  1. weekend project

    Guys, I got two coats of stain and started with a sanding sealer before that. Am happy with the color but I screwed up and supported the top with painters triangles which have now dug into the top, I'm thinking after the second coat of stain dries I'll try the iron trick to get them out? does that sound doable?

  3. weekend project

    Its going at the end of a couch. Lamp drinks and knick knacks.
  4. weekend project

    Fred why is that? I have to say working with it it almost felt like it was wet. This was some old tongue groove boards that I reclaimed from an addition that was rehabbed. Wood was at least 40 years old.
  5. weekend project

    Most is southern yellow pine, with some doug fir mixed in. The stretchers are mortised and tenoned into the legs and the skirts are pocket screwed. The drawer was build with lock rabbit joints and added a piece of 3/8 bead board ply into the 1/4 groove for the bottom. Added runner and kicker to keep it tracking nicely.

    If no-one has taken you up on this great offer I will. Would love to see the difference between the ones FRUED and Craftsman blades I have been using. Just saw the spoken for edit. oh well too late again.

    If your talking about the link I mentioned, Andy's Stave Bucket Calculator.ods
  11. Lighthouse plan

    Guys, I'm back at another project with the same type of cuts so I figured I would add it here. How can we proceed from this drawing to calculate blade tilt and angle for cut these pieces on the table saw? I want to make jigs as I know I'll be making way more than one when the family ladies see them. Stick what program was the link for the calculator that you added? I can't open it.
  12. vise leather

    Good morning guys, over the weekend I added some suede to the inside of my woodworking vise using Scotch 77 super glue which doesn't hold well enough for my liking. Couple questions, I bought some heavier leather now and am wondering what to attach it with? I've read two sided tape Titebond glue, as well as some Titebond hide glue. Can anyone share their personal experiences? Second question is it any better to put leather on both sides of the vise? Thanks Pat

    Thanks Lew, I hope this old dog can learn a new trick.
  14. Transfer Switch

    What your describing is for larger systems. This is a unit I've installed for about 30 customers and works very well. You need to do some homework on what your generator can handle and match the breaker sizes correctly. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000HS2L3O/ref=asc_df_B000HS2L3O5168146/?tag=hyprod-20&creative=394997&creativeASIN=B000HS2L3O&linkCode=df0&hvadid=167146984279&hvpos=1o2&hvnetw=g&hvrand=5242200763483635963&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9003650&hvtargid=pla-310347780217
  15. First Christmas ornaments this year and a couple bowls

    Truly great work, fine delicate finials. The bottom of the live edge bowl with the burned in design is really unique.
