OK LJs, I need some help here. I went back to the barn where I got my Performax and picked up the clamps Ralph had. As I was leaving I walked by a wood pile and these two pieces were just laying on the ground. I kicked them over as asked what they were. He had no idea and said if I wanted them, they were mine. I was told by my wise old uncle one time, “NEVER PASS UP FREE WOOD”. So I threw them into the truck. I need help in trying to identifying them. The are local Pacific...
. I have this desk all ready to get lacquered and man o’ man how I love the smell of lacquer. I get all ready to start my process and begin to shoot the desk. I do this this way most of the time. I shoot a coat of lacquer sealer let it rest an hour or so and then sand with 600 grit paper. I then start my top coat, I do this step pretty much the same as the sealer. When I go back to check my work about 1/2 hour later the top has all of these bubbles in it. What the @#*^ is this??? ...
I just posted my first project: a rather long-winded story about my 19 year old deck and recovering from storm damage. The rest of the story is that my 80 year old tree gave me a lumber opportunity. First, those big limbs were 16 inches in diameter where they joined the trunk. Several feet of each limb is now in the possession of a good friend who is a wood turner. Second, the trunk was 23 inches in diameter at the base and 18 inches at a height of about 45 feet. It was hauled away i...
I been working more mortise and tenons for the last few days, I also cut finger while I was cleaning the tenons with my Japanese Chisels. Ouch that hurt! I did not get any shots of cutting the tenons, I use my tenoning jig.
In this episode I go over the installation of the drawer slides. It is very important to remember that the width of you drawer box is the key to a successful slide installation.
Well the Roll Top Secretary Desk is now finished. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/36860 It’s been many months in the making. What’s really amazing is that I didn’t really have any “Oh No, what have I done!” moments with this project. Everything just went together well and did what it was supposed to do. I wish all my projects went like that. Some of the real turning points of the project were: I was buying the canvas for the tambour, wondering if...
I got good results with the stain today!
I got the chair almost ready for refinishing, I just need to sand with 180 grit paper. I hate to put more stain, on the chair since I strip the old stuff. :)
Well here is my latest sled design. This sled is a combination of many sleds that i have seen in the past. One sled that really influenced it, is the super sled by john nixon at eagle lake woodworking. I like the t track on the sled part (the sheet part) but i am going to use real t track. I also liked the t track on top of the fence, which i incorporated, but it stops there. This sled should be able to do just about everything. You can cut 45’s ( blade tilting at 45 deg ) and every o...
