Big wood find #6: Vises & and 1/3 top and pop the grain

02-15-2010 04:55 AM by rtb | 5 comments »

I recently read a short article in one of the current woodworking magazines about a simple three step, foolproof (thats the part that caught my attention) method finish. The first step was to wipe on and then off a light coat of BLO. “to bring out the natural color” or words to that effect. Although I was going to whip out the small face vise the very next day cool temps and some sanding etc of the frame was in order first. Among others I wiped the tail vise with BLO just to s...

Workbench Build - Splayed leg French Bench #12: The Deadman

09-04-2012 04:06 AM by Mauricio | 35 comments »

Hello LJ Buddies, Here is my most recent progress. I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking. I previously milled the grove on the underside of the bench. I cut a rabet 3/4” in from the front and glued on a 3/4” tenon. This was cut by hand. First had to perfect the fit. Laid out the design with a wax pencil. Bandsawed the curve then cleaned up with a spokeshave. After drilling the holes and cleaned the Jatoba with Acetone and glued on the tenon an...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #241: Pictures!!

01-30-2011 04:43 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I really made good headway yesterday. Today I am in the home stretch of things and it is going to be really fun to see all four of these trays come together at once. I have never really done four at a time like this, but since they are all kind of different styles, it is rather exciting. I will get right down to business and show you where I am at with everything. I took pictures this morning, but nothing here is finished or even sanded for that matter. I do sand things to be pretty sm...

I'm still here

I haven’t fallen of the face of the earth but I am behind on the Queen Size bed build. It has become a money pit because of a 5/8” mortising bit that I didn’t own. Then I realized that the throat on the mortising machine is on 6” and the bottom rail is 8” so I ordered a 5/8” mortising chisel. While waiting for it to get here I dry fit the head board and low and behold a queen size bed is more than 6’ wide and by the way that was the longest length of pipe clamp that I owned. So then I shell o...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1411: "UFO's"

09-29-2014 12:15 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

This weekend was splendid!  I finally was caught up enough to do some things around the house that I have been meaning to do for quite a while. My little 'all season tree' is now beautifully decorated in a cute, Halloween theme (you will have to come back tomorrow to see that – I have too many photos to show today!) and not only did I do some major cleaning, but I cooked a great Sunday dinner and I plowed through a fairly large pile of "UFO's" and got them all...

End Table project #5: Narrow end came out of the clamps...

07-28-2015 02:37 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

And started to seperate at a couple joints! Ok, we have ways to deal with that. Clamps back on, to pull the parts back together. Then, to keep things in place, I have a little trick. Made sure that the side that was “up” was the inside of the panel. A few 5/8” long brads, three per joint, were driven in. I also, before the nails, flush the filler piece. Once all the nails were in and set, the sander took over. Everything nie and flat. Turned the panel over,...
