How to make a Calculator in excel to generate the constraints in eCabinets for fluted moldings

09-28-2014 12:22 PM by ScottM1 | 2 comments »

Hello every one. If you viewed all three of the videos that I posted yesterday then you saw me use the calculator that I made in excel to come up with the constraints for the flutes in part 3. Today I would like to share the video that shows how I made this calculator. Check it out and let me know what you think.http://youtu.be/DqeCcdPCfKM

Fuming a Small Box With Household Ammonia #5: Penetration of the Fume Darkening Into the Wood

09-28-2014 01:57 AM by Roger Kimmel | 1 comment »

Since the ammonia fume diffused through the finishes so easily, I started to wonder how far it penetrated the wood. I had assumed the fume darkening would be a thing film, so I planed one of the edges to see how far it would go. I planed and planed, and found out that the fume had penetrated 1-2 mm through the face grain, and up to 10 mm on the end grain. You can see this in the planed edge shown above. The fumed finish on oak can easily stand up to extensive sanding. As always, please t...

Fuming a Small Box With Household Ammonia #4: Fuming Through the Finish

09-28-2014 12:50 AM by Roger Kimmel | 0 comments »

After noticing that the inside of my box picked up some color right through the Danish oil finish, I decided to experiment. I finished an oak stick with one coat of polyurethane varnish (right) and Danish oil (left). I left the center unfinished. The oak darkened nicely beneath the finishes. The Danish oil appears a bit darker than the varnish, but the image exaggerates this somewhat. Nice to know that you can sand and put at least one coat of finish on before fuming. I’d test it ...

Finishing my bottom

09-28-2014 12:19 AM by BenhamDesign | 1 comment »

Many times as furniture makers, we will put a finish on the underside of a tabletop to prevent it from warping or cupping. The theory being, if you put the same finish on the top as you do the bottom the moisture transfer will be equalized on all sides, helping to prevent wood movement. Regardless whether or not this theory is true, there are other reasons to finish the bottom of your tabletop.Continue reading on my blog to see the real reason why I finish the bottom of my tables.

Awesome trick for drawing fluted moldings in eCabinets.

09-27-2014 08:13 AM by ScottM1 | 0 comments »

Hello every one. Today I have 3 videos that I would like to share with you. They demonstrate how to create fluted moldings in eCabinets that will dynamically adjust their size when you change the cabinet. If you have ever used fluted moldings on your cabinets then you probably created a display board or display panel or even a display cube. Then applied them to the cabinet. This method although a bit more involved will make this a lot easier in the long run. So be sure to watch all 3 and let...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #4: Thunked-up Skilsaw 3410-02 Fence Fix

09-23-2014 01:12 PM by technoslick | 8 comments »

About a year ago, when I finally decided a hammer and chisel wasn’t enough to remodel the house, I drove on down to our local Lowe’s and plopped down my hard-earned (credit card) money on the counter for a Skilsaw model 3410-02 Contractor Table Saw. I forget the amount of damage done at the time—it can be considered a foregone conclusion that this was the beginning of a huge tab to come—but while it was a lot of bananas for me for the cheapest of the table saws offered...

Fuming a Small Box With Household Ammonia #2: After Six Days of Exposure

09-20-2014 02:02 AM by Roger Kimmel | 6 comments »

This is the box after two more days exposure, for six days total. It isn’t much darker than it was after four days, so I’m going to call the experiment over. I’d like for it to be a bit darker, but at least I got the contrast I wanted with the basswood lid and pins. Even the basswood took on a bit warmer shade. This is why I put the lid in to fume with the sides. I thought that the pins might darken, and I wanted them to match the lid. Here is the box before fuming:One...

Fuming a Small Box With Household Ammonia #1: After Four Days of Exposure

09-18-2014 12:49 AM by Roger Kimmel | 8 comments »

The box hasn’t darkened appreciably over the past two days, so I put in fresh ammonia in a slightly bigger saucer to give it more surface area. Here’s a funny thing. It felt like the box was damp to the touch. The lid just lies in a rabbet in the sides, and the wood had swollen so much that it was jammed in tight! It really has been picking up moisture. I don’t know if this is due to the fuming reaction, or if it is just a consequence of having the box suspended ove...
