My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #581: Have a Heart!

01-12-2012 02:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

I was gone much of yesterday, but I did manage to finish up my ornaments when I got home. I suppose that I was just too excited to leave them until the next day and couldn’t wait to see how they came out. I am really pleased with them and I hope that everyone else likes them too. After doing a final sanding on them, I dipped them in my usual mineral oil. I am finding this as my favorite method for finishing up fretwork and small pieces like this. It is quick and easy and doesn...

Grinder Sculpting #7: The Finishing Continues

01-12-2012 12:44 AM by JoeyG | 9 comments »

I decided to go with just the tung oil finish on this one. I may wax and buff it at the end, I’ll wait to see if it needs it or not. I have pictures of the second and third coats here. I gave each coat at least 24 hours to dry then sanded with 400 and then reapplied the finish. Second coat Third coat I don’t know how many coats I will do total, it depends on how it builds. I’ll see ya next time.Joey

SoZo Coffee Shop Table Top Series #1: Coffee Shop Table Top Project

01-11-2012 04:55 PM by Doug McPherson | 26 comments »

Some friends of mine run a local Coffee Roasting and Espresso Bar here in my area (Michigan), and they contacted me about building six new table tops for their coffee shop. For the design, we decided to inlay their company logo in each table. I’m using Maple, Walnut and Cherry. I decided to start with making the star. To save some work, I made just two variations, but made them thick enough so that after the glue up, I could slice them in to multiple st...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #580: The Spice of Life

01-11-2012 01:19 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Those of you who know me well know that I am not a ‘random’ type of person. I generally like to keep everything pretty organized and when I do something, it is done systematically and orderly. I find that as my way to keep my busy life under control. I have always been somewhat like that. With that said, I realize that doing an assignment or project such as the one I am working on now is something if a stretch for me. It isn’t often that I do something that is on this...

Walnut Coffee Table #4: Base Section Complete (with pics)

01-11-2012 12:52 AM by Lifesaver2000 | 2 comments »

My schedule didn’t work out as planned last week, but this past weekend things moved along nicely. I have completed construction of the base of the table. There is still a lot of sanding to do but for now I am ready to move on to the next step. You can see the pine lumber on the inside which will support the full-extension drawer slides. This was a case where lack of planning actually caused more work than should have been necessary, but as I was drawing up the plans I...

Grinder Sculpting #6: The Finish Begins

01-08-2012 04:39 AM by JoeyG | 18 comments »

After sanding and sanding and then sanding some more I have finally started to get a little finish on this thing. I have been trying to decide what to use and finally decided to use Minwax Tung Oil Finish. I have been using the polycrylic a lot lately and want to do something else. I have debated using it over the tung oil finish but I am a little worried. I am working on a sample piece and the tung oil will have time to fully dry while I work on it. I figured I would show my sample pi...

Making a Chisel Plane

01-07-2012 04:31 AM by Scott R. Turner | 3 comments »

I started work recently on a little rack for the workshop to hold sandpaper, and when I was rabbeting the back with my new fillister plane I found myself wanting a rabbet plane for the final adjustments. I’ll probably eventually buy one, but I remembered the chisel plane project sitting in my favorites and decided to have a go at it. (Too late for the sandpaper rack project, but still…) My approach is largely based on the project from GarageWoodworks. I had some leftover ma...

Strip Canoe #1: Canoe

01-05-2012 08:47 AM by Philip "Pip" Storm | 26 comments »

With incouragement from other Lumberjocks I decided to blog on the progress of my canoe project. As you will see I have built the strongback, mounted the forms, and pretty much started stripping with pine. These pics and vids were done with my ipod so they’re not the best. Future pics will be done with my wifes Canon. I also want to include a video I posted on youtube about a week before posting my project on L.J.

Box with hand cut finger joints #2: Sanding and finishing what I started

01-04-2012 02:30 AM by Sanman | 3 comments »

I moved on and finished the box. I cleaned up the joints, sanded and added a little filler. The lid is some kind of hardwood and I really wanted to see it finished. These are before and after sanding shots on the lid. I conditioned the wood, stained and added several coats of lacquer.
