Desk Build #6: Getting the Ole' Fisheye

09-15-2010 06:42 AM by Huckleberry | 3 comments »

. 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??? ...

Red Oak Opportunity

09-14-2010 05:17 AM by KevinH | 2 comments »

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...

Roll Top Secretaries Desk #2: Project Done

09-07-2010 06:22 AM by Jim | 3 comments »

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...

Super Duper Sled #1: The Sketchup Plans

09-04-2010 08:25 AM by AttainableApex | 11 comments »

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...

Oak Pub Table #4: Glue ups and sanding are finished

09-03-2010 05:25 AM by VinnieP | 1 comment »

I am ever so close to staining. All of the gluing and sanding is done as of now. I’m going to give everything a once over to see if there are any more spots that needed sanding. Otherwise, I’m ready to start staining. I am going to stain the top before attaching it. Here is the post all glued up: This is a close up of the arms. The groove you see was routed in. The buttons I made previously will help connect the top. This is how it looks without the top on: And h...
