Hand Planes #5: NY TOOL CO PLANE- Oilin' her up

798 days ago by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 4 comments »

Well I finally got around to getting some BLO (Boiled Linseed Oil). While I was waiting for the firehouse table stain to dry I grabbed a plastic container and squirted some BLO in it and placed the plane straight up and down. I must say I was highly impressed with how quickly it started to work. You could literally see the oil getting drawn up through the plane. In about 10 minutes it had pulled the oil up about an inch high (out of the 22” length of the plane). Post some more pics tomo...

Danish Oil

802 days ago by thecarpentershands | 4 comments »

So, a fellow carpenter just told me about danish oil so naturally, i picked some up. I just put it on a cherry and ash box which I will be finishing soon and WOW! I was blown away by the enhancement of the oil. I have mainly been using linseed oil, shellac and polyurethane lately but I really think danish oil is going to open pandora’s box of finishes. Again, I’ll say WOW! God bless.

End Grain Cutting Board LJ Class 006 #14: Rub me with oil!

1122 days ago by degoose | 10 comments »

After sanding the boards to 320 grit on the Random Orbital Sander, I used 1200 grit to burnish the tops only… then it was just a matter of rubbing heaps of Mineral Oil [liquid Paraffin oil] into the boards…and buffing off the excess… this procedure will be repeated every 24 hours..once I get back from Adelaide…And then just one more finishing touch… next week…

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #264: Back to Some Woodworking

1256 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 19 comments »

I finally got back to doing some woodworking yesterday. I had finished drawing this pattern up last week and got it cut out, but it seemed that I was in several other directions the past several days and it was kind of woven in between all the other things I was doing. It is a simple design by my own standards, and I had mixed feelings about it. I find however that every design doesn’t have to be complex to be successful, and I think it will have a wide appeal. After seeing it fin...

The plastic tool box...(or A more likely than not, unintelligable rant about oil.)

1368 days ago by BillieAchilleos | 15 comments »

I’m becoming increasingly aware that so few people know where their everyday things come from. I was talking a lady the otherday and realised she didn’t know that plastic’s derive from oil. It just wasn’t something she had ever thought about. When people talk about what will happen when oil runs out, they talk about petrol mostly. But they don’t seem to think about plastic. the components in their car, the circuit boards in their computer, the silicone chip that ...

Boiled Linseed Oil #1: Boiled Linseed Oil

1448 days ago by falegniam | 12 comments »

I found this bit of helpful information in a magazine, and just wanted to share. Dip a rag in a container of boiled Linseed Oil, and wipe it onto a sanded tool handle (shovel handle was shown).Let the oil soak in for a few minutes. The wipe it off the excess with a dry rag. I haven’t tried this, but I’m thinking it might work on cutting boards, and butcher blocks as well.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #19: It Isn't Finished Until It's "Finished"

1501 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Did you ever see some really beautiful woodworking done only to notice that it wasn’t really ‘finished’? I have been doing woodworking and scroll sawing for a long time and I must admit that finishing is one of my shortcomings. I have been to many shows, too where people have on display the most beautiful, intricate fretwork that must have taken them days to cut, only to have little or no finish on them – or worse yet – a poorly sprayed on finish which has drip...
