Sanding for total absolute beginners. What you shoud know.

10-03-2010 11:03 PM by Stevinmarin | 27 comments »

A lot of us take sanding wood for granted, yet it is the most basic skill we need to know about woodworking. I’ve often quipped that woodworking is 10% design, 10% construction, and 80% sanding. But with all the grades of sandpaper available, it’s something that can easily confuse the beginning woodworker. In this video, I have tried to boil sandpaper down to its basics.

A WOODTURNED RECIPE HOLDER EASEL. (CS1 Kitchen Challenge)

09-27-2010 01:42 AM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 16 comments »

This is not a brand new project. I submitted it, because of a request by MsDebbieP for the CS1 Kitchen challenge. I was out in the shop one day, & thought to myself, what can I make? I said, how about making a recipe holder easel for Barb’s kitchen. So I dug out some pieces of wood from my scrap bin, & proceeded with the project. I didn’t have a plan, but I knew what I wanted it to look like, so the first thing I made was the main spindle post. Then I ma...

Splines vs Biscuit Joiner #8: Finally it is FINISHED!

09-26-2010 10:50 PM by RonPeters | 8 comments »

Ok, I’ve been working on this for about 18 months. A little here and a little there… a piece at a time. It’s finally finished and now I can move on to making instruments. I never built a bench, or anything else – unless you consider that bowl I turned in wood shop 45 years ago? – so there was some learning curve involved. I never: made box joints or drawers, glued up a top, made and installed mortise & tenon’s, installed a vice – let alone two ...

these are two spoons i made for a friend of mine in Arizona, one is a ladle and the other is a spoon, the ladle is made from red cedar and the spoon is made from sassafras , i used my scroll saw to cut part of the shape, then i used my dremel, my foredom and hand chisels to create the hollowed out portions, these were the first kitchen items i have made and they were fun, although taxing for someone who has carpel tunnel or arthritis…but they were enjoyable to make and certainly enjoya...

Oak Pub Table #4: Glue ups and sanding are finished

09-03-2010 05:25 AM by VinnieP | 1 comment »

I am ever so close to staining. All of the gluing and sanding is done as of now. I’m going to give everything a once over to see if there are any more spots that needed sanding. Otherwise, I’m ready to start staining. I am going to stain the top before attaching it. Here is the post all glued up: This is a close up of the arms. The groove you see was routed in. The buttons I made previously will help connect the top. This is how it looks without the top on: And h...

SPIRAL DESIGN #2: The construction...Selection of wood

08-31-2010 03:45 PM by BertFlores58 | 9 comments »

It took me a different trial of wood samples. Since the plan is to have it done in endgrain, I have to select the wood that will not break at thickness of 7 mm or nearly 3/16 inch. I used my own strength for testing it. I have found several strong wood mostly 2/3. Cut them into desired pieces and looks like this. Another difficulty is select proper combinations of color depending on the design. I need some contrast to emphasize the design. I have to test the pieces by spraying wa...

08-26-2010 02:35 PM by rivergirl | 18 comments »

Every morning when I wake up my whole body hurts. Even the bottom of my feet hurt. I shuffle around the house like Sand Paper Sally. It’s no wonder my floors have no finish left on them. When I die, My tombstone will read: ” Here lies Sand Paper Sally…”
