  1. Refinish SKS Gun Stock

    I refinished the stock on my SKS rifle. I applied furniture stripper and scraped the finish off. I sprayed it with Krud Kutter and used a soft brush to get the remaining finish/stripper off. I then put the stock in the bath tub with very hot water and used a soft brush to remove all residue...
  2. Small table

    Small table made out of scraps bankirai (no idea how you guys call that wood species). I've used large finger joints and finished it with 5 coats of wipe on poly and a coat of beeswax. It measures 500mm long, 350mm wide and 250mm high.
  3. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle | Custom

    This is a project that was completed in March 2010. It is a recycle bin. We saw one while on vacation and a friend really wanted one. These are friends that are very generous to our family and I wanted to return the generosity by building one. I snapped some photo's of the original (see...
  4. Anniversary Box

    Ok so some of you may have seen my blog about a prototype for this. The nice box is shown here. I made it out of a block of Leopardwood that I picked up at Woodcraft. Since I do not have a bandsaw I used the miter saw to saw off a piece for the lid. I was able to use my drill press with a...
  5. Oak Hall Tree

    This is one of about five hall tree designs of mine. This one is based on my cousins design. He and his father used to build furniture like me and my dad. Now he has a retail store and doesn't build anymore.
  6. Serpentine Wood Gear Clock

    I present to you, Serpentine Wood Gear Clock. This is a clock that is designed by Jeffrey Schierenbeck and is offered as either plans with a hardware pack or a complete laser cut kit. A couple years ago, I bought the plans from Jeffrey and had planned on building the clock eventually. Well, two...
  7. Chinese Checker Board

    I made a Chinese Checker Board that can hang on the wall while storing marbles in the board. It's made of Maple and Redheart. Check out the YouTube video if you want to see how I did it… I also provided a drill template for anyone that wants to make one themselves...
  8. Simple gift idea when in doubt

    I saw this parts organization holder in an issue of Family Handyman, however I changed it to hold 8 bins rather than 6. The only tricky part is cleaning out the empty oil bottles. My solution is to first drain the contents for a day or so, then mark the cut line using the tote as a guide. I...
  9. 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.
  10. Simple Vanity with tapered legs

    Here is a Walnut vanity that I was asked to build for my brother in law. it was for their powder room with very limited space. they purchased the top and asked the me to make the bottom to fit. It was based on a vanity that they saw at a high end bathroom store, but with a $1,800 price tag...
  11. Lanee's Shelf

    Well there isn't much to this pine shelf. My wife needed some more storage over the changing table, so here we are. I normally don't go with paint, but white goes with the rest of the room.
  12. TV Remote & Cell Phone Holder

    I got tired of looking for Cell phone and TV/TIVO & DVD Remote Control and house phone so finally I made this box out of scrape wood in only a short time. Now all of my remotes and phones are reachable from my lounge chair. I just need to train myself to put them back into the slots. There is a...
  13. Finishing
    Hello! I'm making two adirondack chairs for my parents. I would like to stain them and then paint the Detroit Tiger's logo on the back rests. Now being in Michigan and having cold winters/hot summers I'd like to seal them. Has anyone done this kind of thing before? I've searched the internet...
  14. 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...
  15. Woodworking Skill Share
    I'm building my new workbench. It is a combination of ideas I have seen on at least 3 classic benches and other shop projects. It started out to be all laminated plywood, legs and all, but I decided to put oak faces on the legs; the sides of the legs will still show the 5 laminations. The...
  16. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I'm helping a buddy buddy tomorrow to build a seamless wall. We're framing out a 2×4 stage floor with 3/4" ply on top, then on top of that goes a surface of 3/16" hardboard. Adding difficulty is that near the wall we're curving things up along curved plywood ribs (think fins with 90° circles cut...
  17. Wood & Lumber
    Hi, At the advice of the guy in the Big Box store, I bought some Zinsser SealCoat today - the wax free sanding sealer. I'm going to test it on some scrap walnut tomorrow (I hope) and I was wondering about some of the things I've been reading about it. Many folks have said it's best to cut it...
  18. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hi all. I use a product called seal 1 to clean and protect my guns. Spray or wipe application ion anything rusty. Let sit for a few and wipe off or use 0 down to 0000 steel wool on really bad rusty or corroding metal surface and the results are amazing. The reason for my post is because I have...
  19. Wood & Lumber
    Hi, I'm still new to woodworking (roughly 2 years) and am now facing a problem. I make wooden signs and lately the farmhouse look has been a hit. (Think stained wood, with dry-brushed white latex paint on top, sanded to look worn.) I had never heard of tannins until recently when I researched...
  20. Finishing
    I cannot find an answer to this question on the net, so I'm asking the pros… I carve, print releif, always in real wood, however I purchased a coffee table, sanded down to bare wood. The legs and sides are solid pine, but I didn't find out that the inside part of the table, where I carve is a...
