Fixing a knot hole that got sucked up in the planer with a christmas tree

12-06-2017 05:50 PM by BenhamDesign | 2 comments »

Watch it on YouTube or read about it below I am working on another barn door for a client, and this door has created a few challenges for me. The client really loves the look of the gray weathered wood and wanted it on both sides of the door. The only problem is that most barn wood is only gray on one side. The other side that faces the inside of the barn is brown because it never sees the weather.So I decided to create barn wood veneer so I could veneer both sides of the door using th...

Shop stuff #110: Bosch 1250 DEVS sander: Real time test

I removed part of the tenoning jig so that it would clear the blade. I attached a piece of plywood with double sided tape to extend the reach of the jig. Then I attached the ring with double sided tape and made the cut. The tenoning jig has an adjusting knob that allows you to make fine adjustments. You can cut very thin...

This week in the shop: Project Paralysis

11-17-2017 03:49 AM by Woodbutchery | 1 comment »

So I’m working on Christmas presents and making progress on that, and I’ve finished several small projects that keep the wife happy and make living just a tiny bit easier. With all that productivity and project finishing, where does the paralysis come in? Four years ago, almost to the day, I received several board feet of what I thought was mahogany but might actually be sapele. It was my first (and so far only) wood gloat . It didn’t take me long to figure out what I ...
