Entry Closet Project #8: The End is Here!

01-09-2008 04:58 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 32 comments »

Finished! Well it’s been a long journey and it did not end without one extra push. I finished installing the copper handles Monday by 11:30. There was a couple of scratches but I was certain I could buff them out. This is a skill that goes with the territory. I worked on the finish for the next six hours and I could not get the finish to blend. How to Remove a Scratch- After exhausting all other options this is what I resorted to today: Yes you are seeing it correctly...

Entry Closet Project #7: One Step Closer!

01-06-2008 03:16 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 26 comments »

Another Milestone I am pretty excited to share with you guys today’s progress. I got all of the handle pieces finished! Next I have some touch up on the doors and the final install. I am sure I will have a full day of technical sweating. I had to brush the pieces again on the wire wheel to brighten the finish. I then hung them from the ceiling and wiped them down thoroughly with acetone. This strips any oil from the surface. I sprayed them with an acrylic resin lacquer by Sh...

Photography #1: A Photography Studio In The Shop

01-01-2008 03:42 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 24 comments »

The final act… Buffing the final coat of finish is the moment of birth for a project. After that it is carefully wrapped and delivered to start its’ life with family, friend, or client. One part of the woodworking process that most of us don’t figure in is the photography. I can tell you from experience that this a very important part of furniture making. It is not an option if you are planning on doing woodworking and furniture as a business, be it full or part time....

Entry Closet Project #5: OH, Baby It's Hot!

12-29-2007 06:33 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 34 comments »

Exciting Progress.. I am making some great progress on my closet project. I currently have the copper rods in a machine shop where the parts are being fabricated. The clients and I had talked about changing the lights to better illuminate the fine work that I have produced. While the metal work is being done I decided to go ahead and install the new lights. WOW! Man-OH-Man! Does it ever look fantastic! Here is the closet with the old lights: Here is the closet with the n...

The Craftsman's Path #20: Queen Anne Side Table - More leg shaping

12-23-2007 05:47 PM by Mark Mazzo | 3 comments »

I was out of town last weekend for a family wedding so, progress on the table was stalled a bit. I got some more time in the shop yesterday and went to work shaping the legs for the table toward their final state. I had started this process before my trip but, I was not quite happy with some parts of the effort. The trip away allowed me to think about how I wanted to approach making changes for the better. You can read about my progress at my blog where there are a lot of pictures of the ...

Point of Evanesce ....two kings hedge with time, twas an open veil of rite, i transcend with wood….—by flp I’ve not had much computer time as of late for blogging, so it feels good to get a post up. We seem to be getting hammered with snow….a little much early up here this year, so I’m busy outside working the plow truck and doing clean-up around the place.

The Best of 'Wood Art" #6: "Defining Design in Wood" --by RusticWoodArt

12-15-2007 02:32 PM by frank | 6 comments »

Defining Design in Wood ....and so I continue finding the numbers that can be assembled out of 2’‘x4’‘x96’’, or as I have now come to see as (2) re-sawed wood pieces of 1’‘x4’‘x96’’.... Designs are the dreams I write//draw on paper, after imagination has come back, from where she flies in the lofty clouded skies of inspiration. No-idea of where this one was going, when I started this one….just let my hands go ...
