  1. Journal Fireplace Surround/Mantel Details: Priming and Painting (and Final Installation)

    Return to Contents Anyone who's read a few of my project posts knows that I dislike painting. I'm too timid with a brush. I see videos where painters apply these long, smooth swaths of paint, but I'm never able to do that. I'm okay with a roller, but my wife detests roller stipple. (She doesn't...
  2. Shop-made Sharpening System for Woodturners (roughing, spindle, bowl, skew, etc.)

    The best sharpening system for woodturning tools, in my view, is this: http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page.aspx?p=52372&cat=1,43072,52372 If you have some shop time and interest in building your own sharpening system for your turning tools, it is not hard to do so from scraps...
  3. Pallet Wood Painting

    My wife went on Pinterest and I got to spend the weekend making this for her instead of getting the shop better organized! Oh well, shop projects are never ending anyway. I'm not the most experienced painter, but luckily she wanted this one to still be a bit rustic looking. First pallet...

  6. Saving a "ghost" advertising sign

    Last August, I volunteered to repaint one of our small town's old building advertising signs that is 68 feet wide and about 24 feet high. It was originally painted sometime before 1934. One of the challenges on this project was the big missing letter "I" in Occident. I went online, and found a...
  7. Taper Jig for Tablesaw

    Making my first table. I needed a jig to taper 30" legs from 1 5/8 to 3/4 and came up with this design so I wouldn't have to make another jig again in the future. Holes are predrilled to be able to move the clamps to the middle of the riser blocks or the other side of the riser blocks, giving a...

  12. WoodArt by My Mom

    On the weekend I was looking at some of the art I have, created by my Mom, and I realized that it is wood-art and so I'm going to show it off. Wood: fungus Process: sealed, painted, sealed again. Process 2: admired. I had originally tried attaching a picture to the fungus but that didn't work...

    This is two paintings I did for a Classic Joe's Resturant.
  14. Nude on wood: My wife

    No, it's not a painting of my wife, it's a painting done BY my wife! She is a professional artist that normally works in oil on canvas. Once in a while she comes up to the shop with coffee to bribe me for some wood off cuts on which she "plays", just for diversion. There are only 6×4 and 6×8 and...
  15. Reclaimed Pine Frame for a Painting

    A simple frame from reclaimed Pine :) I pinned the joints together using 6mm bamboo dowels drilled through at a 45 degree angle.
  16. Kids Easel

    Made this for the kids two Christmases ago and it still gets plenty of use. I used white board in the frame on one side for dry erase markers and left the other side with just a plywood panel to support a pad or roll of paper for painting. Since these pics I added a roll of paper on the top...
  17. Chess Set

    I made this chess set from cheap fir leftovers. I used a scrollsaw to shape them (dutch-turning). I developed a way to make it look like marble. For the green pieces I painted them black and while the paint was wet I sponged on some various shades of green. I then took a fine paint brush and...
  18. Faith Art: New Frames for the Stations of the Cross at Marion's St. Mark Catholic Church

    Photo 1: Chasing After the Wind: Whew. What a morning. It is windy a lot of the time in Kansas, and out on the open prairie where I live, it is almost always windy. But, when the weather forecast is for "windy", you know it is going to be terrible, and it is today. "Blustery," they call it...
  19. Sparrow

    This is a turning I made the other day out of an old 4×4 redwood post I found. My girlfriend painted the sparrow on it. It's always cool doing projects with her. We have made a few xmas ornaments and decorations recently too that I may post. She does a great job painting. This piece is for...
  20. Engagement Ring Box

    This project was a commission project for one of my colleagues in the costume shop. She wanted a nice compact box, but didn't want any visible metal hardware. I made inset hinges out of the same stock as the splines. She chose the woods, and we ended up going with Patagonian rosewood for the...
