Sofa Table from tension wood #5: Preliminary finishing work

06-18-2018 11:21 PM by cathyb | 7 comments »

Today I am doing preliminary finish work. I like to have three coats of finish on all pieces before final assembly. It is at this point I address the negative and positive faces of book-matched wood. Experiment number one: Add sealer to the darker side and then finish to the lighter side, under the assumption that the darker side would absorb more finish and create the contrast. From the picture above, you can see this did not work. Experiment two (this is the nice thi...

Across the Bench from Charles #2: Devil's in the details

06-18-2018 03:30 AM by Monte Pittman | 15 comments »

Many things that I will probably cover are things that Charles has covered in videos on YouTube and his site. Always remember that he loves answering questions from folks and you can email him directly with them. So when I came, I wanted to dive in and learn how he does various things. So I bought a bunch of wood to build some simple projects to practice with. Boxes I always consider a good choice. You should always focus on every aspect of every project, but small projects like boxes emph...

Shop stuff #126: Fixing up my wind chimes.

06-13-2018 12:27 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

A couple of years ago my favourite set of wind chimes bit the dust. I grabbed some pressure treated fence boards I re claimed and with that, a bit of good string, a few knots and time I brought them back in a video titled “The one where I show my Ding Dong”....that’s not too much into click bait territory is it?

Across the Bench from Charles #1: The beginning

06-11-2018 01:26 AM by Monte Pittman | 25 comments »

Most don’t know that I shut down everything in the Black Hills of South Dakota and moved 1650 east to the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia. About last Christmas I told my wife that it was time to do something else. There’s probably a dozen or more personal reasons for us leaving SD. Those are too lengthy and family stuff to get into. However, there were mainly a few professional reasons for the move that really forced the issue. The hospital where I worked for 38 years is currentl...

DIY Jigs / How-to Woodworking #5: Magnetic Japanese Handsaw Guide

05-12-2018 06:42 PM by Humus Workshop | 6 comments »

Hi there! The nature of the project is so simple that I do not even need to upload so many photos, with just one is enough. The results, to be concise, is that this little jig has been very simple to do it and very effective at the same time. As a detail I can mention that I have covered the corners with a 1 mm acrylic sheet, this makes the blade does not touch directly the magnets to does not loose the alignment. In the following video you can watch my step by step to do it: https:...
