Boat Bed #5: Final assembly

05-02-2009 05:09 PM by Chris Davis | 1 comment »

The finish is dry and all that is left is the final assembly. Now these many pieces have to be put together. The side rails had to have the brackets placed and the portholes attached. The toy box had to have the lid mounted, cleats put on and wheels added to the bottom. The headboard had the lights installed with the switch and the back tact on. I cut 9 slats for this bed since it will take just a mattress only. I ripped a 1×12 down in thirds (about 3 5/8”). As soon as I get it...

Finishing Info for the Woodworker #3: Finishes and their Compatibility

01-07-2015 04:38 AM by pjones46 | 1 comment »

Finishes and their Compatibility Almost any finishing product can be applied over any other as long as the “other finish” is dry and the product you’re brushing doesn’t dissolve and smudge the existing. For example: Let’s for arguments sake you are not using spray equipment and that you have made up and applied a water based PVA blotch controller as describe in my previous article Preventing Blotching Using A Wash Coat 1 to a cherry surface. You then apply a water-soluble dye for col...

tote for tools #4: A bottom and a handle?

11-10-2015 02:48 AM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

Well, first thing this morning, after the morning pill intake, was to set up a sharpening station that my back could handle. On the kitchen stove, we have a wooden tray. It is to cover the elements when the stove is not in use. Thanks to the height of the tray on the stove, I could set up the oil stones and sandpapers. Couple chisels needed a refresher on the grinder, but most just need some work on the stones and a final polish at 2K grit. Wound up doing 9 chisels, but not the goug...

Blog #1

03-17-2016 01:28 PM by MatthewTruax | 1 comment »

With this being my first blog, I’ll start by saying that my name is Matthew Truax. I’m currently serving the Army, and I live in the Midwest. Of course, being in the Army and having a wood shop has proven to be difficult as I’m currently well over my household goods weight limit. I’m trying to mitigate that by getting rid of what I don’t need and building multi tool stations in the shop to alleviate space issues as well. My shop currently resides in a two car ...

End Table project #4: The narrow end gets done

07-27-2015 08:03 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Well, at least it is now in a few clamps. Started off the day checking over the two side panels, now that they are out of the clamps….One was a bit wider at the bottom? Ok, scribed a line to match the other panel. Saw the extra stuff off. Rail was too long at the bottom. 1/4” down to 0” along one side. Dressed the saw marks with a plane. leveled the glue joints up. with a plane, and a sander with 60 grit pad. Got both looking spiffy, compared to last night...

Mission Inspired Couch Table #1: Starting my first 'big' project...

01-22-2008 07:09 PM by itsme_timd | 6 comments »

I love Mission style furniture and am working on my first piece, a couch table that will be used as an aquarium stand. I’m trying to take my time with this one, it gets worked on a little at a time in between some of my smaller projects. The table is red oak from HD. I don’t have a planer yet so I needed to buy lumber that was close to size and fairly finished. I want to try somethung in quarter sawn white oak next. I just finished one side of the table and wanted to post...

Back Burner projects

04-14-2009 04:43 AM by Demowen | 1 comment »

Howdy everyone, I thought I’d post a few projects that I’ve had to put on the back burner for a while. The first one is on the back burner simply because I’m not sure what to do with it! If you folks have any ideas on what to do with it, I’d love to hear it! This is a solid oak hand hewn barn beam that is about 5 or so feet tall. I don’t want to make a bench out of it. I think it should be a centerpiece someday. I’d make a manltle but I don’t ...
