Hey Everybody! In this episode of the Teenage Woodworker I talk about my favorite stain. It’s quick simple and looks great especially on hardwoods. for the stain all you need is, Gel Polyurethane, Wax, and a couple of clean cloths. Well I hope that everyone enjoys the show! I hope that everyone enjoyed the show and right now i am not really sure what i am going to do next week. So if anyone has anything that they want to see then just leave a comment and i will consider it f...
Hey LJ just posting a recent video I did on making a tiny bud vase I make from Australian Red wood. The shape is not perfect but it looks nice because of its size. Enjoy!
well i have alot of finishing stuff. i am also getting a lot into the spraying so the chance arose to get my own little finishing booth in the corner of my attic right near 2 windows so of course i jumped on the opertunity. just to give you a perspective. after i cleaned out my finishing cabinet here was my stuff. and my table saw is 4 foot 3 inches by 27 inches so this is where i will cover the construction of the table. its not fine woodworking but my woodworking passion really c...
I kind of stumbled on this method by accident.I haven’t tested it on hardwood but your big box soft wood lumber works perfectly.. Tools needed. Stanley No. 95 or equivalent (veritas or LN)Block plane or smoothing plane set for thin shavings. I usually take 8-12 passes with the 95 each direction,This is usually enough to get rid of that rounded edge you getWith big box store construction grade lumber. But wait! I just changed directions against the grain!Doesn’t matter...
Not sure if this belongs in a “Review” or “Blog” heading so I’ll place it here. Fatigue mats, you don’t think about them much unless you stand on a hard floor all day (and even then you probably think about them). I purchased a fatigue mat from our beloved Rockler a couple of years ago and loved it. It was sent to me rolled up and took about a year before it would lay flat. Still, working in front of my lath for hours at a time I found that it was a GRE...
Above: A while ago I built this stand for my drill press. It’s got a deep drawer and two shelves behind double doors. It got really tiring having to open the doors, bend over, and reach in to grab either my electric (corded drill,) or my handy hand drill. So today I put a thought into action. I looked up drill holders and found this really basic design to keep things at hand. Above: A simple chunk of 2×4 with two holes drilled into it and a little cutting and I got thi...
A quick video of me making an egg cup holder, enjoy!
I have some small boxes with oak sides that I made, and I wanted to fume them to contrast with the basswood lids and pins. I placed a box over a saucer with some regular household ammonia. I keep a cake container over the setup to contain the fumes.The box before fuming.Here is the setup and the box after one day. Here it is after 48 hours. I’ll keep going until it reaches the desired shade.
I built this miter jig and posted it a month or so ago. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/73645. It works better than I had hoped, but thats not all it does. I needed to cut some dowels all the same length and this little jig came to the rescue. I just set the stop and used the end of the jig as a stop for the saw. Sixteen dowels all the same length. Then I needed to drill some holes in some larger dowels. I brought the forstner bit down and centered in in the jig. Dropped in the 1 1/4” d...
well I’m sure that many off you have had problems with your table saw fence before. and i have been having a lot of problems with mine so i decided to head to Lowes and purchase a delta T-2 table saw fence. i had to go to 3 of them before i actually found it. and it is a big box. it is a pretty beefy fence. so first i started by removing my old table saw fence and my router table. just to make the installation a bit easier. then i attached the rails to the table saw. lucki...
