Renovation - Industrial Warehouse #1: The Proud Pauper's Way

2005 days ago by Scott Parsons | 2 comments »

Well, it all started just a couple weeks before Christmas. I knew it was coming but didn’t appreciate the impact it would have. My girlfriend, Heather, and I decided that we wanted to live together but I didn’t want to leave my living space because it’s in the building I work in and I always wanted that warehouse living experience before I decided to truck it back out to the country. When I moved into this 500sq. foot shed-within-a-bigger-shed it was a nightmare. I kne...

Spraying a finish- stain

2067 days ago by James Lango | 9 comments »

Can anyone give me advice on spraying on stain.Every project I ever built was always hand stained. Now i hear/read more and more about spaying stain on. It seems to have its advantages, even coat, and less time consuming. From what i read, I would spray a stain on then rub off the excess. Can someone share their ideas or tips with me? I have a small (1/2 quart) spray gun and compressor- used for auto paint. Can i use that? If so- is HIGH pressure OK to spray stain? OR do i have to go ...

Commisions #11: pull out trash box #6 done (sort of)

2165 days ago by teenagewoodworker | 8 comments »

well here is the final post in my pull out trash box thing series. figure i’ll get right into it. first i started by adding some 45 blocks to the place where the trash can sits. i had to notch it because that drilling would have been pretty hard without a drill press. i notched it a bit to much though. and i used brass screws. why? because they were the only ones that were short enough to not go through my surface. but to sound smart just in-case someone missed the bucket its good th...

2176 days ago by teenagewoodworker | 13 comments »

So here is the entry of my pull out trash can box thing where i show the finish. due to prefinishing i have already done most of the finishing and put some parts together so i figured i would show that now. and then next week i will probably have the finished project up. so to start of course i sanded the piece to 180. i would not recommend using sycamore with hand tools. it doesn’t work well at all, and its hard to tell which way the grain is running. dovetails are really hard with syc...
