Upholstery for Woodworkers Resources #1: Leather Upholstery

09-13-2021 10:26 PM by pintodeluxe | 9 comments »

I see a lot of great woodworkers struggle when it comes time to add upholstery to their chair and furniture projects. Here’s a video on how to upholster a round stool in leather. It would apply to anyone building a round stool with upholstered seat. Also included are some videos on how to upholster a classic arts and crafts style rocking chair, but the techniques also apply perfectly to a Morris chair.

Router Bits #1: Locking Miter Bit - How to Make a Locking Miter Joint (Video)

06-17-2021 07:28 PM by pintodeluxe | 8 comments »

I took some time experimenting with two methods to get crisp results with a locking miter bit back in 2013. I finally had a chance to make a video of these techniques. Here’s the video… https://youtu.be/S1syKkJBIJs Hope it helps someone that is new to routing locking miter joints, or helps someone improve the quality of joints on a second attempt. All you need are some 1/4” and 1/2” thick MDF strips!

New X-Cut Sled Crosscut Sled Design w/ videos

05-08-2021 02:35 PM by pintodeluxe | 6 comments »

Here is a new crosscut sled design I came up with. It has a unique cross bridge that connects the two sides of the sled. It allows cuts up to 36” wide, and 24” deep for any cut, and up to 36” deep in situations where the panel can slide under the cross bridge. Two videos to check out: Dimensions and details of X-Cut Sled https://youtu.be/nXcJPz_VC8o Full build video https://youtu.be/whmbJ_cDueY or check out my channel the Thoughtful Woodworker for woo...

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”...

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...
