Christmas ornament patterns? - 6 replies

Does anyone have any Christmas ornament patterns that they could send me e-mail? I want to make some for some gifts but I don’t have any patterns. I know you can get them for free off the internet, but I am not that good with computers. I would be willing to pay for some if I have to. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks jocks!

So I would like the help from the Lumberjocks, please let me know what you would charge for this TV stand. It’s made of oak plywood, pine, and red oak. It has three drawers one on each side and one in the middle. The pics are before the drawer pulls were put on the middle drawer. I fear that I may have undercharged for the piece. If you th...

How do I fit a top and bottom into finger jointed box? - 8 replies

I have alway made my boxes with a grove cut by a table saw in the top and bottom of of the side pieces. This grove would allow a piece of plywood to fit into it as a bottom and a figured piece of wood to fit into the top grove for a top. Glue it up-cut the top off on a table saw and presto a box! Well you get the idea. My question is, I am ma...

What can you use under water based poly? - 6 replies

Can you use BLO? Amber shellac? I am finishing a walnut table top and want a little amber color to it. I put 4 coats of straight water based poly on the bottom of the table today and I hate it. It is so clear that it looks like there is no finish on the table at all.

I am building a table for my wife that she wants to be 36” by 36” with a 36” height (Don’t ask me, those dimensions are ridiculous I think). My question is what overhang should I have for the table ends and sides? I am planning for 5” aprons and 4 inch turned legs.

Anyone know anything about flocking? - 23 replies

So I had some boxes that I needed to finish the insides to. I recently saw some boxes that another guy had made that had flocking on the inside. It looked great! Nice velvet smooth thick finish. So I decided to give it a try. What a disaster! I saw a youtube video about how to do it. The guy used thinned out titebond as an adhesive. So I did the...

This is for you guys out there that turn pens. If you buy the brass tube in long lengths(like I did) how in the heck do you cut it? Tried a pipe cutter and that just tapered the end. Hack saw? Table saw with a metal blade? Band saw? Any thoughts?

What wood doesn't turn gray outside? - 6 replies

I just bought some old wood signs that were used outside for the university and a state park in Missouri. I thought they were pine, but then I realized that they have been sitting in the sun for 50 years or so and are not gray at all. I planed a board down and the wood is medium brown and is not aromatic. The wood also has no knots in it. Anyone...
