Any advice ...

Electrical, Lighting and other Wires! #1: Electrical, Lighting and Such

05-08-2010 11:33 PM by wichle | 0 comments »

Having owned two older houses, 1926 and 1937, I have had the need to do a good deal of wiring. I always make sure that anything I do meets or exceeds code. Only once was I questioned when selling a house, I had used a LARGER guage wire, , 12 instead of 14, and 14 was code. I had to point out that 12 was probably over kill, a friendly cup of coffee and some conversation took care of the issue. My fall back reference for alot of electrical questions is Home Depot’s book “Home ...

That's not a Knife.....

05-08-2010 09:35 PM by degoose | 4 comments »

This is a knife…..well at least the handle.. I had a mate ask me to make a knife handle to replace the plastic handle he had on it.. . A small block of Hairy Oak was selected and then resawn. ... the two halves of the knife handle were double-stick taped together...to maintain grain pattern across both sides.....the shape drawn and cut on the bandsaw. As he wants to do the shaping and carving, I only had to rough cut the shape...only a coupla minutes to do it. I will post p...

Finishing

05-05-2010 10:41 PM by Hisingwooddesign | 9 comments »

What Type of finish do you use? Finishing is a common question among woodworkers. I know for me when I first started finishing it was almost dreadful. I loved to build things but when it came to finishing I almost wanted to leave it bare wood. I built a oak dart board, I guess you could call it a case several years back and when it came time to finish it I ruined it. I applied two many coats two fast and didn’t take the propper steps to apply a quality finish. When it was done I thr...
