07-28-2007 04:03 AM by Karson | 6 comments »

Yes, this is the “WOOD JOINERY” challenge for all you LumberJocks out there. Let’s see what you are made of – or rather what your woodworking project is made of. If you can build it wit...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1056: Another Site Update With Several New Patterns

06-11-2013 11:56 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

On my finishing blog I wrote about using Pumice and Rottenstone as a wood filler, I thought I’d try something different on this cabinet. I used my private blend Danish Oil (1/3 Boiled Linseed Oil BLO, 1/3 varnish, and 1/3 Mineral Spirits).
