FINISHING #2: Finishing with Wax & Oil Pt 1

04-20-2008 09:35 PM by Tony | 5 comments »

Wax and Oils are one of the oldest, if not the oldest form of protection for wood and wood products known to man – it has been used for millennia all over the world. On the market today there are a multitude of products to choose from natural waxes, such as Bees Wax or Carnauba Wax to hybrid waxes, which are mixed with other oils and waxes to make application and drying times faster. These hybrid wax systems are usually available in different colours, which enable you to stain wood at the...

03-25-2011 04:44 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 22 comments »

Download Low ResolutionDownload High ResolutionSubscription Options Its all about dye, “Wood Whisperer Style”. My goal with this video is to grossly simplify the confusing world of dyes, while also giving you the knowledge you need to determine the working characteristics of any dye just by looking at the ingredients list or MSDS. We’ll discuss the different types of dyes, how to apply them, and we’ll even get into the chemistry behind water-based finishes and a ke...

Building a Credenza #1: Design Process

05-08-2010 09:07 AM by Blake | 13 comments »

For several months now I have been dreaming about building a credenza as the ultimate next project to tackle. I don’t have a clue where I am going to put it when its done. I don’t have any space for a 6 foot long cabinet, but I really want to build one. So I started drawing and looking at pictures of credenzas online. A credenza is basically a low, wide cabinet that is mostly used these days as living room furniture, often below the TV. My first design looked like this: ...

My 1st Attempt at Greene and Greene Style Furniture #1: The Beginning - With help from Darrell Peart

11-07-2010 09:35 PM by Don | 8 comments »

I’ve been an admirer of Greene and Greene style of furniture for a long time. I love the soft edges and exposed joinery and I think Greene and Greene were masters at proportions which is where I feel I am the weakest when it comes to design. I’ve been wanting to take my woodworking up a notch and try something a little more challenging than the stuff I’ve been doing and improve my design skills so I’d been looking for an appropriate project. When I read Darrell Peart’s articles in Woodworking...

03-23-2010 01:01 AM by Eric_S | 11 comments »

These pics aren’t really exciting though but its a work in progress. The legs are hard maple and the rest is cherry. THe panels are more of a Red cherry and the top and drawer fronts when finished will be curly cherry. The legs. On the 4th leg from the left I had to use maple wood filler half way up after partially ...

Slant Front Secretary #1: Kickoff

11-12-2010 06:06 AM by DavidH | 1 comment »

I have been a subscriber of Charles Neil’s woodworking show (Mastering Woodworking with Charles Neil) since its inception in October of 2009. To this point I really have not had time to follow along with a build; I’ve put one or two on my bucket list to come back to at some point in time. However, this time I just can’t help myself. A project that has been number one on my bucket list for sometime is a slant front secretary. It just so happens that the next project will be j...

My Secret Magic Mix :)

12-05-2007 03:12 AM by Don Kondra | 32 comments »

If you dread the finishing part of a project as I used to, perhaps I can persuade you to give this mix/technique a try. The idea of using an oil combined with a film forming finish is not new; this is simply the one I have settled on after experimenting with a number of different products. An ideal finish should be easy to apply, enhance the grain and figure of the wood and provide a reasonable level of protection from normal wear and tear. The soft hand rubbed glow is a bonus. If yo...

A veneered curly koa, James Krenov style cabinet on a sculpted, curved leg, stand. The doors are bookmatched with a strip of sapwood down the middle. The turned Gaboon ebony handles accent the koa’s colors. This was a joint project with expert woodworker and friend, Jack Hutchison from Houston TX. and it was built in six days. But first I want to thank everyone who visited and responded to my last blog; A very large walnut and walnut burl credenza I’ve admired Jack’...
