finishing with mineral spirits

09-27-2009 09:50 PM by kosta | 2 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I am working on a project now and I found something out today that really surprised me if you put a polyurethane down over top of a oil based finish then it is a really rough surface if you sand it but if you take a rag soaked with mineral spirits then it removed that rough coat and it seals the wood up really good.

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #7: Dust free at last... well almost!

11-13-2013 11:58 PM by PhilBello | 6 comments »

The main problem with having a ‘micro-workshop’ in the apartment, is that dust does not stay there, and it is the one thing that annoys my wife! (especially when I run my finger over the furniture, and asked if she has dusted today! :) ) So I thought it was about time I did something to ease the problem. I decided to use an Vac hose support devised by Jack Houweling you can see his video Here , it is ideal for the small workshop, where you haven’t got space for dedicate...

Kitchen cabinetry #3: Thank you MacB!

01-24-2014 06:30 AM by Jake | 1 comment »

Firstly, I would like to re-start with the project by giving a huge thanks to mr MacB! http://lumberjocks.com/MacB and also the community here in LJ, but Mr MacB gets the main credit here. I don’t know if I can give out his name, so let’s call him Mr HeartofGold. Can you believe it, here I was stumped like you wouldn’t believe with my double blind corner and here comes along a guy who doesn’t know anything about me and offers to help me with drawings. I’ll be ...

What's that Skippy? Timmy fell down the well again? #1: Wherein skippy gets laid

09-25-2008 07:24 AM by timrowledge | 6 comments »

Today’s project has been to create a variety of scenes for the component parts of my SketchUp design for a printer cupboard for my office. I haven’t done a lot of SU recently so I’m way out of practice and I never really had done much with scenes anyway. I think I see a need for some automation here; some scripts that can take a selection of components and a) produce a scene with them laid out sensibly in a ‘list’b) do all the hiding required to hide everything e...

Hi Cody I am a tile setter who recently got into woodworking as a hobby over the last year and I’m not in to making anything to big or fancy really just some little projects around the house as well as remodeling my home. I have been having some trouble finding good hard wood and the prices are really high. With the current economy I thought prices would be down a little but I guess not. Well anyways so far I have been getting my wood from the local home depot and ace hardware but I wa...

I moved recently and i got some more place for a shop. I am getting some new tools etc to outfit it, slowly but surely! I saw on craigslist a 8 gallon(i thought it was a 4, but i’m not complaining) RIDGID wet/dry vac for 15$i called the guy and today i went to check it out. it works great, and it has a nozzle and hose. just a bit dirty but the suction is good.WHAT A DEAL! does anyone know any attachments that could help it be a makeshift dust management system?

There are times in our lives where we either hold what we got or change everything. The past few weeks there has been a change in my way of thinking I have gotten away from my O.C.D and havent taken the time to organize and plan, that ladys and gentle men will be my workshop focus. Changing everything and cleaning up my act making it new and nice or at least cleaner and newer.

Rogue Fine Living #2: Standerdize

02-08-2011 07:28 AM by Rogue | 2 comments »

There is possibly no greater challenge for functional art than standardization. For most makers, you’d sware it was a four letter, get-your-mouth-washed-out-with-soap, filthy, word. If you dare to utter “standardize” in your college art class, you are sure to receive an F on your next project. The world of art does not square with having to work inside set parameters. However, like it or not, it’s a fact that those of us that make things that are to actually be used must accept and deal w...
