A case for spraying finishes #2: Fuji LX-20 HVLP Gravity Feed Gun

03-16-2021 04:54 PM by pintodeluxe | 0 comments »

How has this gun been hidden from the woodworking industry so well? It’s marketed to the auto industry, where it’s apparently a hit, but I couldn’t find a single mention about the LX-20 on woodworking forums. I use it with satin lacquer for topcoating my furniture projects, and the finish it delivers is incredible. The atomization is so fine, you don’t need to touch the second coat at all. I used to wet sand my topcoat for a smooth finish, but since switching to th...

Upholstery For Woodworkers #1: Morris Chair / Rocking Chair Upholstery Resources

02-27-2021 05:55 AM by pintodeluxe | 8 comments »

As a woodworker first and upholsterer second, I struggled for years to find good information on how to upholster Morris Chairs and large rockers. Information on leather upholstery was particularly scarce in books, articles and videos. So I wanted to post this video as a skill share for other crafters that build chairs and might want to try their hand at leather upholstery. If nothing else, it may help someone know what to ask for when hiring an upholsterer. Leather Upholstery Tutori...

Best Blade Cleaner

01-25-2021 11:38 PM by pintodeluxe | 1 comment »

Video of the best blade cleaner I’ve found for carbide saw blades… https://youtu.be/6A9BL6ApuU4 I’ve been using this cleaner for 4-5 years and it really does work fast on stubborn pitch and resin deposits. Dirty tablesaw blades are no match for this cleaner.

Stickley #603 Tabouret Table #2: Cutting Top and Glueup

02-03-2015 01:05 AM by pintodeluxe | 9 comments »

The dry assembly looked good, so I chamfered the ends of the through tenons, and glued up the table. -----Lapped dovetails secure the top stretchers. -----The half-lap joints and the lapped dovetails all came out flush.-----Then I cut the tops with a circle cutting jig and plunge router. I used a 1/4” spiral bit and cut the top free in multiple passes. -----The 1” thick top came out nice, with minimal sanding at the oscillating belt sander. I eased the edges with a 1/8”...

Cherry Refreshment Table #2: Drawer and Hardware

02-23-2014 05:33 AM by pintodeluxe | 4 comments »

This is where we left things last time…-----I built the small single drawer with half blind dovetails at all four corners. -----I installed a 9” full extension undermount drawer slide. I use a hardwood shim between the drawer bottom and the slide. I plane the shim to fine tune the fit of the drawer in its opening. -----Drawer installed.-----The drawer bottom is aromatic cedar.-----Here you can see the blocking that was added to receive the drawer slide, and the figure 8 fasten...

Cherry Refreshment Table #1: Breadboard Ends and Tusk Tenons

02-02-2014 06:40 AM by pintodeluxe | 10 comments »

Here is my cherry refreshment table which will feature a single drawer and breadboard ends.-----I started by making breadboard mortises at the router table. The mortises are 1-1/4” deep and cut in multiple shallow passes. -----I used a 1/4” spiral bit to center a 3/8” groove in the breadboard ends. I made an initial pass in the standard right to left direction. Then I flipped the board end for end and made a pass from left to right to avoid a climb cut.-----I set up my t...

Arts and Crafts Library Desk #6: Drawer Slides and Hammered Pulls

12-22-2013 11:49 PM by pintodeluxe | 11 comments »

With the desk frame finished, I move on to installing the drawers.-----Since I am using single undermount slides for the drawers, I installed glide tacks to keep the drawer from tipping. I use wire cutters to trim the tack to about 1/4” long, which makes them easier to install. -----I centered the slide in the drawer opening , and secured it with mounting screws. -----To adjust the drawer height properly, I add a hardwood strip between the drawer bottom and the slide. The hardwood s...

Arts and Crafts Library Desk #5: Bullet Board, Jeff Jewitt Style Finish

12-18-2013 08:06 PM by pintodeluxe | 8 comments »

In part 4 of this series I pre-raised the grain, and applied the initial coloring with Transtint Brown Mohogany Dye. When the dye is wet it looks amazing, but quickly dries to a lifeless sheen. -----The drawer fronts were stained before assembly. After the glueup dried overnight, the drawers were lacquered. -----The desk was stained with Varathane Dark Walnut oil based stain. When wet the stain looked great, but it too dried to a grayish cast. Not to worry though, once the lacquer was a...

Arts and Crafts Library Desk #4: Secret Compartment Drawers , Transtint Dye

12-16-2013 05:16 PM by pintodeluxe | 7 comments »

With the corbels installed, we can move on to the drawers. -----Here my son sands the drawer parts. -----I made the drawer parts 3-1/4” (the exact width of the drawer opening) to accommodate my dovetail jig. After the dovetails were milled I edge planed them to final size, being careful to remove an equal amount from both edges. -----The dado creates two sections to each drawer.-----The 3/4 extension undermount slides will only display the front drawer compartment. Releasing the fr...

Arts and Crafts Library Desk #3: Inside Corbels

12-10-2013 06:54 PM by pintodeluxe | 8 comments »

This is where we left things last time…-----The desk is quite strong, however it looks pretty plain at this stage. The next step is to add 8 inside corbels, so I made a template routing jig. I like to use toggle clamps, because they double as handles when routing. Carpet tape also works, but for workpieces this small I prefer toggle clamps to keep my hands clear of the bit. -----After cutting the rough shape at the bandsaw, I trim the corbels to size at the router table. Notice how...
