I haven’t done a grid pattern before, but really wanted this game to play with family over the upcoming holidays. I used Nick Ferry’s jig to get started, Thanks!

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...

Shop stuff #105: Deck build pt 2, done for this year.

09-29-2017 11:22 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

The completion of what I am doing this year with the deck/landing. I ended up putting in more patio stones than I had expected to. I think putting them in is a job for someone younger and more fit than I am, it wore me out….lol. More of a vlog style. There was a lot of work went into it and it took a long long time, so that is my excuse for lack of content over the past while. View on YouTube

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1855: Settling In

09-25-2017 11:58 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It has been a wild and crazy month here for us at Sheila Landry Designs.  Both Keith and I have been busy changing, rearranging and updating things at all of our venues. It has been thrilling and exciting for us both, and we are truly enjoying seeing everything come together.  It is hard to believe that we are approaching the final quarter of the year already. As usual, the time has just passed by too quickly for my taste. I suppose that has always been one of the biggest complaints...

Dining table inspired by the Greene & Greene Thorsen table #25: Finish Schedule Established and Start Spraying

09-25-2017 02:38 AM by TungOil | 5 comments »

Now that the grain filler has arrived, I prepare another test sample. After applying three coats of dye stain and a seal coat of EM6000 gloss I squeegee on three coats of Aqua Seal grain filler using an old hotel key card as a applicator. The Aqua Coat is a gel about the consistency of petroleum jelly and applies easily. It does lift the color some. A light sanding is required between coats to smooth. I allow the Aqua Coat 24 hour to fully dry then apply three coats of EM6000 gloss ...
