I came across this awesome art work on the web today. Click here to see the full article.
It’s time to add water sealer to you outdoor furniture. I use Thompson’s WaterSeal. Follow the easy instructions, do this yearly and you’ll have long lasting beautiful outdoor furniture. Here is the furniture I recently built with sealer applied, sitting in the rain.
This is a table I made from a beautiful piece of walnut and some maple legs that had just been laying around the shop for some time. After walking by my wood supply everyday, I finally decided these two were going to be my next project. Here is a before picture of all the parts in a pile and then some progression to the completion. I sanded the legs down to their original color and applied two coats of wipe on clear poly. The table top I sanded down smooth and added some walnut wood filler ( It did match before poly was applied) to fill in holes for leg hardware. I applied 9 coats of wipe on poly to achieve a nice glossy top.
This is a drill press table I made out of some left over melamine. The dimensions are 15″ x 18″ x 1 1/2 “. I cut two pieces of the melamine and added hinges on the back , so that I could conceal the mounting hardware. I also cut a 5″x 5” square out of the center for thru cuts with the drill bits. The T-tracks where added for the adjustable fence and hold down hardware as well as stop blocks for exact repeat cuts. The tracks will also increase safety when used with hold down clamps.
My First Attempt at a Adirondack double Chair and table combo with adjustable backs. I flipped the long frame legs over to set the chair at a normal sitting height. I cant stand to sit in a chair thats a lowrider. The second picture is of the material after I milled and shaped. The third picture is the beginning frame work.The fourth picture is of the fan seat backs. The fifth Picture is of the seat backs installed on the frame. The Sixth picture is of the completed chair with it in its tilted mode. Of course the first picture is of my shop dog Roscoe staking his claim on the work just completed. I haven’t put a finish on it yet as my wife and I are contemplating staining it or clear coat. Thanks for looking.
