  1. I had mentioned in another post I was building a desk. This isn't anything really challenging but I want to prove I'm doing something. I need 2 of these, one for a basement area I use and another for our main floor "office". I was planning on doing both in an A&C style, but I now think the second one will be more contemporary. The reason why is that both are computer desks, and I want/need a drop down drawer front for a keyboard tray. The A&C style with inset drawers just doesn't lend itself to that convention. In the pics below you can see the drawer opening...since I don't have a way to hinge the front down (with hidden hinges, and it stay level when opened) I'm thinking it will just be removable, held in place with spring clips. Then the keyboard tray will just pull out. Anyway, I mentioned a week or so ago I had these wide oak boards I would be using. They were supposed to be white oak, turns out all but the one on the left is red oak. I don't like red oak, and never use it...much preferring the white species. But I have what I have, so I went and bought some more red oak to complete the desk, and you can see the dry fitted frame. Nothing remarkable here, but I did do every joint with loose tenons and that worked out OK.
  2. Finished up my sister and brother-in-law's request. Wall mounted box. 3/8" red oak. Over measurements approximately 7.5" wide x 6.5" deep x 10" tall. Piano hinge and key lock. Golden oak stain and satin wipe on poly. Sometimes these little boxes are more difficult than the larger ones.
  3. So I will soon be applying a stain and finish to red oak stair treads. Looking over the selection of products at Lowes I see that Minwax (and others) now market a poly specifically for floors. Do not buy what you have always used, use our more expensive and "made for floors" poly. Is there any real difference? I have not found it in anything less than gallon cans, and I will likely use less than a quart of it. I'm guessing if there is some difference that I could always thin the extra and have a lifetime supply of poly for future furniture projects... Have any of you done any hardwood floors lately? What did you use for a finish?
  4. I'm building a small couch tray table out of Red Oak. The top is 3/4" thick and measures 14 3/4" X 24 3/4". I made the top by gluing up 3 boards. The top is not dead flat. If I lay a straight edge across it I can see light in a few spots. I've been sanding to try and get the high spots down. I don't have a planer or wide sander. I loaned my belt sander and it hasn't been returned. I have a random orbit sander but don't think this will do it for me. There aren't any woodworking close by. I'm going to stain and use an oil based poly on it. I've used poly quite a bit and I'm wondering if the self leveling process will help make the top flat?
  5. Interesting article https://www.woodworkingnetwork.com/wood/components-sourcing/why-does-wood-change-color?utm_source=Real_Magnet&utm_medium=Email&utm_term=byhammerandhand@yahoo.com&utm_content=DAILY BRIEF&utm_campaign=Why does wood change color%3F "If someone wants the same, uniform, predictable color, go with plastic." LOL
  6. I didn't know where to locate this: Last year i noticed some red oaks were dying. The cause was attributed to the drought and catapillars from the winter moths. This year it looks like about every red oak tree in the area had died or is showing signs of serious problems. I've counted over 30 trees, just in my neighborhood that have died. These are large trees, I'm guessing over 100 years old. The younger smaller trees are also bare. I do have one white oak that seems to be doing OK but I'm really afraid I may loose it also. The maple in my front yard has been sprayed for the caterpillars the past two years, and even with the spraying, the leaves are smaller than normal. This appears to be a very serious problem. just wondering if this might be more than a local issue.
  7. I just completed two flag cases to be given to the families of two local veterans. One was a high school classmate who was a career Marine and did two tours in Vietnam. He came home and became a Marine recruiter until retiring. He passed away recently from stroke complications. The second one is for his brothers flag. He died in Vietnam in 1965 and the family never had a case for his flag. The wood is recycled red oak from a local schoolhouse that is being renovated.

    Approx. 200 man hours in the clock counting all the resawing, sanding, cutting, and assembling it.
  9. A few weeks ago I built a quilt rack for a lady here in my home town. It was fun to build so I built another one for a show I have coming up this summer. Shucks, it may be gone before the show.
  10. 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.
  11. From the album: Pine Is Fine Custom Cabinets and Furniture

    This toy box is constructed from maple veneer, with the base and molding made from red oak. Made this box a little bit larger than my others at the request of the client.
