    This flag case was made for a friend whose father was an Air Force vet and had passed away. Her mother wanted the case a dark wood, so walnut was definitely in order. It has a maple inlay and is finished with Danish Oil and 3 coats of satin poly sanded to 400 in between coats. Comments and...
  4. Custom cut fence boards

    a decorative entrance cedar fence in front of my faux stick built home….. Practically got carpal tunnel syndrome from the jigsaw. Yes, i used cheap screws to my dismay !!, so as soon as i get a drum sander i'm gonna remove them and run em through a couple passes.
  5. End Grain Cutting Boards

    Here are a few end grain cutting boards I just made. Walnut, cherry, and maple, flooded with mineral oil, then finished off with a coat of beeswax. In one of you photos you can see me cross cutting after the first glue up using the new sled I'm building. I'll post that in a separate project once...

    We built a cedar porch three years ago (we live in VA and the porch is north facing). The builder told us to seal the porch with a mixture of half tung oil and half citrus solvent. We applied that in 2013 and 2014 and now we have black mold all over the wood. We are now in the process of...

    Good morning! I'm relatively new to the woodworking world, mainly building simple furniture for myself and close friends. But I am always looking to learn and get better, so I thought I would join the forum. Finishing has proven to be my biggest struggle. I decided to build a set of...
  9. Woodworking Skill Share
    Hello! I found this idea online and I'm trying to replicate it in my entryway. However, instead of painting them, I would like to keep the natural appearance of the trees/branches (I plan on using birch or aspen). Can anyone tell me if there's something I can coat the branches with (ideally a...
  10. Wood & Lumber
    I am currently building a set of four steak knives as a christmas gift for my parents. I bought the kit from woodcraft, for the handles I cut up a piece of firewood that was cut from an oak tree in thier front yard. In the instructions it says to "seal the wood." What should I use to seal the...

    Hey everyone! First off, I know that this has been asked and answered many a times on here but the rings I'm asking about are a bit different than the rings I've seen in my research here! All the rings I've seen on here are all or mostly wood, but the company I work for does titanium, black...

    Hello all! Newbie here. Just got my shop put together/finished last year but have been working for a little over two years (not including years of home renovation/remodel experience). Still very amateur with fine wood working. I made this pipe box for my brother in law last summer and really...

    I have recently taken delivery on a new dining table purchased from a furniture store. It's not fine furniture by any means but it's moderate quality and nice looking. (https://www.belfortfurniture.com/item/brookhaven-trestle-table/1520857371) It will be the everyday dining table so it will...

    I have some smallish logs - about 2 feet long and ranging from 3 to 7 inches thick. All with bark on. I have sealed the ends and plan on letting some of them dry like that (for turning) and resawing others and sticker them as boards. The resawing part will come later this year once I have...

    I know about butcher's block oil (I think that's it, right?). Are there any other comparable stains, sealers, waxes or anything else? I'm also looking for something that can be used in a smoking pipe, so preferably something that is fire/heat resistant??
  17. Designing Woodworking Projects
    So, my first project is going to be a potting bench for my wife, which will live over the summer on our deck, which faces east. Obviously, I plan to make it out of cedar. My primary questions are: (1) Does the cedar need to acclimate? For how long? I read that wood should acclimate for...
