Building our own washer, dryer pedestals. #2: Some progress pictures.

1603 days ago by Dick, & Barb Cain | 22 comments »

I’ve been poking along with this project, fitting it in with other chores around the house. It seems like as a person gets older, it takes more time to get anything done, but it gradually gets done.. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~After attaching the side panels, I glued in a piece of foam pad as a silencer. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ To stretch my plywood, plus protect the ply edges, I glued ...

I’d like to start by saying thanks to all the positive people here on LJ.

To give a proper thanks to the LJ community and to contribute to the advancement of all our skills and enjoyment, here is another video.This video is on scratch stocks; a simple way to make molding. In combination with the router I show how to design and make a cutter that creat...

Routing Inlays #1: TWO CELTIC PATTERNS SIMPLIFIED

1605 days ago by Maclegno | 14 comments »

INTRODUCTION.. When I started experimenting with using my router for inlays I thought only in the context of straight lines since that was what routers did best. Unfortunately my tastes in designs included Celtic Art especially Knot-work which is mostly curves. These would obviously need some sort of template to guide the router. A cursory inspection of a typical Celtic Knot suggests that they are too complex for a simple template. However a closer examination and study convinced me that s...

Part 2 - The Bed is Finished #1: Some early pictures

1613 days ago by davidroberts | 3 comments »

The title is a little misleading. The bed is actually refinished. This was a project 2 years in the making. A neighbor grew tired of her grandmothers bed set sitting on her back porch and offered it to me two summers ago. Her idea was I would refinish it for my then 13 year old daughter. It was made sometime before 1936 and is a nice old piece, well made and in need of some TLC. I jumped at the chance to hone my finishing/refinishing skills, since I don’t have any to speak of. Wh...

Unisaw Torsion Box Fence Table #5: 7 coats of polyurethane and counting.....

1613 days ago by Ger21 | 1 comment »

The day after my last post, I routed the rabbitt around the edge, and glued in the Bubinga border. I used a block plane and scraper to get it even with the rest of the top. I gave up on sanding out the tool marks from the surfacing operation, thinking the polyurethane would make them disappear. Almost, but not quite. From what I’ve seen, it appears that the epoxy didn’t actually seal the end grain, it just ran right through it. I applied the first coat of polyurethane very ...

Tool Gloat

1615 days ago by davidroberts | 15 comments »

OK, I’ve got a tool gloat. I normally only buy woodworking tools used or on sale. This purchase is arguably one of my best. Reguarly $119 at Lowes, this Porter Cable 4210 Type 1 12” Dovetail Jig (for half blind and sliding dovetails) was a display and had been marked down a couple of times. When I saw it the price was $50. But that’s not what I paid. I know dovetails are the center of the universe for some, but I have never cut a dovetail, well a few sliding dovetails on...

Beefing up the jamb to my new shop door.

1620 days ago by 559dustdesigns | 0 comments »

Here is part two of my attempt at installing a new shop door. I again bought a cheap door and I am doing my best to reinforce the door and jamb from possibly being kicked in. I know this isn’t the most professional job, but I should only have about $150.00 into this project. The new door looks twice as good and is much more secure. In order to reinforce the jamb I first upgraded the strike plate which I showed in blog part 1. http://lumberjocks.com/559dustdesigns/blog/14664Today I f...
