Well I’d like to report that I was unable to repair my sanding belts. I did have a success the next day doing something else. My belts were 1” X 42” and were made with a Zerconia Grit and were 120 grit. While talking to the supplier of these belts Supergrit in Gettysburg, PA I told her that the belts were failing after putting them on the sander. The splice is failing within 1 minute. She asked when I bought them. I told here maybe 5 years ago. She stated that was p...
This is a table with raw wood, i am going to change the tabletop as soon as i can with a more interesting essence… do you have any suggestion?! http://s844.photobucket.com/albums/ab2/sikkolo/Raw%20woodend%20table/?albumview=slideshow
It’s mildly gruesome, if very low-quality – fair warning – but here’s a page with a video of a unique use for the Black & Decker Mega Mouse (the one with the comfort gel pads on top) – sanding out an unwanted tattoo. The guy laying on the ground and having his left pectoralis major sanded to a vivid crimson seems unaffected by it, but also seems a little surprised when he sees it, stating “Wow, that s**t pulled me open pretty good.” Indeed....
I really appreciated the positive feedback on the Gothic Bat Candle Tray yesterday. It was a wonderful boost and some great suggestions were made. I am extremely intrigued by the Inlace Metal Dust that was suggested and I think that I have got to get my hands on some. Getting it here in Canada may be a challenge though as a friend of mine who does beautiful turning told me about it a while back and I couldn’t find any. I guess I have to hit Google and see what I can see. That would ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #43: Sometimes the Lazy Way is More Work Then Anticipated (But We Learn Something)
OK. This is getting scary. Do we only get so many good days in a given time period? Or are we really the masters of our own destiny? I am probably over-reacting, but I just really like when things work out like you want them to. I am kind of hoping that it is because thought and planning went into something that it turns out well. That gives us some sense of control. I would hate to think that it is only by chance. So where were we? Ah, yes. The autumn leaf candle tray. As I was sa...
I had an old oregon pine painted door that was in pieces – unfortunately we did not take a photo of it, but we have another door that is the same design and I will take a picture of that. Hubby first decided to repair the door but as I had no use for a door we decided to leave the old paint on, cut it into two and turn them into mirrors. After hubby did the woodworking part of the project, I sanded down all the loose paint. Painted a soft blue over and then finished it with a gal...
This chest is a class project I did. The design is not mine; the instructor (Jim Vice) provided this design. It took many hours to build and covers many woodworking techniques. It is currently not quite finished yet. I still have to make walnut plugs and cover those screw holes, secure the top, chose some know (I am thinking brass) and of course apply a finish. We primarily used Ash throughout. The drawer dividers, back and bottom are plywood. I chose sapele for the drawer front inl...
So I came home from work one day to find the February 2008 copy of Woodworker’s Journal out on the kitchen table with a post-it-note on it that said, “Make me one of these except with dolphins.” The article was about a bandsawn box with a ying-yang design. My wife saw that it was made with a bandsaw and wanted me to make it because she’s still mad at me for buying the band saw and not telling her until afterward. Now I announce to her every time I use it so that she...
Ah… finally some woodworking at last. I don’t really have any time or the mind space lately to focus on construction and creation much, and it felt like I was just collecting tools as of late. All with the preparation of ‘one day’ to be able to get to things. As it happens, I am able to dedicate a little time for some refinishing jobs as I don’t really need to think much for those, and it’s easier for me to get in the zone and just go at it. First ...
