Small Projects #21: No Ruler Hexagonal Door Knob Stop

03-26-2020 07:59 PM by Madmark2 | 2 comments »

Roscoe, our English bulldog, decided that the spring doorstop was something good to chew on. In fact it was so good he pulled it out of the moulding. Next thing you know we’ve got a doorknob shaped dent in the sheetrock. Woodworking to the rescue! Yayyy! I bought one of those round wall stops, but they’re about the same diameter as the knob and won’t easily mount to the dent (which is obviously exactly where it needs to mount.)Round Stop I had a nice chunk of oak 1...

A Mallet from a Tree

03-21-2020 11:41 PM by Tom | 1 comment »

I recently had a dying oak tree taken down at my home. It was probably 30 or 40 years old, so pretty good size. I had it cut into a couple big logs (to be milled later) and firewood. Before the contractor ground the stump, he cut off a slab down to ground level. I cut some chunks from the slab for a mallet thinking that the wood may be pretty tough from the bottom of the tree. I don’t really know if this is true though. I shaped one of the chunks into an oversized block ...

Small Projects #15: Model Paint Organizer

02-16-2020 12:05 AM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

To make the wonderbread pipes I needed small volumes of several different colors. A trip to the hobby store and I’m now the proud owner of a bunch of small Testor’s paint vials, thinner and brushes. Needless to say in my (admittedly) cluttered shop keeping the paints and stuff in one place quickly becomes an issue. But hey! I’m a woodworker! I can fix that! I rummaged around for a few scraps and built this: The bottom is oak (it was the only piece of 3-1/2” wide ...

Behind-the-scenes tour - how we make flooring

02-03-2020 05:57 PM by Steve | 0 comments »

Here is a behind the scenes tour of us making some red oak rift and quartered hardwood flooring. If you’ve never seen the process before it’s kind of cool to see (at least I think so!). This link will take you to my YouTube channel. Why, you ask? Because I cannot figure out how to embed video on LumberJocks anymore (it used to work for me). If anyone knows how, please let me know! Thanks-Steve

Small Projects #8: Jatoba and Marble Plant Stand

01-27-2020 10:21 PM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

This is a project I made about 20 years ago. It’s out of jatoba with a “Tito’s Green” marble floor tile inset into the top. The wood is finished with Johnson’s paste floor wax and the jatoba has darkened to the lovely burgundy color you see here:Jatoba Plant Stand Marble is porous and watering spills will be absorbed and evaporate. Being a floor tile instead of a wall tile it is thicker and heavier than a wall tile. The unit was quite heavy as I just planed...

Small Projects #2: Small Oak Tool Tray

01-27-2020 12:16 AM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

The better half doesn’t always say anything but I know my leaving small hand tools on her coffee table irks her to no end. To preserve the peace I made this little (12” x 8” x 3-1/2”) oak tool caddy to toss my stuff in one place instead of being scattered to-hell-and-gone. I had a couple of 1/4” x 3-1/2” x 36” pieces of store bought (BORG) oak kicking around and this seemed like a good project. I cut the boards into six 11-3/4” pieces. The...

Drop Leaf Table #11: A Cowardly Finish

01-17-2020 05:51 PM by Tom | 4 comments »

I am pretty wimpy when it comes to finishing my projects. It stems from a total lack of knowledge and experience. In the past, I have used oil based stains, brush on polyurethane, oils, shellac, etc. Some woods do not take oil based stain very well. I did a cabinet in maple which took me a long time to build using my hand tool methods. I tried to stain it to match another piece and it was a blotchy mess. I had to rework the finish for days to get a decent look. Staining poplar has also...

Drop Leaf Table #8: Winterthur, Hinges and a Quick Drawer

01-06-2020 06:03 PM by Tom | 3 comments »

Really starting to wrap up the work on this drop leaf table. Over the holidays, I visited Winterthur for the Yuletide mansion tour. It is really interesting to see all the furniture on display. Meanwhile, they have a nice gallery display of the Dominy workshop and some furniture pieces on display that were made at the shop. One of the items was a “Breakfast Table” aka Pembroke table. Somehow, I missed a picture of the actual table which was similar to mine, but a bit more ref...

Loft Dining Table

01-05-2020 08:33 PM by BuildItYourself | 0 comments »

HelloToday I show my new project Loft Dining Table. The whole is made of oak wood. Painted with nitro stain and Italian varnish for countertops. The table base is made of a 60×40 metal profile. In this project I was learning to weld for the first time (I think it went pretty well). The base was powder painted black matt. Table dimensions: 1500×900mm and is folded out to 2500×900mm. Look my video
