Interesting Lumber Source in Portland, Oregon

08-03-2020 05:47 PM by gdaveg | 1 comment »

I stumbled across Goby Walnut Products about 2 years ago searching for live edge wood slabs. Here is a link: They specialize in large wood slabs, especially walnut and maple, with occasional myrtle, redwood, etc slabs. But their real value to me is they sell the short ends from their slabs by the pound ($1.25/# approx). So sorting through the boxes of walnut and maple shorts I can make projects for less money. There is a cost from waste. Th...

The Pursuit #4: Rehab, back bevels, and horse butts

08-03-2020 06:14 AM by sansoo22 | 0 comments »

It’s been awhile since I posted anything about my plane passion…err…maybe obsession is more apropos. Since I’ve been doing a lot of restorations lately I started playing with some new sharpening techniques I hadn’t tried before. So today I want to show how I do a simple iron rehab as well as the new techniques involved and some quick results. Lots and lots of pics in this one so buckle up. First up is an iron from a Type 18 #5 dated 347 or March 1947 for ...

Building the "Swiss Army Knife" of Small Boats...Wood Duck Double #44: Dog Cockpit Attachment

08-03-2020 05:33 AM by DustyMark | 0 comments »

What We Do for Our Pets!Copper has great small boat manners and he’s fun to take kayaking, so I’m building him a place to sit in the new kayak. The solo spray deck has a rectangular coaming ring behind me and that’s Copper’s spot. The dog cockpit attachment is a 1/4” plywood box with two sections of trim around the perimeter. 3” up from the bottom is a 3/4” by 3/4” piece of trim that rests the attachment on top of the coaming ring. The...

Today, spent two one hour sessions in the shop. First hour (forgot the camera) was about removing the clamps from the case… And then get all them parts milled to make the drawers. Those ridges were planed off with a #4 smooth plane…sides were milled for width and length… Plywood for the drawer bottoms was cut to size. 6 drawer backs were milled to size. Drawer sides needed to rebates, one on each end,,, The ones in the back are for the thickness of the drawer...

Jefferson Bookcases #2: Building the plinths

08-03-2020 02:06 AM by Dave Polaschek | 8 comments »

For this style of bookcase, there is a plinth, which serves as a base, supporting the stack of boxes. Since the plinths are mostly hidden, and the weight is mostly carried by the four glue blocks in the corners, I figured they were a good place to start. Half of the dovetails will be hidden, and only one of the four boards is very visible. Here’s my checklist for building the plinths, along with some pictures of the intermediate steps: Cut all the boards to length. There are three dif...

Building the "Swiss Army Knife" of Small Boats...Wood Duck Double #43: Front Hip Braces

08-03-2020 01:39 AM by DustyMark | 0 comments »

Different ApproachThe front hip braces are different since they’re anchored at the top to the spray deck. That way there’s not a permanent cleat below the coaming in this busy area. Here’s the assembly (upside down) ready for gluing the lower cleat to the floor. This is the hip brace cleat for the middle paddling position that I installed last night. I was happy when I was able to confirm that it doesn’t get in the way of my foot when paddling from the ...

Building the "Swiss Army Knife" of Small Boats...Wood Duck Double #42: Hip Braces

08-02-2020 03:49 AM by DustyMark | 0 comments »

End PourI did the epoxy end pour of the bow yesterday. The objective of this step is to provide a strong means of mounting the pad eye on the bow. My parents came over for dinner and my Dad helped me flip the kayak onto its nose and tie it to the ladder on the rear of my camper. Sorry, I forgot to take a picture. This is 8 ounces of lightly thickened epoxy and it cooked off pretty good with so much epoxy in such a tight area. There was no good way for the heat to escape from the ch...
