Had a mate want to add a foot rail… to his bar …to rest you foot on…... when standing at the bar.. I made these brackets out of New Guinea Rosewood…. just need to drill a 40mm hole to thread a 40 mm Tasmanian Oak dowel through… There are six of them … three for each side of the L-shaped bar. Made a template and then cut all of them on a bandsaw and smoothed them out on the oscillating spindle sander. As well as drilling holes I will need to roun...
I want to thank everyone who commented on my spraying conundrums the last couple weeks… I am now adding 2 dixie cups of denatured alcohol to 1 quart (sprayer cup) of dewaxed shellac…it is going much better. I also realized that the sprayer shipped with the largest needle installed. I downgraded to the smallest and that seems to be going much better now too…. You cant see it in the picture, but the finish is super clean…I put on about 6 coats last night and yo...
I started feeling lousy a little over three weeks ago… woke up one Monday morning with a chill that I just couldn’t shake. I don’t know if it was a cold, or the flu, or what, but I haven’t felt “normal” until this week…I didn’t even have any specific symptoms, and it wasn’t a knockdown, drag-’em-out thing either, I just had the blahs… didn’t feel like Woodworking… I didn’t even feel like hanging out here on LJ...
After having this new TV Entertainment Center project going on in my shop for over 2 months we were getting near the end. We installed the custom milled baseboard on all three pieces. Sanded them all the was to 180 and then started the finishing process. The first step was to take all of the doors and drawers out and remove all of the hardware. That was a monumental task in itself. There are a lot of hinges, knobs and slides on this thing. I am not sure I have mentioned it before, b...
This series has been about re-creating an existing wall entertainment unit to accomidate a larger TV for my parents. In the 2 side bookcases there were doors that have glass panels in them. My Dad took up the task of re-creating these glass panels himself. He located an Art Glass store in Minneapolis where he could purchase all of the supplies and equipment needed to create these glass panels. They are true divided light windows with brass caming. He spent about a month perfecting the ...

Dad Said he wanted a bigger TV and to do so required a bigger Entertainment Center. He really liked the style of the one he had, but just wanted it bigger. So around Christmas of 09, when the picture was taken, we looked at what he had and what it would take to build a bigger one. We also had to evaluate the tool situation. Now I already had the Ridgid Trio from Dad’s in my Garage. The Table Saw, the Jointer and the Surface Planer. The only saw blades I had were the 40t that...
I thought I would share with you all my Fathers quest to get a larger TV. Now what does this have to do with woodworking you ask….. Well you see the Entertainment Center my parents had is a 3 piece set they purchased at Home Furniture several years ago. It is a nice system, the problem lies that is does not really have the room for the newer large flat screen TVs. My parents had a 32 inch CRT tv in there that JUST barely fits. My dad wanted to get a flat sceen TV but the larges...
