  1. It's Bigger On The Inside...

    I'm a wee bit of a Doctor Who fan… If you haven't already figured that one out and I'm sure you can all relate to needing more shop space so I figured I'd turn the shop door into a Tardis. I haven't really figured out the interior dimensional changes as of yet but I think it has to do with the...
  2. Resume for Santa... Built-In Corner Media Cabinet

    Dear Santa, I know I haven't written in a while, been super busy being a grown-up and all, you know how it goes… but now I have two little guys that are completely enamored with you. You bring joy into our home two months out of the year and I thought it would be awesome if I worked for you the...
  3. Urn for the unknown/unclaimed GI

    Our Guild was approached by some organizations asking for Urn's to be used to bury veterans who's remains were unclaimed. There is no way in the world I can picture a veteran of this country being buried in a plastic bag or cardboard box. I know our guild (CFWG.org) and many others will be happy...

    This is my first project that made it into the house. It's from the Popular Woodworking book, Arts and Crafts Furniture Projects.

    From one hobby to another. My wife has wanted a shelf for her crafting area. She needed something to hold fabrics, and cubbies to organize project materials. had some old pine boards I salvaged from my garage shelving. Planed, ripped, cut some curves with the new bandsaw and timberwolf...

  8. Finishing
    The topic of gloves in the work shop has been beaten into the ground. The one area no one seems opposed to their use, and reasonably so, is in the matter of finishing. A little stain or dye goes a long ways. Sometimes, about a week of scrubbing, long ways. Obviously, having gloves to protect...
  9. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    I've read absolutely glowing reviews of the Gloves In A Bottle on Amazon.com (most reviewers love the healing and moisture preserving properties), but the Invisible Glove is a slightly better price with pretty good reviews also. I'm mostly concerned with how either product protects hands from...
  10. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I've been catching some nice videos and one guy had a latex base, waxy substance but I can't find the video again, it looks like white glue. Any idea where one can get this? The other greenwood sealer that has been mentioned is very expensive and it would like to see what this kind runs. Thanks...
  11. Finishing
    Hey all! I am at the point of pure confusion…There is so many different ways to go for finishing. I am at the point of my workbench/assembly table build where I need to put a finish on it. I want the MDF drawer fronts to have a high shine to them, in like a Safety Blue color. So there i was...
  12. Finishing
    I want to step up from my 2 stage Earlex HV5500. It's a great sprayer for nearly every wood finish except for latex paint. It will spray latex, but I have to thin it a little more than I'm comfortable with. I've considered airless, but the setup and cleanup is too much for the small projects...
  13. Wood & Lumber
    Hey guys, I'm in need of some advice. I built a medicine cabinet for my bathroom out of poplar because I intended on painting it. I learn some lessons during the priming and painting process. I currently have an oil based primer applied with a latex paint applied as a topcoat. I'm wondering...
  14. Finishing
    Hi, just getting into spraying and my first little project is a bathroom vanity. I had a little time on my hands so instead of brushing the latex paint finish I figured I would spray it just for more spraying practice. Here is my question: I use Benjamin Moore paint which is expensive and...
  15. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Still looking to purchase a table saw and ran across these two. Both contractor's saw. Both around the same price, within 75 bucks. The first is a Rigid, looks to be a newer model but unsure as they do not tell the model. It is said to be in excellent like-new condition. The other is an older...
  16. Woodworking Skill Share
    I have spray painted our kitchen cabinet doors a high gloss latex….they look great but not as glossy as moma wants….wondering if I can over coat it with water based gloss lacquer. Has any of you done this? Or is there something else you would suggest
  17. Finishing
    I recently purchased an Earlex 5500 to paint a bunch of trim. I decided I am also going to try painting a bedroom with it. I did a test run tonight on some scrap drywall, and I'm not sure what to think. Here are the details: - ~8oz of Ben Moore Regal (old style, not new Regal Select) - 2oz...
