Oregon Woodturners Symposium

03-10-2015 05:55 PM by OregonBurls | 4 comments »

It has been a while sense I have posted any thing. I hope not to be a stranger. Life is crazy with all the travel and all the other stuff that I do. It seems like I only have time for family and business. Just got back from the symposium. It was their first and it went great! Met lots of new people. I think my favorite moments are when I get to meet people who have been my clients for years and I get to meet them in person for the first time. and of course seeing old friends that I only ge...

Finishing Info for the Woodworker #1: What are the differences between stains and dyes

01-09-2015 09:41 PM by pjones46 | 2 comments »

What are the differences between stains and dyes? Very simply put: With stains, the pigment tends to remain on the surface of the wood and lodge in the pores, while dyes penetrate deeply and color the wood from within. Dyes Dyes are colorants that are usually mixed in a carrier vehicle (solvents) such as mineral spirits, water or alcohol. The dyes used in woodworking are characterized as transparent, as they bring about color changes in wood without obscuring the figure. The molecul...

Curved front hall table #2: Curved front hall table #2

01-08-2015 09:33 PM by exelectrician | 6 comments »

To make the top six ribbon sapele offcuts from my wood supply shop were edge glued, planed, and joined. Then I used the template with a 3” diameter ring centered and carpet taped to my router base to trim the jigsawed oval shape to the final dimension. First I routed a classic ogee on the top edge and put a 3/8” round over on the back, my wife preferred the ogee to be on the down side, so the rounded side became the top!I put Daleys ‘Benite’ to seal all the surfaces an...

Curved front hall table #1: The tapered legs

12-20-2014 04:07 AM by exelectrician | 11 comments »

After completing my hanging tool cabinet build I decided to push myself to attempt some sort of inlay work coupled with curved wood. This table in No 77 of Woodsmith Magazine caught my eye and I decided to have a go at it. Here are the results so far. In this posed photo I have the sled I made for this project, with the tapered on four sides leg. the rabbets cut on the top and bottom take the contrasting dark wood (sapele) 1/8” inlays. Then 1/4” rabbets are cut on all four cor...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1459: Little Touches

12-09-2014 01:30 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I wasn't even going to blog today but I was up early working on some things and I was so amazed at the difference adding just a "little bit" extra to my ornaments made. I have some ornaments and gifts that I am in the process of finishing up for my own gift giving and in looking at my SLD486 Merry Christmas Letter Blocks, I liked them, but they needed that little 'extra.'They were pretty made with nicely grained maple, finished with clear shellac: But after all, this ...

The Simpler Life

07-11-2014 05:38 PM by TDog | 0 comments »

Well, As I work towards finishing a run of Adirondack chairs I’ve chosen to put the power tools aside for a while except for needed home repairs. It’s time to simplify. Time to quiet down my woodworking. I want to focus on building larger pieces 99% to 100 by hand. I’m still debating on the table saw issue. Time for creative challenges instead of obsessive production, stress, and the shrills of power tools all day. My new goals are larger historic furniture piece...
