Finish Identification - is it oil, shellac, lacquer, or poly/varnish?

12-16-2018 01:51 PM by WoodshopTherapy | 3 comments »

I recently repaired a piano bench that had a large flaw in the finish. I wanted to repair it instead of strip and refinish it, but I didn’t know what type of finish it was. I made a video about testing finishes to show how I test to identify the finish – https://youtu.be/iOZyJ9S3B7k I also made a video to show how to repaired the finish on the piano bench seat – https://youtu.be/BBq5kcEcaXo Here’s the before and after of the repair:

Building a Corner Cabinet From Magazine Plans

12-12-2018 01:15 AM by wrenchhead | 1 comment »

I built this corner cabinet out of curly maple. I built this project by following an article in the November 2010 issue (No. 186)of Popular Woodworking Magazine. I really love this design and this is the second one of these style cupboards i have built over the years. I mostly followed the plans in the article but I did make some changes, incorporating a beginner blacksmith project in to the cabinet. I forged these simple J hooks at the anvil for the piece and am I’m really happy with h...

How to build an oval cutting jig (elliptical router jig)

12-06-2018 07:46 PM by BenhamDesign | 4 comments »

That video should be out in a few hours, so please check back I started out the build by cutting the base to size. I’m making it out of ¾” plywood but ¼” would be b...

New Use for Old Water Skis

11-26-2018 12:04 AM by WoodshopTherapy | 1 comment »

I had a customer bring me 3 water skis and asked me to build a corner shelf for them. It sounded straight forward until I started thinking about how to make sure the skis were square and plumb when I built it. I ended up mocking up a wall in the workshop so I could get all the parts lined up and determine the dimensions of the shelf unit. I made a video of the project if you’re interested to see how I overcame the challenge and how it all came together. It was a fun project, inclu...

Making Tree into Rope

11-03-2018 02:02 PM by MaxAdvoko | 0 comments »

Hi folks! This video is about making a primitive rope from a young fir. Such rope was used by loggers and raftsmen in the past. Admittedly, the fir rope is less flexible than traditional rope and it will be harder to tie into a knot, but it only takes a few minutes to make such rope.Moreover, this DIY rope has a number of unexpected woodworking uses that I will tell you about in this three minute video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w3MpFoIX5uw.

Shop stuff #140: Fixing a snow blower.

11-03-2018 03:18 AM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

Not wood working, but they can make the path to the shop a bit easier. I went with a friend to pick up his Father In Laws snow blower that has been sitting for 2 years. Not using things sometimes leads to problems. So I took a day and fixed it up for him. A change of pace from the usual in my shop. View on YouTube
