American flag bench #4: Torched the slats then sanded them down to 320 grit. Stained the red stripes

11-20-2018 07:38 PM by Dubbs | 0 comments »

So I torched the slats in an attempt to make it look more rustic. Sanded them down to 320 grit. I found the poplar sort of burns blotchy or I’m just not too good at it yet. Had Hoe Depot mix up some blue and red stain for me. ($32) Also picked up oil based spa urethane high gloss (expensive.. but I told worth it.)I was able to get the union marked and taped and stained the red stripes! I think it came out pretty good. Cant wait to lay out the star stickers for the union. to b...

Salvaged lumber table top #1: Found lumber in the woods

09-27-2018 08:19 PM by RBurke83 | 5 comments »

So I bought a house about a year ago and while walking around the property I found this fairly large piece of lumber that was partially sunken into the forest floor. After more inspection I decided to remove it today with the goal of a massively thick three slab dining room table top. The board is, after cutting off about 18” that was damaged at the end, 21’3/4” long, 14.5” wide, and 4.5” thick. After I determined it wasn’t cedar (I sometimes build kayaks), i cu...

Wooden Shackles #2: Fun with Shapes and Styles

09-26-2018 11:17 PM by AceofHearts | 0 comments »

A few days work and some playing i got some interesting designs for my shackles so far, the next batch I will push the designs a bit further and try to incorporate more detail work. These are just from 2×4 and 2×6 pine lumber from Home Depot so they’re really soft and somewhat hard to work with for this. I’m still new to woodworking so I’m making lots of mistakes, this keeps me confident that I will improve and so will my work over time. The shackles I have ...

Project Build #1: Barn Door Console with Plans

07-20-2018 05:30 PM by TimberAndAshDesigns | 0 comments »

With the Farmhouse fad and the number of DIYers at its peak I found myself in a unique situation of serving multiple clients while only building one piece of furniture. I rarely build the same item twice so having a detailed sketch or plan is not the norm in my shop. Usually I will have several sketches, sometimes rough CAD style drawings but never a full blueprint of what I will be building. For this project I decided to take the design aspect one step further and create reproducible plan...

Bath Stool #8: Rounding and learning

05-07-2018 04:35 PM by Diego Cassels | 4 comments »

Tusk through tenon!! The name is common but its the first for me. I scratch a line to have a reference to drill, then squared it with a chisel. The key was made with the same wood, “quebracho colorado”. Hard to fit but the en result looked good to me! Then I ronded the seat corners with a router and lots of sanding. LOTS!!! I had to do a dry test, the photos don`t do it justice! Here you have a closeup of the tusked tenon. Well a touch there and another over t...
