So, between TreeFrogFurniture.BlogSpot.com and Robert Lang’s book “More Shop Drawings for Craftsman Furniture”, I decided that the corner of our dining room could stand an accent table. TreeFrog has built two different styles, so I “borrowed” the plans for the one I liked (he posted them online) and made my first template. I’m going to wait to make the interior template until I have the shell complete. The angles make things a bit messy. Like Tre...
This is a versatile little cabinet in which you can store whatever your heart desires in it. The overall dimensions for this project is 21”w x 11 ¼”d x 13 ¼” h. Of course if you need something bigger than make it bigger, or to fit your needs. I am using Baltic Birch for mine but use whatever material you feel like using. As always if you have any questions email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.—http://blip.tv/file/4726686
<div> Click to play </div> Hello everyone, Been awhile. Here is a Small Audio Podcast about the Tater bin I’m going to be building for a Friend of mine. He is wanting a Tater bin Made from Pine and Stained with Cherry. He’s buying the Materials and hardware required ...
For our best pieces, we use sawn veneer. It is usually 10 time as expensive as sliced, but it is a better quality product. When the veneer is sliced, it is often steamed or heated and the shearing of the knife damage the structure of the wood. When the veneer is sawn, it is just like solid wood, just thinner. Patrick Edwards did a good blog entry on sawn veneer with a video of one of the last veneer sawing comapny, near Paris, Georges et Fils. To read the article it is here. An...
So here it is: the first attempt at determining the temperature at which the pigment produced by Chlorociboria vanishes. This is preliminary data (you never stress it enough!), furthermore testing will be needed to assess the exact way it happens within a seriously controlled setup. The pigment is stable up to 90°C, then it quickly starts to degrade. At around 110°C, half the pigment has lost its color. At 125°C, only 25% of the coloring remains. At 155°C, only 10% of the green is s...
I just start a new project for my kids. As i have learned from my forefather, everytime i want to stain soft wood such as Birch, Maple… i have conditioning the wood first, then stain it. Last time i went to local store, they ran out of wood conditioner, the owner recommend me to use stain from JAR. He said that with JAR, there is no need to conditioner the wood, look like it is al-in-one sort of thing. Have anyone tryied this? please advise. Thank you very much. Always value your e...
2 days left and I got a finish coat of stain on tonight, after my wife got home from work and helped me get a burl. The city dumps trees and compost and dirt about a quarter mile behind my house and my cousin is on the DPW. So I have free access to all the fallen trees in the city. The other day I was back there with the quad checking out my lumber and noticed a big old maple burl I could’nt pass up. So I started working on it with my chain saw. I never finished it through the holidays ...
Well, here it goes…the long story. On my last tour to Iraq I was stationed at Balad AB, the largest FOB (Forward Operating Base) in the AOR (Area of Responsibility). I was in charge of a 110 person security team known as the FPs (Force Protection). To make a long military story short (since this is a woodworking site, not a military site), my team was responsible for the security of the entire base both inside and outside the wire, and a lot of stuff happened that made us a very tigh...
Thank goodness it has cooled off a bit! It was so nice to actually get a good night sleep . The past several days were so warm and muggy it seemed that I was up half the night and then woke up tired and felt like I didn’t get much rest. I shouldn’t complain because I know that many people have it much worse, but I will say that I was very pleased when the sun set last night and the air cooled down considerably. It was a very welcome change and made for a comfortable and restfu...
