Turkey strutting his Stuff

09-30-2013 11:11 PM by Jim Earl | 5 comments »

A while ago I ask you to come up with new ideas for me to use my talent. One of you said to try nature, tree’s animals, then someone said Turkeys, OK I spent two days looking for the right picture. Then three days to come the stage I am now, I will try and go through each stage. and show how I come up t it. Stage one, looking for the right picture; Stage two was putting the pattern onto wood; and the third stage is doing the burning itself. I found a process which is, o...

In Russia #1: Happy Couple

09-22-2013 12:09 AM by Jim Earl | 3 comments »

I should start showing the beginning picture of my burnings so you can see what I work off of. OK I made a mistake, I did not take a picture before I started this burning so I hope you will be able to see the before and after. Here is a couple that has asked me to burn this as a special momenta. Trying to get the right picture done as a pattern isn’t that easy and sometimes it turns out the first few times. this one took about six time of reprinting. I do go through a lot of in...

Mission Style Pedestal Table #5: Applying finish and completing the build

06-10-2013 02:09 AM by Douglas | 6 comments »

After a few weeks away due to travel and rainy weather, I was finally able to finish the table. The formula I was following was similar to what I used on an earlier folding step stool water based Transtint dye, sprayed shellac, and then as this was a table, Arm-R-Seal oil & urethane topcoat. I started with the dye, first wetting everything to raise grain, and then light sanding with 220 to knock down the stander uppers. I then mixed the Transtint Mission Brown dye power with distiller...

Denver wood refinishing #1: The walnut door

04-23-2013 03:31 PM by MigWoodwork | 0 comments »

I recently worked on a customers Walnut entry way here in Denver. The door was previously finished with a water based stain and varnish. He already had it refinished 3 times in the last 5 years by the same person who finished it in the first place and got tired of refinishing it almost yearly. It’s no wonder that he had to refinish his wooden door so often if you use water based products outdoors. In my opinion these are made for interior use only. I used a high quality marine spar varn...

My Fuji Mini-Mite 4 Experience #2: Another Update and Bigger Plastic Jar Tutorial

03-28-2013 04:28 PM by NiteWalker | 4 comments »

So when I last posted, I was having trouble with getting the #3 and #4 needles to fit without quite a bit of adjustment to the packing nut on the gun. Since then I’ve tried the following: new #3 needle sets from amazon and fuji, a new #4 set and a new xpc spray gun from fuji. I’m sad to say that nothing worked and the issue persists. Realistically, it probably won’t be a real world issue as everything I spray works perfectly with the #3 needle. But I just feel there should b...

My Fuji Mini-Mite 4 Experience #1: Initial Impressions and Follow-Up

03-17-2013 05:10 PM by NiteWalker | 0 comments »

Since I’ve been documenting everything about my experience with the Fuji Mini-Mite 4 I decided to collect all the info in a blog series. So here we go! Backstory (skip past this if you just want to read my impressions of the fuji):For about a year I used a Qualspray QS-125WB from homestead finishing with my makita twin stack compressor. I also opted for the bigger 20 oz cup since it was to be my main spray setup. In that year I used the gun a lot, and it worked great, but the comp...

Three New Projects

02-23-2013 05:05 AM by MT_Stringer | 2 comments »

This pile of lumber may not look like much but it will magically turn in to two of my Fishy Coffee Tables and a Toy Box. :-) Turns out I need another 10 feet of white pine, so off to the store I go tomorrow. It makes it easy that a lot of the work for all three projects can be done ahead of time in a batch. Things like ripping the edges off the 2×4’s and ripping the 1×12 white pine into three pieces each. All of that was after I cut them into rough lengths so it would be ea...
