  1. I am in Asheville , NC and my son wants shelves to match what looks like tigerwood. We know it is stained . Looking at maybe alder or red oak. I am familiar with oak but how dark of a stain will alder take (this looks like mahogany, maybe little lighter). And how easy will it be to get that dark color on it. Have not worked with alder before. Or is it better to just use the oak?
  2. New colors

    Did some color work on Beads of Courage bowls. Wood is pecan and it was almost white so adding color.
  3. Easy project

  5. Staining Confusion

    So - there I was - working on my web site to update the colors available on my Quarter Map frames (and other frames). Lately I have been using Varathane stains. The only reason for using Varathane over MinWax or other staining applications, is that the Varathane dries more quickly than others (in my shop). Going after color charts, I visited both Varathane and MinWax web sites. In reading about the two, I came up with completely opposite methods for applying the stain. At http://www.rustoleum.com/en/product-catalog/consumer-brands/varathane/premium-wood-stains, (Varathane), they say: " For Best Results - Stir thoroughly. On bare wood apply the stain across the grain until the wood is saturated on top. Wipe off the excess after 5-10 minutes." At http://www.minwax.com/woodworking-videos/new-featured/three-step-wood-finishing-process(MinWax) they say to apply the stain with the grain. Personally I have always gone with the grain. How about y'all, do you go WITH or ACROSS the grain when staining. I think we all agree that when wiping off excess we go with the grain.
  6. 2nd floor

    From the album CHESTNUT

    HOUSE IN GLEN RIDGE, 150 YEARS OLD
  7. End Table

    From the album Pine Is Fine Custom Cabinets and Furniture

    The solid pine end table is done. We stained it Golden Oak and put a coat of satin polyurethane.
  8. Maple And Red Oak Toy Box

    From the album Pine Is Fine Custom Cabinets and Furniture

    Here is the finished product for the Maple and Red Oak Toy Box. The client picked out an Early American stain, to give it that 18th/19th century look. You can also use this as a heirloom blanket chest.
  9. The $5 Coffin Smoother Rehab

    Awhile back, picked a Scioto works #8 coffin style smooth plane at an antique toy store.    Missing a bolt to hold the iron and chipbreaker together.   Missing the strike button on the backside.    So, Found a tap that was close to the size i needed to make a new thread in the chipbreaker.   Turned out to be a 10-1.5 Metric plug tap.    Ok, we have the matching bolts at work.    Brought one home that I found on the floor.   It came out of the shelving system they use.    Takes a 6mm allen wrench to loosen.   Ground the head down a bit, to almost flat.   And still leave a bit for the wrench to grab into.  Shorten the threaded part a bunch.   had to clear the wedge.    Sharpened the iron  back up, adjust the chip-breaker for a better fit.   Beltsander and sandpaper on a tile to sharpen the iron.   A look at the back side Soaked the wood body in a BLO/ Varnish/ Walnut stain mix.....about ten coats.    Wood was VERY dried out.   Markings on  the iron are from Ohio Tool Co.    Thistle Brand Made in USA Took a handplane to the sole for a tune up. nise was worn quite a bit.   Got the sole nice and flat, and gave it a coat Yep, there is a crack in the heel.    Right where the missing strike button USED to be.   Guess that is why it is AWOL.    Decided to make something to take it's place.    Didn't like the idea of a carriage bolt stuck up in there.   Didn't have a big enough bolt, so, a washer of sorts was made, and a smaller bolt added.    Filled the hole with glue, and tapped the parts in place Almost like a Lincoln's spare tire..... Got everything back together for a test drive The shaving is the full width of the pine scrap I was using.    Had it set a bit deep, though.     Not too bad for a $5 plane
