Stationary Belt Sander #1: SCORE!!!

08-08-2008 11:38 AM by SteveKorz | 23 comments »

A very good friend of mine has a father that is an avid woodworker. He chip carves, and makes many other things such as wooden spoons and the like on his drawhorse. He’s a very talented man. Anyway, he decided that he wanted a new stationary belt sander, and bought one. The older stationary sander was a Craftsman, and it had a few years under its belt. The sander sat in the corner of the barn near the tractors, and one day my friend asked his dad if he wanted to get rid of it. He ...

Sweeping Juniper Coffee Table #4: Sanding on the juniper base

08-06-2008 06:20 AM by Tim & Candy Hicks | 1 comment »

As you can see, all the crevices have been sandblasted, the gray wood has been taken down to the rich wood grain and the gold is turning to blonde. This has been sanded with an electric sander and now I have about half a day of handsanding to make sure there are not any scratches, then it will be time ot build the legs. There is something very alluring about the movement of this wood, it can be so wild looking, yet so calm that it just pulls you in.

Sweeping Juniper Coffee Table #2: The table top. 70% Sanded

08-06-2008 06:10 AM by Tim & Candy Hicks | 1 comment »

Here is the top, it is 70% sanded. You can see the large crack around the center of the the hearts, we will fill these cracks in with inlay and add some to the other side as well so we can balance it out. We add a tempered hardboard to the underside of the top, this adds extra stability and seems to help the wood from twisting over time plus with a few wood screws, bolts and gorrilla glue, it is a great way to attach the top to the base. We knocked the dark spot out of the...

08-06-2008 02:28 AM by Tim & Candy Hicks | 4 comments »

We have had many requests for coffee tables, so we are making them as fast as we can. We plan on making 2 more coffee tables and I think the next two will have glass tops, anyway here is the project that I am working on. This table has a “sweeping” movement to it.

We will also have to add a couple of legs so that it will stand without sitting on a base ...

Set number two: I really like that t-rex. Also put together a couple of dragons: And my little dragon took right to them. I’m going to re-design the red dragon so the wings come off the body like the t-rex legs, I think that will give it more pop. The dragons are painted with milk based paints and the dinos are finished with salad bowl finish.
