Big Booboo

I have a question about what to do when my project is all primed, painted, and clear coated. The clear coat was just finished, still wet, then accidentally fell! Two areas rubbed off down to the primer. The issue is the areas are spray painted using stencils . Parts of stenciled areas are down to primer, other parts are not. My question is , should I lightly sand those areas and try stenciling just the part messed up or do I stencil the whole stenciling area? This look is with 4 colors , cal...

I am delighted i went into McQuillans in Dublin yesterday and got my first piece of exotic hardwood, i got some zebrano (zebra wood) they were selling loads of pieces of exotic harwood in blanks and in little bocks, its around 2 foot long and around 2 inches square. It was the first proper tradesmen shop i had been in, so it was the first shop i had seen with table saws, power planers, bandsaws etc. it was amazing.

10 Steps to Getting Started in Traditional Woodworking with Hand Tools #4: |Step 3| Learn how to Refurbish, Tune, & Sharpen Tools

04-15-2014 03:18 PM by WoodAndShop | 2 comments »

My wife loves to say, “hun, I think you love restoring hand tools almost as much as woodworking!” I think she’s right. There’s something magical about taking an antique (and very well built) woodworking hand tool and bringing it back to working order. Removing the rust, tuning up the parts, and sharpening the blade gives a feeling of satisfaction; especially when seeing the finished result. I get a feeling of a connection with the past, with my ancestors, with a time when things were made ...

Craftsman 113.27610 Restoration #2: Finishing up assembly for the most part. And breaking things!

05-06-2013 12:14 AM by JawShoeAh | 2 comments »

Day number two feels good. You made so much progress last night, and it’s almost done. So you jump right in, and decided to put your trunions on and figure this thing out. 3 long screws hold them on. ...well, easier to put them on first, then flip the whole show onto the table top I think. Bam. You got this. ...That’s supposed to be behind that. (swear a lot) Rent a bearing puller. Hooray. Just like day number two feels so good, so does doing things twice. Ho...

10 Steps to Getting Started in Traditional Woodworking with Hand Tools #11: |Step 10| Learn how to Finish the Wood

04-15-2014 05:01 PM by WoodAndShop | 2 comments »

Step 10 is one of my favorite steps, because you get to see the true beauty reveal itself in the wood, and the grain patterns shine forth! I’ll admit it, I’m not one of those woodworkers who love complex finish recipes, but I love making it as simple as possible. In the above video I introduced quite a few of the well-known finishes used by woodworkers (there’s probably a lot more) but I encourage everyone to experiment and find out which finishes they like the best. My favorite, easies...

The Harbor Freight Experiment Series #1: Setting ground rules to contain my impulsiveness and inner cheapskate

12-15-2013 07:37 PM by paxorion | 2 comments »

As I was cleaning and (re)organizing my cramped basement tool storage, I realized that I’ve acquired over the years a large number of Harbor Freight tools and disposable items. Most of my early purchases were made as impulse buys (after all it’s only a few bucks!) or because my inner cheapskate convinced me (against reason) that I didn’t need to spend any extra money for a brand name. Seeing the stockpile made me realize that I have certainly wised up in ways of figuring o...
