  1. Maple Corner Cabinet & Walnut Frame

    I finally got around to posting these old projects! This is the first time I've let any of my projects into the wild for comment, so please be nice… but I don't mind hearing constructive criticism either! The corner cabinet is made from mostly Hard Maple. The details consist of Bubinga...
  2. First Post - Pinewood Derby Car

    This is a car. It has wings. It can go really fast. It has wheels. I made it by myself. I am proud about it. It got second place for style. I made it out of the block in the kit. It has stickers. The numbers are 712. 712 is pack number. I painted it. It has a penny embedded in it on the top for...
  3. 3 in 1 crib and Changing Table

    Just finished my second crib and changing table. My wife said I did such a good job on the first one that I needed to make another set for the second child. This one I changed up a bit. You can see I didn't make a curved head board and back on the changing table. I also put slats on the side...
  4. Firewood Bandsaw Box

    Ever since I got my new band saw this year I've been meaning to investigate some of the oak firewood that's been piled up for a couple years now. So a couple weeks ago I grabbed a decent size piece and headed to the shop. It's like unwrapping a Christmas gift when you start cutting it open to...
  5. Small Walnut and Birdseye Maple

    Two small bowls made with walnut and birdseye maple. I wanted to accentuate the birdseye maple on the second one, and left the rim wider. The bowls are finished with Danish oil and buffed to high polish.
  6. Reception Desk for Doctors Office

    This is a reception desk I just finished for our friend's office, she was moving to a bigger office and needed a counter to fit her space. She was very happy with it. It turned out much better than I expected. The desk and bar tops are southern yellow pine. The base and planking are all pine...
  7. Finishing
    So, I have an Earlex 5500 and I'm spraying General Finished water based poly (gloss white). I've sprayed this before with what I thought was success but it was on a VERY small project. Well today I am spraying a much larger project and I'm spraying it in the basement. I put up some thin...
  8. Finishing
    OK, I'm painting some wainscoting I installed. I recently purchased the Earlex 5500 hvlp system. I've read plenty about spraying latex paints but haven't seen anything about latex primers. My understanding is that primer tends to be thicker and harder to shoot. I'm using Sherwin Williams...
  9. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have a 6" Grizzly jointer, and just meticulously followed instructions for tuning it up. I ran several pieces of maple through that I want to use to create a table top. Alas, when I line them up the ends touch but there is a gap of probably 1/64" for most of the length of each pair. (Nothing...
  10. Finishing
    I have an Earlex 5500 with two tips/nozzles: 2.0 mm and 2.5 mm, and I am new to paint spraying. Current Project, painting/finishing cabinets for the basement and garage. I plan to spray General Finishes "Enduro Clear Poly" (waterborne polyurethane) on top of their milk paint. They recommend a...
  11. Finishing
    A while back I purchased the Earlex 5500 spray station. I went with this product for its ability to spray latex and waterborne finishes in general. The reviews say it sprays latex very well. I've done my research and no matter what I try the results are lack luster. I have added water...
