Structural Crack Filling

08-24-2009 11:35 PM by Ancientwood | 4 comments »

Ancientwood has developed a technique for filling large, structural cracks, sometimes found in Ancient Kauri slabs. This is a step-by-step approach for creating a flat surface with beautiful patterns and design. 1. The slab must first be flattened. This can be done with a drum sander, planer or a CNC router.2. After the slab is flat, locate cracks that need filling.3. Fill any hairline cracks with color-matched latex putty. Wet the adjacent area of the Ancient Kauri with spirits to get an a...

CHECK OUT THIS FIXTURE FOR ANGLES

02-29-2012 01:55 PM by Metrotek | 4 comments »

I came across this cool angle fixture as they are characterizing it but it has far more potential than just this; I see it as an angle tool for all sorts of applications. At the very least I hope it is inspiring to others.http://airfieldmodels.com/information_source/how_to_articles_for_model_builders/tools/magnetic_building_board/variable_angle_fixtures.htm

$2 Shop Improvement

10-04-2013 06:35 PM by Chris Moellering | 4 comments »

So I’m at the grocery store this week and I walk past the light bulbs. I stop and look… I come home with 2 200 watt bulbs and replace the 2 75 wat bulbs in my garage/workshop. Wow. I feel like I’m on stage now. Can see everything nice and clear. Even if it’s warm enough to have the overhead door open, I feel well let in contrast to outside. Wish I had done this months ago!

No Chamfer Plane? No Problem.

11-12-2012 02:33 AM by nobuckle | 4 comments »

I had to chamfer some small frame pieces but didn’t want to simply hold the pieces in my hand and run a block plane over them. Since I don’t have a chamfering plane I had to improvise. Thanks for your time.

Day one

03-01-2012 02:11 AM by T. D. Reid | 4 comments »

I had to get on here tonight and post a picture of the legs for my eight year olds new bed. I am using a design from Wood Magazine that I have made one change too and that was the legs. If you have seen the plans for this bed they give you an option of bunking the bed and due to the ceiling height in his room I will pass on that. They cut out where the mortises are located for the rails and then laminated three boards together to get the finished 2 1/4 inch thickness. So my change is the use ...

Finishing Process of Interest #1: Chemical Ebonizing

01-07-2015 01:36 PM by pjones46 | 4 comments »

A while back, I put together a set of links of random finishing topics which I posted in my blog, called Finishing Tips #5: Finishing tips #5. One of the links listed coved the topic of Chemical-Ebonizing as I saw an interest from some concerning the procedure, so this is the time to single out that process. This process does not use dye, ink or paint, and can be carried out quite easily. As a matter of formality follow proper safety precautions such as wearing safety glasses, hand prot...

Upholstering 2 Chairs For My Living Room #4: Cutting the body

01-26-2014 01:27 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 4 comments »

We have all of the body measurements. It’s a good time to pull out the scissors. Here is what you may need. Cutting list, Chalk, pen, Yardstick of straight edge, measuring tape and in most cases a carpenter square. I bought a carpenter square at a sewing supply company for $20 once. I bought the one you see for $9.00. It is far better than the one I bought at the sewing supply store. Live and learn. Here we go – let’s hurry up and pause. Before marking my cut...
