Thoughts On Working With Reclaimed Wood

05-21-2015 03:11 AM by michaelray | 4 comments »

Working with reclaimed wood can be very rewarding once the final product comes together. Unless you are purchasing it from someone who has already pulled the nails and cleaned the surface be prepared to put some effort into preparing it for projects. Collecting and preparing the raw materials often requires a lot of hard work. Having worked with a lot of reclaimed wood over the past several years more and more projects are demanding it especially since completing a barn tear down over the pas...

Spiral staircase.

05-20-2015 04:00 AM by toolchap | 5 comments »

I remember living out on my smallholding and dreaming a little house for myself. Back in those days, the dream was to build a small cottage with a classic staircase. The idea was to build the house so that I could build a staircase. Not put the staircase in the house….you get my drift. This idea remained with me and when I moved to our small property in the village, that was my first thought. Staircase. Except. Bloody thing had twisted in my mind. Spiral staircase. The line...

Just for Fun... #96: Can You Guess What it Is?

05-14-2015 06:17 AM by littlecope | 25 comments »

Took a little break from the Re-Painting scene and squeezed in some Shop Time… Can You guess what I made?Began with a scrap 2 X 4 appropriately long enough for the task at hand and shaped the first profile with the Band Saw… Since the 2 X 4 didn’t have a very flat bottom, it was clamped between two scraps of Poplar that are flat… The Clamps were Leapfrogged down the length of the big ‘Sandwich’ as it was cut…Which gave this… More Profile c...

Some past projects, #4: Shop projects

04-29-2015 09:39 PM by Silverhill | 6 comments »

Being new to woodworking, shop projects are a large part of my efforts as new tools come into the shop and the shop becomes more of a shop than a garage. I am refurbishing one wall at a time, so please keep that in mind when an unfinished wall comes into view. This was an early project to get my clamps out of the way. It was just a simple box placed on said unfinished wall. please excuse the trailer park curtains. They have been replaced now with the mini blinds. :) This is t...

Some past projects, #3: The Darbin Orvar stool

04-29-2015 05:51 AM by Silverhill | 1 comment »

I follow Darbin Orvar on Youtube and built the stool that she featured last year. i even tried something new to me, distressing a painted finish. I used the leftovers of the Teal Green bench that I made previously, and top coated it with leftover color from a kitchen project. I sanded some “worn” places on some of the edges for a used appearance. We were invited to the second birthday of a friend’s child and did not know what to give her. it came to me in a flash! The sto...

Some past projects, #1: Benches

04-29-2015 02:14 AM by Silverhill | 4 comments »

I just decided to take up wood working a little over a year ago due to health reasons. I could not continue with my past hobbies, so I decided to take up WW late in life. I know that I will never get the years of experience needed to accomplish what others do, but if I am having fun, so what? Fun is fun, at whatever level one is at. I work exclusively with pine or fir due to low cost and easy availability. I even use pocket hole screws, and pin nailers! My first project was a basic 5...

2x4 Bunk Bed Build #3: Drawbore mortise and tenon

04-17-2015 01:43 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

Well in part 1 I went over cutting a tenon. Part 2 included how to chop the mortise. This time grab your drills and a few dowels as we pin the mortise and tenon joint together. This is as easy as eating cake, without all the calories. View on YouTube

Farmhouse Table w_Buffet #1: The Concept

04-14-2015 10:56 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 17 comments »

In the not-too-distant past, a young lady and her new husband spotted a ‘farm house table’ project on Pinterest and thought about building it for their new house. A family member recommended me as someone who might be interested in completing the project for them. It’s the first thing I’ve ever quoted and been paid to make in my shop. Going through the estimating process was introspective, in a way; deciding how long it would take to build vs. actual, billable time was something I’d ne...

A non-plywood 4 drawer filing cabinet #4: The reveal

04-13-2015 07:35 AM by GCM | 5 comments »

The finished project: The finish on this project is shop made country/shabby chic using chalk paint made from cheap flat ceiling paint tinted with even cheaper poster paints, mixed with not-so-cheap calcium carbonate, and shop made finishing past wax made from a chunk of bees wax and boiled linseed oil. One coat of Ivory chalk paint, 2 coats of Cyan chalk paint (first coat epic fail due to miscalculation of amount required), and 2 coats of finishing wax after sanding and distressing. ...
