  1. Furniture Repair & Refinishing (Creative Homeowner Ultimate Guide To. . .) by Brian D. Hingley Note there is a revised version now that is a shorter book (from what I've heard). Buy a used copy if you can find one (and there are some out there, but not the $66 one). As the title hints, there are two parts to the book. The second half is good and talks about stripping and refinishing. Something most of the other 'finishing' books don't dedicate a lot of space to. The first half is a gem. I bought this when I was starting out in the repair business and found it very useful.
  2. Hey everyone,got a good question?how do fix warped cedar,I have an old cedar chest my parents left me and the top got wet an warped the wood top,now it looks like a pirates chest LOL,need ideas on how to un warp it
  3. I received the new control board and potentiometer late yesterday from Delta. I was pleased that is came a lot sooner than they had said it would. Today I set about replacing it. I started with removing the knobs. The red on/off lever requires an Allen wrench to remove the screw found at the lever pivot location and the speed set knob had an Allen screw which tightened down on the potentiometer shaft. Both came off without any fuss. I removed the corner screws that hold the top cover on and remover it. Notice the rocker switch. The forward/
  4. I made this ornament 2 years ago. It recently to a trip down the steps and damaged some of wood trimmings on it. I wanted to turn it down again to make it slimmer, however I'd probably destroy it trying. So I settled for filling in the missing areas and covering with glitter.
  5. Accidentally caught a pc. of wood and the blade jerked it sideways leaving a bend in it. Any way to straighten it out. I paid a good bit for it, so when you are cheap, cheap, you try to salvage it! Thanks!
  6. So my old drill press is having issues; high pitch bearing whine at top speed (which I use a lot for drilling scrollsaw fretwork patterns), 40+ years old off brand (bought used 40 years ago), chuck just failed, one tooth lower than the other two, can't center a bit. don't know if I can get the morse taper out now (had to use loctite, lowest strength, to get the chuck to stay in the machine) at the time, 30 years ago, I was using a drum sander in the press and any side pressure would make the chuck fall out. loctite fixed it and it has not been removed since. So fix or repla
  7. Any experience using Tite bond to glue'm ends back together that age broke apart? Cya
  8. How should I go about repairing the tear out to this hard maple top? The board has not been sanded yet. All measurements are approximates. Danl
  9. Sorry as I seemed to redirect from the original posting. This chair is actual an old children's rocking chair dated 1912 that was given to my Mother-in-Law as a yound child. My wife now has this chair and from the first time I remember seeing it the seat has been cracked. Further investigation shows the crack in probably the worst location as it goes through where the back post is attached. So from the attached pictures you can see the extent of the crack and it seems I would need to remove at least two of the screws on the bottom plate holding the bottom together, glue the crack and then clam
  10. I received a message from a friend asking for advise on how to repair this broken child chair. It appears from the pic that the chair stretchers do not have tenons. Looking for suggestions to make the joint stronger than just doing the obvious of gluing the broken piece back on. In the 2nd pic the broken leg is being held in place. Thanks Danl
  11. A decent article on some furniture repair. This seems to work best on heavily colored finishes. https://www.ronhazelton.com/projects/how_to_repair_broken_corners_on_furniture?utm_source=Ron's+Weekly+Newsletter&utm_campaign=9a1da10e2d-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2019_02_03_12_43&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_39db751e08-9a1da10e2d-21654377 Is it too obvious that Minwax is a sponsor? There are much better touch up products -- Mohawk, Guardsman, etc. Lacquer based. I've done a few of these. I had a dog chew up a big section of base molding on a buffet cabinet o
  12. so i have this chair that i had to cut the legs back a bit to fit under my desk. not critical but i would like to add some of the detail back i had to take off. but i have to match to current pattern. I was thinking some sort of mold-able clay or something similar. Any thoughts. It has to be able to wrap a bit so i do not think cutting it to match from wood will work. the detail was carved in prior. any thought or ideas would be appreciated.
  13. I have two battery powered LED lamps with clamping and magnets for mounting. After a couple of years, they just quit. yesterday I disassembled one and in doing so I destroyed the lamp housing. When I disassembled it, I discovered that the neg side of each LED made pressure contact only and that handling/usage causes these contacts to dislodge. I soldered a good copper wire to each and fashioned a lamp case on the lathe. I soldered the wires and gooped the end for a tight fit. Works just fine now.
