Japanese Garden Bench #5: Finishing Up

03-07-2009 06:25 AM by newTim | 4 comments »

By popular demand. ;) So here’s the finished project with the first coat of stain. I made some modifications to the original plans one of which is the seat height. At 6’5” it is perfect for me, but about an 1” too tall for my wife who’s about 5’8”. The bench is very sturdy and relatively light weight since it is made out of redwood. I imagine it would be much heavier if I had used oak. Like I said before, this was a fun project and not too diffi...

Juniper Log Furniture : Floor Lamp #1: Wicked Floor Lamp, what ribbon like movement

03-06-2009 10:09 PM by Tim & Candy Hicks | 3 comments »

Nothing like having numerous projects to work on This lamp is very ribbon like; really flat but with lots of movement. It does have a small burl. The base will be cut down to size which will also shorten the lamp so that it is not so tall. We will scribe fit the lamp limb to fit the base. I have started sanding the limb and my husband has been working on the base.

Burled Juniper Log Floor Lamp #2: Ready to drill holes

03-06-2009 09:56 PM by Tim & Candy Hicks | 6 comments »

I got the limb 100% sanded, my husband is inlaying turquoise in the base, next we will drill the holes for the cord. The dark spot you can see on the base is where we applied sanding sealer, there is a bit of rot so this helps harden the wood and it also keeps the glue from staining the wood when we inlay the turquoise.

Here is the larger coffee table base. Ready to be sprayed. We will spray them with Satin Polycrylic and most likely have to flip it upside down and spray the bottome with couple of coats and when that is dry, flip it back over and do the top part.

Juniper Coffee Table Base #2 #5: Ready to Spray the Finish

03-06-2009 09:39 PM by Tim & Candy Hicks | 1 comment »

The creative process of building the supports for the glass top took longer than expected, but then again we always expect the unexepected, so then again we did expect it. Hahaha did that make sense? Anyway here it is, we are hoping to spray them tomorrow and sunday if the wind does not blow like mad.

random #3: Anthropomorphic tools - My DeWALT sander is watching me

02-28-2009 01:39 AM by Gary Fixler | 10 comments »

I hadn’t noticed until now, but I think my little DeWALT ROS is a robot who’s been watching me now for more than a decade. At least he’s adorable, like a little puffer fish. I only hope his intentions are peaceful.

Wild Oregon Cherry Art Print Bin

02-24-2009 10:16 PM by David | 8 comments »

I just completed the art print bin being built for The Clearwater Gallery in Sisters, Oregon. This was a commissioned piece to hold shrink-wrapped art prints in the gallery. The owners felt that a wooden print bin would fit the character of the gallery better than a commercial steel bin. Music to this woodworker’s ears! Completed Print Bin The design was worked out with SketchUp and finalized with a mock-up built with pine and MDF using a Kreg Jig and pocket screw joinery. The ...

Here is the rough material. each stumo will sit on a base, the base it not necessary, it adds to the beauty
