Nothing. To busy installing flooring in the new house. The miter and band saws are getting a workout though!

Hoping to get started on Mike Farrington’s kumiko lamp project from The Wood Whisperer Guild.

Any luck getting this project started? 👍

In the middle of staining the deck…no furniture this weekend! Made this med cab last weekend out of “home grown” red oak.

Looks great! I like the modern design element of the upper right corner.

Those are really cool! Question. How do you get the colors of the flag to be so vibrant?
Paul76MemberSeptember 14, 2022 at 3:34 am
I torch the individual pieces that make up the face of the flag, then use a semitransparent stain and followed with a satin clear spray

Going to try and get this finished this weekend. Need to attach the top somehow, and I’ve got arm-r-seal coming in the mail tomorrow. Unfortunately while trying to sand some imperfections out of the wood, I messed up some of my lines. My first piece of furniture though, all by hand too. Unfortunately I found out about poplar being great for paint only after I built it, but I’m hoping this will do the tricj

How’d this finish up for you? Any finished or progress pics you can post to the main activity feed? I’d love to see it!

This weekend I was cutting a 1×4 for a small project I’m making using my circular saw and noticed it splintered pretty good. If I change the blade from a 16 tooth blade, (the blade that came on my Dewalt 20v 6 1/2″ circular saw) to a 40 or maybe even a 60 tooth blade. Would that eliminate the split tering
FurnitologyAdministratorSeptember 25, 2022 at 11:25 am
Where is the splintering happening? If at the back of the cut where the blade is exiting, add a scrap piece behind your 1X4 to support the wood fibers from tearing out. You can also try wrapping with blue painters tape, then cut through the tape. That will also support the wood fibers. Yes, a higher tooth cross cut or combo blade would help since you are cutting cross grain, not ripping. Let’s us know what you find success with.

Put painters tape on the cut line

How is the miter station coming along?

That looks really nice! That’s the problem with making nice things, everyone will want one!

I need some help. My wife has challenged me to build a sleigh bed. I have looked at the one on FWW but looking for other plans. Anybody taken one on?
FurnitologyAdministratorJanuary 12, 2023 at 10:27 pm
I haven’t taken one on and don’t have any plans, but Andy Rawls did a YouTube video on one he built. It’s not a project build video, but you might get some inspiration and pick up some tips.
MeasuretwiceMemberJanuary 14, 2023 at 12:06 pm
Wow, great video, thanks. I guess if you’re doing this for a living the CNC pays for itself
