Hey everyone, Today I talk about the design of the top of my armoire, and i have got to say that i am pretty proud of it. My cousin Pat quest stars (again) and we have a little message for Marc Spagnoulo (The Wood Whisperer). SO i hop that everyone enjoys this episode. Well i hope that everyone liked it. next i will show the finished piece along with some things that i am doing on cutlist with the design. hope that everyone liked it and i hope to see you again for the next episode!
Well i just got a commission for a picture frame from a friend of the families. they want it to be made out of hickory to match their cabinets and they want the design to be the same as that of their cabinets. here is what i came up with on sketchup. so i just ordered the wood from Goosebay Lumber which i have tried before and i was happy with what i got so i figured that i would go back to them. as always though i treated myself to some other small pieces of wood along with my order. ...
After long thinking I decided to buy a new table saw instead of looking for how to buy festool options from Japan. And I abandon Festool that is very hard to maintain for Jananese resident. Last month I found a dealer which can send tablesaw to Japan. That was Woodcraft though they rejected my first offer. I didn’t know why they refused once, anyway I could got Jet JWTS-10 contractor’s saw . That have very smart propotion, its morter is inside of the body ! You know my shop...
I finally got up the strength to give sketchup a try this week. It has to be one of the most miserable programs I have ever tried to learn. There is too much information, there is too little information and almost every step involves going out somewhere over the internet to gather up the basics. Suffice it to say that the learning curve, at least for me, is daunting. Here’s what I have learned so far: I wanted a sketch to show me the approximate positioning of this shed relatve...
So now its time for the grand finale, a finish that really brings this piece to life. through some test piece and some inspiration (thanks to this woodworker) I began to dye some piece with some general finishes dyes. When i first put the Vintage Cherry Water based Dye Stain on the mahogany i knew i had a winner. It might be hard to see in these pictures but it really brings out the beauty in Mahogany. So the first step (after much sanding) is to apply a coat of the Vintage Cherry. I also ...
So now for the top detail. I didn’t really Expect to have it done by now but everything is going according to plan so i will start with the layout of the top detail. here is the picture of it laid out in pencil. I realized that is was hard to see so i outlined it in sharpie in order of the steps that I took so the next ones are in order of how i drew them. I just simply used a compass and made all the lines to flow together. now in this last one i laid out t...
About 3 days before the bookcase challenge, I thought I’d try my luck at drawing a plan for this bookshelf. I made this to fit in a corner of Barb’s little library in our basement. I purchased some MDF plastic clad oak pattern shelf boards, & I had some old stair balusters from a dilapidated house that was raised. I set them up in my lathe, & turned 3/4” tenons in the middle before I cut them in half.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~...
Well this is the beginning of a thank you card that i am making for someone. another woodworker who helped me out a lot (i won’t say their name just because I don’t want them to find out and just for their sake). this is going to be a cool card made out of some scrap mahogany that i had around. I am really going to try and show off here showing off all and every woodworking skill i have and making something that will be really nice. now to start off i just took a board of mahog...
Yet another project in the making. My wife asked me to build her a scrap book cabinet to put all her many papers and books, glues, tapes, ribbons, etc. Enough to build a 5 ft. by 5 ft. by 14” deep with about 20ish slots for paper, 10 drawers, ribbon holders (which I haven’t quite figured out yet) shelves to hold the many albums she has already made. Using 3/4 ply. with oak veneer. (Lowes on sale) and press board 1/2 thick. Also plan to use some oak facing on the drawers, and po...
