Refinishing update

1723 days ago by kosta | 10 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I have been really board this week and decided to do a test does dust collection really help improve sandpaper life. It actually does because I am working on a fish tank stand right now and I have to do a lot of sanding. Now I dont really care if I have to sand something for 30 minutes but it doesnt matter how long it takes.

Tape Measure tip

1724 days ago by John Gray | 19 comments »

I was constantly having a problem locating my chrome Stanley tape measure, never could seem to spot it when I needed it. So I scuffed up the chrome parts with sandpaper, wiped the tape measure down with Prep-Sol (paint thinner will work too), masked off the parts I didn’t want painted, and gave it a couple coats of bright yellow paint. Now it stands out from the pack and I seem to never have trouble finding it.

I'm gonna be a Star!! #3: Chip carving #1

1731 days ago by kolwdwrkr | 11 comments »

So the chip carving has begun. I thought I would share a little bit of how to with you. I don’t have my entire pattern figured out, but I did choose this pattern for each of the points. So lets get started. You can purchase chip carving knives if you feel it is necessary, but I just use an old timer I’ve had since High School. It has 2 blades.

"Art Box" Tutorial #10: Pin Hinges

1731 days ago by Andy | 17 comments »

Updated 1/16/12 I spent a lot of time developing a way to let the lid swing down into the box, yet still maintaining a fairly tight reveal on all four sidesThe difficulty is the lip itself. It doesnt allow the back of the lid to drop into the box, so thats where we need to cut it away a little deeper at the back. I call these pockets.The other difficulty is in getting the hinge placement spot on or it wont open at all or not far enough to stay open. Here is how its done: Use the same pa...

I wasn’t supposed to work on this today because I’m supposed to work on a fence for the property I’m renting. I have a huge pile of fence material that the landlord and I just picked up yesterday. But I started this project this morning, blogged it around lunch time thinking I was done for the day, and then ended up back out there. This project has actually been kinda fun. It’s been fast, but fun. Total to this point is around 5 hours. The only thing left is the ...
