Lego Table #7: Good progress

11-22-2015 07:58 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

This post contains a lot of images—I’ve posted some here, but for the rest, please visit my woodworking blog) Very productive nap time session today! First order of business was to take advantage of the 65 degree weather and paint the play surface for the top. We chose a primary blue to cover the MDF. The kids have plenty of the green Lego baseplate’s, so blue should compliment what they already have. The MDF took the paint in three thin coats that ate the entire can. Th...

Lego Table #6: Hybrid woodworking

11-22-2015 07:53 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

This post is fairly image heavy—I’ll post a few here but to see all the images, please visit my woodworking blog) Accomplished a fair amount today. Before I got to work, I dusted off the base and the legs one final time and then primed the legs …and painted the base. It’s hard to tell, because I used white primer and white paint, but trust me, it looks nice in person. I put on two thin coats and used up almost a whole can of spray paint, but it sure does look ...

Hints and Tips #11: Get a Grip on Your Spray Cans!

09-16-2015 01:04 AM by Dave Rutan | 1 comment »

Some of us use spray cans of finishing products to protect our projects. Using a spray can while holding down the button with an achy finger was challenging at best. Then I saw these grips for spray cans in the paint section and bought one. I can’t describe what a difference the grip makes. It makes a can of spray behave like a spray gun. You get great control over aiming and starting/stopping the spray. There seem to be grips made by many spray paint brands as well as a few generic...

Not a huge addition to the shop, but this helped out clean up a lot of clutter on my desk area. But little by little im getting closer to a nice organized shop. I just used whatever scrap I had laying around which help clear up a little clutter in another part of the shop! :) I really love this piece even though it was such a small addition!

Make a 3D Christmas Tree Puzzle on the Bandsaw

12-20-2014 06:18 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

I have enjoyed my new bandsaw greatly. It was a great addition and there will be many more project coming off of it. This time I am making a small Christmas Tree Puzzle that is 2 levels high. The materials cost is extremely low because you can use a scrap 2×4. This project can get the kids involved or you can hog all the building fun for yourself. The approximate size of the the is 6″x3″x 1 1/2″. After a little paint it can go to the kids to give them some fun times. Click here for the vid...

Hints and Tips #3: Paint 'Pyramids'

12-18-2014 11:42 PM by Dave Rutan | 11 comments »

I can’t claim this as my original idea. I saw it somewhere sometime in the past. [EDIT] I found where I got this idea. It was in this video tip by Chad Stanton. It’s a great idea though and uses up some small scraps of plywood. You can buy paint pyramids, but I like the free option. All I did was take pieces of 1/2 inch plywood and cut them into approximately 2×2 inch squares. Then I drilled a pilot hole and made a countersink for a deck screw so they would sit le...

Why buy it when you can make it! #16: Dresser Rehab [Part 4] - Almost finished...well finished but some assembly required

10-12-2014 08:22 PM by paxorion | 1 comment »

After an unexpectedly long detour detour to get my ducks in a row for my daughter's birthday party, I finally got to spraying on the paint for the dresser rehab. This was no easy feat, as I had to tackle two major roadblocks. I needed to get over my fear of trying out a HVLP. Since I was using a Harbor Freight HVLP, I wasn’t sure how well it would work. I had to get my wife to mix the paint color she wants out of the 3 cans of General Finishes milk paint we bought a while back. ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1412: My All Season Tree - Halloween, 2014

09-30-2014 12:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Many of you who read know about my little "all season" tree. It is a tall and slim tree that I keep up all year round and change the decorations to coordinate with the season. Even though we live in a small place, it is nice to have such a wonderful little tree to brighten things up and decorate with different things. Since Keith and I are always designing new ornaments and things, I never run short of things to adorn it with. In fact – I don't think I have ever had it loo...

Rocket Bookcase #9: Painting (at last!)

06-05-2014 02:30 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

It has been entirely too long since I last worked on my son’s bookcase. Since then, my wife has given birth to our second son, and now there’s a toy box looming on the horizon to build! I’ve been waiting on the weather mostly the last month but winter is FINALLY losing it’s grip on Wisconsin… Today was the first reasonable day (56° and sunny) that I had help with the kiddos and time to work. So work I did. Spent three hours and got two coats of Behr Ultr...

02-02-2014 03:32 PM by JSB | 2 comments »

For those who are interested, here’s a video covering the process of my first attempt at a weathered/antique paint look. I believe some people call this a “shabby chic” look?
