Pretty stoked with the added security I’ll have on the standard F-style Bessey’s and Jorgensen’s! Now if my whole garage tips over up to about 60° my clamps will be solid! 🤪🤪😆😆 But seriously with my daughter joining me in the shop at times and inevitably pulling on things and the fact that moving long lumber around in these tight quarters always results with banging into something, I’m excited that these neodymium magnets work so well. Buntingmagnetics.com is a great resource I’ve used over the years and these particular 10mm diameter puppies have over 6lbs of pull each and cost a whopping $0.35 a piece! 👌🏼👍🏼 #magnets#woodworking#bessey#besseyclamps#makerbrandco#makerbrandcoclamps#clamprack#clamps#4kvideo#neodymium#rareearth @besseytools_na @makerbrandco
Darker Rustic White Wash Finish.
Put one light coat of a light colored paint. I used a basic white paint. Let it dry.
Take some 220 grit sandpaper and hand sand where the wood grain is most pronounced or where you would like the darker undertones to pop. Remove dust
Take a rag and a stain of your choice. I used dark walnut. Lightly rub the stain color across the entire table. The white color that you put on in step one with darken to a tan color and the grain that you sanded in step 2 will adopt the stain color fully.
Pro tip: You might feel like you are sanding too much to expose the grain. But you will need to sand u til you can see the bare wood under the paint that you applied in step 1.
Pro tip 2: Control the color of the table purely with the amount of sanding you decide to do. The more bare wood that is exposed from the sanding will absorb the true color of the table. If you want a lighter finish like my table you will need to focus your sanding to specific spots of the table.
Isnt it funny how perspective can shift the values of quantity and quality. Do you remember that one time (yesterday) when I was like "waaahhh I don't have enough for my show"..... Well I don't have a million pieces for tomorrow night, so my quantity may be lower than I am used to... But what I do have is several finished pieces that I am proud of and value the quality of.... So stacking all of these pieces, 98% of which have been completed in the last four months, is a new perspective on what I have, what I've worked for, and what I am proud of.
**Disclaimer: no pieces were injured in the making of this photo**
I made a planter stand and stained it using watered down acrylic paint so I didn’t have to use real smelly wood stain. I tried to use pocket holes for the first time but didn’t finish watching the YouTube tutorial so my holes went all the way through the wood and were useless so I ended up using lil peg guys to connect all the pieces. Whatever, live and learn 37/52 #serenamadeit
Each piece we make comes from Nashville. Not only because that's where we're from, but because they are made from wood rescued from this city's century old homes. Interested in a commission or custom piece of furniture? Email us! Hello@1767designs.com
The alarm maintenance guy says to me... " I just need to go in the living room to check the PIR sensor where your puppy is, is that ok"
This is the correct terminology, yes he's 11 years old, yes he has a grey beard and sleeps alot,so, he is an old puppy but he is a puppy nonetheless
Throwing back to this little ditty... love these welcome rounds. These are 17” rounds with ombré stain... really want to work up a batch of these... “Welcome” “hello”... what would you have written on it? #throwbackthursday#throwback#thursday#tbt
