Thanks to everyone for sticking with me to the end. In this video I cover all the little things that have to happen before I can finish, as well as the finishing process itself.

Finishing #1: Blotch Control

03-20-2016 07:24 PM by OSU55 | 2 comments »

Blotching is uneven coloring on the substrate, and wood is the substrate I am discussing here. There are many ways to change the look of wood – dyes, dye stain, pigment stain, and variations of both (paint, glazes, and pigment only stains primarily sit on top of the wood and obscure it some or completely, and are not relevant to this discussion). I will simply refer to using all of these as coloring the wood, since the best method to control all of them is the same. I will discuss readi...

Minwax wood filler disaster

03-14-2016 12:38 AM by Sprouter | 8 comments »

So I’m new to lumberjocks and wood working and already enjoy the hell out of it. My first project was a toy box for my daughter and at the same time a boat bookshelf for my son, which turned out really good. I have an incra router table but only used a biscuit jointer for the joinery, although I made some nice trim for both projects using the incra. My problem is the minwax wood filler. I used it for nail holes and other defects. I figured I would get minwax stain and wood filler just t...

Oak Storage Bench #4: The Panels

02-16-2016 05:03 AM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

Hey! I figured out how to embed videos. Yay! Next step is to create the panels that will fit in the tongue and groove joinery of the frame. I chose 1/2” red oak plywood. That way I would have a 1/4” reveal on the outside and the panels would be flush with the frame on the inside.Some of the techniques I practiced in this session are the following:Cross-cutting veneer plywood with minimal tear-outSetting up a dado blade for cutting rabbetsPreparation of panel stock for stainin...

Banquette build....my first furniture attempt #3: My third child is stained and ready for protection

12-01-2015 05:57 AM by Woodchuck4 | 0 comments »

I call this my third child because as I’m nearing the finish line with this we have had two children, my wife quit her job to stay home with the kids, and I’ve gone through a job change (with promotion). With all that has gone on this poor project has had more off time than on, but now I am so close to the finish line I can taste it. Since the last post I got all of the final little cuts and finishes buttoned up. I was still struggling with the stain but finally found...

dark reddish finish for WO #1: first samples

06-14-2015 02:01 AM by harum | 0 comments »

The goal is to get a finish similar to this from groovyman6. Sample boads are rift sawn white oak, first dyed with Transtint Brown Mahogany, either at 1 to 32 dilution (two thinner bands) or at 1 to 15 (three thicker bands): (photo taken in the shade) After the dye dried, I lightly sanded the darker bands with either grit 600 (the top one) or 220 (the bottom one), then applied Minwax Tung Oil Finish per instructions and then, next day, one board was stained with Minwax Mahogany Gel S...

Side projects and stuff

04-08-2015 06:47 PM by asiago | 1 comment »

I’m still waiting for my mini kanna to arrive, and I’m kind of in-between big projects. I’ve really got nothing noteworthy going on. It’s been a slow period for my woodworking, consisting of nothing more than a sharpening day last week. My wife kept dropping a deck of tarot cards and the box is now mashed up pretty good, so I decided to do a quick little project and build a card box. I didn’t feel like doing any “high woodcraft”, so I grabbed so...
