Hi Sam! I see that you are looking into a WW class at Port Townsends school. I looked at their schedule, what class do you plan on taking? I sounds like a lot of fun. I hope to see you around. If you are ever in the Puyallup area, stop in!

I'm over in Bellevue, or as the rest of the world refers to it, Seattle. I'm always up for project days if anyone cares to stop by.

That's so true. People get confused when they see pictures of my place. "Aren't you in Washington?" Yes, the dry side. lol

Hmm, that offer is reason enough to consider the place. Oh, and the coffee.

I plan on taking one of Bonnie's turnning classes at Port Townsend School of Woodworking in October. I'm Active Duty so I need a Pass to travel that far away from Ft. Lewis for the weekend (it also means that I won't have duty then). I'm born and raised in Kent myself, moved to Yelm after serving in Germany and Hawaii.

    • What Topcoat

      A water based poly will not change the color as much as shellac or varnish and should protect the finish from wet glasses or cans. You can rub the finish with a red or green abrasive pad if you don't want the finish satin or gloss .

      Keep your eyes peeled for those" Dental Floss Tycoons "  I hear they are someplace in Montana. Have a safe trip.

      By wdwerker · Posted
      I scorch outside and use a regular propane or MAPP gas torch (burns hotter& faster). Yellow pine works well. Practice on scraps to learn  technique . Scorch lightly or full char , that's up to you. Keep wet rags and a garden hose handy. Wear heavy leather gloves. Wire brush helps clean up areas you scorch to  heavy to even things out. Shellac or rattle can lacquer seals up the char from getting everywhere in the house. I wait a day or 2 before sealing if the wet rag is used to put fires out.
    • Vise question
      By wdwerker · Posted
      If you make them wider than the jaws use 5/4 or 8/4. Maple is a good choice. If you make them a lot wider use the 8/4  (I did mine about 12 to14" wide) If you clamp something off centered you need to make a stack of 1/4 MDF strips and run a bolt thru one end. Then you can swing out a number of strips until they roughly match the thickness of the part being clamped and put it in the other side of the vise. This keeps the jaws from racking and you can clamp the piece securely.
