Salt and Pepper Mill finishes

05-04-2011 04:26 PM by Craig Havran | 1 comment »

So I’m going to be turning a salt and pepper mill this weekend and I’m curious as to what kinds of finishes I should use. I was planning on a sanding sealer and maybe a friction polish, but does anybody know if the salt from the mill will damage any of this? should I use a poly? Thanks everybody…. i love this site.

Roubo Cabinet #4: Resurfacing Material

05-02-2011 09:59 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 4 comments »

With plan and materials in hand it’s time to build panels that will become the Roubo Cabinet (with pictures!) Not for the faint at heart, this entry contains extensive hand plane use that many would consider exhausting and (essentially) pointless in the modern workshop. I, of course, see things differently. Up to this point, I’d not had a project that required solid wood panels that had to be joined / assembled to this extent. So ‘gluing up panels’ had meant rail and style stuff, not what ...

This week in urban logging #16: Walnut milling (ugly old log)

05-02-2011 07:33 PM by Daren Nelson | 13 comments »

Some times I just can’t (and shouldn’t) do this. That was nice straight logs, grade sawn. When I get an ’’ugly’’ one I like to saw it out live edge. Decide how to lay it on the mill to get the best cuts is step one. 6/4 table top slabs… 8/4 live edge slabs… Kinda heavy fresh sawn 24’’-27’’ wide and I am 6’2’’ for scale. I couldn’t live edge the whole log aft...

Workshop upgrades #2: Scraper shave fun

05-02-2011 04:46 AM by RGtools | 2 comments »

I did not have a lot of energy by the time I got done with everything else that I had to do, so my “mini-roubo” was just a bit out of reach. I still wanted to do something, so I went to the scrap heap and found a piece of walnut large enough to split down to a more straight grained piece. The goal here is to make a scraper shave, here are the prospective parts in there rough format the now straight grained walnut, a piece of desert ironwood (sometimes the scrap pile really pays...

Corner Tables - Take 2 #1: The beginning

04-27-2011 04:09 AM by Rick | 3 comments »

So here I go – making another set of tables. This time for my mother-in-law. She never really asks for anything for herself, so when she saw these and liked them, I couldn’t help but make a set. And this will satisfy a need she’s had in her living room for over a year. So, off I go – only this time it’s really only on weekends we don’t have softball… And for those who trudged through my last set with me through the blog, I’m doing this one...

Roubo Cabinet #1: Why and What?

04-26-2011 09:26 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 7 comments »

Twenty-five months ago I built my Roubo workbench based on plans in C. Schwarz’ first Workbenches book. I read the cautions to keep the underside of the benchtop clear of anything that would impede clamping, protruding holdfasts, etc. and finished the base with a simple shelf. I did add a small, single drawer to the underside about six months later, based on examples in Roubo illustrations, but nothing else. About a year ago I was fortunate to come across a traditional cabinetmaker’s workb...

Making of a currency box #1: 1

04-23-2011 10:57 AM by Ian Hawthorne | 2 comments »

Hi All I thought I would share a WIP of a commission I made last year. It was a currency box and was made to hold notes on one side and an inner lid is opened to reveal the coin section. The inside of the inner lid had an area to hold passport and credit cards. It was fitted with 2 locks for a partnership. The box was made from walnut and the motif on the lid was from curly maple. Lined in green suede and fitted with good quality hardware. The exterior was french polished. Enjoy ...
