got a couple huge hunks of wood a while back. Kept 'em in plastic. Turned one rough set aside to dry and the thing warped so badly that I am unsure that I have enough wood to take the warp out . I'm thinking of methods of re warping it back a little. Water hear band clamps an inner frame?? Any one tried doing this to save a blank?
I got to the point on this box (and 12 others) where it was time to route out the mortises for the lid stays.... and when I finished doing that... I realized that I routed 'em out on the front of the box, not the back, where the 10mm barrel hinge holes were already drilled out.... After a bit of head scratching....I decided to route out the same on the front of the box, square up the corners and put in some shop made inlay..... and then, still not satisfied, I drilled some 1/8" holes and pounded in some 1/8" round brass stock, sanded 'em down and now it looks like this.... Oh, and had to route out the mortises for the lid stays, this time in the correct place..... Anyways.... this customer will be in for a surprise when he opens his box.... lol
We just bought a salvaged dining table from Restoration hardware. It doesn't seem to have any type of sealer on it. The first time I put a hot cup of coffee on it, it left a ring. When I tried to wipe with a wet cloth, something on the wood rubbed off, and it became a lighter spot. Now we don't dare use it at all. But will need to. What do you recommend we put on this table to prevent stains. This is a current dining table sold at RH if you need more info. I have no idea what type of wood it is or how old. Thanks, Anne
Sunday afternoon I picked up a load of Walnut logs from a gentleman that said the tree blew down sometime back and he pushed it out of the way but needed it gone. Need it gone, I am the person. There is another load that I have to pick up this weekend. I had some lumber ready to pick up at the sawmill so yesterday on my lunch hour I headed to the mill to drop of the Walnut logs and pick up a load of Maple. Once this is stacked, I will take the other Walnut logs and pick up my other load of Maple and Poplar that is ready. I just love fresh cut lumber!
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.
