Woodworking Knowledge #3: Etching Brasswork from Using Photocopies of Anything!

04-25-2008 03:14 PM by flink | 2 comments »

Hi There! I for one, really like the way brass looks with a rich background of mahogany or dark oak. I also love engraved brasswork. This morning as I drank my morning six-pack of diet coke, I was checking my regulars and came across a link to a person who does steampunk stuff and had a procedure to do brass etchings of anything you can photocopy. It’s relatively simple, and can be done with materials you can get at the borgs. Below is the photocopy “negative” (le...

17th Century Jacobean Oak paneled room #4: What to keep and what to replace.

03-07-2008 03:59 AM by woodwkr | 4 comments »

First, let me say that this project was not an historical renovation. I tried to approach it that way as much as I could, but we did not have an unlimited budget and the client wanted the job done as soon as possible. Ok. I will start at the top and work my way down.Below is one of the few pieces of the original crown that survived. I believe that the original ceiling must have leaked, or been damp, because the crown and coffered panels needed allot of work. We did not have the time t...

Woodworking for a Job ?

06-28-2010 08:52 PM by cdbridge39 | 17 comments »

I have been thinking about going into woodworking full time. I like to work with wood all the time, what does that say about me ? Does anyone do woodworking full time ? I just don’t know what would be a good product to make and sell. Does anyone have any ideas ? Some pointers and tips would be good. I like making lathe stuff but I don’t think there is much money in it. Maybe some furniture or boxes ?

Poplar Kitchen #1: During the build

03-01-2008 04:14 AM by Les Hastings | 5 comments »

We built this project the first part of 2007. The house was built in the late 1800’s and is on the National Historical Registry. Its was kitchen, pantry, butlery and small office combined. The case’s were out of UV Maple with poplar frames and doors. All the drawers are dovetailed hard maple finished clear with Blum under mount slides. The crown was in three pieces, the reeded lower portion had X’s that were routed in with a jig. Pieces were then glued in and then carved...

Finishing Tips #5: Finishing tips #5

03-27-2013 07:03 PM by pjones46 | 7 comments »

One of the parts of woodworking that many would like to do better is finishing, and that includes me. On my quest to obtain the background I have bought books, talked with professionals in the field, and searched high and low on the internet to find the answers to my questions. Some of the questions arose as I was completing a project but others were generated by what I had read. As I have gotten older I say to myself, “I know I have read something about this particular procedure”, but I...

Dowel joinery

02-25-2010 11:22 PM by NewPilgrim | 5 comments »

My neighbor and new buddy Paul has been teaching me how to do dowel joints, pretty fun. I am new to wood working so I am very appreciative when someone can demonstrate their skills for me. I am currently building a wooden, Victorian-style, (vintage) baby gate for our stairs. I am trying to match my current stair rail and baluster look-and-feel. I bought some Hemlock balusters, shoe rail/fillets and a nice hand rail. I’ve conditioned, and stained it to match, and so far it looks good....

Starting a new project

12-01-2009 05:39 AM by Martina | 5 comments »

Hey guys, so I have been away for awhile, but I am all settled into my new place, cut off 14 inches of hair, sold a car, bought a motorcycle, got promoted on my job and ready to start woodworking again in my new garage. I am about to start on a “settee” I called it a couch, but I was corrected… LOL not much on fancy names… Any tips to look out for? This is going to be something that is used regularly…. so delicate is not good – any support bracing ideas?...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #795: Moving Forward - The Next Phase

08-20-2012 10:55 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

It’s another early morning today. I suppose I am excited about all that is ahead of me today. It is a new day and a new week is beginning and I can’t wait to see what is in store. There are good things happening all around and allowing them to unfold before me fills me with anticipation. I am not as anxious as I have been in the past. After years of doubt and being unsure of so many things, I think that we have built a sturdy foundation for the business that is diverse enough...
