build - Splayed leg French Bench #18: The Shelf

01-20-2013 03:34 AM by Mauricio | 22 comments »

I’m surprised at how much progress I’ve made since the last blog, especially since this part was pretty hand tool intensive. The following is the process I went through the make the lower shelf. I had a bunch of rough sawn Red Oak that was perfect to use up on the shelf. I’m done making furniture out of Red Oak so I really wanted to burn through it all with this bench build. So I got a nice workout two days ago with the wooden Fore, Scrub, and Stanley #5. I got these boards fl...

Just for Fun... #18: A Total Mistake, a Fix, and More...

06-10-2010 11:58 PM by littlecope | 22 comments »

Yesterday I left off with the hinges all but cut out for my latest box…So this morning I was feeling good, feeling strong, ready to tackle the challenges of the new day. I began with the worst cuts to make, the side cuts. To help with this, I taped the two pieces together. These are heavy duty Scroll cuts, and I wanted to have as much heft to the pieces as I could. Being taped also aids in the stability of the things giving them a wider, flatter bottom The first cut went fine. On the se...
