Finishing

05-05-2010 10:41 PM by Hisingwooddesign | 9 comments »

What Type of finish do you use? Finishing is a common question among woodworkers. I know for me when I first started finishing it was almost dreadful. I loved to build things but when it came to finishing I almost wanted to leave it bare wood. I built a oak dart board, I guess you could call it a case several years back and when it came time to finish it I ruined it. I applied two many coats two fast and didn’t take the propper steps to apply a quality finish. When it was done I thr...

Lumber

Hi Cody I am a tile setter who recently got into woodworking as a hobby over the last year and I’m not in to making anything to big or fancy really just some little projects around the house as well as remodeling my home. I have been having some trouble finding good hard wood and the prices are really high. With the current economy I thought prices would be down a little but I guess not. Well anyways so far I have been getting my wood from the local home depot and ace hardware but I wa...

Saving up for a Worksharp station.2 – I have no idea how to “refurbish” hand planes3 – I have no skill with a hand plane. Need to find ...

Skills Building #3: Clock Project - Resawing, Bookmatching Panels

05-03-2010 03:08 PM by NewPickeringWdWrkr | 0 comments »

Okay, I took a break from the Slat clock to make a Spagnuolo Contemporary Clock and that was an adventure in mitres. After taking some time to reorganize the shop and do a cleanup, I got back at the Slat Clock that I’ve been working on. My plan calls for a 8 1/2” clock face and the material I had chosen is maple as I picked some up at a discount from a retired table maker. The score on that buy was that it has some minor spalting in some areas. At least I think it’s sp...

Jigs and techniques #1: Cheap & Simple Mortise Jig

05-03-2010 04:29 AM by GregD | 2 comments »

What should be the first entry in this series is my really simple table saw panel cutting and edge jointing jig. This is my my take on a mortise jig for a plunge router. I wanted to keep it as simple to build and as inexpensive as possible, but I also wanted it to produce good results for a rookie because I was going to use it for my first attempt and a M&T joint. Now that I’ve verified that it works well, I’ll probably add a toggle clamp or two for holding the work. T...

Working a Slab by Hand

04-27-2010 05:41 PM by davemoorefurniture | 29 comments »

If you have ever had material that is too large for your machines, fear not. In this video I demonstrate how I use a set of planes to achieve a time honored technique by flattening, thicknessing, and joining a live-edge, cherry table top. I hope you enjoy and please feel free to give me feedback so that I may improve in both my woodworking and video abilities.

Check this out at www.hisingwooddesign.com I have been woodworking for about ten years as a hobby and recently have been thinking about the idea of starting my own woodworking business.
