  5. Cubbie Bookshelf

    This is my first official completed woodworking project as a "serious woodworker". I've got a lot to learn but I sure absorbed a lot of information during the process of building this bookshelf. I started out with a design that would properly fit the removable bins that you see pictured...

    I built this toy box as a gift to my mom for Christmas from her grandchildren.

  13. Modern Coffee Table (How to Fake Walnut)

    Modern Coffee Table The Preliminary Idea: I saw on some website (the way all great ideas and projects start, right?) that it's possible with water-based stain to emulate the look of walnut with Poplar. While I've read way too much woodworking snobbery about how this is blasphemy, and 'why...
  14. Finishing
    Hello I am hoping to benefit from WW pros out there. I would like to stain my floors with white stain, about 600 sqft. I believe this wood floor, 2", was installed in the 80s over the original pine flooring (from the 1920s). I was looking at Cabot and General Finish. It seems water based stain...

    Long story short, I built a book case out of birch plywood and some home depot molding. I stained it with General Finishes water based stain. It was a nice, rich color of rosewood. Then I made the critical error of using Minwax water based wipe on poly. It picked up the stain and moved it, what...

    Hey guys, I wanted to try my own wipe-on varnish. I mixed 1/3 parts Tung Oil, Mineral Spirits and Poly. However, I found bought a water-based poly. I want to switch to an oil based poly for my wipe on varnish. Should I sand it and start clean or can I wipe on the new finish over the previous...

    Hello community, I recently embarked on my first woodworking project: a simply farmhouse rustic style table from reclaimed coastal redwood. The great news, the table turned out exactly as I wanted. The bad news, I may have made a mistake with the finish. First I sanded the tabletop using 80...
