Hints and Tips #26: To the last drop

01-08-2017 03:03 AM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

This is a tip that I got from the pooroldchap YouTube channel [link]. He posts what he terms Workshop Waffles where he talks about things in his workshop. If you use WD-40 or a similar aerosol propelled lubrication oil this may help you save a few cents. I took an old metal oil can that once contained sewing machine oil. I’m not sure if anything like this can still be purchased or if they’ve all gone over to plastic. A plastic bottle may be usable, but you’ll need a t...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1521: Always Learning

03-23-2015 12:21 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

No matter how long I have been doing woodworking, it seems that I am always learning something new. Most of the time, too, this knowledge comes when I need something or stumble onto something while I am focusing on something else. It is kind of cool. This weekend I spent creating some new things for my grand daughter, Willow.  Willow is about 18 months old now, and really at a 'busy' age. I thought it would a nice to send her some cute and simple puzzles for Easter.I have...

Actually, Marc Spagnuolo, aka The Wood Whisperer, and I got together in May to do some work in his shop. I was in the Phoenix area for my mom’s birthday and took some time to meet Marc and visit his place. Take a look at the Jewelry Box we put together. It was fun work.

How to Clean & Oil Your Antique Molding Planes

05-29-2014 02:31 PM by WoodAndShop | 0 comments »

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) In my above video I show how I clean and oil my antique molding planes. Of course, this method can apply to any wooden hand planes. My friend was kind enough to give me about 65 antique molding planes (thanks Bill!). Instead of spending a ton of time refurbishing them all right now, I thought I’d simply clean and oil them, and refurbish a plane when needed. I like to use boiled linseed oil (if you can’t find it at a local ha...

Adventures with Wax #1: Wood Butter (What you got in your box?)

03-31-2014 05:31 AM by Mr. E | 5 comments »

I recently made my first grease box. I’m sure it won’t be the last version of it, but it’s a start. I’m not alone in the “Could’a, should’a, would’a” thoughts as a project comes to a close. Size, shape, wood choice, overall design, etc. You have to start somewhere before you get it right. The next decision…What to put in it? Wood butter, spoon oil, grease, paste, wax, whatever you want to call it. Something must go in there...

AGING OF SURFACE #2: REPLICA OF THE OLD RIGA TAVERN WINDOW. PICTURE WITH FRAME. STEPS OF THE WORK

05-27-2013 04:14 AM by Walther von Einik | 4 comments »

Also, video blog is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vEzqKl-QOwA&feature=youtu.be I was looking for some photos and saw this – very old, and remembered that long time ago saw rare architecture, sculptures and houses in Riga. I always liked how the tree with impression of the ages looks. It reminded me my childhood, when my grandfather was making different things in «old style». The more things changed, the more they stay the same – and in this time «old style» ...

Oil bath...

12-19-2012 08:17 PM by degoose | 18 comments »

When applying oil to small boards…. I use an Oil Bath..Put a few inches of grapeseed oil in the bottom and then a rack over for letting the excess drip off. You can continue to “baste” the boards until they are saturated…Leave dry for a few hours and then buff…

Oil finishes - my microcoat method

08-22-2012 06:49 PM by KnickKnack | 7 comments »

Some friends visited a few days ago, and commented upon some of my work (it’s hard to avoid – the house is full of it), and, in particular, the finishes on some of my more recent work.There are many many things in the sphere of woodworking at which I am not very good, but, after several years, I can now reliably get a really nice, oil-only, finish on my pieces. It’s silky smooth, very tactile, and has a soft satin sheen.My method differs from anything I’ve seen or read...
