thinning tung oil #1: does thinning tung oil work?

09-08-2019 12:20 AM by harum | 4 comments »

I’m finishing my silver maple project with tung oil because I like the warm yellow color, the figure, and the texture. My finishing schedule is multiple coats of tung oil thinned 1:1 with this super-green (the color is actually bright lemon yellow) citrus solvent. I’ve read an opinion from another ww forum that thinning of tung oil is a waste of time and solvent because the oil molecules aren’t getting changed by the solvent and, one by one, still have to do the same...

Intarsia Rooster Weathervane

09-07-2019 12:09 AM by justoneofme | 8 comments »

Great big hellos to all LumberJock buddies! It seems I’m on a roll!! Now that I’ve completed my (blogged about) Rustic Intarsia donation for Hospice House, I thought it was high time to finally finish off another Intarsia project that’s been hanging around unfinished far too long. My Rooster Weathervane … started in APRIL of 2017!! Years ago I fell in love with the funkiest colorful rooster weathervane ever, and although I couldn’t justify such frivolous expense … a seed was...

Woodworking Project #1: Build our new pastry board (kneading board - dough board)

09-06-2019 08:45 AM by fatmansat | 6 comments »

The time has come to retire the old kneading board, and for this I have recovered beech planks which, as you will see from the video, I have joined together with certified glue for food and after a lot of sanding I have finished with Vaseline oil for use.Watch the full video tutorial:

Shop cabinet #1: Design and side frames

09-06-2019 12:53 AM by Wintergreen78 | 0 comments »

This will be the most involved thing I’ve made so far. Right now I use water stones for sharpening and I do it on my garage floor because I don’t want to deal with getting swarf on my work bench. So, I figured I would make a little cabinet to keep tools and supplies and to have a surface for dirty jobs. It will be 34” high and 22”x32”. I’m planning to glue up a 2” thick maple top and make the rest out of poplar, which i’ll paint. I spent a little time drawing a few versions and working out...

Krenov Cabinet #1: Legs-the Krenov curve

09-05-2019 11:53 PM by Kaelin Quigley | 5 comments »

Krenov style cabinet based off of dimensions in Fine woodworking issue no. 208. I am using both Philippine Mahogany and either elm burl or something exotic for the door fronts. I enjoy the curve of the se legs, they almost look like hooves on a camel. All the mahogany will be stained to appear darker and like its more expensive counterparts.

Seal Coat shellac under varnish on exterior oak door?

09-05-2019 01:16 AM by royroy | 2 comments »

Hi all,I’m about ready to seal, stain and top coat a new, white oak, storm door in Cincinnati. So I’m wondering about using Zinsser’s Seal Coat before the stain goes on and then putting a few coats of Epifane’s varnish to finish it all off. The Seal Coat can says “interior” but with three coats or more of the Epifanes varnish won’t that protect the Seal Coat? I like the warm tone the 1:1 Seal Coat provided on the test pieces. I sent a email to Epifane...

Greene & Greene Thorsen Sideboard #4: Material Prep

09-03-2019 03:47 AM by TungOil | 4 comments »

With my design work essentially complete, it’s time to start rough cutting the Sapele for the solid wood parts. I start with the lower stretchers. Using the pattern routing templates, I lay out the parts to align the grain on some 8/4 stock. After rough cutting the overall shape on the bandsaw, I joint one face and one edge of the boards, then plane to clean up the other side. Then, it’s back to the bandsaw to resaw the parts, followed by another trip to the planer for a final clea...

Router stand "upgrade"

09-03-2019 01:29 AM by BB1 | 5 comments »

My birthday present back in January was the Infinity Tools router stand with the Triton router. I wanted to utilize the space so last month finally got serious about adding drawers. I still want to add something in the front of my dust/chip collection area. I have to access the router to change bits so am thinking I may add some plastic strips that I could easily reach through but would keep the mess inside that compartment. I constructed this using corner brackets, and bolts into t...

Didn’t like the front wheels I made, they are way to modern looking so made some spoke wheels which it turns out are what are see in a picture of the real General.
