See how to patch broken wood

06-15-2019 11:48 AM by WoodshopTherapy | 2 comments »

Over the years I’ve learned some techniques to repair areas where wood is missing… without wood filler. Finding the right wood to match is the first step, but then what? I walk through three examples of how to patch wood in this video to share some woodworking knowledge. I hope you find this useful. Scott https://youtu.be/dycS6FBro3E

A tray from those Ash scraps #3: Another glue up, and a PIP

04-12-2019 10:33 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Have about one more week to get all that Ash scrap wood used up…then a deck project takes over. But.. This time, I remembered the dividers….had to, as the bottom gets glued on over them..let it sit for a day…the a clean up was done.. Bottom was a tad too wide…we have ways… Millers Falls No. 11….seemed to do the job.. The ends were a bit long, too…sanded them smooth, rather than mess with end grain and planes… Aslo tried to improv...

Alaska Cabin #1: Diamond Willow & Agate Cabin Bed Lights

02-05-2019 10:39 PM by Matt Snyder | 0 comments »

In the summer I work on a remote wildland fire initial attack base in a remote part of SW Alaska. I stay in a small 13’ x 15’ dry cabin. The lights above my bed when I moved in were these ugly canister lights that were in your face and too bright. I knew I could do better. It was a slow fire season in Alaska last year (2018) so in my free time I decided to make some changes and see if I could make things a little easier on the eyes. This is what I came up with. Keep reading to s...

Prepping bone for carving

01-31-2019 01:06 AM by kiwilynne | 16 comments »

Cow bone for carving. Preparing these took roughly three months. Bit more than two underground to let nature strip away most of the leftover flesh. Then dig it out, saw in half, scrape out the marrow. Put in a mixture of vinegar and salt. Then for a few days in water and hydrogen peroxide. Then dry. Voila!

Ukulele #3: Back and neck install

12-07-2018 09:58 AM by Fchilly | 2 comments »

I sanded the uke and laid out the bridge location and installed it. This was very easy with the fretboard already glued in place, and the back not installed yet. After shaping the braces and prepping the neck joint i was able to move on to final installation of the remaining components. Before glueing the neck or back, I set my router a tad shallow and cut clearance for the back’s binding just in the area my router wouldnt reach later rightnear the neck. I glued the neck into place a...

Ukulele #2: Binding and catchup

10-16-2018 07:51 AM by Fchilly | 5 comments »

After a cider or two I decided I had enough confidence for an attempt at the binding. I set up the trim router to cut about an 1/8×1/16 step for a Koa binding. I relied entirely on CA glue to attach this, and it turned out very nice. I havent decided what to use for the backside binding, but i’m considering a maple/koa/maple contrasting strip. I’ll keep my options wide open. The saddle and nut just arrived from amazon, this means I can continue on the neck and the bridge which I’m ...
