  1. Reclaimed pallet wood cutting board (mostly white and red oak)

    The series for this project - here is quite in-depth, so I won't recreate it here. I'll just sum up… I got a stack of slats from a pallet from a local bearing shop all cut up nicely in a stack of 14"-16" pieces. Sorting them, I found many that appeared to be kinds of oak. I ran these over the...
  2. Replacement Table Top

    This table (metal base) originally had a wood top with a glass center insert. The glass was broken so my wife asked that I just make a new top so we could reuse the table on the screened porch. I used poplar because that's all I had on had on hand at the time but she wanted it stained dark. I...
  3. Curved loudspeakers

    I built these out of an MDF frame similar to a model airplane fuselage and covered in three layers of 1/4" Masonite. There are two ported chambers inside, one for the woofer and one for the midrange. The tweeter is sealed. I built the crossovers after reading three books on the subject and using...
  4. Antoher cutting board

    Just another end grain cutting board. I was supposed to make my wife a cutting board about two years ago. But as I screwed up over and over it got smaller and smaller. She finally got fed up with it and demanded a real one "Right Now". Its maple and walnut scraps. I didn't have enough to...
  5. Dust collection in shop

    Well I finally made up my mind and did something about it. When I first built my shop I envisioned putting my dust collector in a small building against one outside wall of my shop. Then after going through a summer here in Texas without being able to go into the shop due to the heat and...
  6. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hello All, I have a question for all you festool users. I am planning on buying a festool rotex 125 sander and I was curious about where to get replacement sanding discs. Due to the unique design of festools dust collection I am wondering if I would be stuck buying ALL replacement sanding...
  7. Finishing
    Unfinished pine, medium-to-dark stain, tried 2 brands of conditioners, blotching continues. Do not want yellowing over time (planning on using lacquer in lieu of poly). I've been advised to try sealer prior to staining, but I'm not sure if this yellows over time. What are your expert suggestions...
  8. Finishing
    Hi all, I'm building a Blue Tooth speaker (budget build for shop tunes)... And I need some advise on finishing Poplar, which I've been warned is prone to blotching . Also, since this project is being done on the cheap, I'd like to bias my decision towards using what I have. -> I have a jug...

    First of all, I am new to the site and let me just say, it is an awesome resource! Thanks to all who contribute and keep it up and running. I did a search, trying to find an answer to my question, but had no luck specifically, so here goes: I have probably finished 100 sets of new alder...
  10. Finishing
    I sanded up through the grits to 220 and applied one coat of arm r seal. I left the area and came home 3 days later and was really disappointed in how blotchy it looked. Does anyone have experience with this or some advice? I am thinking of sanding off this first coat and using the CN...

    visualizing a cutting board in SketchUp I got some good suggestions in my last post about what to do with this block that I glued up from mostly reclaimed red oak pallet wood: One of the ideas I liked best was an end grain cutting board. I realized I had pics of each side of the block, so I...

    Blotch Control Blotching is uneven coloring on the substrate, and wood is the substrate I am discussing here. There are many ways to change the look of wood - dyes, dye stain, pigment stain, and variations of both (paint, glazes, and pigment only stains primarily sit on top of the wood and...
  13. Finishing
    Hello, I have not had to deal with conditioner yet. However, I'm requesting assistance: Which should I use first, conditioner or putty? This is for a walnut frame that'll sit on a display I'm composing for a senior ranking official in my command. Second, I sanded down some anomalies in oak...
  14. Finishing
    Hi Everyone, I am working on a valet box made of maple, and I was wondering if you can use wood conditioner as a finish. It is oil based. This project wouldn't receive a lot of hard use. I used it on a scrap piece and it looked good, but i was wondering the long term durability of it...

    There's always some thing on the floor around the back door at home. I 'm thinking this might help . I was just wondering if I should replace the tread with something stronger as the bracing might have to be conpensated? If you have done this how do you safety lock the drawer so they don't pop...
