A project in Maple #7: a PIP, and a tray?

10-06-2017 11:18 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Well, catching up….trying to get this project done..sometime… Got this all sanded down to 120 grit…and added a coat of amber shellac…. Still needs to have the hinges installed…. All squared edges were rounded over, using a spokeshave, a block plane, and smoothed out with the sander..Hinges? Well…they did make it ON to the chest…in a way. The Maple 1×1 and the 1×4? The skinny one is to be a rail. The one by is to supply a...

Greene & Greene Gamble House Side Chair #1: Material Preparation

10-06-2017 03:12 AM by TungOil | 7 comments »

Now that my Thorsen inspired dining table is complete (you can see the BLOG here), it is time to turn my attention to a set of chairs. Since I have never built a chair, I decided to enroll in the Gamble House Side Chair class at Marc Adams School of Woodworking in Indiana. Many will know the instructor, Bob Lang, who is not only a Lumber Jocks member but has authored several books and was editor of Popular Woodworking magazine for many years. The chair design is based on the side chairs in...

Shop stuff #106: No Lathe Chisel Handles

10-06-2017 01:17 AM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

My first time ever using a draw knife. These are the first chisels I ever bought and the handles have given up on them. I don’t have a lathe, so you work with what you have and learn and have fun at the same time. My son has recently shown an interest in woodworking so these will be his first set of chisels.

DeWalt GWI Rebuild #1: Smoking motor?

10-04-2017 01:49 AM by _Byron_ | 2 comments »

So this is what I’m starting with, a DeWalt GWI, 1.5HP motor. Powers up with a bit of chatter in the relay, but nothing too bad. Spins smooth as silk. Until… Smoke, oh no. After a few seconds a bit of smoke starts to emerge from the armature. It still spins strong and the breakers haven’t blown, so hopefully it’s not too bad. First task, get it open. Getting the front of the case open wasn’t too difficult, a little bit of wiggling and it was ...

Dining table inspired by the Greene & Greene Thorsen table #26: Spraying the Tops and Installation

10-02-2017 02:55 AM by TungOil | 7 comments »

With the bottoms of my table halves and leaves complete, I move on to finishing the tops. After spraying on a seal coat of EM6000 gloss I squeegee on a coat of Seal Coat grain filler. The Seal Coat dries quickly and sands easily to a fine white powder with a 400 grit Abranet disk. After sanding the grain filler, I apply 3 coats of EM6000 gloss to build a base to the finish. The gloss really brings up the pommelle grain in the sapele. I follow the gloss base coats with a sing...

A project in Maple #6: A bottom framed, a puppy died, a lid done...

10-01-2017 04:22 AM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

Had a little 3 month old puppy in the house…..she came down sick the other day….the next morning she passed away, before we could even get her to the vet…..thinking something poisoned her out in the yard…. Ok, I wasn’t in a very good mood when I returned to the shop… Hammer and chisel to shape the feet a bit, to at least blend them together….Ripped a bunch of maple scraps into 1×1s…and made a frame of sorts.. To support the plywood...
