03-05-2015 03:49 AM by Jerry | 22 comments »

Okay, I was asked to post a how to for the, I guess I’ll start calling it “vanishing” hinge, since it’s not completely invisible. Anyway I struggled with posting this tutorial, because in this instance things went badly, but I think it’s just as important to publish the mistakes as the successes, because that way whoever reads this can see where the pitfalls are. So in the spirit of full disclosure, here goes. Okay, this tutorial is for 1/2” wood and dow...

Pallet Harvesting

06-27-2011 02:40 PM by CptWingnut | 11 comments »

So this is my first try at a blog, and I figured I’d start with something that is simple and probably had already been done a number of times before. Regardless, I will probably learn more about blog making than you will about pallets. Pallet HarvestingFirst you have to find a pallet that is worth harvesting, craigslist is a good place to look, but I have had much more luck by finding a company in an industrial complex that receives a fair amount of freight. Target places that have h...

Transferring Images to Wood #2: The Dirty Work & The Big Payoff!

06-21-2013 08:29 PM by KnotCurser | 14 comments »

Okay, you have waited overnight (at least) and are now ready to continue….... The image has now dried and all the medium has gone perfectly clear. If you noticed the change in scenery, we are now in my kitchen at the sink. Get the water running pretty warm and then totally soak the image – that’s right SOAK IT! Let the water sit on top of the wood until the paper actually absorbs it and then put a tad more on. Now, take your thumb and, gently at first,...

Out of the scrap pile and into a gift #1: Convert random scraps into end grain boards (cut first - design later)

12-07-2009 06:09 AM by sras | 4 comments »

OK. This blog stuff is new to me. I’ve got a couple projects going where I am forcing myself to leave the large stock alone and work with material that ends up getting burned after I have too much of it. I have been using CBdesigner from jayman7. He posted a project on this here. I have searched through blog entries and I think I am using this in a little different way. Another big resource for me has been dewoodwork’s blog on how to make an end grain cutting board. Clearly,...

Finishing #1: Finding a stickley finish

05-12-2010 05:25 AM by brianl | 5 comments »

I have been working on a pair of nightstands for a while now and I’ve been trying to sort out what stain to use on them. They are quartersawn white oak and reproduction Stickleys so I wanted a nice older look. I started digging around in magazines, books, online, etc… and I found some great resources – like Captain Skully's forum post. Unfortunately, viewing something over the net always makes it appear a bit “off” to me. So I decided that I needed to prototy...
