Getting started.

04-20-2010 04:53 AM by Builder_Bob | 3 comments »

I recently finished building a federal style card table loosely patterned after the plan in FWW issue #59, “Federal Card Table” by Michael Dunbar. That table in turn is based on a piece from the period, thought to be from Baltimore. I still consider myself a newbie, and was shocked at how well the finished table came out! Now I’m going to make a second table with a few improvements. If you’d like to follow along I can promise you that we will take an interesting and unconve...

Hello Everyone, Back in February at the Taylor, MI Woodworking Shows, we had Matt Vanderlist of Matt's Basement Workshop come down with his camera equipment to film our demonstrations. We are so excited about this years products and wanted to share some of them with the world. And without the cover charge. Check out our YouTube channel, or, more specifically, click here for a playlist that shows all the videos in order. While we don’t make a lot of sawdust, we take our time to ...

Unisaw Torsion Box Fence Table #6: Almost ready to mount

04-10-2010 03:41 PM by Ger21 | 5 comments »

I lost count, but I think I have now applied about 12 coats of polyurethane. Nearly 1/2 gallon. After about 7 coats, the endgrain finally stopped soaking it in. So at that point, I basically had a 3/32” thick “plastic” top, as hard as a butcher block. Which is exactly what I wanted. I tried to put the poly on as thick as possible, sanding down all the high spots between coats. After the 7 coats, I realized it wasn’t as flat as I’d like, as I was sanding th...

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

04-08-2010 08:27 PM 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 ...

Routing Inlays #1: TWO CELTIC PATTERNS SIMPLIFIED

04-07-2010 04:20 AM 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

03-30-2010 05:59 AM 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.....

03-30-2010 01:51 AM 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 ...
