Building the "Swiss Army Knife" of Small Boats...Wood Duck Double (WDD) #17: Stitching the Hull and Deck Together

07-03-2020 05:05 PM by DustyMark | 2 comments »

Wiring With the deck and hull fully cured, it was time to wire them together permanently A stick of wood laid across each end provides enough clearance to thread the stitches in place. I rolled each end of the wire so they wouldn’t slip out as I settled the two halves together. There are copper stitches about every four inches. You can pull the boat together with packing wrap instead, but I prefer the precision of copper wire stitches. The hull and deck are tacked...

Why Do This?! - The Hand Tool Effect

07-03-2020 02:27 PM by Tom | 22 comments »

This is perhaps one of the silliest things that I have done recently. I needed a dust brush to keep with my Moravian workbench to sweep away shavings and sawdust. I found one at the home center for only a few bucks. It was obviously cheaply made but at least it was made of wood and had the appearance of natural bristles. The handle is poorly shaped and finished. It is basically just a flat piece of wood in the shape of a handle with the corners eased a bit. Very little effort was ...

My Article in Fine Woodworking Magazine (and website)

07-02-2020 08:06 PM by Lenny | 24 comments »

I wrote a “letter to the editor” of Fine Woodworking magazine expressing the journey I experienced after building the Jefferson Lap Desk that appeared in their magazine. After several follow-ups and some discussion, they decided to run the letter as a submitted article. An editor worked with me and as might be expected, made a number of cuts and changes to my submission. Still, it’s a badge of honor to have an article (with photos) published in Fine Woodworking magazine. Below is a link t...

Building the "Swiss Army Knife" of Small Boats...Wood Duck Double (WDD) #16: Fiberglassing the Underside of the Deck

07-02-2020 06:02 PM by DustyMark | 0 comments »

Cleaning Up the Inside of the Hull The epoxy from the first coat on the inside of the hull had cured about 12 hours. It wasn’t at final hardness, so this was a good time to clean up the fiberglass frays that formed during application. A carbide scraper and a little sanding did the trick. I like the scraper since it doesn’t gum up when the epoxy is still not at final cure. I applied the second coat of epoxy to the inside of the hull after cleaning it up a bit. I...

a 21st century bench with engineered wood #3: forming legs and standing it up

07-02-2020 05:51 PM by metolius | 2 comments »

While gluing up sections of boards for the benchtop, I started working on the legs. The legs are to be 3 layers of 1.5 inch ply on the sides with the lower long rail tailed into the middle layer and the upper long rail tailed into the outer layer. The inner most layer of the leg is mortised for the the short rails. After marking out each per tenon, I drilled out the centers and chiseled to fit. A chisel and ply don’t mate for a satisfying experience. I soon found my most ...

Building the "Swiss Army Knife" of Small Boats...Wood Duck Double (WDD) #15: Fiberglassing the Inside of the Hull

07-02-2020 02:03 AM by DustyMark | 0 comments »

FilletsThe panels seams now receive fillets that fill the joints and ease the transition between panels for application of fiberglass tape. I’m messy, so I tape the fillet areas before laying in the thickened epoxy. This step really works. Here’s a fillet. It’s made from epoxy thickened with wood flour. The fillets are next covered with fiberglass tape. The tape is then coated with epoxy. This is what actually holds the boat together. The bulkhead f...

Building the "Swiss Army Knife" of Small Boats...Wood Duck Double (WDD) #14: Installing the Hatch Rims

07-02-2020 01:46 AM by DustyMark | 0 comments »

Hatch RimsI realized that the hatch sills and spacers had cured well during the day, so I glued in the bow and stern hatch rims late last night. That put me a day ahead of what I thought. The rims stops any water that gets past the hatch gasket from getting into the dry compartments. It’s thin and fragile, but once glued in it becomes stronger. Removing WiresThis morning I removed all the copper stitch-and-glue wires. That took about an hour! I then separated the hull and ...
