Walnut and Oak Entrance Shelf #2: Routing Template, Sanding

04-12-2011 08:07 AM by superstretch | 2 comments »

Tonight I was finally able to use the 1” flush trim bit I got at Lowes the other day and trim back the edge of the shelf top to the template. With the template removed: Finally, after getting the edges sanded and the rounded profile made more round (with my new Rikon 1” belt/5” disk sander), the top/edges/ends sanded with 400 grit, and a quick wet down (to raise grain and get some of the dust out of the walnut grain): Next up is making final cuts to the back...

The F word!!

04-08-2011 10:02 PM by Div | 28 comments »

Well, actually the S word, but the S word is part of the F word anyway…..............................???? I need all the help I can get…..I do have the Wood Spirit looking out for me…..or is it that fellow that sits on our shoulders…. Busy sanding a 4.1m long African mahogany top for a very long built in desk with drawers. 4.1m is about 161 inches for those who still prefer to measure with King George’s thumb……I think it was his thumb, I know it was some king’s thumbR...

My "Bucket List" #4: Segmant 3: Finally finished with the table.

04-07-2011 08:06 PM by therookie | 4 comments »

Well I can cross the table off my bucket list. I am extremley happy with the way it turned out for me being a novice woodworker and all. Here is the completed table with the carvings and the finish put on. Now I was going to carve the pecans in but I thought they would show up better if I burned them in so that is what I did. When I was making the center pedestal, I thought of trying to turn one but decided against it because I have never turned anything. So I made a Hexagon Bas...

Not enough guys make wooden utensils for families to buy. I took my wooden coffee coaster sets to the senior center to sell on commission in their store. They requested for me to make wooden utensils for people to buy for their kitchens and they believe the wooden utensils would be a fast seller in their store so I am designing a set for them to sell in their store. I won’t charge a arm and a leg for them as I want my set to be affordable to families. My thoughts are if you put a littl...

Chip Carving Class - Quilt Squares #14: Lesson 8 - Applying a Finish

04-04-2011 09:49 PM by MyChipCarving | 19 comments »

Applying a finish to your completed chip carving is a “make or break” step. Do it well and your chip carving comes to life and is something wonderful to behold. Do it poorly and your carving loses the beauty and the finish detracts from the chip carved design. Follow this lesson closely from start to finish and you’ll find success with each chip carving you complete from here on out. I call this the My Chip Carving Quick & Easy Finish Step 1 – Remove leftover...

Combo Drum Sander #3: Surface Sander, cabinet, specs, cost, observations

04-03-2011 09:55 PM by tyka | 7 comments »

This is the last of three parts detailing how I made the sander. Part 3 provides details for the surface sander attachment, photos of the final combo sander, specs, dimensions, comments, observations and a cost estimate. I found the sander too heavy to lug around and too high to use on my bench or assembly table. It’s now on a rolling cabinet made with ¾” plywood. The cabinet has two large drawers and storage in the back for the Surface Sanding Table, a place to hang a large push stick on ...

Walnut and Oak Entrance Shelf #1: Basic construction

03-30-2011 10:39 PM by superstretch | 6 comments »

Its been a while since I’ve posted anything project-related. My time has been consumed with work-work and not wood work. So my wife has this table which she moved into the house when we got married. I can’t stand the thing and it is constantly being bumped, knocked over, and hit into the wall. Its ugly, veneered, and flimsy so I’ve tried everything short of burning it to get it out of there. Finally my wife told me to make something to replace it or get lost. My...

How I loaded huge walnut log

03-20-2011 11:56 PM by Built2Last | 9 comments »

Since I built my sawmill a year or so ago, I’ve had one major problem. Getting logs here to mill.I tried using my log arch but, with a 24” diameter log on it, there is no fun at all in pulling it on the highway with a big log, “just a swingin” behind you, held by a couple of straps, on a trailer with no springs. I’ve tried pulling them on the trailer and then pulling them off, but that way tearing up my trailer. My trailer is a 20 footer, abou...
