06-16-2009 06:33 AM by trifern | 55 comments »

I have had numerous requests for a how to blog about my dyeing techniques. I use water base aniline dyes. This technique the dye is applied using 20 cent sponge brushes and cheap paper towels. I typically work from the darkest colors to the lightest, creating layers of color. This piece is turned from fiddle back maple. My apologies for not taking a photograph prior to applying any dyes.

Saw Medallion Reference Guide

02-13-2014 01:52 AM by summerfi | 78 comments »

SAW MEDALLION REFERENCE GUIDE Saw medallions, or label screws as they are sometimes called, are invaluable for identifying old saws. Additionally, many of them are small works of art in themselves. I don’t know of a comprehensive reference source for saw medallions that covers all makers, so I decided to start one here. My intent is to add to this list over time to make it as complete as possible. If you run across a medallion that is not listed here, post a picture of it in the comments, ...

06-28-2013 12:27 PM by huff | 13 comments »

Marketing and selling your woodworking (What’s the best way?) Well, there’s a lot of ways to go about marketing and selling your work, so I thought I would take the time and write a series on just that. Some of you may be familiar with the series I did a few weeks ago on pricing your woodworking. I received a lot of positive response to it and a number of woodworkers showed an interest on doing a topic on actually marketing and sellin...

Antique Radio Cabinet Retrofit #9: Part 9: Front Panel Rebuild

10-24-2016 07:40 PM by Pags | 1 comment »

Its been over a year and a half since I stopped working on this project… sorry for the delay to those that have been following this project… hard to believe so much time has passed. Anyway, when I got started on rebuilding the front panel I hit a snag… my integrated amp wasn’t going to fit into the front panel the way I wanted it to. It was very close, but it just wasn’t going to work. I had to stop and rethink the project. So the cabinet has been sitting in ...

Sharpening 101 for Newbies- What Should I Use? #1: Sharpening Methods I've Tried

03-04-2013 01:53 PM by BigRedKnothead | 22 comments »

Early on, a woodworker is forced to decide upon a sharpening system or product. And I know we have some folks on Ljs who are just entering the wonderful world of hand tools. This is my attempt to not leave those people hangin when it comes to sharpening. Clearly, planes and chisels are just handsome paperweights if they’re not sharp.Let me start by saying that I am far from an expert. Shoot I’ve only been using and sharpening hand tools effectively for about a year. I spent the pr...

wood inlay with rock and resin #1: this is my technique

08-30-2010 11:19 PM by rusticandy | 6 comments »

Hello. Here’s my disclaimer! Let me start by saying: wear respirator protection throughout this whole process! This is dangerous dusty work, and I claim no responsibly for what you do with this information. This is just an account of what I do. It took me awhile to figure out the inlay piece, and I’m more than willing to share what I’ve learned. Ive attached rock crushers and a pic of resin and rock on a scrap to my projects section- im just not up to speed on this HTM...
