Finishing Tips #1: Blotch Control (Homemade)

1219 days ago by pjones46 | 21 comments »

I have been working on a project in Cherry and before I finished the desks I decided to try out some of the General Finishes Dye stain but on the scrap test pieces the blotching was driving me nuts. I came to this site and tried all the suggestions until I came across the discussion proclaiming that Charles Neil’s pre stain conditioner was the way to go. Bought some, tried it and still had minor blotching but it works well. Watching his video he said it was a water based PVA enhanced pro...

LJ Interviews #46: Knotscott

132 days ago by MsDebbieP | 26 comments »

This interview, with knotscott is from the March, 2014 issue of our LumberJocks eMag   1. How did you first get started working with wood? Woodworking was an evolution that went from watching lots of home shows on TV, to trying to do small projects around the house myself, to taking on bigger projects. While rebuilding our front porch railings, I made a chamfer cut on a post with a borrowed router that totally changed the way the post looked. After that I was hooked for life! M...

The Pizza Peel & The Tomato Pie Recipe

378 days ago by thewoodwhisperer | 15 comments »

A pizza peel is a giant spatula intended to deliver a raw pizza to the oven as well as pull the cooked pizza out. Professional versions feature long handles that allow the cook to reach the very back of the oven. A version for the average home can be much more compact. The pizza peel I designed can be made from any wood you like and certainly doesn’t need to be made from expensive woods like bubinga and figured maple. And before you give me crap about it, these were scraps from pr...

Dungeon to Lair: That's the plan at least... #23: Thien Thing (build), Different Day...

489 days ago by DIYaholic | 5 comments »

Yes, this is ANOTHER Thien Top Hat Pre-Seperator B(uild) log, or blog if you will!!! I have the in/famous HF 2HP DC, which has been “Hot Rodded”, but that will be another blog entry. My build was inspired by Pitbull over on In The Workshop with Charles Neil. While that build inspired me, I took many liberties and ultimately came up with my own design. (FYI: I’m using a 30 gallon galvanized trash can as my collection bin.) While researching the build, I stumpled upon th...

Yes I know I’ve recently posted a couple of circle jigs for the bandsaw but there is more than one way to skin a cat and its always useful to have an alternative to call on. This is it Its just a sheet of 6mm Perspex with three slots cut in it and a 6mm pin inserted in a tapped ho...

The Humble Hand Brace - A Beginner's Guide to Restoring, Buying and Using #1: Part 1 - Restoring a Brace to 'Like New' Condition

1075 days ago by Brit | 59 comments »

In a recent tool gloat, dakremer showed off three lovely braces he’d purchased and said “Now I just have to learn how to restore this kind of thing”. WayneC was first to congratulate him and then proceeded to drop me in it (only joking) by saying “Brit has lots of experience in restoring braces”. Later in the comments dakremer said he would love to restore at least one of them to like new condition. Always a sucker for punishment, I agreed to do a blog on restoring a hand brace and I’ve...

Penultimate Contractor Saw tune up method #2: Cleanup and finishing

2006 days ago by marcb | 8 comments »

With the guts removed and on the flat surface You can detect of the 2 bars are out of alignment by attempting to rock them. This is similar to the Delta method but we rock the bars not a flat piece of wood on the bars. If they are out of alignment clamp down the bars and loosen the 2 nuts on the rear side. Once the 2 nuts are loosened, make sure no sawdust is jammed behind them, loosen both clamps then reclamp and double check that the arbor is 90 degrees to the flat surface...
