Finishing Info for the Woodworker #2: Wood Prep Before Finishing

01-20-2015 03:40 AM by pjones46 | 1 comment »

Wood prep before finishing The secret to perfect finish is proper sanding of your project. All surfaces should be clean and free from all dirt and oils. Prep sanding is done with progressively finer grits. On unfinished wood, prepare the surface by using medium grit paper first, and then progress to finer grades. With most raw woods, if you are hand sanding, start sanding in the direction of the grain using a #100-150 grit paper before staining and work up to #220 grit paper. You can make ...

A non-plywood 4 drawer filing cabinet #2: A half scale prototype

01-15-2015 08:25 AM by GCM | 0 comments »

This is my half size prototype made entirely out of pallet wood (besides hardware).Finish is home made chalk paint with a wax finish (shabby chic) – the finish doesn’t photo very well but I am very happy with it, it came out the best I have been able to achieve so far. This size is perfect for DVDs etc. (I did a more thorough write up but the text disappear after I uploaded the pictures for some reason).

How to make a Fire Wood Holder from an old washing machine Tub.

01-12-2015 04:37 AM by cpine | 3 comments »

This old washing machine tub was what my father used in our home growing unto store firewood by the fire place. When my father passed away in November of 2012 and upon the settling of his estate I was able to get this item with all of its sentimental value to me for use in my home. To many folks including many in my family this is just an old piece of junk. It indeed could be sold for scrap metal I suppose but I like my fathers idea and I suspect he got this from his parents home in Iowa. I...

01-05-2015 04:02 PM by Marshall | 2 comments »

Well after many hours in my cold shop and a couple of trips to my neighbor’s cabinet shop, the table top is ready for finishing. I have to thank my neighbor, who owns a home remodeling company, for offering me the use of his cabinet shop. It saved me probably two full days of flattening the top First, I glued up the top and then took it back to the cabinet shop to flatten and sand down to 150 on their massive 54” wide-belt sander. They also cut it to length for me on their A...

Walnut Slabs #1: Today I purchased two georgous walnut slabs and sanded to a smooth surface

01-04-2015 08:00 AM by Rob Drown | 3 comments »

Today I was at a friends shop learning how to do a polished finish as part of an apprenticeship program of The Sierra Nevada Fine Furniture Makers Guild and ended up purchasing and sanding down these two amazing walnut slabs. Now I have to figure out what exactly to do with them. I think the first one is going to become my apprenticeship project. I am thinking the slab will be a tabletop with continuous grain apron and a center drawer. Not sure about the legs.
