Refinishing a China Hutch Pt 1

I started to refinish a china hutch that has been sitting in my shop for a while now. I started with sanding it down, then taking it outside to start spraying it. I’m trying out a sprayer from Harbor Freight. Mother Nature got in the way and kept me from finishing the project, but here is the beginning.

Refinish a Table Top #3: Completed Refinishing this Coffee Table Top

01-18-2017 03:59 AM by HappyHowie | 2 comments »

I completed spraying the polyurethane finish on this table. I had a few spots that I scuffed sanded on the lower portion of the table. I applied some of my dye mix to those areas. I made sure the remainder of the table was clean and then sprayed a light coat of finish to the lower portion of this table. I will give this table tonight and most of the morning tomorrow to dry. Once it checks okay I will apply a thin coat of dark brown Briwax and buff that thoroughly. I have already told...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1209: Two New Projects on the Go

01-04-2014 01:31 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

You know you have a pretty good life when you wake up in the morning and there are so many (good!) things that you need to do that you don’t know what to begin with. I can’t tell you how many times that has happened to me lately. It seems that more so than ever I have more ideas and projects in my head than time. And that is a wonderful feeling. After taking my week or so off from designing, I find that more so than ever I just can’t wait to get back at it. Even though...

Restoring An Old Butcher Block

12-28-2013 01:31 PM by JayG46 | 3 comments »

I’m home for Christmas and naturally, my mom gave me a project to keep me busy. Since it was woodworking related, I was more than happy to take it on. About thirty years ago, my parents bought a maple butcher block from a restaurant supply store. It has been a part of their kitchen ever since and has held up pretty well, all things considered. But over time, it has become a little grimy it was definitely time for a serious refinishing. We don’t have a powered sander here, so...

Refinishing Sailboat Tiller Handle

12-12-2011 06:36 AM by Sailor | 0 comments »

I decided the tiller handle on my little Montgomery 17 sailboat needed refinishing so I got down to business. It wasn’t a very difficult project so I made a quick video of it and I thought it may interest a few people.

From Southwest to Contemporary

05-27-2011 05:58 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 20 comments »

Right Click to DownloadRight Click to Download in HDSubscription Options My mom’s house is full of cabinet doors that were made in a Southwestern style and its time for a change. Replacing the cabinets is certainly an option and just replacing the doors alone would work too. But what if we could use our woodworking skills to modify the doors instead. In our situation, this turned out to be the perfect solution. So join me as I show you how to carefully modify and refinish my momR...

Restoring furniture from the Golden Oak period.

10-05-2010 05:43 PM by poopiekat | 13 comments »

I was hooked on woodworking as a lad in the 1960’s, my junior-high shop classes sealed the deal for me. I have always had a workshop of some kind, and apprenticed in architectural interiors when I started working for a living. When this was my vocation, I dabbled in antiques also, specializing in oak furniture which by the ‘70s had generally fallen out of favor with new households. This type of furniture was coming onto the market in droves at the time, in favor of the emerging...

OK, I’m actually already nearing completion of the 2nd piece which looks much better, but for this post, I’ll focus on my first-first experience with spraying, and the overall look, and results. So.

I came back and sanded it thoroughly with 600grit sandpaper. the results were mixed: Newly finished piece in front, Original finish to compare in back Cons:1. I had some runs which show in the f...

Adventures in Spraying #2: First Spray Job Done (sort of)

07-02-2010 10:57 PM by PurpLev | 13 comments »

We had the day off today at the office, so I figured this is as good a time to spray some finish. Fist thing first. I had to setup a way to spray while keeping the area somewhat separated from the rest of the basement in fear of contamination of the rest of the things. I also wanted to have a way to rotate the work so that I can spray all sides without having to walk around and being in the direction of the air flow (I have a box fan in the window to pull out the overspray etc. I initia...
