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

07-06-2011 11:20 AM 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 #2: The maple dresser tray

06-04-2010 01:25 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

First of all, I want to thank you for all your positive responses. I was able to look at some of the work and it was so impressive! I am trying to put faces with comments and projects so I can get to know everyone well, but as my brain gets older, it somehow takes me longer to associate one with the other. I get so embarrassed when I don’t remember someone. But there has been a lot of water under this bridge and after not traveling and living in the same place for the first thirty so...

Some things that I've learned about finishing. Some of them I also use. #3: Wood filling and finishing

07-03-2007 04:28 AM by Karson | 17 comments »

The continuation of the Pumice and rottenstone as wood fillers. I let the BLO (Boiled Linseed Oil) harden for 1 week on the boards.This is my spraying table that I use. The bottom is on a lazy susan swivel so that it can turn 360 Degrees. I made a block that I can set on top of it that has a bunch of screws through the plywood so that I can put items on top of the screw points and not have the wood sitting on the flat surface and get finish creep under the boards. The spray gun that us...

Florida - BP - Pensacola #1: Our vacation to Pensacola

06-07-2010 01:41 AM by tooldad | 11 comments »

Looks like it will be cut short due to oil on the beach. After getting in the water, I felt like I had rubbed sun tan oil over my legs and hands that got wet. http://www2.snapfish.com/snapfish/slideshow/AlbumID=2477288023/PictureID=75838858023/a=156000944_156000944/otsc=SHR/otsi=SPIClink/COBRAND_NAME=snapfish/ http://www2.snapfish.com/snapfish/slideshow/AlbumID=2477288023/PictureID=75838850023/a=156000944_156000944/otsc=SHR/otsi=SPIClink/COBRAND_NAME=snapfish/This was at about 9:30 am ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #5: What's so bad about Monday, anyway?

06-07-2010 01:55 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Well, here we are. Another weekend under our collective tool belts and starting off a new one. I sit here knowing when I check my Facebook account the usual barrage of grumblings and comments about Monday will be waiting there to greet me. It seems everyone has something negative to say about Monday. I fell like asking people “What did Monday ever do to you anyway?” My friends on Facebook are by now used to my bright and chipper attitude on Monday. I purposely turn it up a ...

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

02-22-2011 02:00 PM 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...

Mahogany Kitchen Stool Project #14: Finish is on - all 9 coats! Plus 2 buffing, wax and polish

07-12-2012 05:24 AM by sras | 16 comments »

After getting everything set up, the next step was put the finish on! I really like this step, each coat increases the gloss, depth and color. I use a two finish process, both parts are from General Finishes. The first finish is their oil based coat. I wipe the finish on with a piece of cheesecloth. The first coat basically soaks into the wood. Areas where the grain is very tight, even the first coat shows a little gloss. I add more coats until the wood shows a uniform gloss....

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

05-25-2012 05:19 PM 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...
