Smallpatch posted a topic in Finishing TipsStill not there yet. I put the colors on while the football game was going at noon today. I mix my colors as I go. Gotta darken moms blouse for it is too close to the same as the blanket !
What started out as a upgrade to my 12 inch sander spiraled off course and took me here. Plumbed the Dust collection from closest stub down the wall, across the other wall, then finally along the back wall to meet the sander. As with any project I had to make sacrifices. Hardest one here was using a short 90 degree bend around the corner. Normally long sweeps only is the rule of thumb. That works great, most of the time. I tried using a longer sweep but it brought the line of pipe out too far and that interfered with something else, that also would have forced me to move something else. Basically I need 10,000 sq ft shop and the problem is solved. In the meantime this works, and I have not won the lottery or had a relative leave me a mint so we are stuck with it for the moment. LOL
Got a tip from Woodsmith yesterday, but it's an embedded video, so I can't share it here. They take scrap plywood, about 2" wide and cut some plate joiner (biscuit) slots. Glue in a biscuit (will stick out about half) and use like a painter pyramid to raise your work off the table for finishing or staining. He made some with 1 biscuit each that you can put wherever and some with a row of three for things like doors and shelves. If you can't envision this, I'll post some pix after I have made some.
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
