Watch Box #8: Finished

02-03-2012 04:43 PM by Andy | 40 comments »

Finally I got it done and shipped it off to the customer. He wont get it in his hands until next week, so I will post his impressions when I hear back. I hope its what he wants!!! TIP:Some of you may know about this but many will not. This is my secret to quickly fine sand the box prior to spraying lacquer. I hand sanded down to 220 and then I finish up with green nylon pads. These were bought at the local dollar store. Guess how much? Thats right, a whole dollar. You can buy similar pads ...

Uncharted Territory... My First Inlay & How I Did It

12-03-2010 03:47 PM by Maveric777 | 39 comments »

Well, I been hanging around here at Lumber Jocks for going on a year now. I have learned so much from so many, and can honestly say I owe a lot of what I know today to the sharing of knowledge here. So after attempting my latest “Exploration” into the wild world of woodworking I figured this would be a good a time as any for me to pass along a little blog on how I did my “Dreaded Inlays” ..... Long story short, I was hit up by a coworker asking me if I could build h...

Ebonizing; Steel Wool and Vinegar

09-05-2008 02:04 AM by Allison | 38 comments »

A few months ago I had read an article about ebonizing wood with steel wool and vinegar. Awhile back I tried this and absolutely nothing happened. I never even tried again. Ebonizing is a stain of sorts I guess. I also have heard there are several ways of doing this. The reason the original article caught my eye was because I sure as hell don’t have the money to buy Ebony (wood), and I am forever wanting or needing dark/black wood for my projects and I do not like to use paint, to the ...

Grab some popcorn… I made a movie!(Make sure the volume is up… it might be a little quiet) Story:I have been working really hard to tune up my bandsaw lately. I really wanted one of these:...for tensioning and detensioning the blade. But I am at the end of my budget and can’t spend another $150. I had seen pictures of a homemade version in a magazine and decided to make my own. I posted this to try to get ideas. Anyway, this is what I came up with and it works gre...

Shop Air Filtration #1: Media Filters

01-07-2009 06:41 PM by Bob42 | 37 comments »

I have been reading and commenting recently about shop air filtration and the concern for it. My decision to write this was to give the LJ’s community some facts about air filtration. Let me start with my knowledge base. I started my own air filtration business after my son was diagnosed with severe asthma at the age of 18 months. He is now 20 years old. My wife (an RN) and I immersed our selves into learning as mush as we could to make his breathing easier. We attended numerous seminar...
