1950s Cass Toy Co Chest Restoration #1: Research and Documentation

03-01-2015 10:23 PM by JenTWG | 3 comments »

This chest is my father’s and he asked if I would restore it for him and fix most of the damage. I first started by researching the chest. I knew by stripping the chest I would most likely loose the images either with a chemical stripper to replace/repair the finish or by sanding. I wanted to see if the manufacturer still existed and could be contacted for information or help during this process. Turns out Cass Toy Company is no longer in business and was destroyed in a fire i...

HVLP Advice

02-09-2015 01:51 AM by DocK16 | 3 comments »

I picked up a Fuji HVLP sprayer a couple years ago at an auction thinking I would need it someday; well that day has come, I need to spray 35 kitchen doors and drawers and I must profess my ignorance on where to start. I want to spray varnish (not water base) with it but I have a few questions. Can you spray polyurethane with an HVLP gun? If yes how much does it have to be thinned and what kind/size spray tip do you need. Any knowledgeable advice would be greatly appreciated.

A non-plywood 4 drawer filing cabinet #2: A half scale prototype

01-15-2015 08:25 AM by GCM | 0 comments »

This is my half size prototype made entirely out of pallet wood (besides hardware).Finish is home made chalk paint with a wax finish (shabby chic) – the finish doesn’t photo very well but I am very happy with it, it came out the best I have been able to achieve so far. This size is perfect for DVDs etc. (I did a more thorough write up but the text disappear after I uploaded the pictures for some reason).

Work Shop Organization #1: Power Tool Storage

01-01-2015 02:15 PM by Nate66 | 1 comment »

In trying to keep my workshop organized and clutter free so I can work at my bench without having to search for tools, I found a definite need for somewhere to keep my power tools besides in their original boxes. Their original boxes keeps them organized, however, it makes them less accessible and frankly a pain in the rear to unpack and repack the tool each time it is used. Also the original boxes take up a lot of storage space when you have a confined space to work in to start with. ...

Entering the home stretch....

08-29-2014 08:18 AM by ajw1978 | 2 comments »

Don’t want to jinx it by gloating too much, but coming into the end of my most satisfying accomplishment yet. Building a trophy/plaque/award in honor of a lost friend. A last minute thing that had to be ready to go Sunday morning. Tapped the bullpen and called in the old man, who introduced me to Rockler where I found two pieces of walnut crotch that I said would “make do.” Sanded. Stained. Somehow, put a perfect edge on the base with the router; didn’t screw up the...

A non-plywood 4 drawer filing cabinet #1: The design

04-30-2014 09:29 AM by GCM | 0 comments »

Here is my attempt to build an affordable wooden 4 drawer filing cabinet. I rule out: Plwood, as it is way too expensive in Australia for anything but the most expensive style of furniture.MDF, I built a single draw prototype and, even when using frame construction, it was way too heavy.Melamine, may be a good choice but for this project I don’t think it looks good enough.Solid wood, as it is too expensive. My current choice is to go with premium (knot free) pine and pine panel...
