  1. Cake Pop Stands

    Hello everyone. This is my first official project on LJs (and first non-shop project that I've ever done since starting woodworking in October 2011). My sister-in-law is a baker and she makes cake pops, basically lollipops made of cake for those that aren't aware. She was making some for a...
  2. Custom wristwatch #1

    This special little project is finally done. It's my first ever watch case made from Hawaiian Koa and a tiny piece of curly Myrtle. I spent about 30 hours on it and enjoyed the challenge. It took a lot of my skills as a drafter and machinist to make it precisely without any help from a CNC...
  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. My version of the Roubo Bookstand

    Here is my version of the Roubo bookstand made famous to woodworkers by Roy Underhill. Mine is made from pine and sports a little carving to dress it up. I stained it with a walnut stain to give it some colour. I enjoyed making this project and look forward to making another.
  5. Jewelry Storage Mirror

    My wife originally asked for a Full-length mirror, but I also wanted to build her a jewelry box, so I decided to combine the two. Finished the project the week of Christmas. It wasn't a surprise, but she is grateful nonetheless. It's an original design with cues from a few products I found...
  6. Walnut and Pink Lyptus Tealight Candleholder

    This is a tealight candleholder that I finished yesterday as a 40th birthday present for my aunt, made of 4/4-walnut and 4/4-pink lyptus, and finished with Zinsser Bullseye SealCoat dewaxed shellac. It holds 7-tealight candles. The dimensions for the piece are as follows: Overall Length: 16"...
  7. 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...
  8. Finishing
    So I tried shellac under oil based stain on some cherry wainscoting I am building for my office. The shellac is the Zinsser seal coat dewaxed variety, thinned 2:3 shellac to denatured alcohol. I sprayed the shellac with a clean HVLP, and let it dry completely. The shellac went on beautifully...
  9. Finishing
    I've been in the (bad) habit using old zinsser shellac cans to store cut shellac. I opened my cabinet to find a bloody mess. Most of the cans were stuck to the shelf. I cleaned up and noticed that a shellac can had rusted through on the bottom. Admittedly the cans were probably to old-date...
  10. 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...
  11. Woodworking Skill Share
    Please read this before answering: I purchased the one on the left is from Home Depot, product No. 00824. It says Wood Sealer and it says it's a 2 pound cut. I purchased the one on the right is from Rockler, product No. 00854. It says Sanding Sealer but it doesn't say the cut anywhere on the...
  12. Finishing
    From everything I have read, watched and heard I fully anticipate a barrage of opinions on this. I am in such a quandary about this, so hopefully some input of wisdom from the experienced woodworkers can help me come to conclusion before I lose my mind. I have a SheShack that has plywood...
  13. Finishing
    Hey Y'all. I'm working to put finish on a small maple table top (17×24) and I'm having trouble. Here's what I've done so far: sanded through progressive grits to 320 wiped down the top applied one application of Watco Danish Oil, refreshing it for 15 minutes before wiping it down to...
  14. Marketplace Classifieds
    I bought a gallon of Seal Coat and have a sealed glass bottle (with very secure, air-tight lid) that holds about 1/2 gallon. If there are any LJers in the Philly area, they can have it for $15…a full gallon goes for about $75. I bought my gallon about a month ago and separated it to keep it...
