Building the "Swiss Army Knife" of Small Boats...Wood Duck Double (WDD) #20: Just Had to Sit in the Kayak!

07-04-2020 10:46 PM by DustyMark | 0 comments »

It Fits!This is the stage of the build where you get a very good idea of the boat’s fit and comfort. I placed some shoes under the hull to support it and Mary and I sat in it to discover paddle and feet clearances. A section of roof rake makes a good paddle simulation in tight quarters! I’m thinking that I’ll paddle the kayak solo at a position 48” back from the inside edge of the front coaming. That will leave room for my anchor rig/rod holder board for fishing b...

Building the "Swiss Army Knife" of Small Boats...Wood Duck Double (WDD) #19: Rounding the Edges of Hull and Deck

07-04-2020 06:46 PM by DustyMark | 0 comments »

Prep for FiberglassRounding the edges is a preparation step before applying fiberglass. Some people leave their edges pretty sharp. I like to round mine over a fair bit for comfort and impact protection. This boat will see harsh use being dragged over beaver dams, ramming my way through flooded timber, enduring the dogs claws as he gets back in after a retrieve, and riding in my truck box down dirt roads. Sometimes the epoxy under the joint will appear as I round the edge over, but I don&...

Greene & Greene Thorsen Sideboard #10: Constructing the Top

07-04-2020 03:11 PM by TungOil | 0 comments »

With the majority of the casework completed, I focus on construction of the top. The finished top consists of a 24-3/4” wide center panel with breadboard ends, along with the usual ebony plugs and splines. I begin by resawing a 13” wide, 78” long 8/4” sapele board into two 4/4 boards. After wrestling this piece of lumber through the bandsaw, I am rewarded with two nicely bookmatched boards. I also revealed an end check that will have to be cut off. I stack an...

Building the "Swiss Army Knife" of Small Boats...Wood Duck Double (WDD) #18: Filleting and Fiberglassing the Hull-to-Deck Seams

07-04-2020 06:06 AM by DustyMark | 4 comments »

I Hate This Step!I had planned to wait until morning, but I noticed the epoxy was cured late in the evening and decided to go ahead with it…bad call. I didn’t get done until midnight. This is the worst step in the whole build for me, since these seams are the least accessible. The front hatch is pretty small and I have a size 7 3/4” melon…not a good combination. I gave up trying to work the final passes of the fillets with a mirror and just put on an old hat and my...

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...
