Thread: Jim's coat rack with drawers
21/01/2012 14:03:11
Hi Richard

Yeah it is quite alot of projects that I've worked on over the past year trying to build up a portfolio because I got made redundant and couldn't find another job so I started my own business JAG Woodworks and these are just a few if the items I've made to try and sell

No I didn't turn the knobs but I turned the coat pegs though yeah I did half blind dovetails (cheated done with jig) on the drawers just to give it a little extra touch but I've still got a long way to go till I'm up to the rest of your standards

Thread: Plate Rack

Cheers Derek

It's just made from pine and I sell them bare timber so people can finish them to what ever they want?, antique pine with a wax finish or painted farrows cream or any colour they want?

Thread: Sawdust and offcut burners

Hi Eric

Compared to my old workshop that the main room was 40'x20' and a second room that was 10'x10 and an office area aswell it was a bit of a squeeze to start off with but my old workshop leaked like a sieve so I had to move to a new one but I have to pay rent each month

Hi everyone hope you all had a good Christmas and new year?

Can anyone recommend a cheap but good sawdust burner I can use in my workshop because my workshop gets really cold sometimes and it's costing me a fortune to heat it with electric heaters and everything is taking so long to dry

The output doesnt need to be that high as I've only got a 30' x 10' workshop

Any advice or recommendations with be gratefully received

Congrats Oliver I've got the metabo hc 260 so I don't really know about your model but no wishing to teach you to suck eggs but just make sure you set it up properly and you'll see what a difference it makes, if your not sure how to do it the latest woodworking plans and projects (prob not spose to mention rival publications) they have a set up guide which I found invaluable as mine needed to be fine tuned They are such a useful machine Happy machining Jim

Thread: Jims cot
07/05/2009 23:27:44
cheers baz you cant really see it on the cot but on the changing station it has come out quite patchy which i told my missus that it is rustic ha ha but using the sanding sealer first should stop that then and give an even tone thanks again for the advice i've got some more furniture to build so i'll definatly use your method cheers jim
07/05/2009 22:51:37
Baz i did think it was a bit odd myself because having never used it i thought perhaps it might be like when you use pu vanish it would give it a coating that you just sand down flat again before waxing? It was the Liberon sanding sealer if that makes any difference but yeah it def says stain if desired then apply 2-3 coats thoroughly sanding with 240grit between coats cheers for the advice on how to use it properly it do it the way you have said in future cheers jim
