Hand Tools Cabinet #1: It all begins with a box

02-06-2009 11:12 PM by PurpLev | 7 comments »

I saw this design in a finewoodworking article, and really liked the design, and functionality of the piece, and decided to follow along. I did not use FWW plans, but created my own to fit my space, and needs, while keeping the general design, and concept of the FWW piece in mind. (I made mine, smaller, and shallower then FWW cabinet, also the interior is much different). This is basically a fingerjointed box that the doors are cut off from (to match grain) and hinged on a piano hinge. pre...

A small conference table - the build #7: Apply varnish to the top, and more on the legs and aprons

02-06-2009 03:10 PM by Al Navas | 4 comments »

From my blog: Where I was a while ago: Application of the Zinsser SealCoat™ (an alcohol-based, wax-free sanding sealer) went well. The secret: Apply very thin coats with a lint-free rag, wiping as you go. Wait a minimum of 2 hours, then sand with 400 grit sandpaper, until smooth to the touch – but don’t sand all the way to the wood. Repeat once. Today: 1) Time to apply the first coat of Target Coatings’ EM2000wvx waterborne alkyd varnish: Also today: 2) I fine-tuned the mor...

A small conference table - the build #6: Start applying the finish to the top, and set up legs and aprons

02-04-2009 03:56 PM by Al Navas | 2 comments »

I continue work. For the upcoming several days I will continue applying the finish to the top; today I started applying the Zinsser Seal Coat (shellac) to the underside. And work started on setting up for cutting tenons on the aprons, and mortises on the legs. From my blog: Sometimes, decisions are tough. For example, to start the work day today, I debated whether to start applying the Zinsser Seal Coat to the table top as it lay on the workbench, or take into the finishing room. The...

A small conference table - the build #3: The top is ready for sanding

01-29-2009 02:41 PM by Al Navas | 2 comments »

From my blog: Whew! Today was time to glue up the two halves of the table top. I trimmed each of the two halves on the table saw, using the crosscut sled. Leaving each half slightly over final length, I tackled the glue-up. Sandy came to the shop to lend a hand, as I did not want clamps moving and lumber falling to the floor. Three hours late I removed the clamps, scraped the dry glue, and completed preparations for sanding tomorrow. I will drop off this panel at my friend’s shop...

Sewing Center #3

01-26-2009 06:37 AM by robbi | 3 comments »

I feel like I hardly got anything done this weekend….going quite slow I am afraid. I have had some issues with my table saw so 1/2 of my time was spent trying to fix that. Sometimes I wish I had big buff muscles so I could wrestle with my tools better. Seems I spend a lot of time swearing and yelling at my tools. Anyway….on with the show here. I had to make the drawer slides which entailed cutting them from 3/4 oak and planing them down to 1/4. I have a band saw but it is ...

Sewing Center #2

01-19-2009 04:18 AM by robbi | 3 comments »

Well, I bought all the wood for this project a couple weeks ago and I always have a hard time cutting large pieces straight because my table saw didn’t have a very long fence. I bought a large one about two years ago, was kind of intimidated to try putting it on, but I finally did. I had to put a new arbor on my table saw too, the pulley that holds the belt kept working it’s way off, so when I ordered that part, since I couldn’t use the saw, it was a good time to put the n...

Sewing Center #1

01-18-2009 08:35 PM by robbi | 7 comments »

I have decided to build myself a sewing table, I have made myself a few things, but mostly I make things for my kids or grandkids. I love to sew, I have been doing it a lot longer than woodworking, so I am better at it. It is interesting how the two things are similar in a lot of ways…anyway. I am a novice at woodworking, most everything I know is from trial and error. I’m sure the technique I use for most things in wrong, but I somehow get it done anyway. So, I thought I wou...

Sapele side table progress

12-21-2008 02:12 AM by Greg3G | 15 comments »

Ok…I was thinking of doing some stringing or inlays on this but after talking with my wife about where we wanted to put this, I let that idea go. I wanted to keep it a bit less formal. This series of photos are after the glue up and with one coat of Karson’s Oil/Poly blend recipe. It is still just a bit on the damp side. The top is not attached at this point. I will probably give it one more coat of the oil/poly blend then give it 3 or 4 coats of shellac and rub it out. I want ...

Side Table Project... a good day in the shop

12-15-2008 03:39 AM by Greg3G | 9 comments »

After a really long week at work as well as catching a cold. I finally found the energy to get into the shop today. On my last trip to Karson’s, he had given me bundle of Sapele, a type of African Mahogany (not sure if that is spelled right.) I though I had enough to build a Pembrook style table but there wasn’t enough of matching wood for the top. So after arranging the boards on my table and a little head scratching I came up with this design. The legs are tapered on all four si...

Resume,If you have hired someone before please read

12-11-2008 06:41 PM by Joshua Howe | 22 comments »

Okay this maybe odd but, I have tried to get into a few different shops. I worked in one for a little while and I loved it but, I was working on commission and was having problems getting payed by the owner. My question is about my resume. I have always been very creative and know that I can do what ever a job would require. I also know the economy is in a hole right now. But I am going to post my resume and I would love some feed back. Please be very critical. I am an artist and have ...
