Since a lot of us produce “longer”, or taller, items that we want to post on LJ’s, we typically end up having to take the photo from a distance so that the entire object can be included. The resulting photo ends up not showing the finer details of your work.This type of scenario applies to some of my own pieces, such as carved walking staffs, or canes, but there is a free tool to help us get around this problem, and I expect that it is already installed on your PC with eithe...
Hello all, just put up a new video. In this video we stabilize wood with a vacuum chamber and an acrylic resin. The process is very cool and will leave your wood rock hard and moisture resistant. Here is a link to the video. After you watch we would love for you to subscribe to our channel. We have a lot of interesting videos planned. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQxtHxfqbeQ

I started building a wooden combine. Below a set of pictures of the building proces of the chassis. I made this chassis out of 6 pieces. On the construction drawing it is one piece. I like to use more pieces. I have no pretensions to say that this is the right way, It is only my way. It is quite possible making the chassis out of one piece. Thanks for watching
The wood siding clapboards on your house will expand during hot weather and shrink during cold weather.

You’ll need a pry bar, a hammer, a utility knife, a hand saw, some caulk, a box of siding nails, and your re...
Okay, I was asked to post a how to for the, I guess I’ll start calling it “vanishing” hinge, since it’s not completely invisible. Anyway I struggled with posting this tutorial, because in this instance things went badly, but I think it’s just as important to publish the mistakes as the successes, because that way whoever reads this can see where the pitfalls are. So in the spirit of full disclosure, here goes. Okay, this tutorial is for 1/2” wood and dow...

This chest is my father’s and he asked if I would restore it for him and fix most of the damage. I first started by researching the chest. I knew by stripping the chest I would most likely loose the images either with a chemical stripper to replace/repair the finish or by sanding.

Turns out Cass Toy Company is no longer in business and was destroyed in a fire i...
