Base cabinet for pipe smoking cabinet #1: Putting plans together

04-09-2013 06:14 PM by BobInMidland | 2 comments »

My first project that I have posted is a 24×6x24 pipe smoking cabinet that holds (36) pipes. As shown below: Now its time to start on the base unit. I need storage for my pipe tobacco which is stored in a number of different sized and shaped containers. Mason jars of different sizes, round or square metal tins, gasket-lid jars, etc… That can be accomplished rather easily, I would think, with standard fixed or adjustable shelving. I also need storage for pipe cleaners, li...

Assembly

03-12-2012 12:02 PM by T. D. Reid | 0 comments »

Yesterday I assembled the foot and head boards on the Arts and Crafts Twin size bed. What a tedious job that turned out to be with 15 stiles on each. I had a clamping plan that didn’t workout very well on the foot board and I re-evaluated my plan when I did the head board and the new plan seemed a little better and it did go smoother. It’s just the fact that there are a lot of pieces that have to go together all at the same time. I think that the Queen size Arts and Craft bed that is my upcom...

I couldn’t wait till tomorrow to put the top together. This did not go without it’s fair share of oh sh#t moments one of which almost had me starting the whole thing over almost.. But I’m getting ahead of myself.. I had planned to use pegs instead of bolts. I am trying to keep the number of mechanical fasteners to a minimum on this so lets have a go at it.. Marked out the location of the peg holes and drilled just the end caps.. Then fitted them and marked th...

Fuming a Small Box With Household Ammonia #4: Fuming Through the Finish

09-28-2014 12:50 AM by Roger Kimmel | 0 comments »

After noticing that the inside of my box picked up some color right through the Danish oil finish, I decided to experiment. I finished an oak stick with one coat of polyurethane varnish (right) and Danish oil (left). I left the center unfinished. The oak darkened nicely beneath the finishes. The Danish oil appears a bit darker than the varnish, but the image exaggerates this somewhat. Nice to know that you can sand and put at least one coat of finish on before fuming. I’d test it ...

Solar Kiln #1: Solar Kiln

09-14-2009 03:39 AM by HalDougherty | 14 comments »

I’ve started on my new solar kiln. The plans are from Virginia Tech’s solar kiln project. I’m using the modified plans for a 2000 bft kiln. The framing is 2X4 white pine, floors are made from 1” white oak, the outside siding is 1” white pine with 1” poplar over the pine. After the insulation is installed the inside will be covered with plywood. The supports are made from log sections of black locust. I’ll have more photos when it’s f...

Fuming a Small Box With Household Ammonia #5: Penetration of the Fume Darkening Into the Wood

09-28-2014 01:57 AM by Roger Kimmel | 1 comment »

Since the ammonia fume diffused through the finishes so easily, I started to wonder how far it penetrated the wood. I had assumed the fume darkening would be a thing film, so I planed one of the edges to see how far it would go. I planed and planed, and found out that the fume had penetrated 1-2 mm through the face grain, and up to 10 mm on the end grain. You can see this in the planed edge shown above. The fumed finish on oak can easily stand up to extensive sanding. As always, please t...