  14. Relatives have been here this week not much shop time. Our Patriot Turners- @Gerald Posted an offset platter he has turned. It's a beauty! Gerald talks about the size and finish in his post- Gerald also showed us a captive ring goblet he just completed. Captive rings are are fun to make but a pain to sand! Gerald describes his turning- Gerald mentioned Mike Peace's video on making the special tool for his turning. If you would like to create your own tool, here is the video- Gerald is ou
  15. I had some repair work to do on some of my faces. The calypso guy was mounted on a stump, up about 3 feet and the stump fell over. Busted him up real good. Fortunately, I found all the pieces.
  16. Saw this piece on AAW forum and thought the bearing info may be of interest to some here. I had a bearing go out on my BS guides and used my last one to fix it . The old ones cost 7.50 each plus 7 shipping from Grizzley so I found 8 bearings for 7.95 on Amazon.I left the whole post intact so the thought of the post is complete. I am a fan of the MultiStar Super 32 live center that I bought from The Sanding Glove some years back. I like a revolving center with multiple tips. I'd burned out an Apprentice one some years ago and tried the MultiStar as it purported infinite life since
  17. I got to work on my mini tailstock slippage. I went to our local farm store where they have larger washers than hardware stores. As you can see from the pictures of the pictures, small is original one piece, large is my assembly of 4 washers (42 cents) held together with JB weld. I had to do a small amount of filing to get a nice fit. I did some testing and it holds good. The clamping surface has probably doubled. The question is.........will JB weld hold. I was going to solder them and may have to if JB fails
  18. Has anyone here had any experience repairing small chips in granite counter tops? I have a corner that is missing about a 1/4" section off the top corner. It's rough to the touch, not too noticeable, but it needs to be repaired, how do I repair this? Thanks guys!
  19. A friend brought over to me a small table........in parts. She said it has been in her family for more than 150 years. I could see where had been repaired before (maybe 3 times) with hide glue and even it was falling apart. She wanted to keep it as original as possible. The top was awful and it looked like it may have been replaced. There were nail holes on the underside that went in two rows. She said she believed it to be Walnut. When cleaning/sanding some areas, the dust was more reddish than Walnut and the wood was very light. However when I applied a finish to the top, it came out lookin
  20. There are a number of ways to repair minor damage or defects. What you choose is somewhat dependent upon when in the finishing process it appears and the type of damage. Dents Dents can occur in the raw wood (AKA white wood) or at any stage of finishing, including in a piece that’s finished and in use. You can often get out small dents, or at least 90% of the damage, by wetting the wood and steaming. In white wood you can just add in some water, let it soak for a while and applying some light heat with an old clothes iron over a damp cloth. (If you like being married, don’
  21. Over the past week or two I've been working on a little bowl turning it from some ironwood a friend sent me. Being this was my first experience with this wood and not knowing how it would turn, it's been slowly progressing. Well I got it almost finished. Inside turned and sanded, outside turned and sanded all that was left was to finish off the bottom. I really liked the calabash rounded look for the bottom so I would need to chuck the piece to have full access to the bottom. A doughnut chuck seemed to be the best option. When I turned the lip, I knew it was a little thin, but it f
  22. When the "WOOD" magazine forums were getting ready to shut down I understood the content was to be deleted. I stumbled across an old post of mine from 2011 the other day. Don't know if all the content is still out there but this one is for sure. Replacing a round tenon Steve
  23. Yesterday I was enjoying a nice day in the shop when a flash of light and the Delta 46-460 started running faster than I had ever seen it before. Turns out a nice sunny day turned into an eight minute wind and rain storm that knocked over a dozen trees in the neighborhood. They brought down the power lines and I figure the electrical surge got the better of the speed controller. I never run the lathe if there is any lightening in the area for that reason and now I'm still screwed. There wasn't a cloud in the sky and as you see in the pictures the sun was back right after the storm. Th
  24. While fitting arms to a rocker I am building, I pared down one side of the tenon a tad too far, and I had tenon that was too loose on side and too tight on the other. I did a little research and found a method that worked beautifully to fix this problem. Since the tenon is the last part that is shaped in the arm, this means I've already invested a bit of time in the arm, so I was not about to trash it over a loose tenon. So I wanted to salvage the arm. I had my own ideas on how to make this tenon tight, small un-viewable wedges in the mortise, among other ideas, but this idea I came upon
  25. It will be a short week in the shop. We head out to Indiana on Thursday. Trying to finish a couple of repairs before we leave. Rocking chairs seem to be finding their way to my shop. I have two on the bench to be repaired. One is just a glue up. Seems the old glue just gave way and it separated. It is now in the clamps and should be out of here today. The other one has a broken rocker. They watch the Gorilla Glue commercials and tried to repair it. Even Gorilla Glue will not hold a broken rocker. So I am making two new rockers for this one. I had an ol
