Woodworking - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Greetings:

I know there is a lot of variety out there in regards to hobbies - you know, that activity you used to engage in before building a family and career. My own interests have always included woodworking, for both furniture and model airplanes. Recently, I completed a restoration project on an 100+ year-old clothes chest that Melanie's great-grandfather made somewhere in York, Pennsylvania. It is made of pine, with hand-cut dovetail joints and held together in places with the old wedge-shaped iron nails that look like horseshoe nails.

Over the course of about three months, I chemically stripped the old varnish, sanded it smooth, filled in dents and dings and missing wood, glued split panels, and sanded some more. Then, it was stained with a dark oak color, and had two brushed coats of clear lacquer applied, sanded and steel-wooled between coats. Finally three sprayed-on coats of satin clear lacquer, steel-wooled between coats, completed the job. 1/4" thick cedar panels were glued together, then cut and screwed onto the inside bottom surface and the underside of the lid. A nice, heavy brass piano hinge replaces the two door type hinges that were not very good, and a black chain keeps the lid from opening too far.

Your hobby endeavours are welcome here, regardless of what they are.

Here is the finished product. A couple "before" shots are included as well.
