I have over the past few weeks been able to start taking some overstock merchandise, merchandise that the customer either forgot about or didn’ t have the funds to pay after the customer used the companies sharpening service.

Sprint to Finish #4: finishing things

298 days ago by Chris Cook | 1 comment »

I selected a small piece of highly figured padauk for the front feature and remade it to my scratch trial dimensions: After a few hours of sanding I was ready for finishing in tung oil: I used three sessions for 3 coats of tung oil lightly sanding in between. My plans for the bottom surfaces for everything was velvet glued down. this comes down to a nice fit for the velvet cuts. I decided to find a use for the old pink printer paper we had and used it to cut templates...

Sprint to Finish #3: tray+

298 days ago by Chris Cook | 3 comments »

The next part was to figure how a nice tray would work into this. I thought I would just make a set-in tray with small compartments. This would be made of the same padauk: for the bottom I joined two pieces of the same padauk: This tray is done the same as the box in that I wanted all edges to be 45 degree miters: I had the idea of integrating the zebra wood into tray as the center handle/separator. It just stands out like a rusty nail though. In fact,...

Sprint to Finish #2: progress continues

298 days ago by Chris Cook | 2 comments »

I wanted to go with a technique I have been playing with where I miter every edge. I just made a new 45 degree sled for my saw and made a few test boxes that gave me some confidence in getting all the 45 degree corners right. after cutting all the 45s for the sides, I taped things together to test the fit: I then made the top 45 degree cuts in preparation for the lid cuts: As everybody knows, when you do this: If you are off 1/2 degree on all your 45s, you get gaps....

Sprint to Finish #1: good results in good time

299 days ago by Chris Cook | 2 comments »

This is a jewelry box project for my Daughter’s 22 birthday at the end of the month. Due to the time I spent trying to plan this out, I didn’t get to start until the second week of August. I spent time with concepts in Sketchup and was going to get crazy with an octagon box, but I am glad I moved past that now. The two of us spent a Saturday morning running around town so I asked if she would mind a quick stop by my favorite wood supplier (Peachstate Lumber) In a ...

Build a Steam Box

348 days ago by WoodJediNTraining | 8 comments »

Recently I purchased a Steam Bending Kit from Rockler Woodworking and Hardware so I could try out some Steam Bending. Bending wood is something I have never tried before and is out of my comfort zone. I wanted to dive into this area of woodworking and challenge myself as well as learn something new. So of the various forms of wood bending (Laminated Bending, Milled Bending, Steam Bending) I chose steam bending to be my first attempt. The kit I purchased included the reservoir, hose, and so...
