So here is part two of this series on making these desks. I show you how I layout my sheet goods and yes I did solve my quandary of the pencil drawer grain. So I hope that this is entertaining and educational for all.

Mounting Live Edge Turning

08-14-2010 07:39 PM by scrappy | 11 comments »

Just thought I would post a little blog on how I mount a Live Edge Turning in order to finish off the bottom of the piece. When starting your tun, you can use a turning plate or chuck to hold the bottom and turn the outside and inside. But when you want to finish off the piece, that live edge doesn’t give you anywhere to grip. I saw one of these mounts in the Mine is a LOT cheesier design, but only cost penny’s to make. Started with a scrap of wood, a ...

Project SC #4: Its like that and thats the way it is

08-12-2010 05:10 PM by BritBoxmaker | 31 comments »

So 1st fallback reached yesterday. I have to border the pattern. For the pattern glue-ups I used a traditional glue, PVA. This is good for this purpose but if I had mitred all edges (and the top) the tiny 1mm squares at each corner might not have held on at all. Worse still is the possibility that they would chip off over time. So bordered it is. Using 7mm strips of Purpleheart I set out the patterns to give me an overall idea of what it would look like. I then labelled everything s...

Sanding is for the Birds

08-08-2010 05:10 AM by Chefdavid | 10 comments »

I am new to LJ but not new to woodworking. I have been building and collecting the tools of the trade for about 7 years. I enjoy designing, than building, and finishing. The one thing that I truly do not enjoy doing is sanding. I have a palm sander, orbital sander, belt sander, oscillating edge/belt/spindle sander, and a hand sander. With all that cool equipment and my search to make it more enjoyable I have just ended up with more toys and dust. I am currently working on a loft bed for my d...

Desk Build #1: Layout & Milling Materials

08-05-2010 02:14 PM by Huckleberry | 3 comments »

I know this is a little out of order but I needed to get started on these desks ahead of the garbage can containers. What is great about these desks is that we will be using different kinds of joinery. We’ll be laminating the legs, pocket hole joinery for the aprons and top. Plus there will be some edge banding happening too. You will also see how I build my drawer boxes and the material that I use for this in future episodes. Don’t forget to sign up for Huck’s (hucksdi...

It failed, I can attest to that. Rejoining sanding belts

08-04-2010 05:20 AM by Karson | 17 comments »

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...

techniques #6: tattoo removal via handheld sander

07-22-2010 01:53 PM by Gary Fixler | 12 comments »

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....

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #47: A New (Self) Challenge

07-20-2010 01:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

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 ...
