As stated earlier, my current passion is restoring old things (furniture, machines, etc) and building projects out of salvaged material. Shutter assembly area in the foreground, with melamine and plywood storage in the middle of the picture. The same shutter assembly area in the forground and a bunch of shapers and boring machines along the back wall. This picture shows two of the workhorses in the shop, the 36" Timesaver widebelt sander and the 10' Grizzly sliding table saw.
We do all of our own finishing and have a 12' finishing booth, complete with severalk paint pots, air-assisted airless spray guns, and two drying racks. Before I upload the first restoration project, I thought I would show a little of the woodworking projects we get to make for clients each and every week. With any luck, my personal restoration projects will look half as good as the furniture my employees and I make. The left hand wall of a simple 10'x10' shed is all I have to work with during the evenings and on the weekends. As soon as the weather warmed up this spring, I emptied out the shed, threw away tons of crap, donated a pile of stuff, and organized the rest.
I screwed the file cabinets together and to the framework of the shed, so at least things are stable.
And since the shed is so small, my fabrication often spills out into the yard and onto the patio. I started by disassembling the chairs, scuff sanded the metal, and primed with a spray can of metal primer.
I was going to use vinyl, and while at the fabric store, I chickened out and made the safe decision to go with black.


Beginning with the plastic arms, I rough cut the vinyl, sprayed on Dap contact cement on both surfaces, and began the process of wrapping.
The visible metal was then covered in a second piece of vinyl, and the seam around the perimeter is hidden by the frame of the chair. I worked with my wife to reupholster the seat of an office chair recently and SHOULD have used contact cement to hold the foam to the base. The funny thing is my wife's grandmother ran an upholstery business most of her life - she was probably cursing at me in Polish from above while we were working on the cushion. I work in an office and like to do project that have physical results - woodturning, wood working and things like that since I don't get that satisfaction at work. My wife and I are avid readers and book collectors (so much so that we turned one of the two bedrooms in our small 1000 sq ft home into a library), so a bookend would fit right in.
For upholstery tips and tricks maybe nine4gmc can help as I believe he does it for a living. For years I have know that I needed to go into the crawlspace and clean out decades worth of debris, sweep away the cobwebs, bug bomb, and fix a sagging section of floor.
I finally cleaned up the crawlspace a few months ago, so all I had left was to repair the sagging floor, which was due to a concrete footing that had shifted over the years.
Our goal is to develop not just educated citizens, but engaged citizens actively involved in work to better their communities and the larger world.

She followed up with a second degree from the University of Pennsylvania Law School in 1981. Despite early academic and behavioral struggles, he graduated Phi Theta Kappa in 1998 as a commissioned officer from Valley Forge Military College, and Phi Beta Kappa from Johns Hopkins University in 2001, where he also played football and earned a bachelor’s degree in international relations. Frequently, the common reading is linked to the freshman day of service, as well as an academic lecture featuring the author of the book.

I stumbled across the forum while searching for restoration ideas for vintage industrial desks.
Well, as we have grown, and as I have hired more and more employees, I am doing less and less actual woodworking. I have been collecting stuff (junk?) at a rate that far exceeds my ability to utilize that stuff, but the discovery and acquisition is almost as fun as the creation itself! We have two 5'x10' assembly tables, a 4'x6' mobile table, and several other cabinet specific machines.
My company's shop is 19 miles away, and with a wife and two kids, the weekends pretty much fill up with activities and adventures, so driving out there on the weekends is a rarity.
My brother and I scavenged a bunch of office filing cabinets from a dumpster, and I turned the humble shed into the little workshop that could!
I still need to add some kind of top to the file cabinets, but for now, I at least have a place to stack my projects and tools among the bikes, lawnmowers, and other yard stuff.
That way the chair will pretty much work in any room in our house, since these chairs are actually going to see daily use. As you can see, on the original chairs, the seats had a metal plate, and the vinyl was cut and sewn to follow the curve of the seat. The whole purpose of this project was not to have a perfectly reupholstered set of chairs, but to learn new skills and challenge myself. After rummaging through the scrap piles in the back corner of the shop, I came up with a piece of a gear I found at an abandoned grain silo in central Idaho, and some spalted Alder from the lumber pile. After scrubbing any loose rust and dirt off the cast iron gear I polished it with paste wax in order to accent the patina. I did cap the 3 day weekend off by finishing one of the house projects that has been on my list for a couple of years though, which was jacking up two sagging floor supports under our 90 year old home.


I finally set a goal for myself to have the crawlspace taken care of before we tackle our next huge house project, our kitchen renovation. Outside of the classroom, many regularly publish books and articles, present scholarly works at national and international conferences and serve as field experts to the mass media — through newspaper, broadcast and online outlets. Moore serves on the board of the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, Johns Hopkins University, and founded an organization called STAND! One grows up to be a Rhodes Scholar, decorated combat veteran, White House Fellow and business leader. By joining our free community you will have access to post topics, communicate privately with other members (PM), respond to polls, upload content and access many other special features. Ever since then, I have been travelling further and further down the rabbit hole of tool collecting and shop tweaking. I joke with my employees that if I am in the shop buiding a project, I failed somewhere along the way. There is a brand new edgebander behind the widebelt, and 3 downdraft sanding tables in the background.
I figured a white frame would give me a blank slate when it came time to pick out the color of the cushions.
At first I thought a bright colored vinyl like red or yellow would be nice, but decided that it would be just a tad to loud for our small home. I tried to make the folds match as much as possible from left to right, and tried to make then as crisp and tight as possible.
As my sewing skills improve, I can always take apart the original seat cushions and use them as a pattern for a new ones.
Sometimes I want to get a project done so bad that I will end up rushing, or cutting corners, and make stupid mistakes, only to curse myself afterwards everytime I look at it. After lacquering the Alder, I drilled two pilot holes and connected the pieces using some screws.
Since then, she has written 11 more legal suspense novels, all of which have appeared on bestseller lists, including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Los Angeles Times, Entertainment Weekly and Publisher’s Weekly.

It is kind of hard to tell from this angle, but there is so much stuff scattered all about, that we cannot even move our carts from one area to another. It would also allow me to change my mind and recover the cushions in any color and not have to repaint the frames. This was a new process for me, but the more I use it, the more I think contact cement may be a miracle adhesive when it comes to upholstery! For now, they have taken up residency in our house, and most importantly, my wife and sons love them!
