It’s a little rough on the inside but I sure am proud of this little wooden box. My first without an instructor telling me what to do! 💪🏻 #woodturning #woodenbox #girlswhoturn #theprojectlady

My favorite projects are the ones that use up materials that are bumming around and putting it to use - I used up a bunch of 2x4 scraps and some bed slats from the attic. This little nook in our bedroom isn’t very useful - when a friend gave us the TV and sound system I figured I could put together a workout area. I needed a tall surface for the TV since most workouts are standing - I give credit for @addicted2diy because her entryway shelf was my inspiration. #woodworking #reducereuserecycle #repurposed #diy #girlswhobuild #theprojectlady #2x4

I had fun today! Found a branch and made some napkin rings for the first time . Do I use napkin rings??... I guess I’ll have to now! Swipe to see a bit of the process. #woodturning #learningasigo #woodshop #theprojectlady #yardwaste #walkerturner

I’ve been making spinning tops and I can’t control myself. I woke up in the middle of the night after dreaming of making more so I got up and made a few while everyone was asleep. When Kevin came downstairs to leave for work I was standing in the kitchen spinning all the new ones I made 🤣. The kids stay entertained too! 👍🏻 The process is interesting - swipe to see! #newobsession #spinningtop #lathework #woodturning #polymerclay #ovenbaked #theprojectlady #oak #walnut

A lady contacted me about her old Singer machine someone was “helping” her re-wire. The guy cut the wires to the motor and didn’t feel confident to proceed and while putting the motor back together mashes the wires into a big mess. He also installed the carbon brushes backwards 😩 - ack! If you have an old Singer sewing machine motor that needs repair I can help you out (see link in comments)! #singersewingmachine #motorrepair #theprojectlady

The joy of building is having ideas in your head of what you want and making it happen one step at a time (or trying to). Honestly, all I knew is the dimensions I needed for an aquarium stand, that I wanted turned legs, drawers and a shelf for a bucket. My most favorite part (besides it being done) is that I had everything already and most of the wood has been free and taking up space. I love free. And I love done 💪🏻 #woodworking #freewood #aquariumstand #theprojectlady

If you asked me a few weeks ago I would have said I wasn’t interested in making pens. After looking into it and figuring out all the supplies I would need for my lathe, I placed an order and now I’m hooked. I have since then placed 2 more orders for more supplies. It’s so funny because I’ve walked passed the pen turning isle at #woodcraft several times and didn’t give it a thought. #learningisfun #trynewthings #woodturning #theprojectlady

The #coffeetable top is getting attention today. It’s all about sanding and smooth brush strokes (x3) for each side. With each coat it gets better and better. The color sample that was chosen matches - success! 🙌🏻 #commisionedwork #woodworking #oakwood #generalfinishes #transfast #theprojectlady

These cushions weren’t as full and plush as I wanted (left chair) so all I had to do was wrap the cushion in upholstery batting! - see the difference it makes (right chair)!? #ilovediy #smallimprovementsmakeabigdifference #theprojectlady

Onto the next project - a large square coffee table out of oak. I designed the legs on the computer and turned them today - fun to see them in real life. Apron pieces assembled and top pieces planed and ready to be doweled and glued. #oaktable #commissionedwork #woodturning #hurricaneturningtools #diy #girlswhobuild #walkerturnerlathe #theprojectlady

I’ve been busy the last week working on prepping the oak table for finish, applying finish, sanding, applying finish, sanding, applying finish. That’s right - it’s a huge job! I’ve found the best process is to spray the finish and use a brush to blend evenly and push into the pours of the oak. The top is too heavy to pull outside and flip over for each coat so I brushed the finish on inside the garage finishing the backside first and then the top. ALMOST DONE 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 (swipe to see pictures) #girlswhobuild #diy #woodworking #woodfinish #theprojectlady #woodshop

Here’s some finish samples I made for my customer. I like that you can achieve a darker color with each coat applied so you can take it one step at a time and decide when you want to stop. The darkest sample was achieved by increasing colorant nearly 40% with 3 coats (swipe to see products used). The weather here is finally clearing up for finishing! 🙌🏻🙌🏻 #generalfinishes #transfast #colorsamples #oaktable #commisionedwork #diy #woodfinishes #theprojectlady

Working on making some samples for the table finish. Adding a bit of gray #transfast colorant to the clear coat for a tint. Woodcraft recommended adding the M-1 product to help the flow and leveling of the clear coat from being sprayed. Has anyone used any of these products?- what did you think?#generalfinishes #makingarecipe #woodshop #sprayfinish #diy #theprojectlady

When there’s downtime in the shop you find something to do. Oh.. look, those clamps look like they want to be rubbed down with oil! #takecareofyourtoolsandtheylltakecareofyou #woodshop #theprojectlady

It’s taken me 3 separate glue ups to put the oak table top together. The boards are big and heavy and take a while to glue up with the dowels. There’ll be TONS of sanding tomorrow after cutting the ends to final size. #commisionedwork #oak #table #diy #girlswhobuild #theprojectlady #woodshop #woodworking

Today I used my #dowelit jig for attaching the cross braces on the table apron - such an easy tool to use! #commisionedwork #oaktable #woodworking #diy #woodshop #girlswhobuild #theprojectlady

Today I worked on the corner braces for the table that the legs bolt onto. The angle jig for the drill press worked wonderfully for this project! #woodworking #oaktable #commisionedwork #woodshop #diy #girlswhobuild #theprojectlady

It feels good to be back in the shop working on the oak table! I ran a corner of each leg through the jointer a few times to make a flat edge to install hanger bolts (so legs will be removeable), then I made a jig for holding legs while drilling on the press. #oaktable #commisionedwork #woodworking #diy #shopmade #theprojectlady
