Re: Kitchen make over

Hi Charles

Hard Maple is not abrasive like West Australian timbers. It as a pleasure to use - tight grain and great with detail - but it can tear out on knots really easily ... unless one uses a...

Re: Kitchen make over

Very expensive! I spent around $2000 for the Hard Maple (although I still have some over - now building a matching sofa table). This was mainly in 7 1/2' long x 10" wide and 2" thick rough sawn...

Re: Liquid hide glue

I use Titebond liquid hide glue for everything other than where moisture is involved. Dovetails are great as the glue has more open time and also lubricates, making the part slide together more...

The Devil lies in the details

I completed the Lingerie Chest this weekend, and moved it to our bedroom to recuperate from the cold of the workshop.

It was comforting to see the pieces still looking quite good

Re: Building the Lingerie Chest

My wife says I "may" get the bottom drawer ... if I am lucky.

I did consider a curve at the top, however I think that it would make it look too heavy. The top will be low and the edge be coved...

We left off last time with the drawers completed - coplaner with one another, and then finished in white shellac (Ubeaut).

Re: Building the Lingerie Chest

Re: Building the Lingerie Chest

I need something longer. It will just be used with fine grit to mark the high spots, which I will then plane down. (similar to "colour sanding" car body panels).

Re: Sharpening - chisels, gouges, knives, etc.

Hi Corwin

All Spyderco stones have a slight hollow. I lapped mine out on 250 grit and 600 grit Eze-lap diamond stones. They remain flat and need no work after this.

The Ultra Fine is good...

Re: Sharpening - chisels, gouges, knives, etc.

Corwin, the Extra Fine stone is 1200 grit. That is generally where most waterstone uses begin sharpening!

My current go-to set up is a well broken in Fine (600 grit) Eze-lap diamond stone...

Thanks.

You're not alone if feeling intimidated - I feel this way about many pieces when I start out. The challenge is getting one's head around the angles - especially in this build. The rest is...
