Walnut Dining Room and Foyer #2: Foyer Table - bottom completed and top glued up

21 hours ago by elbarneso | 1 comment »

Just a few pics and progress from this past week – I sprayed a few coats of GF pre-cat satin urethane on the base of the foyer table and glued that up. The finish turned out pretty good, although I had to resand the bottom shelf due to some bad sanding marks that I rushed and didn’t see the first time. I don’t have very good lighting in my garage, but I bought a cheap clip lamp and used it during the re-sand – I really should have bought one of these sooner, although t...

Walnut Dining Room and Foyer #1: Project Description / First Status

8 days ago by elbarneso | 2 comments »

I plan to use this blog to track my progress on a number of furniture pieces going in our dining/foyer area for our home that we purchased about 1 year ago. Our old home did not have a separate dining room, so we had no furniture to go in this room. I decided to build my own pieces to fill this space, as I have been doing a lot of woodworking over the past year and feel that confident (enough) that I have the skills, time, and vision to complete this. Here is a list of the pieces in the set a...

Wooden Spoon Material Experiment

9 days ago by bobkberg | 5 comments »

My wife loves her wooden spoons, but after many years, they warp and crack and eventually fall apart. So I started wondering what the best material to make a wooden spoon out of might be. I bought 10 small samples of hardwoods and cut them all to roughly the size that could serve as the bowl of a wooden spoon. So I have 10 pieces of wood roughly 5” long, 2 1/2” wide and 7/16” thick. I started with those and put them into a large stock pot with 4 gallons of water a...

Tool Box #2: case work

9 days ago by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ok, spent a bit of time getting the case put together. Things just seem to roost on my benchtop. Setting the panels upside down on an almost flat benchtop. Clamp an end panel to the front/back panel. The longer panels have a series of counter-bored screw holes, about seven per corner. Clamp a corner together, add a few screws, move the clamp a bit to uncover the one or two that are hiding under them. Work my way around, by adding the other end panel, rotate the three piece set aro...

Shop Notes #13: Spaulting of Walnut?

11 days ago by DocSavage45 | 6 comments »

Don’t know if this should be a forum topic or a blog. But here it goes. Although I shouldn’t have. I purchased a chain saw and a mill. Have yet to use it. Planning on harvesting wood from our compost site in town. I have two lofty Walnut trees. It sloughs off non functional life generating branches. My neighbor wanted to cut a lower horizontal limb not yet dropped by the tree. I had been planning to do this in practice. But he wanted to get his new recreational mobile ...

Holly's Jasper #32: Holly's Jasper #32

12 days ago by Michael Anthony Zelonis | 1 comment »

Base is shaped and ready for finishing, doesn’t seem like my wood guy has been able to find a stabilizing chamber big enough to do this, so it will likely be done with grain filler. Last part of the project will be an epilepsy awareness bow affixed to the front of the base, dyed purple.
