3 Girls & A Woodworker #5: Questions about Walnut and Scrollsawing

04-19-2011 03:14 PM by John_G | 15 comments »

I’m about to begin a scrollsaw project with a piece of 3/4” Walnut. My question is when i was sanding down the walnut ahead of time i noticed that it has “pores” or “open grain” or something in it. Is this normal for walnut, or is it something that will get compeltely sanded out if i spend enough time at it? Thanks Jocks…..

Design And Build - Memorial Pet Urn #4: Using My New Spline Kerf Cutting Jig

04-16-2011 03:11 AM by Brad_Nailor | 3 comments »

Since I last spoke with you… I did a little preliminary sanding and cleanup of the box, sanding the inside and outside along with the top and bottom to 150. I noticed that the box corners have a slight concave curve due to the cupping of the side pieces. Nothing I can do about it now, so i guess it’s just become a design element! But the real headliner was the spline jig I just built. This will be the first time I use it. I mounted the two outside blades from my dado set shi...

Walnut and Oak Entrance Shelf #2: Routing Template, Sanding

04-12-2011 08:07 AM by superstretch | 2 comments »

Tonight I was finally able to use the 1” flush trim bit I got at Lowes the other day and trim back the edge of the shelf top to the template. With the template removed: Finally, after getting the edges sanded and the rounded profile made more round (with my new Rikon 1” belt/5” disk sander), the top/edges/ends sanded with 400 grit, and a quick wet down (to raise grain and get some of the dust out of the walnut grain): Next up is making final cuts to the back...

new ideas #6: back in the shop

04-11-2011 01:37 AM by JoeyG | 1 comment »

So I have finally finished most of the remodel. Just a few more loose ends to tie up. So I have found a few hours to get into the shop. This is what i have so far. Once again I have to thank Andy., for I am using his style palm boxes. I wanted to give them a spin. I am also taking inspiration from his art boxes with the grinding. I don’t have a sanding disc for my angle grinder, plus these boxes only have 3/8 inch sides so I am using drum sanders. Both on a drill press and in my...

what started out as a passing storm turned into the revenge of the tree onto my house, it was about 9:30 pm and i was going to bed…i started to read and then i heard and felt what i thought was a train hitting the house…my house sits on an elevated foundation and it built fairly strong, the floor are 2×10’s they are nailed and also strapped to 6×6 beams…so the floor and the wall stood the impact. It was pouring down rain with thunder and lightning all around ...

Design And Build - Memorial Pet Urn #3: Making Some Progress

04-08-2011 01:44 AM by Brad_Nailor | 3 comments »

OK when we last spoke, it was decided that the urn would have Maple sides, and Walnut top, bottom and miter splines… So I printed out a cut list and got to work. I cut all the pieces of maple slightly over sized so I could sneak up on the miters and get them perfect. Then I planed and rough sized the walnut for the tops and bottoms. The maple pieces were cut from a board I had planed down to 9/16 some time ago and the pieces were slightly cupped…not good for tight miters. I dec...

new ideas #5: finally

04-03-2011 11:18 PM by JoeyG | 1 comment »

Well I finally made enough progress on the bedroom and half bath remodel that I have had a chance to sneak off into my shop to start a couple projects and make a little saw dust. I started 2 of the 5 eye glass boxes and while doing so I have begun to narrow down the design on the laptop trays I have in mind. I have a couple of pics here of the beginnings of the boxes This one is for my son. It is just the glue up for the top. It is walnut and blood wood This one is for my wife....
