Incra Double Dovetail Project #7: Finishing and Finished!

11-10-2011 05:11 PM by SPHinTampa | 2 comments »

I have been sanding as the project progressed so I am able to hand sand 180 grit and then 220 grit. I then finish with three coats of rub on poly. Let the piece sit for a couple of weeks to wait for the finish to fully cure and then rub out any dust nubs with 0000 steel wool. Finally, I use my Beall Buffing system to buff out the finish. Use the red tripoli finish first, followed by white diamond compound and finally wax. To be honest, I should have sanded to 320 to really se...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #518: Trial and Error and Finally Success

11-10-2011 02:02 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

First of all, I want to thank everyone for all the nice comments and personal messages you sent me regarding these ornaments. Nothing makes the extra hours and effort spent more worth it than knowing that others enjoy what you made. Anyone who creates can attest to that. The long hours at the saw spent working on these (as well as my sore back!) are now just a faded memory, replaced by a sense of accomplishment and achievement. It really does me good to see how much everyone likes these, ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #517: Almost There

11-09-2011 02:16 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 15 comments »

I made a great deal of progress yesterday in my ornaments. I am truly happy with them so far and I look forward to finishing them up today. I finished cutting the final two by around noon, and I also remembered to take step-by-step pictures of the final one so that I can include them in the instructions. That is something that I sometimes forget about when doing projects such as this. I am so engrossed with seeing if things will work out as I planned, that I forget to do the obvious. ...

Jointer Refurbish #1: Refurbish Begins

11-09-2011 07:15 AM by PTIII | 6 comments »

My father had acquired this old, apparently inoperable, Sprunger jointer when I was much younger. Over the years, I watched it continue to accumulate dust as it sat in the corner, never repaired to be used. My dad kind of got away from any woodworking since that time, but I’ve developed a stronger interest. I have made efforts to “economically” outfit a respectable shop, and in that vain, was able to negotiate this salvageable piece of equipment for my own use. It is...

I will let the pics tell the story… I only had an hour in the workshop yesterday morning before having to go out… Purple Heart and Hoop Pine 325 mm by 325 mm cutting board destined for Saudi Arabia… Twice the glue up on one set of clamps… two blanks being glued for two more oil burners.. Cut the multi generation into an oval.. A little mineral spirits to pop the colours… This is now waiting for the Purple Heart to go back to purple… then it w...

Nicholson Bench #5: On a roll

11-08-2011 01:58 PM by mpmitche | 2 comments »

After I stopped working on my bench to build the planing stops I thought about some other things that needed to be done to move my project along quicker. I’ve been thinking about sharpening my rip saw again but have stalled it in my desire to work on the bench. Last night I found a finer file I picked up from Lie-Nielsen and touched up the saw. As I worked I could see that there were some area’s that I needed the work and as soon as I finished I gave it a test run. It melted t...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #516: Quality Takes Time

11-08-2011 01:48 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I finally got a bit caught up with my sleep. The last couple of days have been odd. I suppose getting up so early has something to do with it, coupled with the time spent at the saw. Yesterday I felt a bit tense, like everything was going on too quickly and I wasn’t able to keep up with things. Every time I tried to sit down and work, something else would pop up that needed my attention. As time passed on, I felt more and more anxiety because I know I wanted to get to a certain poin...

Refurbish Powermatic Table Saw #6: Table Saw Blade and Fence Alignment with Shop-Built Jig

11-08-2011 05:14 AM by bch | 3 comments »

Adjusting the Saw Blade Alignment, Again—This Time With A JigAs posted in the blog I aligned the table saw blade to the miter slot by clamping my dial indicator to my miter gauge. I knew this wouldn’t be perfect, but thought it would be good enough. However, after finishing the saw, doubts lingered. I had paid for In-Line Industries PALS after all—why not have it aligned perfectly? Last night after work I shamelessly copied ajosephg's shop-made jig on this post. ajosephg...
